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!
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.
