EP 050: Relationships, Polarity, and Permission with Robert Kandell

I spoke with Rob Kandell, who is such a genius when it comes to relationships. The polarity of relationships, flowing in and out of the masculine and feminine energy with partners and how high powered women can settle into their feminine.

EP 048: Empaths, Narcissists and Father Wounds with Dr. Karin Luise

We talked about father wounding, daddy issues, for lack of a better term. That’s a technical term, “daddy issues” if you guys didn’t know. But honestly, we get so much of this in our community.

EP 046: More Courage, Less Fear with Kate Swoboda

EP 046: More Courage, Less Fear with Kate Swoboda This episode is all about courage and the reason why I love the whole idea of living a courageous life is what it leads to. When we’re on the edge of what is kind of uncomfortable, (I say this all of the time, my like feels like a constant wedgie because it’s always a little uncomfortable) what we get to experience by living on our edge and stepping into the things that terrify us, leads to so much. It’s truly where the magic happens....

EP 043: Using Triggers to Create Change with Cassandra Bodzak

This episode is all about the small steps we can make to create big shifts in our lives. So often we think that in order for us to have these enriching, meaningful lives we have to go out and change the world or change the planet, and it’s simply just not true. We can create change in our everyday community just by focusing on things that matter the most in our hearts like lighting someone else’s heart up through a smile, conversation, a hug. That changes the world. And I think so often we...


How to Get Your Sh*t Together in Your 20’s with Kali Rogers

Today I am interviewing Kali Rogers! We had such a great interview. She is such a cool chick and you guys are going to realize this once you start listening. We chatted about the power of choice, something I’m stoked on; I loved that conversation, and approaching life from a place of curiosity rather than attachment. So often, we want to control our way to happiness, and we all know that doesn’t work. We cling onto identities that make us feel like crap because we’re truly afraid of what...

EP 040: Anorexia and Body Image Issues as a Male Athlete with Jason Phillips

I was so pumped on this conversation. I was actually at a dinner with JJ Virgin, who has also been on this podcast, and someone mentioned Jason and how he had an eating disorder as a young man. We get so many men who ask us if we have services for men and I’m so excited to say that we’re in the process of doing that. But I just wanted to get Jason on the show to share his story. He is so passionate about what he’s doing in the world and I know that’s going to come across in his...


EP 039: The Key to Healthy, Lasting Relationships with Loralei Bayette

Loralei Bayette This episode is all about relationships and viewing our relationships as a mirror. She got really real and vulnerable and basically said on the show, “I don’t trust myself to be in a relationship.” And it’s so freakin cool for a woman to just own that and just really say, “Ok listen, now is not the time. The time is to love ME. The time is to be in my own body. The time is to understand myself.” I just thought that was one of the rad-est things that has ever been shared on...
