Metta Mandala: 2-Week Meditation Challenge


  • Yoga on High 1020 Dennison Avenue, Suite 202 Columbus, OH, 43201 United States (map)

Date

November 1-15, 2019

Cost

Donation of $10, $25, or $50 to the Yoga on High Foundation

YOFO November will plug you into a 3-dimensional web of love, kindness, community and compassion! 

Let’s make a Metta Mandala!  Imagine it - invisible threads of kindness connecting points, people, places throughout our whole city and beyond.  

What is Metta?  Just as we notice the breath and the sensations in our body, it is also a practice—a Metta, or loving kindness practice—to consciously share warm wishes with ourselves and others.  These practices build self-love, compassion, tolerance for being with what is and also connect us to the underlying unity of experience.  Metta meditations are meant to illuminate compassion and tolerance by shining light on the fact that we all deserve love.  Our hope is that by practicing Metta, we will invite space for personal and community healing and joy.

So, are you ready for a body-mind-heart connection?  Join in!  For the first 2 weeks of November we will collectively align to weave a stronger, steadier, more loving community.  It’s time.  We hope that you will join us in creating this mandala of light. 

Here are the guidelines:

Metta translates to Loving Kindness, join us for 2 weeks of Metta Meditation!
