Meditation as an Act of Love
with Anushka Fernandopulle
When we develop meditation as loving awareness, we cultivate a way of life that is a beautiful way to live and that develops wisdom and balance. This kind, gentle awareness brings mindfulness and metta (Kindness) practice together as one. We pay attention well to what we love and we learn to be present with a warm, open view for whatever shows up. Join us to explore meditation as an act of love.
This event is part of our Women in Buddhism series. See other offerings within this series here.
