5 Feelings in the Body, 4 Fears & Antidotes + Unwinding the Sex-Fear Tangle in Seattle

  • Sacred Embodiment Community 9414 Roosevelt Way Northeast Seattle, WA, 98115 United States (map)

Just like there are primary colors, there are also primary or core feelings. In this class you’ll expand your capacity to experience, notice, be in the presence of, express and receive the 5 core feelings: Mad, Glad, Sad, Scared and Sexual. Notice the distinction between experiencing and expressing. We’ll explore this, particularly noticing sensations in our bodies as clues to how we feel and what feelings are likely experienced by others. Everyone is unique, and there are common “feeling zones” in the body.

Fear is typically the most problematic feeling for people and for our society. There are 4 fears: Freeze, Flee, Faint and Fight. Fight is a form of fear that people often mistake for anger (which is why fear is actually the bigger issue). We’ll review these 4 fears in the body plus the 4 Fear Antidotes or Fear Melters(TM) for dissolving the stuckness that is so common in fear, liberating our aliveness, creativity and responsiveness in the moment.

We’ll also review the meaning of the 5 feelings – knowing what they mean often provides more mobilization of energy and/or relaxation into the experience, plus it helps clarify requests!

We’ll also explore the common tangle of sexual feelings, fear and anger. Sexual feelings are often charged in our culture, and most people don’t understand the distinction between experience and expression, which is useful for creating safety.
