Gwyneth Paltrow x Jay Shetty: What Happens When You Spend Time with Yourself?

Gwyneth Paltrow x Jay Shetty: What Happens When You Spend Time with Yourself?

The goop Podcast - September 15, 2020 - 50:25

Jay Shetty, author of the new book Think Like a Monk, is in part known as a former monk. Now, he serves as a coach, helping people identify and live out their purpose. He joined GP to talk about why many of us have never really spent time by ourselves, with ourselves—and what can happen when we do. Shetty has a different way of thinking about compassion for self and compassion for others; and it involves not devaluing or belittling pain. He also has a clarifying way of looking at the fine line between compassion and victimhood (so that we don’t get stuck in victim consciousness) and distinguishing feelings (which can be fleeting and misleading) from emotions.
