2020-01-26 Triggers As Teachers 4:34:52
We are all triggered at times by what people say or do, especially in relationships. Our triggers can teach us about ourselves, both what’s still unresolved, and what we need to work on. Our goal isn’t to root out all our triggers, but to use them as trail-heads for our own inner journeys that have long awaited us. Whether via the psychology path, especially when grieving the past, or the spiritual paths of mindfulness and lovingkindness, we’ll discover and cultivate practices and resources to support us. In this day, we’ll explore how to move from the suffering of reacting to the freedom of responding.

2018-01-06 Building and Rebuilding Trust - Part 2 2:09:56
Though we cannot always trust others, we can choose to act with trustworthiness toward others no matter how they treat us. As we practice unconditional trustworthiness we notice a wonderful result: We become less disappointed when others fail us. Our focus has shifted from ourselves as victims of others’ betrayals to our own commitment to trustworthiness. We still see that some people are not trustworthy and we feel sadness and compassion. But as long as we do not follow suit, we are not as hurt as we once were—and we like ourselves more. This workshop focuses not only on trust and trustworthiness in relationships but also in ourselves and in life's givens, what happens beyond our control, and the power of dharma in our lives. We learn to build trust as relationships begin and see it grow as we mature in our commitment. Trust can be broken in relationships. We can find ways to heal the wounds such betrayals cause.
