Working with Painful Emotions: HatredAugust 29, 2022 | 13 Comments
Audio-only version is here.
Meditation practice begins at 14:10
Dear Open Heart Project,
I’m so glad to see you and delighted to practice meditation with you. Before we sit, I want to continue our exploration of working with painful emotions and how our meditation practice can help.
In this series, we started with anger, moved on to attachment (or grasping), then shame, followed by jealousy, anxiety, and, last week, distrust. This week, we move on to perhaps the most dangerous of all painful emotions: hate.
Is it possible to meet what we find hateful (for very good reason, I assume) without adding to the hate? Please have a listen to this short talk and let me know what you think. It’s always so great to hear from you.
On another note—I’m excited to let you know that my new book, The Buddhist Enneagram, is now available for pre-order. It presents a view of the enneagram, a system that describes nine types of people, through the lens of the Buddhadharma. If you want to learn more, preorder the book and then click here to let us know and to reserve your spot in a free, live, webinar on Oct 1 from 12p ET-2p ET.
With love, Susan
