odaatchat.com Soberlifeschool.com I love this episode already, because we ran through a “recovery checklist” of sorts that I’m going to have to use in future episodes. It was totally an inspired thought! Felt kinda magical if I’m honest… Anyway, I have a little story to share with you. So years ago, when I first got sober I was in that emotional place where I had tried all my best ideas to fix my own life, cuz it was a total disaster, but nothing was improving. I was completely broken heartbroken because my boyfriend and I had just broken up, I had a ton of bills and no money, and all my friends were fed up. But as “luck” would have it, (and when I say luck, i’m using air quotes) I met a woman who pulled me aside and offered to work with me. I was so desperate for change, I did everything she told me to do, which was A LOT. But things started to shift, my life started to evolve in ways I never could have imagined. I found peace, relief, and such profound purpose that has given my life such rich meaning, it’s kinda hard to put into words. I was hooked! Over the last 25 years since that experience, I’ve been obsessed with workshops and exercises that identify the blocks to healing. So that’s what I want to share with you, if you’re ready for it. It’s a transformational program that starts with a 3 month plan so that you can build a foundation for your own life. Want to know why I finally decided to take the plunge myself? Other than being completely frustrated? I read this quote by Albert Einstein “A problem can’t be solved with the mind that created it.” For me, that was it and I’m so grateful I did because my life today is unrecognizable from where I started. I’ve been married for over 22 years, sober for 25, I’m debt free except for my house, and I feel really good about who I am today. If you’re ready to find out more, visit odaatchat.com and look for the butterfly on the right! So back to today’s episode, Taryn and her mom Dawn Nickel, who was also a previous guest, are the founders of SheRecovers, an absolutely incredible resource for women in recovery. They offer online meetings, retreats, and a huge community of over 270K women, all focused on recovery. And today Taryn is going to share her story and how she recovers. So with that, I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did.
Building a Supportive Community for Women in Recovery with Taryn Strong Recovery, whether from a physical, spiritual, emotional, or mental injury, is never easy. It requires a lot of internal work that can take a toll on our overall well-being. Because of this, the role our community and environment play in our recovery process is just as important as the efforts we put ourselves. A supportive circle can make all the difference in the world and can be our best hope as we go on this path of recovery. In this episode of Radically Loved Radio, we have the incredible Taryn Strong as our guest to share her personal journey of healing and recovery. She also shares with us her experiences in using her platform to build a community for people who are in similar situations. Check out the podcast highlights below. Be sure to subscribe and tune in for all the details! About Our Guest Taryn Strong is the co-founder of She Recovers, a yoga program that aims to incorporate yoga and meditation with recovery. She is a rising influencer for women who, like her, are recovering from multiple things. Taryn herself is proud of bouncing back from eating disorders, drug addiction, and even self-harming. Now, she dedicates most of her time to building a safe community for women in recovery. The Path to Recovery and Enlightenment The Cycle of Addiction and Recovery Taryn recovered from multiple struggles such as self-harm, eating disorders, codependency, and even self-esteem issues. At 16, she suffered from substance use disorder as well. Recovering from rock bottom is one of the most transformative moments of her life. She had thought she’s done with recovery until she was reintroduced to her vices. Her lowest point was when she wasn’t in alignment with herself and not living her truest self. Some time in between, Taryn and her mom started the She Recovers yoga program while Taryn was still under the influence. It was only after fully acknowledging her unhealthy ways that Taryn finally started the journey to recovery. Her mom is also recovering from workaholism, anxiety, depression, cancer, and domestic abuse. Their different approaches to recovery are what helps them both. Women in Recovery and Understanding Yourself Everyone is recovering from something. Not everyone suffers from the same thing. What matters is you are doing your best, and you are in a supportive community. It’s essential to make the spiritual and emotional connection between your struggles and what you feel. Recovery is not a one-size-fits-all process. When you begin to understand yourself and your needs, that’s the time you can ask for the help and support you need. One of She Recovers’ main guiding principles is that people need support to find the patchworks and pathways to recovery. Making the Connection Between Yoga and Recovery Taryn has been a dancer for most of her life, and she realized that movement is therapeutic for her. When she finally listened to this connection, she explored and fell in love with yoga. The Concept of Permission and What Recovery Path Works for You Give yourself permission to know your modality. Surround yourself with supportive people who understand your mode of recovery. There is no single template for recovery. We shouldn’t feel like there’s a “system,” and that if we aren’t part of it, then we aren’t recovering. Unsupportive environments require you to be dogmatic and evangelical about their methods. Listen to your voice and intuition. People’s healing will be different, and their personal journey is a way of honoring themselves as well. Women always have to ask permission to do things. It gives off a feeling of guilt and a constant wanting to do something to resist. For Taryn, her recovery wasn’t only from her substance abuse and eating disorders, among others. It was also recovery from patriarchy. Building a Supportive Community for Recovery Growing apart is normal for relationships. Choose quantity over quality. Stick to people who you know will genuinely and strongly support you, no matter how few they may be. Taryn’s broader community just came by organically. These are people who she hasn’t met yet in real life, but has supported her over the years. There is a heart and soul connection, even when you have not personally met some people. You’ll know when every time you talk or interact with them, you just feel better. Three Main Foundations of Building a Support Group First, stay open-minded and open-hearted. Try not to get too fixated on one idea or one opportunity. Second, believe that you are worthy of love, recovery, and healing. Third, trust yourself. 5 Powerful Quotes from this Episode “What I was losing was myself, and I was completely out of alignment with myself and not in integrity. And that was the worst imaginable feeling for me—not being in alignment and not living my truest self..” (Taryn) “Everybody is recovering from something.” (Taryn) “When we can get to a place where we understand who we are and what we need for ourselves, we can then be able to get to a place where we can ask for help and get the support that we need from the people that we need it [from].” (Rosie) “I see it every day; when we give women support and permission to recover in their own way, they do recover, and it's different for everyone. I mean, all of our experiences are different, so it just makes sense that our healing journeys are going to be different as well.” (Taryn) “When you start living your truth, whatever your truth is, or when you do start this path of healing, you just find each other.” (Taryn) Resources She Recovers Podcast with Taryn Strong You can connect with Taryn through her Instagram.
