Divorce is deeply painful. We may experience different emotions ranging from hurt or anger, shame or disappointment, fear or bitterness. In order to heal as we go through this transition, it is vital that we not judge or avoid our feelings but rather accept that they simply are.
In our quick fix society we see the devastation of avoiding our feelings with pharmaceutical drugs and personal addictions. Emotional pain seems too hard to handle so we stuff it, numb it, work harder, play harder, shop more, binge on Netflix reruns, etc. Yet no matter where we go, or how fast we try to get there, we can't outrun our feelings. Wherever we go, there we are...with our pain.
The only way out is through. Karen and Carrie share gentle, practical, and doable strategies for feeling and processing painful emotions in a way that enables us to move through them and engage in essential conversations and decisions about the future with calm and clarity. Learn the practice of creating space through breath that provides a path back to your center - who you are and want to be in all your interactions.
