Brain research on Metta Meditation has proven that Metta Meditation, when done correctly and with the proper instruction, activates the area of the brain which is the regulating center for cognitive control and emotional processing. This area is called the fronto-parietal cortex. Specifically, gamma brainwaves in this area increase. While there is still a lot to learn about the role of gamma brainwaves, they are thought to induce neuroplasticity. In other words, they are involved with helping the brain rewire or reprogram its old patterns into new ones.
Quite literally, then, Metta Meditation works by teaching your brain to think and feel differently, in a way that supports optimal wellbeing. Metta Meditation helps your brain learn how to help you feel happier, more peaceful, and more compassionate...first toward yourself...then toward the people and events around you. Doesn't that sound nice?
