Aversion

This Sunday, Margaret led our Sangha on the topic of Aversion and its roots. She played a talk by Shaila Catherine that included a guided meditation. That talk is available here:

She also referred to another talk on emotions by Shaila Catherine:

While she didn’t play that talk during the Samgha, she read the following quote:

“Instead of being mindful of emotion, we retell the story; we dwell in the concept that keeps triggering the emotional state.”

So we remove ourselves from what fear and anger really feel like in the body.

“We disconnect from the authenticity of what is happening now.”
