Episode 67 - All Ears On Deck: A SimpleTool for Listening In Times of Sorrow

2:35 A reflective listening example

3:04 It’s okay to be skeptical

5:23 Why “feeling heard” is so important

7:10 “I will not try to change you”.

8:44 Help us “catch up” to ourselves

April 11, 2022

“Just moving on '' after the worst of the pandemic poses major risks to our quality of life and capacity to connect.  When you have the courage to slow down and honor what you just went through, you can retrieve and re-integrate the parts of you that got “stuck” in the stressors of the last two years.

5:42 The high costs of just moving on

6:05 Story by Rabbi Bernath about beauty in a metro station

7:00 Shouldn’t beauty arrest us no matter what we are doing?

Episode 61 - So What Exactly Do I Do When I’m Feeling Overwhelmed?

March 21, 2022
