Learn why the suffering we have endured in 2020 might be the prelude to growth and transformation in the future.
Today I’m sharing with you an interview from the Good Grief Radio Show where host Cheryl Jones talked to me about my new book The Journey from Ego to Soul. We have a wonderful conversation discussing the transformation that is possible after everything falls apart in life and the lessons that we can learn when we make this inward, spiritual journey. Check out Cheryl’s radio show at the link:

- Why 2020 is a ripe time for self-exploration and growth
- Why we can’t skip over the suffering of life
- We can’t “fix” other people – we can only support their journey
- The challenge of COVID is to learn to share love when we can’t be in the same physical space
