Purefield Radio 027: Finding Your Life Purpose

What is your life purpose? How do you identify it, and how do you live it? What does it mean to lead a "purpose-driven life"? Join me for an exploratory conversation about the role of purpose in our lives. I also recommend an experiential activity to help you begin identifying what your purpose really is -- and what it isn't. (This exercise was inspired by Clarissa Pinkola Estes' classic book Women Who Run With the Wolves, which I also highly recommend!) *Dear listeners: please note that...

Purefield Radio 025: The Highly Sensitive Empath

Empaths are "emotional sponges who absorb both the joy and stress of the world," according to psychologist Dr. Judith Orloff. Growing up as an empath, you may have frequently heard that you needed to "grow a thicker skin," "not take things so personally," and "not be so sensitive." In this episode, I explore life as an empath and how we can nurture our sensitivity to overcome challenges and use our gifts to heal ourselves and others. I also investigate the difference between a highly...


Purefield Radio 024: Epigenetics and the Work of Dr. Joe Dispenza

Epigenetics is the "study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself." To put it in simpler terms, the field of epigenetics is helping us understand that our genes are affected by the external environment, including what we eat, drink, think, feel, and do. We are not destined to a certain genetic fate due to our family history or whatever happened to our parents or grandparents. In this episode of Purefield Radio, I...

Intuitive healer, spiritual teacher, and original founder of Purefield Pat Hardman joined me for a conversation on self-care, rest, and the importance of taking a break from our busy lives and schedules.

We also share specific self-care techniques and practices we both use in our daily...


Purefield Radio 022: The Human Energy System and Your Health

Join me for a discussion of the 8 major energy centers (or "chakras") in your human energy field. I discuss each center's role, associated body parts and organs, and potential dysfunctions. I also offer specific healing techniques and affirmations to bring each chakra back into balance and health. During the episode, I refer to Barbara Brennan's book Hands of Light. Get your own copy here. *Note: following Brennan's understanding of the human energy system, I associate the pituitary gland...


Purefield Radio 021: How to Spot a False Guru

Purefield Transmission: On Victimhood and Playing Small

The Akashic Records are a tool for accessing higher guidance and universal wisdom. Since Josephine is a trained Akashic Record reader, she decided to open up the Records and begin asking for specific messages for our listeners and Purefield community. This is the first message (or "Purefield Transmission," to distinguish these episodes from our regular ones). The topics are victimhood and playing small, which are corrosive and addictive tendencies in our human society. Why do we identify...


Purefield Radio 018: Food

Join us for a low-key, humorous discussion about food and its effects on our lives. We discuss our food preferences, what we learned to eat growing up (and how those patterns persist to this day), how we use food for comfort/entertainment, and how food is connected to our self-nourishment beliefs and habits.

Purefield Radio 017: Manifestation, Pt. 1

In this episode, we discuss complex and sensitive topics including oppression, power, race, and "white privilege."
