Metta (Loving Kindness) Meditation Workshops




Metta Practice workshops

Half-day sessions from 10.00 am to about 2.30 pm.


Workshops are set up by request.
Please contact by email if you wish to do one.

Note: This session is suitable for meditators with some regular
Vipassana (Insight) or Samatha meditation experience.


Workshop details



Initially there is a theoretical introduction to the 4 Brahma Viharas:

Metta (Loving Kindness);
Karuna (Compassion);
Mudita (Empathetic joy)
and Upekha (equanimity).

You are shown how to calm and clear the mind.

You are led to chant for the well-being of all.

You are guided to use visualization to intensify the practice.

This is followed by a look at how these qualities can be developed
and what the benefits of doing so are.


There may be a discussion about the power of the mind
and the effectiveness of synchronized global meditations.





The courses/workshops will be led by Acharn Helen Jandamit

* Instruction will be in English.

* Participants should be in good health and will normally be over 18 years old.

* Meditators should wear comfortable, conservative clothing in light colours.
The meditation room is air-conditioned, so you may need a sweater.

* Coffee, tea and soft drinks are available.

It is not necessary to be a Buddhist to attend
but openness to Thai Buddhist culture is important.

for those with previous Vipassana (Insight meditation) or Samatha
(concentration-based meditation) experience
by request - see below.
