In this episode of Both/And, Bessi Graham interviews Berry Liberman, who shares her story of survival and thriving growing up in one of Australia’s wealthiest families.
Berry has done (and continues to do) the work of mobilizing those into great privilege while integrating love and respect for her family’s journey with her path to making something meaningful of her life. Wherever you are in your journey, remember Berry’s advice that this work takes time, so “be kind to yourself on the road.”
Also in this episode:
- Act from a place of love, wholeness, and connection
- If you think the end of your work around your privilege is fear, anger, resentment, and self-loathing then you haven’t finished the journey! You have to keep going
- Don’t move from a place of guilt. Come from a place of integration and presence
- “Throwing your privilege away is not being accountable for it”
