In this time of great uncertainty, Martine Cannon’s voice and wisdom provide a sense of calm and compassion. In this episode, she and I engage in an “emergent” conversation, meaning we surrender the illusion of control and allow what is to be present. Martine encourages us to live our life from this place of surrender because it is in giving up control that clarity about right action shines through.
This is not a passive stance. Rather, it is an active choice to let go and be still enough to realize what’s best in this moment…for ourselves, for others, for the planet. Martine and I share some of our favorite ways of accessing the deep inner knowing that resides within all of us, and we give some steps people can take to bring more peace and calm in this time of overwhelming struggle with COVID-19.
