The cultivation of lovingkindness plays a significant role in the process of Awakening.  Clear insight must be integrated with benevolent intention.  This retreat is intended to increase a person’s insight into the value of lovingkindness, but also provide direct training in the cultivation of  kindness as a way to steady the mind and heart.

The teacher is Peter Carlson, who has been on many retreats over the last 40+ years, including three that focused primarily on the cultivation of lovingkindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity, the “Four Divine Abidings”.  He is the founding teacher for the Orlando Insight Meditation Group, a nonprofit corporation.

The retreat is suitable for beginning as well as more practiced meditation students.
