Ep. 12: Abby Wen Wu, Permission to Feel


In this episode, I interviewed Abby Wen Wu (she/her), who is a first-generation Chinese-American woman. Her work currently focuses on helping individuals in organizations find their voice to have courageous conversations, and also teach others advanced listening skills so the world has more spaces for us all to be heard.

In this episode, we chatted about:

  • Root of our emotional discomforts & how that ties to the Asian American culture & upbringing
  • Permission to feel: how to fully feel through an emotion or overwhelming sensations in the body
  • Power of emotions and somatic experiencing to finding one’s true voice
  • Dealing with workplace burnout & stress and post-recovery
  • How emotional healing plays a role in our mental health and well-being
  • How emotional healing plays a role in our collective well-being

Also, stay till the end for a 5-minute BONUS practice session as Abby guides us to feel our bodily sensations via a practice called Focusing
