In my conversation with grief therapist and educator Mitch Davidowitz about his life, he shares a number of examples of fortuitous experiences that, for him, proved to be catalysts for personal transformation. They each were pivotal to his becoming the person he was to become, many aspects of which were completely unplanned.
For me, it brings up a lot of questions. Are we being nudged by life to move in a particular direction? Is who we ultimately become inevitable? How much say do we have in the matter? How much of who we become is luck vs. happenstance vs. a result of decisions freely made (aka, free will)? How much does our own openness, willingness, stubbornness, or inborn nature play a part in our unfolding?
Check out my discussion with this fascinating and beautiful human being, where we explore some of these questions while covering Mitch’s path toward becoming a therapist, avid student of meditative practices, and inspirational writer, with plenty of twists and turns along the way.
