“To miss the link between metta and Insight is to miss the point of metta completely.” 

In Living with Kindness, Sangharakshita says that metta has the taste of freedom. All too often however, the metta-bhavana practice is seen as a preliminary practice to lay the groundwork of positive emotion for the ‘real’ work of insight practice to start. In this course we will approach metta from an insight perspective right from the start to explore just how powerful and liberating this practice really is.
