    #FreeFlowFriday - Self-Love Culture

    Today's episode was inspired by a video I saw of fitness professional Kaisa Keranen, talking about toxic self-love culture.  It got me thinking about self-love and self-compassion, which I have been really focusing a lot of my content on this month.  I wanted to share my thoughts on this topic and be honest about the challenges of the practice of self-love.  Stick around until the end, where I offer some affirmations to take with you through the day.

    #FreeFlowFriday - The Art of Listening

    #FreeFlowFriday - The Art of Listening

    This week's topic was inspired by a conversation I heard on another podcast with Julia Cameron, author of 'The Artist's Way'.  Her new book 'The Listening Path: The Creative Art of Attention' is a program to help us become better listeners.  Hearing her speak got me thinking about the importance and power of actively listening to each other and ourselves, and how this can connect us on a deeper level, and cultivate more peace in the world.

Coach Roman Mironov ,

Charlene is all about giving practical tips

I don't like to listen to shows that are too long and unfocused. I think Charlene strikes the right balance. She gets her guests to share their stories and tips so efficiently.

A new fave

I’m a Podcast junkie, I start a lot of sentences with: I was listening to a Podcast and...
This is a podcast that gets me thinking outside the box, takes me in a direction away from news, comedy, crime series...introspective and insightful. I always come away with a new idea to chew on. Charlene is a gracious host, charming and grounded. A nice change from the norm!
