HOW TO MEDITATE 3

THE EMOTIONS: transformation of "negative" emotions, inner child + self love

THE SECOND PART "HOW TO MEDITATE 2" COVERED THE ASPECTS OF OUR SENSATIONS AND OUR THOUGHTS. IN THIS THIRD PART WE WILL LEARN HOW TO TRANSFORM OUR "NEGATIVE" EMOTIONS THROUGH AWARENESS AND LOVE. IT CONTAINS:

  • 4 lessons lasting 2-3 hours divided into 9-10 steps to be done in your own time
  • 12 downloadable guided meditations for you
  • 10 worksheet exercises (more fun than it sounds)
  • 4 multiple choice quizzes (definitely more fun than it sounds)
  • 24 video talks
  • a total of ca. 18 hours of material (10 hours of guided meditations)
  • personalised support by me for all your questions and difficulties (by email or Skype/Facetime/WhatsApp Video)
  • access to the online meditation meetings of the TALO WebSangha

Lesson 9 - Your Inner Child. What exactly are emotions and how do they manifest? We have the possibility to understand exactly what emotions we are feeling and to feel them acceptingly. This already is the first step of emotional transformation. With visualisation we learn about a new meditation technique in this lesson and we meet our most important helper and assistant: our inner child. In this third part of the course in each lesson we will present one monastic mindfulness practice. In the ninth lesson this practice will be the "Noble Silence". The lesson will end with a guided meditation of 70 minutes (40 minutes sitting meditation, 10 minutes Kinhin walking meditation, 20 minutes sitting meditation).

Lesson 10 - Accepting and transforming. Emotions are triggered by certain thoughts and belief-sentences which are based on the three mental poisons we covered at the end of the second part. In the first guided meditation of this lesson we will recognise and transform these thoughts creating a new fundament for new and different emotions. In this lesson we will have a close look at the emotions anger, powerlessness and hatred and we will practice the acceptance and transformation of these emotions in the second guided meditation. The monastic mindfulness practice of the 10th lesson is working meditation. Also this lesson will be concluded with a guided meditation of 70 minutes (40 minutes sitting meditation, 10 minutes Kinhin walking meditation, 20 minutes sitting meditation).

Lesson 11 - Your True Nature. There are not only negative emotions in us but also love, compassion, joy and peace. These "unlimited mental states" are a part of our true nature and we don't have to create or to reach them because they are already present and fully developed in us. At the moment they are covered by unconscious thoughts and the emotions resulting from these thoughts. In this lesson we will cover especially the emotions of fear, inferiority, sadness and loneliness. The mindfulness practice of the 11th lesson is eating meditation. The lesson will be concluded by a guided meditation of 70 minutes (40 minutes sitting meditation, 10 minutes Kinhin walking meditation, 20 minutes sitting meditation).

Lesson 12 - Love. In the last lesson of the course we will practice "Metta", the universal love. Love is the force which heals everything also our so-called negative emotions. In this lesson we will also conclude the "Four Foundations of Mindfulness (Satipatthana)" which represented the structure of the whole course. We will have a close look at the remaining emotions of envy, jealousy, guilt and shame and we will practice their emotional transformation. In conclusion we will talk about the decisive topic of forgiveness and practice forgiveness in a meditative ritual. The last mindfulness practice presented in the course is mindful speaking and listening. As always the lesson will be concluded by a guided meditation of 70 minutes.

Volker Winkler

I've been practicing buddhist meditation for nearly 20 years now (Zen / Vipassana / Thich Nhat Hanh) and I've been teaching it for over 10 years in Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Southamerica. In 2014 I wrote and published the book "Gehmeditation im Alltag" (Walking Meditation In Everyday Life) in German which was published in 2015 also in Italian.


I live and work in Ticino/Switzerland teaching meditation and transformation in courses, seminars and individual therapy-sessions live and online.

By adding a component of emotional and energetic transformation to the buddhist meditation practice of the "Four Foundations of Mindfulness" (Satipatthana) using guided visualized meditations I developed the TALO-Meditation: "Transformation by Awareness and Love".
I experienced the effectiveness of TALO first on myself and then saw impressive changes over the years in many of my practicing friends and clients. I'm sure it can help you as well.

Liberate your mind,
heal your emotions
and enjoy life
more and more every day!
