It’s a true joy to welcome Kelly McDaniel, author of Mother Hunger: How Adult Daughters Can Understand and Heal from Lost Nurturance, Protection, and Guidance, to Your Permission Prescription this week!
I’ll be honest with you: I can’t get enough of Kelly’s book and I’m so excited for you all to listen to this conversation. For me, Kelly put words to feelings I’ve experienced for years, but didn’t have language to describe.
In this episode, Kelly shares the complex roots of attachment injuries and the common denominator we all experience where there is a lack of nurturing, protection, and guidance.
Prepare to take notes and begin to heal as we discuss a connection so many of us yearn for and how it’s shaped from birth.
Listen to Your Permission Prescription: Episode 6 to learn how to give yourself permission to repair lost attachment and feel nurtured.
