Amazing

Such an amazing podcast. Especially the episode on COVID, the “Difficult Conversations during Challenging Times,” explores the range of emotions most of us feeling during the pandemic. Very validating.

Difficult Conversations During Challenging Times

Such a wonderful podcast! We can be grateful AND grieving at the same time during this shutdown of missing human touch and lacking in-person emotional connection with our extended community.. Thank you Jila for bringing up the piece of, can we allow for each other's pain during this challenging time? Can we see each other in our family who is sequestered at home? Can you see me? Can we see pain as the portal into a better understanding of each other? We ask this of our clients, and we now are able to lean into this with ourselves.Thank you Jila, Naomi, and Deb!
