Self-Knowledge Series 10: What Do You Want?

The grand finale of the Self-Knowledge mini-series! To end, I’m asking you the deceptively simple question: what do you want? It’s easy to go through life without really answering this question. Of course, we can answer specifics: like what do you want to order from a restaurant. Or you can be tempted to answer through […]

Self-Knowledge Series 09: Your Shadow

Again, we’re looking to Carl G. Jung for the answers on today’s 9th + penultimate episode in the Self-Knowledge mini series.

Self-Knowledge Series 02: How Do You Learn?
