It's the weekend edition of the Big Self School, a segment we call the Learning Curve, where Shelley and Chad discuss the big and small questions they're having.
This week Shelley is thinking about the senseless killing of Ahmaud Arbery, and dealing with people's emotional responses on a number of different levels. She shares some aspirational ideas about how we can "grow ourselves up."
Chad is thinking about how to develop the "inner citadel" and not take things so personally, whether for good or bad. He's also been learning about other methods for achieving deeper calm than merely through meditation (as powerful as it is), and he asks the question: Should we aspire to completely let go of anger? Or does it really have a place in our higher level responses?
These are the questions we're hitting at the end of another long week of quarantine. Thanks for spending a few moments of your weekend with us.
