EP303: A coaching session about energy and overwhelm

In this episode of Changeable, I have a conversation with Emily about energy and overwhelm.

Emily says she swings from periods of coasting (which feels lazy to her) and pushing, which feels harsh and exhausting. 

She also talks about the feeling of being constantly “on” in her work. 

We explore how much is truly effortless and how these habitual tugs on her energy are reminders that she’s not resting in effortless awareness of what’s arising–instead, “Emily” is very much in the picture believing a lot of rigid rules and responsibilities she made up for herself. 

Many people will be able to relate to this conversation.


I would like to invite you to join me for a live 2-day event this summer in Plymouth, Michigan!

Over two days, July 19 and 20th, we’ll explore the absolute freedom of living in reality. We’ll settle into what is, deeply feeling the difference between that and the imaginary worlds constantly created in thought.

These live events are amazing opportunities to gather together with a group of likeminded people, see a lot in a short period of time, and form connections and have fun together.
