    David Teitelman on Coping with Chronic Health Conditions and Old Emotional Wounds

    David Teitelman on Coping with Chronic Health Conditions and Old Emotional Wounds

    In this episode, David Teitelman discusses how mindfulness and self-compassion have helped him navigate chronic health conditions, body image issues, and old emotional wounds. David studied classical dance, rose in the corporate world, and cultivated self-criticism as a way of life. After being diagnosed with a progressive neuromuscular condition and finding his old approach unsustainable, he discovered that mindfulness and self-compassion provided a radical new way of looking at the world. David now shares these teachings with others as an authorized Mindful Self-Compassion teacher, a facilitator for Center for Mindful Self-Compassion’s Circles of Practice, and as the resident mindfulness teacher at Temple Micah in Denver, Colorado.
