Many of us would like more control over strong emotions, or to put an end to difficult emotions. This 8-day course teaches meditation not to control or rid yourself of emotion, but to help you fully accept all that makes you human. As presence strengthens, you’ll become more trusting of your emotions, cherishing each as you would an old friend. Topics for this course include:

  • Gain genuine insight and perspective into your emotions
  • Learn how emotions function and what you can expect from them
  • Work directly with emotions using experiential meditation
  • Transform negative emotions into something workable and healthy
  • Advance your meditation practice and experience greater insight
  • Realize why strong emotions may be the best ground for practice
