This world is a
dewdrop world
and yet, and yet



Due to the pandemic Metta Institute is on a hiatus at least through the end of 2020. We will gradually roll out a series of new education programs. They will ultimately include live workshops and retreats as well as opportunities for online study. We will continue to provide education on mindful and compassionate approaches to care inspired by the Buddhist tradition. However, we want to place an equal emphasis on how we can use the wisdom gained by maintaining an awareness of death to help us live happier, productive and more loving lives. Stayed tuned for more developments.

We have partnered with the Upaya Zen Center to offer a webinar series titled Bearing Witness Together in Troubled Times. The three 90 minute programs will be offered online by donation on April 27, May 4 and May 11.

We are no longer offering the End of Life Practitioner Program. First developed in 2002 we have offered it every year through 2016. Over those 14 years, we trained countless healthcare clinicians and caregivers in unique approaches to mindful and compassionate care. We also created a national network of educators, advocates and guides for those facing life-threatening illness.

Our plan is to develop an online course featuring our world-renowned faculty and a number of guest teachers. Our intention is to launch that program in late 2020. We want to open our archives of 14 years of groundbreaking and visionary teachings and utilize them in a way that serves a much wider audience. Stay tuned for updates.
