“Until we sit in the dark, we can’t access the light.”
In this episode, Giulia shares all about the power of vulnerability and how she came to the decision that speaking her truth was more powerful than hiding it. We all grow up with shame and so often, we stuff it away, assume nobody else can relate, and carry our wounds forever. Giulia discusses how she began sharing her story, the very first person she told, and how she uses it to serve a purpose.
In our chat, we also talk about growing up in West Van - a very privileged pocket of Vancouver, self-image, and the importance of sharing our dark moments. Quite often, we shy away from our shadow, the negative stuff, and keep Instagram as our highlight reel, but Giulia explains that we can’t reach the light until we access the dark and heal that pain.
She also talks about how she made the decision to start Brazen Soul Rebellion and what it looked like to leave her full-time job at lululemon, stop teaching fitness classes, and begin her soul’s work instead. Plus, we also chat about what is reiki healing and how it works. (P.S. if you’re into the energy work and alternative healing modalities, you’re totally going to wanna stick around for this!)
So, listen to this episode ‘cause you’ll adore it. Giulia’s words are beyond powerful and full of wisdom.
With over 10 years experience working in the field of health and wellness, and a lengthy career in leadership & development at lululemon, Giulia Halkier is defined by everything but her CV.
As a high perceiving youth growing up in a family of alcoholism, Giulia was faced with challenges of deep darkness which entail prompted awareness and personal insight early on. Through a 20 year journey of soulful expansion and inquiry, Giulia has worked through healing her own personal chapters and pain of abuse, anorexia, depression, and trauma.
Giulia’s purpose is to see others through to living their best possible life, “her pure love and joy for helping you feel your best is unlike anyone I have met before”. Her grounded nature combined with her vibrancy and passion are a perfect partnership for any person’s journey, "there is something so magical about what she is up to and I just want more."
