A big thank you to our sponsor for this episode: Thrive Causemetics

Thrive Causemetics was born out of a friendship. Makeup artist and product developer, Karissa Bodnar, lost her dear friend Kristy to cancer at just 24 years old. Kristy’s compassionate and vivacious spirit inspired Karissa to establish Thrive Causemetics, a beauty brand and philosophy that goes beyond skin deep by empowering women.

Thrive Causemetics’ products are made with high-performance, skin-loving ingredients that are 100% vegan and cruelty free. For every product purchased, Thrive helps women in need by donating funds and products to women who’ve experienced domestic abuse, to women seeking a path out of homelessness, as well as our women veterans during and after their military service.

This life-changing lens through which to understand trauma and the nervous system taught her how to manage her own complex health issues, as well as, help clients who have experienced trauma. Kerry is now inspired to bring this information to as many people as possible to work towards a more embodied world.
