Oct 26, 2020, 12:20 PM
After exploring sleep therapy and sound healing, The W Word lifts the lid on extreme meditation and the ancient method of vipassana, which involves sitting in stillness and silence for hours at a time. In episode 3, Anna and Kimberley are joined by Michelle Elman, a five-board accredited life coach and the face behind the popular Instagram community Scarred Not Scared. A torchbearer for body confidence, Michelle draws on her 15 childhood surgeries and opens up about finding the courage to pose in a bikini with her scars on show for all to see - a milestone that inspired her to publish her book ‘Am I Ugly?’. Reflecting on her personal experiences in this empowering episode, Michelle also touches on gut instinct, speaking to your inner ten-year-old and listening to what your body tells you.
