Confused, wild emotions can dominate us in obvious and subtle ways. Without suppressing feelings or acting them out, Buddhist meditation works with emotions directly. The energy of emotions becomes the basis for developing wisdom and compassion. The ground is experiencing the pain and confusion of emotions, and looking for a way to work with them. The path or process of working with emotions is explored. The fruition leads to further clarity in communication with others.
In this course we will explore the pain and confusion of emotions and look at ways to work with them. This is through the practice of meditation and mindfulness, developing maitri (loving kindness), prajna (wisdom) and communication with a Mahayana outlook. In particular the quality of emotions, the attitude toward emotions, agelessness and the relationship of intelligence and confusion.
