Learn how to be fully in the moment with big emotions with this gentle meditation.
This is a simple mindfulness practice for sitting with your emotions. We will observe the sensations of the emotions in our bodies while softening the stories of what they mean. This can often be enough to help soothe a feeling. We may also need to pay attention to the feelings in some way, and this practice gives us a chance to do that.
Keep in mind that this practice may bring tears or other reactions to the surface, so ensure you have time to take care of yourself after the meditation. If you're working with traumatic or overwhelming feelings or memories, this meditation may not be appropriate for you and you may prefer to do this kind of work with a trained counselor.
