Album Notes
Simple yet profound, tried and tested for centuries, these practices help people live happier lives
by embodying qualities of boundless love.

Cultivating these techniques, you will develop kindness to yourself and others, celebrate the
joys of those around you and free the heart through forgiveness.

By embracing everything with kindness and friendliness, these meditations teach you how to
live with a ‘Heart as Wide as the World.’

Loving Kindness – is a boundless quality of heart that allows us to love all life without need for
anything in return. It teaches us to wish genuinely for the well being of all. Begin by generating a
kind attitude to ourselves; we then learn how to extend this quality of friendliness and kindness
to friends, strangers and even people we have difficulty with. It liberates the heart from a self-
centered love that enriches our life with warmth and well-being.

Compassion – is the natural response of an open heart when it encounters pain, whether in
ourselves or others. It is the capacity to feel care and concern in response to the suffering of the
world. It is this powerful quality that allows us to turn toward difficulty with courage and empathy.

Appreciative Joy – is the beautiful quality of heart and mind that genuinely celebrates and
rejoices in the happiness and success of others. It is a direct antidote to feelings of envy,
comparison and jealousy. It is a rare and expansive state that increases our access to joy in our

Forgiveness Meditation – is a practice that invites us to turn towards the heart that has closed
due to the harm that we have done to ourselves or others and where in turn we have been hurt
by others. By using phrases that express our intention to forgive ourselves and others for the
pain that has been caused, we can gently begin the process of releasing wounds that may have
burdened us for years – freeing up a greater capacity for the heart to love.
