    Ep 60 Sitting in the Mud of Transition ~ Indigo Melrose

    Ep 60 Sitting in the Mud of Transition ~ Indigo Melrose

    Are you navigating a time of transition? Perhaps you’re ending a relationship or are in a new one, perhaps you’re coming to terms with a life changing diagnosis, preparing for motherhood, or starting a new career… You might find your sense of self is shifting and things suddenly feel uncertain and overwhelming. Whatever the circumstances, transition is something we all know intimately and must dance with constantly throughout our lives.
    To be in transition is to be in a liminal space. It’s the messy, murky unknown we encounter when we’ve left behind what’s familiar and are on the precipice of something new. Navigating times of transition can be an uncomfortable and confusing experience. Yet times of transition are also rites of passage that hold enormous potential for growth and self-discovery.

    Join us as we explore the messiness and transformational potential of transitions big and small.

    We chat about:
    How Indigo came to choose “transition” as the topic for her doctorate and why this topic is close to our heartsTransitions as an invitation to learn to be with discomfort and “not knowing”Navigating the transition to private practice as therapists Transitional places as sacred spaces Finding practices that support and hold you in times of transition Learning to slow down and be open to what is emerging How times of transition can invite encounters with SoulNavigating grief and loss in times of transition … and so much more!
