About This Meditation
The Buddha says that hatred cannot coexist with love and kindness. It is appeased by thoughts of love and compassion.
Loving-kindness meditation is a form of meditation which generates generous and selfless love towards ourselves and others.
This form of meditation is one which is best practised repeatedly over a number of weeks to get the greatest benefit. Benefits include not only less self-criticism and fewer self-destructive thoughts, but also more positive emotions, more resilience, and even reportedly reduced pain in many.
Give this meditation a go just now, and perhaps make it part of your daily routine for the next month and see what benefits you create for yourself.
If you are one of my Patreon supporters, watch for an exclusive extended version of this meditation coming out later this month! (If you are not already a supporter, check below for details of how you can become one so you can get the extended meditation too).

Mindfulness and Business
These days there is an increasing awareness of the benefits of meditation and other mindfulness practises for all, including for those in business. No longer is meditation seen “for the hippies”, many seasoned business professionals recognise its benefits and actively practise mindfulness.
To help like-minded people connect, I run a fortnightly online networking meeting called “Morning Mindfulness”. It runs every second Tuesday, 8am – 9:30am, as part of 4Networking. The meetings are fun, friendly, and open to everyone.
You can find out more details by popping along to 4N on Network Central and searching for Morning Mindfulness.
See you there!
