Hey everyone! It's spring (in the Northern hemnisphere)!

This episode feels so joyful and spring-like, it seemed like perfect timing for this week. My guest is Anjuli Sherin is a therapist and writer specialising in trauma recovery and the cultivation of joy. Here is some of what we talked about:

  • The cycle of suffering and the circle of resilience
  • Anjuli's path towards joy and what she learned along the way
  • Limitations of the "Western mental health mindset"
  • Building exquisite self-care as well as an intersectional approach wellness, joy and resilience
