Show Notes Chapter Markers

This is our Book Club episode where we discuss a chapter from our current book choice: Women Who Run With the Wolves by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. In this episode, we discuss chapter 13 “Battle Scars: membership in the scar clan”.

Summary:

This chapter is an exploration of shame and focuses on the pain of keeping secrets bottled up and on the powerful healing that can come from sharing our secrets with a trusted person, so we can move from isolation to becoming a member of the scar clan. This chapter is for you if you feel isolated and lonely, because you feel like no one could really understand what you’ve been through. It’s for you if you keep your pain bottled up, without sharing it with others. It’s also for you if you want to find a simple path to move past the shames in your life.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How it feels to be stuck in old shame
  • Why it's so hard to share our shameful secrets with others
  • The freedom that comes when we share our secrets with the right person
