185. How Healing the World Starts with Healing Yourself. This is Emotional Wellness with Brittany Piper
Manage episode 264184425 series 1429114
My guest today is one of my most cherished friends, Ms. Brittany Piper. You might remember her from episode 118 which I called “A LESSON IN SAYING THANKSFORGIVING US PAIN TO TURN INTO PURPOSE (AND TO TUNE US INTO WELLNESS)” -- it dropped on Thanksgiving, hence that brilliance I came up with right there. Brittany is a powerhouse speaker, an international activist, trauma specialist and a healing + wellness coach. She’s fits the bill of the most “practice what she preaches” er as she’s herself has overcome not just one, but many of the most horrific events any of us could imagine: sexual assault, eating disorders, the death of her brother and alcoholism and uses her experience to help others harness their hardships and grow through whatever trauma we go through so we can do amazing things. I’m going to cry just reading this intro.
Britt and I chatted a few weeks ago as she ate a humongous granola bowl, sitting in her closet at 36 weeks preggo! The day this airs is actually four days past her baby boy’s due date.
I planned this to be kinda a lighthearted chit chat about life being pregnant in a pandemic la la la but it quickly became a profoundly moving exploration into how to be strong and tender at the same time. I quickly shifted focus to grilling her on ways she suggested we work through trauma and thrive. Umm, hello timeliness. Thank you so much for lending me and my show your ears today and I hope this chat hits you right where you need it. As I love to say, the world is better when we’re our best, and really, we can’t care for others if we’re not caring for ourselves.
