Today's guest is Susanna Barkataki and her big truth was about how intimately interconnected wellness, healing, and social justice are.

 

We talked about dominant culture, how whiteness is upheld in yoga and wellness spaces, power dynamics and structures, people's capacity for discomfort and navigating the big emotions that come up doing this kind of work: sadness, grief, and anger.

 

Susanna provided a thorough examination of violence and nonviolence in three levels - self, interpersonal and institutional - which helped me deepen my learning a lot and I really hope it does for you also.

 

We also talked about how to dismantle and build at the same time, decolonizing our own minds, internalized oppression, trauma-informed yoga and the nature of privilege.

 

A few notes on the summit Susanna is hosting that we mentioned in the interview which I am a guest for:

 

I haven't said yes to an online summit in years, but when Susanna invited me to be part of her summit, I made an exception because the topic is super important to me. Even so, as I do not have the time to personally vet each speaker or listen to the other 20+ interviews, please be aware that my participation in this summit is not an endorsement for every speaker in the lineup and it's likely that not all views are in alignment with my own. I do recommend that you use your own discernment if you choose to sign up for the summit and be aware that you will receive several emails once you do and be invited to a Facebook group for discussion, which you do not have to join if you don't want to.

 

As well, as clear communication is a high value for me, I want to add that based on some of the messaging around it, it seems the summit, though titled Honor Don't Appropriate Yoga is largely focused on diversifying western yoga asana practice spaces, just as much, if not moreso than addressing cultural appropriation within the western yoga world.

This is my new favorite interview of all time, period. I had a feeling it might be as today's guest is the author of a book that completely changed my life last year. The book is Deeper Dating and the author is Ken Page.

I waited to have him on the show for a few months so I could implement what I learned from the book when I read it the summer of 2018. I also recommended it to several friends and clients and have been geeking out on it for months.

Anyway - I could gush on but truly, I hope you enjoy this as much as I did and listen several times.

Ken's big truth was around hidden arrogance when in conflict.

From there we talked about intimacy as a journey of rupture and repair, learning about the humble act of messing up, how he came to discover the content in the Deeper Dating book in his work with clients as a therapist and his perspective on codependency.

Then we talked about my favorite concept in the book: Attractions of Inspiration and Attractions of Deprivation aka why we get turned on by things that aren't good for us and how to shift away from that to being turned on to what is. It's game-changing, y'all!

 We talked about emotional availability and finally - FINALLY!! He gave me alternative language to use instead of "masculine and feminine" - "instrumentality and expressiveness."

 We also bumped into one of my own biggest wounds that comes up in romantic relationships and I had a little cry in the middle of the interview.

 Like I said, this is my favorite interview of all time period.

Enjoy, share, tell your friends, review it, get the Deeper Dating book, and I hope you find me on Instagram and tell me everything after you listen!

Enjoy, share and let me know what lands and resonates with you about this one!

This month's solo episode is about the Power of Love. I wanted to do this since it's the month in which Valentine's Day occurs which gets a lot of folks "in their feelings" about love. I didn't focus on romantic love in this episode though - mainly because next week we have the author of Deeper Dating, Ken Page, with one of my favorite interviews ever on the subject.

 

This episode focused on reciprocity, giving and receiving and so many different expressions of love. From self-care and gentleness to vulnerability, doing sacred work in the world, generosity, boundaries and communication and more.

 

I shared a few stories in this one about a particularly rough day I had that ended in meeting two earth angels whose story was more than moving; it was healing, revealing and permission giving. I drew out the story so you could perhaps, relate. Especially to times when you need your own love and that of others because if there's one thing I'm certain we all need constant reminding of, it's that we are worthy of love and sometimes forget that.

 

Enjoy, share and let me know what lands and resonates with you about this one!

Keisha Shields is on the show today. We explored leadership in depth and she provided some incredible distinctions around transparency, storytelling and oversharing. Her big truth was around issues leaders have and the difficulty of "claiming space."

We talked about different types of leaders, how people come to their true center and the distinction between privacy and secrecy. Keisha shared a bit of her story, along with her practice of being an open chapter, but not an open book, which I loved, and we also explored the value of sharing our stories and storytelling.

