Dates: January 10th to the 13th 2018
Location: Won Dharma Center in Claverack, NY

It was heartening to hear the wise words of Martin Luther King quoted by the Reverend Michael Curry at the Royal Wedding this May that, "We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we do that, we will make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way."

The ancient Buddhist teaching of metta meditation is a training in discovering and harnessing this power of love. The sutta's say in practicing metta we familiarize ourselves with this particular quality, we see it's effect on our own mind and body and how it expands our hearts and minds, overcomes our fears and self doubt and we thereby gain faith and trust in it as a truly trustworthy, helpful and powerful force.

In this silent meditation retreat we will learn practice and familiarize and grow in our hearts this kind of love along with the other Brahma Viharas, the highest abodes of the heart mind in Buddhist psychology. It will be a time of silence and intensive practice.
