Navigating Transitions

When I started this podcast I really had no idea what direction I was moving in with my offering. All I knew was that I wanted to speak with guests who could inspire, enliven, and really shed light in the crevices of humanity during this time of being alive while navigating this pandemic. I did not expect to love podcasting as much as I do. I am committed to continuously creating powerful episodes as I believe that more and more we need to be having conversations that are edgy, that challenge us in our ways of thinking and being, and that give us some juice to living life embodied and awake. While behind the scenes I begin to churn, explore, and do my own research about who I want to bring in and what topics I want to continue to explore, the episodes that are being produced will be a little bit less frequent than normal. Please stay tuned! I am excited and hopeful for what is to come in this podcast. In the meantime, I wanted to offer you some tidbits around transitions and doing so embodied and connected. ABOUT ALISON ROTHMAN Alison Rothman has spent over 2 decades in exploration of Self through an array of holistic and body-centered modalities.
