Life can be a beautiful journey, but each of us endures unique challenges, crises, and traumas. Healing can only come when we face these events, move through the pain, and discover the healing and authenticity on the other side.
Each Tuesday, join Victoria English Martin, Integrative Nutrition Coach, Fitness professional and Breast Cancer survivor and advocate. No matter what life may look like on the outside, we all carry scars. Join Victoria as she shares her own stories of adversity, along with how she is restoring and rediscovering herself. She’s creating a community of acceptance and support, where people can discuss their difficult times, hear from trusted experts, realize that every story deserves to be heard, and discover that healing IS possible.
Whether you are rocking, scraping by or sinking fast in this human experience that we all share, this podcast is for you! You can share your story, offer skillful insights learned in your professional or personal life, and be reminded that we are more alike than we are different.

Warm and welcoming
Thank you, Victory, for bringing difficult subjects to light in an authentic way. I listened to your conversation with Megan Griffith on Shame of Personalty. The sentence I liked the best was, “Show your scars, not your wounds.” There is a lot to unpack with those words. I am also thinking about my inner child workshops . . . You have given me a lot more to think about.
