When I launched Healers podcast two years ago, I thought it was the culmination of the journey I had been on. An homage to the healers who had helped me heal myself from depression, debilitating perfectionism and self-hate. My version of woo, without the weird.
Instead, it was only the beginning.
I had no idea how much the world needed to know these healers. How many people were curious about a more holistic ways of living but didn’t know where to begin. How the Universe was waking us up.
This community is the next phase of the journey, and one that I am putting out there with as much hope and conviction as the podcast. It’s a place where you can take your healing into your own hands. Where you can advocate for your life and your right to feel good. It’s the next level of making healing accessible.
Not everyone is going to get it. Not everyone is ready. That is the lesson I’ve wrestled with leading up to this launch. That my self-worth cannot be tied to how this site is received, only to its intention. And my intention with Healers is to humbly offer the resources and wisdom that I wish I had a decade ago when I sat on a therapist’s couch for the first time. When I was so disconnected from my body that I couldn’t breathe into my belly. When I was so cut off from my soul that I had lost the desire to get out of bed.
To be clear: You don’t have to be in pain to find a place here. Healers isn’t about fixing you—because you aren’t broken. We’re here to support you wherever you are, whether that’s simply curious about past lives and palo santo, or in a full-blown mid-life crisis on the bathroom floor. I can unequivocally say that anything is possible when you step onto this path, and my goal is is to support you in any way I can.
There are a number of ways to get involved with Healers and it’s completely up to you. In addition to the podcast, we have a talented team of contributors who’ll be creating regular content for the site. I’m thrilled to have more voices in the mix and welcome your healing stories as well (please say firstname.lastname@example.org!)
You can now find our favorite healers in one place, and search by need, service and location. Most of them work virtually, so don’t limit yourself! Each practitioner has a profile to help you get to know their services and style better. This directory of trusted, vetted healers is something you’ve been asking for and I’m so excited that it’s finally here.
For those of you who are ready to go deeper, we created a Healers membership. This is taking me WAY out of my comfort zone because I hate selling anything. But I also wanted to make healing so accessible that you can do it from anywhere, in your pajamas, for the cost of lunch.
For $11.11 a month—because how fun is it to see that magical number on your credit card statement?—you’ll get virtual healing experiences every month, including an astrowellness guide from our brilliant resident astrologer, Stephanie Gailing, and bonus content from our podcast guests created just for members—think live Q&As and downloadable sound baths. Additionally, members get all the goodies: product giveaways, exclusive promotions and discounts on one-one sessions with our healers. All for $11.11.
Once we get our wits about us, we’ll also be offering immersive experiences like virtual workshops and Tarot readings. Many of you have asked whether there will there be more retreats and the answer is YES. We’re working on Seattle and Tulum now—you’ll be the first to know when we have details!
If healing is a journey toward wholeness then this site is one step closer. For so long I have held back because I wanted to get it “right”. I’ve worried more about being exposed than being of service. That ends now. To all of the healers who have helped me find my way back to myself, and to the listeners who have said keep going, this site is for you.
