The Stories Writers Tell Themselves

Judy James, author of "Out of Hiding; Finding the Courage to be Me"

Episode #68

Guest Speaker ~ Judy James

“I never felt more myself than when I sit and write.”
– Judy James

Taking the time to just be is an activity many of us shlep off, thinking we’ll get to that when we have the time. What is it we are afraid of finding when we look inward? Why do we “hide” our true self from Self?

Judy James has spent forty-two years standing behind her clients as their hairdresser. She’s heard it all. As an empath, she did what most empaths do and took on much of what her clients were feeling and took on those emotions as her own. In Out of Hiding, Judy shares her experiences and inspires us to explore who we are and to “share the magic we came here to share”.
