Relationships as a Spiritual Practice for Healing


In this unfiltered episode of Can’t Be Contained, we’re diving deep into the healing waters of relationships. I’m not gonna sugarcoat things or tiptoe around the hard truths. Relationships can be a freaking mess, but guess what? They’re also one of the most powerful spiritual practices you can undertake.

I’m gonna pull back the curtain on sisterhood wounds, the power and necessity of conflict, and the imperative need to drop toxicity like it’s hot.

Buckle up, because we’re about to confront the self-work needed to build a thriving relationship, the phenomenon of “looping” in healing relationships, and the courageous conversation needed to heal even the most strained dynamics.

In this episode, I cover:

  • Why relationships are a spiritual practice
  • Where my sisterhood wounds stemmed from in high school
  • Why it’s good to have conflict in relationships
  • How to navigate conflict in a respectful and loving way
  • How to use discernment & boundaries when a person is genuinely toxic
  • What we need to work on if we want a relationship to thrive
  • The dark side of “healing relationships” with other spiritual people
  • How to recognize “looping” when processing childhood trauma 
  • How I healed a relationship with a team member (including the text I sent afterward)
  • A simple Brene Brown practice to start courageous conversations

This is real, raw, and unfiltered – it’s about to get uncomfortably honest. Are you ready? Then let’s dive in.
