    72. Connecting at the Heart-Level, Fostering Better Relationships, Loving With Detachment and Healing Addictions with Nonviolent Communication and Wayland Myers, PhD

    Everyone wants to have good relationships, not only with others but also with ourselves! My guest today is clinical psychologist Wayland Myers and he literally wrote a book on how to do it!

    We get into so many important, yet sensitive topics concerning how we communicate with others and how we can do it better to ultimately result in more love, understanding and connection. And we also talk about how to effectively navigate life when someone you love is struggling with addiction. Wayland shares his method of “loving with detachment” and we talk about why it can be the best thing for both parties. I love this show – it’s so important and I know you’ll agree! Thank you for listening /watching and if you feel inclined to share than lovely! ☺

    Wayland Myer’s extensive career extends from beginnings in mechanical engineering to the world of social studies and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the CA School of Professional Psychology in San Diego Oh, followed by work in management consulting for various types of business, two 11 year stints of private practice, founding a hospice patient care and volunteer program, serving as president of the board for a second hospice for a 10 year period and working as a roving psychologist at a large medical hospital for two years. He has vast experience in the method of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and worked closely with the practice’s founder, Marshall Rosenberg, Ph.D. In addition, Wayland is author of a very popular book: Nonviolent Communication: The Basics As I Know and Use Them which I have and is fantastic!

    No doubt we are in unprecedented times. Many cultures and civilizations have prophesied that humanity is on the verge of a great awakening. Bottom line is, it's time to put on our Big Girl/Big Boy pants now and step up from our limited, small self into our larger, more empowered big Self, or Master Self!

    My guest today is popular repeat guest, Metaphysical Coach, Rosanne Grace. In this episode, Rosanne gives practical tips and guidance on how to navigate our way during this period so we can rise to the challenge and be better for it.

    70. Connecting to Your Sacred Feminine Through Indigenous Wisdom, "Her"-story and Help Transitioning From a Traditional Masculine-Structured Career to a More Feminine Calling with Liz Childs Kelly

    70. Connecting to Your Sacred Feminine Through Indigenous Wisdom, "Her"-story and Help Transitioning From a Traditional Masculine-Structured Career to a More Feminine Calling with Liz Childs Kelly

    If you feel out of sync with our culture, it's probably not you. As women, we are attempting to thrive in a culture that was never designed for us or even with our input or needs in mind, completed stripped from our histories and our sacred practices. This is enough to make anyone feel crazy. And it's OK to reject it all and begin forging your own path. 

    - Liz Childs Kelly

    Today we sit down with my fascinating new friend, Liz Childs Kelly. I learned a lot from Liz on this show and I also found her to be a wonderful role model for modern women, regardless of age, of someone who is self-directed, heart-connected, gentle and feminine yet also clearly in her own power. If you're a women who wants to connect more with your own Sacred Feminine, this show's for you!

    Enjoy - and please consider sharing or leaving a review on iTunes :)

    Liz Childs Kelly is a writer, Sacred Feminine researcher and educator, community builder, and initiated priestess in the 13 Moons Lineage. She is also the host of the Home to Her podcast, which is dedicated to amplifying the voices of the Sacred Feminine. She is especially passionate about increasing women's spiritual literacy and advancing awareness of our collective sacred Herstory. Liz's writing has been published on Rebelle Society, Role Reboot, and Braided Way Magazine, and she is a featured writer for Medium's Human Parts publication. She is currently in the process of completing her first book, titled Home to Her: Reclaiming the Wisdom of the Sacred Feminine. After many years living in California, Liz and her family recently relocated to rural Virginia, where they currently live on the ancestral lands of the Monacan people.

    68. How to Make Adult Friends: Why It's So Hard, 6 Common Roadblocks and Tips for Getting to Compatibility, Commitment and Chemistry

    68. How to Make Adult Friends: Why It's So Hard, 6 Common Roadblocks and Tips for Getting to Compatibility, Commitment and Chemistry

    Although as a society we're more digitally connected than ever before, we are also less emotionally connected. Many adults feel chronically lonely and lacking in real connection, intimacy, support and bonding which are all things that are necessary for a healthy mind, body and spirit. We all need friends and people in our lives we can count on, share intimacy and trust with and be our true selves around.

    But why is it so hard to make new friends as an adult these days?! 

    I recently came across an article in Psychology Today Magazine by Ahona Guha who is a clinical and forensic psychologist practicing in Melbourne, Australia. The article was titled: The Art of Making Adult Friends and I wanted to share it with you.

    *Be sure you listen to the end where I mention the "3 C's" necessary for a successful relationship as well as the MOST ATTRACTIVE quality you can have!

    67. The Dark Feminine: Cultivating Your Sensuality and Feminine Essence and Channeling Righteous Anger with Jonita Dsouza

    67. The Dark Feminine: Cultivating Your Sensuality and Feminine Essence and Channeling Righteous Anger with Jonita Dsouza

    Do you struggle with overwhelm, burnout and lack of OOMPH, passion and sensuality? (I know, most of us, right?!) 

    Well, you're gonna love this episode!

    My guest today is Jonita Dsouza and she has quite a story. Jonita was born and raised in the tropical islands of Andaman, India, and left home at the age of 17 to find her identity. Little did she know that the awareness that she was seeking would bring her to London, UK where she found the freedom and expression of her womanhood. Soon she was caught in the rat race and competition of the Western world, burnt out with severe illnesses which made her realize that she had to lose her societal identity to discover her real essence.

    After several years of immersing herself in to the spiritual learnings of the divine feminine and discovering her real essence as a woman, she made the decision to pass on this wisdom to as many women around and invite them on a journey of exploring their femininity. In 2012, Jonita founded the company ‘Exploring Femininity’ running monthly online women’s circles, workshops, sacred feminine retreats and private coaching.
