008 - "Overcoming Adversity - From Pain To Purpose” w/ Mike Govoni
Play • 1 hr 25 min

Welcome to my first Solo show of The Healing Beyond Recovery Podcast! In this episode, I share intimately about some of my personal struggles and triumphs such as: healing from childhood trauma, addiction, chronic illness and how it all led me to find my life purpose to help others. My journey includes experiencing trauma before birth, to getting sober and  backpacking nine countries. At the end I was so ill that I couldn’t even function. At my breaking point, I was borderline suicidal and forced to go inward to practice meditation which led to a profound spiritual experience and healing.
