Setting & Receiving Boundaries

S3 E5

“…in order to have boundaries and really even start to understand them, you have to be able to get comfortable in the discomfort of the duality between we’re all interconnected and we’re all autonomous. And both those seemingly opposite things are true at the same time.”

-Margy Feldhuhn, Neuro Somatic Certified Practitioner and CEO of Interview Connections
