Befriending Panic

In this video, Mingyur Rinpoche explains that emotions are not as solid as they may first appear, but, instead, consist of different components such as physical sensations. Moreover, when we become aware of these components, he explains that a natural space emerges within our experience. Reflecting on an instruction he received from his father as a boy, Mingyur Rinpoche guides us through a simple body-scan practice aimed at supporting us when difficult emotions arise.

Reflection Question

  • As you bring awareness to your emotional experience, does it shift or change in any way? Are there new elements that you are now aware of that you might not have been before? If so, please explain.
