Composting Emotional Afflictions Into the Soil of Wellbeing
Three-day Retreat | April 2013
Why is it that sincere people who practice a spiritual path continue to struggle year after year with long-standing negative emotional reactions? Although longing to be happy, to enjoy ease and well-being, why – in spite of our best efforts – do we continue to be driven by strong habit energies that lead to unhealthy choices, self-sabotaging behaviors, and emotional afflictions?
In this Talk Series from a three-day silent retreat with students in Tampa, Florida, Fred teaches that before healthy personal transformation can occur, we need to look deeply into the nature of the unconscious historical habit energies that drive our experiences in dysfunctional ways. True healing means becoming intimate with that illusive part of us that believes itself to be isolated and vulnerable, that fights against the way things are, and that runs away from pain by grasping for security and momentary pleasures, but in the end is never satisfied.
