    The Alchemy of Interconnection and Holding Paradox in Covidien Times w/ Johanna Rivera

    The Alchemy of Interconnection and Holding Paradox in Covidien Times w/ Johanna Rivera

    This is a conversation between two dear friends, whose red thread connection stretches over land, sea, and challenging times. Listen to Joahnna Rivera and Amber Samaya share from their hearts about the complexity of navigating Covidien times, the power of compassionate witness and friendship, the importance of naming what must be named, allowing ourselves to grieve for our world, and entering into personal ritual and creativity to bring coherence around our choice to vaccinate as part of the alchemy of interconnection!

    About Johanna:
    I am an apprentice of the land, and a keeper of the mysteries of feminine cycles. A wild woman, who is connected to herself, her intuition, her inner landscape, and who listens to the messages of the earth. Remembering the wisdom within, which is buried in our bones and our wombs.

    What I share has been shaped by my years working on women’s rights and environmental justice in Iraq and has evolved into a more spiritual journey reclaiming our sovereignty as women and being in deep devotion to the Earth. As we root into our bodies, and live in reciprocity with the earth, we will rise as wild and wise women.

    Embodying the Artist Archetype and Ushering In a New Paradigm w/ Sylvia Becker-Hill

    Embodying the Artist Archetype and Ushering In a New Paradigm w/ Sylvia Becker-Hill

    In this episode I sit down with Artist, Teacher, Coach and Women's Empowerment Advocate, Sylvia Becker-Hill to talk about the shift away from patriarchy and towards a new paradigm where justice, human and other than human life, kindness, and a whole and healthy planet are all honored and taken into considering every step of the way.
    Sylvia shares her reflections on the archetypal transformation from some of the more negative aspects of the warrior archetype to that of the  'Artist' or creative. This shift has great potential on both the personal and transpersonal level. 
    Sylvia also expresses the importance of honoring the parts of our current paradigm that have been useful, and not 'throwing everything out' or trying to revert back to ancient matriarchal structures that also had their own power imbalances. Sylvia believes we should instead glean what has been valuable from both paradigms and take these forward with us into the next place we are collectively journeying toward and co-creating.
    Sylvia's Bio
    I believe creativity is your birthright and suppressed creativity leads to in-authenticity, depression and sickness. After decades of channeling my creativity through my corporate clients to empower their success, I finally found my way back home to the artist I always was.

    I graduated successfully from the Color of Women Certified Art Teacher training with Shiloh Sophia, founder of the MUSEA global art movement. Intentional Creativity is for me self healing, self liberation and self empowerment. Merging it with my treasure chest of coaching and facilitation methods and sharing this cocktail of empowering transformation with you is my path forward.

    I live with my New Zealand husband and our two teenage boys in a Southern California garden paradise full of old citrus trees, hummingbirds and wild rabbits. When I'm not empowering leaders around the world in coaching sessions using Zoom, you will find me reading in my hammock or painting in my whimsical art studio nestled under the shade of a California pepper tree at the back of our garden.

    Sense of place and land acknowledgment
    This podcast was recorded from my room overlooking grass, trees, and big sky on the traditional unceded, stolen, territory of the Tla'amin Nation. To them I offer my respect, witness, and gratitude for the profound relationship of care and stewardship they have maintained in this beautiful place for time immemorial, and for the teachings of interconnection and thinking 7 generations into the future that are shaping me in new ways. As a settler, brought up in a white supremacist culture that lacks honor, I am grateful and humbled by the invitation to see the world in this sacred, respectful, and intimate way.

    The Desire Map, Listening to the Voice of the Soul + Shifting the Conflict and Drama Triangle w/ AnnMarie McKenzie

    The Desire Map, Listening to the Voice of the Soul + Shifting the Conflict and Drama Triangle w/ AnnMarie McKenzie

    You’re on an adventure for the soul. Whether that means you’re chasing mountain tops or conquering complex life situations or business challenges, you want to make every moment count. You find satisfaction is being an explorer. You don’t just live, you experience. 
    You understand that life has texture and crave, real authentic support during those pivotal moments we all confront. This is why I invited Ann Marie McKenzie to join me on the Podcast today. 
    Ann Marie counsels deeply in self-leadership through emotional intelligence, guiding you to create a handcrafted life and business that intentionally feels good. She works with people who are ready to get open about living soulfully and is the go-to experiential Master Desire Map Mentor and Transformation Guide to living and doing business in ways that sustain the soul. 
    Meditation, doTERRA essential oils, and Truthbomb readings are just some of the many spiritual tools she uses to strengthen the heart-mind connection in her sessions.
    Ann Marie offers curated intimate programs for entrepreneurs, corporations, businesses, and women’s circles providing feelings-based experiences that encourage people to get real, get creative, get messy - and get clear. 

