“If I could go back and tell myself “if it doesn’t feel right, speak up.” But it’s really hard to speak up when you’re under the influence of some authority. I learned a lot from getting duped, being aware of it, and then learning to say: ‘I’m going to think about asking myself before I immediately look outward.”

In this podcast Kristina and Caitlin discuss:
– how some healers and spiritual businesses can disempower / manipulate people, and how to identify if it’s happening to you
– what integrity in the industry looks like and how to find a good healer / coach / therapist
– the stigma against medication and mental illness, and why taking medication is not a “cop out” and does not make you “less spiritual.”
– why on a spiritual journey, it’s always important to listen to yourself first
