@Katiecooperlawton best of luck to you both! My wife and I spent the last year navigating fertility clinics in rural NY (i realize that's not the same as AL tho) Happy to talk more with you about our experience if it would be helpful 😊
@Mark_Prellberg It's been on my list but I haven't yet. Have you had a chance to listen? If so, what did you think of it?
@ambientnaturecultures mh issues included anxiety and depression mostly, which i thankfully dealt with through therapy, meditation, yoga, and a strong support system.
regarding the book -- we are waiting to hear back from publishers. i'll know more in the next month or so and will likely post on here & my website (which i will link to here once it's updated).
@ambientnaturecultures I was an instructor in communication & rhetoric. I turned down my PhD offers this spring (w/mixed feelings) for several reasons: my mental health, personal/family goals, timing, and to pursue more public-facing work, service, and writing that is accessible to those outside the academy. I am currently co-authoring a book on how mindfulness can help people see whiteness (& all its issues) in everyday communication, both in how we consume and produce messages (esp. images).
@FuchsiaShock and not to mention these groups aren't mutually exclusive. politics love creating false binaries to further divide us.
Hi everyone! I'm Liz and new to this site/community. I'm hoping to connect with others and overcome my anxiety of posting/writing online. I was raised Episcopalian by parents who were atheists and my wife is ex-evangelical. I have so many questions about God, mindfulness, science, and emotional intelligence. I recently left the academic world and I write a lot about whiteness (especially the white savior complex), social media, and LGBTQ+ issues. Nice to meet ya'll! #introduction
