Listen now
From time to time, every one of us makes mistakes and bad decisions. Once we recognize what happened, it can often be hard to regain our self-trust. Kelly Thiel joins us for this conversation to share her own experience of losing self-trust and how she's been able to work on rebuilding it. Her story inspires us to let go of resentment and anger to move forward; to move on from perfectionism and mistakes to find trust in ourselves once again. On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity: How discernment relates to self-trust in Chinese Medicine What some of the conditions were that led Kelly to the NXIVM cult The difference in the feelings of evolution versus things that are actually dangerous to us Why the answers we seek always come from inside ourselves How she defines enlightenment for herself now Kelly Thiel is an accomplished voice actress, author, speaker, consultant, and spiritual seeker. She practices yoga, does Pilates, and and has worked with spiritual healers around the world on her personal journey towards enlightenment. She is also a former member of an abhorrently abusive cult called “NXIVM”, which has been the subject of multiple documentaries on HBO, STARZ, and A+E Kelly has survived and reckoned with her trauma such that she now helps others conquer theirs. Kelly is set to release her much anticipated second book in 2021.
