Episode Description

Emotions are “energy in motion” and much more of a potent force in our lives than most people understand. When we leave them unexpressed, stuffed, unacknowledged, or numb them out, emotions have to go somewhere so lie in wait, latent, for the opportunity while often growing bigger and more intense. And then they can unexpectedly erupt in our interactions with others or even make us sick. Learning where emotions originate in our body and how to use them to get present to what we feel and desire is a life-long, enriching opportunity. And when we get better at recognizing and addressing our own emotions and those in others, we become much more adept at communication and improve our overall health.
