Pleasure Famine: Coping in 2020 and Beyond

RATED PG: Describing difficult situations

Rebecca & Sara talk about what has been missing in their lives during the pandemic, how they are coping, the apathy that creeps in when our lives’ story arcs feel so much smaller than they have been, social media and it’s effects, and the different ways that different cultures connect around tragedy - optimism and pessimism.

“I enjoyed listening [to this episode], so much of it resonates with me still, especially with with my frame of mind over the past couple of months, and hearing others talk about how they’re affected helps a great deal. In fact, I’ve found this and your last 2-3 episodes to be a bit therapeutic to me, as they’ve drawn some strong emotions, made me think back through a lot of past experiences and process differently, and also better understand some of my current challenges with loneliness and lack of connection, even though I’m married and live with someone.” - A Beta Group Listener

The prior episode with Sara, episode 29, is about Tango, Neuromapping, Embodiment and 0-60 Intimacy and it can be found at:
