Cultivating Kindness With Karen 

Have you ever had someone tell you to stop being a jellyfish or to grow a backbone? Were they being kind to you or judgmental and critical?

There are so many interpretations around having a “backbone” or not having one. Some people will look at you more critically and as a result you may think less of yourself. Some people are going to feel safer not having a strong “backbone” so they can easily bend and change how they are in any given circumstance.

In this show “Can You Be Kind And Also Have A Backbone?”, Stress Recovery Expert Karen Leslie, will talk about the different ways having a “backbone” can be a positive addition to your life and how it could be a real difficulty for you.

Be sure to join Karen in the chatroom for this week’s episode of Cultivating Kindness With Karen to be a part of the conversation.

~ More About Cultivating Kindness With Karen

Karen Leslie is an Educator and an Expert Healer who has been facilitating energy with others for over 25 years.  Her life of depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts has led her on an interesting, and at times, turbulent path to where she is today.

Kindness was definitely missing in Karen’s life.  Karen was always kind and compassionate to others, however she was not showing kindness to herself.  Today Karen knows that kindness towards others was actually a way of avoiding her own wounds and sadness.  These choices created a life of ‘people pleasing’, keeping the peace and avoiding conflict; especially if it involved having to say “No” to someone else.

Karen knows now that everything we do to help ourselves from the neck up will help everything from the neck down.  Karen now lives each day with enthusiasm, excitement, an openness to new adventures and a great deal of kindness towards everyone, most especially herself.
