Whether we’re at home or at work, life gets overwhelming. This often leads us into regular behaviors of coping that often aren’t very effective (e.g., distraction, wasting time, lashing out, shutting down, drinking, smoking, etc...). In this course we’ll be focusing on the tools to be fully present in situations or with people that have previously led us into difficult emotions. We’ll explore individual stress factors and explore ways that we can stay with the intensity of feelings that come up during overwhelming situations by learning to recognize and sit with them, rather than reacting on automatic pilot or needing to get rid of these feelings.
