Braving the wilderness is a journey to discovering your true belonging and authentic self.
In this episode, Casey and Dr. Joel share the lessons they are learning in the wilderness. How to navigate the shame-storm that gathers for every wilderness sojourner. Answering these howling questions: Why didn't I fight for myself sooner? What's wrong with me? How did I allow myself to get into that situation in the first place?
The desire to "belong" is primal. We intrinsically desire to belong to something greater than ourselves and to find "true belonging." We all look for our group, our people, our tribe. Because the desire to belong is so primal, it's easy to give up one's authenticity, freedom and power - and not even recognize it - to fit in with the group.
But . . . true belonging only happens, as Casey says in this episode, "When we present out true authentic selves to the world." Finding your squad is important, but it should never come at the expense of your authenticity, freedom and power.
