A Loving Kindness Meditation for Runners


A loving kindness meditation helps to generate an attitude of loving acceptance towards ourselves and all persons. It is a way of healing habitual negative thought patterns which create pain and confusion in our minds. It has the immediate benefit of arousing positive feelings in our hearts.

Loving Kindness Meditation

All types of meditation are beneficial, but loving kindness practices in particular have been shown to produce increased positive emotions that lead to many other benefits. The results of this study showed that a loving kindness meditation practice resulted in increased mindfulness, an increased sense of life purpose, an increase in social support and a decrease in illness. 

"The more we genuinely care about others,
the greater our own happiness & inner peace
."

-- Allan Lokos


A Simple Loving Kindness Meditation

The following is a simple meditation that you can practice while running or anytime you would like to feel more loving:

Repeat these phrases for yourself:

  • May I be happy.
  • May I be peaceful and live with ease.
  • May I be free from injury and suffering.

Then think of a loved one and offer this blessing:

  • May you be happy. 
  • May you be peaceful and live with ease.
  • May you be free from injury and suffering.

Now offer a blessing to all beings:

  • May all beings everywhere experience true happiness and everlasting peace and love.

We can continue to practice loving kindness throughout our daily lives and in all our relationships by extending a friendly and open attitude towards everyone without discrimination.
