Today’s meditation is a practice in mindfulness of emotions. We will begin with a few minutes of breath meditation before moving into a more open awareness. Observing the mind and body, we will watch emotions arise and pass. This is a practice to help us see our emotions with more clarity and insight.

In this guided meditation, we are not seeking to make specific emotions arise or keep other ones from coming up. Instead, we are simply noticing with mindfulness what comes into our awareness. The task is not to judge each experience, but to get to know it.

During the practice, you may get wrapped up in painful or difficult emotions. Remember that it can be helpful to switch to a few phrases of compassion in these moments, reconnecting with your intention to respond with kindness and care.
