WHY People Adore SARK

One reason SARK is so adored is her ability to tear down the walls we've built around ourselves and get to what she calls the 'marvelous messy middle' place of dealing with emotions in ways that are creative yet very direct. She repeatedly reminds us to be kinder to ourselves, to allow time and energy for self-reflection, to practice better ways to respond instead of to react when faced with challenges in life.
