Healing Thru The Dark Depression Group Read Only

  1. 1. Depression and Anxiety Support Group Healing thru the Dark: Wisdom of Grief, Fear and Despair “Get a grip! Stay in charge! Get a hold of yourself!” “1000 mg of Prozac!” “Get a boob job! Retail therapy! Go on a cruise!” When we are deluged by dark emotions, our culture either medicates us, or asks us to distract ourselves to eradicate emotional suffering. And just as we are learning to become numb, we are asked to feel, express and release our emotions. Contradictions abound. Dark emotions are symptoms; messages from the unconscious that are transmitted to us. If interpreted accurately, they can be conduits of healing and growth. The emotions are neither good nor bad. There is a good embedded in every bad emotion, but we can only reach the good by experiencing the bad, not by avoiding it. Dark emotions hide a spiritual essence, and by learning how to attend to, befriend, and surrender to the energies of grief, fear and despair we approach the gateway of transformation and transcendence. These dark emotions are transmuted into gratitude, faith and joy. Come and join a small group of people for 8 weeks and share your dark emotions. Learn to grow thru and with them, healing yourself by transcending them thru the use of creative endeavors - dreams, music, writing and art.