We got into discerning when it's valuable to share the story of an experience, or the story of the impact the experience had on us, the difference between healthy and unhealthy validation and determining if and when we are safe ourselves or we are protecting someone else's safety.

This is a really smart, fiery, and fun conversation, enjoy!

Today we have Janelle Hardy with us - what’s cool about Janelle is that I’d actually not been familiar with her work until she interviewed me on her podcast. It was such an enjoyable conversation - there’s a link to it in the show notes - that I wanted her on our show. I wanted more of her energy and to know more about what she does, and so this is a really enjoyable interview.

We talk about the importance of self-reclamation and self-expression, and how watching your children grow up brings up your own issues as they progress through their own timeline. We talk about the process of getting to know yourself, shedding layers to find your wholeness, and about bodywork, as Janelle is a bodyworker, and I was really curious about the energetics of that when you have your hands on so many people’s bodies and how that affects you and your life every day. We also talk about cultural experiences, socialization, and the relationship between grief and rage and how that relates to your ancestry.

Enjoy and share!

I'm excited to introduce you to today's guest, Molly Mahar. She happens to be one of my "business besties" and one of the few coaches I'll be having on the show in 2019.

Her big truth was around balancing abundance and allowing herself to desire more or to desire differently than she has in the past.

We talked about internal and external space, keeping things practical, specific and exquisite in personal and professional practices, the difference between being triggered and intrigued, and what we can learn from boredom.

We also discussed one of my biggest pet peeves in the coaching world, the idea that we always need to be pushing or leaning into an "edge" - instead Molly and I explored healthier and more self-honoring relationships to our edges.

Enjoy and share!

About Molly Mahar:

Molly Mahar is the founder of Stratejoy — an online community that has helped thousands of women reclaim joy and meaning in their world. She’s an entrepreneur, mama, and adventurer obsessed with taboo topics, designing personal experiments, and the power of sisterhood.

I’ve been excited to share this interview with you since I first recorded it two months ago. This conversation with Eva Clay really helped to change the trajectory of my dating life. Her insights, advice and techniques changed my perspective immensely on what’s possible in dating and romantic connection with men, outside of monogamy.

This interview isn’t necessarily about non-monogamy, but with everything Eva shares from ways to not get attached or obsessed too soon, how to stay in your own experience and your own body when you’re first connecting with someone new, the impact of social media on self-image and self-esteem and more, you may also be rethinking how you approach dating and relationships by the time it’s over.

I appreciate Eva’s extensive training, deep experience and wise way of integrating science, embodiment and spirituality. Enjoy and share this one far and wide, y’all!

About Eva Clay:

An acclaimed sexologist, psychotherapist and academic, for over two decades Eva Clay’s been following her mission to illuminate the ménage-a-trois of soul, sex, and science. Eva’s courses are a robust marriage of the profound and the playful, and as a former professor of neuroscience, she bodaciously reminds us that smart is sexy. She’s trained extensively in mind-body therapies such as Somatic Experiencing, Gestalt, Imago Couples Therapy, Hypnotherapy, Interpersonal Neurobiology, and Trauma-Informed Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. When she’s not teaching, you’ll find her making trouble on a dance floor.

We did it y'all, bonus episode and all. Today we wrap up the Journey Into the Wild Soul and what I'm focusing on in this final episode of the series is moving forward.

How do we face forward and get moving in the direction we want to be going?

How do we get on with creating, being, doing, having and embodying the things that we want?

Hopefully you’ve listened to episode 285 and are more familiar now with the differences between desires of the ego and desires of the soul…

If not I suggest listening to that at some point soon after this, because that makes things easier - to be in pursuit of the desires of our souls, not our egos.

I also talk about energy in this episode.

Energy is everything. Having awareness around your energy and how you can effect it with relative ease and bring good energy to things and experiences makes a massive difference on your life.

Enjoy!

Today's episode is number six of seven in a podcast series I've been dreaming up for a while called Journey Into The Wild Soul. It's FILLED with gems to explore your inner world to help you have a better outer world experience. (And that is putting it very, very mildly.)

