How to overcome imposter syndrome in relational healing work

I don't know about you, but this is the dynamic I've deeply wrestled with as someone who has deeply struggled in relationships. I've never had a ministry pedestal of perfection to stand on and use as authority to do healing work. 

I often wondered how can I help others with relational trauma without ministering from the pedestal of my own relational success? Although I've amassed a whole bunch of certificates on healing, I really struggled with imposter syndrome in helping others. Have you ever felt this way? Like you couldn't really question the gatekeepers of authority in this complex world of meditation, trauma, and faith?

In this episode, I talk about:

- How to release that nagging feeling that you're not 'whole enough' to help others yet
- The difference between relational trauma healing and giving relationship advice
- Why it's time to rethink cultural appreciation in yoga therapy 
- How to show up as your most authentic self in yoga practitioner spaces
- Why this conversation and work is for such a time as this
- A better definition of yoga therapists that acknowledges transpersonal psychology
- How God-attachment is integral to embodied transcendence
- How inclusion and diversity can show up without medical reductionism or perennialism
- Why yoga should follow the recovery model of interfaith dialogue
And more!
