How to Keep Your Inner Flame Burning with Damian White
#182 Today’s episode is about the essence of who we are as human beings. It’s about our inner flameand the things we do to keep it alive at all costs, even when all the odds seem to be stacked against us. It’s about coming home to ourselves, weathered and fractured, but resolved to reclaim our identity. And it’s about turning our life experience into a form of expression that not only heals the artists, but his readers as well. Kathy is joined today by writer Damian White, who just released his debut collection of illustrated poetry entitled, I Made a Place For You. We go long in this conversation, talking about his journey from PhD student to being homeless, living on the streets of San Francisco, to his life today as a writer, husband and step-father. Here’s what we cover:Damian’s compelling backstory and emergence as a writer;How he kept his inner flame burning during challenging times;The importance of mental health and well-being;How creative expression can be healing; andThe paradox of spirituality.
