Scarcity Complex

Scarcity Complex

Do you ever feel like you have this nagging voice that tells you that you are not enough or that there isn't enough in the world today? Well, you are not alone. I wanted to create a podcast that explores this very idea of fear and scarcity. It dominates our lives, yet rarely is talked about. It is a lens that convinces us that we are all alone, cut off, separate from everyone and everything. When just the opposite is true. My hope is that this podcast will be a heartfelt, honest, and playful exploration of what it means to be truly human and all of who we are. We'll explore topics such as vulnerability, shame, self-expression, and a whole lot more. But most of all, we'll do it together. Subscribe today, and enjoy!... Show More

On this episode, we spoke with Cassandra Vieten, who is the Scholar in Residence at the Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination. We covered a wide range of topics from how do science and ...

#008 - All of us have seeds of doubt that many times we are not even aware of. Doubt is often viewed as a defect or something we shouldn't have, even though all of us experience it on a daily basis. What if there was actually a purpose to it? On this week's episode, we'll unpack a bit more how doubt can actually point us to a deeper and more grounded place of belief even when life and circumstances might tell us otherwi...

#007 - Everyone wants connection. Yet it's the very thing that can seem elusive in a world where we are more "connected" than ever. On this week's podcast, we're exploring the topic of vulnerability. Of what does it mean to really allow others to see more of who we are and inviting others in. It's both exhilarating and terrifying. Yet somehow, deep down, we all know that this is what we were created for. Oft...

#006 - Loss is something that we often times encounter on an every day basis. It's easy for us to give ourselves and others permission to grieve the "big things" like the death of a friend or a family member. But grief comes in all shapes and sizes. On this week's podcast we spoke with Dr. Michael Vogel, a PhD licensed psychotherapist, about all the different ways that grief shows up in our lives and the importance ...

#005 - The topic of death isn't something we're always comfortable talking about. Like many things in life, it's easy to push it aside and even deny its existence. But perhaps there is a strange freedom, that the more we grow in accepting our own mortality, the more we are able to be all of who we really are. Not to mention learning to be present with those we care for. On this week's podcast, we'll be speaking ...

#004 - What if you weren’t just one thing? That you are a multi-dimensional human being filled with many different parts that make up the whole of who you are. C.G. Jung called these archetypes.

#003 - We often times think of an adventure as something that is outside of us, that we have to do all by ourselves. If we do muster up the courage, we frequently get bogged down trying to get it "right" which leads to giving up or not taking that first step at all. What if there's an alternative? An adventure that is waiting for each of us that we not only don't have to do alone, but that can actually be a whole lo...

#002 - All of us have mechanisms designed to protect us and keep us safe at all costs -- even when there is no threat. Our experiences, past hurts, and ideology often times form walls that create a deep need for certainty without ever stopping to ask if they are truly serving us. We'll explore in this podcast how some of those things got there in the first place and look at the deeper treasures that might be waiting for us on t...

#001 - Welcome to the Scarcity Complex Podcast! Host J. Wurster introduces the topic of scarcity as he explores some of the ways in which we often hold ourselves back. Have you ever wanted to express more of who you are, but are afraid? All of us have this inner critic that is constantly chattering telling us all the ways we might not be safe or fail.
