I recorded this interview right in the middle of the insanely stressful year 2020, with the Covid-19 pandemic creating danger to life and career PLUS massive civil unrest, the murder of George Floyd and others by rogue police, fires, floods, and an election with more issues at stake than any in my lifetime. I hope with all my heart that future listeners will see this time successfully settled with changes that create a much better world. But I can't think of a better time than right now to be interviewing Katie Zaccardi, who has made the journey from anxiety to wellness and now coaches others to do the same!
Topics we covered include:
- The dangerous advice of requiring creatives to dedicate 100+ % of themselves to their artistry.
- Katie's story of her own anxiety disorder and journey to healing
- Understanding the counterproductive lies (addictions, eating disorders, depression, etc) that our creative brains act on so we can free ourselves.
- Katie's yoga work and how it can benefit vocalists.
- How to move from anxiety towards wellness, even during stressful reality such as the year 2020.
- Katie's artistic metamorphosis into her unique counseling career and her new musical road.
- The benefits for artists of balancing spending time along and in company with others.
