“No, Ananda. It is the entirety of the path.”
Adult relationships invariably produce intense emotional states— excitement, sadness, yearning, anger, joy, anxiety— and we must learn to manage them with clarity and equanimity if we are to remain meaningfully connected.
This day-long will present:
-Further conceptual underpinnings to increase understanding of emotional regulation:
What is it? How does it work?
-Specific meditation practices, both alone and seated across from a partner, to directly increase your skill at emotional regulation.
-May this day of study and practice represent a step toward a deeper connection with the people who matter to you most, and to all humanity.
Call it low self-esteem stemming from a difficult background. And so it was a profound overcoming when I finally pushed through my fear, and began.In yoga, I trained extensively with Hala Khouri and Julian Walker in their psychology-informed Awakened Heart Embodied Mind training; with Saul David Raye in his devotional Atma Yoga style; and with Jason Frahm and Sifu Matthew Cohen.
By now I have been teaching meditation and yoga in Los Angeles for seven years. I believe passionately in the transformative power of these interior technologies, and in the uniquely modern intersection of neuroscience, spirituality, psychology, and meditation.And as a longtime poet, musician, playwright and actor, I remain fiercely devoted both to creativity as a spiritual path, and to exploring the ways in which spirituality itself informs creativity and lends vitality to the aesthetic domain.
