Episode 185: Cultivating Confidence and Authenticity 90 seconds at a time

with Dr. Joan Rosenberg

A lack of confidence can be a huge roadblock in many aspects of our lives, but fortunately we can cultivate this in ourselves. Dr. Joan Rosenberg joins us to share how looking inward at how we approach life can be a pathway to deepening our sense of confidence.

Dr. Rosenberg provides a framework for moving through that which is unpleasant in order to achieve congruence with our bodies and feelings. Happiness, in her definition, is inner peace.
