You are kindly invited to enjoy a weekend retreat that will balance calm meditative insight with applicable tools of contemplation for your practice of happiness and wellbeing. The Four Immeasurables are a core aspiration in Buddhism; constituting the fundamental requisite condition for the release of all sorrow, anxiety and other negativities threatening our health, our families, communities, and perhaps our planet.
Becoming fully familiar with the true nature of these states, and their interdependence–supporting and reflecting onto each other—we gain a clear inner strength allowing us to be more open and available. With a heart softened through practice, we contact our true natural compassion and a genuine willingness to be of benefit for others.
By practicing whole-heartedly, fueled with Bodhicitta, the reactive patterns of the dualistic-self dissolve, expanding our capacity to directly experience these four boundless, immeasurable states: the ease of equanimity, the open-heartedness of love, the tenderness of compassion, and the radiance of joy. What relaxes, ultimately, is the relentless and ignorant attachment to the sense of self–I, me, my and mine–so we may embrace the wisdom of our true nature. The Four Immeasurables—invite us ALL to develop our boundless hearts, whether you are a seasoned practitioner or a new-comer to MMC, everyone is welcome.
