Safely Held: Meeting Our Emotions with Mindfulness

Day of Practice: On-Demand

When held with care and wisdom, emotions can be some of our most important messengers

Emotions are the ever-shifting dynamics of our inner life. At times they are subtle; at other times charged with energy. Their pressure, or call to action, can often overwhelm and upset us.

Mindfulness can help us to respectfully embrace our feelings without adding to a sense of fear, frustration, or narratives of the mind. If we can learn not to reject or identify with them, observing our feelings and meeting our emotions with mindfulness can offer us liberating insights about our personal needs and boundaries.

In this Day of Practice with beloved teacher Ulla Koenig, we practice meditation, a drawing activity and Qigong/mindful movement to strengthen our capacity to meet our emotions with grace, both on and off the cushion.

Meeting Our Emotions with Mindfulness

Join this session to learn to:

  • Mindfully explore the physical sensations associated with emotions
  • Determine appropriate distance from & curiosity towards your emotions
  • Nourish your heart-mind and emotional balance

What is Day of Practice?

Sangha Live’s 3-hour Day of Practice allows for you to drop in deeper, develop your meditation skills, and reset your intentions through sustained sitting.

Now offered ON-DEMAND, you can join this session independently, on your own schedule, and at your ideal pace. Watch and re-watch the videos as you please.

Days of Practice include longer periods of meditation interspersed with wise teachings, a recorded Q&A from the live class, and more.

What’s Included

With the independent student in mind, previously recorded live sessions are broken down into meaningful modules. Each Day of Practice has been trimmed and consolidated into 4 to 6 videos, and every video – whether a lesson, meditation, exercise, or Q&A – includes a description, so you have total flexibility when planning your self-paced day of practice.


Day of Practice is offered on a sliding scale basis, with a suggested rate of $35. We wholeheartedly welcome all to practice with us; no one turned away for lack of funds.
