Working with Emotions

Meditation helps us understand the nature of our emotions and work with them more effectively.

Here’s what you’ll gain from this course:

  • A genuine insight and perspective into your emotions
  • Experiential meditation skills to work directly with your emotions
  • A new-found ability to transform negative emotions into something workable and healthy

Emotions make us human–they connect and alienate, elate and destroy.

When it comes to emotions, meditation is a wonderfully effective technique that works on a good many levels. When we train in mindfulness, we learn to let go of the storyline and simply be with what we’re experiencing in the moment. With awareness practice, we gain insights into the very nature of emotions and their manifold expressions.

Does meditation help us control our emotions?

Some emotions we treasure, others not so much. Most of us would like to have more control over negative emotions, but working with emotions—especially strong emotions—isn’t as easy as we’d like it to be. That’s because we’ve been reinforcing emotional habits since early childhood, and our reactions don’t always seem to make sense. To transform unwelcome emotions, it’s helpful to begin at the beginning. And in the context of meditation and emotions, the beginning is not the moment where we do a magical meditation for emotional control—it’s when we gain an understanding of how the mind works and how emotions function. That’s one reason why we meditate: we’re working with thoughts and emotions directly so that they don’t always lead us by the nose.

If you think that you’re using meditation for controlling emotions, think again. Control isn’t how meditation helps—meditation helps by increasing your awareness and showing you that you have choices regarding how you react to and work with your emotions. A course in working with emotions can be very effective; in today’s world, meditation online courses are very popular. Studies have shown a correlation between, say, mindfulness meditation and emotional intelligence. Trained meditators find it easier to release negative emotions before acting on them because meditation helps them be more aware and bring their focus back to the present moment. To develop mindfulness of emotions, meditation is key. Indeed, many therapists recommend meditation for working with emotions and now incorporate guided meditation for emotional healing in their treatment programs. Our Working with Emotions advanced meditation course will get you started on your mindful path to emotional healing and balance.
