Meditation is a journey of bringing the mind into the heart. ‘Vipassana’ means seeing clearly. ‘Metta’ (loving kindness, heartfulness) practice cultivates our capacity for kindness and non-contentiousness. The combination of mindfulness and loving kindness is a powerful way to develop clarity, contentment and compassion, in the quiet environment of retreat as well as in the midst of the chaos of our every-day lives, and helps us to tap into our inner sources of kindness and wakefulness.
