Megan Dalla-Camina is on the show today and we're talking about womanhood, rebirthing, softening of edges, receptivity, unfolding, unraveling and coming into truth.

 

So many of our favorite things on this show!

 

She dropped some terms I loved - appreciative inquiry and positive core - and she talked about navigating a deficit based world by finding openings and focusing on our strengths.

 

We discussed the difference between things that make sense and things that "want to come through," how scary it can be to be soft, especially if you over-identify with being strong, why "leaning in" isn't always great advice, and this distinction I really loved - between simple, boring, settling, and creating drama.

 

Enjoy, share and let us know what parts were your favorite!

I am not sure how it's taken me four years to get my dear friend Nisha Moodley on the podcast, but I'm grateful for the divine timing and the depth, beauty and importance woven through this conversation.

 

Nisha's big truth was that community care is a huge aspect of our path forward.

 

We talked about how our understanding of what we need in community has changed, what exactly community care is, what togetherness and our ability to be real with each other looks like, as well as the layers of complexity to all of this.

 

We explored the vulnerability in asking for what you need and receiving it, especially when complex relationship dynamics are present, and how we create space for ourselves and others.

 

We touched on restorative justice, when talking is a useful action and when it's not, the power in paradox and when honest self-reflection is needed.

 

It's a juicy, listen more than once type of episode. Enjoy, share, and let us know how it hits you!

Sarah Durham Wilson is back on the podcast today and we dove into the journey from Maiden to Mother. It's an archetypal journey - so no matter your age or whether or not you've birthed a human, a lot of what we cover may be relevant for you.

 

We talked about the "initiations of strength" along the way, how in Maiden we take unhealthy risks in creativity and vulnerability, and by Mother we are moving from external validation to internal.

 

Which led us to a beautiful conversation about boundaries and aging, postpartum depression, fear of betraying our own mothers, embodying our souls, becoming more present and finding the gold in seemingly "bad" things.

 

Enjoy, share and let us know what lands for you!

A few weeks back I asked on IG stories what I should jam on this month in the solo episode and a surprising number of the questions were about business, so I decided to do a biz chat.

 

The timing is also good as Summer is upon us and I’m doing the business immersion that I did last summer again. I resisted doing business coaching or mentoring for many years, because a) I find A LOT of business coaches to be pretty douchey and b) I’ve had really up and down experiences with them myself over the years, so it felt like a huge responsibility I didn’t necessarily want to take on.

 

When enough people ask you for something though you begin to listen and accept that perhaps you have something of value to offer, and I realized my value lies in helping folks find what works for them, that can be aligned and sustainable.

 

There are also some qualities of shared worldview, integrity and ethics my business clients tend to have: humanity and the collective > profits. But money does matter.

 

Just not in an ego-y way, in a generous way.

The more we have the more we can share and contribute.

The soul desires to express. How can we optimize that and fulfill our potential?

 

How can we live like my favorite Erma Bombeck quote?

 

"When I stand before God at the end of my life I would hope I have no talent left and can say, 'I used everything you gave me.'"

 

When you’re here to do what you’re here to do, it’s ok to stretch yourself, in my experience you’ll feel stretched and uncomfortable a lot, you’ll just get good at navigating it.

 

This episode is about all of that and more.

 

Listen more than once.

Share it with your business besties or biggest supporters.

Have some conversations about it, and if you feel compelled, apply for my Summer Immersion here: http://wildsoulmovement.com/biz2019

You all know how much I geek out on conversations about trauma and how we can move through things in ways that are accessible to us AND honor where we are in life. Today's conversation with Rocio Navarro hits on ALL OF THAT!

 

Her big truth was about the nuances in how "surrender" is used in our culture.

 

From there we talked about stepping into the unknown and being open to possibilities and how beautiful hard and everything in between life can be.

 

Rocio shared how she uses and engages with water as a healing element. She shared how water has been her teacher and a path that reveals as so much of life is encapsulated in different densities of water.

 

We talked about the relationship between hypervigilance, strength and resilience, dance as medicine and a trauma healing tool, AND we even touched on working with dreams.

 

This was a really reach, deep and layered conversation about different ways we heal - I hope you'll listen more than once, let me know what lands for you and share it with anyone you can think of who can use it!

I've been connecting with today's guest, Jeanette LeBlanc online for years and it was beyond a pleasure to finally get to drop in with her for an interview. If you visit her website, jeanetteleblanc.com, what she does is clear as day. It says, "I help people find their words (and use them really well)."

 

And you know how much I love putting words to good use!!

 

So here's what we got into...

 

Jeanette's big truth was about dismantling the myth that we heal in isolation, which led us into a conversation about cycles of healing and how repeating lessons isn't necessarily negative.

