Why You're Never Too Old for a Coming of Age Story - An Adult Conversation with YA Author Bill Konigsberg
Increasing our capacity for the “unpleasant” feelings is one of the main goals we have here at RocketFeather. If we can be with those difficult feelings and over time, stop judging ourselves for having them, we are well on our way to being responsive humans rather than reactive ones. That means we can be there for each other instead of just worrying about ourselves.
So thank you all for hanging in here with us as we grow in empathy and resilience and love. Olivia Lee is such a great model for this kind of strength and we feel so privileged to talk with her and count her as a friend.
We hope this healing conversation will continue in the RocketFeather Community Lab, so reach out with your questions and answers and let’s help each other through this time - let’s do that and more. Let’s help each other redefine who we get to be on the other end of it. What are you leaving behind and what are you bringing with you? We want to know.
Guest: Dr. Christine P. Stewart, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, Department of Nutrition at UC Davis
Director, Institute for Global Nutrition
As a health researcher, mom, & world traveler, Christine Stewart has an excellent view of the delicate web of health services around the world, and of how communities deal with adverse circumstances. Join us in conversation about how to take responsibility for ourselves and each other during crisis, what makes us resilient, and how we can find opportunities for growth and connection during these turbulent times.
A nutritional epidemiologist, Dr. Stewart wants us to be sure not to confuse her with someone who studies infectious diseases. But this smart, informed, scientist, shares with us her views on how to ride out a pandemic, how to redirect focus on to what’s important and how to stay in community while remaining more than 6 feet apart.
