Wounds to Wisdom: Don’t Just Survive, Shine!
Overcoming Your Past and Moving On
We enjoyed a spirited and lively hour with Vasavi Kumar.The best messages come from those who have one through the trenches. Ms. Kumar shares her background of drug and alcohol use, a bipolar/manic depressive diagnosis and years of prescription drug use with us as well as how she completely, ultimately changed her life. Some pretty wise ideas spring forth from Vasavi.You’ll enjoy this outspoken and inspirational guest!
•Beat What’s Holding You Back – Do you feel your energy is being sucked dry? Do you spend your days putting out fires, checking off every item on your to-do list or defending yourself in petty dramas? Vasavi explains how to beat these traps so you can feel completely, utterly, unapologetically, alive.
•Shine & Inspire! – It can be scary to shine 100% despite what people are saying or thinking about you. Vasavi tells how “standing strong in all of your awesomeness” not only helps you overcome the naysayers, but creates space for others to do the same.
•Wounds to Wisdom – Vasavi was raised in a Brahmin family that stressed obedience to Hindu principles through prayer and sober living, but as a young woman she struggled with drugs, alcohol and relationships. Her biggest challenge came in 2002 when she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She reveals how it is possible view pain, illness and suffering as a gift that can make us stronger, wiser and more resilient.
