EP30: What Are Feelings, Really? Part 2 in the Feelings February Series with Gail Brenner

In Part 2 of this month about feelings, I talk with my friend and colleague Gail Brenner about what feelings actually are.

That might sound like an odd topic. But have you ever stopped to really consider what feelings are? What they are made of?

We know how they feel. We know what our mind tells us about them. But if we take a look under the hood a bit more, what’s there?

Well, it’s good news. For me, looking more deeply at what feelings really are had a massive impact on me feeling less afraid of them.

I love the way Gail talks about this here in our conversation and in her book Suffering is Optional.  I know you’ll see things differently through this conversation.
