Free Online Guided Loving Kindness Meditations

“The water of compassion courses through the canal of loving kindness”. -Maitreya
Join us every Thursday morning at 9:15am for a free 45 minute guided loving kindness meditation with one of our experienced meditation instructors. Loving-kindness meditation can be practiced by anyone, people of all faiths or none. All are welcome to attend, no prior experience needed.
From the Buddhist point of view, love is the wish that living beings find happiness and its causes. One of the meditation practices that helps us cultivate this wish for others happiness is called ‘loving kindness’, or metta in the Pali language. It carries a sense of unconditional warm-heartedness and kindness, a kind of deep caring, tenderness, a good heart.
When our hearts and minds are filled with love we naturally experience happiness and well-being. Loving Kindness meditation is a method that helps us to develop a more and more unconditional love, starting with developing a healthy and loving relationship with ourselves and then extending that out into all our relationships and ultimately to all beings.
