creating a different world

A solo catch-up episode with podcast host Rachel, up close and personal, talking about adapting to the world we now find ourselves living in, how our internal life can expand as our external one shrinks and how we might imagine a whole new normal.

  • What I have learnt about being anti-racist
  • Understanding what white privilege is
  • Tone policing and white fragility
  • How white silence is racism
  • Layers of prejudice and how the focus on BLM may also help fight ageism
  • Making the most of our heart beats
  • Expanding our mental and emotional world despite the restrictions on our physical world
  • 2020 – the year to reassess everything
  • Looking inside for our inner sense of strength and knowledge
  • Morning pages and how powerful that can be
  • Taking time to think about what you want going forward
