Life after the Great Reassessment. “There’s nothing very serious happening here”.

By Åsa Nilsson | Jun 28, 2024

Alexis is a beautiful soul who feels deeply. She has a gentle knowing of what’s to come and is confident that everything will work out.

Even when caring for her dying parents, experiencing an anxiety attack while driving through the mountains of North Carolina with two children in the back seat, or bearing the burden and shame of her mother’s alcoholism, Alexis maintains her faith and resilience.

Join us as we discuss what Alexis’ life looks like today. We’ll explore her journey through shame, the importance of kindness, having hard conversations, embracing ‘lightness,’ feeling isolated, grieving alone, the impermanence of everything, finding joy in the next moment, and staying present.

She is deeply connected to her highest truth, and the gentle stillness of her being is heartwarming.

We hope you enjoy our chat.
