Loving Our Emotions--All of Them

Life is constantly beckoning to us to BE fully in the Present Moment. Yet few of us live fully in the present, in large part due to limiting beliefs we’ve internalized, and the unintegrated emotional imprint we carry from past distressing experiences. The good news is that our human operating system includes the capacity to integrate (“heal”) all sorts of painful, upsetting experiences. And emotional integration allows our attention to naturally come back to the Present Moment.

This support group will utilize two powerful tools for emotional integration: the Presence Process, and Supportive Listening.

The Presence Process is a guided ten-week week journey into increasing our present-moment awareness, outlined in the book by the same name. Supportive Listening is a streamlined version of what is called by some “co-counseling” or “re-evaluation counseling”. The basic idea behind supportive listening is to take turns giving one another conscious, supportive attention, so that the person being listened to can “get out” (process, release, etc.) whatever is bottled up in them that is distorting their experience. Together we will support each other to learn and practice these powerful tools for liberating true selves. We will support each other’s practice of the Presence Process, as well as learn and utilize Supportive Listening to assist one another’s emotional integration.

This support group will meet once a week on Monday evening for 12 weeks. The group will remain open for the first few weeks, and then will be open only to people who are fully committed to working through the Preseence Process as laid out in the required text, “The Presence Process” by Michael Brown (the 2010 version, not the 2005 version). The Presence Process involves about 45 minutes each day of reading and practice. The requirements for participation in this support group include: getting the required text and practicing the Presence Process and regularly, a commitment to attending as often as possible, and being present in the support group in a way that helps others feel safe and supported.

    I know this was delayed from last week and you had wrote me that it was pushed back a couple weeks or so, to find a location. Is it happening tonight or will it be a later date? If tonight, where will it be held? Thanks

    Hi Tammy, glad you're interested. The book is designed as a self-facilitated 10-week journey. The group is an extra. I encourage you to check out the book at Amazon. If it speaks to you, get it and jump in! I'd be glad to hear about how the journey goes for you. :-)
