The Emotional Life of Pain
Theresa Oswald, MD
October 21, 2018
“Ours is a culture that views pain as a physical condition and encourages us to cure it by swallowing a pill. Even though most of us know pain also has a deeper, emotional connection, we fail to recognize that treating sorrow and emotional torment is as urgent as treating physical pain.”
Everyone has experienced some form of pain in their life. Since pain is uncomfortable, we tend to avoid looking at its complex emotional and social aspects. Our modern culture assures us that everything can be fixed by taking a pill, while the root causes of pain remain unexamined and long-term solutions go unexplored.
In this livestream, Dr. Theresa Oswald draws from the wisdom of yoga and ayurveda in offering practical solutions for managing pain. By better understanding the relationship between pain and emotions, we can form an integrated strategy to transcend pain and restore our overall health and well-being, while helping those we love who might also be living with pain.
Learn to unlock your healing potential with comprehensive, holistic approaches to managing and resolving pain.
