Trauma - Let's Just Take A Look

In the first episode of our series on trauma, we discuss what it can look like, to just look at and acknowledge the shit that has gone down in your past.

Surviving, Thriving, and Embracing Where You Are

Today we start with a FB post in First Wakeups Inner Circle and then just see where it leads us.

Big Dreams, Small Steps

Amber and I record a second episode 23 after the first one we recorded fell flat to our own expectations.

Audio quality is important to us and we are working diligently to figure out how to clean up background noise from future episodes. Questions?? join the FB group "First Wakeups Inner Circle".


Racial Stereotypes and Other Things

We start this episode with Racial Stereotypes and then it goes a little bit everywhere! We love it and hope you love it too. Trigger warning as we do talk about and get pretty deep into some racial stereotypes. Nothing over the top in our opinion so consider yourself warned anyways.
