In today’s podcast Hannah and Cecilia take time to reflect on what we have learned from recent podcast guests.
One of the joys of our Twisting the Plot podcast is getting to meet some truly incredible people. Whether they are caregivers, educators, artists, mothers, aunts, friends…they all have a story to tell.
What we had not anticipated is how listening to these stories would affect us.
This week we thought we would talk about a few recent conversations that have done just that.
First, we discuss how Maria Hodermarska, a professor at NYU, taught us about letting go and, through the process, continuing to grow. Then there was Erin Pace, an embodiment coach, who asked us, What if you are perfect just the way you are? Finally, we ponder about our conversation with Nikki Giovanni, poet, activist and teacher who leads by example, speaking her truth with honesty, grace, and dignity. Among the many things, Nikki taught us is to marvel at the granularity of life.
We also share how the women in our Twelve in Twelve Program remind us about the importance of community, and the power of being seen and heard.
Come reflect with us.
We are filled with gratitude for all the women, and all the stories.
