Jeff Foster: The Courage to Love
Jeff Foster is a spiritual teacher who draws upon his own awakening experience after decades of struggle with illness and depression. With Sounds True, Jeff has published several books and audios, including The Way of Rest and Sacred as You Are. Producer Kriste Peoples chose this week's excerpt from Jeff's audio offering The Courage to Love for its fascinating and incisive discussion of the difference between emotions and feelings. Kriste notes, "By stripping away word associations that take us out of the present and instead delving into the physical experience of the moment—what [Jeff] calls 'diving into the body'—we grant ourselves access to the 'real, raw, real-time experience, and that frees us from the grip of old stories.'" In this way, Jeff asserts we can reframe our most deeply held beliefs and truly see which serve us and which can be left behind.
