Who wouldn't like to feel as happy at your next gathering as this young woman?
Well, when all goes well, we are this happy.
We just had our annual neighborhood holiday party. We have great neighbors who like to spend time together. In the cold, dark Oregon winter, we love the glow of a large gathering. We like easy, so the potluck is pretty open and we get a delightful variety of sides, mains and desserts--unlike the potluck my dad went to in the 1930's when 13 families all brought beans. And yet happy people make for happy bellies.
But family and work gatherings can often include subtle and not so subtle conflicts. And that brings things that are hard to swallow.
There is a way to use your body to find and move from a grounded, stable and uniquely you posture or alignment that will help you have a much more enjoyable time.
It involves what I call "emotional Aikido" in which a force which comes toward you is redirected smoothly without harm to you or the creator of the force.
When an emotional force comes at us our bodies naturally do one of two things.
They aren't separate, although often we get stuck in one or the other reaction.
The beauty of "emotional aikido" is that we can use the effective combination of both to redirect the force with ease and elegance.
