#98 Camping in the Heartlands (with Cat Tweedie)

The Wonder Dome

Jun 8 2022 • 1 hr 2 mins

Cat Tweedie is the CEO and co-founder of Sleepawake Camp, a four-week residential intensive for 18 to 24-year-olds to explore how to live life with authenticity and awareness.

Up through graduating high school, the average young person has spent 18,000 hours studying science, math, language, arts, and social studies. But there's a really good chance that those same students have spent zero hours studying how to negotiate conflict, focus their attention, work skillfully with their emotions, or even how to allow themselves to have emotions and express them fully and wholeheartedly.

Sleepawake Camp is about giving space for young people to step into the parts of life that are essential to our humanity but are absent from much of the social, organizational, and educational contexts that those of us who are privileged to have access to education to still don't get exposure to.

What I loved most about this conversation with Cat was her clear and potent invitation to all of us, regardless of how old we are, to step more fully into the emotional realities of life. This conversation explores how we might be able to find pathways back to our authentic, wholehearted selves.
