Anger. Why is it so hard to feel it?
Listen on iTunes | Listen on Spotify | Subscribe to the Podcast My 2-year-old is giving me an education on anger. Navigating how to parent a fiery little human has me reflecting on how I meet with and ‘manage’ my anger, and what I want to teach and model for her. As someone who works professionally in the realm of emotional embodiment, it’s been a deep contemplation because I see this challenge – to meet and express our anger – come up so much in coaching with women. We fear our anger. We worry it will be destructive or damaging. […]

Embracing The Season You’re In
Listen on iTunes | Listen on Spotify | Subscribe to the Podcast It’s autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere and despite the stunning dappled light through the amber leaves, I’ve been feeling a little heavy (not physically, more emotionally) & not as inspired as usual. At first I unconsciously approached this change in my ‘mood’ as a problem to fix (& I thought I’d email you on the other side of it). But I’ve realized two things: 1. This mood is here to stay. 2. It’s not a mood – it’s a shift in the season I’m embodying. Just like […]

Why do I skip my devotional practice (even though I really want to do it!)?
Listen on iTunes | Listen on Spotify | Subscribe to the Podcast Do you have a devotional practice (such as feminine embodiment, meditation, yoga, movement practice, journaling) that you want to do… but just don’t? Yesterday I was speaking with a peer & participant in our Coaching Certification program. As part of her personal mastery she desired to dive deep into feminine embodiment movement practices, yet for the past two weeks, despite best intentions, had yet to do a single practice. I got it. I’ve been there. And I’ll be there again. While I’m aware of how well, centered, grounded, […]

Coaching From The Heart, Not The Head
Listen on iTunes | Listen on Spotify | Subscribe to the Podcast Recently I was asked, “how can I coach more from my heart, instead of my head? In sessions with clients, I’m stressing about what to do next and if the session will end well. I’m sure my client can feel it”. If you’ve ever overplanned or controlled your sessions, thought “what am I going to say next?!” or been exhausted before it began – this is the perfect podcast for you. Once upon a time if a client or friend opened up to me about something vulnerable or […]

Emotional Eating, Diet & Demonizing the Body, Interview with Alishia McCullough
Listen on iTunes | Listen on Spotify | Subscribe to the Podcast I’m yet to meet a woman who doesn’t have some internalized struggle with body image, weight or beauty. The narrative of how we ‘should’ look, what is ‘beautiful’ and how ‘big’ our bodies are allowed to be is impossible to internalize. It’s also just as challenging to deconstruct & redefine on our own terms. In today’s interview we’ve invited Licensed Mental Health Therapist & anti-racism eating disorder specialist Alishia McCullough to speak with us about emotional eating, diet and emonizing the black body. In our conversation we’re breaking […]
