Moving Through the Journey of Relating with James-Olivia Chu Hillman

May 6, 2021

James-Olivia Chu Hillman is a facilitator and enthusiastic advocate of necessary, uncomfortable, and life-changing conversations. They work with humans (mostly in small groups) who want more joyful connection and less suffering in their relationships with themselves, the people they love & lead, and the world. James-Olivia has a passion for asking questions that make us squirm a bit and point us back to who we are and what we care about most.

In this conversation, Tami and James-Olivia jam on:
*Recognizing our inherent and natural dependence and connection to others
*Distinguishing between our needs and our desires
*Being willing to readjust our boundaries and commitments by reflecting on how each experience lands
*Tuning into our own resourcefulness to get our needs met
*Knowing that we all have different ways of relating; that isn’t bad or wrong
*Unlearning the story that when someone doesn’t meet all of our needs or expectations, it means that we are unworthy of love
*Owning the responsibility of no longer having to fix yourself for someone else
*Not apologizing for being where we are, even when it is unfinished and messy
