Part 1: Who is the Soulful Chainbreaker?

Transmuting Intergenerational Trauma Through The Creative Principles of Fire

This is a story about what it means to be the one who steps out of line. The one willing to be the weak link in the chain.  The one willing to disrupt and disobey; to embrace disruption as a portal and disappoint some of the expectations held for us (and the people associated with them) in the service of another future. And how a shift in imagination turns our deviance into a dedication to life, love, and liberation. This requires courage, fierce love and a fire (in the belly) that sustains our commitment.

In this podcast there are reflections on becoming the soulful chainbreaker, and what it might mean to and for you.
