Workshop Details – PART 1 of 3

WORKBOOK INCLUDED – During the course of any ordinary day, ripples of emotion will run through our minds. All kinds of feelings bubble up and occupy our attention—sometimes we hardly notice them but at other times they can overwhelm us with their intensity. In any moment, our emotions can lift us into euphoria, or plunge us into despair. We can feel as if we have no control and simply need to weather the storm.

Learning to be aware of our emotions can begin to change that feeling of helplessness. By understanding the nature of an emotion, how it is triggered and the ways in which it can take hold we can slowly begin to see what is going on. Applying awareness to emotions shows us that rather than being fixed and solid, they are fluid and changeable. We can learn to dance with their energy, rather than letting them define us.

Mindfulness meditation is the means by which we come to understand the nature of emotions, and learn to access their creative power.

Drawing on ideas from Buddhism, Existential Wellbeing and current neurological research these three workshops will explore how emotions work and the habits we develop in order to try and manage them. People new to mindfulness will have the opportunity to learn some basic mindfulness techniques and experienced meditators will have the chance to deepen their skills.
