Inner Work 028: What is inner work and how does it benefit you?


Inner work can be defined in many different ways, but it generally refers to a category of personal work that takes into account our inner landscape, emotions, thoughts, psychology, and beliefs. Inner work requires a certain level of self-awareness and must be practiced persistently to yield transformative results. In this episode (the first under the podcast’s new name!), I explore the role of inner work in personal and spiritual development. Thank you for joining me for this conversation!

Episode highlights:

  • What is inner work?
