On Loneliness, Connection and Finding Meaning in the Darkest Days

Scott the Painter (Scott Erickson) is one of Beyond Well’s favorite guests, both for his refreshing candor regarding his personal suffering but also because his visual art, stories and his performance art resonate with tens of thousands of young people who are tired of staring at their phones and want to find deeper connection.

In this episode, we talk with Scott about loneliness versus spending time alone, connecting during the darkest days of winter, and Scott’s personal wellness routine.
