Compassionate Inquiry

Emotional Health with Akari

Will you be surprised if you hear that you are never angry about what you think you are angry about?

Will you be confused if your emotions bring you back to the memory state?

When was the last time you were held unconditionally to safely experience your emotions?


Behavioural approach vs. relational approach.


Emotions are to be held, not talked over.

How we see ourselves and the world is based on many layers of experiences, perceptions, feelings, emotions, beliefs, and how we respond. These could be the underlying causes of many kinds of unwellness.

We all have emotions, and it is normal and healthy to feel them, but if it feels your emotions are owning you, it might be a sign that you would want to seek support so that you can shine physically, emotionally, and socially.

At this time, Compassionate Inquiry (CI) is not offered as a stand alone treatment. CI is incorporated within the Chinese Medicine  appointment to further help body-mind-spirit integration.

For those who are TCM professionals (and students) and needing mentorship or peer support, please visit "Mentorship" page for details. We provide mentorship for inner cultivation, based on the Compassionate Inquiry approach.
