EP77 What is Eudaimonia and Why Do I Want It?

JULY 18, 2023 | EPISODE 77

Step into the world of eudaimonia with us, Sami Kinnison and Angela Belford. The ancient wisdom encapsulated in this enduring philosophy, handed down from Socrates and Aristotle, extends beyond mere happiness—it’s a pursuit, a journey towards life satisfaction. And we promise you, in this episode, you’ll discover how relevant this age-old concept still is, how it’s essential for living a well-intentioned life, and how it continually nudges us to learn, grow, and evolve.

We also set sail on a voyage of self-discovery, sharing insights on how understanding oneself can lead to joy and fulfillment. We face off against the inner critic, a nemesis that can often create roadblocks on our path, and explore how to tackle it with confidence.

In the pursuit of personal fulfillment, we highlight the transformative power of hobbies—how they can be a conduit to explore our passions, sharpen our skills, and most importantly, bring joy. From discussing the pursuit of meaningful goals to sharing our excitement for the inspirational book ‘Traveling Light,’ we invite you to join us on this enriching exploration of self-discovery, personal fulfillment, and the pursuit of eudaimonia. Tune in and begin your pursuit of a well-rounded life.

EP97 Reframing Success with Dimple Dhabalia

Have you ever wondered about the challenging world of humanitarian work and the intricacies it presents? This episode brings you the remarkable insights of Dimple Dabalia, founder of Roots in the Clouds. With a 20-year-long journey in the government and hands-on experience working with asylum-seekers and refugees, Dimple opens up about the harsh reality of vicarious trauma that humanitarians encounter. We dissect the need to redefine success in such taxing fields, referencing her new book coming out in February 2024, “Tell Me My Story,” which promotes the idea of humanitarians caring for their own wellbeing first.
