Rachael Maddox is not only today’s guest, but someone I’ve recently got to know better and a dear friend of Michael’s. That’s actually the reason you’re getting to enjoy her on the show today – the last time they hung out she gifted him a copy of her book. I happened to get to it before he did and just a few chapters in I was Facebook messaging her to come on and talk specifically about healing from sexual trauma as it’s something A LOT of my wild soul women face. I learned a ton and appreciate her loving nature, personal healing journey and fierce desire to serve now from the other side of things.

As this can be a super sensitive and triggering topic, please please reach out to either of us if you need any support during or after listening to this one.

About Rachael Maddox:

Rachael Maddox is a trauma resolution educator, coach and guide who dedicates her days to helping women who’ve experienced sexual trauma unshame and reclaim their pleasure, power and wholeness. She recently published her first book, Secret Bad Girl, where she tells the story of her own unshaming and reclaiming–of her wildness, her sensuality, her shadows and her light. Emerging now on a fierce mission to help as many women as possible who’ve experienced trauma, Rachael offers one-on-one support, courses, and a mastermind for women who are ready to dance hard with life.
For fun, Rachael writes songs on her ukulele, swims naked as often as possible, and lays quietly under trees.
