Transforming Negative Emotions Virtual Retreat [video bundle]
In this 13 hour virtual retreat, we've brought together a diverse lineup of Bhakti & Buddhist practitioners and wisdom leaders for a virtual retreat to help you navigate your darkness with less fear and more compassion.
How can we find space between our emotions and the actions they could potentially inspire?
Love doesn’t have to be weak and sentimental - it’s actually a powerful and steadfast force. The question of our freedom of our suffering is a question of how we relate to our emotions, and not pretending they don’t exist.
In this virtual retreat, you will discover how to:
- Break out of the "Us vs. Them" mindset by learning to identify your enemies (both inner and outer) in order to transform your relationship to them.
- Develop compassion, patience, and love by accepting what is beyond your control.
- Create spacious Loving Awareness around your negative thoughts in order to transform them into "benign little shmoos" (as Ram Dass calls them).
- Learn how to accept and love your personal demons by locating, personifying and eventually feeding the parts of yourself that cause suffering.
- Move through stressful situations with more ease.
