Candice launches the Summer Season of TDP with a continued exploration of the 3rd key of courageous self-expression – vulnerability. She opens the episode with a story from her past and a peek into an intimate therapeutic breakthrough. She speaks about how social conditioning shapes our relationship to emotional expression, and the role that privilege (or lack thereof) plays in the development of emotional resilience. She illustrates the primary difference between coaching and therapy through story, and candid exploration of unresolved trauma and the role it plays in our ability to self-regulate expression. And then finishes up the episode with a crash course on the nervous system, offering tools and insights that will support you to ‘do’ vulnerability with greater presence, integrity, and grace. (DISCLAIMER: Some listeners may find the opening content of this particular episode triggering. Listen at your own discretion.)
