Emotions link our bodies, our thoughts, and our experiences at the deepest level. And the capacity to be intimate with our emotions, teaches Robert Augustus Masters, is the core skill for creating fulfilling relationships and living with awareness, love, and integrity.
With Emotional Intimacy, this respected therapist and author invites us to explore: - How to create a safe space for working with our emotions - The ways that we numb our unwanted feelings, and how to revive them and welcome them back - How to identify our emotions and experience them skillfully - Resolving and healing from old emotional wounds - Steps for bringing greater intimacy into our relationships - In-depth guidance for those facing depression and loneliness - Why blowing steam can often make us feel worse, and healthier options for emotional catharsis - Navigating activity and stimulus overload, a collective emotional pandemic of our times - Individual chapters for engaging with fear, joy, jealousy, shame, grief, awe, and the full spectrum of our emotions .
There are no negative or unwholesome emotions only harmful things we do with them. Through real life examples, exercises, and many useful insights, Masters provides here a lucid guide for reclaiming our emotions, holding them skillfully, and allowing them to resonate in ourselves and with others more deeply and richly.
