Gentle Face: Remembering Loving Kindness with Kath Mitchell
Friday 25th 5pm — Sunday 27th August 2pm
Kindness is natural and unconditional, you don’t have to deserve it, or earn it. Kindness is already here, within you. What a relief to remember this and know that love is always present and available. The gentle face of loving kindness is only a remembrance away.
Each moment that we recognise Loving Kindness, we reconnect with this source of nourishment. The present moment transforms into a nurturing space, increasing our capacity to be with whatever we are experiencing.
Many of us find it easier to be kinder to others than to our ourselves, and what arises in our minds can be challenging and painful. Through cultivating kindness, we can strengthen our minds and allow our hearts to open; to be present with whatever is happening, in the changing world and in our relationships with ourselves and others. This experience is one of wholeness and interconnectedness.
In this weekend retreat we will learn a traditional Loving Kindness meditation and explore other creative ways to connect with Loving Kindness. As we attune our hearts to kindness, we learn to rest into this gentle way of being.
This course is open to anyone who is interested in having more kindness present in their life – no previous experience in meditation is needed.
