The Dharma Was Made For These Times - The Four Protective Meditations (online)

This retreat brings together practices that brighten and open the mind to our highest aspirations, whilst grounding us in our immediate experience of embodiment and change.

The four meditations are:
• Recollection of the Buddha
• Metta meditation
• Contemplation of the body
• Reflection on death

By nourishing and strengthening the heart and mind, and encouraging us to explore the true nature of embodied life, these meditations protect us from getting lost in hopes and fears, and guide us toward awakening.