 

She shared the origin story of how she's evolved and iterated from being a good girl, preacher's daughter with a science degree to a mommy blogger, birth doula, photographer and the rebellious writer and guide that she is now.

 

And of course we talked about our stories: the difference between the stories we tell, finding the truths in our stories, how our stories connect and heal us, and how the creative process of storytelling doesn't have to be a big thing that requires a microphone, platform or even an audience.

 

Enjoy this one and share it up - stories and words are universal things we all have access to, there's a lot of power to be mined here.

 

Big love,

E

Today's guest, Zuyapa Jackson, is one of my dearest friends. This was the kind of conversation that originally inspired me to start this podcast four years ago, just chatting with a friend about things we care about deeply, like healing, spirituality, and truth--then thinking, "Damn! I bet other people would love to be flies on the wall for this!" So I hope you feel that way as you listen :)

 

Zuyapa's big truth was around deeply trusting herself. We also talked about how fine is never good enough and made some really great distinctions between surviving, living and thriving. We talked about how we're always cycling through the three and how we aren't meant to be static or dormant in any of them.

 

We got into what it's like to be a "knower", how we have to go deep into the dark places in order to heal, one main reason being to resolve our shame.

 

Zuyapa shared why she thinks we're constipated as a society and how we're not "digesting" everything that goes on in our lives, how important it is to have places to turn to be truthful, and why we have to purify our physical and energetic bodies to come back out ourselves.

 

She also left us with a beautiful invitation to pray - and shared how to use it as a way to commune with not only the divine, but yourself as well.

 

This was a really beautiful conversation. I could barely stop smiling throughout all of it - I hope you love it too, listen many times and share it with anyone you think would appreciate it.

Our first comedian is on the show today. Living in LA, one of the things I've been aspiring to do with the show for a while is get a greater variety of creative folks on as guests, so I'm so happy Omrah Menkes said yes when I invited her!

 

Omrah is a multi-skilled artist, with passions including stand up comedy and animation. Her big truth was around being true to herself.

 

We talked about searching, freedom, and fulfillment in this episode and got into the various parts of these journeys. From grief, comparison, love, generosity, and making friends as an adult, to caring for people, pets and self - connection and creativity were two big themes we explored.

 

She also shared a bit about being raised in Israel, coming to the US to pursue her artistic career endeavors, some cultural differences, and how all of the different experiences have served her, even in difficult times.

 

Enjoy and share!

I love today's guest so much. Her name is Ahlea Khadro and she's someone I consider a "pocket person" - meaning, we talk so often I feel almost as if she is in my pocket constantly and I adore her.

 

Her big truth was that rupture and repair are more important than being perfect.

 

From there we got into the undulations of life, the cycles of creation, the great dance of back and forth that we do constantly as we evolve and heal. We talked about resiliency and intention, especially as it relates to parenting.

 

Ahlea generously shared a lot about her experience as a single mother, of stewarding a being, from childbirth on, and how throughout these stages women are called upon to use skills they don't always get to use, but absolutely have.

 

She talked about savoring the moments of peak intensity, some of the issues light polarization creates in New Agism and how we engage with ourselves during challenges.

 

This conversation was so juicy and we touched on so many healing topics, I can't wait to hear what you take away from it.

 

Share, listen more than once, and enjoy!

Today's guest, Christina Dunbar is another multi-passionate and talented artist and creative and I loved her big truth - it was about not being one thing.

 

I have a feeling a lot of you will be able to relate to this. She talked about being sexual, spiritual, smart, shy, bold, tender, fierce and more. We got into the creative impulse and her journey from the world of ballet and being shy growing up, to becoming an exotic dancer to support herself and finding her voice.

 

We talked a lot about storytelling as a beautiful machine that creates empathy and compassion. We discussed creative process and inspiration, what brings our senses alive about witnessing other people's art, the healing benefits of sharing ourselves creatively and more.

 

I loved this chat. Listen, share, and let me know what you think!

I met today's guest, Shivani Hawkins at an event about decentering whiteness in yoga and mindfulness spaces. I was touched by her deep connection to and reverence for her Hindu lineage, as well as her depth of practice, understanding, knowledge and philosophy. We live in an age when it's easy to take pieces of all sorts of teachings, so to be around someone who has gone so deep with one, is a beautiful thing.

 

Her big truth was about how everything comes down to the art of seeing. From there we got into practicing self-inquiry without shame, the difference between shaming and holding people accountable, and how shame is not inherent in truth.

 

We also discussed how harm occurs as the result of a lack of self-inquiry because the choices we make that are not examined can only go the way of our conditioning.

 

We talked about the difference between meditation and visualization, and my favorite part of the conversation was about the difference between seeing, listening and hearing.

