Episode details

In this 10th episode, we focus on our response to the burgeoning COVID-19 pandemic. How is the crisis affecting us personally? What are we learning right now, especially about our fears, that may serve us in the aftermath? When we look at the crisis from broader perspectives, what new possibilities can we see for ourselves and for the whole?


Helen referenced a 1998 interview with the poet and musical artist Leonard Cohen.

Lisa referenced her own blog post in response to the crisis and the 1979 film Apocalypse Now directed produced and co-written by Francis Ford Coppola. She also cited Michael Ray, Professor of Stanford's Graduate School Business, whose work focuses on creativity and the power dispelling the inner critic
