Speaking at the Wisdom 2.0 conference, Dr Shefali Tsabary tells us why we must redefine our relationship with pain. Drawing from her experience as a clinical psychologist, she recounts how she once viewed pain as an intrinsic failure on her part but now understands its transformational power.
“I believe that there is nothing more pivotal in the journey of conscious parenting or conscious living than the understanding, integration and evolution of pain,” she says as she brings home the wisdom that our attempts to escape from pain, and protect ourselves and our loved ones from it, is the root cause of our suffering.
This talk on pain as a portal to consciousness has the power to trigger a deep transformation in your life, provided you really get the essence.
Dr Shefali Tsabary is a clinical psychologist and author of The Conscious Parent.
