This course covers
What is Metta Meditation?
In this course we look at the four boundless states: lovingkindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity. We work with each of the practices in turn, exploring why we should cultivate these feelings and the benefits of this style of meditation.
While the Metta course can feel more spiritual than other courses available, it’s extremely transferable to everyday life. By allowing ourselves to direct kindness and love towards both ourselves and others, we can strengthen relationships and increase self belief.
The end goal is that we learn to treat ourselves and others as unique individuals who are all worthy of love, compassion and joy.
Benefits of Metta Meditation:
Satisfaction in Relationships
Metta Meditation can help you rebuild relationships and repair those that may have suffered over the years. You’ll learn to show unconditional kindness, compassion and empathy towards yourself and those around you, leading to a greater sense of peace.
By spending a few minutes each day focusing on each of the different Boundless States, you’ll start to bring a joyful energy into your day. While the course isn’t focused on ‘looking on the bright side’, it can help you disengage from negative thoughts and self talk, seeing joy in the small, everyday moments.
Increase Self Confidence
Whether we’re berating ourselves for sleeping in or we think we should have been more productive, we can all find ourselves being unnecessarily self critical. Metta meditation encourages you to see yourself as a human worthy of joy, love and compassion, which can help ease social anxiety and increase self confidence.
Through cultivating a sense of peace, joy and compassion towards yourself and others, you’ll experience improved sleep, leading to increased productivity and a range of physical health benefits.
