Ep. 270: Becoming Willing to Ask for Help with Guest Ken “Katbird” Dunn

For those of us who are co-dependent, people-pleasers, rescuers, fixers, savers, etc. it can feel extremely difficult to ask for help. But the truth is, we can’t do everything alone. Ken Dunn realized this quickly when he stepped out of his comfort zone and sought healing through meditation, adventure, and ACA. This week’s episode 270 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about becoming willing to ask for help!

  • The role of mindfulness, meditation, and outdoor activities in Ken’s recovery journey.
