Based on her best-selling book Emotional Alchemy, this workshop explores Tara’s unique approach to healing emotions, which grew out of her years of meditation practice and work as a psychotherapist, and Daniel’s explorations in his books Emotional Intelligence and Destructive Emotions. Emotional Alchemy blends ancient and contemporary approaches for transforming dysfunctional emotional habits. In this innovative synthesis of neuroscience and Buddhist psychology — combining a new dimension of cognitive therapy with an investigative awareness and a reparative compassion–the Golemans help us explore the many ways we can transform emotional confusion into an insightful clarity, thereby releasing ourselves from powerful habits of reactivity. Mindfulness is an ancient awareness tool which, when integrated with these approaches, enhances their effectiveness and sustains their continuity, leading to a more genuine connection with ourselves and each other. This training can be continued in daily life or applied in one’s professional work; this workshop is helpful for health care professionals or anyone who wants an in-depth experience of this revolutionary approach.

Mindful habit change is an integration of mindfulness, cognitive neuroscience and cognitive emotional behavioral interventions developed by Tara Bennett-Goleman. To learn more about mindful habit change, see Mind Whispering: A New Map to Freedom from Self-Defeating Emotional Habits.
