Event Details

Living Kindness: Buddhist Teachings for a Troubled World

with Kevin Griffin

Walk-in registration welcome! Scholarship available at the door.

Loving-kindness, or metta, is sometimes depicted as a simple “open your heart and love everybody” practice, but a closer look at the Buddha’s teachings reveals a more complex and nuanced picture. In a time of great conflict and contention in our society, it can be valuable to instead look at how the Buddha addressed living kindness.

Several early Buddhist suttas illuminate these topics:

  • Practicing non-ill-will toward difficult people
  • Acting with integrity, morality, and ethics
  • Living a harmonious homelife
  • Letting go of grief
  • Developing mindfulness and concentration through metta practice

The retreat will include meditation, lecture, small group discussion, and Q&A.

Join us with Kevin Griffin on March 30th for TBIF too!
