Needy 117: Living a small & delicious life with Carmen Spagnola

How do we balance hope and despair, expansion and collapse, survival and rest?

In today’s episode, Carmen Spagnola joins me to discuss how she cultivates a small and delicious life in the face of collapse. Together we explore the realities of not being able to meet all our needs, what happens when we’re under-resourced (and what happens when we’re ecologically resourced), and the paradigm shifts we need around needs.

Carmen Spagnola is a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef turned trauma recovery practitioner, clinical hypnotherapist, and kitchen witch. As a chef, author, and facilitator, Carmen holds space for renewal amidst turmoil. Her work is an invitation to re-enchantment, soul nourishment, and a deeper and more animistic relationship to the natural world. She provides frameworks and skills to create cultures of collective care in precarious times.

Tune in to hear more about…

  • Sitting with your needs when they can’t be met
  • Finding hope & feeling despair in our collapsing world
  • Taking care of ourselves in survival moments
  • Attachment theory and how we approach our needs
  • Recognizing yourself as part of an ecosystem

Hang with Carmen…
