The Language of Rebellion
Authentic Communication as an Act of Rebellion
In this episode, herdacious host Lorelei chats with Jace Downey to discuss how authentic communication improves our quality of life. Jace breaks down the true meaning of authenticity, loving ourselves at our best AND our worst, and how radical acceptance allows us to communicate as our truest selves. While digging into our self-worth might be a daunting task, Jace teaches us all that our shovels are bound to hit gold and reveal a crown. Let’s pick it up and be the authentic queens we were born to be!
