The Four Parts of an Emotional State
Tuesday, October 14, 12 p.m. MST
Brian O’Connor, BA ’77, MA ’79, presenting:
"The Four Parts of an Emotional State"
Through meditation we see that all of experience, including emotional states, is made up of causes and conditions. For the purpose of learning how to work with these states it is helpful to think of emotional energy as consisting of four parts: thoughts, physical experience, breath, and emotional behavior. What intervention would look like, from the perspective of each part, is the subject of this webinar.
From the Naropa Institute, Brian O’Connor was awarded a BA in Buddhist Studies in 1977. He was a member of the first graduating class. He completed a Masters in Buddhist & Western Psychology from Naropa in 1979.
Brian then became employed by the U.C.H.S.C, Dept. of Psychiatry, Addiction Research & Treatment Services, where he worked for eighteen years.
