70: Con-Trick

By thirdspace

Self-deception, our attempts to stay in control of everything, and the trouble that comes from all of it. Our source this week is an extract from a piece published on Justin's blog, We use it to launch into a conversation about self-deception, trying to stay in control of circumstances and experiences (and the cost of both), the trouble that comes from our attempts to manage our own image, the wisdom and delights of the enneagram as a way of understanding personality patterns, and the gifts of laughing joyfully at ourselves and our complexity. As you'll see, we have a lot of fun in this conversation as we tackle some big topics about being human. Turning Towards Life is a weekly live 30 minute conversation hosted by Thirdspace in which Justin Wise and Lizzie Winn dive deep into big questions of human living. You can find the source text and more information on this conversation at and find more, including details about how to join us live, on our website Photo by The Creative Exchange ( on Unsplash (
