Loving kindness meditation
Loving-Kindness meditation or Metta Bhavana Meditation comes from the Buddhist tradition. It's my personal favorite meditation to practice and share. It is a very powerful and healing practice to help cultivate love (not the romantic kind) towards ourselves and others. When practiced regularly, you'll notice amazing benefits. Please leave me a comment and share your experience! This is from Buddhanet.net:
"Loving-kindness is a meditation practice, which brings about positive attitudinal changes as it systematically develops the quality of 'loving-acceptance'. It acts, as it were, as a form of self-psychotherapy, a way of healing the troubled mind to free it from its pain and confusion. Of all Buddhist meditations, loving-kindness has the immediate benefit of sweetening and changing old habituated negative patterns of mind."
