So excited to have Vanessa and Dené from the podcast Cheaper Than Therapy on this week! Dené is an Associate Psychotherapist in Los Angeles, a Registered Yoga Teacher and Mindfulness Coach. She specializes in offering tools for moving through anxiety, understanding our addictive patterns and communicating more effectively in our relationships. Vanessa is a Psychotherapist, Mindfulness + Codependency Coach. She brings her passion for Depth, Buddhist, and Yoga Psychology into her own life as well as in her work with her clients. She loves connecting with people while helping them connect to themselves, which usually includes helping them discover who that Self really is. Join us for a truth-filled conversation around dropping the therapy stigma, the finite nature of grief and death, and dealing with the anxieties and systems that have developed from the present state of the world.
In the current state of the world there is so much information coming at us, but our opinions and perspectives are not safe to share. They are dividing us and inflicting hatred amongst our peers and within our community. Why are we not able to to recognize that two truths can exist at the same time? Right now, it is more important than ever to be having hard conversations with love, and being open to other peoples perspectives, and meeting them where they are at. Can you be open to the possibility that what you think right now isn't true?
