Day-Long Retreat – The Four Immeasurables
“As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery… we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.” –His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
Join us for a day dedicated to cultivating the Four Immeasurables (Brahmaviharas). The Four Immeasurables are practices that open the heart, allowing you to deepen your relationship with yourself and others. The cultivation of equanimity, loving-kindness, compassion, and empathetic joy helps you to counteract distorted and harmful mental and emotional states. This provides the foundation for living a meaningful and fulfilling life in alignment with one’s own personal spiritual beliefs and values. One does not need to be a Buddhist to benefit from these practices; they are universal to people of all faiths, traditions and cultures.
