This is our Going Deep episode all about spirituality! We’ve been around so many beautiful teachers in this past month (and in life!) and the way that they express spirituality is such a beautiful testament to their life experience and the work that they’ve done.
We both have such different experiences with spirituality so today we really want to speak about our own personal journeys with spirituality. Everyone’s experience with spirituality is so vastly different — from the different ways to practice it, experience with it, to doing the work and discovering the journey. Though we may not be experts on the topic, we’re excited to share with you all our own personal experiences. We speak about our own pre-conceived notions around how spirituality (and how these notions have changed over time), what discovering spirituality has meant for us, small awakenings vs. big awakenings, the different ways to experience the spirit, and our tips for those struggling with their spirituality or spirituality journey.
