Enjoy this guided meditation below as a way to connect to the region of the brain responsible for empathy, compassion and joy.

Why? Because where we turn our attention matters and can, in fact, rewire the brain.

The regions in our brain are connected by roads called neural pathways. We have the ability to improve those roads, transforming them into super highways if you will, that are easy to access and can even become more automatic in every day life.

Metta—or loving kindness—meditation, strengthens and deepens the neural networks leading to the region of the brain responsible for pro-social behaviors like empathy, compassion, kindness.

So why not give it a try today? Practice compassion, lean into kindness, and see how they impact your relationship with yourself and the greater world. Enjoy!

Mindfully yours,