There's a free pop-up Facebook group that goes with it, to get some quality time together as a Wild Soul community before 2019 starts and we get all “hyped up” about a new year. I hope you’ll join me and bring your friends!

This week I'm recapping the first five episodes where we covered reflection on the year, having a deep committed practice, embodiment, and The Arc of Power. After that, we walk through everything under the umbrella of my body of work, especially that which goes into POWER 2019.

Take notes, listen to this one more than once, share it up with your friends, discuss it, and/or come into the private FB group to reflect. The content in this episode could alter the trajectory of your 2019, big time. Enjoy!

Today's episode is number four of six in a podcast series I've been dreaming up for a while called Journey Into The Wild Soul. It's FILLED with gems to explore your inner world to help you have a better outer world experience. (And that is putting it very, very mildly.)

There's a free pop-up Facebook group that goes with it, to get some quality time together as a Wild Soul community before 2019 starts and we get all “hyped up” about a new year. I hope you’ll join me and bring your friends!

This week and next week I'm diving into what's called the Arc of Power in my body of work. I'm breaking it into two episodes so as not to overload you with things by trying to squeeze it all into one, because the Arc of Power is comprised of four pretty in depth topics:

Surrender + Release
Trust + Receptivity
Wild Dreaming + Desire
Love + Truth

Today we get into Wild Dreaming + Desire and Love + Truth. I walk you through the value and impact wild dreaming has on your thinking and imagination - and how important this is for adults to pay attention to.

Then we explore how to distinguish between your ego's desires and your soul's desires - this is crucial.

As for Love + Truth, these are cornerstones to real, true power. Power that helps, heals, creates progress, momentum and change; power that dissents, disrupts, revolts and makes a difference.

None of that is possible without love and truth.

Take notes, listen to this one more than once, share it up with your friends, discuss it, and/or come into the private FB group to reflect. The content in this episode could alter the trajectory of your 2019, big time. Enjoy!

Today we get into Surrender + Release and Trust + Receptivity. How they operate individually and together, why they need each other to thrive, why we all need these practices in our lives and how they impact us...it's extremely juicy and you will have many aha's, insights and maybe even an awakening or two - and I'm not exaggerating.

Take notes, listen to this one more than once, share it up with your friends, discuss it, and/or come into the private FB group to reflect. These next two episodes can literally change everything for you in 2019. Enjoy!

Today's episode is number three of six in a podcast series I've been dreaming up for a while called Journey Into The Wild Soul. It's FILLED with gems to explore your inner world to help you have a better outer world experience. (And that is putting it very, very mildly.)

There's a free pop-up Facebook group that goes with it, to get some quality time together as a Wild Soul community before 2019 starts and we get all “hyped up” about a new year. I hope you’ll join me and bring your friends!

Today's episode is really the anchor of the whole series, it's about embodiment. I get into what it is, like what does that actually mean, what's the value in it, or in otherwords, why is it EVERYTHING?

And that's really not much of an exaggeration. In the Wild Soul world everything begins and ends with embodiment. You'll see why in this episode. It helps with discernment, which helps with decision making, safety, integrity, relationships...so many things.

It's a potent pursuit and one that I will violate my "should" rule for and go ahead and say every woman should endeavor to make. Again, to learn why and see for yourself, listen to the episode.

Definitely share this with friends, discuss it, re-listen. It's a game changer!

As well, if you're checking this out in real time it's Monday Dec 3 and POWER 2019 is officially open for enrollment - the first 30 women to join this week get a very special 1:1 bonus.

Today's episode is number two of six in a podcast series I've been dreaming up for a while called Journey Into The Wild Soul. It's FILLED with gems to explore your inner world to help you have a better outer world experience. (And that is putting it very, very mildly.)

There's a free pop-up Facebook group that goes with it, to get some quality time together as a Wild Soul community before 2019 starts and we get all “hyped up” about a new year. I hope you’ll join me and bring your friends!

In this second episode I'm talking about the value of deep committed practice, how that impacts our progress and results towards our growth, healing and transformation.

