Description

In today’s episode, I sit down with Polly Young-Eisendrath, Ph.D., a psychologist, writer, speaker, and Jungian analyst who has published 19 books including, The Self-Esteem Trap: Raising Confident and Compassionate Kids in an Age of Self-Importance and Love Between Equals: Relationship as a Spiritual Path.


 


She hosts the popular podcast ENEMIES: From War to Wisdom that provides a fresh look at human hostilities and what to do about them. She is a lifelong Buddhist practitioner and a Mindfulness teacher. 


 


I learned about Polly through a past guest, Katherine Woodward Thomas, who spoke so highly of her work, and I’m excited to dive in. 


 


We talk about the following and so much more: 


 


✅ What does ”love between equals” mean?


✅ What is projective identification and why does it feel like such a terrible offense? 


✅ Why does it recreate the conditions that we so often want to escape? 


✅ Why we often get stuck in loops in our relationships - it seems like we often get to the same impasse. Why does this happen? 


✅  Why we are so unprepared to be in equal relationships? And what she has seen in her workshops on how we can become equipped to become equal. 


✅ What the self-esteem trap is 


✅ How we free ourselves of self-importance?
