6 Week Meditation Challenge: Live
Great, you're on the 6 week meditation challenge, let's go!
You can join the challenge any time.
Looking for instructions on the Mindfulness of Breathing or the Metta Bhavana meditations?
We’ve put together a reminder for you here.
Bring each person from the different stages together with yourself and see if you can cultivate equal metta toward all of you. Then expand this ‘field’ of metta outward to eventually include all beings. If you find it helpful you can use the phrases ‘May all beings be well and happy’, ‘May they be free from suffering’, ‘ May they find satisfaction and make progress in their lives’.
