Student Talks: 8/19/2022 - Key Lesson: The imagined time of "rest" we seek is, in fact, the same as an invisible burr beneath our saddle, as whatever form of comfort it is that still eludes us doesn't exist without some corresponding sense of discomfort that keeps spurring us on.

Topic: The Power to Make Discouraging Thoughts and Feelings Disappear for Good! (7/29/20 Classroom Talk)
Classroom Talk: 7/29/2020 - The ache of any dark moment -- of any discouraging thought or feeling that wants to convince us we'll never be free... is simply a lie.
