Inner Work 029: Living with chronic illness

Living with a “chronic” illness (using Western medicine’s term) is challenging and difficult. It can radically alter our lives and throw us into unknown, uncertain, and lonely terrain. In this episode, I discuss how we can use illness — or any other life-altering event — as an initiation into authenticity, into becoming more of who you really are and asserting what you really need. 

Episode highlights:

  • my own story with chronic illness
  • the concept of “initiation by exile” from the work of healer & dreamworker Toko-pa Turner
  • how an illness or diagnosis can transform us for the better
  • how to cultivate authenticity and become more of who you really are.


Thank you so much for listening, and keep doing your inner work — the world needs it!
