Here’s an introduction to an easy-to-use meditation tool called loving-kindness meditation.
Loving-kindness meditation, also referred to as metta meditation, is a simple way to cultivate goodwill towards yourself and others.
Metta meditation promotes compassion, which can aid in opening your mind and heart, repairing your relationships and promoting your well-being. It can complement your self-care practices.
The image in this article includes examples of phrases that you might direct towards yourself and others during metta meditation:
May I/you/we have peace.
May I/you/we have love.
May I/you/we have joy.
