FBN Asia: "Inside Out" Well-being Session - Mindfulness of Emotions
| Saturday, September 19, 2020 | 10:00 PM EDT
Join us for an online mindfulness practice, in which our feelings are not "good" or "bad," "positive" or "negative" -- they just are. We want to cultivate an attitude of unconditional acceptance and curiosity towards all emotions. There is no need to censor or judge how we feel. Over time, this can help us accept and honour all of our emotional experiences each and every day, a journey that has become so important in 2020..
