Since the very beginning of the pandemic, I have been in awe of how this collective experience is both allowing and forcing us to feel deeply. To be with our feelings with way fewer distractions than usual.
In some ways, the current circumstances have given us the needed space to feel the full range of emotions – “good” and “bad”, joyful and overwhelming.
Uncertainties in multiple levels of our lives, combined with the movement for Black lives and reflections on our role in systemic racism, seem to be pushing against the edges of our emotional capacity.
In this 3-part women’s circles series, we’ll explore:
- the nature of our relationship with our feelings
- how to expand our capacity to be with and learn from emotions
- what emotional balance really means and how to get there
SESSION 1: Uncovering our Stories about Feelings
We all carry stories about our feelings. They are seen as ’negative’ or ‘positive’, the type we like or the type we want to avoid. Those stories define our relationship to different emotional states.
In this session, we will uncover the narratives and beliefs defining how we relate to our feelings.
What do you gain by believing in those stories?
Which ones are serving you and which ones can you let go of?
In these 90-min session, you can expect a mix of experiential inquiry, storytelling, authentic sharing and rituals to strengthen your connection to inner guidance and to your feelings.
