Conversations With a Wounded Healer

Who’s a wounded healer? It’s any one of us who works in a caring profession and is bravely doing their own work, while helping others. My goal is to share the parallel journey we as healers walk along with our clients and how we attend to our own humanity while caring for others.

My podcast is about conversations and community building, what we can learn from each other, and how we can help heal each other. We’re cultivating a space where we celebrate vulnerability, authenticity and “showing up.”

It’s a place to meet people I think will inspire you, help you heal and grow – and who you can relate to at the same time.

I’m inspired by C.G. Jung’s “wounded healer” concept, where the healer’s own hurt that gives the measure of his own power to heal.

Another one of my heroes, Brené Brown, puts it best: “Mindfully practicing authenticity during our most soul-searching struggles is how we invite grace, joy and gratitude into our lives.”

Together, I hope this marriage of vulnerability and professionalism will inspire and entertain you...enjoy!

I'm Jon Brockelman. I'm an oncology certified registered nurse at a large academic medical center here in Chicago. I've spent most of my 20 year career working with oncology patients, and I've recently started a master's degree in Healthcare Quality and Patient Safety at Northwestern University. I'm on Facebook and LinkedIn, I'm on Insta as well, but I'm not so insta-savvy. Brené Brown says that when we share our stories, we heal the world. I think of that each time I share mine.

Jon and Sarah discuss the change that one person can make in the world, the balance of nursing as an art/science, and how perfectionism feels harder to heal from than addiction, being gay and being HIV+.
