Metta Practice with Cynthia…

What is Metta? 

The word Metta comes from the ancient Buddhist language of Pali. Metta is loving kindness, universal love, and a feeling of heartfelt concern for all living beings, in all situations. 

What is Metta Practice?

This practice offers opportunities for gentle self-healing, connecting with heart wisdom
and inviting grace into our daily living by cultivating mindfulness
and developing compassion for oneself and others… 

    Sessions will include:

  • Sacred Sound Immersion with healing tones of crystal singing bowls, chimes, temple bells, Sansula kalimba and Guda brass tongue drum; songs & mantras with harmonium and other instruments.

  • Guided Meditation to relax & restore the body, mind & soul, while opening the heart & connecting with its wisdom;

  • Spiritual Storytelling using legends, myths & short stories to shine light on  the creative mind, connecting with the heart & inner knowing.

  • Exploring Individual Deities, understanding the symbolism & wisdom of their parables. Learn powerful mantras that unite us with ancient healing vibrations, with others & our highest truth.

  • Mindful Movement to deepen kinesthetic learning, to calm the nervous system  & ground ourselves into the present moment.

  • Aromatherapy to promote inner peace, rejuvenation & a joyful spirit.

  • Safe & Nurturing Environment that enhances deep comfort.
