Quote: “Care for yourself first until your cup is overflowing, and then you can give to others as well.” Brandy Maslowski
Social media and instant access to information can be a good thing, but not always.
We live in an age where trauma is all around us. Some of us are more affected and closer to trauma than others. First responders are on the front line every day. They see and hear things that are unthinkable to most of us, so how are they supposed to cope with it all? On this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we’re thrilled to welcome Brandy Maslowski to share her story of going from firefighter to quilting coach and how mindfulness can help overcome PTSD.
Brandy Maslowski is a quiltmaker and textile artist who travels the world as a teacher, speaker, author and certified quilt judge. She has curated a portfolio of workshops to nudge the quilter into artfulness. Brandy’s work explores meaningful themes in her life such as trauma using the texture, colour and boundless possibilities of fabric, surface design and stitch.
