Tara Bennett-Goleman and Daniel Goleman integrate the new science of habit change with Eastern and Western psychologies, neuroscience, and principles adapted from the horse-whispering tradition. Discover your unique path to repattern old habits of thinking, feeling, acting, and interacting. Those emotional habits may include unhealthy aversions and attachments, avoidance of emotional connection, anxious relationship preoccupations, entitled control, or passive surrender.|
In this groundbreaking program, you explore how to:
- Nurture inner capacities that awaken your awareness from the trance of emotional habit and patterns of disconnection
- Cultivate an attuned, discerning, and mindful overseer to make clearer choices
- Ground yourself in a wise heart instead of being driven by reactivity
- Identify emotional triggers and dysfunctional habits in yourself and in your relationships
- Build a genuine and secure foundation for all of your connections
- Begin to build new positive patterns
The gentle path of awakening presented in this workshop offers a new lens for understanding the underlying patterns that play out in your life, your relationships, and our world.
