Emotions—especially the unwanted and dishonored ones—hold a tremendous amount of energy. We’ve all seen what happens when we repress or carelessly express them. With The Language of Emotions: What Your Feelings Are Trying to Tell You, empathy pioneer and researcher Karla McLaren shows you how to work with your emotions and access their genius in healthy and useful ways.
Your ability to work intelligently with your emotions is a key factor in determining your overall well-being. But how many of us were taught what to do in the face of overwhelming grief, seething anger, or paralyzing panic?
Through experiential exercises covering a full spectrum of feelings from anger, fear, and shame to jealousy, grief, joy, and more, you’ll discover how to work with your own and others’ emotions with fluency and expertise.
In the field of the sociology of emotions, researchers attempt to connect emotions across cultures to create a grand unified theory of emotion. In this book, Karla McLaren stands at the very center of the emotional realm itself and connects the emotions within and throughout the psyche in surprising — and imminently useful — new ways.
This is a much-needed resource filled with revolutionary teachings and breakthrough skills for cultivating a new and empowering relationship with all of your emotions.
