On today’s show, we’re talking about seeing the world with a little more compassion-towards others, and towards ourselves. Because most of us musicians are our own worst critic. How do we push ourselves to practice and improve, without making life miserable because we’re beating ourselves up. Looking outwards, how can we be supportive colleagues, encouraging friends, and positive influences at rehearsals and gigs to those around us? Empathy and Self Compassion. Those aren’t topics that we’re that good at, or know a lot about. So we brought in an expert to walk through it with us. Our guest has a Ph.D in clinical counseling and is a Lecturer at Lynn University in the school of Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She’s Dr. Angie O’Gieblyn, and yes she’s my wife.
