THEME: Emotional Dysregualtion
GUIDED MEDITATION: US Election Trigger Practice
INTERACTIVE: Coherent Breathing
Well, it’s one day before the US election and the moment the Western world is thrown into our next Dark Age. Are you worried? I am. It’s hard to be an informed person and not feel some concern for the intense divisiveness and acrimony radiating up from our southern neighbours. Fortunately, when it comes to meditation, that’s just fine: we WANT reactions. We need something to work with here. This Monday evening, we get extremely practical, and explore mindfulness’ bare-bones approach to emotional reactivity. And then for part two we’ll explore some of the fascinating new science of breathing – how the simple technique of “coherent” rhythmic breathing can be a powerful way to regulate the whole metabolism.
