Nadine facilitated a space that was liberating, empowering, and informative to this independent scholar with a severe case of imposter syndrome. I came in not knowing if I had any place in the workshop, and I left with new (brief, accessible, and effective!) meditations to practice in my work, new conceptual frameworks for approaching my work, insight into the mechanisms of my own alienation from academia, and perhaps most importantly more confidence in my pursuit of my research interests. Not only do I feel inspired to persist in my work, I am actually excited to forge ahead knowing that I am truly not alone in my experience. Thank you, Nadine!!!
