Event Overview

Lovingkindness Meditation cultivates feelings of love and compassion for ourselves, the people we are close to, strangers, the people we have strong difficulties with, and the world as a whole.  It's a core part of meditation practice and it's one people don't often realize they need until they see the benefits of working with it.


In this class, we do a deep dive into this meditation, talk about its history, and train the different ways you can use this practice to:


​.... Help you love yourself and others


.... Learn to consciously choose love and compassion


.... Let go of or make friends with your difficult past experiences


.... Work through feelings of grief and sadness due to loss


.... Create your own personalized affirmations that address your own need for growth or healing


Matthieu Ricard, the Tibetan Buddhist monk dubbed "the world's happiest man," has made the news a lot these past few years because of this meditation. When researchers hooked up the EEG sensors during his lovingkindness practice, they noticed activity that was off the charts in the areas of his brain associated with compassion and happiness.

    First time meditating and I really liked it! He did a great job of talking us through the meanings behind meditation and the benefits it has. I'd definitely recommend taking this.
