    • The Heart
      • Significance of the Heartbeat and sustainer of life
      • Symbolic home of the full range of our emotional experiences
    • Heartbreak
      • Emotionally painful, gut wrenching, devastating, debilitating
      • Can contribute to building up walls - emotionally, physically, behaviorally, relationally
        • Can prevent the connection we truly desire
      • Vulnerability is scary and risky; also opens us up to the ultimate experience of fulfillment and joy
    • Benefits of processing, rather than avoiding emotional experience
      • Identify the emotion
      • Avoid judging (labeling) your emotions as “bad” “wrong” or telling yourself “I should not be feeling this way”
      • Acknowledge when an emotional experience is uncomfortable
      • It is not necessarily the emotion that contributes to the distress, the pain, the feeling stuck or out of balance; it can also be the judgment we place that intensifies the pain, discomfort
    • Are you telling yourself stories?
      • Heart break?
      • Struggling to connect?
      • Stories you are starting to believe:
        • I’ll never find love
        • I’m not cut out for true love
        • I can’t make a relationship work
        • I’ll never get off this roller coaster
        • I’ll never be happy in this relationship
        • Maybe I don’t deserve love
        • Love is too hard
        • I should just give up on love
      • Heartbreak is difficult!! - In the moment, it feels like it will never end, will never get better.
    • Invitation to attend to your aspects - body, mind, soul and spirit in addition to the heart:
      • Reflect upon a previous emotional experience.
      • Check in with your emotional experience right now.
      • Envision that which your heart desires.
