We are all in the ‘human being club” together and at times find life challenging and stressful. Relationships, family issues, a sense of isolation, work, politics, financial strains, loss, all take a toll on our physical and mental health. Through it all, we just want to be happy.
When practicing loving kindness, also known as mete, we cultivate a friendly attitude toward ourselves and others. What is it like to see the good in myself and others? What would it feel like if our heart could smile? Loving kindness is likened to a soft rain that penetrates the heart, relaxing the defense mechanisms associated with fear and negative mental states. When we engage in an active loving kindness practice, we find ourselves attending to daily life with greater calm and happiness.
Required Book: Loving Kindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness by Sharon Salzberg; supplemental handouts will be shared.
