Many people find that consistency of teacher and group is a supportive way to learn both of the practices we teach, the Metta Bhavana (the development of loving kindness) and the Mindfulness of Breathing. Our meditation teachers’ approach is informal and friendly. There is plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
