Madre Grande Monastery
A Sacred site for healing, teaching, ceremony, and celebration
In the mindfulness classes you will learn to keep a meditative state even in the frantic materialistic world. Your worldly affairs provide the substance for your meditative practice. These are not classes for withdrawal, they are classes that prepare you for involvement. The bio-rhythms and body-mind system are used as a feedback mechanism toward achieving deeper awareness. Of course, this enlightened condition probably won't happen to you during the retreat, but it might.

As an Introduction to Meditation we offer our Loving-Kindness All-the-Time series of three classes. The aim is to develop a meditative consciousness that is ready to tackle the inner work of Mindfulness. These three classes focus on:
Loving Yourself - If you do not love yourself, how do you expect to love another? Surely our search to find another that will make us love ourselves will fail. The obstacles to self-love are many. This retreat will lead you to a self-loving state of confidence, courage and freedom from fear.
Loving Another - After learning the basic technique in Loving Yourself, you will be ready to take on Loving-Another. Learn to radiate this divine state upon another. Doors and hearts will open to you. Animals and children will love you and come up to you. Peaceful sleep and pleasant dreams will be yours.
Loving Everyone - Expand your loving-kindness practice into an all-the-time state and radiate your loving-kindness to all beings. Learn to be joyful at all peoples success and well being. Learn to have compassion for those less fortunate. Learn to love and to see all with great clarity.
