The Becoming Podcast – Season 5; Episode 1: Mara Glatzel on honouring your humanity, radical self-responsibility + letting the soft animal of your body love what it loves

Feb 3, 2023

Wow! I can’t believe we’re on season 5 of the Becoming Podcast! That is 4 years and 36 joyful episodes I’ve had the pleasure of sharing with you!

On today’s episode, I welcome The Becoming Podcast’s first repeat guest, my friend Mara Glatzel.

If you don’t already know Mara, she is an intuitive coach, writer, and podcast host. She is a needy human who helps other needy humans stop abandoning themselves and start reclaiming their humanity through embracing their needs and honoring their natural energy cycles.

Here’s some of what Mara and I talked about in this episode:

> The publication of Mara’s book – and a sneak preview into how she’s attuning to her own energy + seasonal cycles as her February 28th launch date approaches. Mara beautifully models how tending to your needs and celebrating your successes is an evolving endeavour that even the “masters” among us will always be ever-mastering.

> Grappling with the tension being “professional” and also being a human and caring for humans with oh-so-very human needs, and how it’s a political statement to show up just as we are.

> How seeing others’ humanity begins with seeing, validating and tending to our own humanity.

> Radical self-responsibility: the fact that you are the person most intimately familiar with your needs, and are therefore the only person who can really advocate for those needs to be met, by yourself or by those around you.

> And a little treat for you at the end!

I hope you enjoy listening to this episode! I’m so delighted to shout Mara’s work from the rooftops because I think it’s the foundation to any life transformation made well.
