As we look into ourselves we seed the very transformations we desire to manifest in the world. So it’s worth noting, the deep work of healing our own wounds is often so ripe with potential to affect outward ripples of change.
In this episode, I connect with Shawna Murray-Browne, LCSW-C, a liberation-focused psychotherapist and healer in Baltimore, Maryland. We discuss why we can’t continue to use the same concepts, practices, and applications for all. Shawna shares how we all have an opportunity to recognize the needs of brown and black persons inside and outside of the therapy space
Earlier in this season on the Practice of Being Seen, Molly Merson, MFT, and I initiated a discussion around the “American collective unconscious”. It’s such a complex, layered subject. And though we covered quite a bit of ground in that hour of conversation, there still is so much more to explore. And so many questions to open up to possibility.
How does neurodiversity ripple into all facets of our lives and society at large? And when we talk about neurodiversity, are we all somewhere on the spectrum or is there a “normal”? The truth is, there is no normal. And that must mean that there is no one way to learn, no one way to communicate, no one way to view or be in the world.
Modern motherhood can look like many different things, but there tends to be a few connective threads that aren’t often discussed. One is that modern moms from all walks of life are juggling a lot in their day-to-day. Another is that many of us aren’t prepared for the dramatic internal shifts that motherhood brings about.
If you have ever aspired to step into a leadership role, or consider yourself a leader but want to do it better, you’re going to love this week’s conversation. I’m speaking with Traci Ruble, a therapist, public speaker, and CEO of multiple projects. We’re talking about redefining what leadership really means, how to truly listen, and Traci's unique process in getting onstage. It’s all about giving yourself permission, working through the imposter syndrome, and noticing when you feel most embodied.
