Also, if you missed it, check out the recording from Molly's free, 30 minute, mini workshop, Emotions are Not Private.
We all have emotions, yet how well do we understand them? How well can we explain what they are? How well can we manage them? In this six-week course, author Molly Dahl takes us on a journey of what the emotions are, why we have them, and what we can do to enjoy more of the positive ones. And importantly, what we can do to understand, and change, the powerful negative emotions that sometimes run away with our logical thinking and good behavior, leaving us flailing under the effects of the chemical cascade of fear or anger.
Based on the research and practices from the fields of Positive Psychology and Emotion Science, Molly provides several tools and interactive exercises to guide you through an exploration of your emotional landscape. During instructional time, participants will be guided through the practices in order to establish your own level of comfort so you can do them anywhere as the need arises.
You’ll come to understand the differences between emotion and behavior, patterned reactions and considered responses, and a life of suffering versus a life of well-being.
