by | Challenge & Growth, podcast | 2 comments

In this episode, Concetta and Carol talk about what it means to be a Human Doing vs. a Human Being in today’s world. It’s a question all of us must ask ourselves as we live in an increasingly complex, fast-paced and ever-changing world that involves so much doing. Most everyone’s day appears to be externally driven involving so much doing.

  3. Stillness in being
  4. “Indulging” in the present moment
  5. Healing from burnout – the power of Nature
  6. Decision points 
  7. What is human “DOing”?
  8. Balance achievement and being busy with self-nurturing
