“Our feelings are not there to be cast out or conquered. They’re there to be engaged and expressed with imagination and intelligence.” ― T.K. Coleman
Emotions are strange things that most of us don’t really understand too well. Even science struggles to fully understand emotions, since in some ways they seem to originate in the brain, but they manifest significantly in the body. One thing is sure: emotions can have a major impact in our lives, especially if we fail to channel their considerable energy in appropriate directions. Western society has long tried to get people to feel less and to reason more, under the belief that this approach leads to progress. But it seems fair to say that people who think without experiencing and expressing their emotions contribute to a lot of ideas that do not serve humanity very well. So, we are left to wonder if there is a solution!
Thankfully, we have people like Ilene Dillon, a highly trained psychotherapist with a lot of experience helping people (including herself) to deal with challenging emotions, to bring some wisdom to this conversation. And I invited her back to Life Mastery TV so share some of this wisdom, specifically in the area of emotional mastery.
Please watch the recording, where we have a conversation about all of these subjects:
