Your time is important and using practical psychologies you can learn more in 10 minutes experiential than you might in a day driven by theory. We create our world by how we think, act and speak – our mind is the experiment and like any good scientist we choose it's direction. The Dalai Lama (Gyatso, Tenzin), the world leader of Tibetan Buddhism, and Paul Ekman, the world famous Psychologist of human emotions, have teamed up to discuss how to use mindful emotional awareness skills to become more emotionally balanced and compassionate.
1) Attention and concentration mind training expand the gap in time and space between stimulus and impulsive emotional reactions, thus improving emotional and behavioral balance in responses to stressors. 2) Meditative focus on breath awareness helps to calm both the body and the mind, and become an alternative focus of attention when stressed. 3) The time pause that comes from meditation practice helps you to develop more adaptive responses to emotional triggers. 4) It is suggested that you maintain a mindfulness journal about regrettable  emotional reactions in your life, as well as your improvement in emotional balance. 5) Using vipassana awareness of the arising of phenomena, work at catching the earliest possible arising of unhelpful emotional reactions. 6) Regular meditation practice improves your ability to perceive and respond to the emotional reactions of others, thus improving interpersonal interactions. 7) Mindfulness-based awareness helps you to use your facial emotions to improve emotional issues both intrapsychically and interpersonally.
8) Regular meditation practice, especially vipassana, will improve your ability to feel emotional sensations in your body (interoception), thus giving you a small window of time to use executive functions to improve your responses. 9) Regular meditation practice enhances executive functioning and weakens limbic emotional reactivity, thus enabling you to shorten time periods of negative reactivity and shift back to your emotional baseline more quickly.
10) Meditation practice helps you to discover the behavioral implications of emotional and behavioral reactivity; you begin to understand how a stimulus situation leads to impulsive emotional reactions. 11) Improved mindful awareness of increasing mind-body reactivity helps you to separate from it more quickly, and activate a more adaptive response.
13) Learning meditative breathing techniques helps you to use breath as a diversion of attention away from reactive stimuli and triggers.
14) Meditation practice, especially vipassana, helps you to become more aware of how to attain freedom from emotional suffering. 15) Improved awareness in the present moment helps you to better avoid and respond better to emotional situations that may trigger unhelpful emotional reactions.
16) If you experience strong afflictive emotions (unhelpful, unwholesome), do your best to shift responses into the opposite directions.
17) Use present moment mindfulness skills to increase the neuronal power of happy, good, and wholesome experiences and memories in life.
18) Practice letting go of your self-cherishing, and do more to help others improve their emotional experiences in life. 19) As within The Four Noble Truths, recognize that suffering is normal, and that meditation practice is one way to reduce personal suffering. 21) Remember that your thoughts, words and deed become how you impact your own emotions and the emotions of others in the world.

Get in touch with the body. When was the last time you noticed how your body was feeling? Not just when you have a headache or you’re tired or you have heartburn after that spicy taco you ate for lunch.
They too easily become vessels we feed, water, and rest so they can continue to cart around our brains.

When the waves are very active it’s impossible to see the stillness at the bottom; when the waves subside it’s easier to see the deep stillness. The amount of energy that can flow through you depends on how open your chakras and nadis are.

I found her teaching to be based on sound scientific principles without the loss of her humanity.
But just noticing how your body is feeling right now, while you’re sitting or standing or lying down. We don’t pay attention to the information our bodies are sending us or the effect that forces such as stress are having—until real health problems set in.
When your mind is happy and clear, your breath is long and easy; when your mind is bombarded with anxious thoughts your breath becomes shorter and shallower. Often when you’re sad you link it to an event or person, but much of the time sadness occurs in you because your prana is low.
While practicing various forms of meditation, she discovered the benefits of Mindfulness Meditation and its direct connection to the body. Sophia’s teaching places emphases on a deep connection with the breath, stillness and clarity of the mind, strength, balance and a mindful flow of movement.

She holds a certificate in Applied Mindfulness Meditation from U of T and is currently completing her studies in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. In four 1.5 hour classes throughout the month of February, you will learn how to relax your body, use your breath to focus your thoughts, and create a more compassionate outlook on life. How about noticing how your body feels while you’re sitting in an important meeting or walking down the street or playing with your children? When you work consciously with your breath, as you do with yoga breathing techniques, you automatically create an environment inside yourself that is conducive to clear thinking. Only when it becomes still and rested can we see and access the peace that resides in the inner core of our being and yoga is one way of helping that happen. Her classes include asanas (practice of postures), pranayama (breathing techniques) and dhyana (meditation). William Tiller, a former Stanford professor and published researcher, postulates that these energies hold a link between our physical body and individual health.Specific channels (meridians) transport this energy to create a balanced flow of self-healing properties. In fact your breath is your most powerful and effective tool for clearing your mind in a short amount of time. These sessions are provided on a drop-in basis, and students are welcome to attend any session throughout the year. When blockages disrupt these channels, the event can serve as a catalyst for lingering illness and toxins to flood the immune system.
The regulation of this natural energy through the use of acupuncture points and conscious intention allows for the maintenance of positive flow, and functions as natural medicine in preventing sickness and healing the body.The human body contains numerous canals that serve as channels for subtle energies to flow freely. This is the activated energetic framework in which the aura meditation does its thing.Tiller references acupuncture and another method, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), as modalities to bio-regulate energy flow and free up blocked energy pathways. An acupuncturist, for example, inserts needles into specific points along the meridian lines to treat imbalance and restore the flow of chi.EFT, however, utilizes acupuncture points in a different way.
Tiller believes that conscious intention creates its own energy field capable of communicating with the universe. Positive intention and focused consciousness will also free up meridian blockages, and allow for the free flowing of chi throughout the body.Dr. The human body is a complex system that sends waves of energy to the seven major chakras via meridian channels. Practices such as acupuncture, the emotional freedom technique, and cultivated conscious intention work to balance the flow of energy in the body and free up blockages.Lack of pre-emptive attention to energy flow can lead to disruptions between the meridians and chakras, which can send the body into disarray and illness. For modern medicine to advance, a paradigm shift from the rigid view of Western medicine will need to recognize the value in bioenergy regulation and its quantifiable effects on human health.