 

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I did. You'll probably want to listen more than once and I encourage you to also use this as a conversation starter with loved ones.

Y'all know what this is...it's a celebration, bitches!!

I couldn't help myself. Sometimes a song lyric just fits.

I know our entire audience isn't entrepreneurs, but for those who are, this episode is for you. As well, if you are genuinely curious how business, branding and start ups work, it's a great conversation to listen in on.

 

I met our guest, Arielle Loren in 2015 when she attended my Wild Soul Movement retreat in Costa Rica. Ever since I've really enjoyed watching her business and trajectory evolve and we dove into all the parts in this conversation.

 

We talked about integrating larger social issues into business, which is what she's been doing by focusing on the disparity between how funding gets allocated to the rest of the entrepreneur field vs what's available to early stage, women of color founders.

 

She explained the difference between different types of funding, what "bootstrap mentality" means, and how to leverage and build credit and gain access to certain circles.

 

We explored where people waste their money in the early stages of running a business, the psychology and process to sales, working remotely, AND the role self care, focus and perspective play in running a sustainable business.

 

I also loved hearing about her various ventures over the years, living abroad, and how she landed in Miami as her current home base.

 

This is a rich and layered conversation. Enjoy and share!

Today's guest Sara Bliss wrote a book where she interviewed more than 65 people about their big life transitions, specifically related to career changes. As someone who geeks out on life transitions, period, I was excited to dive in with her around what she discovered through all these conversations and experiences.

Her own big truth was around the leap she took in releasing this book from being behind the scenes for many years as a ghostwriter, to being on the front end of things with this endeavor.

During the interview, we talked about the many different aspects of change and transition. She shared why she isn't a fan of the advice to "follow your passion," but prefers to be really invested in it. Which also led us to the difference between a passion and a calling.

We also got into the impact these big changes and transitions had on people's relationships. I enjoyed this chat very much and hope you do, too.

Y'all, I'm so excited to introduce one of my new favorite people to you today, Her name is Trudi Lebrón and she's also half Puerto Rican - which is one of our connection points, though you'll see throughout the conversation there are many more than that.

Trudi's big truth was the idea that everyone has their own path, which sparked a short conversation around all the paths within our paths throughout life.

From there we got into the difference between things that are culturally insensitive and blatantly harmful and she gave context and examples for a lot of terms we hear - fragility, impact, intent, self centering, woke, microaggressions, ally, and accomplice to name most of them. She gave us some practical applications of equity and what theory looks like vs practice in your life and business.

She also dropped one of my favorite metaphors of all time - you'll have to listen to get the full thing, but it's about money mindset and unconscious bias.

This is one of those "listen more than once" type of episodes. Enjoy and share!

I met today's guest at a conference in 2018 about decentering whiteness in yoga and mindfulness spaces. She was a keynote speaker and hearing her story and experience not only moved me, but really helped to anchor in so much of what we've been learning and exploring about racism, oppression, and liberation here on the show over the last two years, so I was pumped when she agreed to come on.

Michelle Cassandra Johnson is a social justice activist, anti-racism trainer, author and yoga teacher. Her big truth was around needing to shed layers and let go to create space for different opportunities and energies.

In this conversation we talked specifically about creating liberatory spaces, decreasing suffering and doing things differently in western yoga environments. She walked us through how justice is possible if we really live into the principles of yoga, shared her perspective on oneness, holding things at the same time, why she prefers to say "safer" space than safe space, and the kinds of microaggressions that are common for black people in yoga classes.

We also talked about her book, Skill In Action, how she's delivering her work in the world currently and how repair actually happens.

This is a deep and thorough chat, enjoy and share, especially with your yoga friends!

Today's episode takes us on an exploration of something I don't talk about a lot and that is quantum physics, consciousness and the holographic nature of the universe. Some folks are really going to resonate with this and others might be like, "What the actual hell are you all talking about, Elizabeth?" So I want to remind you, I'm not here to hit the mark every episode with every person, I'm here to follow my own curiosity and take you on the adventure with me.

Our guest today is Christina Rasmussen, a dear friend and repeat guest. The basis for the interview is her new book, Where Did You Go?

Her big truth was how people who are made the same way have such opposing ideas.

From there we talked about life, death, creation and seeing this reality we live in for what it actually is. We talked about synchronicity and the holographic principle, immersing ourselves in a world of unexpected experiences every day and how to respect people's foundational beliefs (as long as they aren't causing harm).

We got into the Observer Effect, how grief is an evolutionary experience and despite what many of us have been taught, why it is ok to pick and choose to create your own foundational beliefs that will create happiness in your life.

This is a juicy one! Enjoy and share.

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!
