Pema Chödrön, Buddhist nun, author and a pioneer of the mindfulness movement, explains how to deal with suffering by acknowledging the feelings, welcoming, embracing and accepting the emotions, breathing them in to our heart so our hearts expand.
Being open, fully allowing and accepting the feelings. . . moving towards them without blame. . . we breathe out into the inter-connectedness; as we do this we breathe with everyone, as we all have these feelings.
