Working with Difficult Emotions
Feelings have the power to motivate one toward wise action when facing a challenge. They can also cause intense suffering, drive and distort behavior, and lead to regret. Being able to work with emotions, both intense and subtle, is a skill that can be developed through mindfulness meditation. We explore the Unified Mindfulness technique of focusing on “flow” in emotions in the body. Being able to detect the changing nature of emotions moment by moment can be a liberating experience and free one up to act with wisdom and compassion.
