Loving Kindness Meditation
Loving kindness meditation is an ancient Indian practice (metta in Pali) dating back over 2500 years ago and is used to cultivate kindness towards others. At Dalai Lama Fellows we believe developing an open heart is essential for leadership. When we have a strong and clear heart, we have the courage to stand up for those we love. By extending loving kindness to ever broader circles, we begin to realize our common humanity and develop the ability to come together to solve challenges. Try this meditation from Advisory Council member, Mirabai Bush, on a consistent basis and let us know how it's working for you.

Here's a quick reference guide if you'd like to practice a loving kindness meditation in the office, at home or wherever you find yourself. We recommend printing this double-sided so you can hang it up and refer to it as often as you'd like.
Tell us if you're finding these practices helpful and how they are helping you. If you have frameworks or practices you find useful and would like to share them, let us know and we'll add it to this list.
