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!

Anne’s recent conversation with Movement Coach Olive Walton is an excellent reminder of how much mental anguish and physical damage the shame monster can inflict. It’s no surprise, then, that shame is a favorite weapon of both white supremacy and many in the fitness industry. Olive: “Conversations I've had recently with a lot of people is how their firsthand experiences with physical education were pretty negative”. 

We carry that negativity into adulthood, often pursuing movements our bodies couldn’t accommodate then shaming ourselves for failing to fit a painfully restrictive mold. Olive is here to help: “A big part of what I do is breaking down those barriers, reframing their perspective, working with a more positive, playful attitude.”


Olive Walton is a movement coach who shares movement practices from yoga to strength training, mobility to handstands, and leads with curiosity and playfulness for the body and mind.
