In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • The process of undoing tying our worth to our productivity and our accomplishments vs. living in the present and loving ourselves unconditionally.
  • Ideas on why traveling to somewhere like India or Nepal is such a life-changing experience for so many people and how experiencing a place that is immersed in ritual can alter our perspective of everyday life and how we experience it.
  • How we avoid looking at and holding a relationship with death in much of western culture and how that can often keep us in a place of fear of the unknown.
  • Ideas on how we can begin to become more comfortable with death and suffering, and how that process can actually help us accept the full range of our own emotions and the reality of life and death.
  • How Moun’s ability to step up and act as the main caretaker for her mother after her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis came from being able to hold the duality of the experience of life as being both full of so much beauty and so much challenge.
  • Ways to move yourself through fearful moments, and how to engage with the full spectrum range of our emotions as human beings, and integrate them and bring them into acceptance within us.
  • And so much more on healing and staying open to all that life has to offer us!
