Marci Brockmann

In this episode of the Wake Up, Human podcast, I talk with Marci Brockmann, an author and teacher whose work empowers people to live more fulfilled lives through the healing power of expressive writing. Our conversation centers on the theme of giving ourselves permission: permission to be who we are, to chart our own path, and to seek inside ourselves for validation, instead of waiting for the outside world to give it to us.

We’ll weave through discussions on hearing the inner voice within the outer noise, shifting our locus of control from the outside in, and why “going with the flow” is not enough if we want to live a fulfilled life. We’ll also explore the practice of journaling as a portal to self-discovery, a way to connect with the deeper knowing we all carry within.

And we’ll even ask the bonus question: what can spawning salmon teach us about giving ourselves permission?

Marci has a delightful personality, and tells some great stories, too. I hope you’ll join us for conversation on those topics and more in Episode 4 of the Wake Up, Human podcast.
