Mara Glatzel, MSW, is an intuitive coach, writer, and podcast host who helps perfectionists and people pleasers reclaim their sovereignty. Her superpower is saying what you need to hear when you need to hear it and she is here to help you believe in yourself as much as she believes in you. She teaches everything she knows about identifying, honoring, and advocating for your needs in her 9-month online program Tend. You can access her free training Self-Care That Works, hang with her on Instagram, or tune into her weekly podcast Needy.


You, like me, probably think you know what self-care means. Even if you are not necessarily ‘doing’ it well for yourself. However do we really know what self-care and tending to ourselves with tenderness actually is? Or are we still a part of the media machine that tells us that self-care is really about bubble baths or going for a walk and doing something to improve or better ourselves? My guest on The Priestess Podcast today – Mara Glatzel – is a fan of a bubble bath as am I. But you are soon to learn from Mara that self-care is about so much more than something we may ever be able to Instagram. It’s about deep exploration and being in relation with oneself, curiosity, setting boundaries, difficult conversations with people we love and leaning into the discomfort of asking for what we truly need.
