Becoming Comfortable with the Discomfort of Transitions

Listen to “Becoming Comfortable with the Discomfort of Transitions” on Spreaker.  

I can’t tell you how many times after I’ve thrown my hands up and said, “I’m done” things started to fall into place. Our guest, visual artist and best-selling author, Karen Kinney, shares, among other things, her wisdom with us on, “why it all falls into place in moments of surrender” from her latest bestseller Doorways to Transformation: Everyday Wisdom for the Creative Soul.

In our conversation, we talk about how change only happens when we dismantle fear, plus
• How to trust your inner authority and take radical responsibility,
• Why it is essential to abandon the search for how life works,
• Ways to create peace and or ‘settledness’ by learning to be okay with the unresolved,
And, so much more…
