What Is Your Anger Hiding?
You’ve been doing the work. Being present. Healing. Growing. What do you do if old anger, resentment and bitterness come up? Allow it- but what if it just feels overwhelming? This week we talk about how anger shows up in our lives and the different options we have as we release it. Anger is one of the most misunderstood emotions. It’s a powerful force for transforming shame into courage. In fact, on the emotional scale it’s really close to courage. Today we’re talking about how exactly anger works. Why does it show up and how can you process it instead of shutting it down? How can it motivate you instead of overwhelm? Christy references Cal Banyan's book- The Secret Language of Feelings Past podcast dealing with Shame/Guilt Past podcast explaining the Emotional Scale

Toxic Christianity with Jo Luehmann
This week we keep it light- dismantling White supremacy and toxic Christianity... Why? Because in order to truly heal, these subjects must be addressed. There’s a legacy of abuse and trauma inside the Christian church. Nobody wants to admit it- but saying it out loud is the first step to freedom. Saying it out loud is what dismantles it. Our guest today says it out loud. Everyday. And helps many people finally be able to have permission to feel what they have been feeling. She validates the experience of so many who feel left out, cast aside, ignored and “other” within the church. As well as those who leave and lose their community. “You heal. That’s the work. You heal because healed people encourage others and become safe spaces. And if we’re safe spaces that mean that we are healing agents.” Jo Luehmann There is so much goodness here! Enjoy and let us know what you think. Jo Luehmann: Instagram: Facebook: Twitter: Christy references Resmaa Menakem:

Slaying The Monster Under Your Bed with Christy and Cyrina

There’s certainly no shortage of things happening in the world today to give us some big emotions. Listen in to get a simple but effective process that we use with clients. This is such an important thing to practice. How we deal with our emotions determines our level or relationships, success and peace. After you listen let us know what you think!

GOD - What's in a word
G.O.D. - Join us as we unpack some of the baggage we carry around this powerful word.  Whatever you call God, seems to be at the center of healing for many people - that's why we're braving this episode. Taking a long look at the word G.O.D., and more importantly the reality the mere three letters represents- and many other words that represent the same reality- is crucial. It gives everyone the opportunity to step into more compassion, more freedom and more peace.   Some might say God is 'The Whole Point', but that word can carry so much trauma and pain that you've found a better word.  Listen in and let us know what God means to you.    Books:   The Universal Chris: How A Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For and Believe by Richard Rohr Nonviolent Communication: A Language Of Life by Marshall Rosenberg

Connecting With The Divine With Annie Francoeur
Annie Francouer joins us to discuss her surprise work channeling The Collective, a group of non-physical entities.   We get a behind the scenes look at how this all came about, what it’s like holding space to channel non-physical energy and how it has impacted her life.  Annie offers incredible insight into how she holds space for herself and her own growth amidst working with clients and being present to the loving energy of The Divine.    This episode is for the spiritually curious who are open to new ways to consider what lies beyond this physical world.   We also discuss the difference between The Divine and our human intuition.  We address fears and misconceptions about channeling and how our own belief systems play a vital role.   Seeking to improve her personal life, Annie studied Consciousness with a variety of great teachers, reading books, travelling to work with mentors and teachers she believed in.  At first, learning hands-on healing technique and the Breath of Compassion showed her this journey wasn’t a learning but a recollection of a wisdom that had been dormant in her. Her life improved tremendously simply by being more present in it, and trusting her own guidance and body. Although not once in those first years of her quest did she think she would become a therapist, gradually she found herself guiding people in their own integration and awakening to more Consciousness and Presence. Witnessing the needs around her, knowing more of what she truly wanted her life to be, Annie went on to gather the techniques she felt relevant to her own personal way of offering therapy. Annie lives in Chicoutimi, Canada, and is a certified advanced RTT therapist, a registered Biodynamic Craniosacral therapist, a coach of Presence, a channeler for The Collective, an author, and when the muse is playful, an illustrator.
