Brendan, who lives in a small town in Sardinia, far from the nearest meditation center, talks about the benefits he’s experienced because of Bodhipaksa’s work here on the Wildmind web site, where we offer thousands of pages of meditation instruction as well as many guided meditation videos and audio recordings, and on Wildmind’s Google+ Community.

The 100 Days of Lovingkindness posts are still there, available as a resource. In fact I know some people are …
