Recordings - Meditation Instructions

In the Theravada form of Buddhist practice there are two forms of meditation, Metta (Loving Kindness) and Vipassana (Mindfulness). Below are two courses given over a period of weeks, one in each of these forms. These were given on a weekly basis, so if you want to go through the entire course it is suggested that you do the same, listen to a week's lesson, practice that every day for a week, and then come back and take the next lessen. This will allow the practcie to mature.

These lesson are based directly on the Satipatthana Sutta, the Buddha's instructions on Mindfulness and the Metta Sutta, the Buddha's instruction on Loving Kindness.

Metta - The Practice of Loving Kindness
A 7-week course in Metta (Loving-Kindness) Meditation based directly on the Buddha's teachings, given during my regular Thursday evening Sangha in the fall of 2020. Metta is a heart centered practice. In the Theravada tradition it is seen as a balance to the more mind centered practice of Vipassana.
