Description:
We are all triggered at times by what people say or do, especially in relationships. Our triggers can teach us about ourselves, both what’s still unresolved, and what we need to work on. Our goal isn’t to root out all our triggers, but to use them as trail-heads for our own inner journeys that have long awaited us. Whether via the psychology path, especially when grieving the past, or the spiritual paths of mindfulness and lovingkindness, we’ll discover and cultivate practices and resources to support us. In this day, we’ll explore how to move from the suffering of reacting to the freedom of responding.


Continuing Education (CE) credit available. Teachings are appropriate for health care professionals as well as the general public. Health care professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
