The RAIN Meditation Practice

RAIN is a mindfulness meditation practice that can be used in any situation, but is typically applied to unpleasant, uncomfortable, or upsetting thoughts or events.

Apply the RAIN acronym to your thoughts, emotions, and feelings:

  1. Recognize
  2. Accept
  3. Investigate
  4. Not-Identify

Approaching painful emotions in this way can transform them into more workable, revealing experiences. Practicing RAIN can also prevent unhelpful responses such as rumination or other harmful/aggressive behavior.
