Lakeland Meditation Group is excited to offer a short course on loving-kindness and compassion meditation at the beginning of the holiday season. Loving-kindness meditations are healing contradictions to anger, sadness and worry, and help us to feel more at ease and connected to others.

Whether you are new to meditation, experienced in other styles, or an advanced student of Vipassana, this class is suitable for all levels. We offer a safe and welcoming atmosphere for learning and practicing.

In this 4 hour course, there will be teachings, practice, question and answer periods, and a short break in the middle. We offer beverages and snacks courtesy of the Lakeland Meditation Group.

“If there is love, there is hope that one may have real families, real brotherhood, real equanimity, real peace. If the love within your mind is lost and you see other beings as enemies, then no matter how much knowledge or education or material comfort you have, only suffering and confusion will ensue.”
