If so, it’s easy to understand why because they can cause quite a bit of suffering. But the suffering is, for the most part, unrelated to the emotions themselves. It’s possible, and liberating, to feel fear, anger, guilt, and shame with little to no suffering.
The first and very significant step is to get to know these emotions in depth. Ask, open up, and explore to understand them. What is their source? Who and what are they coming to protect or trying to serve? What do they actually want from us and is there a way to give it to them with less suffering on our part?
We invite you to join Arnina Kashtan for an insightful and interactive workshop, Sunday, August 29th, to take the first step towards the surprising possibility of living with these “difficult” emotions without the all too familiar suffering associated with them by courageously exploring their lesser-known world, uncovering their hidden intentions, and discovering a path to liberation from their oppressive grasp.
This workshop is being offered as a free introduction to The Compass Online Course. “The Compass” is Arnina Kashtan’s unique methodology which synthesizes practices from Nonviolent Communication, The Work of Byron Katie, and Inner Child work with Arnina’s own discoveries, insights, and tools to support you in moving beyond old patterns of guilt, shame, anger, and fear…into freedom and an untapped celebration of who you really are.
“I offer you a deep, radical process of truth, compassion, and courage, to uncover the essence of your being while transforming your personal, familial, and professional relationships in unprecedented ways.” ~ Arnina Kashtan

“My sister Arnina puts together so much — systemic perspective, compassion for trauma, deep understanding about how humans function, and more — into a comprehensive, deep, and fully accessible framework that supports dramatic shifts in the experience of being alive. I highly recommend it to anyone who has a passion for freedom.” ~ Miki Kashtan
“The compass course is vital to anyone serious about transcending trauma and/or becoming certified as a trainer of nonviolent communication (NVC).” ~ Monica Espinoza
“Arnina’s depth, skills, sense of humor, and ability to articulate so many nuances so clearly are a gift for anyone seeking greater inner peace, freedom, and a kinder relationship with oneself and others.” ~ Kristi Dee Doden
“Integrating the principles and practices of The Compass into my daily life has increased my capacity to be the change I want to see in the world. My heart is full of gratitude for the incredibly valuable and deeply meaningful gifts that Arnina shares with such grace and compassion and I’m grateful also for the community that participates in and enhances the learning. What a nourishing experience of shared humanity The Compass has and continues to be.” ~ Heather Austin
“Having more clarity on the personal, familial, and social contracts I unconsciously accepted, helps me feel more welcoming and curious towards myself and others. More often than before, I feel less impatient with myself, less resentful towards others, and more empowered to act from choice and mutual care.” ~ Fernanda Cecin
“Arnina builds a space where I feel at home to share personal, parental, and relational matters. The way she unravels the themes the participants bring, and the compassionate light she sheds on them, boost my inner power and my capacity to be compassionate towards myself and others. She promotes an awareness that helps me operate beyond the right/wrong paradigm and to be more and more in choice of my actions.” ~ Grace Deckers
“I feel more free, more alive, more motivated and empowered.” ~ Claudia Sánchez
“I appreciate the way individual experiences are used to create a structure for teaching universally. I am newly aware of choices there are in how I speak to myself, and even though it is a momentous challenge to change, I am hopeful in going forward.” ~ Marge Margulies
“I so appreciate what I got to know about myself and my core beliefs. I needed to learn to accept, to understand, to be, and to love. Paradoxically, it is so freeing! My core beliefs are no longer my enemies, more like old (and sometimes dear) friends.” ~ Paula Rossi
