EMA – Positively Not

May 10, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm


How to Say No Graciously in Any Situation

In this Satsang*, Howard E. Richmond, M.D. shows us with storytelling and humor why it is difficult for most people to say no. He teaches us the common emotions that compromise our capacity to say no – like anger, guilt and fear – and how these emotions can be consciously manipulated so we can say no when we need to, respectfully and graciously.

Dr. H and his Transformational Sound Healers will then lead us with live music in a sound healing experience that gently deepens the power of the work of EMA (i.e., letting go of conditioned judgments and hidden emotions) through music, guided imagery and meditation.

Discover the highest truth about emotions, reality and perception. Experience what it’s like to get an “emotional tune-up” and release unwanted tension in body and mind where emotions and negative beliefs accumulate.

After the guided imagery, some participants may want to volunteer and share a “story” or challenge with Dr. H in order to practice using these tools to say no in otherwise challenging situations. Whether sharing or just observing this process unfold, you will gain valuable insights.

Improve the quality of your relationships, increase your capacity to be more fully present and bring more joy into your life. Like martial arts, this skill set needs to be practiced again and again so it becomes reflexive and automatic. Learn with a black belt and receive the gift of waging inner peace.

Please bring a mat, pillow or blanket to ensure your comfort lying on the floor. Chairs available if preferred.
