the healing power of humor

Becoming a spiritual speaker saved my life. I had to experience my own healing journey — gathering tons of tools along the way — before I could begin teaching others how to embark on theirs. 

Similarly, my friend Hannah Berner, a brave and hilarious stand-up comic, has used her career as a vessel for healing her personal wounds. On the latest episode of Dear Gabby, Hannah and I boldly  “go there”, openly discussing sexual confidence and reclaiming your power in ways that I never have before. 

owning your narrative

Taking ownership of your narrative and embracing your sexuality and past is not just about individual healing— it’s a collective rebellion against a history of subjugation and silence. Hannah describes how the microphone became her tool for liberation in the freeing space of stand-up comedy.

setting boundaries as a form of self-care

Setting boundaries and prioritizing self-care is essential to healing and happiness. As I like to say:  Being a “no” for some things today creates more space to be a “yes” for things in the future. 

in this episode you’ll learn:

  • The surprising ways explicit sex talk can cast out shame and silence
  • What some podcasters do that triggers me  
  • How to liberate your voice and find joy in the present moment. 
  • What the empowering “ick” trend on social media is all about
  • How your body physically “remembers”

Finding the humor in any situation can have a profound healing effect. I learned so much about my own triggers around the current culture of sexuality during this illuminating talk. 

Trigger warning: This episode contains conversations and language that may be triggering for some listeners.
