When You Are Falling, Dive
June 9, 2014
Hosted by Cathy Roberts
How is it that some people turn adversity into fullness of life and others wither in bitterness and anger? With today’s guest, Mark Matousek, we will explore how people turn challenging situations and events into greater wisdom, love, compassion, and creativity. If others can do it, you can, too! When we are tossed into chaos, we can resist and deny what is happening for a while, but eventually, to restore inner peace and balance, we must accept what has happened, dig down deep to encounter grace, and learn to adapt. How do we live with physical or emotional pain? How do we make sense of the seemingly senseless tragedies in our personal and collective lives? While we may not have all the answers, we will explore the questions and gather inspiration in our conversation about Lessons in the Art of Living.
