Eightfold Noble Path–Bringing Metta into our Lives

Topics Include: 1) Review of the three kinds of right thought. 2) The relevance of lovingkindness in a time of political division, polarization and hatred. 3) How do we love someone whose values or behavior we cannot accept: learning how to take a larger perspective when looking at difficult people. 4) Seeing people in their basic humanity and not as particular individuals. 5) The actual practice of metta meditation. It’s not about the people to whom we direct metta. It’s about us. 6) The Buddha’s metta sutta. 7) Bringing the principles of metta in our daily work environment: a personal example. 8) Comparing the concept of forgiveness in a Christian context to lovingkindness in a Buddhist context.
