    Dealing with Rape and Trauma with Clare Williamson

    Dealing with Rape and Trauma with Clare Williamson

    On this episode we are joined by Clare Williamson (https://cwfullcircle.com). Clare, now in her 30's, pregnant with her third child, is glowing, radiant and vivacious. Yet 14 years ago she was raped while travelling around South America after being drugged, and for the following decade this affected every aspect of her life.  
    At times life-changing events happen to us, and the pain and trauma are so scary that we bury it deep within us.
    But what are the consequences of this?
    Can we mask the pain and indeed be who we are here to be?
    WARNING!!! When we bury things deep, they tend to manifest themselves in various ways. 
    Upon returning home, Clare planned to seek help, tell her parents and receive counselling; instead, she clammed up, didn't want to upset anyone and stayed quiet.
    Clare didn't face her pain; rather, she decided to play it safe, she threw herself into life, climbed the career ladder and lived a life that wasn't truly in line with who she was.
    After hitting rock bottom, Clare had a lightbulb moment and decided things needed to change - and thus began her journey of healing and regaining her power back!!
    Today Clare is an inspirational coach who offers her clients clarity, structure and guidance with rave reviews. Clare believes we can all heal and that we don't have to live with the pain of a life-altering ordeal like rape or abuse for ten years, five years or even a year! That we have the choice to take our power back immediately or not.
    Clare's tips:
    1. Feel the fire of intention - make the decision to create change.
    2. Be forgiving of yourself, treat yourself with kindness, love and respect
    3. Create the vision of who you want to become and work towards that you.
    Here to tell her story and share her wisdom, we are so pleased to welcome Clare Williamson.
    Find Clare on her website https://cwfullcircle.com or on Instagram cw_full_circle.
    With huge thanks to Clare!
    Love, light and peace

    The Grief of losing our 3 Precious Triplets with Jane Weekes

    The Grief of losing our 3 Precious Triplets with Jane Weekes

    How do we survive such suffering and loss?
     
    Losing a child is known to be one of the worst forms of suffering in life. The pain involved in losing three children at once is incomprehensible, but it is the tragic story of Jane and Martin weeks who lost their triplets in 2012,  aged two, in a fire in a shopping mall in Quarter.
     
    Their courage and bravery to endure such loss is remarkable, as they faced the shock and horror in a country that wasn't their home. In addition as their world turned upside down, they had to endure national and international news reporters, social media - as well as the trauma - of injustice and negligence. Remarkably to this day they have never received an apology.
     
    Join us on our podcast as Jane shares her day by day journey of survival, her courage to be vulnerable, a discussion on forgiveness and her remarkable insight and wisdom that she shares with others who have suffered the loss of a child.
     
    With huge thanks and gratitude to Jane.
     
    Love, light and peace

    How do we carry on when we know our world has ended?

    Join us  as we discuss with Will his journey through dark times, his vulnerability in admitting pain, and his honesty in reminding us that there is no given formula - or text book rule to follow when life hits us hard.
     
    Will’s story is a moving account of one mans struggle to cope and raises issues which many of us face today - what happens when life doesn't go to plan and you lose the love of your life?
     
    With huge thanks to Will
     
    Love, light & peace

    The Journey to the Inner Self - ManPODS with Mark Mandeno

    Welcome to ManPODS - a podcast series to connect and inspire men. Addressing topical issues and quashing the stigma that men shouldn't cry, men can't talk about their feelings and men won't be vulnerable - because we all need help, we all need support, and you are not alone. Together we will positively impact mental health.
    On this episode we are thrilled to have with us, Mark Mandeno, the owner and director of Adventure Works - an outdoor education centre.
    While teaching his kids to surf in 2015, Mark fell off a surfboard into shallow water and received a spinal cord injury.
    Losing the use of 85% of his body, Mark has travelled an incredible INWARD journey to discover his purpose and identity - seperate from the outward journey that has previously directed his life.
    What does suffering and pain look like?
    How do the thoughts in our head direct the outcome of our life?
    How can we possibly master those thoughts and then change them, so that we can not only survive adversity and conflict, but learn to live fully whole and free lives, removing constraint and lack?
    Jo and Sue chat with Mark and learn about his profound inward journey. Mark has much to teach us all, on our search for truth, compassion, gentleness and ultimately love.
