Mindfulness of Emotions Meditation

Join us for a mindfulness of emotions meditation.

In this meditation, you start with a silent meditation of your choice--perhaps a breath meditation or mindfulness of sound meditation. Then, every 30 seconds or so (no need to time it, just guess), you check-in internally to note what emotion you are feeling. You silently note it by labeling the emotion. It might sound like:

sad..irritated..content..happy

After the meditation, we'll have a discussion.

Also, as I mentioned at our last meeting, an article I've written on the neuroscience of loving-kindness meditation has been published in Wise Brain Bulletin. Here is a link to the pdf

There has been some controversy about it in that I refer to animal research in the article. I've therefore written another article which has been published at the Secular Buddhist Association web site to discuss the ethics of research on animals. I invite your comments, pro or con:
