« Every time I feel an emotion, it annoys me! It annoys me! I think I'm going to fly away... » - Jules Renard
- Transform and welcome all the power of emotions in the masculine, in the feminine and in the relationship,
- Identify, understand, express and use emotions as a resource,
- Integrate and regulate experience, awareness and energy of emotions in oneself and beyond…
One of our most basic needs is to be happy and healthy. This is fundamentally possible when we are in balance and our vital energy can flow without hindrance. In difficult situations, when we repress feelings we are unable to admit or when we prevent ourselves from perceiving the emotions arising within us, we block them in our body and thus the free circulation of our vital energy is impaired.
Such trapped energies often become an invisible but very real cause of many of our physical and emotional discomforts in life. Transformation can happen when we are able to relax in the presence of our emotions and become observers and conscient actors of our inner world.
During this week’s journey in the heart of our emotions we will explore how to recognize, transform or move through emotions and create space for the expression of true feelings where love has its place.
We live in a culture where it is often neither polite nor appropriate to show one's emotions. This is why many of us are used to keeping fear, anger, sadness, disgust or even joy within. In this journey we will have an opportunity to visit beliefs such as:
- I should not show how angry or sad I am, what will people think of me?
- I have to be strong and functional, which is incompatible with being emotional
- It is useless and embarrassing to be so sensitive
- If I let an emotion express itself, it can overwhelm me and I can lose control
- I can handle anger but cannot cope with sadness
- I can handle sadness but cannot cope with anger
- I welcome joy and excitement but all other emotions mean that something is wrong with me
Then through specific practices - individual, with a partner or in group - we will explore how to:
- Increase awareness of the energy of emotions that move through us and feel more in touch with our body
- Experiment in each chakra what triggers our emotions and the reactions they provoke in ourselves and others in order to better understand ourselves and make more conscious choices
- Let the energy of emotions consciously express itself through sound, breath and movement in order to bring more clarity and fluidity to our exchanges
- Transform the energy of emotions into an ecstatic and creative power of well-being in the body, heart and mind in order to create better relations with ourselves, those around us and the world
- Open pathways to circulate the vital energy of emotions from pelvis to crown, feel more vitality and present.
- Find a sense of lightness and flow with life and whatever it brings us
- Practice and live our sexuality by welcoming and embracing our emotions and those of others with awareness and love.
