Cracking Open Podcast
with Molly Carroll, MA, LPC

Molly Carroll

Hi, I’m your host, Molly Carroll.

Join me each week as I share the stories of thought leaders and spiritual teachers, actors and athletes, parents, and prophets’ on how their “cracking open” moment; the death of a loved one, getting thrown in jail, bullied in grade school, or hitting rock bottom with an addiction changed their life forever and will change yours too.

So get comfy in a chair and grab yourself a cup of tea, or buckle up while driving and listen while we dive deep to what it means to crack open and forever be transformed.

Episode 13: Elizabeth Lesser, Super Soul Sunday Guest and New York Times Bestselling Author Helps Us Uncover How Birth and Death Can Be Our Greatest Teachers

Welcome to our first episode of Season 2 of the Cracking Open Podcast!

I want to pay homage to my guest today, Elizabeth Lesser. I first came across Elizabeth’s work about 11 years ago after my dad died. I was in deep grief, and someone told me about her book Broken Open. While reading it, every word made me feel like I was going to survive the death of my dad. Broken Open radically changed my life and it is my go-to gift that I give to anyone who I know is going through a difficult transition in their life.
