Episode 06: From Post-Traumatic Stress to Post-Traumatic Growth with Jennifer Racioppi

Hello loves.

Jennifer Racioppi is a Duke-certified Integrative Health Coach, a board-certified Holistic Health Counselor, an astrologer, and an expert in the cycles of the moon just to name a few.

When she was just 18, Jennifer learned she had cancer survivor and, when I first her Jennifer’s story, I was brought to my knees. Even though she and I have had many conversations over the years about her story, it still honestly brings tears to my eyes every single I share it with others.

In this episode, Jennifer and I talk about the fact we’re both not going to having children and what that process has been like, what happens when people can’t show up for you on your health journey, how we go from feeling a victim to feeling like the wisdom we obtain from our health struggles made the journey worth it, how the moon cycles tie into the concept of the point of pain, and so much more!

The Pain Points We Explore In This Episode:

  • Why Jennifer began her work with astrology and the moon cycles
