Befriending Emotion: Emotional Struggles and the Gift of Tenderness

Emotional pain is difficult for all of us, and mainstream culture offers solutions focused on avoiding pain and focusing on the positive. This talk will consider evidence informed practices that teach us how to treat our difficult thoughts and feelings compassionately, not punitively. We hurt where we love, and thus our pain can point us to our deepest and most cherished values.
