Ep 2 | Information, Integration, and the Story of our bodies

In this episode we tackle the time it takes for true integration. Information is easy. Integration takes time. The story of our bodies, what we tell ourselves, and our experiences that shape our beliefs all come at a cost. Allison reveals a few key moments where that identity was challenged.

In This Episode You’ll Hear:

  • Information is easy to come by, but Integration takes time
  • Where we put our self worth
  • Aesthetic goals
  • Performance goals
  • Identity shifts (and shatters) that have happened throughout my life
  • Why this process is not linear, but a spiral
  • Your healing matters
