This was my favorite episode this season. It was a tough choice but it was the praise we received about the breathing examples that made me choose this one.
We also created a free handout that are available on Courtney's Website and Stephanie's Website about breathing that I'm sure you are going to love! Click on their link above for the freebie!
This also starts the 12 days of Christmas for me, where I chose 12 of my favorite episodes this year, plus an extra 2 shows as a gift to you. Be on the lookout for the next 12 days!
In this episode, we speak to returning guest Stephanie Simpson and a new guest but a great friend of mine, Courtney Romanowski. We discuss a variety of topics including storytelling, as well as the mind-body-spirit connection and how we can use the tools we have at our disposal, including our breath, our body, and our ability to be. There is also an amazing discussion on our narrative and how this effect us in so many ways.
