    Pride Month and More

    What’s in store for summer? On this episode of Awaken Your Wise Woman, host Elizabeth Cush talks about pride month and offers a guided self-care meditation.
    “I am a firm believer that we all come into this world as humans who deserve respect and safety.” 
    — Biz Cush
    Happy Pride Month! Whether you are an activist, a therapist or a caregiver, you are putting yourself out there to support others—and that’s awesome. But when we focus on the needs of others, we can easily overlook our own needs for care and compassion.  Fortunately, there are simple things we can do to show ourselves some love and kindness. In this episode of Awaken Your Wise Woman, host Biz Cush, LCPC, a licensed professional therapist, founder of Progression Counseling in Annapolis, Md., and a life coach for highly sensitive women, shares her thoughts about the importance of Pride Month and talks about how the podcast will celebrate Pride Month in upcoming episodes. She also offers a guided meditation to help you get grounded and get back in touch with your body and honor all that it does for you. It’s a great way to take a self-care break before you move on to the rest of your day.
