Episode 44: Restorative Journaling with Esmé Weijun Wang


I had a lot of fun talking to Esmé for this episode. A writer and mental health advocate from San Francisco, Esmé is devoted to sharing her brain ailments with folks who know and understand, as well as the ones who don't, and are better because they do. She is the creator of esmewang.com, where she blogs about mental health, journaling, and radical sincerity.Topics we cover in this podcast include:

  • Restorative journaling: what it is, who it's for, and the benefits it brings
  • Useful restorative journaling practices
  • The power of language in our journaling practices
  • Emotions and social conditioning
  • Esmé's upcoming restorative journaling course

... and much, much more!Useful LinksThe Rawness of Remembering: Restorative Journaling Through Difficult Times - Esmé's upcoming journaling courseBrené BrownThis is WaterInfinite Jest - David Foster WallaceThe Waste Land and Other Poems - T.S.
