Our 14 Day Lovingkindness Meditation Challenge is an introductory 14 day meditation event. It is an opportunity to experience the benefits that come from setting up a rock-solid daily meditation habit. We’ll be exploring how to bring greater kindness and compassion into our lives.

Cultivating lovingkindness involves learning to develop kindness, patience, and empathy as we go through life. These attitudes are directed not just to others, but to ourselves. Lovingkindness brings many health and interpersonal benefits—and it is a skill we can learn.
