One sentence summary: Learn how to understand, re-direct and make use of stress, anxiety and difficult emotions through awareness and meditation
Overview: Stress, anxiety, fear, anger, attachment – Ordinarily we see these states of mind and emotion as negative; things that get in the way of our happiness and wellbeing, and prevent us from achieving the goals and quality of life that we would like.
But what if there was a way in which we could learn to work with these negative and difficult energies in such a way that we could transform and redirect them, making them sources of positive and empowering energy, helping us to accomplish our goals and awaken to a new level of fulfillment?
This course is exactly that; it teaches you how you can transform your stress, anxiety and other difficult emotions into forces for the good in your life.
Results You Can Expect for the Workshop:
The course will teach you how to:
- Get to know and understand the negative energy and emotion in your life more deeply and intimately, seeing its potential value
- Develop the capacity to recycle, transform and redirect this difficult energy into a positive force that works for you rather than against you
- Find yourself thriving in situations and circumstances that would previously make you unhappy, fearful, inhibited and so on…
- Open to a whole new more enlightened level of mental resilience, inner wellbeing and wisdom
Module 1 – Meditation and talk on transforming negative stress, anxiety and fear into positive energy, creativity and enhanced life force
Module 2 – Meditation and talk on transforming negative and destructive anger into positive power and into mental and social resilience
Module 3 – Meditation and talk on transforming attachment and clinging into positive desire and practical love
