2014-06-18 Practicing Skillfully with thought and emotions as a foundation for speech practice. 57:25
We explore the possibility of taking radical responsibility for our thoughts and emotions at the ability to respond skilfully, rather than react. We look at three ways of practicing with thoughts and emotions. 1. coming back to balance when out of balance. 2. cultivating mindfulness of thoughts and emotions. 3. working more actively with thoughts and emotions, including habitual patterns.