I geek out a bit on alchemy and the importance of containers as well as that five components of deep committed practice that I find to be crucial to getting the most out of the work we do on ourselves with the time and resources we have available to us (which are different for everyone).

Enjoy, listen, share, reflect...I really hope this is useful for you!

Nov 19, 2018

Today we're kicking off a six week podcast series I've been dreaming up for a while. It's something I look forward to doing every year. It will be FILLED with gems to explore your inner world to help you have a better outer world experience. (And that is putting it very, very mildly.)

I’ll also be opening up a free pop-up Facebook group to get some quality time together as a Wild Soul community before 2019 starts and we get all “hyped up” about a new year. I hope you’ll join me and bring your friends!

In this first episode I'm offering up some statements of inspiration, questions for reflection as well as my own "year in review" of sorts. Journey into the Wild Soul is about reflecting on the year and perhaps years previous, so that we can leave the past in the past as we transition into a new year. As well as to invite you to consider if how you’ve been going about your growth, healing and transformation is really effective or if it’s more performative, obligatory, inefficient, ineffective, or just a distraction.

As always on Truth Telling, we're gonna keep it real and pack it in with tons of love, truth, kindness, laughs, stories and useful insights. Enjoy!

Ever feel like you just share a brain with some people? That is how I feel about today's guest, Kendra Cunov, who is back for her second time on the show. Her big truth was, "Just moving the body will literally change everything."

From there we talked about coming home to ourselves (which by the way caused me to have my biggest Freudian slip on the show ever, it was hilarious), the idea that "it" has to be somebody's fault, our responsibility for others' feelings, internal fundamental wholeness and what healthy love and intimacy actually look like.

She also dropped in two big concepts that were so fun to explore: 1) We don't heal by continually putting ourselves in situations that wound us and 2) How to use our own behavior as a barometer in assessing healthy relationships.

You'll probably want to listen to this one a few times to get all the nuggets. Enjoy and share!

We've got Dr Tee Williams on the show today. Dr Tee holds Masters and Doctoral degrees in Social Justice Education and I really appreciate his way of taking complex and challenging topics and presenting them in ways that are easy to understand and work with. I really enjoyed being able to learn and correct some of my own thinking, framing and verbiage in real time during this chat.

We covered a lot of ground including cognitive dissonance and how we fight against each others' oppression, the us vs. it mentality (instead of us vs. them), why he prefers liberation work over anti-anything, how we survive in environments that are constantly hurting us, the role of shame, blame and guilt in oppression, intersectionality and more.

This is good learning episode to share with friends and use for discussion.

Robert Kandell is back on the show and we are honing in big time on the topic of MEN. Not in like the Salt N Pepa, "Girls, what's my weakness?! MEN!" way, but rather, the "what's going on for men right now?" way. I appreciated this conversation a lot because while we focus mainly on the issues effecting women on this show, most of us have men in our lives that we really care about and have no desire to shut out, or shut down. Nor are we interested in dismissing men in general. It's just kind of hard to hold them in as much compassion sometimes, especially right now in 2018 as this episode is going live ... so Rob and I discussed why that is and how we can ALL do better together.

We got into the history of patriarchy, what exactly toxic masculinity is, male vulnerability, when and why people actually change, the different ways men and women feel validated, cultivating self esteem, three parts to great communication and more.

This is a great episode to share with the men in your life and use as a conversation starter for connection and understanding, enjoy and share!

I had so much fun talking to today's guest, Tanya Geisler, I did not want this interview to be over! Tanya's expertise is The Imposter Complex. Based on the Imposter Phenomenon, it looks at how most women are incapable of internalizing their own success, but totally able to internalize their failures.

We talked about how this messes with women's lives in so many ways --primarily isolating you, keeping you out of action and making you doubt your capacity. Tanya walked me through the behavioral traits that indicate when you're in the Imposter Complex, how and why this is conditioned into women, the double binds it creates (this was so eye opening), AND, how and why the Imposter Complex shows up (this part is the good news).

We also got into a chat about integrity, unshakable confidence, collective grief and desire. This is probably a listen more than once type of episode, enjoy, share and let me know what you think!

