We are so often afraid of our own aliveness that we'll cover it up with an image, a role, or an identity that's been handed to us by others. But what possibilities for encounter with life and with one another are born when we cross the thin divide between 'image' and 'realness'? A conversation about not turning away with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. Here’s Episode 84 of Turning Towards Life, a weekly live 30 minute conversation hosted by Thirdspace (http://wearethirdspace.org/)...

What’s the cost of our constant comparison with others, with a life we think we’re meant to be living, or with our past or future selves? There’s a good reason why comparison has been called ‘the thief of joy’. So what happens when we find a way, instead, of bringing ourselves whole-heartedly as we are, to the life we’re already living? A conversation about not turning away with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. Here’s Episode 83 of Turning Towards Life, a weekly live 30 minute...

Even in the darkest of situations can we find a way to be joyful? Is there a kind of gratitude which isn't a turning away from the gravity of things? Might just this joy and gratitude be what's called for if we're to face our situation with sufficient energy, creativity and ethical care? A conversation about not turning away with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. Here's Episode 82 of Turning Towards Life, a weekly live 30 minute conversation hosted by Thirdspace...

81: Two Paths

4/21/2019
More
In every moment we have a choice about how to meet the circumstances of our lives, and the cumulative effect of our choices adds up to a path we walk through life. What happens when we pay attention enough that we can know ourselves as choosing? And which path will we choose - fear or faithfulness, scattered or present? A conversation with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. In this conversation we explore the ways in which our moment-to-moment interpretation shapes the way we bring...

80: The Place Where We Are Right

4/14/2019
More
It's so gratifying to be right, but often it's our very rightness that strangles the life out of our relationships and out of our own existence. What can we do to soften our rightness and allow both doubt and love, so that something new can come in? A conversation with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. In this conversation we consider together how easy and gratifying it can be to feel right, even right about our own uncertainty, and how easily 'rightness' strangles the life out of...

What can we do, when we get wounded, to stay in a relationship with others that’s dignified and respectful of everyone's humanity? It’s a question pertinent both to our personal relationships and to our troubled, fractious conversations about the big issues of our times. A conversation with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. In this conversation we explore together how we might navigate a course between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ when we're wounded, without it having to entail that we give...

78: Precious Time

3/31/2019
More
The mystery of time and death. We explore two different ways that we turn away from the reality of time – either by tuning out from the fleeting nature of things and the urgency of our response, or by eating up time in a panicked flurry of frantic activity. Somewhere between the two, we discover, is a way in which we can meet time more directly, more lovingly, and in a more responsive way – and in a way that helps us both decide what matters and invest our activities with mattering. Along...

77: Let Us Begin the Journey Home

How should we respond to our confusing, complex times? Is there a way that we can find ourselves deep in the midst of the sacred ordinariness of life, ready to contribute and participate without being so convinced of our smallness, separateness or fear? A conversation with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. This week we return to a poem by Rumi that calls to these confusing and complex times. We explore together what can happen as we soften ourselves so that life, in its bigger...

75: On Self-Compassion and Belonging

3/31/2019
More
How our welcoming ourselves makes it possible for us to welcome others more fully, without having to control them or judge them. And what comes from welcoming even our own shame. A conversation with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. In this conversation we talk about the belonging in life that is supported by finding out that all the parts of us that we usually push away, and all the experiences too, also belong. We explore together how difficult it can be to welcome ourselves with...

76: Life While You Wait

What happens when we meet ‘what is’ with an open heart, and when we drop our demands that life somehow bend itself exactly to our will? A conversation with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. What might it be to enter into the vast mystery of life with an attitude of welcome? What happens, we wonder, when we meet ‘what is’ with an open heart, and when we drop our demands that life somehow bend itself exactly to our will? We consider the ways in which life is an ongoing invitation to...

What happens when we see and loosen the loyalties we may have carried since childhood but which no longer serve us? A conversation about adult development, freedom and finding out what's ours to do, with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. In this conversation we talk about adult development, about the loyalties to particular ways of doing things that we enter into during childhood, and about what it is to find ourselves free – to a greater or lesser extent – to pursue what is...

73: The Seven of Pentacles

3/31/2019
More
How can we see through the stories we have about life that have us either be too small (and which have us give up) or too big (when we demand that the world goes just our way)? What it is to see that most of life doesn't unfold in a 'cause and effect' way? And how to 'live as if you liked yourself' - finding our goodness in the midst of everything that happens. Turning Towards Life is a weekly live 30 minute conversation hosted by Thirdspace in which Justin Wise and Lizzie Winn dive deep...

72: What to Remember When Waking

3/31/2019

How might we live in life's mystery without being swallowed by fear, or losing touch with ourselves? A conversation about living with depth with Justin Wise and Lizzie Winn of Thirdspace. In this conversation we consider how to have our lives be informed by the depth and imagination of our sleeping dreams, and what it is to find a way to be a gift back to the life that is a gift to us. Our source this week is by the poet David Whyte. Turning Towards Life is a weekly live 30 minute...

How avoiding fear can shrink our lives. A conversation about living in an ever larger world, with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. In this conversation we consider what it takes to live in an ever larger world of both meaning and contribution, and how that nearly always calls on us to move towards what we’re most afraid of. As we go we talk about the ways in which fear draws us away from our capacity to respond to what’s actually happening now, the kindness to ourselves that’s...

3/31/2019

Self-deception, our attempts to stay in control of everything, and the trouble that comes from all of it. Our source this week is an extract from a piece published on Justin's blog, justinwise.co.uk. We use it to launch into a conversation about self-deception, trying to stay in control of circumstances and experiences (and the cost of both), the trouble that comes from our attempts to manage our own image, the wisdom and delights of the enneagram as a way of understanding personality...

3/31/2019

The difficult and live-giving work of both loving and grieving. A conversation about courage and tenderness with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. In this conversation we consider together how easily our fear of loss can stop us from loving fully, how love and grief are but two sides of the same coin, and how we might step into both with a clear heart, courage and tenderness. And along the way we find much to be joyful about, and to laugh about. Turning Towards Life is a weekly live...

The urgency of belonging to the world. A conversation about the feeling safe even when the world is risky, with Justin Wise and Lizzie Winn of Thirdspace. This conversation is inspired by a poem by Mary Oliver, who died this week. Lizzie and Justin talk about the power of ongoing practices to shape the world; the many ways in which we're taught that we're in some way separate from things, and what we might do about that; what it is to feel safe, even when life is risky; and the gifts that we...

How we box ourselves into an identity - a conversation about shame, self-criticism and freedom with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace. One of the weirdest and yet most understandable features of being a human being is how we'll box ourselves in to an identity - a particular way of being in the world that allows this but doesn't allow that; a way that we lay out familiar territory for ourselves, fiercely bounded by shame and self-criticism, that easily stops us from bringing ourselves...
