    The Power of Storytelling - Episode 31

    The Power of Storytelling - Episode 31

    Welcome back to The Power of Storytelling!
    Phoebe and Ilyse - thank you for sharing your stories, your words, and your journey with all of us.
    This month’s episode reminded me that we’re never alone in what we experience, and there’s a collective healing that comes when we tap into our vulnerability and share our stories. A moment in connection - where we share our smiles, our hearts, our truths, our fears, and our joys - has the ability to heal not only ourselves, but also heal others. Know that you are exactly as you should be, and every step on your journey serves as inspiration, and serves a purpose.
    It’s truly my honor to share the stories and provide the space here to share a little bit more about the change makers behind these words. I encourage you to check out Phoebe and Ilyse after you listen to this week’s new episode.
