About This Show
*Available in both audio and video in iTunes to satisfy your viewing/listening preference.*
Untaming ourselves as women in the 21st century is about questioning our programming and conditioning and reconnecting to our TRUE nature. Do we want certain things because we think we're supposed to or a person or institution (government, religion, school, etc) taught us that's "how things work". Once we can identify the belief systems we operate under and determine whether or not we actually want to live this way - we have CHOICE. This podcast introduces you to powerful and inspiring women who have already done this and are living meaningful lives on their own terms. We also help you navigate some of the most important processes to understanding yourself like how to listen to your body, set boundaries, have courageous conversations with love, and more. This is about moving, nourishing and loving all your bodies - physical, spirit, mind, emotional and soul.

6 days ago
Today's guest is returning for her second time on the show AND happens to be one of my best friends on the planet, Samantha Skelly. Sam specializes in helping women recover from binge eating and in this episode we dive into that as well as other binge and restrictive behaviors. We talk about the resistance and coping mechanism aspect of these behaviors, why we develop them in the first place, how to love the parts of ourselves that choose those things. We also got into radical transformation and what it actually means, takes, and requires (hint: we're not quick fix or band aid on bullet wound type people, we're talking LONG TERM, sustainable strategies here.) We also spent a lot of time talking about shame, so whether or not binge eating is a thing for you - you can apply what we cover in today's episode to a variety of contexts. Enjoy!
