Without making any assumptions about our students’ political preferences, it’s probably fair to say that election week has been an intense time for everyone. We are here for you. Please come to class and do these time-honored practices of yoga and meditation that dispel tension and build community.

Metta means “lovingkindness,” or friendliness and goodwill. I made this little piece of social media art earlier this week, using one of my favorite quotes from the Buddha’s discourse on lovingkindness (the Karaniya Metta Sutta). Please feel free to share this universal wisdom, and radiate your goodwill everywhere!

We also have a free guided Metta Meditation recording on our website here, if you’d like to practice it. Enjoy!
