In this bonus episode for parents, caregivers, and educators, Chanel shares her favourite mindfulness meditation practice called Mettā Meditation, or Loving Kindness Meditation. This is a practice that comes from Buddhism and its intention is to cultivate an attitude of benevolence and goodwill towards ourself and others, by repeating short phrases, like: “may you be happy” and “may you be healthy.”
