    Episode 271: Loss of Reference Points

    In this talk, Reggie speaks to the groundlessness that we experience when situations don’t fit into the known territory of ego. In such moments, strong feelings of anxiety, fear, and ambiguity might arise. Instead trying to secure territory, he encourages us to turn toward the feelings and open to the uncertainty.
