EP199: The Art of Authenticity with Laura Coe
I enjoyed this conversation with today’s guest, Laura Coe so much. We talked about some really practical things and laughed a lot at ourselves and how humans behave in today’s interesting world. We explored how in every moment there’s an infinite number of ways to interpret what happens and reclaiming the word “authenticity” which is both overused and misused in our content-heavy society. And we dove into some “big” topics like existentialism, self-regulation, and how suffering happens when we try to hold onto pleasure and push pain away. It’s a very illuminating discussion, can’t wait to hear what you get out of it! xo, E
