A Little Talk on Feeling Tone Posted on October 17, 2020 by Mary Slocum Reply In this little talk I explore feeling tone. In mindfulness feeling tone has a very specific meaning. It means the feeling of pleasant, unpleasant, or neither pleasant nor unpleasant (neutral) we feel in the moment of an experience arising. When we are not mindful–when our minds are flighty and not focused–we fly right over feeling tone into reactive emotions and thoughts. When we train our minds to pay attention and notice feeling tone, we give ourselves the opportunity to pause and to respond appropriately, rather than react from habit. Feeling tone is like having a mini super-power we can use in every moment of our experience.
