|Embracing Demons introduces the student to the ancient practice of nonresistance as a powerful way to transcend struggle, resolve even chronic problems, and realize greater peace in an often chaotic world. The main idea of this offering is that, while our natural tendency is to move away from pain, there is a transforming power in leaning into painful situations and "embracing the demon"—the very thing that appears to be set against us—and in reclaiming responsibility for our role in demonizing others through projection, blame, scapegoating, and in general "making wrong. Embracing Demons helps the student to identify personal habits of resistance, long-held woundings, and areas of self-judgment—and to embrace these in order to transcend "triggers" and discover the joy of moving with adverse conditions rather than against them, opening a way to escape the undertow of daily strife and tap the potential for best outcomes in any situation.
