This Metta or Loving Kindness Meditation is a guided meditation that runs 30 minutes, which is the suggested minimum time for you to sit. It is based on some of the Metta instructions of Bhante Vimalaramsi. Metta is part of the Brahma Viharas found and described in the earliest Buddhists texts as another path to awakening including breath. This meditation will lead you directly to the deep awakening of the heart and mind. You spend the first 10-15 minutes by radiating Loving Kindness to yourself and then to a Spiritual Friend and finally to the 6 directions as required in the full BrahmaVihara Practice. https://www.dhammasukha.org/the-6rs.html
It is guided by David Johnson, senior student of Bhante Vimalaramsi
