Join Candice for an inspiring dialogue with a long-time friend and coaching client, Karima Borni. Together, they take a philosophical deep dive into self-trust, specifically as it relates to life's dark directives. Kari shares how passage into motherhood triggered a 'primal' response in her body and mind, forcing her to re-author her entire approach to life. They reflect on the ongoing struggle to restore inner authority and embody the soul-self as our center of gravity; naming specific challenges that result when hard-earned identities are threatened by the passing seasons of life. Candice tells the story of a recent job offer, her ambivalence, and how she's learned to discern between fear and intuition. Kari speaks to how she’s been able to trace so much of her suffering back to social conditioning and fears around mortality, and how she’s now learning to approach life with greater equanimity and acceptance. This is a soulful dialogue that circles us back to the earliest episodes of the podcast, reminding us that no matter how much we seek to control life, it's gonna do its thing and continually remind us… trust is an inside job.

Karima Borni is a college dance professor, dancer-choreographer, and scholar in human-animal studies. Her current research is on the development of somatic knowledge through interspecies communication. She holds a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology from Northwestern University. She currently lives on a farm in New England with her family.
