Episode 20 - Spacing
Episode 20 is the season one finale on HWF.  Nate x Joey finish with self-investment and how it shows up in our spaces. What spaces have we created for ourselves and what stops us from inviting others in? When do we feel overwhelmed and how do our spaces reflect that physically? Why don't we feel like we are worth spending time, energy, effort, and money on? Do we live here or are we stuck between elsewhere and nowhere? Time to tidy up our rooms and our lives. Let's do it together.

Episode 19 - Abandonment
Episode 19 is here.  Nate x Joey tackle abandonment. Why do people leave us? Why do we feel so much of the loss? What is it all about when it's about us. Join as we do a big reframe around abandonment, catering to your inner child, and doing the heavy lifting of coming to terms with deeply held self-beliefs. There is healing on the other side of this pain. Let's go there together.  Connect with Nate Robinson for life and relationship coaching - @the.nate.robinson or thenaterobinson.com Connect with Joey Oteng for social justice education and workshops/trainings - @drjotengii or linktr.ee/joteng

Episode 18 - Mirroring
Episode 18 has arrived. Nate and Joey talk through copycat emotions, empathy, sympathy, and internalizing feelings. Can we create healthy boundaries around what others are feeling and preserve our own? How do we take ownership of what we feel? Deciding when, where, and how we'll do feeling can be a brave way to honor ourselves and others in their biggest emotions. Are we looking for someone to vent, listen, offer solutions, or take an action? Let's go there together.  Connect with Nate Robinson for life and relationship coaching - @the.nate.robinson or thenaterobinson.com Connect with Joey Oteng for social justice education and workshops/trainings - @drjotengii or linktr.ee/joteng

Episode 17 - Chosen Family
Episode 17 is here. Nate and Joey talk through the remarkable feelings that come with unconditional love and chosen family. Making lasting connections in life, especially adulthood, can be challenging. Who is going to stick around? Who is going to be temporary? What is our relationship with the idea of family? We can define what family means to us, and be open to adding people, in addition to transforming difficult traditional familial relationships of obligation into those of continuous choice.

Episode 16 - Righteousness and Wrongs
Episode 16 is Nate and Joey doing what they do best in talking about how they feel in a world of polarization, needing to be right, and shaming to win. What happens if we choose to give apologies freely? Can we accept being wrong? What do we have to lose? How do we learn to apologize to ourselves when others may not offer apologies? Can we heal even without the acknowledgement of those who have hurt us? Can we as a country tell the truth about ourselves and hold ourselves accountable? Let's talk through it together.  Connect with Nate Robinson for life and relationship coaching - @the.nate.robinson or thenaterobinson.com Connect with Joey Oteng for social justice education and workshops/trainings - @drjotengii or linktr.ee/joteng

Life can be heavy, how do we heal to not be crushed by it.  Connect with Nate Robinson for life and relationship coaching - @the.nate.robinson or thenaterobinson.com Connect with Joey Oteng for social justice education and workshops/trainings - @drjotengii or linktr.ee/joteng

What do we do with our emotions when they are unrelenting? The spectrum of empathy to apathy is real and we're all somewhere on it. What does it mean to go through instead of around our feelings? Let's work through this time together.
