Kathleen R. Brennan, LCPC What are your passions? Evan Center, MS, LCPC shares her thoughts on engaging your passions in your everyday. Psychotherapist, business coach, mother, and co-founder of an independent high school, Evan is a go-getter, yet somehow manages to stay super grounded — perhaps because she has chosen to live in a mountain town where she skis, bikes, hikes, rafts, canoes, gathers huckleberries, goes to the farmers market, and carves out time to sketch floor plans, house renovation ideas, and interior design concepts keeping her mind and body happy.

26: Meditation: Welcoming Change

Kathleen R. Brennan, LCPC Change is constant and to resist change often requires a lot of energy. Loosening up that focus and grip of control allows for us to encounter life with more calm. Moving with the waves of change, rather than against them, are two very different pictures. Welcoming change can be similar to moving with and riding the wave of change with which we are presented. We can make adjustments as we tune into the movement and nuances of the wave until our feet land on the ground again.

17: Meditation: In Times of Uncertainty

This guided meditation focuses on encountering the unknown. Waiting on the "what comes next" can be uncomfortable, painful, overwhelming or be experienced as even dangerous or unsafe.  Letting goof how something needs to turn out or a vision of how it has to be can offer space for something new. Uncertainty can involve fear, anxiety, hope, waiting for answers or hoping for a particular outcome. Thinking about the future picture again and again will not change things. It can actually get in the way of problem solving, using resources that can useful or connecting with the very people who can offer support, advice or moments in relationship.
