A Guided Meditation for Giving + Receiving Compassion by Noriko Harth

February 07, 2019 1 min read

To celebrate the month of love, we partnered with Noriko Harth—Managing Director of the Center for Mindfulness at UC San Diego Health—to bring you a guided meditation for giving and receiving kindness and compassion.


Noriko Harth is a Certified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Instructor, Certified Mindful Self-Compassion Instructor and the Managing Director of the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness. Born in Japan, she moved to the States in 1985. Noriko feels that her life-transforming journey of discovering and exploring mindfulness practices has allowed for a more balanced life and identity between these two cultures.

Noriko strongly believes in practicing mindfulness and self-compassion, and bringing these principles into her life has and continues to help her grow as a person. She feels passionate about bringing these practices to other people's lives. It is her mission to share what she has learned—and what she continues to learn—to our community. In addition, Noriko sees an opportunity, based on her own integration experiences, to introduce mindfulness programs to the Japanese community.
