Aundi Kolber: Self-Compassion, Healing from Trauma, and Trying Softer
Summary: For today’s episode I had the privilege of chatting with professional counselor and author Aundi Kolber about her new book Try Softer, as well as how we as moms can begin to pay compassionate attention to our bodies and heal from past trauma. Aundi’s way of honoring her wounds and owning her story is sure to inspire and encourage you, whether you have walked through your own trauma or are simply in the midst of processing your everyday motherhood experiences. In today’s episode, Aundi and I chat about: - the heart behind her work as a professional counselor and the inspiration behind her new book “Try Softer: A Fresh Approach to Move Us Out of Stress, Anxiety, and Survival Mode and Into a Life of Connection and Joy” - what it means to pay compassionate attention to our bodies and care for ourselves - how the way we perceive our experiences in motherhood can often come from our own childhood templates - honoring our wounds and “owning our story” through even the smallest and simplest of acts - how Aundi’s own personal experiences with trauma have intertwined with her faith - the ways our attachments to others can influence the way we perceive God Resources Mentioned: Try Softer: A Fresh Approach to Move Us Out of Stress, Anxiety, and Survival Mode and Into a Life of Connection and Joy: https://www.amazon.com/Try-Softer-Approach-Mode-Connection/dp/1496439651/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=try+softer&qid=1576981699&sr=8-1 Aundi’s Website: https://aundikolber.com/ Follow Aundi on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/aundikolber/ Get my FREE 10 Declarations for the Anxious Mama, your go-to guide for taking your anxious thoughts captive and replacing them with CONFIDENCE and PEACE: http://www.soulcareforthenewmom.com/declarations Learn more about my Mom Empowered coaching program and how I empower moms with the mindset + strategy to ditch their anger and break free from anxiety: http://www.soulcareforthenewmom.com/coaching Connect with me on Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/soulcareforthenewmom I want to hear from you!
