Mindplay to Expand Love in Your Life
Friendship is as important to our health as getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising. In this talk Jillian Pransky tells us that this is old news. 2,500-years ago Metta meditation was presented as a path to befriend our selves and develop a greater capacity to connect deeply with others – in the playground of our mind. Combining Metta with yoga practices will melt tension, release stagnant energy, and train the mind to be more spacious and present. In this open relaxed state, we can cultivate a transformative quality of friendliness towards ourselves. This isn’t only good for us; it’s good for everyone we come into contact with.
