078: Recovering from Shame + Coming Home to Yourself, with Stefanos Sifandos
Have you ever had a moment in your life when all your pain and accompanying coping mechanisms finally caught up with you?
When you finally saw with total clarity that if you wanted to be able to have any kind of happiness in life, you’d have to face that pain and find healing?
Our guest today is the relationship and intimacy coach Stefanos Sifandos — and he shares how that moment of getting “caught” forced him to reckon with a lifetime of abuse, fear, shame, and insecurity… and how that moment opened him up to the possibility of real love, deep connection, profound growth, and BIG impact on the world.
Today Stefanos is a husband and happy new dad, and in his work with individuals and couples, he helps people on the journey to loving all the parts of themselves that they’ve been trying to run from and getting back into healthy relationship with the core of what matters most to them.
And as he says: You can’t run a new life from an old blueprint — and that applies to healing, surrender, intimacy, becoming a parent, and any kind of major personal transformation.
If you’ve been on the verge of big change, and you know the time is right to face and heal your past, we think you’ll be deeply inspired by this heartfelt conversation with Stefanos!
