Mara Glatzel, MSW is an intuitive guide and energy healer for women yearning to belong to themselves.
She teaches women how to reclaim and celebrate their innate power and brilliance, and she believes that each and every one of us is the expert in our own experience of being a human on this planet.
Specifically, Mara works with women who feel ready to rise up, stand in their power, and recognize their gifts - women who have been caught in the cycle of feeling like they are are too much and not enough, simultaneously. In her work, Mara facilitates daily conversations about permission, truth, and celebration, and she creates a safe, cozy space to have deep, bullshit-free conversations about self-compassion, truth, and living with intention.
In this episode, Mara and I dig into the buzzword phrases "self-care" and "self-love" and talk about what it really means to care for yourself amidst the demands of our busy world, and how to build a loving relationship with yourself that's deep, real, and sustainable. Most poignantly, Mara makes the comparison that our relationship with ourselves requires the same amount of time and devotion as a relationship with anyone else, and she shares her experiences with allowing herself to take up space in the world and learning to feel comfortable and at home in her own skin - something that I definitely struggle with. She helps me begin to make sense of that struggle, and provides a wonderful amount of wisdom and story sharing. This conversation felt healing for me, and I hope the same is true for you!
