SEEKING THE SELF: ERIKA

By Seeking The Self • 002: Shadows

In this issue of Seeking the Self, Dr. Aaron Balick and Nathalie Nahai speak with Erika to hear about her experience of transformation and faith through her journey within the shadow of grief and loss. Raised in the Christian Science tradition, Erika learned what lay beneath her religion as her family silently stood by her mother through breast cancer, and death. Though she sought to distance herself from religion, Erika eventually found her faith reignited through music, and grace.


SEEKING THE SELF is a podcast that explores the nature of self through personal narratives and psychological commentary. We’re co-hosted by DR. AARON BALICK, Director of Stillpoint Spaces International, an organization that seeks to explore psychology, in depth, inside and outside the consulting room; and me, NATHALIE NAHAI, best-selling author and host of The Hive PodcastSeeking the Self is proud to build on our relationship with Stillpoint Spaces to now find our new home within Stillpoint Magazine. Join us in each edition where Seeking the Self will offer an audio experience—crafted by internationally award-winning producer HANA WALKER-BROWN—that explores that issue’s theme, a compliment to the magazine’s rich imagery and text contributions. You’ll find yourself in the eye of the storm, where psychology and culture meet.
