About the Event

What on Earth are emotions for, and what should we do with them? This  course is a guide to understanding the purpose of emotions – the  pleasant and the unpleasant ones, and how to turn them from a being a  burden into becoming tools for empowerment.

FREE Entry – Open to everyone age 18+ 

Course of 5 weekly classes, Booking is for all 5 sessions:

Classes are offered to people with experience of mental health  difficulties, their family and friends, and the professionals who  support them.

Have you ever wondered what was the point of feeling sad, worried,  angry or anxious? Have you been told that anger should be kept quiet, or  felt that grief was stopping you from living fully?

When repressed, emotions turn into weapons against ourselves and can drive us into a trapped state of mental distress.

In this course we will discover the meaning and purpose of all those  emotions that we sometimes feel get in the way of a happy life, learn  how to express them safely and positively, and understand their messages  and gifts so as to learn to turn them into invaluable assets for inner  strength and true happiness.

In an atmosphere of gentle holding, through sharing, games, stories,  guided meditation and self-reflection, we will look at the usually taboo  world of emotions, discover ways of expressing them in a positive way  and find the gems that we never suspected they held – a deep and  beautiful journey to fully recover all of that we are.
