How to understand your emotions and what they're telling you with Karla McLaren
In today’s episode, I speak with Karla Mclaren, M.Ed. an award-winning author, educator, social science researcher, empathy expert, and workplace consultant. Her work revalues even the most “negative” emotions and opens startling new pathways into self-awareness, effective communication, and healthy empathy.
Her applied work, Dynamic Emotional Integration®, is a groundbreaking process that reveals the genius and healing power within the emotional realm.
She is the author of many books, including The Power of Emotions at Work, Embracing Anxiety, and The Language of Emotions: What Your Feelings Are Trying to Tell You, and she’s the developer of the online learning site EmpathyAcademy.org.
We dive into the following and so much more:
✅ Why understanding our emotions is so important
✅ Why so many people do not understand their emotions
✅ Why “Restoring the intellect to it’s rightful position”
✅ In her book “The Language of Emotions”, we talk about the need for a balanced psyche, and incorporating the elements of air, earth, water and fire.
✅ Some of the dominant emotions she speaks about in her work, specifically, anger, guilt & shame, fear and then boredom - and how to move through them.
✅ What happens when someone represses their anger? And why she says that dealing with your emotions (like anger) should be a restorative act.
It was a pure delight to connect with Karla and I think you’ll enjoy this conversation tremendously.
