About the Episode
In this episode of the Radiant Rest Podcast, Tracee Stanley sits down with writer, teacher, and speaker Shannon Algeo. They discuss his highly anticipated upcoming book Trust Your Truth on how to reclaim your power and confidence, as well as tools to develop a deeper sense of self-worth. As inspiration and a catalyst for the book, Shannon speaks to the ways bullying has shaped his abilities to set firm boundaries and commit to a practice.
Shannon shares his liberation and insight alongside his experiences of profound heartbreak and his own dark night of the soul. Additionally, they cover the ways in which a resistance to sitting down to a practice, and a recommitment to that practice, can lead to new self-understanding and forgiveness.
