September 18 – Treating Ourselves with Kindness

Metta, or loving-kindness, shows us that a simple, gentle thought can have powerful life consequences. This evening we will explore Metta both as a mental intention and as a felt experience in the body. If your inner voice is harsh and self-critical, this evening will provide a necessary dose of self-compassion and kindness.
