Meditation and the Release Valve

Meditation can be like loosening a valve to release pressure. Sometimes emotions, strong thoughts, and anxiety can build up and create pressure inside. Coming into direct contact with these elements through meditation and mindfulness practice can act as a release valve that lets out pressure. Afterward, we often experience a feeling of lightness and ease.

Coming into direct contact with experience means there’s no filter or barrier (resistance) keeping you separate from what is arising in this moment.
