TEACHER: Stephanie DeBou
MEDITATION THEME: Nap time is over
Steph: As young children, we began to experience the world through our emotional bodies in the way of BIG feelings. They came out in tears, in outbursts, in tantrums. But they did come out. As we grew up, it’s likely we were taught and learned to control these emotions in some ways, but in many ways our Western culture took that too far; teaching us to suppress our emotions, which as we are starting to learn, isn’t very good for our well being. As adults, we’ve become adept at finding ways to numb, control, restrict or restrain our emotions. Tonight we will tap into our bodies, where emotions are stored, explore sensations, and wake our frozen emotional selves up from the slumber of a long winters’ nap.
