How can we let sacredness be the medicine for so much that ails us? In life, love, work, and all our relationships?

Today we’re diving into sacredness, relational healing, how both can really influence collective and systemic shifts in the world. 

Are your relationships deeply nourishing? Do they feel supportive and fulfilling? Or are you finding yourself drained from dealing with bad behavior, emotional immaturity, or unhealed trauma?

This week, I want to invite you into some deeper thinking & awareness around how you engage with people.

Personally, I’ve had to heal and grow a lot in this area with - 

  • Creating better boundaries that honor my relationships and myself
  • Building better communication with the people in my life
  • Lowering my tolerance for bad behavior while ALSO giving people the opportunity to repair poor behaviors
  • And, allowing myself to bring sacredness into everything I do

Ultimately, creating reciprocal, nourishing & supportive relationships is about honoring the inherent sacredness in all of us and honoring the different ways we each love. 

Join me for this deeper conversation around how you’re engaging with the people in your life and the healing that can be found in honoring and embracing the sacredness of ALL life. 

In episode 405 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss:

  • [9:33] Healing from codependency & unearned benefits of the doubt
  • [11:25] Saying NO to bad behavior, emotional immaturity & unhealed trauma responses 
  • [14:08] Discerning what is and is NOT your business and eliminating distractions so you can expand your capacity for the things that are in alignment for YOU
  • [17:17] How to tell if your exchanges are generative, regenerative, or reciprocal - and why this matters
  • [20:25] Why you should give the MOST of your energy to THIS kind of relationship
  • [27:50] Embracing sacredness as a way of healing ANYTHING - individually, collectively, or systematically

We can feel the divide in the world - on political ideology, public health, and the environment (to name a few!)

Is there a way to learn to live together, to resolve the conflict, and to restore relationships?

My friend Kerra Bolton is an outstanding journalist & author who has worked as a freelance writer for CNN and is a winner of the NY Times Award for Outstanding Journalism.

This week, I invited Kerra to discuss the impact of building community through restorative practices.

We are diving into her take on how to build restorative communities and her journey to writing her book. She shares some tips on how to work through violations or ruptures within a community, some powerful learning and what the process of a true restorative practice looks like. 

You don’t want to miss her refreshing take on the way politics is evolving and playing a role in our culture, and how we can minimize divides through these restorative practices. 

You know how much we love talking about growth and change on this show - come learn something with me, she has a lot to share!

When it comes to the philosophy of non-monogamy, there can be a lot of questions: Is it polyamory or an open relationship? Do we have to tell each other about other partners? Is it a relationship or just sex? Today’s episode is all about intimacy and non-monogamy and how people connect and relate to each other in that world, with lots of nuggets that apply to ALL relationships, whether monogamous or not. In today’s episode, I’m breaking this all down with Marcia Baczynski (aka Marcia B.) 

Do you geek out on consent, communication, intimacy, how we relate to each other and connect, and why we engage in romantic and sexual relationships in the first place? You’re not going to want to miss this episode!

In episode 403 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss:

  • (5:48) The difference between non-monogamy and polyamory
  • (10:28) Important and relevant things to communicate with your partner(s), particularly when you’re in a non-monogamous relationship (and why the complexity of communication grows exponentially—not linearly—in non-monogamous relationships)
  • (12:50) Ethical non-monogamy vs consensual non-monogamy: what’s the difference and do they mean the same thing? (And Marcia’s preferred term here) How do you determine if one non-monogamous relationship is ethical or not?
  • (32:17) Our best tips for living the lifestyle that works the best for YOU (and one really important thing to keep in mind when navigating non-monogamy)
  • (44:08) TWO things that are so important to pay attention to when it comes to your relationships and what to hone in on so that you can get your desires met more often

Hustle culture has too many people completely burnt out these days. Thinking that you have to constantly be “on” is doing a disservice to your mental, emotional, and physical health—and to your business. 

There’s a difference between being “on” all the time and being ready. There’s a difference between hustling and being intentional.

When you are ready, when you stay ready, you can own your skills and step into your expertise.

In this episode, I’m chatting with my friend Trudi Lebrón about all things business. We’re deep diving into how to find joy in just being, the power of coaching and embodiment work, and the nuances of capitalism. It’s a conversation about making a true and lasting impact.

We also talk about her new book, The Antiracist Business Book, and why she chose to focus on business and the coaching industry. She also shares about her new professional development program, The Art and Science of Coaching.

The topics in this episode couldn’t be more relevant to where we are as a society, and I hope you’ll be able to apply some of these concepts and ideas to the growth of your own life and business (if you have one!).

In episode 402 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss:

  • [03:15] How Trudi is finding the joy in just being and spending time with friends and family
  • [06:36] How two people’s interpretations of encouragement can be very different
  • [11:22] Trudi’s experience meeting Fatman Scoop and getting valuable business and sales advice
  • [20:25] Being ready for opportunities that come your way
  • [23:54] Why Trudi chose business and the coaching industry for the angle of her antiracist book
  • [33:38] How the recent Patagonia sale embodies the concept of Just Commerce
  • [40:50] Trudi’s belief in the power of coaching and business vs. coaching skills
  • [46:03] Why Trudi created her new professional development program, The Art and Science of Coaching
  • [50:33] How embodiment work can you help you both professionally and personally

Christopher Rivas is a multi-talented, multi-dimensional writer, speaker, and storyteller to name just a few of his skills. He’s the author of the soon-to-be published book Brown Enough and creator of the Rubirosa podcast. His work encourages us to ask deeper questions about our culture, our histories, and our relationships to the people in our lives.

Today, he’s the first man I’ve had on the Embodied podcast in two years. Christopher and I talk about how we both relate to our Brownness, how whiteness and capitalism have, intentionally or not, separated us from aspects of our cultural heritage, and how storytelling can connect us with pieces of our history we feel removed from.

Christopher shares story after story with us in this episode, from humorous anecdotes about a ridiculously placed shower to heartfelt recollections of how his work allowed his father to reflect on his own assimilation into white culture. 

I hope this episode encourages you to keep digging into your own healing and your ancestral history, to keep reaching out with empathy and understanding to those around you, and to learn to build your own stories that can connect you with your own individual culture and your inner self.

In episode 401 we discuss:

[01:19] An introduction to Christopher and his work on storytelling


[08:43] How Christopher’s dating life helped him to reevaluate what he’d been taught about whiteness, beauty, and culture


[13:02] Defining “body of culture” and how it affects Brown people


[17:31] How Christopher’s father and his assimilation into white culture influenced Christopher’s work


[21:22] The healing effect that Christopher’s storytelling work has had on his father and his ability to connect to his original culture


[27:38] The craziest story about LA and inappropriately installed showers from Christopher’s book 


[33:32] How learning a new language can be a deeply humbling and empathic experience


[40:41] How Christopher views climate and infrastructure reform as an opportunity to express empathy and care for our neighbors


[44:15] How Christopher discovered the real James Bond (he was Dominican) and why he became so determined to share this story with the rest of world


[51:39] Why stories like Rubirosa offer everyone, regardless of their culture, an opportunity to challenge their heroes and ask better questions about their history


[59:33] Why accepting your multidimensionality and rejecting the “boxes” society places us in can open you up to new realities
