Healing Power of Boundaries in the Parent/Adult Child Relationship
Join us in this conversation looking at boundaries from the vantage of our own experiences as we transitioned into adulthood. We were sure to also remember the perspective of the parent. Right on time for the holiday season, this episode includes some of our thoughts about changes in traditions as well! Stop by our conversation for some encouragement and empathy because when it comes to navigating these boundaries, it can be a bumpy ride.
Many of us have experienced the difficult transition in the relationship between parent and adult child. This is the child who has now grown into adulthood; or at least is attempting to do that. Dynamics in that process can make it difficult to navigate the changes needed for a healthy relationship in this new way. We offer some tips and practical ideas about the ins and outs of learning to honor our parents while growing into adulthood. On the flip side, we offer a supportive perspective to parents who are having a hard time letting things change.
Whether you are a parent of an adult, a single adult, a married adult this episode has something in it for you to consider!
Maybe you will find a place to start a conversation with your family and with us too!! We welcome thoughts and feedback about your own experiences and how this resonates with you. Our hope is to help to bring families closer by encouraging mutual respect , communication, and flexibility.

Healing Power of Having Agency Over Internal Boundaries
In this episode we engage in a healing conversation about being aware of what is going on in our inner world. Being able to identify emotions and thought processes that drive us to sometimes act out in ways that we don't actually want to is a step toward inner health. Awareness and Spirit led self leadership allow us to have agency, or awareness with choice, over how we respond. Practicing the art of getting curious and having compassion toward our inside experience can help us figure out how we want to intentionally engage in the world around us.
Do you ever find yourself acting in a way you don’t like? Saying things you don’t mean because you got overcome by emotion? Instead of emotions throwing you around or shutting you down, you can become more skilled at helping yourself through the process.
Join us for this thought provoking discussion and be sure to subscribe for more episodes to come!

Healing Power of Developing Skills In Boundaries
Have you ever thought or said "I am not good at boundaries?" It is a process to learn how to set healthy boundaries. We know that journey first hand! With sharing some trial and error in our own lives, let our stories and what we have learned encourage you.
Take time with us this season to experience healing through the practice of skillfully applying boundaries in your life. To start off, this first episode is all about what boundaries are, different types of boundaries, and why they are important. We reflect on just how much boundaries can positively or negatively affect our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We offer real life examples to help you start considering how to apply boundaries in your every day life. Maybe you have tried boundaries before but seem to have a hard time figuring out how to use them in a healthy way. This will be a valuable resource for you!

Healing Power of Compassion in Redemptive Time
This is an exciting topic filled with hopeful and practical healing guidance. Some of our most impactful experiences get us ‘stuck’ in the way we think, or the way our body reacts to surrounding stimuli, or the way we defend ourselves, or attack others. One incredible aspect of human memory is that it is experiential in nature. At any time we can go back to an experience and receive for ourselves compassion, comfort, assurance, even guidance that we did not have during the actual real time experience that could have happened last week or even 20 years ago. Find out what has been holding you back and discover within the concept of redemptive time the compassion your younger self needs. Healing of memories is a powerful tool in therapy and we believe this episode may just unlock for you a world of growth!
Such an authentic and great podcast. Love the boundaries episodes! I’ve been learning so much! Thank you!!!
