Emotion Focused Mindfulness course at the Al and Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre
Emotion-Focused Mindfulness (EFM) is a way of developing self-compassionate awareness through mindfulness. Using principles from Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and Recollective Awareness Meditation, practicing EFM helps cultivate tolerance and curiosity for the present moment – including thoughts and emotions alongside physical experience.
Emotion-Focused Mindfulness highlights a mindful awareness practice that can help us better navigate emotions in meditation, decreasing suffering, increasing happiness, and empowering us to live more deeply valued lives. Rather than feeling better, the emphasis is on getting better at feeling so that our feelings help us to better navigate our lives.
