For Building Your Emotional Language
Why We Gotta Feel the Feels. Building the Language of Our Emotional World
In this video Dr. Kate introduces us the incredible opportunities of being in relationship with all of the possible emotions we are capable of feeling. We have a greater capacity to weather the storms of life AND to create our rainbows on the other side when we have a personal relationship with all of our feelings.
Feeling feelings is a core part of resiliency and personal empowerment. For those of us on a healing journey, in order to move from surviving to recovering and through to thriving, one needs to purposefully confront some hard, scary emotions along the way. It is O.K. to experience and explore the hard emotions; it is not helpful to avoid or deny them. Doing so inhibits our innate power to rise above them. This is also true in keeping emotional balance in daily life. A healthily functioning brain is continually self-regulating and moving us into and out of different states.
A Self-Havening Guided Meditation for Greeting all Feelings as Friends
Join Dr. Kate in a guided meditation to move into deeper relationship with feelings in order to empower your emotional world and enhance your resilience.
In difficult moments we are socialized as humans to numb out from the feelings. Unfortunately, this numbing out weakens our ability to learn from our emotions and soothe the distress that is rising in the present moment. When we are unable to be in relationship with our feelings and our body we are unable to self-soothe and instead grow further away from our Self. This can cause a nasty cycle of avoidance or even pull us into using harmful external substances to avoid the screaming data of our emotional brain. Yes, screaming. Remember that our amygdala will get louder and louder if we continually ignore her. When she starts sending us data it’s because she thinks our safety is threatened. Let’s befriend our feelings and grow stronger together.

As humans, we are naturally moving in and out of different brainwave states every day, and much of that is driven by emotions. This is a sign of a healthily functioning brain. There is a good argument to be made for intentionally experiencing different emotions, whether you might consider them to be “good” or “bad.”Read More

Why do we worry? So often my patients will tell me that worry is dumb, and that there is no need for it. Actually, we do need to worry, but we need to put it into an appropriate context. It is important to go back to the beginning of the worry process and notice the “Why” of it.Read More
