Metta for Mérida (and México) this week & news from VenezuelaOn Mon, 25 September, 2017 - 20:54
This Wednesday is the last Wednesday of the month, so it will be the 3rd session of metta for merida. Here are details of the time etc.
Last month: I had just arrived back in Venezuela & I was in Caracas staying with our only mitra who lives there, Maria Elena. We did a short session of metta together before I travelled back here to Mérida. In Mérida itself there was a session of meditation too & people have sent reports of their meditations all round the world.
News about Venezuela: Since the time I made the video about Venezuela, the violent protests on the street have calmed down, but that is not because life has got easier. I have found that the sangha here it quite demoralised in some ways. The economic crisis has really deepened and the price of food is incredibly high. I’m hoping to set up a little right livelihood business so that people can earn a dignified wage. When that is clear I will post more & ask you to support this business.
This Wednesday: as well as leading a meditation for the sangha here in such a way to help them work with the inner conflicts that arise with such strong tensions in society, we will dedicate some time to sending metta to México, where many people will be suffering the after effects of the recent earthquakes.
