Over the last couple of months our group has been exploring the Gate of Emotion and Gate of Dialog. Emotions raw and spoken can be very powerful, fearful, liberating, fascinating , scary, exciting, shameful, encouraging, and destructive if not checked on. We are learning how the 4 Magic “E”s, Experience, Explore, Express and Empower can lead us to understand our feelings and where they are coming from. Truly experiencing what we are feeling by saying, yelling, screaming them out loud in a private place we are able to experience them in order to find a way to explore where they are coming from. That ways we can better express them to empower us. We are learning through the Gate of Dialog how to do this by committing to opening up a true dialog with ourselves and others.
