Your loved one died? Oh, let me give you some advice… You should be crying more. You should not be crying so much. You should not be back at work. You should get on with your life. You should not still be feeling this sad. You should, should, should…. When it comes to grief we are bombarded with conflicting messages, everyone’s opinion, and frankly a whole lot of should. However, in the words of Nietzsche — 'You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.’

There are times in life when we run - from our pain, the reality of life, our relationships, the gaps inside of our bodies and spirits. Some of us run because we have old traumas that continue to arise. Some of us run because we were never taught to feel our scary emotions, so we run because life feels overwhelming.
When we run, we often use substances and things outside of ourselves to numb, push down and hide our pain. These substances can be as benign as watching too much Netflix, or as dangerous as overeating, drinking, and using drugs. Anything outside ourselves can be used as a way to avoid the darkness inside. I call this dancing around the void. We become Void Dancers because it is too scary to face what is lurking in our shadows.
Ariela joins Nancy McKay as she tells her story. Nancy is sober and a survivor of cancer and she has hit rock bottom and faced herself and the gaping holes inside. Nancy now teaches other women how to survive and thrive from addictions and unhealthy behaviors.

Tired, anxious, stressed, and burnt out? These are just a few words to describe the overwhelm that women are feeling today. The burnout is real and is amplified in the pandemic. Because most of us are stressed by our life circumstances and the current state of the world, it’s more difficult and takes more energy to access the emotional regulation, the much-needed self-care, and soul centering we need in order to create a life we don’t need to escape from. Nature excursions are just some of the small ways we can keep ourselves afloat and find our center.
In this podcast, Ariela talks to Jamie Blackburn, of the Inner Map Project, to explore what it means to connect with nature to find your passion, love, and reclaim energy.
