Mindfulness can help us cope with intense social, political, and global issues to prevent overwhelm and burn out. It can also help feel our interconnectedness and cultivate compassion so that we’re ready and able to be a force of good.
Through mindfulness practice, we can learn to be with our emotions, to allow them space, and to also allow them to move through our awareness without becoming attached to them. In this video, I share how to mindfully work with repressed emotions and/or attachment to emotions. I also explain the concept of emotional back draft and how, once we learn to allow emotions to pass through our experience, we make more room for the good to grow.
