This session will be held over the phone as part of the monthly Unified Mindfulness Home Practice Program (5-9am Pacific / 8am-12pm Eastern).
Becoming intimately familiar with restful states in the body and mind leads to going beyond relaxation for its own sake. It teaches us how to relate to active states with greater equanimity. It sets the stage for experiencing impermanence directly. It helps erode the subtle resistance operating below our awareness. This exploration can also shift us from meditating to being meditated. This session provides a rich opportunity to go deeper into your exploration of restful states and to address the obstacles that you might encounter along the way.
The Unified Mindfulness framework provides several practical tools and insights for expressing emotions in liberating ways. Instead of trying to feel things we don’t feel, this session explores ways to become more familiar with our emotional activations in real time and to fight with them less. We will also discuss emotional expression and suppression.
In preparation for this program, please read or review the third chapter from Five Ways to Know Yourself: The Way of Tranquility.
