Our guest in the following two episodes is Cris Beasley, an author, podcaster, ex AI startup founder and healing practitioner who created the Love Lock card deck to help people explore and work with difficult emotions. We asked Cris some of the questions that we often get from our listeners and course participants: how to access the repressed emotions in the body, what are some of the helpful techniques and tools to do it, and how to integrate these emotions into our lives in a healthy way.

This episode is in two parts. In Part 1 we talk about the most common 4 emotional responses in difficult situations, the transformative power of breathwork, and other tools to access difficult emotions.

In Part 2 we talk about the role of emotional health in society and why it is crucial for gaining self-sovereignty, as well as the current position of mainstream science on energy work and healing practices.

Remember that healing often needs to get a little bit worse before it gets better. - @CrystalDBeasley Click To Tweet
