PRACTICE: Meditation for Gratitude and Lovingkindness
Posted by Program Director, Mayuri Gonzalez, E-RYT, RCYT
From my perspective, the aim of the yoga and mindfulness practice is to awaken a joyful freedom, a benevolent and compassionate heart in spite of everything.
Gratitude is a gracious acknowledgment of all that sustains us. It is an appreciation of the moments of good fortune that sustain our life every day. It helps to recalibrate us to a space where we are choosing to focus on “whats right” with our life, just as it is, rather than what isn’t so ideal. No matter how challenging this moment may be, there is often more that is “right” with our life than is “wrong.”
We have so much to be grateful for.
I have seen that as gratitude grows it gives rise to a wellspring of joy within my heart. I can be joyful for people I love, for moments of goodness, for sunlight and trees, and even the pure miracle of this precious breath I am breathing.
Please enjoy this 20 minute practice session designed to help you to cultivate gratitude, lovingkindness, and an appreciation for the goodness that permeates this moment.
