THIS MAY BE A GAMECHANGER

Surfing Emotions

No Longer Afraid of Monster Waves 

Emotions, Feelings, and Mods are known to be troublesome companions. They throw us out of our comfort zone and make us dive deep below the happy scale. So we have developed many ways to deal with them: We repress or overly express them, turn them into eternal stories, and get addicted to variations of these stories. 

 

How about putting Emotions to better use?

FEELINGS ARE UNIVERSAL COMMUNICATION

Dialogue Workshop

A SPACE OF LEARNING AND CO-CREATION

Preface

I have read and pondered extensively on the nature of emotions and their significance in our lives. It fascinates me deeply. One of my most significant observations is that our culture does not adequately accommodate them. From early childhood, we are taught that emotions are troublesome, that we should suppress them, and if we must experience them, we should not display them openly. This frequently leads to the "breaking the dam" phenomenon, where emotions erupt uncontrollably. Naturally, this is an unpleasant experience, and understandably, we strive to avoid such states.

Thinking vs Feeling

There is considerable debate surrounding what precedes the other: thoughts creating feelings, or feelings creating thoughts. Who can say for certain?
In this workshop, we will explore an alternative approach to interacting with emotions. Rather than judging and evading them, we will seek to comprehend their states, their dynamics, and their essence.
Based on my experiences, I firmly believe that emotions constitute vital energy in our lives.

Wanting. Wondering. Worrying. 

WHEN EMOTIONS STAND ALONE 

What we will explore 

  • How many emotions do we recognize?

  • What language do we use to express them?

  • In what states do they manifest?

  • How can we maintain their natural flow?

  • How can we learn to view them as allies?

  • How do we release them from stagnation?

  • How can we evoke them intentionally?

  • How do we find joy in their expression?

My Worldview 

My personal worldview is influenced by Daoism, particularly through the teachings of the I-Ching. It guides me in navigating the challenges posed by the powerful force of the Ego. While familiarity with these concepts isn't necessary for enjoying this workshop, I believe in transparency regarding my foundational beliefs.

The Cosmic I-Ching, which I use, posits that the Cosmos embodies a Feeling consciousness, one that also thinks. As humans, our purpose lies in actively participating in the evolutionary journey of the Cosmos by authentically living out our inherent gifts. Regrettably, our overemphasis on rational thought has led us astray.

In our predominantly rational society, we tend to prioritize tangible, scientifically provable phenomena, which leads to a disconnect and allows our emotions to roam unchecked in search of meaning.

Through my own journey, I'm learning to interpret the messages encoded within my emotions. This understanding flows into my coaching practice, empowering my clients to embrace and find purpose in their emotional experiences.
