    #10: Navigating Internal Process in Relationship with Reva Wild

    #10: Navigating Internal Process in Relationship with Reva Wild

    Reva Wild takes us into the depths of internal processes by becoming present with the care behind our more turbulent emotions. She reflects on the use of 'core transformation’ process to excavate our deepest needs, and create space to give that to ourselves. We delve into how to create cohesion in relationships instead of creating an 'end product' of our relationships. She touches on the roots of that product driven mindset and how that impacts our ability to learn, play and be present with what is here, hindering us from leveraging our life's possibility.  In this episode we go deeper into re-familiarizing ourselves with ‘play’ as a pivotal component to learning, recognizing impact of our actions and realigning ourselves with our creative pursuits.
