and better able to pay attention

The development of lovingkindness
(metta bhavana) works directly on our emotional habits, helping us to become more emotionally positive
. You'll learn to be kinder to yourself
: more patient, more understanding. You'll find that you're more considerate to others and that it's easier to forgive
. You may even find (as others have) that others around you mysteriously become easier to be around. Hmmm.. wonder why that is? Learn more »
is a great way to bring more meditation into your daily life; it's a practice that can be done even in a busy city street. In this form of practice we develop greater mindfulness of the body
, but we also become more aware of our thought patterns
, our emotions, and even of the outside world. It's a calming
practice. Walking meditation can also be a lovingkindness practice, especially when you're walking in a public place. Learn more »

and give us a reassuring sense of our place in the great scheme of things
, but it can be unsettling and challenging as well. Yes, I know. Reassuring and unsettling. That's Buddhist practice for you! Learn more »
