Emotional Healing Online Workshop

Applying Buddhist Wisdom to Everyday Problems


Life is not perfect! We have been sold a “bill of goods” in the belief that life should be perfect. And, when it is not, we get upset! Our body, speech and mind become flooded with reactive emotions! From a Buddhist perspective, there are 3 core reactive emotions, from which all the myriad other reactive emotions arise. They are grasping attachment, anger and indifference.

With grasping attachment, we grasp on to things that do not last, trying to control people or things by holding on. With anger, we feel resentment, frustration or hostility when things are not the way we want them to be. We try to control people or things by force. With indifference, we deny, ignore or withdraw from the reality of the change we dislike. We try to act as if control doesn’t matter.

When we are besieged by these reactive emotions, we “judge” the world through a clouded point of view: when angry, we label the other as an enemy; when attached, we label the other as a friend; and when indifferent, we label the other as a stranger.

We need a way out from the ensnaring trap of these reactive emotions. Buddhism has many methods to help set us free and help us find happiness, ease of well-being and compassion. This workshop will share a powerful method that is called “investigative inquiry” or “analytical meditation.” It is like the Socratic method of asking thoughtful questions and letting the inner wisdom of your own mind come up with the answers.

Every session will have exercises with a workbook and a guided meditation that will develop your own inner stillness and awareness of how to listen to the answers that will arise from within your heart. The roots of each poisonous emotion of attachment, anger and indifference will be examined and through experiential exercises, you will gain the means to transform these feelings into states of contentment, well-being and equanimity.
