As a child, did you ever sit under a favorite tree, immersed in the wonder of a single, precious leaf?

Great Guided Meditation about Dealing w/Emotions
- George R. Schar
I'm very disappointed
I thought this would be a half-hour talk on working with difficult emotions. It was a half-hour guided meditation. And that would have been fine, too, if there was more guidance. It was basically this: Focus on your breath, then focus on a negative emotion, then focus on a positive emotion. That was the whole thing.
I don't think this should be sold separately because it's uncharacteristically empty for something from Pema Chodron.
I've listened to MANY. Some I like more than others, but this one was just far below her usual standards, in my opinion.
Well, it's tool you can use when you feel horrible, and it helps a little bit. I guess it's worth $2.44, but being well acquainted with her other work, I just had higher expectations.
