Description

When mindfulness meditation was introduced as an aid for patients suffering from chronic pain, physicians were skeptical. Today, mindfulness meditation is used in hundreds of hospitals and clinics across the country.

On Break Through Difficult Emotions, meditation mentor Shinzen Young adapts the core principles of mindfulness training to the treatment of emotional suffering. You will learn powerful meditations for overcoming anger, grief, anxiety, shame, and the many other painful emotions we all experience.

Four step-by-step exercises cover how to:

  • Deconstruct any emotion into its harmless components
  • The location, shape, and flow of your emotions
  • Melt frozen emotions into their natural, fluid state
  • Untangle emotional confusion by watching your thoughts
  • Transform negative emotions into positive ones, and much more

The program "break Through Difficult Emotions" by Shinzen Young is definitely worth the money, I've had some results during the month that I've had it.

The program basically consists of 4 meditation exercises, the results are not immediate and the meditation exercises take consistent daily practice if you want to be able to handle difficult emotions in the future.

I've started noticing my old thought patterns that make me depressed and they lose momentum when I put my attention on them.

I have been practicing the meditation exercises for a month and I've already been meditating for two months prior to buying it, the progress for me has been subtle and slow but noticeable. I can notice when I become depressed and stop myself but this program isn't magic so don't expect any instant miracles.

I will continue practicing the meditations.
I happen to live in Israel and Shinzen Young is having a meditation retreat here soon, after the program introduced me to him I will go to learn more from him.
