Surpriiiiise! This is our last episode of Season 1, and we’re rounding it out with a conversation about real-time, embodied emotional presence, and how we intentionally honor Self and Other — without self-sacrificing — when the lines that run between our hearts and the ones we love get blurry. We’re talking about the vulnerability that rushes to the forefront when strong emotion is present, and how we create a healthy adult egoic experience in relating with others. Can we notice our patterns of opening and closing, revealing and self-protecting, even when the moment — or the ones around us — seem to be asking for something different…?
At its core, this episode is about the bedrock Dead Hearts Club was founded on: challenging ourselves to stay so heart open that you kinda feel like you’re gonna die — and doing it in a way that holds impeccable individual (and group) boundaries, taking a shit ton of personal responsibility, and allowing ourselves to be held in our unscripted, wildly unpredictable humanity and hearts. Bria is sharing a recent experience on a trip with a group of friends where she found herself asking, “What would the DHC way of doing this be?”
What I really loved about this conversation was the way we were able to slow the pace and access the body-wisdom that it so unbelievably central to our personal practice of DHC, and how this embodied way of consistently revealing our hearts is the vulnerability-in-action guiding our whole process here on this podcast.
And then we wrap up the episode (and the season) with some bone-deep, love-drenched (classic Morgan and Bria) reflection on what’s changed for us since Dead Hearts Club began.
