Working with Thoughts and Emotions

by Vidyamala (2019)

This is talk 4 of 13 talks and led meditations given on the Path to Insight Retreat at Taraloka, July 2019. This retreat was offered to women who are training for Ordination and Order Members. The talks are available to all.

Vidyamala leads a session introducing practical ways to work with the thinking/emotion continuum. She suggests the first method to practice, is to acknowledge and let go. If thoughts/emotions are very charged, and keep recurring, she then recommends the second method - breathe with the experience with a kindly care, turning towards it in awareness and gradually allowing it to settle. Vidyamala then leads an exercise practising these two approaches.
