Womb Centered Healing
By Womb Centered Healing
Womb Centered Healing is a growing focus of healing arts practitioners who recognize the foundational importance of the womb. We all started out in our mother's wombs and were deeply influenced by our experiences there. Women and men all hold strong imprints and feelings in the womb space that often require much healing before we can become our full potential. Join me on this podcast as I discuss my own Womb Centered Healing offerings and interview a variety of people exploring this aspect of the healing journey. Photo credit: Nora Gonczi

Singing Humanity back into Communion with Fia Forsstromm
In this episode, Fia shares about her journey discovering the nourishing qualities of living in intimate community and how this inspired her to embark upon a Priestess training process in which she learned how we can connect to Mother Earth and each other, nurturing harmonious community through the power of our wombs. Fia's soul's mission is to transform and empower human consciousness through music, and to give you some other key aspects of why she might be interesting for your Podcast: she is an empowered empath, she is HSP and uses it to her advantage and turns it into her superpower (!), she is a self made artist, she has studied the traditions of her native Swedish land and works with shamanic techniques to heal her and those around her, she makes modern mantras relevant to this time-space-reality, she often gives tips and advice to her followers and fans on embodiment practices, she is practiced in tuning in and listening instinctively for cues and instructions on what to do and how to use her time and power on this earth for the greater good, she runs women's circles, she channels her songs, she's released 3 albums (minimally produced to compliment the grace of her voice + her guitar playing) that were completely crowdfunded... and she is only 26. The list goes on. Apart from being a very beautiful, vivacious and fun human being and talented artist with an angelic voice and inspirational music that uplifts and speaks, heals and empowers, Fia really is a shining example of a self made roaring young woman who sets a precedence and opens up the permission field for others to embody, express and embark on their own journey of self discovery.

Emotional Wellness with LaChelle Adkins
In this episode, LaChelle and I discuss how to recover from depression by developing our emotional wisdom. LaChelle's Bio: What is life like for a 49 year old woman who has been married to Jerome Adkins for 27 years, who is a retired Major in the United States Army and Pastor of World Fellowship of Jesus Christ and parents of 15 children? It has been adventurous to say the least. Raised as an only child, the transition to staying home and walking away from a career was a hard one to make. The anxiety of doing everything right, pleasing others and seeking validation led to a life of depression that resulted in 3 hospitalizations. However, that period of 13 years of battling depression led to a personal journey to find self. No longer liking the victim mindset, LaChelle came up with a strategy to overcome depression that she has named Fresh start. She is now an inspirational speaker and coach to empower women to be proactive in their mental wellness. Article about this Fresh Start approach: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fZhhrT_7QpEh-aeMOov5byPjZ2ot3wSBKFGVf-1vzZA/edit?usp=sharing

Womb Gifting Ecomony: What gives something true value?
In this episode I share more about my experiences of how we tend to value the healing services and trainings we receive. What gives something its true value? It has become clear in my 25 years as a massage therapist and my more recent exploration of online courses and services, that the price tag on something does not give it its value. My need for it and ability to implement and integrate the material into my life are better determinants of the value of something. And as I discover my own intrinsic creative gifting capacity, what I feel called to give to the world, it seems to increase my sense of self value, the value of what I am giving, my own needs and the importance that my giving is sustainable, that my needs are being met, and that I am inspiring and nurturing your intrinsic gifts to arise from within you to meet our collective needs and my needs in particular if we are to develop a sustainable relationship where I am giving to you through this podcast for example and you are supporting me in some way as well. Connect with me to further this discussion through my website: www.wombcenteredhealing.com.
