49m | Feb 14, 2022

Aliza Kelly connects with Shelly Tygielski (Cancer Sun, Cancer Moon, Sagittarius Rising), author of “Sit Down to Rise Up,” founder of the grassroots mutual aid organization Pandemic of Love, and trauma-informed mindfulness and meditation teacher. In this episode, Shelly tells Aliza about how she went from being a major business executive to a mindfulness teacher to the founder of Pandemic of Love. They dive into the impact of the 2016 election and the global pandemic on collective consciousness, citing the exhaustion, burnout, and unprocessed trauma that continues to plague society. Shelly explains what meditation means to her, how it changed her life, and its integral role in building resilience. She describes self-care as a communal pursuit and the importance of cultivating the ability to sit with discomfort. Shelly tells Aliza about her belief in love and the interconnectedness of humanity, and Aliza pulls a tarot card to illuminate Shelly’s future home.
