That's So Retrograde

"Deep in Retrograde"

“We can have nice things, and be conscious.” – That's So Retrograde

Mercury may not be in retrograde, but we sure are feeling all the retrograde vibes as Elizabeth Kott and Stephanie Simbari (of the hit podcast That’s So Retrograde) join the show! The ladies dive deep and share very personal struggles with sudden career change, finding identity, and how comedic “ego” is in the spiritual community. They are honest, sincere, and hilarious of course.
“Life is just a spiritual practice, it doesn’t have to look spiritual. Meditate, take a bath, something spiritual is standing in the middle of the market and watching people live.” – Stephanie Simbari

PERSONAL PRACTICE

Ritual

  • Gather friends and ask “How are you” – but “How are you really”
  • Pull a card from the Wild Unknown Deck
  • Vision board / create together.

SHOW NOTES

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
