Chloe Baigent
Episode 8 | Chloe Baigent | Life Without Children

I first met Chloe Baigent when I was offering meditation classes. That was a few years ago. I remember her being quiet and thoughtful. She was working in horticulture at the time.

Fast forward a few years later and Chloe now works in youth affairs. She got there after a stellar academic performance which garnered her five awards at local, regional, state and national level.

She also did something she never thought she’d do. Become an artist.

How did she get to this point? It was a life changing moment when Chloe and her husband Kurt found out they couldn’t have children. Rather than go down the path of IVF she chose to pivot and go down a very different path.

Today we learn of Chloe’s courage to make change happen when a ‘taken for granted’ life choice is taken away.

Deb Atterby
Episode 9 | Deb Atterby | Living Life Despite Sequential Memory Loss

Sequential memory is something that most of us have and take for granted when we rattle off days of the week in order, learn sequences for everyday tasks or to improve at a task or skill set. You even learn sequentially to study for exams. But what happens when you have sequential memory loss?

Aromatic medicine specialist Deby Atterby has had sequential memory loss her whole life.

When you hear Deby’s story you will be amazed to know she is a trainer, lecturer, publisher, writer and presenter in the field of aromatic medicine and clinical aromatherapy. Her passion, determination and grit to keep going in the aromatherapy industry is astounding.

I speak with Deby and find out how she has managed to achieve all that she has done despite being thrown a curve ball from very early in life.

Jen Stewart
Episode 10 | Jen Stuart | From Fashion to Trauma Yoga Specialist

Jen Stuart was living in London studying fashion design. Her life revolved around fashion, parties and not taking care of her health and wellbeing.

Her life took a radical turn when she was involved in a car accident. It became the catalyst for deep inner change. She left London and travelled for three years. In that time, she reinvented herself. She trained as a yoga instructor in Bali and eventually moved to Western Australia. Today, Jen specializes in trauma yoga and supports people to find their way back from past pain and suffering to opening them up to the possibility of living a full life.

Podcast Reviews

The strength of storytelling 

I am really enjoying this Courage unraveled podcast! Hearing real and honest stories is always enlightening (also nice that its Aussie based). This podcast is perfect timing for 2020 and really makes me realise how courage plays a huge role in happiness, success, healing and a healthy wellbeing. Listening to Sana and her guests has got me very motivated for the second half of what has been a year of mayhem for all.
