Today’s guest is Michaela Boehm who was on the podcast almost three years ago and A LOT has happened since the last time we spoke. She just published a book – The Wild Woman’s Way and she lost her entire home and property in a huge fire last year.
My favorite thing about this conversation was the major emphasis on the application that’s possible when someone is devoted to deep practice and cultivating the skills to be an integrated, resilient person, even if they’re sensitive.
We talked about that and how she was able to move through the grief, shock, and trauma of losing her home and property. We also talked about the difference between cultivation and devotion which I really appreciated because this is something that people often overlook in the self-help, spirituality and personal development worlds.
People want tools and practices but not everyone is willing to show up with the discipline required. To many the word “discipline” brings up a lot of resistance and in this chat we explored why it doesn’t have to.
Enjoy and share!
