Loving Kindness

A compassionate meditation helps you shed stress by calming your mind and your emotions.

START

We can use our mindful attention to hold compassion for our own suffering and the suffering of others. Although we think of compassion as a concept or a feeling that may naturally be present when we experience difficult situations, we may underestimate how valuable it can be. It is a force that can counter troubling emotions like fear and anger. In the Buddhist tradition the practice of “Loving Kindness” is a formal way of putting our compassionate intentions into words by first directing well wishes toward ourselves and then extending them to others and finally to all beings everywhere.
