Tipawadee Emavardhana & Ladda Kitivipart / Using Satir,< Buddhist Metta in Tsunami & Terrorism Situations

To assist Tsunami victims and those living under terrorist conditions in Thailandís South, we combined Buddhist loving kindness (Metta), spiritual practice and Satir approaches in 3-day workshops. Many stopped feeling suspicious of others. Peace, growth and life energy emerged from within-between-among the participants. They felt more able to do good. We will describe the workshops and the outcomes of accessing and grounding participantsí deeper selves and ability to use Metta in ongoing Muslim, Christian or Buddhist spiritual practice.