Integrity is one of my top values so I really geeked out in this episode. The exploration spans my own personal experiences of and with integrity. Working definitions, references to wisdom from past podcast interviews and fielding listener questions on the topic. Enjoy and share!

Oct 8, 2018

Today's interview is a deep and soulful one with Shanda Catrice. Shanda is someone whose writing online is always packed with healing wisdom and her big truth was, "You don't get to know," meaning, in life, we don't get to see around the corner.

From there we spent a lot of time on love and relationships. We got into attachment theory, the idea of "dating sober" and some different dating intentions and archetypes that I'd never considered before.

We also talked about divorcing ourselves from our cultural stories, how empaths are both born and created, and building capacity for all of life's joys and challenges while honoring the circumstances in the world as well as who we truly are.

I enjoyed this one so much and hope you do too!

If you're a long time listener you know I am a geek for healthy and conscious communication strategies and today's episodes is centered around just that.

Alexandra Jamieson is back on the show with her partner, Bob Gower sharing their "Getting To Hell Yes" conversation framework. Alex's big truth was that she can't do bullshit. Bob's was that it's better to have a boundary that's too strong.

From there we got into all things that go into having high stakes conversations: how to express emotions responsibly without derailing conversations, how anger and rage can be productive or destructive, and what the responsibility is of people with boundaries when interacting with folks who clearly don't have them. We also spent some time on power dynamics and Alex and Bob shared their four part conversation framework which includes intentions, concerns, boundaries and outcomes.

I loved this chat and will be re-listening a few times myself. I hope you get a lot out of it as well and share it up with those who could also use it!

I really enjoyed this chat with today's guest Melissa Toler. Melissa also used to work in the fitness industry and I'd been enjoying her posts on Instagram about challenging the way we think about bodies. That was actually her big truth, how our culture values and devalues bodies.

If you have any history with body image issues or disordered eating, please know before listening we explore a lot of topics in this interview that could be triggering.

We discussed all the things we need to unlearn and relearn, how hard it is to part with our conditioning, "body positivity", the moral imperative of health, the misconstrued relationship between body size and health and diet culture. We also opened up about why we both stopped selling "fitness" and "weight loss".

Enjoy the episode and share if it resonates!

This was a fun episode to record. Last year the birthday episode revolved around lots of healing and lessons. This year was much more of a celebration of fully living, emerging from the other side of healing and reclaiming joy. It was also a lot of waking up, showing up, taking accountability and operating in an alignment that feels much truer, deeper and ME.

I called the episode Cultivating Joy in Difficult Times because it was really challenging and hard...so for anyone going through anything, I hope you can find even just ONE USEFUL NUGGET.

I saw this quote on Instagram over the weekend and it sums up exactly how I feel, "I know as a woman I'm supposed to be afraid of getting older but I love this shit so much. Every year I sink deeper into this bath of unapologetic realness and it's amazing." -Bunmi Laditan (@HonestToddler)

So enjoy the episode, share it up if your people could use it too and as always, thanks for listening!

Terri Cole is back on the podcast today and we are diving in on a topic this audience, loves --boundaries! We started with how to know when you need them and from there got into, "high functioning codependency", capacity versus willingness, overcorrections and misconceptions about what it means to be your best self.

We also talked about how critical mindfulness and present moment consciousness are to well drawn boundaries, cultivating the internal space to respond not react (a valuable distinction), boundary bullies and the relationship between boundaries and control.

As always Terri brings the good stuff. If you're someone who is practicing better boundaries, this is definitely one to listen to a few times and share with friends!

This is a 101-type episode which I love to do once in a while to create a go-to resource for people looking to get into things. Today's topic is the tarot and my guest is Brigit Esselmont, founder of Biddy Tarot.

Brigit's big truth was around discovering more about the role intuition and inner wisdom play in her life. From there we talked about how and why she got into tarot 20+ years ago and the basics of how she teaches people to use the tarot as an access point to living a more intuitive life.

She explained the difference between tarot and oracle cards, walked us through the Major Arcana and even gave me a mini reading around my pursuit of stand up comedy to demonstrate how the cards work.

This is a really fun and informative conversation, enjoy!
