Sometimes it’s all too much, good and bad.
A big part of your work is helping people cultivate their authentic selves. Do you have advice for anyone trying to do this?
I definitely have a method. Broadly speaking, it’s through deep listening to ourselves. For example, I’m a big believer in imagination exercises, to wake up the part of the brain that’s curious and creative and unafraid of taking risks. To do this, I might say: get into a position of silence and have a conversation with yourself in your 80s. Start asking her questions about her life. What does she say? Paint me a picture of her life. Where is she, and what has she done? Visualizing your future can help you get clarity.
