Scattering Loving-Kindness Here, There & Everywhere
November 6 7:30 pm - November 7 4:30 pm$50.00
During this Labyrinth Retreat experience, participants will be invited to be intentional about holding self and others with compassion during this time of global uncertainty. The labyrinth will be blended with the practices of loving-kindness through the Peace Prayer of St. Francis and Pali Metta Prayer. The practice of metta encourages enfolding self, others and the cosmos with the energy of loving-kindness while keeping our hearts open, forgiving, merciful and loving! The intention of this retreat is mirrored through this Eastern wisdom: “Radiate boundless love towards the entire world – above, below, and across – unhindered, without ill will, without enmity.” (The Buddha)
During this labyrinth journey, music, diffused essential oils, and other symbols will be used to bless the space. This retreat includes personal reflection time, journaling, sitting in silence among fellow seekers in sacred space. A simple creativity process will be created reminding us to scatter loving kindness daily! This offering is a time for your soul to stretch, pause, breathe, listen and offer compassion that is unreserved and far-reaching beyond oneself.
Friday, Nov. 6, 7:30 p.m. through Saturday, Nov. 7, 4:30 p.m.
Private Room: $130; Commuter: $89. Registration deadline is Oct. 30.
