Cheryl Richardson - Waking Up In Winter
Do these words describe you? You’ve come to a point in your life where you begin to question what’s come before and what’s yet to come. Whether you are in your thirties, forties, fifties or older, there are times that these deep and profound questions and thoughts are in the forefront of our consciousness. What steps can we take to lead the lives that we consciously choose and find personal, professional, emotional and spiritual fulfilment?
My very special guest this week on Destination Unlimited, New York Times bestselling author of Life Makeovers and Take Time for Your Life, and beloved spiritual teacher, Cheryl Richardson, found herself asking these same questions. She delivers her most intimate and profound work to date on the obstacles and opportunities of reaching mid-life in her new book, WAKING UP IN WINTER: In Search of What Really Matters in Midlife. It is the breath-takingly candid account of the most impactful year of Cheryl’s life. With passages that capture the intricacies of marriage, friendship, success, money, and self-care, Cheryl offers her experiences as an illustration of how to grow, reflect, laugh, and change. A lifelong journal writer, Cheryl had been for years documenting her inner most thoughts, desires, and hopes. She recognized that these passages and reflections were exactly what her readers need from her, representing teaching in action and life being lived.
