Healing our Ghosts is a groundbreaking podcast by Ana Joanes, filmmaker and creative spirit who brought us Wrestling Ghosts, a groundbreaking documentary about parenting with ACEs. I had the privilege of being interviewed by Ana on this week’s episode. Please click the link below to hear us explore Gun Violence Across Generations.
Healing Our Ghosts shines light into the suffering we keep hidden. We are not alone in our struggles and when we share our pain, we lift the shame secrecy that keeps us alone and disconnected from each other and prevents us from healing. With humor and compassion, Ana Joanes interviews a wide variety of guests about their messy lives, how they hurt, survived and thrived and, more often than not, how they use their life’s journey to contribute to the world. Ana believes the trauma-informed movement must be lead by those personally affected. She is the director of Wrestling Ghosts, a powerful and intimate documentary about childhood trauma and healing.
