    Winter Blues and How to Move Through Them

    Winter Blues and How to Move Through Them

    In this episode of The Wanderer's Guide to Cosmic Fabulosity, DW explores the winter blues. Looking at both seasonal affective disorder(SAD) as well as the sadness that might come with the holidays, we take a wander through a clinical lens as well as a very human lens.

    As always, taking a lighter look at a heavier topic is the mode of operation here. DW cites some wisdom brought to us by scholarly literature as well as personal experience, client impressions, etc.

    If you or someone you know suffers from depression and in particular depression associated with this time of year with the shorter days and/or the sadness that might come with the holiday season, be sure and pass this episode along. Below are some of the articles from which DW gleaned some of this information.

    As always, we wish you the best for this holiday season and for the coming winter months. Be sure and seek support if you find this time of year particularly difficult. Remind yourself that it is a normal human experience and everything you need is inside of you.

    Loving Kindness Meditation

    Loving Kindness Meditation

    This is a stand-alone loving kindness meditation brought to you by the Wanderers Guide to Cosmic Fabulosity. Although there are many formats for a loving kindness meditation, this short, abbreviated version can be done daily to lay the foundation for this type of meditation practice and can be built upon as your practice grows..

    It is important to engage this practice with a gentle heart as sometimes it is difficult to send loving energy toward ourselves as well as send loving energy directed outward to others. Be sure to do this meditation in a comfortable setting and when you can be undisturbed.

    Interview with Barrett Self

    On this episode of The Wanderer's Guide to Cosmic Fabulosity, I have the great pleasure of interviewing Barrett Self.  We have the most fantastic and expansive chat about loneliness that I am sure you will find both enlightening and thought provoking. Barrett truly brings a spacious and unique perspective to connecting with our spiritual center as well as having super insight on the balance required for finding wellbeing  through  spiritual, psychological and emotional lenses.

    I hope you will join us for this one of a kind discussion.

    Barrett Self is a commissioned meditation teacher with an emphasis on guiding people back to their true nature. He holds certificates in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and mindfulness and later this year will be publishing his first book, 'Directly Home: A Simple Guide Back to the Spiritual You.'

    Looking for an enlightened approach to well-being? Check out all of Barrett's offerings at his website, exhalenow.co
