Most of us grapple with our emotions and with the understanding that our feelings and our reactions are transient. We often get bogged down or overwhelmed and find it hard to simply ‘detach’. In this talk, we will learn how to balance the spiritual teachings of yoga with those of depth psychotherapy as we move towards feeling centred and whole. Learning to recognise when our ‘ego’ is dictating terms and blocking our greater sense of Soul will help us navigate and ride the waves of our emotions while recognising the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.
