Lovingkindness meditation grants you access to greater compassion for everyone around you, including (and perhaps most importantly) yourself. If you've ever said you "can't" meditate – or felt like meditation was nothing but struggle – you've come to the right place.
Hella Metta unfolds over the course of 10 days, with daily audio meditations and an e-book/workbook to guide you. This is an independent-study meditation e-course.
We all want to live in a world overflowing with love — not the sappy, or even romantic, kind — but full of love that is grounded in compassion and interconnectedness. This is a world where everyone loves themselves well.
LOVINGKINDNESS MAKES THAT WORLD MORE POSSIBLE.
Metta, or lovingkindness, meditation upends your life in the best way possible. It fills the world with more of that kind of love – and we all want that: more sweetness, a greater sense of community, and a sense of our own worthiness.
When I began practicing lovingkindness meditation nearly a decade ago, I had no idea what it would bring.
(Spoiler: it reorganized the way I saw my family, my work as a spiritual activist and myself. Seriously.)
Through lovingkindness, you receive a direct experience of your own deep worth, and gain the tools for gorgeous self-care. And that’s what metta is: self-care in meditation form.
ENTER HELLA METTA.
This short & sweet 10-day meditation e-course is all about lovingkindness — and bringing more compassion and care into your world. It’s called Hella Metta: not a stodgy, stoic practice — this is love in action, in the face of the seemingly-impossible.
It’s about loving yourself through your imperfections and heartbreaks. Lovingkindness meditation practice lets us stake a claim to a radical kind of love: unconnected to accomplishment, praise, criticism or circumstance.
Through lovingkindness practice, you’ll find a safe home in your own skin and profound respect for your precious self.
"I started Hella Metta when I was visiting a sick family member, and the course was helpful in helping me remember and actively practice loving feelings, making my visit a really positive and loving experience. I felt that the delight I took in this daily receiving was a self-care act in itself."
