When you’re down, self-care is more important than ever. That’s why, given all the world is going through right now, this show is about self-care in times of grief, loss and suffering. Cause let’s face it… there’s a lot of that around us.
I begin by sharing a very targeted essay I wrote not long after my late daughter Teal’s death, called The Very Temporary Nature of Suffering. Because, yes, there will be suffering. But it’s not a permanent condition. Even when it feels like it!
In this show, I also share ten critical parts of really taking deep loving care of yourself when you’re experiencing grief and loss. In it, I share some things I learned after Teal’s death. But also some critical self-care resources you may not know about , including two of my favorite books on the topic.
May this show find you where you are… and bring you comfort and healing.
Sent with love.
