Metta (maitri in Sanskrit) translates as loving-kindness. It connotes unconditional acceptance and friendship with oneself and an active interest in others. Full disclosure, I wasn’t sure what I thought of this Metta business when I was first introduced to it, and it took me a moment to “get it.” So if you wrestle with a little cynical pushback around this initially, know that I was skeptical too. But none of us really want to be too stoic or defensive to embrace loving-kindness, do we? Just let it wash over you and take what speaks to you right now, leave what doesn’t. This 20 minute meditation is appropriate for all levels.
