The practice of Loving – Kindness Meditation meditation ( Metta) is excellent support for other mindfulness practices. By uttering certain words and phrases, you cultivate in yourself “an unlimited heart feeling.” The strength of this feeling is not limited to family, religion, or social status.

If applications are expensive for you, and the phone and YouTube are too distracting, then you need one of the oldest technologies for transferring knowledge and experience – a book. The books are inexpensive and will fit a good meditation program.
