🎉 Special Monday Announcement!

Published 2 months ago • 1 min read

Hey Reader,

I know it’s Monday and I don’t usually send emails on these days, but I wanted to let you know that registration is now open for our May Inner Work Cohort!

In short, here’s who this cohort is for and what it's all about:

This cohort is for you if you feel like you’re just going through the motions and want to deepen your experience of meaning and presence in your life.

Over the course of 30 days, we’ll:

  • identify and engage a daily practice that brings together who we are and our sense of who we’re becoming,
  • share and interact with a supportive cohort community of fellow practitioners,
  • come together for nine workshops, including on Internal Family Systems and how to navigate conflict in a more life-honoring way,
  • and experiment with new inner work practices that can open us to a deeper connection to our inner life and personal story.

Here’s what a few of our recent cohort alumni have said about their experiences:

If you’re reading this and thinking “meh, this doesn’t sound quite right for me,” no worries and no pressure at all to register! I want to make sure this feels like a fit for you and your story.

But if this does sound like something that can support you, I invite you to sign up and join us in May. 🙂

And in one of the first responses I received, R.G. Shore, author of The Ocean Inside Me: A Spiritual Memoir on Healing Racial Trauma, shared an approach to connection that challenged me and gave me pause. He said this: “Connection, for me, is much more about...

Happy Wednesday Reader! This week, I’ve been really challenged by a question from Dr. Cornel West, and I’d like to pass the question on to you: What does it mean to live in the midst of the catastrophic? For me, especially this past month, the word “catastrophic” brings to mind one place in particular: Gaza. When I try to process what’s happening in Gaza, I find my chest tightening and my stomach twisting. My thoughts become jumbled and I feel like I’m sinking into a deep, vacuous pit of...

Happy Wednesday Reader! One of my favorite children’s books is What Do You Do with a Problem? by Kobi Yamada and Mae Besom. It’s a beautiful little story about a young kiddo who has a problem – and has no idea what to do with it. The kiddo tries to ignore it, hide from it, shoo it away, but the problem just seems to get bigger. And the bigger it gets, the more the kiddo worries, which only makes it grow bigger! Sound familiar? The resolution to the story is that our young protagonist finally...
