Navigating Transitions—What to Do When Change Stirs up Anxiety, Uncertainty, or Confusion

Episode Notes

What do you do when life feels disorienting or uncertain? Maybe a relationship ends, you change jobs, or your children no longer need you in the same way.

Change is disorienting. We don't always recognize the value in slowing down to process these in between places-when we've left something (or someone) behind but aren't yet sure what the future is going to look like.

This next series is all about navigating transitions. I've invited spiritual director, Rowena Day, on to discuss. . .

1. Normalizing liminal spaces
2. Do we ever "arrive" at stability?
3. Fascinating research on the pain of uncertainty
4. The 3 stages of transitions
5. The value in endings
6. How our bodies can help us
