Last week, an acquaintance of mine, Kelly Watkins reached out on Instagram to share a post with me about how she'd be diagnosed with incurable blood cancer and asked if I'd be willing to have a conversation about death and dying on the podcast.

She herself has worked on both sides of life as a nurse in labor and delivery, a hospice nurse, and then outside of western medicine as a death doula, so she has a lot of perspectives to share.

Of course, I said yes and this episode is that conversation.

One of the things we both noticed about midway through the conversation was that we could have gone deeper and tapped into more of the things that people prefer not to talk about AND we felt a sensitivity around the current climate around COVID-19 and the Coronavirus and the mortality and death we're about to be confronted with across the globe - so we trusted that where we did go was perfect.

A few of the threads we pulled in our chat were: being a mother of five under quarantine right now with just one of her babies, what matters most to her right now and why, definitions of grace and the presence of grace in her current experience and experiences she's had with clients and patients over the years, death as a calling, how life and death are connected, how important it is to talk about death, how we need to find ways to be more comfortable with this and more.

As I'm feeling more compelled to approach interviews this year - we just hit record and went until we felt complete, which was about 90 minutes.

I hope you'll be transformed and moved by this tender conversation, share it with loved ones and use it to spark your own inquiries and explorations of your relationship to death and dying and any shifts you may want to make around that.

Big love,

E

This is not the typical conversation about perfectionism, y'all, and I am warning you upfront, that you'll probably want to listen to it at least three or four times.

Today my guest is my dear friend Jessica Fish, who is also (and she would likely not own up to this...) a genius.

Her big truth was around the importance of community and external affirmation.

From there we talked about practicing radical encouragement in your relationships and how we cannot rely on self-regulation alone. We talked about the myth of "inconveniencing people," how we need to be honest about our bandwidth and over-giving tendencies, and all the offshoots of perfectionism like overachieving, having unreasonably high standards for ourselves, and the trap of "high performance."

She also explained how all of this keeps us in individual mindsets which keep us upholding dominant cultural narratives and norms.

She shared an exercise with us that she uses in her Divesting from Perfectionism workshops that literally changes people's lives on the spot, and she walked me through the fantasy of the "Ideal Self" that many of us have, and how it harms us.

We also explored what being in community with people who will hold you compassionately accountable and how we can all leverage the things we're really good at as our contribution to dismantling systems of oppression.

It's a juicy and meaty conversation.

Enjoy!

It's our first crack at the new format and I'm so excited to share it with you!

In this episode you get to be a fly on the wall during some Q+A at one of my Wild Soul Movement Weekend Workshops. At the end of each day, I open it up for questions about anything and everything. Because attendees have been doing healing and embodiment work all day, their questions are thoughtful, nuanced, and deep.

In this session I answer two different questions about navigating adult friendships: The first is around how to support a friend who is stuck and listening to them talk about the same things over and over again has become draining because you don't now how to help them. The other is about how to repair or move forward in a friendship after there's been a fracture, issue or confrontation.

I also got into healing the mother wound, how to cultivate play in your life- especially if you were a parentified child or feel like you have so many responsibilities now, there's no room for playfulness in adulthood. Lastly, I answered a really fun question about my favorite things to include in online dating profiles and the kinds of questions I like to ask potential dates.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Wild ones...very excited to share four points with you today in the realm of Love, Dating, Sex + Intimacy.

With Valentine's Day coming up, whether you're single or in a relationship the artificial pressure can get intense. The four things we're getting into today could help you navigate that. And they're also incredibly valuable regardless of the time of year.

The Love, Dating, Sex + Intimacy points I'm covering today are:

  • Chemistry does not equal compatibility
  • What I call, "Medicine for the 'too much' wound." Hint: it has to do with cultivating your willingness to be handled. And I have a great story from an event I taught at in 2015 where this concept was introduced to me.
  •  How people with tough exteriors often also have the most sensitive interiors.
  • And finally, Truth talk for open-hearted people: Physical intimacy without emotional safety is risky business.

Enjoy, share, find me on Instagram or shoot an email over to hello@wildsoulmovement.com and let me know what you think or what resonates for you!

xo,

E

I'm always excited to share guests with you, but this week, I finally got my dear friend Staci Jordan Shelton on the show. It took me over a year...maybe longer. And you will see, it was worth the wait!

Staci's big truth was that she doesn't let people gaslight themselves. From there we discussed what gaslighting actually is and how it functions since it's a term that gets thrown around a lot.

We talked about the importance of context, the difference between shame and accountability and why conflict isn't bad; and we got into why cancel culture isn't the way, but ignoring patterns of behavior doesn't help people get free either.

We also touched on implementation and how sustained change can only happen over time, the lies that hold people hostage, the importance of having hobbies and something I've been thinking about so much in the last year - what it's like to be the strong friend and how to navigate getting the support you need, too, even if people don't think you need it!

Enjoy, share, and let us know what you think!

xo,

In a recent podcast listener survey, a lot of you listed trauma and healing under topics you'd like to see explored more in 2020 on the show, so I hope you enjoy today's guest, Irene Lyon who is a nervous system expert and somatic practitioner!

Her big truth was that we're at a point in time where we have the science, research, practices and immediacy to heal deep stuff. We talked about what somatic work is, the difference between the parasympathetic and the sympathetic nervous systems and touched on Polyvagal Theory.

She helped me understand the difference between trauma trained and trauma informed - a very important distinction as we all consider practitioners, guides, teachers and coaches in various areas of our lives.

And we also got into neuroception, our sensitivity to safety or danger, common trauma responses that people might not realize is their trauma talking, and how we can value the health that IS present.

It's a great chat, you might want to listen more than once. Enjoy and share!

It's the final episode in the Journey Into the Wild Soul!!

If you've been tuning in over the last several weeks, you know we've covered all kinds of juicy things, from deep committed practice and the importance of integration, to surrender, releasing, trust, receptivity, passion, purpose, love, truth and how EMBODIMENT is one of the most effective ways to bring it all together and LIVE it.

Might sound like a tall order, but it's actually quite elegant and practical when you get down to it!

In today's episode rather than a year in a review or an entire preview of 2020, I've framed it in a way that integrates the immense reflection, integration and clarity December provided for me.

I have mentioned elsewhere that I was REALLY into moving into a new decade.

What I got really into was reflecting on who I had become, the lessons I had learned and the things, habits, people and etc I had completed with over that decade.

In that reflection were a few things that had to do with BEING SUPER HONEST WITH MYSELF about what has worked in the past and what actually honors who I am now.

It’s always exciting when new truths reveal themselves, and sometimes it’s also inconvenient, but that’s life isn’t it - the best choices are not always the easiest ones to follow or make.

When you are connected to your body, heart, soul and inner authority - you just know better than to ignore the nudges, though.

One last note - just because 2020 has begun, doesn’t mean you can't do this type of reflection yourself if you have yet to or find yourself with the desire after listening to this episode.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!
