Starts Monday, April 1st: 4 Weeks. This course is for: Everyone. This experiential online course helps you welcome the healing flow of sadness and explore its relationship with your other emotions. This course is based on the The Language of Emotions by Karla McLaren, and her applied work, Dynamic Emotional Integration® (DEI).
Welcoming Flow into Your Life
When your sadness is flowing and welcome in your life, then everything seems to go more easily. Having a healthy relationship with sadness means you recognize when it’s time to let things go, and you have practices to help you do so. Relaxing and taking care of yourself comes easily when you can access your sadness — and you’ll feel revitalized because of it.
In this course, facilitated by dual-licensed DEI Trainer and Consultant Anchen Texter, you’ll be inviting the flow of sadness to help release old ideas around what sadness is and isn’t. You’ll also be delving deeper into the gifts of sadness, the practices to help you stay present with your emotions, and the relationship between sadness and anger. While you might think that a course about sadness will be heavy and feel like molasses, there’s a little-known secret about sadness that will keep things flowing: sadness can clear the way for joy and happiness.
In this course, we will cover:
- The messages and gifts in sadness
- The 5 Empathic Mindfulness practices
- How to work with sadness to embrace change gracefully
- The relationship between sadness and anger
- How to work with the other emotions in the sadness family, such as grief, depression, and the suicidal urge
- The integral place of sadness in self-care
