Zen Mama & The Addict
  • Mary Streeter
21 episodes
Our stories of struggle and hope are powerful and they connect us. When we can step out of our shame and allow ourselves to get real and be vulnerable with all the emotions of the struggle, we realize we are not alone. It becomes this gateway to healing. Zen Mama and the Addict is a community of sharing through the lenses of compassion and understanding. We share stories of struggles, resiliency and hope. We hold space for honest conversation as we address challenging issues - the shit we don’t want to talk about- and explore approaches to healing so that we can find the light and shine it out into the world. We can’t stop the waves of struggle, but together we can learn how to surf.
