The meditation was fairly simple. First we settled ourselves with breathing and found where these hard emotions were held in our bodies. Then we sent love to these areas, both mentally, emotionally, and physically with breath and a light touch. We’ve done an exercise like this before, and we know it works for people to more easily move through their emotions. But then something new happened. Even though we were all online, we imagined ourselves sitting in an energetic circle. We imagined a ring of light connecting us all, each person in their perfect spot in the circle. And then, while we kept one hand on our emotional pain, we took our other hand and imagined placing in into the ring of the circle. We felt the others in the circle. We offered support to all of them. And then, powerfully, we gave our pain to the circle.
