Dr. JoAnne Dodgson returns for another thoughtful discussion ranging from the need for safe spaces and safe people, to what happens when we hold onto all of our emotions.
JoAnne earned a doctorate in Counseling Psychology and Holistic Health. She's also a published author, college instructor, community activist, and an initiate into the Eastern Andes shamanic lineage of Ka-Ta-See.
The shamanic lineage of Ka-Ta-See has much for us to learn, including our interconnectedness, and remembering the beauty of who we really are.
