    Coping with the Tragedies of Today's World (+ Making Change)

    Coping with the Tragedies of Today's World (+ Making Change)

    Are you feeling the weight of the seemingly endless and senseless tragedies of today’s world? Are you wanting to stay informed and contribute to change but find it hard to not disconnect after hearing about yet another mass shooting? In this episode, Janice shares about the grief, despair, anger, and rage (amidst moments of levity and joy) she’s been experiencing these days and what’s helped her to cope and cultivate enough resilience to stay engaged without becoming overwhelmed (understanding that it’s always a WIP!). She also shares about why issues of social justice matter so deeply to her, including how her past struggles shaped her perspectives on what doing the “self-work” and coming back into wholeness really means.
    CW: Topics of intergenerational, complex, and structural trauma are discussed in this episode as well as brief mentions of some of the recent tragic happenings in the world. Please take care of yourself as you listen in.

Talking about some REAL stuff with comfort and thoughtfulness

The Soul’s Work podcast takes an approach to some challenging subjects that immediately puts me at ease. I don’t sense a lot of judgment, just honest sharing, suggestions, guidance, and most of all, hope that any listener is getting a positive impact from each episode. The soul’s work indeed.
