Loving Kindness Metta Meditation

Loving Kindness Metta Meditation

The world needs more love, compassion and understanding.

Metta is a Pali word meaning Loving Kindness.  This is a simple yet profound practice which directs our intentions to wishing ourselves and others happiness and peace. Loving Kindness Meditation helps us understand that all beings deserve compassion.  I always use this meditation during February to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Loving Kindness Metta Meditation (length 5:35)

 

We love teaching the magic of mindfulness to kids and teens. It’s easy and amazingly effective. Learn how.

Metta Mindfulness for Thanksgiving

Metta Mindfulness for Thanksgiving

This holiday season cultivate a sense of gratitude and loving kindness with this quick metta mindfulness practice.

  1. Close your eyes, take a couple slow deep breaths
  2. Imagine someone who is loving and kind – a friend, relative, pet, teacher, spiritual leader, mentor
  3. Take a moment to bring their image to mind and feel as if you are looking into their eyes
  4. Imagine that person saying to you “May you be happy. May you be healthy, May you be safe. May you be at peace.” (You can use your own words or aspirations)
  5. Now say the same words back to that person with feeling and intention
  6. Now imagine your family or those who you will spend the holidays with, some of which you may not always get along. Wish them well using these same words.

Allow these words and the feeling behind them to resonate within you. Take your time. Invite gratitude and loving kindness to grow within your heart and mind.

Enjoy your holidays with a greater sense of thanksgiving and love for all.
