Loving-kindness Course

Mettabhavana, Loving-kindness


Mettabhavana is an ancient Buddhist meditation leading to the development of unconditional loving-kindness and friendliness. Metta is something you feel in your heart, a positive emotional state towards others as well as ourselves. As a result of practicing metta we become more empathetic, more considerate, more kind, more forgiving, and in general, more loving, friendly people.

Metta practice help us:

  • Bring harmony into our lives and in our relationships
  • Rid ourselves of internal and external conflicts
  • Overcome lacerating guilt
  • Be open to loving acceptance of ourselves and others
  • Deepen our connections with all beings
