Episode 118 “Living Centered at the Intersection of Spirituality and Shame”
Featuring Caroline Bravo, LHP-MHSP
Shame—we are all familiar with it. It can often take up residence in us, staking its claim and attempting to divert our attention and steal our power. Unfortunately, this often leads to great suffering. But what would it look like to notice our shame before it robs us of our joy? What if we tended to it? What if we gave it care and attention and allowed it to become our teacher? This week, Hannah and Nicole are delighted to sit down with Onsite Guide and therapist, Caroline Bravo, to unpack the intersection of shame and spirituality. In this conversation, Caroline speaks from a place of deep wisdom and shares practical tools to help us generate self-compassion and fortify the spiritual self on the path to healing.

“If the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him.”
– Baldwin, James
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.
