Dan Harris

Stress and panic are a constant part of our modern lives, and have serious consequences for our mental and physical health. Meditation can help us cope with this anxiety and live a more compassionate, fulfilling, and productive life. Metta meditation increases compassion. In your mind, visualize yourself clearly and repeat these phrases: May you be healthy, may you be happy, may you live with ease, may you be safe. Next, repeat the same mantra, this time picturing a dear friend, a benefactor, a neutral person, a person with whom you are having problems, and finally, all the living things.
