THIS WEEK'S EPISODE! - SEASON 3 EPISODE 2 - UNTAMING: HEATHER BEDELL
UNTAMING: Stories of young women finding meaning and purpose through intentional living. These women speak openly and honestly about their lived experiences and how that has awakened in them the need to change old ways of being and living today, now.
From motherhood to working in corporate America, from being a women in the male dominated world of athletics to working in mental health and being a voice of change for future generations.
These conversations are with women finding that authentic, untamed truth within and speaking up and out. They want a place at the table of change and they are struggling to find their way just like the rest of us AND they are doing it, despite the fear, uncertainty and shame that is universal us all.
Listen to this series and you will find rawly relatable, heart touching, and frustrating experiences of sexual assault, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, sexism. You will hear courage, hope, joy AND the struggle to understand, un-splinter and redirect.
May this awaken a part of you that may be settling for a life less than what aligns with your truth. May it let a little light in to shine on what is possible today, in this incredible time of change. Or maybe you can take a deep exhale knowing that there are women out there doing the work this world needs and as an elder you have opened the doorway for that possibility.
