Mindstead - Loving kindness meditation

Loving kindness meditation


About This Tool

Even if you never tried meditation before, let yourself guided in a journey of relaxation and loving kindness. We will start with a body scan, noticing the breathing and welcoming relaxation and calm. 

Allowing your mind to settle, you will experience a deep sense of connection with yourself and with everybody else. 

This meditation can be done each time you feel the need to relax and to connect, to regulate your emotions or just as part of your daily routine.
