Y'all, you know I wasn't trying to have too many coaching conversations on the podcast this year, but today's guest Shirin Eskandani is here because this woman has much more to bring to a conversation than basic coaching advice.
Her big truth was that we have to look up to shift our perspectives and from there we got into a conversation about mindfulness, the relationship between joy, acceptance and guilt, navigating adult relationships and creative patience.
She also shares some of her personal experiences immigrating from Iran to Vancouver at a young age, then coming to the US to pursue her dream of being an opera singer. Spoiler: not only did she realize that dream, she did it in a big way and the result is not what you might expect to hear.
We also explored the impacts of whiteness in wellness spaces, code-switching, and the relationship between self-worth and service.
It was a really dynamic chat and I can't wait to hear what lands for you!
