This meditation practice helps us feel more positive, accepting and kindly towards both ourselves and others. It aims at cultivating a sense of connectedness and shared humanity with others, and is adapted from a traditional Buddhist meditation practice, the Metta Bhavana.
The CD includes two different approaches to the practice of developing kindly awareness.

Vidyamala was born and raised in New Zealand and first became interested in meditation in 1985, when receiving hospital treatment for a spinal injury. She then moved to the UK in 1990 to live at a Retreat Centre in Shropshire, training further in meditation and preparing for ordination into the Western Buddhist Order. In 1996 she moved to Manchester and in 2001 she started teaching mindfulness-based approaches to others living with physical pain and illness. In 2004 she founded Breathworks with Sona. Her spinal condition deteriorated further in the late nineties and she now uses crutches or a wheelchair for mobility, but she says that her overall quality of life has continued to improve as she has become more and more adept at managing the responses to her physical condition and enriching her life in other ways.
The CD's are co-lead by Vidyamala's partner Sona. Sona started meditating in London in 1972 and was ordained into the Western Buddhist Order in 1974. He has led retreats in the UK, Germany, Holland, Sweden, North America, Australia and New Zealand. At present he runs courses in Buddhist studies, meditation and pain management.Review:
