This is a guided meditation session where participants will be guided through a 15-minute meditation with the theme of gratitude and loving kindness. Remembering to be grateful helps us have lives we are more satisfied with. Loving kindness or “metta” meditation is a form of meditation that involves giving love towards ourselves and others. During our busy lives we rarely pause and just sit with ourselves to be mindful and grateful for a few minutes. Meditation has many physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits. Loving kindness meditation in particular increases self compassion, focus and a sense of emotional strength. We all can benefit from showing ourselves and others some love, compassion, gratitude and kindness, which is what this session is dedicated to.
