Letting Grow

Feb 23, 2021

Confession time: I don’t actually do well with change or transitions. (That’s part of the reason I’m spending so much time on how to navigate them better.) I recorded this episode from a hotel room in Houston the night before I flew out to Canada and a day or two before Texas – where I was staying – thawed out from our historic ice storm. So this episode ended up being more personal than usual, and it’s also got more background noise than usual.

In it, I talked about two ways to make friends with change in general: by noticing how we relate to it in daily life and by using meditation practice to focus on our relationship to change.

Also, I mention a few people’s work in the episode: Marie Kondo (Google her if you’re unfamiliar with her slightly crazy but magical approach to tidying); Mind Beyond Death by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche; and Elaine Aron and her work on highly sensitive people. I incorrectly stated that about 5-10% of the population is highly sensitive; the actual figure is about 20%. You can find her work here:
