Nathan Glyde
Radical shifts are possible for us: Understanding that mindfulness already has kindness in it we can bring this metta quality to all things. We can also support this atmosphere by relaxing body, heart and mind. We can do this by resting back into back of the body, and bringing forward a more open, sensitive, naturally-caring, non-demanding attention to what is appearing.

Guided mettā meditation where we are really feeling the feeling behind the phrases. Offering unconditional kindness: to someone from an easy relationship; to more neutral relationships; even towards slightly more difficult ones; or to ourselves; and then out to all of life and the whole world.
