BY APPLYING LOVING-KINDNESS, WE HOLD OUR EXPERIENCE IN A WARMHEARTED MANNER: February 7, 2018

“There are three mindfulness-based skills
we can use to handle difficult emotions:
(1) focused awareness,
(2) open-field awareness, and
(3) loving-kindness.
So far, you’ve learned the first two.
Focusing on a single object
calms and stabilizes the mind,
and open-field awareness
helps us respond to daily challenges
in an even, balanced way.
Those two skills can help us see
what’s going on in our lives;
then, by applying loving-kindness,
we ‘hold’ our experience
in a warmhearted, comfortable way.”

 Christopher Germer, The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion
