Reconnecting with Our Lives – Healing from Dissociation
Tara Brach writes:
Dissociation is the universal mechanism for pulling away from the pain of “too much.” While it’s necessary and natural for enduring certain situations, the ongoing habit of dissociation cuts us off from our full aliveness, creativity, and capacity for love. This talk explores the process by which we disconnect from our bodies and feelings – individually and collectively – and the practices that directly enable us to include the “unlived life” – the fear and shame, passion and loneliness – that we’ve pushed away. By including the raw energies we’ve been avoiding, we come home to a fullness that can embrace others and the whole of life.
