BOO294 – ENCORE – BEING UNKIND TO MYSELF

How often are we hard on ourselves? How often do we deny our feelings or push through? What do we do when we REALLY see that we are being unkind? In this episode, we explore what to do when we observe harsh patterns.


BOO293- ENCORE – FINDING COMMUNITY

We are stronger when we work together. Reflections on finding community all around me.


BOO292 – ENCORE – LESSONS IN PROJECTION

We can learn about about ourselves when we pay attention to what bothers us about others.


BOO291- ENCORE – MISSING MOMENTS OF JOY

We cannot selectively numb our feelings. In other words, if you avoid suffering, you also miss out on joy. And when joy comes, many of us forbid it to linger, mentally rehearsing what could go wrong.

In this episode we will explore:

Why joy is considered a terrifying emotion
What helps us be more present to whatever shows up
How joy, health and gratitude are linked


BOO290 – ENCORE – DEFENSIVENESS

Defensiveness is a relational disease. How do we move beyond it to increase the quality of our relationships?


BOO289 – ENCORE – ENOUGHNESS

It is radical to imagine we don’t have to fix, acquire or change ourselves to access what Sonya Renee Taylor calls our innate enoughness.
