Loving Kindness Meditation for Challenging Times

Loving Kindness Meditation for Challenging Times 0

This version of the ancient loving-kindness meditation known as Metta has four simple short phrases that seem perfect for getting through our current challenges.

Loving-kindness meditation appears in different variations, but the intention and basic simplicity are consistent across different forms. It has the potential of relieving your stress, calming your anxiety, and lifting you up in everyday situations and in challenging times.
