The Bramaviharas: Metta (Loving-kindness)
July 19 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PDT
In this talk, Tina will describe the first Bramavihara (Divine Abode of the Heart)–the Metta (Lovingkindness) practice. She will talk about how to do the practice, the misconceptions about the Metta practice, the “near and far enemies” of Metta, how to work with hindrances and defilements in Metta, and how Metta works with other practices as an antidote.

About The Teacher
Tina Rasmussen is a meditation teacher who leads retreats and offers spiritual guidance and mentoring to practitioners worldwide. Her mission as a teacher is to foster awakening and its embodiment in worldly life, through the application of authentic, rigorous Buddhist and modern practices.
Tina learned to meditate in 1976, at age 13. In 2003, after many years of practice in Buddhist and modern non-dual traditions, she undertook an intensive year-long solo retreat during which a profound awakening to Reality occurred. In 2005, Tina attended a retreat with Burmese meditation master Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw, who ordained her as a Buddhist nun. During the retreat, Tina became the first Western woman to complete the entire Samatha path in this lineage. Tina was authorized to teach by Ven. Pa Auk Sayadaw of Burma. Tina also took refuge with Tsoknyi Rinpoche, a Tibetan Dzogchen teacher, and was initiated into the Nyingma lineage.
