The literal and metaphorical heart of all Buddhist practice is friendliness (Metta) and outgoing kindliness (Karuna). Both of these constitute mindful approaches to both ourselves and others and without them the practice can feel cold and detached. These were considered to be so important that the Buddha saw them as pathways to liberation in themselves. This retreat will be devoted to practices that cultivate friendliness and kindness in both the heart and mind.
