Worth The Fight Podcast

Sep 30, 2023

It’s a strange paradox, but there is Infinite power in peace. Franci, a kindred free spirit, courageously shares her brave journey overcoming religious trauma. We talk in-depth about the transformative nature of awe and travel, the science of meditation to rewire our brains and nervous systems, why breathwork is a game-changer, gradual cold exposure, how to get the most out of a contemplative journaling practice, microdosing and macrodosing, and the supreme importance of integration practices to cultivate health, happiness, strength and resilience from within. Lastly, Franci shares her incredible bucket list Thailand Meditation Retreat.
