Growing Through Giving with Laura Gisborne

I often speak about how vulnerability and opportunity belong alongside each other. And Laura’s experience proves it. Her amazing insights about opening herself up to receiving, uncovering her vulnerability, and letting go of control, allowed for her prosperity in all aspects of her life. But she didn’t do it solo. As she says, healing doesn’t happen alone, and her journey – like mine – included some amazing guides. I hope listening to this conversation with Laura can further you along your own road away from survival and towards thriving.

We talk about:

  • the strength necessary to access vulnerability as high-achieving women with deeply embedded trauma

  • how being of service to others helped her to begin the work of healing her inner child

  • how her inner defenses made it impossible for her to be in a true, intimate partnership with her first husband

  • how the need to be seen as good enough affected her choices in work and relationships, and how she was guided out of that paradigm

  • how patriarchy has convinced us to believe – and express – that we need nothing, and the importance of learning to receive

  • how she became present in her life, and why being in the moment was such a gamechanger

  • how collective and ancestral trauma is being triggered by Coronavirus (Covid-19), and how we can become expanded during this difficult and uncertain time through service
