Dr. Tanmeet Sethi:
“All of us deserve and choose joy and seeking it will find your power. It’s not the reverse. We don’t do things to find joy. We find joy to find power, connection and belonging. All of us deserve that.”
Take a listen or view the ZOOM of our new The Women’s Eye Podcast with guest host and bestselling author Laura Munson. You may have caught her on TWE when she chatted with Stacey Gualandi about her book Willa’s Grove and her top-ranked Haven Writing Retreats in Montana. She gathers writers at all levels, helping them find their authentic voices and craft their stories in the way only they can.
Her fascinating guest on this podcast is Tanmeet Sethi, a board-certified Integrative Family Medicine physician, popular TEDx speaker, and author of Joy is My Justice who says joy is possible for everyone and has the potential to heal.
Tanmeet spent over twenty-five years practicing primary care, working in global trauma and community activism. Her emphasis in her new book is to show that people can reclaim joy despite what obstacles the world may put in front of them. She describes how to find joy vs. happiness.
“Joy and happiness are so different. Happiness is so nice to have but it isn’t expansive enough. Joy allows us to touch moments of love, power, connection and belonging. Happiness is a solid, it’s fixed; joy is a liquid flowing in and out.”
Tanmeet and Laura also discuss:
- How she sees joy through the lens of justice.
- How she found a new way to fight through the pain of her young son Zubin’s incurable diagnosis.
- How you can rise up in the face of suffering.
- Her definition of true resilience.
- How gratitude can be a powerful tool for healing.
Enjoy the podcast with Laura and Tanmeet. There is more to discuss at a future date. As Laura said, “Tanmeet walks the walk and she does it with tenderness, grace and expertise. We could keep talking forever.”
