Meditation practice begins at 11:57
Dear Open Heart Project,
I hope you are well and finding joy and richness in your world.
About a month ago, we began a series of conversations on working with difficult emotions and how meditation can help. We started with anger, moved on to attachment (or grasping), and then shame. Last week, we took a look at jealousy (or feeling inadequate).
Continuing the heartache playlist, today I offer some thoughts on working with anxiety.
These are anxious times, that may be an understatement. But if we take a look at the energy of anxiety apart from its story line, we may come into possession of pure alertness. Hyper awake and hyper vigilant are different things. In this short talk, I offer some suggestions for teasing the two apart.
Thoughts? It’s always so great to hear from you.
With love, Susan
