Grief Unveiled


Mar 7, 2019

Join this incredible conversation with Stephanie McAuliffe, coach and best-selling author, as we rework, reframe, and rewrite the grief narrative. This isn’t about forgetting - it’s about learning to understand ourselves and our experiences.

Stephanie shares with us her struggle of living amongst alcoholism for the majority of her life. Her own recovery from this trauma began when her coached asked her, “So how do you want to feel?” This question (which she didn’t know the answer to at the time - can you relate?) initiated a journey to understanding who she really was and what she wanted for her own life…instead of allowing labels, such as “survivor” and “victim”, to define her and limit her lived experience in the way forward.

In this episode, Stephanie shares a personal experience of profound grief, what she learned about the importance of taking time and space to turn gently inward to better understand all that she was feeling and how that initiated a complete transformation of her life, her sense of Self, and the trajectory of her life. Sarah and Stephanie talk vulnerability, self-love, tender curiosity, and unpack what it means to take responsibility for our experiences. This is a powerful exploration of empowerment and full of actionable steps forward available to anyone who listens.

 

Topics we cover include:

  • Why answering the question “how do you want to feel? can feel so impossible...
  • The up’s and down’s while healing from something traumatic...
  • Why things don’t just happen for us, no matter how hard we want it...
  • What to do with the guilt…
  • How to better understand our grief…
  • What is ‘radical responsibility?’
