Women of Power and Spirit—Inspirational Interviews
Healing and Awakening In the Sacred Feminine
In the middle of the self-healing journey, sometimes you feel alone. Sometimes you want to give up hope. When those moments arise, I invite you to come here.
This interview series introduces you to women who have faced overwhelming challenges. By opening to their spiritual natures, they overcame the odds—chronic health conditions, rough relationships, profound grief, regrets, abuse, and more—to create lives of health and joy. They discovered the healing gifts of compassion, creativity, quiet moments, and their intuition—qualities of the Sacred Feminine—and necessary for lasting healing. You will find their stories to be authentic and life-inspiring. And you will hear many of them say, "if I can do it, you can too!" (Guys, you haven't been forgotten. I'll be finding and sharing your stories next!)
