Befriending Your Emotions

The Guest House -

The Guesthouse (excerpt)

This being human is a Guesthouse.

Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness.

Some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…


Emotions are generally seen as something we should avoid at all costs, particularly those we believe are negative such as anger, fear, sadness, or anxiety. However, if we ignore them they can grow bigger, or we spill or act them out in our relationships with others. The truth is our emotions give us information, and when explored can give us a pathway to uncover our needs and point us to more skillful choices and action.

Join at the Well of Mercy for an afternoon workshop to:

  • Recognize the purpose of emotions and what they are trying to tell us.
  • Discover where they live in the body.
  • Participate in experiential exercises such as journaling, guided meditation and mind-body exercises to connect and discover new ways of relating with our emotions.

This workshop will be presented by Claudia Barnes who is a Life Coach and Workshop Facilitator that has spent more than 20 years guiding clients through personal and career transition and empowering them to find their purpose and live more authentically.
