Slo Mo: Karen Guggenheim on Coping and Evolving with Tragedy
In this episode of Slo Mo, Mo Gawdat speaks with Karen Guggenheim, a woman who embodies unwavering resilience and passion for making the world a happier place.
Mo has attended and spoken at WOHASU each year since 2017, and it has been an incredibly special experience. Unfortunately, the 2020 edition of WOHASU was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, just six days before the event date.
Karen and Mo share the same mission of spreading happiness. Also, they share the experience of profound loss, as Karen lost her husband to illness years ago. Naturally, Mo feels a deep connection with her and have enormous respect for her decision to take control of her grief and channel it into a force for good.
Listen as they discuss coping with tragedy and the panic of pandemic; the brilliant trick of scheduling time for your anxiety; and the undeniable truth that it is always in our power to react to hardship in a way that grows us rather than destroys us.
This episode is part of Silver Linings theme.
