When you experience awe, surprise, contemplation – you might say something takes your breath away. In today’s podcast we explore the role of wonder in spirituality. What happens as you breathe in new ideas and breathe out that which must be released? Considering your life with a child-like perspective may be just what you need to re-set as you forge ahead into this new year. And when you pause long enough to clear your mind, and spend time in contemplation, you pave the way for more depth in your spirituality.

Welcome to 2021! And in this New Year, we begin a new theme for the next four weeks. Wonder – how to open up the sense of possibilities in your relationships, your body, your spirituality and your craft. In today’s episode, your relationships offer some insights into wonder. If you want it to grow, spend time listening to or watching those around you. What can you do to have more meaningful and challenging conversations? And when you slow down, you have a chance to relate to those closest to you in a more thoughtful manner. Having this sense of wonder about those in your world will change your outlook – and offer you a better glimpse into what matters most to you.
Uncertainty has a tendency to show up in your workplace – especially when you don’t know what the future holds for your company or your craft. In our podcast, we explore how you might boost your resilience now. First, take care of yourself and keep your resume up to date. You might be able to tolerate uncertainty more effectively if you search for other opportunities. If you’re a worrier, schedule a time to do just that to make room for more emotional health. And accept that job uncertainty is part of life – whether or not there’s a pandemic. You’re normal, this is happening to you and everyone you know. You will get through this.
As we explore uncertainty in every area of life, one place it shows up frequently – your spirituality. Your faith traditions may ebb and flow when feelings of uncertainty overwhelm you. When you choose to embrace the unknown, you’re invited to welcome change and reframe whatever is uncertain as an adventure. This week we encourage you to take small steps when considering something new. How about developing a change toolkit to help you move through uncertainty? And through it all, know that you are not alone. Holding on to spiritual traditions offers a roadmap for whatever it is you may face next.
Throughout this holiday season, you may be feeling a great deal of uncertainty in your heart and mind. In our podcast today, we explore how uncertainty impacts your body. What would happen if you scheduled a time to worry, rather than dwelling on your uncertainty? If you connect with others and do what you enjoy, your brain is free to return to the present moment. And choosing what to focus on steers you away from what’s out of your control. That’s when you harness the power to manage what is in your control. May you be encouraged!
Facing uncertainty is a part of our lives – especially in this season of COVID 19. We begin a new series of podcasts today highlighting how uncertainty impacts your relationships, your body, spirituality and your craft. In your relationships, uncertainty might cause you to put up a wall and push away. How might you overcome this need to protect yourself? We explore how to share your fears. What would happen if you could give without getting anything in return? And consider how you want to be treated and do the same. You can embrace what you can control. Enjoy!
When you face conflict in your workplace, what do you do? If you can get to the place where you see conflict as a natural part of working with others, you have the chance for peace. We begin by asking, what do you really want? Once you know that, what are you and the other going to do about it? If your goal is to listen to and learn about the other, you’re ready to create a strategy. Since you can’t control the outcome, your process is critical. That’s when you discover what’s important to both of you so that you can negotiate. When you reach an agreement, commit to each other so that you have real resolution.
