Tuesday May 24, 7 pm, at UBC Robson Square, Room C400
Which is more important: Grasping or releasing? Life is a dance between the two, but popular culture - and popular therapies - often emphasize attainment rather than acceptance, striving rather than giving up. An enormous amount of human distress arises from the inability to release and accept. In this edition of our monthly PsychologySalon series at UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, we consider the value of giving up.
We'll talk about the range of life problems caused by not letting go, and the variety of life situations where letting go is essential and adaptive. Along the way we’ll touch on grief, aging, codependency, relationships, addictions, and obsessions. We’ll also discuss some of the strategies involved in relaxing, opening our grasping hands, and allowing reality to be reality, whether we like it or not.
