    27. Rekindling The Fires Of Enchantment

    27. Rekindling The Fires Of Enchantment

    Let’s talk about re-enchantment. Our world has become so disenchanted. The capitalist systems we live within literally rely on our disenchantment. I’m interested in reclaiming enchantment, and in this episode I explore a few different paths forward for how we can begin to engage in the world from a more enchanted perspective.

    --

    IN THIS EPISODE, I TALK ABOUT:

    - Why we’re all feeling so disenchanted;

    - Why re-connecting to ourselves and our desires is the first step toward living a more enchanted life;

    - How animacy, embodiment, seasonal living, connection to nature, and storytelling are all important components of reclaiming enchantment; and

    - My own journey from fetal position on the floor to thriving.

    26. Instagram Breaks & Embracing Your True Self

    In this episode, I’m sharing about my month off social media - and everything I’m exploring about how to use social media in a more cyclical way. I’m also getting really honest about some of my own life updates, including a move we’re making, and the ways in which I’m embracing my true self. And I’m answering a listener question about how to embrace slow living when the people we’re in relationships with are still on the capitalist hamster wheel.

    IN THIS EPISODE, I TALK ABOUT:

    - What I learned from my month off Instagram and how I’ll be approaching social media differently;

    - The ways I’m embracing my true self and how you can do the same;

    - How to embrace slow living when the people we’re in relationships with struggle to understand; and

    - Some other fun and exciting life updates.

    25. Understanding Authenticity

    25. Understanding Authenticity

    Episode 25. I can’t believe we’ve made it this far! I know it’s a small victory for a podcast, but I’m still celebrating. And today, we’re exploring authenticity - what does that word even mean? We throw it around all the time, but do we know what we mean when we say it? Let’s dive into getting a clear understanding of what it actually means to be our authentic selves.

    --
    IN THIS EPISODE, I TALK ABOUT:

    - Defining authenticity as the balance between your big picture values and your moment-to-moment wants and needs;
    - How you can tell when you are acting in authenticity vs. out of authenticity;
    - My own struggles with authenticity and examples of how this is showing up in my life now; and
    - How to stop people pleasing and abandoning yourself.

    23. An Invitation to Tend to Yourself this Summer

    IN THIS WEEK'S EPISODE:

    I’m inviting you to consider how you might want to approach this summer differently. While summer can be a time of abundance and beauty, it can also feel overwhelming when we approach it from the perspective of needing to “do everything”. I share a bit about my experience of approaching this time of year differently and invite you to ask yourself: how can you tend to yourself this summer?

    --

    IN THIS EPISODE, I TALK ABOUT:

    - The pressure we can feel in our society to fill our summers with activities;

    - Some summer solstice lore and how to use the solstice to step into the waning half of the year;

    - Ideas for how you might give yourself permission to do less this summer; and

    - My plans for the podcast in the coming months (which I’d love your thoughts on!)

    I’m sharing some stories and learnings from my own life over the past couple of months about how to face the fear, and do it anyway. I explore how fear can actually be an indicator that we’re on the right track (not the wrong one) and how to lean into fear.

    --

    IN THIS EPISODE, I TALK ABOUT:

    - My own history of confusing fear with anxiety;

    - How fear is showing up in my life right now, and what I’m doing about it;

    - Ways I’m purposely leaning into fear and seeing it as a sign I’m on the right track; and

    - The correlation between fear and expansion.

So authentic and helpful!

So far I'm really loving this podcast. Kelsey is real and relatable. Her authenticity shines through but she also provides really tangible, helpful information related to mental health. I've been following her on Instagram for a while and this podcast is an exciting expansion of her work there.
