Ep13: Christmas: Dealing With Family Triggers + Ethical Consumption! (episode from Sacred Leaders)

Episode Summary

It is that time of the year… And I get asked very often how to deal with family healing and generational healing and also how to consume more ethically. I feel like Christmas is the perfect time to bring both of those topics up since consumerism and family time tend to be such a big part of this celebration!

In this episode I dive into consumerism and different ways to slowly transition into a more aligned way of living and buying; how to deal with the challenges and triggers that may come up when spending time with your relatives… And how to take your personal healing and FREEDOM to the next level!

***DISCLAIMER: I recorded this episode with a cold and sore throat which is why you may hear a difference in my voice!
