Episode 27: Radical Self-Trust with Tara Mixon

By Kim K Gray

Today's guest is Tara Mixon. Tara is a food freedom health coach. She believes we are dynamic and complicated beings, and our wellbeing arises from more than the right diet and culturally accepted body shape. That we need to shift the focus from food to who are we as eaters, to who we are beyond the body. Tara came to this work after practicing pharmacy for over a decade, and having her own journey with bulimia. She understands that health and healing is a deep, complicated, long and holistic journey. She believes we need to learn to love ourselves the way we innately love others.


Tara and I talk about:

  • Self-trust and the ability to listen to our inner voice while tuning out all the external noise
  • How honoring self-trust has opened doors for her to step into a life that is hers instead of a life that others perceive she should be living
  • Should vs. want
  • Curiosity as a state of openness
  • How the pain of staying the same can become greater than the pain of risking change
