    Coming Back to Yourself & Creating Conscious Relationships with Leila Dylla

    Coming Back to Yourself & Creating Conscious Relationships with Leila Dylla

    "Who we are is eternal. Everything else is temporary."
    -Leila Dylla
     
    The incredible Leila Dylla is joining us today, and this was a beautiful treat.
    She has such a wide and varied story and background, and brings with her an incredibly holistic approach to how she shows up.
    Leila is inspiring the heart of change around the world through her writing, speaking, and passionate teaching.  As a leader in the modern day spiritual and wellness world, she has been teaching Yoga Asana for over a decade, and is deeply inspired by the path of Bhakti Yoga, energy medicine, transcendental psychology & breath work. 
    She spent the last 8 years sharing her insights leading group retreats, and Yoga Teacher Trainings. Leila now specializes in trauma informed life coaching, as she guides women back to their Feminine embodiment, Truth, and authentic personal power. 
    Leila’s background in kinesiology, nutrition, rehabilitative movement, and energy medicine, gives her rare insight into the body and the health challenges faced by women navigating our current culture. 
    Her deepest passion lies in unraveling and empowering the divine feminine force of the world, and awakening the individual hearts of her clients. 
    She is an intuitive, self-proclaimed comedian (I can fully attest to her hilarity) and light hearted enthusiast of sacred living. Leila and her dog Folly are usually found in the sunshine, with a cup of coffee in hand.
    This conversation with Leila was nothing short of magical. It may have taken us a few months to make it happen, but it was well worth the wait!
    We're going into:
    Radical self approval Learning how to move through emotions without having them swallow us Developing a flexible nervous system - especially when it comes to matters of the heart. How conscious relationships can be a source of deep healing The idea of receiving - for both men and women Living a full, technicolour life and everything that involves.  
    And so much more than could ever be listed in a few bullet points, truly.
    I'm pretty sure if Leila was a colour, she would be a panoply of every colour of the rainbow, and it comes through in every moment of this discussion.
    Take a listen, and be sure to connect with Leila below!

    Slowly, Slowly, Slowly, Suddenly: Setting Intentions for a New Year

    Slowly, Slowly, Slowly, Suddenly: Setting Intentions for a New Year

    I've never been about the “new year, new you” b******t.
    What I AM about is taking inspired action towards the person you continue to become, peeling back the layers to remember who you’ve always been, and continuing to move forward with hope in your heart.
    We're talking today about the collective exhaustion of the past year (or two) and focusing on setting intentions moving into the new year that are more about how you’re going to show up overall consistently -while still leaving room for the messy parts of yourself to make an appearance.
    Intention is about how you want to feel, what you want to embody, how you want to show up for yourself and others.
    And when we can focus on that part, you'll be open and ready to receive the beautiful things coming your way.

    Age Gap Relationships & Compatibility with Dr. Jade Teta

    Age Gap Relationships & Compatibility with Dr. Jade Teta

    My bestie Dr. Jade Teta is back for our ongoing series around relationships, and today's is about a growing trend: relationships where the partners are 10 - 20 years or more apart.
    Age gap relationships are often surrounded by stigma, and people involved in a relationship where one is much older than the other are often more susceptible to the opinions and judgments of someone else. 
    There are a lot of other factors to be taken into account when starting a relationship as well, including differences between life experiences, maturity, specific goals in life, and overall lifestyle.
    Jade and I are drawing from our personal experiences in this realm along with the scientific research about how to handle age gap relationships and the pros and cons of going this route and some of the considerations to think about. And ultimately, both parties will need to examine their own levels of confidence, self-consciousness, comfort, and most of all: preparation to deal with potential issues of compatibility.

