Each session provides a deep explanation of each mindfulness practice, the philosophy and the research behind it, as well as a step-by-step guide to how to practice it successfully.
Session 1: L = Label practice
Establish a consistent meditation practice. Label thoughts and emotions, and focus on the breath.
Session 2: O = Observe practice
Distinguish between the Thinking Mind and the Observing Mind. Create spaciousness between you and your thoughts and emotions.
Session 3: V = Value practice
Rather than judge ourselves for having these emotions, learn to value them as natural parts of the human experience.
Session 4: E = Embrace practice
Cultivate self-compassion as we embrace our emotions and offer them compassion and care.
Session 5: E = Equanimity practice
Cultivate inner strength and non-reactivity by accepting our circumstances rather than resist them.
Session 6: Putting LOVEE Altogether
When we practice them all in one meditation, we create a safe container for our emotions to be processed in a healthy way. Even if our circumstances haven't changed, with The LOVEE Method, we are able to relate to them in a new way and feel greater ease and joy.
