Jacqulyn Schuett leads a meditation on loving kindness, or "metta."

 

One form of meditation often practiced at the Florida Community of Mindfulness is the “guided meditation”. In these meditations, one is voice-guided step-by-step through a meditative experience.

Guided meditations may have different purposes. Some are general, aimed at quieting the mind and producing calmness and relaxation. Others have a very specific purpose, such as cultivating loving-kindness, reflecting on impermanence, watching the arising and passing away of emotions or thoughts, and more.

The following guided meditations were recorded by senior members of the FCM community. To best benefit from the guidance, we encourage you to take a noble posture in a quiet setting, and to let the words gently guide and open your mind.
