Transforming Emotional Reactivity into Compassion through Mindfulness 
.
Date:     Sat, Aug 21
Time:     9:00 to 10:30 a.m.
Cost:     Free
.
When we feel strong emotions such as hurt, fear, or anger, we are likely to not only feel the feelings but also react in defensive ways.  The lower centers of our brains drive these reactions.  Fortunately, we have higher centers in the frontal cortex which we can engage to circumvent these reactions.  Mindfulness helps us step back and do this.  However, we can take one more step through mindfulness:  we can deliberately bring awareness to the tender feelings that are being defended against and transform those into compassion for ourselves or others.  We will explore this in the upcoming session.
