A Soft and Radical Transformation of the Heart, a Metta Retreat


Pascal Auclair

January 28-31, 2019

Galilee Centre
Arnprior, ON

$395 / $450 / $500
Deposit: $200

The practice of Metta (loving kindness) brings warmth and ease to heart, mind and body. As we cultivate the joy of friendliness we learn to transform anger, jealousy and old resentments into deep caring. We also discover that guilt and judgment can be the basis for kindness and compassion to arise. This is an invitation to a soft and radical transformation of the heart.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions and have interviews in both French and English. There will also be an optional Feldenkrais movement session (Awareness Through Movement).
