Ep. 37 The Practice of Saying Yes with Scott Erickson

Embodied Holiness

Mar 14 2023 • 26 mins

SCOTT ERICKSON has had long midnight conversations with the Voice of Giving Up, and knows how depression can make the Voice especially loud. In this episode we talk with Scott about how he's moved beyond the Voice of Giving Up into a life of saying yes, the difference between a desire and a dream, and how the spiritual practice of taking away helps us grow closer to God.

Scott is currently touring his one man show, “SAY YES: A Liturgy of Not Giving Up On Yourself”, juxtaposing story-teaching, participation, humor, and image curation as he walks us through the very personal and universal conversation about the death of a dream and the overwhelming voice of Giving Up in our lives.
