One of the less discussed aspects of mindfulness training is mindfulness of feelings. Our difficulty in staying present and curious to unpleasant feelings is one of the fundamental reasons we get stuck, depressed and anxious. The nature of feelings is to change, but they only do so when we feel them and allow for the inherent transformation that follows. Mindfulness of feelings is a particular technique where we learn to work with the edge of unpleasant emotions by noticing the felt sense, breathing with, and staying present to feelings without expectation or judgement. I have experienced significant shifts in my own and my clients’ emotional states through this practice.
