Hi friends! I'm taking a quick pop in here to share audio from a video I recorded for my Sunday Soother Book Club. We are reading The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma, and you can join the book club group here on Facebook. This audio goes over why I wanted to read the book; my experience in trauma; how I learned about the importance of the mind-body connection; and an overview of the first part of this seminal book on trauma, the body, and healing.The Sunday Soother Advicecast is a spin-off the popular newsletter, The Sunday Soother, a weekly newsletter that helps readers access their spirituality and mindfulness in practical, actionable ways.You can find Catherine @candrews on Twitter and Instagram @catherineandrews.

"Most of us know what an unhappy relationship with food feels like. We may feel frustrated or annoyed or out-of-control or embarrassed or secretive. But what causes that unhappy relationship?"That's the question posed -- and answered! -- by life coach Katie Seaver, who joins me on the podcast today for a wide-ranging conversation about our relationships to eating, dieting, body image and more. We talk about everything from compulsive eating habits, to what emotional and intuitive eating really mean, to shame around body image, and practical ways to reconcile and work through the fraught landscape that is diet culture today.The Sunday Soother is a spin-off the popular newsletter, The Sunday Soother, a weekly newsletter that helps readers access their spirituality and mindfulness in practical, actionable ways.You can find Catherine @candrews on Twitter and Instagram @catherineandrews.

Earlier this week I did a Facebook Live breaking down common terms you might hear as you delve into your own self help and awakening journeys, and I'm bringing it to you on this podcast too. I define everything from what a boundary looks like, to what codependency means, to what an inner child is and why we all have one, to talking about shadow work and much more. I found when I started my own personal awakening journey many of the terms were confusing -- too spiritual, too academic, not accessible enough. I hope this helps make some of them more clear for you!The Sunday Soother is a spin-off the popular newsletter, The Sunday Soother, a weekly newsletter that helps readers access their spirituality and mindfulness in practical, actionable ways.You can find Catherine @candrews on Twitter and Instagram @catherineandrews.

I recently had a client write to me about all the shame she felt around the amount of support she needed in her life. She says she feels she needs extra support; feels shame around the amount of support she hires and pays for; and wonders if this all means she can't trust herself.Going off of this topic, I talk about the difference between getting nourishing support and not trusting yourself; why some of us, I think, DO need more support than others; and how you can distinguish what's right for you.

Valentine's Day is over but I'm still talking all about self-compassion and self-love on today's episode of the Sunday Soother. What is self-compassion? How is it different from self-indulgence? Why can it actually -- gasp -- make you MORE motivated to do things instead of letting yourself off the hook? And instructions on creating a "self-compassion mantra."The Sunday Soother is a spin-off the popular newsletter, The Sunday Soother, a weekly newsletter that helps readers access their spirituality and mindfulness in practical, actionable ways.You can find Catherine @candrews on Twitter and Instagram @catherineandrews.

It's Valentine's Day and I felt called to record a special bonus episode on my love and dating journey -- and it's been A JOURNEY in all senses of the word. I talk about my codependent patterns, my fear of abandonment, recognizing I was dealing with low self-worth in relationships, the shame I felt around being single, and the tools I used to move past it.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that people are lacking a sense of the spiritual or mystical or meaning or structure in their lives today — something that the function of organized religion used to provide in society. But organized religion isn’t really a safe space for many people to turn these days — or a space where atheists or people who don’t overall believe in the common narrative of a Big White Dude God can go.But that doesn’t mean that even the most logical or practical of us don’t crave a sense of something bigger than the daily mundane in our lives, a sense of meaning or significance that we can participate in. I know that I — somebody who doesn’t believe in the traditional sense of god or religion as it is commonly understood today — felt I was missing something along those lines. So I started creating my own sense of the sacred in my day to day life through a series of small rituals that are now the fabric on which I build my days.And that’s what I’m talking about in today’s podcast. I go over what a modern, practical ritual can look like; how I incorporate rituals into my day-to-day life; and several suggestions and starting points for you to introduce simple rituals into your life right now. ***Some issues with traveling, my mic & internet made the sound scratchy on this one — apologies! The Sunday Soother is a spin-off the popular newsletter, The Sunday Soother, a weekly newsletter that helps readers access their spirituality and mindfulness in practical, actionable ways.You can find Catherine @candrews on Twitter and Instagram @catherineandrews.

"I set out to change the societal view of singlehood.""Dating apps can be a form of self-harm.""The biggest thing I have manifested is self-worth."These are the gems that came out of my podcast interview today with Shani Silver, a writer and essayist who is creating conversations about how society views singledom, and how we can change it. Shani and I get deep into a bunch of stuff on this episode, and I was alternating between laughing hysterically and being on the verge of tears with her insights on dating, shame, self-worth, and why we can all be doing better for ourselves.Shani and I talk work, love, and how fear and shame plays into both; why "single girls get the couch,"; our own personal development and dating journeys, highs, lows, and everything in between; the tools we have used to up our self-worth; and Shani answers three questions from Sunday Soother readers about dating, intuition, standards, and aging as a woman today. This is a must-listen. If you don't walk away from this episode with an entirely new perspective on dating, self-worth, and what it means to really stand up for yourself, I'll be shocked.The Sunday Soother Advicecast is a spin-off the popular newsletter, The Sunday Soother, a weekly newsletter that helps readers access their spirituality and mindfulness in practical, actionable ways.You can find Catherine @candrews on Twitter and Instagram @catherineandrews.
