The Apocalypse: The Waiting

A Thinker's Guide To…

The Apocalypse: The Waiting


I've been thinking about how to avoid Hell for over 30 years now. I have this painful memory when I first discovered the idea of Hell that still tears me apart.

You and I, we find a multitude of ways to avoid our memories. We speed through life, and focus on everything but our pain. Even when we sink into our memories, we have an interesting way of rewriting them. Anything to obscure both the ordinary and the horrific.

When life comes to a standstill, and we're forced to slow down, our memories come to the surface. So today, in our fourth episode, we're paying attention to what happens when survival demands stillness; when our fears begin to make themselves known.

We're talking about the painful memories.  After much debate, I've mustered the courage to allow myself to be very vulnerable with you and share the edges of my own trauma.

Hi, I'm Jenn.

I’m a psychotherapist. But you can also call me a depth seeker, an intuitive healer, and the most curious soul you’ve ever met. I delight in helping professionals unveil what kind of life they actually would love living, rather than just living the life they thought they should live. I ask the terrifyingly wonderful questions so people can find new ways to tell old stories. Are you willing to dig in deep and discover what’s hiding underneath the mask you show to the world?
