Emotional Work

Emotions are the key to better self-understanding. They form the bridge between thinking and body. Inhibited, suppressed or withheld emotions limit our aliveness and can cause distress and disease.

In emotional work, we aim at the core of each feeling and strive for its clear and full experience in the moment. In this core experience, patterns resolve, which we had created not to feel these feelings. Consequently, the power, which was held in these suppressed feelings, become free and serve our aliveness.

Emotional work has its place between therapeutic talk and body work and uses elements from both spheres. It is also an important part of breath therapy, as in reverse mindfulness on breathing is benefitial for emotional work.
