A conversation on boundaries, the shame-hat and culture
with Marcela Widrig, Fierce Embodiment
Marcela is an international teacher, teaching around shame, boundaries, self-respect and the strength of women through the body. She does so in Australia, the US and Europe.
This conversation allowed us to explore the subject of integrity from many directions, looking at professional situations as well as personal ones. Thinking about what guilt and shame might have to do with our struggles sometimes and how to look for the want behind it.
And again we finish this conversation with an exercise for you to explore, if you want to try something that works for her.
