Session 1 | Laying The Groundwork

It is hard when we don’t know what to do with what we feel or someone else feels. In this session Chris Coursey lays the groundwork for how to process emotions or help someone else, including the introduction of a new resource to help. You will also discover tips on what not to do and learn the brain science that helps us understand why. This session will include group discussion.

Session 2 | Feeling, Sharing and Quieting my Emotions

Being able to manage our own emotions is essential if we want to help someone else. In this session Chris Coursey will lead you through a tool to help you tune into and process feelings so you can gain peace and be best positioned to engage someone else who is struggling. This session will provide a practice opportunity as well as group discussion.

Session 3 | Leading Others through the Feel, Share, Quiet Process

In this session Chris and Jen Coursey will demonstrate how to help someone else process through emotions like disappointment or frustration. You will then have an opportunity to practice with the tool provided and to discuss the process with others.
