Working with Strong Emotions
Emotions are a part of being human. It is through emotion that we experience life and connect with our world. At the same time, emotions can be painful and over whelming, quickly becoming a source of suffering and struggle as we try to control or avoid them. Through the practice of meditation, we cultivate an atmosphere of friendliness to our self within which we can transform our relationship with strong emotions from one of suffering and struggle to one of openness and curiosity,
This workshop will include mindfulness-awareness meditation instruction and practice. Participants will be introduced to contemplative approaches that work directly with some of the more challenging emotions that arise in daily life.
