NEW Self-Inquiry Podcast Series---
Calling for Applicants

Opal’s podcast, The Appetite, is launching a new Self-Inquiry Series, where we will take the style of Opal’s PHP/IOP Self-Inquiry Group to the podcast airways. 

We are looking for folks interested in doing private journal self-inquiry work followed by receiving questions from the podcast group – just like in Opal’s Self-Inquiry Group (but recorded).  Participants can call in to the show or join us at the studio in the U-District. 

The Appetite will take measures to protect your identity, including using an alias, altering the sound of your voice, and editing out any identifying information disclosed post production. To be eligible, participants must actively be in individual therapy in order to have a place to process what may arise from the self-inquiry.
