Description

Within your own heart is a limitless source of supreme energy—the energy of love. No other force in the universe compares to it. The world's great spiritual traditions, both past and present, agree on this simple principle. Can love be harnessed and applied to others used as a tool for changing lives?

Lovingkindness Meditation teaches a traditional practice for cultivating love, and applying it as a life-changing force. Dating back 2,600 years, metta (an ancient Buddhist meditation practice on lovingkindness) is a timeless method for unlocking your heart's immense healing resources.

Metta meditation is not a technique for repressing your awareness of life's pain. Rather, it is a way to break down the artificial mental barriers that separate you from others. Here is a universal meditation practice to help you:

  • Melt away feelings of isolation
  • Awaken your true compassion, even for those who have hurt you
  • Free yourself from needless suffering, while helping others find happiness
  • Learn to trust in your own loving, intelligent heart

This is a beautiful relfection on the practice of lovingkindness delivered with genuineness and warmth. It is inspiring for those mystified by the practice as it offeres an insightful personal account and carefully chosen, relevant texts. It is helpful, pragmatic and wise, encouraging contemplation.
