009: Recreating a life with shaky, courageous hands with Emily Ann Peterson

In 2013, Emily Ann Peterson was diagnosed with a degenerative neurological hand tremor, which forever altered her two-decade livelihood as a cellist/cello teacher. In the weeks and months that followed, she was troubled by two big question, “Who am I if not a cellist?” and “How do I make a living!?” Refusing to lose her life’s love of expression, she knew she’d have to be brave. She set out to research and learn from others on what it means to be brave. This would eventually lead her to write a book called Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous. The book seeks to help people from all walks of life understand what bravery really is – allowing them to step into it by creatively using vulnerability, imagination and improvisation. Her goal with her writing, podcast (it’s called Bare Naked Bravery) and School of Bravery is to inspire a global resonance and magnanimous community through the marriage of art and whole-person development.

In this episode, Emily Ann shares of the impact this diagnosis had on her sense of self and her career, and the lessons of bravery she learned along the way. Join us as we discuss:

 

  • Hearing about her hand degenerative neurological hand tremor through the sound of her cello for the first time
  • Needing to hear someone tell the truth that “This is bad.” and “It is going to be life-altering.”
  • How the diagnosis disrupted her identity, career and finances
  • Beginning the long process of making sense of the change, starting with a 6-week artist residency
  • The work to untangle your identity from what you do: from cellist to songwriter to artist to having to be really brave as a human
  • Curiosity about the question, “What is bravery?” led to a research about it
  • Reading years of journals and burning them: a physical act of letting go and acknowledging their gift of expression
  • The Impermanent Writing Practice: 30-minutes of daily journaling to “get it out” (followed immediately by “Ctrl-A delete”)
  • “Letting go” and a moment of intense grief
  • The importance of connection and community as a bravery building tool
  • Learning to holding your future with an open hand
  • Three core elements of courage: it’s contagious, it’s worth it, and someone needs you to be it
