Starts Monday, March 8th, 2021: 4 Weeks. This course is for people who have taken a course at Empathy Academy, who feel comfortable working with their emotions, and who are ready to use their skills to help them redefine their relationship to fear. This course is based on the applied work of Karla McLaren, in her book, The Language of Emotions.
You can embrace the gifts of fear! In this course, you’ll learn about the different kinds of fear, the gifts that fear brings, and its (and therefore, your) relationship to procrastination, change, and intuition. You’ll also examine your assumptions and unconscious contracts around the fear family.
Examine Your Assumptions About Fear
Fear is an emotion that people tend to shy away from, and distance themselves from, because there are so many negative assumptions about what feeling fear means. In this course, you’ll be working from the DEI definition of fear; fear is your instincts, intuition, and your focused attention, and it helps you adjust to changes in your physical and emotional environment.
In this course, you will be examining your own assumptions about what fear is and isn’t, learning how to identify the feeling of fear in your body, and working with the 5 Empathic Mindfulness practices to regulate your emotions, update contracts, and hone your relationship with your instincts and intuition.
You’ll be looking at the role that fear plays in relationship to procrastination, emotion-shaming messages, handling change, and how fear is often confused with other emotions, such as panic or anxiety.
Embrace the Gifts of Fear
Throughout this course, you’ll reflect on your assumptions about fear, your relationship to fear, and the unconscious contracts you hold around the fear family of emotions. Through a series of journal prompts and self-directed experiential exercises, as well as the optional forum questions and live webinars, you’ll explore the ways in which your fear shapes your behavior and supports your ability to cope with change.
In this course, you’ll explore:
• How your fear feels physically and emotionally in your body and mind (it may not be what you think!)
• The assumptions and emotion-shaming messages you hold about fear.
• The emotion-supporting messages that ring true for you.
• A 4-step process designed to help you bring conscious awareness to working with fear.
• How your intuition is already showing up in your life.
• The way that fear interacts with panic, anxiety, shame, and anger.
