Angi Yoder-Maina. Sitting Back, Listening, and Holding Space
Angi Yoder-Maina is one of those people.
She’s one of those people who after you get through talking to, you walk away feeling lighter, more inspired, and that you, too can change the world. She’s one of those people I love having on the podcast.
First, a huge-thank you to my sponsors for making this podcast happen:
Do you struggle to help numb, disconnected clients who can’t feel emotion or explore inner experience?
Learn a comprehensive approach to conceptualize your clients’ concerns. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy uniquely includes the body in therapy as both a source of information and target for intervention…because words are not enough.
Go beyond theories and gain practical ways to open a new dimension for effective therapy.

Angi Yoder-Maina is the Executive Director of a local Kenyan NGO called Green String Network (GSN) based in Nairobi, Kenya. GSN’s programs create opportunities for people currently in Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, and South Sudan at the most local level to learn about the effects of trauma, begin to heal and come together as a community to plan community-wide activities and structures to support further healing, and reconciliation.
Angi is finalizing her Applied Conflict Transformation Studies Doctoral at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Her dissertation is: “Wellbeing and Resilience: A Grounded Theory using a Trauma-Informed Lens for a Healing-Centered Peacebuilding Approach”. The Wellbeing and Resilience approach is a trauma-informed practice-based approach, which GSN is applying currently in the Horn of Africa.
