Carl Jung Quote & A Few Words About It Relating To Yoga

"The foundation of all mental illness is the unwillingness to experience legitimate pain."  - Carl Jung

Something yoga practice can bring to our experience is the opportunity to be with and observe sensation, including discomfort.  A slowed-down asana practice, as slow as easy pose or savasana, provides time to feel.

Isn't there an AA/12-Step saying about it being important to "deal with your feelings?"
