This is a 23 minute, guided “metta” (lovingkindness) meditation. In lovingkindness practice we cultivate a sense of friendliness, compassion and acceptance by mindfully wishing ourselves and others well. The script for this meditation comes from the Refuge Recovery program.
What is Refuge Recovery?
Refuge Recovery is a buddhist path to recovery from all types of addiction. It’s based on meditation, buddhist philosophy and coming together as a community. You can read about my exprience with the program in my sobriety anniversary post: Celebrating one year of sobriety with Refuge Recovery.
