introduction to metta

This introduction to Metta gives insight into letting go of our negative state of mind, by cultivating kindness within.

“It is the truth that liberates, not your efforts to be free” – J. Krishnamurti

Sharon helps us to appreciate the sense of clarity that naturally arises when our view is no longer distorted by our fears, biases, and judgments of the world around us. This truth is born of and sustained through the versatile wisdom that comes from the cultivation and subsequent embodiment of a genuine balance of the mind and heart.
Meditation serves as a method of manifestation for the conditions necessary to promote and support this awakened state. Our capacity to open is innate and requires only that we uncover and nurture these qualities through our commitment to practice.
