In This Interview, Jillian Pransky and I Discuss...

  • Her book, Deep Listening: A Healing Practice to Calm Your Body, Clear Your Mind and Open Your Heart
  • How she used to believe anxiety and depression was a choice
  • Learning to be with the bad wolf
  • Befriending her bad wolf
  • That not everything can be fixed
  • When surrender is needed
  • Not being able to fix some way someone has treated us
  • Restorative Yoga
  • Paying attention to our body and mind so that we're aware of how we shut down and open up and to be with it with openness
  • Deep listening to yourself can leave you more hard and cutoff or open and tender
  • The tension in our body signifying the stress response
  • Paying attention long enough that it softens and shifts
  • Judging the tension we find in our bodies
  • Getting curious about the tension we find, breathing into it
  • Asking "How am I still guarding myself when I don't have to be?" during Restorative Yoga
  • "Doing Less"
  • How the busier we are the less we have to feel
  • Listening is the act of allowing
  • Love is the act of allowing
  • Allowing yourself to be supported even when you're active
  • That which is regular is way better than that which is a lot
  • A little bit all the time re-wires us
  • How exhausting it is to be somewhere we're not
  • Our thoughts are like social media
  • Forward thinking and past thinking after present moment being
  • Letting go vs Letting be
  • Analogy of salt in water: shot glass vs mason jar
  • "The practice isn't about learning how to stay here but learning how to come back."
