The Art of Loving Wisely: A Buddhist Meditative Approach
A half-day retreat with Matthew Daniell, Saturday January 28, 10 am – 12:30 pm
Internal Arts New England
To love and be loved wisely is one of the greatest joys and also one of the greatest challenges of being alive. Often wise love feels like a fleeting gift that we can’t control. True enough, but it also expresses qualities of the heart that can be discovered and cultivated intentionally. The Buddhist practices of mindfulness and loving kindness can positively affect the quality of how we relate to ourselves, those close in our lives, and all those we encounter in our daily lives. In this half-day workshop, guided and silent sitting meditation sessions will be combined with walking periods and time for discussion. New and experienced meditators alike are welcome to attend, as we explore Buddhist-inspired skill sets to help us to love wisely, and live deeply, in the present moment.
The fee for this workshop is $45.
