Life has its ups and downs, and for many, even an ordinary day can lead to one emotional rollercoaster after another. Being unable to regulate our emotions and having sudden changes in mood can leave us feeling mentally and physically exhausted and with a desire to escape or run away.
Our emotions are important – they shape our experience of our reality. They can be wonderful, and they can be unbearable. Sometimes we want to hold on to them forever, and other times we want rid of them. Whatever the experience, for most of us, emotions seem beyond our control, as if they happen to us, and we have no say in whether they stay or go.
Our ‘Becoming Bulletproof: Emotional Resilience’ program is all about cultivating a profound sense of mental and emotional balance. It’s not about suppressing negative emotions, but about learning to experience and govern our emotions in a healthy, dynamic way.
During this 5-week course, drawing on practical experience of meditation, psychology, and Buddhist wisdom, you will cultivate the ability of the mind and body to maintain equilibrium and flexibility in the face of challenge and change. Meditation will help you to deepen your understanding of emotions, and discover the ability to regulate your emotional responses. Cultivating this emotional balance will promote physical health, and will be a prerequisite for enhancing personal wellbeing and growth.
