Sharon Salzberg takes us to Grand Central Station in the heart of NYC for the first STREET LOVINGKINDNESS VIDEO SERIES. Explore a new way to interact with the world around you by expanding your circle of kindness. Sharon takes the formal meditation practice of Lovingkindness (also known as Metta) off the cushion and into the real world to discover deeper connections and joy right where you are.
This video is a delightful example of compassion in action from Sharon Salzberg - practising extending wishes of metta, or lovingkindness, to strangers in the street. Loving kindness practice can feel strange at first, particularly when done in a meditation, but this shows how simple it can be to extend goodwill to others - be it our friends, family, or a total stranger.
Try it and let us know how it feels!
