Metta and Emptiness retreat

Emptiness reveals a space between how things arise and how things appear to us. Within this space there's more freedom to skilfully direct our lives towards our true heart's wish; metta - to live with love and connection. 
Emptiness is an understanding which sees that no-thing is an island unto itself, nor exists in a one-dimensional way. Realising emptiness helps free us from fixed identities; both regarding oneself but even more profoundly of all phenomena. 
 
Metta is both a pathway into emptiness and a natural expression coming from emptiness; metta and emptiness don't just support each other, they are inseparable. Metta rests on the realisation that no thing exists separate and permanent; everything, including our heart, mind and perception, is influenced by countless changing causes and conditions. And the more we develop an attitude of loving welcoming, the less the empty illusion of separation exists.
 
On this retreat we will explore how the practice of metta supports an understanding of emptiness on an experiential level. The days will include meditation guidance, talks and interviews with the teachers.
 
The retreat will take place in English and Hebrew - translation will be available.

Zohar fell in love with meditation in 2000 and has been following after her heart ever since. This journey has taken her from the meditation cushion into exploring further ways of expressing truth and love. She now spends most of her time dreaming up and facilitating retreats that offer service as a spiritual path around the world. Her practice involves relaxing into life with love. Zohar is one of the founders of SanghaSeva who offer a "meditation in action" retreats.
Nathan Glyde
נייתן החל לתרגל דהרמה ב1997 וללמד דהרמה ב2007. מתוך התרגול צמחה בו אהבה לחיות היציבה ולשקט היצירתי של המדיטציה, ועניין לטפח קשב עמוק בכל מצב. ב2004 הוא ייסד יחד עם רוב בורבאה וזהר לביא את סנגהסווה על מנת להציע קורסי מדיטציה המשלבים תרגול מדיטציה. עם פעילות חברתית וסביבתית. 
Nathan began meditating in 1997, and teaching retreats in 2007. From continued exploration grew a deep love for meditation's alive stillness and creative silence. Feeling the potential for all of life to play a part in awakening opened an interest to cultivate attentiveness in every experience. In 2004 this led to the co-founding of SanghaSeva.org to offer retreats combining meditation with social and environmental action.
