Life, Death & The Space Between with Dr. Amy Robbins

Creating MICROJOYS in Your Life

"It's that idea that you have this ritual in your day to day that brings you a sense of calm, a sense of joy, so that you're starting out from that place and not waking up kind of shaking with anxiety." - Cyndie Spiegel

Join me as I navigate the delicate interplay of joy and grief with Cyndie Spiegel. Cyndie illuminates the rawness of loss and the resilience of the human spirit. She introduces us to the concept of "microjoys," those tiny, yet powerful moments that foster contentment amidst sorrow. We'll explore how these fragments of happiness can coexist with the pain of bereavement and how Cyndie's own journey led her to embrace them. It's a discussion that reaffirms the strength we can find in tenderness and the unexpected places we encounter comfort. Tune in to learn how small joys can illuminate the spaces between life and death, and visit our podcast page for episode notes, Cyndie's insights, and more.
