Podcast: Why the Resistance Needs Therapy


If you’ve been feeling anxious, overwhelmed, shut down, angry, hurt, or scared since the new administration took over, you’re not alone. Earlier this year, I sat down with my friend and colleague Lily Sloane to talk about self-care and mindful activism in the age of Trump. Listen below:

"It’s not just about self-care and our personal well-being. It’s a matter of political strategy. We can’t be effective, and we can’t really build movements that win, when we’re caught up in reacting to these underlying traumas that we haven’t dealt with. Doing this personal work is a political act of building healthy movements."
