This Episode is a beautiful healing conversation about how we must courageously move towards our own suffering with compassion in order to be free of it. We will discuss the life work of Dr. Edith Eva Edgar, a survivor of Auschwitz during the holocaust. I will describe how her book, “The Chosen,” caused me to further reflect on the universal principles found both in her journey and what I have seen in my individual growth and professional healing work with clients.

We will discuss how when “we deliberately turn towards suffering rather than averting our gaze,” we are able to finally witness our pain and process the stuck parts of our story. No healing journey is exactly the same, however, all require us to first take personal responsibility for own feelings. We must move out towards the process of avoiding those emotions, projecting our pain onto others, and to see our part in creating the dynamics that we create with our current relationships.
We will talk about how we often re-enact our trauma or continuously repeat the past story of pain in current relationships until we move to accept our story and process both the beliefs and emotions we have stored in both our bodies and in our minds. We will go over the skill of “notice, accept, check, and stay” as taught by Dr. Edgar and use this skill to walk through a self compassion and self healing meditation at the end of this episode. I hope you will have the courage to join me for this conversation of how move toward your intention of healing and growth.
