Loving Kindness Meditation

by Greater Good Science Center

Practicing kindness is one of the most direct routes to happiness: Research suggests that kind people tend to be more satisfied with their relationships and with their lives in general. We all have a natural capacity for kindness, but sometimes we don’t take steps to nurture and express this capacity as much as we could.

If you’d welcome some structure for giving and receiving love, our friends at Greater Good In Action provide a range of resources, grounded in the science of what makes us well. Give yourself the gift of 15 minutes of focused practice and build your capacity to send and receive loving kindness.
