Episode 110: “Living Centered and Embracing Change”
Featuring Angela Popplewell
Join Lindsey and Nicole for a conversation with Angela Popplewell, Co-Founder and CEO of non-profit 100cameras, an organization that equips youth worldwide with tools to process and tell their experiences in a way that impacts how they view themselves and their role in their community. We dig into the expansive nature of this work and the idea that every human – regardless of their background or circumstances – deserves the right to not just survive, but thrive. We talk about the power of storytelling and how important it is to not just to own your own narrative, but to engage with someone else’s. Angela shares some of the invaluable lessons she’s learned while leading this organization for the past decade and how vital it is to slow down, pay attention, listen, and embrace change in all aspects of life.

Life—it can be so overwhelming.
So often we move through it so swiftly and efficiently that we subconsciously begin to muscle through each day without even blinking. We don’t have time to get that workout in, let alone tend to our internal landscapes, so we bypass our trauma, sidestep our emotions, and keep it moving. Our daily actions have become completely disconnected from our purpose, our dreams, and our desires. It was all working…until it wasn’t. The cracks begin to appear.
The Living Centered Program is our response to this phenomenon—we want to help you quiet the noise and bring you back to center. Living Centered is an invitation home to your true self.
What is the Living Centered Program?
The Living Centered Program is a six-day workshop led by expert therapists who will guide you in exploring, deconstructing, and rewriting your narratives. Our beautiful campus and retreat-like setting allows you a break from your daily distractions and provides the clarity needed to re-establish congruence between your feelings, values, and actions so that you might live a more intentional, meaningful, and fulfilling life.
This world-renowned group experience is specifically designed to meet you right where you are. Our team will help you connect your past and present experiences and work through issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, codependency, loneliness, childhood wounds, family dysfunction, negative relationship patterns, or simply the stresses of daily life.
