Episode 4: Hold Space for Healing

Our human capacity for denial is a survival mechanism that sometimes serves us well; holding unimaginable pain or seemingly unbearable things somewhere away from our hearts and minds until we are able to process them safely. And yet, unprocessed emotions also make us sick--physically and mentally ill.

In a world where we are taught to fear the "other" and in fact encouraged to do so by people who seek power and influence, our inability to recognize our shared humanity--to deny the human experience--is making us, our families, our communities, our country and the world very, very ill. 

This episode explores a simple, yet powerful practice that allows for healing to begin.
