An audio meditation for times of emotional pain.

Grief, anger, sadness, and frustration are parts of life, and these emotions, though uncomfortable, are all there for a reason. Rather than helping us eradicate these emotions, meditation can help us identify them, sit with them, and allow them to soften. Sometimes that’s enough to allow these emotions to flow through us, and sometimes there is a message we need to listen to coming from these emotions. This meditation will help us tune into our internal feelings and soften the sharp edges of our heartache.
