Love Without Reason with LaRayia from Lunch on Me

Our special guest today is LaRayia Gaston. LaRayia has a beautiful soul and, like us, believes that radical self-love is the foundation for permanent healing. Her organization, Lunch On Me, distributes organic food to the homeless and foster youth. They bring nutritious and organic meals to skid row six days a week, every week — serving over 10,000 meals a month. In our world, a lot of people often forget that purpose and service are even a part of the equation of measuring success and...


Problems Vs. Realities

Today we’re talking about anxiety, depression, and all the other kinds of ongoing mental health issues that are very common among the people that I work with. I struggle with both anxiety and depression myself, and, in the past, have often found myself juggling problems and avoiding conflict, causing the anxiety and depression to worsen. Since then, I’ve learned some key lessons in why we should not avoid conflict, nor conflate problems with reality. And today, I’ll be letting you in on...


Who F*cks Mother Earth the Hardest? With Kyle Thiermann

Today we’re bringing you a guest unlike any guest we’ve ever bought on before. Kyle’s a character — he embodies “f*ck shame” in a way that not many people in this world do. He lives and breathes this “I live who I am” mission that we are all about here at IGNTD, and he is absolutely unabashed about the choices that he makes in life (and we love that.) Kyle is a surfer, a journalist, and a writer. He surfs professional for Patagonia and has created a series called Surfing For Change on...


Reset Your Subconscious Unhealthy Habits

Today I’m here to talk to you about rituals — specifically the unhealthy ones. The ones that are bad habits or compulsions that keep finding their way back into our lives no matter how hard we try to get rid of them. Sometimes these can even become these huge, shame-inducing, unspoken pieces in our lives that stick with us every single day. Rituals are so important for creating consistency and flow throughout our day — so it’s crucial that these rituals are good ones. In this week’s...


Demystifying Astrology with Jana Roemer

Today’s guest is Jana Roemer! She’s an incredibly cool, inspiring, intelligent, balanced individual. She’s very grounded and knows a lot about the planets, stars, the moon, and galaxies — she’s a mystic who appreciates science. On top of her passion astrology, she’s also incredibly passionate about yoga and meditation and teaches classes at Love Yoga Space in Venice, CA. If you’re totally lost about astrology or just want to learn more, you’re going to love the way she talks about...


The Importance of Forgiveness

The topic I want to talk about with you all today is forgiveness. Whether or not someone intentionally or unintentionally wronged you, you’re still hurt by it — causing you to be angered, resentful, or frustrated at this person. But ultimately, it will only be your downfall for holding on to these feelings. We can do all the work we want, but at the core of it is forgiveness — it is so, so important. I hope you’ll join me for this week’s episode as I share with you some of the examples of...


Snacking Made Beautiful with the Founder of DADA Daily

Relationships are like art and food — they shouldn’t have rules. They should be about exploring and experiencing each other’s flavors and beauty, and shadows and light. They’re fluid, always changing, and adapting. And today’s guest helps us explore this topic amazingly well. Claire Olshan is an inspiring entrepreneur with a passion for snacking, wellness, and fashion. Her company, DADA Daily, is all about chic, functional snack food set out to break the rules of health food trends. With...


How to Get Out of Negative Thought Patterns

Today I want to talk a little more about perspective with you all — but this time, with a really specific slant. If you’ve read my book, The Abstinence Myth, you’ll know that I tell a story about my experience with women — specifically, this experience when I was in Jr. High where I ask a girl I really liked out. I plucked up the courage with my heart beating out of my chest… but she said no. I was devastated. Then, the next day at school, all of her friends knew. That experience was so...


Harnessing the Wisdom of Human Design with Jenna Zoë

Today we have a fantastic conversation with our good friend, Jenna Zoë. Jenna is one of those people who’s a light to be around, she brings out the best in others, and is unapologetically herself. Jenna’s work in Human Design is incredibly interesting — she enters in someone’s birth time, their location of birth, and birthday to generate a chart that helps her understand and read what someone’s purpose in life may be along with their inherent strengths. We get in pretty deep this...


Sober Curious: A Curious Approach to Living Alcohol-Free, with Ruby Warrington

Today I’m here with a special guest, Ruby Warrington. Ruby has a completely different approach to alcohol and addiction than I do with IGNTD — that’s why I wanted to have her on the show. Her new book, Sober Curious, is all about a curious approach to living alcohol-free. It’s a radical takedown of the myths that keep so many of us drinking. As both a conversation starter and handbook, Sober Curious strives to empower readers to transform their relationship with alcohol so that they can lead...


