Cycles of Growth in a Time Between Worlds

Taking a broader view of personality that includes more abstract layers of selfhood means navigating a more complex perspective on development.

In this conversation with writer and futurist Zak Stein we explore the challenge of our time in metabolizing tragedy and complexity, the post-tragic and post-traumatic growth, the difference between ensoulment and transcendence growth, and three streams of personal development and how they can impact a coaching approach.
