Takeaway’s from this episode:

  1. Be prepared during Mercury in Retrograde that technical issues may occur.
  2. The greatest classroom is at the foot of a senior citizen. 
  3. Let your heart and values be your GPS. 
  4. After many iterations of different sorts of work, Tammy finally found her sweet spot between Leadership + Coaching by looking at her values and strengths. 
  5. I met Tammy via a book called ‘Being Boss’, I reached out and introduced myself to her and loved her immediately (side note from Åsa). 
  6. To be able to do this sort of work, Tammy uses yoga, her spirituality, being near the water, seeing the cycles of life, rest, time for reflection to bring her back to her center.
  7. Tammy uses herself of the philosophies of the first 2 Sutras (5000 years old): If it works, great. If it’s not working, stop. 
    • 7/17 – Tammy and I share a birthday!!! Yes, it’s true! 
  8. Understanding and befriending grief. 40 types of loss we can grieve.
  9. The Grief Recovery Method that Tammy uses in her coaching. The premise of completing the pain so you can take the next steps. 
  10. We’re all going to die one day, how do you want to live?
  11. What is a death doula? 
  12. Get your individual ‘team’ together now so you don’t waste any time if you do get the notice of being ill. Lawers, therapists, document your death wishes.
  13. Goldmine of working through your shadows. If you have a fear of death then start  with grief. Grief isn’t a cookie cutter experience so shed a loving and gentle light on it. 
  14. Feminizing death. Normalising the conversations.

  1. I was so moved by this episode—it has caused me to pause and really think about the subject of death. I have lost so many to a sudden death (most recently by suicide) but I’m also realizing many other forms of grief I’ve had in my lifetime that aren’t death related. Wow—I am so so grateful to have this information. ♥️

    1. Thank you, Noelle, for listening and for FEELING this. We can’t run from our own grief forever and sometimes it’s what’s actually steering our car… without us knowing it, right? I am honoured to have you listen in and to share. With so much love, Åsa
