Description of Being Present with Pain
As long as we’re alive, we experience pain. Unfortunately, many of our hard-wired responses to both physical and emotional pain multiply our miseries, trapping us in viscous cycles of suffering. This class will focus on ways to be present with pain that interrupt these cycles, freeing us from unnecessary suffering. Therapeutic presence arises from a clinician and clients’ increased willingness to relate to pain with flexibility versus control and avoidance.
