12/02/2012 – Investigating Emotions

Doubt PDFJoey led our reflections on investigating emotions in a meditative context, as a factor of awakening.  During our time together, she drew on many sources, including playing a recording of the middle portion of a talk on Investigation by Joseph Goldstein

and reading/sharing a guided meditation from Tara Brach, Radical Acceptance: Embracing your life with the heart of a Buddha.  pp. 87-88

as well as reflections on investigating emotions by Pema Chodron and Achaan Cha (via Jack Kornfield):

Pema Chodron, Taking the Leap: Freeing ourselves from old habits and fears.  pp. 31 – 36; 40 – 43

The Buddha is still teaching: Contemporary Buddhist wisdom, edited & selected by Jack Kornfield, pp. 76, 81, 109
