Nature, Spirit, and Disintegration
Join hosts Emma Nicholson and Chris Wells for Episode 10 with Eric Windhorst
In episode 10, Chris and Emma were joined by Dr. Eric Windhorst, a counsellor, coach, and psychotherapist committed to helping others connect with their inner nature (their true, authentic selves) and outer nature (the wider, more-than-human world). Eric shared his story with us and connected his experiences of personal growth and development with Dąbrowski’s theory as well as other frameworks. He discussed spirituality, an aspect of self that is often overlooked in intellectual frameworks, and we learned about Eric’s journey to becoming his authentic self. Eric recalled an experience working in a greenhouse during his teen years and how that led him to take a holistic approach in nurturing his clients and allowing them to discover themselves. He talked with us about the work he does with intense, gifted, creative, and highly sensitive adults, and how his own discoveries and transformations have informed his practice.
