Very lovely Meditation Sequence

Thank you Sharon! I listen to this almost every day. :) it has 2 meditations. One for yourself that is about 16 minutes and one for sending loving kind ness to others that is about 20 minutes. They are very gentle and I always feel more calm and at ease after listening to them.

Pleased to find this.

Sharon Salzberg is an excellent meditation guide. She is clear, intelligent, and warm.
I always look for a 'voice' that feels right to me, and she has it.

shorter than expected

A great introduction to loving kindness.
I guess I was expecting something closer to Pema Chodron
