Gorge Happiness: Loving Your Fears [HR]
October 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Monday, October 7th, Hood River Library, 6 – 8 pm
When we meet our fears with the courage of our hearts, we loosen the grips of doubt, judgment, “I’m not good enough,” and feelings of stuckness. In this seminar we review the evolutionary psychology of why the human brain is predisposed to over-exaggerate threats, ruminate on disappointments, undervalue our capabilities, and be critical of ourselves and others. Heightened awareness of our habitual negative tendencies is the first step to then cultivating the power of self-love to reframe and diminish fears. Identify and reframe habitual thought processes that no longer serve you. Learn some simple mindfulness practices to deepen your ability to be at ease with the inevitable ebbs and flows of life.
