The Way of Metta: The Radical Power of Kindness

Wednesday 27th April 2022
7:00pm - 9:15pm

Led by Sadayasihi

A 5 week in-person and online course exploring the Buddha’s teaching on the transformative power of kindness

“The way of metta is not only a path of ever-increasing positive emotion leading to Enlightenment. It is a guide to recovering our basic human inheritance of joy” – Sangharakshita

The Buddha is renowned as the embodiment of wisdom and love. He also represents the fullest flowering of human potential.

On this course we’ll be studying the Buddha’s words on metta – loving-kindness – and how they point out a path to realise this potential. We’ll be putting his teachings into practice starting with identifying more skillful ways of living; cultivating a vigorous imaginative identification with others; and freeing our mind through the development of wisdom.

The course will include an introduction to the metta-bhavana (development of loving-kindness meditation) and is suitable for newcomers as well as people who wish to intensify their practice and glean new insights.

The course is based upon Sangharakshita’s book Living With Kindness. To do the course, you will need to have a copy of the book, which you can purchase in eBook format and in printed format (received in the post) from Windhorse Publications.

A Hybrid Course

This course is offered both as an in-person and online course.

While all of our events are offered on a donation basis, to attend our courses in-person we ask for a deposit of €30 to secure a place as space is limited. To attend the course online, no deposit is required but we encourage you to make a donation to the DBC.
