Changing Our Perspective Of Masculinity

Today I want to speak with you all about masculinity, what we’re calling ‘toxic masculinity,’ and what it means to be a man in the world today. In this episode, I’m exploring my own experiences around masculinity, what toxic masculinity is, and most importantly: what’s missing from today’s image of masculinity (because that is the key to healthy communication and emotional expression!) If we want masculinity and toxic masculinity to change, we have to change the way we interact with...


Choosing Fierce Not Fear with Koya Webb

“Expressing gratitude and really feeling grateful for something completely shifts your energy and opens you up to receive even more to be thankful for. When you’re in a state of gratitude, you’re able to attract more of what you want in life. You are in the vibration of love and everything that’s in alignment with that vibration is in your life. When you’re in the vibration of fear, judgment, or sadness you’re in a lower vibration. It’s okay to be there, you just don’t want to stay there, as...


Redefining Life After Recovery with JuJu Hook

Today I’m really excited to bring you something that I’ve never done on the podcast before, and that is a conversation with someone I have worked with. When you work in this field and you help people when they’re at their lowest, a lot of the times they don’t really want to talk about it even after they’ve gotten better. But luckily, an amazing individual has stepped up to the plate! Today you’re going to hear from Juju Hook who I worked with about 2 years ago. Juju was a heavy drinker...

Altruism: Helping Others Even When It’s Inconvenient

The way we help people with addiction right now is so messed up that we should actually count our blessings that there aren’t actually more people dying from drugs and alcohol. In rehabilitation centers, they are kicking people out of treatment when they relapse — when really, this is exactly when somebody needs help the most. I went through this myself personally and I think it is a major problem for those seeking treatment for their addictions. In today’s episode, I’m offering my...


Winning with the Hand You're Dealt with Aarona Lea

“Intuition. My inner compass knows the way. Our inner compasses are intuition. When we pause to listen, we expand into its wisdom. As we strengthen our relationship with this gentle yet directive voice inside, it becomes brighter and clearer. The presence of your intuition is centered, honest, loving, calm, supportive, and guided. Life feels more synchronized and happy when you awaken your inner guide.” — Aarona Lea Pichinson from The Moon Deck Today we’re talking all about intuition with...


How to be Happier than the Richest Man on Earth

Today I’m going to share a valuable story about one of my past clients I saw a long time ago. It really illustrates why looking for happiness on the outside and trying to find it from external validation will absolutely never deliver. This client was an extremely wealthy individual living in Beverly Hills who was struggling with alcohol and pills. This guy could truly have anything that he wanted in the world — and yet, he was popping pills from the moment he woke up. In this episode, I’m...

How To Stop Staying Stuck And Embrace The Change That’s Coming

This reality that so many of us find ourselves in is this fear of being stuck or staying the same. We feel that our situation will never improve or we, ourselves, will never improve. But the truth is that we’re never stuck, and there’s a much deeper rooted fear we all have that is actually creating what we think is this fear of being stuck. So today, I want to talk to you all about why we have this fear of being stuck, the truth behind the fear of being stuck, what we really need to work...

The Number One Thing You’ve Forgotten, That You Can’t Live Without

You’ve got to have more fun in life! Seriously, stop being so serious all the time! So many of us get stuck in our daily troubles that we end up spending all of our time trying to fix them and we forget what it’s like to actually enjoy life. If we’re working so hard to make everything work by constantly addressing our struggles and fixing our relationships, we don’t get to enjoy our day-to-day peace.

Honest Exploration: The Foundation of Addiction Recovery

Just like building a house or starting a new relationship, if your foundation is shaky, then even the most beautiful...


How to Begin Living in the Present, with Jonathan Lehmann of 7Mind

Today we’re talking about all things mindfulness and meditation. Specifically, we’re going to be talking about “dropping in,” being present, and not being anxious or stressed out about how things should have gone. As our guest today, Jonathan Lehmann, talks about, that was the world he was in before — constantly worrying about the past and the future. Through his journey of practicing mindfulness and meditation, he was able to overcome these beliefs and begin living in the moment. His...


The Lie of the Addiction Gene

Recently, we interviewed Bruce Lipton (who wrote one of my favorite books, The Biology of Belief) on the IGNTD Relationships podcast. But, that’s not coming out for a little while, so I’ve decided to record for you a few of my insights and key takeaways from the lessons in his book; specifically relevant to addiction, mental health, and internal struggles. I absolutely love the concepts in The Biology of Belief. The lessons on why you are not your negative belief; how your genetics are...


Somatic Intelligence: Moving Life Through the Body with Chen Lizra

We’re talking about the body today — specifically embodying your psyche, your emotional experiences, and how to develop something that our guest, Chen Lizra, calls “somatic intelligence.” Often, when we talk about the body and embodiment we think of just the physical body — but it’s so beyond that. In today’s conversation, Chen helps us understand what it means to be fully embodied — in your spirit, your soul; all aspects of who you are. Being fully embodied means feeling fully...

Embracing Change and Living Your Life’s Purpose with Shannon Algeo

“I trust the change unfolding in my life. Sometimes we must let go of something good to let in something better. The wheel of life is always turning and change is necessary — without it, we become complacent. Change is brewing. Loosen your grip and relax into it. As you’re guided to step more authentically into your power and purpose, something has to shift. Change must occur. Trust the change unfolding in your life.” — from The Moon Deck This excerpt perfectly captures the theme of...


Unpopular Opinion: Addiction and Drugs

Today I want to discuss with you all some of the ways I’m seeing the current addiction treatment system failing. It’s not an easy or popular conversation to have — but I think we’re failing people left and right here, and the overdose rates are continuing to go up. With a system that has billions of dollars funding it annually, you would hope that it chips away at the problem — but the reality is that we’re not seeing any improvement at all. What we really need to do is take a different...
