5. Guided Sympathetic Joy (Mudita) Meditation
Guided Sympathetic Joy (Mudita) Meditation
Is it possible that the amount of love, happiness and success available to worldly beings is not finite? How would it feel to rejoice in the happiness of our fellow humans? A guided meditation on sympathetic joy (mudita) with Buddhist teacher Joseph Goldstein. "Sympathetic joy is the ability to feel joy in the happiness of others. Its near enemy is a sense of comparison -- concluding that our experience makes us superior, inferior, or equal to someone else. This is the force of assessing ourselves in relation to someone else's experience. We separate ourselves and in our separateness measure, evaluate, and affirm ourselves in relation to someone else's life. Comparison itself, regardless of the conclusion we draw, is a source of pain and delusion in the mind. When we touch the spirit of sympathetic joy in our heart, it connects us with the happiness of all life. Sympathetic joy embraces all those enjoying happiness themselves and brings us together with them. Their well-being is our own." - Jack Kornfield
6. Yoga to Calm The Mind: Breathe
Yoga to Calm The Mind: Breathe
Warm up with a 10-minute sequence of meditative postures to elongate the abdomen, chest, and side body. Then alleviate anxiety with breathing practices to center the mind amid stress. Anxiety creates poor breathing habits by constantly stimulating the autonomic nervous system, ultimately changing the way we breathe. These poor breathing habits, which are caused by anxiety, actually contribute to the anxiety itself, creating a viscous cycle. Follow Grokker Yoga Expert Siri Peterson in this Grokker Premium video to rejuvenate the power of a healthy, natural breath. Let your breath bring you peace...
