Episode 10 is all about Healing from Depression and Grief with Peter Nathaniel Lee
This is a very special episode for me because #1, Peter is my husband #2 he has just published his first book, ‘Walk with Me’ and #3 it covers topics that I think are really important to talk about openly – mental health, depression and suicide. And, while this is a deep conversation, like the book, it’s also full of hope, inspiration, synchronicities, following your heart and the magic of life.
So a little bit about Peter. There have been 3 constants in Peter’s life – the desire to travel the world, lovely deeply and the inescapable impulse to write about the two.
At sixteen, to escape the confines of his youth, and in search of a great story, he joined the Royal Navy, where he travelled to many strange and exotic places in the company of honourable pirates, as he calls them.
Inspired by tales of backpacking, he left the Royal Navy and spent the next several years living out of a bag, wandering around Asia and South America. He lived in Ashrams, surf retreats, kung fu schools, shamanic treehouses, and on a sheep farm in New Zealand before returning to the UK to complete a degree in Creative Writing and English Lit.
In 2010, Peter walked the Camino De Santiago, which inspired, ‘Walk With Me.’ A story of adventure and spiritual awakening, it’s also an up close and personal story of healing from grief and depression, and overcoming generational addiction.
Peter currently lives in-between Bali, Australia and the world with me, works as a Breath-worker therapist, entrepreneur (he co-founded and manages Sacred Lotus Love® – our online Gift Company), and freelance writer. He continues to explore life, inside and out, in the spirit of a pilgrim.
What we cover:
- Why Peter left everything and walked the Camino
- Burning down the barn to see the moon
- Grief, unprocessed trauma + depression
- The impact of suicide on families
- Healing Generational stories – forward and back
- Dyslexia and being told you wouldn’t make it as a writer
- Letting go of the critical teacher on your shoulder
- Living in Alignment with your dream
- Tips for how to get a book written
I’m looking forward to introducing Peter to you – to talk about these important topics, but also the process of a writing a book – especially if you have a book inside of you and have perhaps struggled with confidence in your ability to write it and get it out the world – this podcast is for you!
Let’s dive into these important topics.
