I have found that the best way to heal is to tell the truth of my own story and that the best way to help is to listen to another’s truth. Speaking our stories sets us free. Alive & Kicking is a podcast where I talk to people about their path of waking up to the truth of who they really are, what they really want and why they came here. What we learn is that the breakdowns we experience aren't failures; they're accelerators to the breakthroughs. And, what we thought of as our disasters was later revealed as our deliverance. When we willingly step into the open space of real and vulnerable dialogue, healing becomes possible for us all.
