Tushita Retreat Center (Girona)

Working with Disturbing Emotions
Cultivar el bienestar emocional

April 26-28

Taught in English with Spanish translation

Emotional intelligence can be summarized as knowing oneself better, being more sensitive to others and being more skilled in managing emotions and the different situations to which they respond, and it is from there that we can cultivate well-being and emotional balance.

Being away from emotional balance usually involves either not allowing oneself to experience the feelings and emotions that arise, denying, avoiding or suppressing them, or being so hooked and identified with them that they completely trap us, sometimes to the point of consuming us. On the contrary, emotional balance consists of allowing ourselves to feel what arises but without it overwhelming us, and in learning to accept and manage our emotions to live them more freely without being trapped and obsessed.

In this course we will see tools that allow us to improve emotional well-being by responding to circumstances in a more adapted and less automatic way. This will allow us, for example, to better manage impulses, regulate our own moods, prevent anxiety from interfering with our rational faculties, tolerate pressures and frustrations, empathize and trust others, persevere in our efforts despite possible frustrations, accentuate our ability to work as a team, adopt an empathetic and social attitude that gives us greater possibilities for personal development, or participate, deliberate and live with others from a harmonious environment. In addition, it leads to better social intelligence and an improvement in relationships with oneself and those closest to you.
