Where do you go to slow down, listen to, reflect on and discuss the deeper questions of life?
Each season will consist of short reflective episodes on the season theme so you can listen and let yourself be drawn into deeper inquiry, presence and stillness.
You'll come away with a deeper connection to your own wisdom and knowing, greater comfort with being in a space of not knowing, more inspired and open to new ideas and different ways of seeing the world and being in the world, and more ready to experience the joy of creative flow.
Take the conversation further by joining us in The Contemplative Edge Community, where there will be additional private podcasts and resources to help you deepen your reflective and contemplative practice and how it informs your work: https://community.contemplative-edge.com