    Our conversation covers some deep territory and really left me feeling inspired and re-ignited in my passion for living a life that is deeply connected to and led by my soul. This ability to know how we want to feel and bring those feeling states into being inside our lived experiences is perhaps more poignant right now than ever.
    We talk about..
    ❤ The powerful and profound Desire Map process and the life areas it walks us through - Lifestyle & Livelihood, Creativity & Learning, Body & Wellness, Relationships & Society, Essence & Spirituality
    🧡 The great sifting experience we're having, and the impacts of physical distancing, spending more time at home with family, spouses, or alone, and the emotional impacts of this
    💛 Our current cultural shutdown providing us the time for reflection and self connection (and the perfect time for diving into the Desire Map!)
    💚 The mirror effect of our personal transformation impacting the collective
    💙 The conflict and drama triangle - how we can transform the Persecutor, Victim, and Rescuer reactions to the Challenger, Creator, and Collaborator responses instead!
    💜 Understanding the value of healthy 'selfishness' and embracing unexpected gifts of time
    💕Learning how to give from the overflow
    May this be good medicine for your hearts. May you consider how you *actually* want to feel, and...go after it. Even now.
     To connect with AnnMarie, you can find her in the following quantum online spaces:

    doTERRA Wellness Advocate site: https://www.doterra.com/US/en/site/annmariemckenzie
    Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/annmariemckenzie13/  @annmariemckenzie13

    AnnMarie is open and willing to guide you and your friends and family through the Desire Map. It's always best done in groups of people who dig each other's company and will cheer each other on in their Core Desired Feelings. So get in touch with her if you and your Beloveds would like to organize an online Desire Map group facilitation - it is a powerful powerful process. I've done it myself 3 times and it has shifted my life in measurable ways each time.

    A review of COVID19 + embracing the One Health paradigm w/ bioscientist and artist, Dr. Irene de Brice

    A review of COVID19 + embracing the One Health paradigm w/ bioscientist and artist, Dr. Irene de Brice

    It has been quite a powerful and dynamic week and month for many of us as we face a rapidly shifting world in light of the COVID19 'pandemic'. There are other things pulling at our hearts like Indigenous land sovereignty, global climate destabilization, young people fighting for a democracy in China, and the impacts of late Capitalism on our hearts, bodies, minds, environments and social fabric. But here we are - holding all of this - and also in the process of having to socially distance ourselves from each other when, in so many ways and for so many reasons, we want to be showing up in community, organizing, standing on frontlines...together. We want to be in service to all life. There is uncertainty here. And big brazen paradox. 

    My guest today is someone who understands well what it means to walk with paradox. 

    Dr. Iréne de Brice is Costa Rican bioscientist, certified holistic health practitioner and herbalist, mystic and self-taught artist. During her formal education she completed graduate programs in biosciences, and also completed a MS in Natural Health and Lifestyles in 2011.
    Much like our current reality, her life has been split in a dualism. On one side, her scientific body of work has revolved around molecular virology and most recently, infectious disease epidemiology. On the other, she has held on to natural artistic skills from early childhood and has sought nourishment in natural health studies and practices, lifelines that have helped her manage a lifelong struggle with anxiety and high-functioning depression. 

    Holding it all in the balance, as a scientist, an artist, and a womxn committed to honoring the sacred and uplifting the HUEmxn experience, Irene aims to live a humble life of service anchored in the Socratic paradox. All she knows...is that she knows nothing. (Even after 13 years of intense scientific training!)

    This is a SPECIAL episode, unplanned but emergent, as we are gifted with Irene's knowledge and insight to help us navigate these troubled waters. 

    In this conversation we cover SARS-CoV-2 (COVID19), studying and understanding Life, the catharsis of art, science +/vs spirituality, One Health, why slowing down is good medicine, checking our privilege even during crises, and how we can care for each other in this dynamic time. 🙌🏽⭕️
    A very informative and powerful episode that I hope will be good medicine for you.

    Living the Adventure of Voluntary Simplicity w/ Amanda Shale (and Frank!)

    Living the Adventure of Voluntary Simplicity w/ Amanda Shale (and Frank!)

    As a young girl a framed drawing of two bears sharing a tricycle accompanied with the words ‘simple pleasures, life treasures’ hung on Amanda Shale’s bedroom wall. It is no wonder then, that later in university when she learned about the intentional lifestyle of Voluntary Simplicity through a reading group that she felt a strong resonance and has been on this mindful path ever since. Slowly and steadily she applied it to all aspects of her life, finding contentment with ever less comforts and belongings until we come to this current iteration of her journey. Trading the pursuit of wealth and status for a spiritually satisfying life she has grown into a self-assured and storied wild woman now in her mid-thirties.

    And the short version? She is a dog mom, a van dweller of 6 years, adventurer, forager, podcaster, thru-hiker, photographer and writer.

    Amanda speaks with me today about her long-term commitment to voluntary simplicity, her practice of presence when facing the harshness of both the physical and mental environments she finds herself, and the many lessons she has learned in her life as an outdoor adventurer, van dweller, and 'perpetual visitor' on the earth.

    Amanda offers some beautiful wisdom and her lifestyle and personal story are both inspirational and paradigm shifting!

    Hoping you enjoy this chat between the two of us - me, from my cabin in the woods, and Amanda, in a secret magical location somewhere in the desert outside of Sodona where she found 4 bars of perfect cell reception! Yahooo!

Speaks to my heart

This is a great podcast for men too. The conversation topics and guests are relevant to becoming a more wholesome human and creating better relations with ourselves, other beings and our planet. Definitely my favourite podcast at the moment.

Refreshing!

Amber‘s voice is addictive. It’s so refreshing to listen to lesser known strong females who are full of wisdom and critical insight. I look forward to each release!
