Zen Emergency Kit

Here are your three discussions; you can break them up immediately or over the course of three days or three weeks. A good idea is to take notes during the sessions and then journal after you've had time to think about the topics discussed and ideas presented. Enjoy! Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions.

I have given you both Apple and Spotify choices. 

There may be commercials in the beginning; I have no way fo editing those out.

A zen approach to difficult conversations can help you to step into your passion and truth, with dignity and a sense of purpose.


1. Are you accepted for who you are even in disagreement, from your closer circle?

2. What did the five-year-old you enjoy? 

3. Can you reflect back and see where you might have been navigating life through the lens of trauma, neglect, sadness or anger?
