Tranquility Talk

Apr 22, 2022

This episode came at the perfect time as I've been on my "social lie detox" for about 5-6 months and was finding myself leaning into old patterns. Fortunately, this conversation was the perfect fix to get reinvigorated to continue with a practice that has been personally transformational. If you are someone who tries to "make everything right" and avoid rocking the boat, i think you will find this episode useful and inspiring. 

Highlights of our conversation:

  1. The disconnection between the theory of honesty and the day-to-day practice of it. 
  2. What we misunderstand about honesty. 
  3. How telling the truth about your relationship with alcohol can guide you into alignment.
