Suggested viewing before we meet (6 min video):

How is it that one of the great problems of human beings is that we’re far too good at keeping going?

In what ways is a breakdown not merely a random piece of madness or malfunction, but a very real – albeit very inarticulate – bid for health?

How is a breakdown not just a pain but an extraordinary opportunity to learn?

Why can’t we simply listen to the emotional need calmly and in good time and avoid the melodrama of a breakdown?

How might we compare the process of a breakdown to a revolution?

What would it take for you to dislodge from a toxic status quo and listen to the insistent call to rebuild your life on a more authentic and sincere basis?

Let's think about it!
