Amid a global pandemic that limits social outlets and upends daily life, it’s only human to run into feelings of loneliness. In Solitude Meditation, you’ll start learning to be alone and separate yourself from feelings of loneliness by reconnecting to yourself and others. Most importantly — you’ll explore real ways to cope.
Begin by checking in with your breath and releasing built-up tension, tension you might not have realized you were holding onto. Allow yourself to be guided through self-exploration, such as a body scan or through breathing exercises in this group meditation. Ask yourself questions like “What’s my internal weather?” or “Does my loneliness represent me as a person? Who am I without these feelings?” By naming and identifying emotions you’ll begin to unravel their power. You’ll end your session exploring potential solutions to feelings of loneliness or exclusion, and what might work best for your unique situation.
Important to remember, is that feelings of unease will pass, and with practice you will prosper again, despite uncertainty. Solitude Meditation can guide you to a clearer mindset where you can break down tough feelings and return to your old self.
