What is Metta?

Metta means loving kindness and goodwill. It is a strong, sincere wish for the goodwill of all human beings. Used most commonly in Buddhist tradition, it is a philosophy of how to lead one's life. The Metta Center founder, Leah Farnsworth Izzard learned the art of metta in her Thai massage training at the Thai Insitute of Healing Arts. She was inspired to create a wellness center that was guided by that compassionate state of mind that is metta.
