I’m sending this episode from my little winter cave to yours! It’s been such a joy to speak to A.J. Bond again, who was also my guest on episode #137. We covered a lot of tender ground and there was so much there that really touched and delighted me. I’m wishing you a gentle transition into 2023 and hope you’ll enjoy listening to our reflections on:

  • Earnestly looking for deep meaning in life
  • Shame, belonging and wanting to please
  • Holding messy parts together
  • Self-expression and creativity

A.J. Bond is a Toronto-based writer, filmmaker, and shame educator. As a gay man and former child actor, A.J. is no stranger to shame. After experiencing a life-changing “shame breakthrough” in therapy several years ago, A.J. dedicated himself to educating others about our “master emotion” through Shame Ed classes and one-on-one coaching. A.J. is certified as a shame-healing practitioner by the Center for Healing Shame in Berkeley and has also trained in Nonviolent Communication and Authentic Relating. A.J. is the host of the podcast Discomfortable, exploring shame and other difficult emotions. Visit www.discomfortable.net for more info.
