How to Befriend Your Most Challenging Emotions and ExperiencesIn challenging times, why do so many of us turn to Pema Chd̲rn̲ for guidance? Many say that it's her honest and caring way of communicating the core teachings of Buddhism-not just conceptually, but directly from her heart to ours. In these inspiring sessions, she teaches us how to give that compassion to the person we neglect most often-ourselves. With her, you will explore:What to do when it feels impossible to be kind to ourselvesIn challenging relationships and situations, how to let go of our story and see what's really happeningCultivating inner comfort and greater kindness toward our bodiesLeaning into frustration, sadness, and fear with a spirit of trust and intimacyMany other insights and recommendations to befriend the difficult places within usThrough gentle and clear guidance, Coming Closer to Ourselves shows us how, even in the tumult of life's uncertainties, we can begin with a glimmer of curiosity, move closer into our experiences, and discover a place of welcome and refuge within.Course objectives:Discuss what to do when it feels impossible to be kind to ourselvesDescribe how to let go of our story and see what's really happening within challenging relationships and situationsExplain how to cultivate inner comfort and greater kindness toward our bodiesDiscuss how to lean into frustration, sadness, and fear with a spirit of trust and intimacy
