This is a seasonal October episode that serves as a year in review of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt in a particular year. 24 began with a reminder to not just intellectualize and conceptualize my ideas around pleasure, but to work them out in real life in an embodied way.

And this AMAZING conversation we shared together!
Sharing raw emotions around how messy an ending can be & giving context for why we can’t just tell people to “move on to the next thing” without supporting them with space to grieve the thing they are leaving behind.
