    Messy Metamorphosis with Samantha Lawrence

    Messy Metamorphosis with Samantha Lawrence

    This episode is inspired by the book The Hungry Caterpillar (thanks, Eric Carle!)

    In this episode, Samantha gets real about her transition into post-pandemic life. She points to the transitional void as we see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. She illuminates the nonlinearity of healing as a tool that might help us more gently move through this transition - just like the sticky metamorphosis of the butterfly.
