When stressed, we often react with looping fear-thoughts, feelings and behaviors that cause harm to ourselves and/or others. This talk offers three interrelated strategies that can serve us when we’re triggered by stress, and help us find our way back to our natural wisdom, empathy and wholeness of being. By de-conditioning habitual reactivity, we are increasingly able to respond to our life circumstances in ways that serve healing and awakening.
I’ve been going to codependent meetings 10 years & practicing responding. My SO still knows how to push my buttons enough to make me lose my patience & react but I can recognize when I do & do better next time. Practicing mindfulness helps a great deal.
