“Stories are medicine. I have been taken with stories since I heard my first. They have such power; they do not require that we do, be, act, anything - we need only listen.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés
PODCAST CREATOR & HOST
Dr Maria Christodoulou
Having struggled with, rebelled against, and resigned herself to the many stories people tell themselves about who doctors are, Maria created the Awakening Doctor podcast to tell the real stories. By revealing the vulnerability and humanity of medical professionals and healers who defy the stereotypes, she hopes to challenge and transform the dominant cultural narrative and create a space for doctor-patient relationships that are based on our shared humanity.
