We have all experienced periods of emotional intensity. Whether it lasts for minutes or for years, whether we know the root cause or just have a vague feeling that something is off balance, these waves of emotion can rock us to our roots. It is difficult and courageous to be with our emotional discomfort, to let it teach us where we are holding back, closing off or grasping. It is far easier to keep moving, to stay busy and distracted or to push these feelings away. However, as Pema Chodron says, “Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.”
This workshop is designed to give you simple and effective practices for working with and being present to emotional disturbance. We will work with four common emotional imbalances: Anxiety/Fear, Stress/Overwhelm, Anger/Irritation and Fatigue/Withdrawal. For each of these states, you will learn a simple 30 minute set of practices designed to bring you back into a state of balance, connection and peace. The practices include breath work, yoga poses, meditation, affirmation, visualization and essential oils. Participants will receive a set of 4 essential oil blend samples and a handout of the practices.
