The acronym RAIN – Recognize, Allow, Investigate, Nurture – guides us in bringing mindfulness and compassion to difficult emotions. With practice, we can find our way home to open-hearted presence in the midst of whatever arises.
Allow yourself to be with your feelings and see what they have to tell you. The video below is Tara Brach leading you through a meditation using the practice of RAIN.
