The Gifts of Gentle Acceptance

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In accepting more of our authentic selves we will be better able to accept and understand more in others. This is a fun and informative self-reflection learning! Together through self-reflection, sharing, and discussion we will learn more about our emotional vocabularies, how our emotions are data, how our emotions need recognition especially the "messy & difficult" ones. This session will discuss the gifts of "gentle emotional acceptance as the first layer to an authentic, creative, meaningful happiness. By accepting our emotions with compassion, openness and curiosity we will make better choices of value-connected actions in our work and in our lives", Dr. Susan David. We will learn about ourselves and each other with breakouts to share in small groups or partners. We will work with the R.A.I.N. model of emotional recognition. We will look at and explore The Gottman Institute Feeling Wheel to expand emotional vocabulary, Dr. David's pyramid of emotional needs, and finally practice using the the phrase "I feel . . ." rather than "I am . . ."; "I feel sad" rather than "I am sad." and dig into the subtleties of how words matter.
