Wiggle Room Podcast: Episode 16

My Mother Committed Suicide + Moving Beyond What Is Familiar – An Antidote To Grief

My Mother Committed Suicide

In this episode of the Wiggle Room Podcast, you’ll hear a participant using The Work of Byron Katie to question a challenging thought, “My mother committed suicide.” In this case, she is questioning an actual statement of fact. As she works, you’ll see how she starts to find a little wiggle room in her thinking.
