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!

Lauren has spent the last 15 years standing for justice and equity as a teacher and middle school Principal on the Westside of Chicago. Her passion and commitment undermine systematic oppression, ironically, became an awakening to the unconscious oppression inside herself. Lauren considers herself an Oracle, Truth Teller, Healer and Coach who uses her own path to support the conscious evolution of humanity.

Lauren is not a healer, but a waker! She and Sarah discuss the ideas of awakening and transformation; the systems of oppression that perpetuate bias, prejudice and racism; and ultimately focus on what is beautiful, not what is broken.

Let’s be friends! You can find me in the following places...
