voices of your village Jun 25, 2020

 

 

Hey everybody! Today I get to hang out with Dr. Nicole LePera, who you may know as The Holistic Psychologist. Dr. Nicole joined me to dive deep into the world of reparenting your adult self. We answered some lovely questions posed by you villagers and chatted about the importance of doing this work. Without further ado, let’s get listening!

 

“A big part of the reparenting work here, in order to show up for kiddos and hold that space, is giving yourself the gift of allowing yourself to feel.”

 

To begin, let’s define what exactly we mean when we say “reparenting.” Reparenting is a process that we go through in adulthood to...

Welcome back to Voices of Your Village, today in episode 124 we are graced with the presence of Jasmine Bradshaw to discuss raising anti-racist children. Jasmine is the host of the First Name Basis podcast. She is a mama, and she is a beautiful teacher. Jasmine is someone who I have really loved learning from on this journey.

I am really grateful for the resources she provides and that she was willing to share her time to support our village on how to raise anti-racist children. We have a lot of work to do on this journey and I look forward to having you...

Processing Fear and Living Without Anxiety

voices of your village Apr 16, 2020

 

 

Hi Villagers! Welcome to another podcast episode and another beautiful week of being alive! I am excited to share this week’s episode with you all because, my friends, today we are talking about anxiety. This episode may bring some stuff up for you, you may have some feelings and I want you to hold space for them. I encourage you to allow these feelings to come up and to get curious about them. Feelings are communication. They are our body’s way of communicating things from our past and our subconscious to us.

 

Anxiety has never been higher in parenthood than it is right now.

 

To the extent that it has become a buzzword. So, let’s break it...

Healing Intergenerational Trauma

voices of your village Apr 09, 2020

 

 

Happy Podcast Day, Villagers! Wow, do I have a special episode for you this week! I had the absolute pleasure to sit down with my new friend and inspiration, Dr. Lynyetta Willis.

So now she works with smart, successful women and their families to help them break away from “stable misery.” 

Lynyetta’s journey starts back when she was very...
