In this episode, we review ways in which fear can be not a stop sign, but an invitation into deeper practice. We need others to be the mirror with us, and liberation is in community and in relationship , so as we build a deeper relationship with each other, through fear, we discover that the system is not separate from us, but we uphold it with our culture. As we transform, the System will, too. This happens both in relationship and in our personal work. Our guest, invites us to show up more whole, by inviting fear to be a guide, embracing our awkward moments, and seeing reconciliation as the way.
