ABOUT THE METTA GARDEN:
Mettā is the Pali word (maitrī in Sanskrit) for loving-kindness, benevolence, friendship or friendliness, and good will, etc. It can also be thought of as unconditional love or love without attachment. Mettā practice, is the cultivation of loving-kindness. It is a popular form of meditation within, but not limited to Buddhism.
A garden is a planned space set aside for cultivation and enjoyment, usually of plants, flowers, vegetables, etc.
It is my aspiration for this website, that it may be a place – a garden for the cultivation of loving-kindness (Mettā) through both the art and the writing shared. May we all benefit on this journey as we awaken to our true nature, which is Love.
contemplative artist & writer
well…like you, i am journeying along in this life, learning about love, friendship, compassion and grace. i love the poetry of Rumi and Hafiz. when i need a reminder that all of this is sacred, i sit under the night sky and watch stars dance, i listen to birds sing or children’s laughter, i enjoy a cool breeze on a sunny day, and get lost in the eyes of those whom i love.
we are all friends here, interdependent, floating along in the same river which opens into a deep blue sea of vast, spacious Love…
