Eighth episode of the Underbelly Project podcast. Acceptance.  For today’s episode, I spoke with my yoga instructor, Justine Kaufmann.  For some reason, I thought acceptance would be easy. I’m pretty laid back, aren’t I? Well, this was quite a challenge. Fun, but a challenge!:


What we talked about:

  • First, self-acceptance is your birthright!
  • Second,  it may not ever be easy to move into acceptance, but with practice it becomes more natural.

Third, acceptance becomes “home” for you. Where you feel your best; where you move toward naturally.

Justine shared her journey into a world of self-acceptance and what a pleasure it was to go there with her.


Notes:

  • I mentioned this book: The Drama of the Gifted Child by Alice Miller.
  • I mentioned an article about the 7 countries that have the best Coronavirus outcomes. to be clear, I think it’s a feminine energy or spirit that’s at an imbalance in some areas of our lives. And, you know, in other areas, there’s a masculine imbalance. I think an acceptance of both and a bit of rebalancing is in order.

Onward to Trust! Look for a couple blog posts, the Monday morning newsletter,  and a podcast episode with Deidre Mclaughlin, Registered Clinical Counselor and sexual health educator.

The Underbelly Project: CrossFit (or Yoga!) for your emotional strength and flexibility. If you’re not afraid to get dusty and maybe shed a few tears together, join me and let’s get emotionally strong!

And please, if you know anyone who might like to share this journey, share this project. Excited to stay in the arena with you.
