Sam is an inspiration, a three times cancer survivor who founded Sam’s Spaces, a network for people finding their way after cancer. After our fateful meeting (I share the story on the show!) I was so blown away by Sam’s story that I interviewed her for my book Freedom Seeker and was wholly moved by her strength and light.
I’m delighted to have Sam on the show today to talk more about the healing process after experiencing trauma. We go deep into why we need to make radical self-care at the forefront of everything we do.
If you or someone you know is going through or has experienced a life changing trauma of any kind in their lives, this one is for you.
