Encore: The Dark Night of the Soul
July 6, 2016
Hosted by Karen Leavitt
I am thrilled to be joined by Michael Mirdad. Michael talks about when events occur in our lives that we don't recognize or understand. These events situations, whether large or small may show up once, or repeat, and can seemingly ripple into every facet of our lives. When this happens we are left shaking our heads, asking ourselves why? Wondering why me? We begin self talk, rationalizing, trying to make sense of this. We try day after day to rise above, and no matter what we do nothing goes right. Really? Why cant I get a break? We can often experience, fatigue, emptiness, sadness, a sense of depression and disorientation. This is what Michael calls the Dark Night of the Soul. We talk about what it is, how to recognize this in our lives He shares the five stages that occur during this process. Why this process is even necessary for us to go through, what to do when you're experiencing it. How long does this last? Is there anything we can do to help ease this?
