Daily Meditation 11 – 15 December 2023

Ayala Gill

These sessions are led by Ayala Gill.

Start Time: Monday – Friday, 7am GMT (London) / 8am CET (Paris). 60-minute live session.

Embracing challenging emotions

There are no negative emotions, only ones that we find challenging to embrace, like anxiety, anger, grief and fear. When we relate to them in distorted ways, their expression is indeed negative. Over this week (at a time of year where they may be particularly triggered!) we will explore how to come into a sacred relationship with each of these challenging emotions.
