Our emotions are not who we are, they are as temporary as clouds in the sky, learning to see them this way is a practice we can all benefit from.
When we define ourselves according to our emotions we limit and delude ourselves. Kaitlyn offers up practices we can use to relax with seeing our full emotional landscape as part of being human, rather than being who we are.

We tend to get a lot wrong when it comes to grief, but when we let it run a natural course it's incredibly healing.
Grief is an important part of life, important in that it’s a natural process that helps us adapt to change. And yet it’s something we don’t always like to discuss, and some of us may not have experienced.

Disentangling ourselves from negative, unhelpful patterns of thought isn't easy. The practice of the Three Difficulties are an excellent tool to help us form new, healthier and more helpful patterns. Also, cats.
Using the story of her cat on a leash, Kaitlyn shares her thoughts on how to use the three difficulties to get disentangled from habitual (and unhelpful) patterns of thinking.

Last week's podcast! I am back with Everything is Workable but head down a lot because editing 'Friends We Haven't Met'. I promise future episodes will be more...structured than this one.
Returning from a month-long break while she ran a crowdfunding campaign, Kaitlyn explores some thoughts and contemplations she’s had about generosity and gratitude.

$2 shy of being %50 funded and nearly halfway through the campaign! Help tip the balance by becoming a patron!
On May 1st I launched a crowdfunding page via Publishizer, a fabulous funding platform created just for authors.

Emptiness is not nothingness. Emptiness is the interconnectedness of all things, of the intrinsic way we are all linked. No one and nothing exists independently of anything else. To understand this is to understand the importance of compassion, of how that which benefits others benefits us.
A light touch introduction into emptiness teachings and how understanding the fundamental ambiguity of the universe, and ourselves, open us to great compassion. Resources and recommendations for further study: ‘Essence of the Heart Sutra’ by HHDL, the most astounding fact: https://vimeo.com/38101676 , Thich Nhat Hanh on emptiness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-PWjt04g3M

This week's episode of Everything is Workable! :D
Kaitlyn talks through Metta practice and then looks at how such a practice changes our experience by changing how we think about others.

This week's podcast is a little crash course on The Four Noble Truths
An exploration of the truth of suffering and how learning to overcome attachment, or to practice non-attachment, is the antidote.

One week left to become a Patron!

Thank you to everyone who has contributed thus far, including those who have shared the campaign link so much.
I’d say it’s hard to believe this campaign launched only 23 days ago but that simply wouldn’t be true. Crowdfunding takes a lot of time and energy. It feels as though I've been campaigning for...

Got a cut in October. Fantastic job and great value. Plus they didn't fuss about my being a woman.

One of the greatest museums I've ever been to. Incredibly well laid out, wonderful exhibitions of art and a fantastic narrative of the history of mental health from diagnosis to treatment to recovery. Very diverse and captivating. Well worth a visit.

I was able to book onto a course very last minute. They were extremely accommodating and the course itself was exactly what I needed. I found Alex to be a fun instructor and he was even able to provide person specific support to those of us in attendance. I would certainly use Highlander again for future training.
