In this week’s episode Leslie M. Browning speaks with Joanna about: learning to move forward with traumatic experiences; healing is a journey; making meaning out of the loss; connected in vulnerability; the healing magic and beauty of the American Southwest; the solace and nurturance of the “wild silence”; embracing our complexity; the daily practice of radical acceptance; poetry and memoir, soul and life journey; sharing our stories in the radical authenticity community.
