In this podcast, we visit the topic of turning and returning: how one turns away from darker points in our lives.
The Hebrew word for “repentance” is t’shuvah, which literally means to turn (around). It implies an act of will, and also the notion of not simply turning, but REturning to a better state.
In this episode, we hear stories that open some of those darker spaces, and the ways that people might respond to that darkness. Philip Rose, our guest, will share a personal story that he uses in his transformational work; Titi Ogunnaike will share a cautionary children’s tale from the Yoruba that might remind some of us of the Brothers Grimm; and I will share a story of a very dark place from the canon of the Baal Shem Tov.
We’ll also enjoy a surprise personal snippet from Phil about being audacious.
