Healing Out Lao'd explores Lao diaspora storytelling, healing, and tools for sustainability. For my POCs, reframing intergenerational narratives of trauma begins with dismantling and rebuilding how we see our individual and collective purpose and value today and everyday. Choose joy!

padaekB ,

LOVE THE VULNERABILITY!!!!

I loved the growth from SZN 1 to SZN 2!!! Amarachi has a unique way of piecing together the “fragmented” whole and I love that she brings her intimate therapy sessions into the mix! It takes a lot of strength to show up like that, knowing that the world can attack you but I’ve never felt more connected to this podcast, work, and AMARACHI! Thanks for your contribution to the 🌎 and allowing these types of stories to be told🗣🗣🙌🏽🙌🏽🎶🎶🔥🔥♥️♥️
