EP260: On Cowardice, Deep Healing and Being Dead With Karen Hawkwood

Today’s guest, Karen Hawkwood is one of those people I’ve never met in real life but somehow have a deep kinship with. I LOVE the way this woman’s mind and heart come together to articulate the nuance and complexity of life’s realest issues.

Her big truth was that most people are cowards, meaning–most people are not in integrity. From there we discussed:

-Cowardly moments
-How to actually “do integrity” – what we give, and how to turn our insights on ourselves
-Establishing a relationship to “that which is beyond”
-Her definition of forgiveness, which includes an important distinction between responsibility and accountability.
-The difference between shame and accountability
-How anger and hurt protect us from each other
-A full spectrum view of death and rebirth processes that includes the dying and being dead part
-Grief and identity, and more.

This one is definitely a listen more than once, take notes, invite your friends, and take your time to process it kind of conversation. Enjoy!

About Karen Hawkwood:

Karen Hawkwood (also known as KJ Sassypants, or on occasion Saint Sassypants) lives at the intersection of Down Street and Starry Spiral Way. She sees more about you than you really want her to, and then uses that to pave your path into the darkness, and through it to where you become All Of You At Once. She’ll see all the way to your bones and then light them on fire so they illuminate you like a lamp. She promises nothing, offers an odd assortment of things you didn’t know you wanted, and occasionally drops a jewel or a small bird. Her methods involve measurable things like coaching, astrology, intellect, and vulgar language, and much more erratic and dubious things like hearing spider feet, consorting with mythical creatures, sending flowers down in the well bucket and drawing up strange songs, and laughing at her own jokes.

What You’ll Hear:
6:15 How people are often out of integrity + understanding ignorance and cowardice
19:30 Why no-one does it all themselves + a deeper understanding of forgiveness
35:39 Distortions of archetypal natures within relationships
45:07 On the heart and repair vs regeneration

    Wow! Wow! Wow! This episode resonated with me and touched me in profound ways. I’ve been quoting you both for days. Walking around being dead. The ash house. And the whole segment on forgiveness – no longer able to pluck that string – writing that debt off the books. I’ve been beating myself up for not being able to “forgive” those who have hurt me. It never felt right, no matter what I was doing. But I realize now, that I forgave that debt…for some, not all yet. Thank you both for your honesty and to help me realize that I am a truth teller and I’ve been trying to hide that. That whole piece about the clutch factory — LOLOLOL — OMG!! I totally got it more than I have ever understood myself before. Wow! It is part of why I end up so exhausted around people. Whew! So, thank you!
