How the Mind Can Heal the Heart (In-person)

September 30, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT


How the Mind Can Heal the Heart
(Tara Bennett-Goleman & Daniel Goleman)

Explore a transformative map of distorted perceptions and symbolic meaning hidden within emotional and cognitive patterns like perfectionism and self-sacrifice. These distortions filter our view rather than letting us see ourselves and others as we genuinely are. 

Reparative interventions can allow the opportunity for insight and connection rather than confusion and reactivity. Repatterning emotional habits and calming our reactivity can clarify our awareness. 

By challenging distorted assumptions and training the mind to expand its scope of awareness, we can refine the mind’s precision to reach beyond the limiting ways we perceive. We can see ourselves as we genuinely are instead of through these distorting filters.  

Applying principles & practices from Emotional Alchemy, cognitive neuroscience and neuroplasticity, emotional intelligence, and an expanded awareness can awaken the part of the mind that sees more clearly and increase empathic understanding as a default mode 

 Based on Tara Bennett-Goleman’s book Emotional Alchemy and Daniel Goleman’s work on emotional intelligence, this approach integrates methods from East and West that can help relationships of all kinds, from partnerships, to family and friends, to the workplace, and in leadership.  Coaches, therapists – anyone interested in transforming emotions might be interested in this innovative integration.

This is an in-person event.

Tara Bennett-Goleman M.A., is the author of the NY Times best-seller Emotional Alchemy and of Mind Whispering. An educator and psychotherapist, she brings practices and perspectives from Eastern and Western psychologies to repattern modes that separate into patterns that connect.

Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., is a science journalist best known for his books on emotional intelligence and on meditation. In these workshops he tours us through relevant neuroscience, looking at how the brain can repattern habits, and how the brain’s circuitry for social connection can lead to increase closeness.
