hello,

What do you really yearn for? According to Steven Hayes and Joseph Ciarrochi, humans have 6 core yearnings that guide our behavior towards or away from psychological flexibility.

In this episode, you will explore:

  • Our natural yearnings, how they shape our behaviors and psychological reflexes, and the insight required to align our actions with our core values.
  • The role of agency and the desire for purpose in our lives
  • Our inherent desire to feel a broad spectrum of emotions, even those perceived as negative
  • The importance of staying present and grounded as a foundation for taking purposive, value-driven steps in our lives.

Listen to hear how these yearnings can get misdirected and how to harness them to “feel better,” live better, and connect.
