Metta Retreat: Lovingkindness

  • Insight Meditation Society 1230 Pleasant Street Barre MA 01005 (map)

Seven-Day Retreat

This retreat is full with a waitlist of over 140 people. Please consider choosing another retreat.

Metta is the Pali word for friendship or lovingkindness. It is taught as a meditation that cultivates our natural capacity for an open and loving heart. With its roots in practices said to have been taught by the Buddha himself, metta is traditionally offered along with meditations that enrich compassion, joy in the happiness of others and equanimity. These practices lead to the development of concentration, fearlessness, happiness and a greater ability to love. 

This silent retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators.

All scholarship funds have been awarded.
