The Brahmavihāras, or Divine Abodes, are ancient Buddhist heart meditations, and related practices, that reveal and awaken our deepest nature’s heart qualities. During this retreat, we will explore the meditations, practices, and common resistances to these four heart qualities: Equanimity (Uppekhā), Empathetic Joy (Muditā), Compassion (Karuṇā), and Loving-Kindness (Mettā).

The format of the retreat includes:

  • talks, instruction, and guided meditation practices
  • group discussion on the practices and experiences
  • ample opportunity for questions or comments with Stephen
  • three-month access to the retreat recording
