There is an unstoppable flow of gain and loss within our lives.

Processing this flow helps us to develop equanimity. In this conversation, Pulitzer Prize-winner and New Yorker staff writer Kathryn Schulz discusses her new book Lost and Found: A Memoir, in which she explores experiencing both a huge loss anda huge gain, and how to live in a world where both happiness and pain commingle.

In this episode we talk about:

  • How humans experience grief
  • A gift you can give to the grieving
  • Why she loves the clichés that remind us to enjoy the moment
  • Her broad understanding of the term “loss”
  • Why the key word in ‘lost and found’ is “and”
  • What she’s learned about compromising in relationships
