These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.
Learn how to use your emotions as gateways into wisdom, balance and full-hearted compassion.
Emotions are complicated. Emotions are powerful. Negative ones scare us. Positive ones elude us. But it needn’t be so.
The great poets and mystics have understood that emotions, used wisely, are a pathway to experience the Divine. As westerners, we have been trained to deny, suppress, control, ignore, and/or suffer through our emotions.
But it doesn’t work. Those emotions often erupt at the most inappropriate time over some silly little nothing in a way that is totally out of proportion to any given comment, event or situation. The result is often confusing, damaging and debilitating.
What if you knew how to skillfully deal with an emotion so you could use it to grow into a mature, wise self? Meditation teaches us how to do that.
In this workshop you’ll learn how to:
- Take things less personally.
- Keep other's emotions from derailing you.
- Understand, and no longer fear, the powerful forces we call, Emotion.
- Balance your own emotions.
Emotions, once you understand how to use them, are powerful forces you can use to help your heart unfold and your mind mature. This is known as wisdom.
I hope you can join me.
