Conversations about trauma and healing from two women who are doing the work.

The scars of childhood trauma don’t fade away. The roots go deep. This trauma can wrap tentacles around every aspect of life, pushing and pulling us according to its will. These stories of harm have been hard wired into our brain. Yet, we don’t see the connection of childhood trauma and current day pain because it has been with us as far back as we can recall. We don’t realize this trauma is the source of our struggle to feel peace, joy, and love. Instead, we live with emptiness, loneliness, anxiety and shame.

The wounds of your trauma can be healed. It’s a process and we hope our podcast can help.

Such an amazing g podcast

Sher and Kandace do such an amazing job at touching on complex childhood trauma and what it means, but more importantly, finding a way to heal. I’m grateful for their guidance on this healing journey.

You’re so kind to me!

2 years ago, I got to meet Sher through his son, Ryan. I stayed at Sher’s house and I got to share my life to her. Her kindness during I stayed with her and after, still impact to my life. I told her, I have a dry skin problem (I come from Thailand), a few weeks later I received a package from her with lotions for dry skin. A week after I came back to my state, we faced my childhood trauma, Sher’s kindness helped me go through that hard time. Thanks so much again. I love your podcast and your kindness 💗💗