How to Create YOUR Perfect Relationship with Whitney Miller

Today’s conversation was a big one. It is inspiring, makes you think, and maybe even pushes the envelope for some of you in regards to what you consider a relationship. Our guest today, Whitney Miller, works one-on-one with couples and helps them discover their perfectly unique relationship that is shaped to work specifically for them. What led her to this work, however, was her own relationship. Whitney and her partner, Aubrey, have been together for seven years and for the last few, it...


Top 10 Principles by Gary Vee

For this week’s episode, I decided to take a closer look into somebody’s work that I greatly admire — Gary Vee — and dug up 10 of his principles that I thought were applicable to the work I do here, with IGNTD Recovery. Gary Vee has made a name for himself on social media with more than 12 million combined followers across all of his social media. I’m sure he needs no introduction! These are my top 10 favorite concepts from Gary Vee’s work that I think we can take and apply to...


Getting Personal: Following Up with Lacy and Darrell’s Journey

This episode, we’re following up with one of our ‘Getting Personal’ couples, Lacy and Darrell. If you haven’t heard our previous episodes with them (“Getting Personal: Lacy and Darrell” and “The Journey and the Struggle, Following Up with Lacy and Darrell”) be sure to listen in to them first before tuning in to this one. It’s been another couple of months since we last spoke with Lacy and Darrell, so we wanted to check in and see how they were both doing — separately and together as a...


The Power Of The 1% Principle

Today’s episode is all about the 1% principle. This principle is all about ridding ourselves of the notion of perfectionism and Mount Everest-sized goals. Many of us fall into the trap of setting such large goals that we cannot even fathom a way to actually achieve them. Adi offers advice, originally from his most recent weekly chat on the IGNTD Recovery Program, on how you can use the 1% principle in your life to create small, bite-sized steps to fully achieve your larger goal. Topics...


Going Deep: How to Repair a Broken Relationship and Renew Trust

In this week’s episode, we’re bringing you an often-requested topic: How do you repair a broken relationship and renew the trust? Once you’ve been broken, betrayed, lied to, or cheated on — whatever it is — betrayal is betrayal. And once you feel like your trust has been broken, it can feel like a daunting task to get back to a healthy, thriving relationship. So, in this episode, we have three easy tips to help you restore all your trust in your partnership. We talk about our own...


Why Your Perception of Reality Might be Skewed — and How to Fix It

Today’s topic comes from an Instagram Live I did a couple of days ago where I shared this notion of how perception is reality — especially when that perception tends to be negative and self-enforced. Often, we believe our own view of things over almost anything else, when what we really need to be doing is broadening our view through others’. You need to measure how you’re doing, not just by your own perception, but through others’ views and knowledge. I hope you’ll join me this episode...


Own Your Awesome with Your Joyologist

This week, we have an amazing guest (and friend) joining us — Tricia Huffman, AKA ‘Your Joyologist.’ Her work graces every part of our home and has for a really long time. All of her products evoke joy and are incredibly inspirational. Her products are beyond affirmations — they’re reminders of things you need to remember and who you really are. They keep us grounded and fill us up — they’re all-day-long, helpful reminders! Tricia’s mission is to inspire everyone to live their lives to...


Healthy vs. Unhealthy Fears

Today’s topic is fear. We all have them and sometimes they even hold us back from doing what we love. And, even if we don’t see them, they’re still there. It’s part of what being human is. A lot of people think that their end goal should be having no fears at all and being completely secure in all aspects of their life, but I don’t think that’s the right goal. Fears and insecurities can actually drive you to do better. In this week’s episode, I want to help you by addressing some of the...


Getting Personal: Following Up with Chelsea and Jon

In August of last year, we talked to an amazing couple — Chelsea and Jon. Last time we listened in, they shared their struggles with addiction, an affair, career differences, arguments, and dealing with the loss of a loved one. They were real, raw, vulnerable, and deep with their story — and today, we revisit some of these topics once again and ask how they’ve been doing since the last time we talked. If you have not already heard the first part of their story, we highly recommend you listen...


We Are Not Powerless

As a complimentary follow-up episode to the recent IGNTD Recovery Secrets episode on connecting to your higher power, I figured it was high time that we discuss the opposite of that; powerlessness. Powerlessness is the idea that we do not have control over any of our circumstances or the actions that we take. It literally means, “Without ability, influence, or power.” In traditional approaches to treating addiction, the idea of powerlessness is often reinforced — but this idea is damaging...
