MettaUnfolds__sm“May my heart always be open to little birds” – EE Cummings

An intensive meditation weekend inviting the heart to be open and listening deeply to what it is trying to tell us. Just sitting with the wisdom of the heart, we are breathing in the world and breathing out our influence on the world, allowing the mysterious process of the bodhichitta to manifest in our experience. Come along and find out where your heart will take you. This meditation weekend retreat is open to those with previous experience of meditation.

* At Aryaloka, we strive to make our programs available to everyone regardless of their financial circumstances. Our fee structure allows you to pay according to your means. The Sustaining price is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Sustaining price level also helps Aryaloka offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend. Any payment above this price is a tax-deductible donation. Mid-Level prices are for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Aryaloka’s operating costs. The Base-Level price is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge. Those whose circumstances are not included above can call the office to arrange alternate pricing.

* Retreat participants are asked to work together to prepare and clean up after meals and to help with general cleanup at the end of the retreat.
