One of my biggest unlearnings has been understanding what trauma is. Being able to see my experiences through that lens has been invaluable in better navigating the world.
Today's guest, Mira Rao, is an embodiment and resilience coach. In this episode, we dive into how she defines trauma, embodiment and resilience - words that are often taken in without an understanding of what they truly are.
We touch on the mechanistic culture we live in, the importance of in person connection, belonging and safety. I walked away from this conversation with a new understanding of what has shaped me. I think you might too.