    An Excerpt From My Journal: The Vulnerability & Fullness of Gratitude

    An Excerpt From My Journal: The Vulnerability & Fullness of Gratitude

    First up: Join Becoming YOU, the brand new 4-week small group coaching program I'm launching all about reminding yourself exactly who the f*ck you are.
    For more details, click here. We kick off Tuesday, November 30th @ 7pm EST. Only 10 spots available, there are still a few left!
    And you're going to want to join my email list  because there's a LOT happening in 2022 and if we're email friends, you'll be the first to have the details pop into your inbox!
     
    WHEW....this episode feels like I bared a little piece of my soul to you.
    I have a physical journal, but sometimes if it's not around or if I can feel words flowing out of me so fast I don't know what to do with them all, I'll quickly jot them down in my phone instead.
    I was searching through my notes app looking for something when I came across an entry I wrote back in May, and when I re-read it, intuition told me that someone else needed to hear it.
    This is a conversation about the fullness of life. The pleasure, the pain and everything in between. The intimate power of human connection and how it transforms us to our very core.
    It's about learning to lean into every corner of life and allowing yourself to grow through it all.
    It's about love, in every sense of the word.
    This is the most emotional episode I've ever released. I hope a snippet of my inner world helps you to transform your own.

    Why I Intentionally Spent My Birthday Alone & Taking Your Power Back

    Why I Intentionally Spent My Birthday Alone & Taking Your Power Back

    First up: Join Becoming YOU, the brand new 4-week small group coaching program I'm launching all about reminding yourself exactly who the f*ck you are.
    For more details, click here. We kick off Tuesday, November 30th @ 7pm EST. Only 10 spots available, there are still a few left!
    And you're going to want to join my email list  because there's a LOT happening in 2022 and if we're email friends, you'll be the first to have the details pop into your inbox!
     
    I turned 35 on the weekend, and I decided many months ago I wanted to very intentionally spend my birthday entirely on my own and to do something special for myself to make it totally different.
    Multiple people in my life wanted to make plans and I refused all of them (I love you all! 😘)
    Instead, I booked a long weekend in downtown Toronto, took myself out for some incredible solo meals, had a massage, got in a couple workouts (I never miss my birthday workout), got in a couple of naps, walked a LOT, checked out some cool sights, and even got myself an adorable slice of birthday cake from an amazing bakery.
    The point of this is not to preach self-care at you.
    I am, however, encouraging you to take your power back.
    Stop waiting for other people to make something happen for you. And stop expecting others to treat you better than you treat yourself.
    Start showing yourself the kind of love you give to everyone else.
    We're diving into the details of all of this, along with how you can take your power back and show up for yourself in whole new ways.

    The Betrayed & Betrayer: Growing From Infidelity with Dr. Jade Teta

    The Betrayed & Betrayer: Growing From Infidelity with Dr. Jade Teta

    I guarantee you've never heard a podcast episode quite like this one before.
    Dr. Jade Teta is one of my closest friends in the world, and we're doing an ongoing series around relationships.
    This topic around betrayal and infidelity is a BIG one. It's taboo, it's tough to discuss, and what I want to underscore the most is how much pain there is on every side of the equation.
    I truly believe that in order to heal and move forward, both sides need to have a better understanding of what each other goes through when moving through this type of experience. It's why I suggested to Jade that we cover this incredibly important topic, and there's also a huge lack of support for those looking to heal as the ones who stepped outside of the relationship.
    This episode can offer some unique perspectives, because Jade has been both the betrayer and the betrayed, while I have experienced deep betrayal.
    Both of us have used our experiences to identify our own dysfunctions in relationships and learn, grow, mature and develop when it comes to how we show up for partners in relationships.
    We're talking:
    How to heal from betrayal (both the betrayed and betrayed) Signs someone is likely to cheat Why people cheat Using the experience to spot our dysfunctions How to develop an honor code Whole new levels of openness and honesty  
    This is one you're not going to want to miss, and I can also guarantee that some of this is going to make you uncomfortable to hear. Sit with it, take a look at how it may trigger you, and consider the different sides of the equation.
