EP. 51 | Trauma-Informed Practices – An Interview with Kathleen Egan

“Stop crying, it’s not that bad”, said in the heat of the moment however its impacts may be lifelong.

Shame is a complex emotion that often originates from experiences and messages from childhood.

Shame can have profound effects on our self-esteem, mental health, and relationships.

Tune in as they explore:

  1. What shame is and how it differentiates from guilt
  2. How it manifests in the body both physically and emotionally
  3. The importance of validating a child’s emotions
  4. The idea of helpful shame versus harmful shame
  5. How yoga and mindfulness practices can support self-awareness and self-compassion

Shame is an emotion that we often push down deep, but it is through vulnerability and open conversation that we can truly overcome its grip on us.
