The 12 Days of Conscious Holidays

The inspiration for today’s episode, and actually, for the next couple of episodes resulted from a conversation that I overheard at a bar over the weekend. In short, another patron said this about Thanksgiving: “It was rough, I went to Gloucester, Hamilton and then Rockport, but there were no fights, so that was a plus.”

On the opposite hand, I’m someone who really does love this season, and one thing I can appreciate about the holidays is that it is a time of a lot of emotions, a lot of pressure, and a lot of expectations. Sometimes when there can be that hype and anticipation, judgment, preconceived notion of how things are going to go, it just can create a lot of pressure and human beings don’t typically like pressure. As you may know, one of the ways we often resist pressure is avoidance. So for today’s episode, I want to share with you a nod to the 12 days of Christmas, the 12 days of conscious holiday planning as a way to practice doing something different and as a way to practice bringing more intentionality to your holidays to create the experience that you want to have.

Empathy for Change with Amy J. Wilson

I am so delighted and thrilled to have my esteemed friend, Amy J. Wilson here with us today. Amy is a change leader, community builder, movement maker, and an empathy advocate. She is the author of Empathy for Change: How to Build a More Understanding World, a guide to create positive, compassionate change where we work, live, and play. All of this guides our conversation as we cover the different types of empathy and why they are important, dismantling current power structures and rebuilding them with empathy at the core, prioritizing rest, and so much more. Being empathetic does not mean you lack power, and this episode is going to tell you why – enjoy!
