    #011: Til' Death Do Us Part: with John Trapp

    #011: Til' Death Do Us Part: with John Trapp

    Well, this one hit me deep in the feels!!

    I knew that the laughs would be there, as they always are when John and I dish about life together, but the tears were a bit of a sneak attack! I am so glad that that I had the opportunity to speak openly with John about the current death I am experiencing, and have such a loving and safe reception...filled with so much wisdom that I know will also benefit all who listen to this podcast.



    Something I think about a lot is the very tight and heavy vow that we all take when getting married of, "Til Death Do Us Part." On one hand, it provides a sense of safety and security in each other and the relationship that is being galvanized, but on the other hand, it can indicate a lack of freedom for the natural, AND NECESSARY growth and evolution that is a part of our human (and spiritual) journey. In this podcast, John and I dive deep into this very vow that we both took when we married nearly 22 years ago, and how we've navigated a series of personal and relationship "deaths" along the way and how we've surfed the waves to end up where we are today.



    ~ My deepest apologies about the mic cutting out towards the end. Audio quality is very important to me, but the authentic breakdown I was having was more important to share with you! For this reason, we didn't re-record this section so that you can be a part of what felt like such a deep and intimate moment 3

    #010: Why Are They Really Attacking Ukraine? with Tania Andrushko

    #010: Why Are They Really Attacking Ukraine? with Tania Andrushko

    Do you believe in coincidence (random occurrences), OR do you see all events as connected to a grander purpose?



    Truth is, even if you may not yet understand the higher meaning of what has happened, or is currently happening, if we follow our own ancestral threads backwards, we would eventually end up energetically sitting at the feet of our ancestors and re-learning how interconnected all people, places, and events really are. Every culture is rooted in their own indigenous teachings, and this primordial wisdom originates from the relationship that our ancestors held with the sun, the moon, and the earth as their very survival depended upon listening to their rhythms and cues.



    It doesn't take much to realize that as a human race, we've strayed from our roots and the ripple effect of that has been disastrous on a personal and collective level. However, there are many individuals on this planet who have been feeling the pull back to truth and have been doing the deep work to re-member.

    And then, there are those who are trying to stop this.

    But what for? And, what does any of this have to do with the Ukraine?



    In this podcast, I speak with Emotional Intelligence + Mindset Coach, AND Ukrainian immigrant, Tania Andrushko to learn more about her personal experience growing up rooted deeply into the juxtaposition of being raised by grandparents who were still steeped in the forbidden spiritual practices of the ancients, and her father: a Christian Priest.



    Tania has recently published a Tarot deck (Flower of the Magic Fern), where she weaves much of traditional Ukrainian spirituality with inspiring lessons, and heart-opening imagery. To learn more or to purchase your deck, please visit: https://www.taniaandrushko.com/flowerofthemagicfern

    #009: "Are The Mental Health Stats Right?" Solo episode with Mandy

    #009: "Are The Mental Health Stats Right?" Solo episode with Mandy

    Let me begin by saying that I am a fierce advocate for education and resources to support mental health, especially in children. However, with a new (Canadian) statistic stating that 1 in 2 children are struggling with their mental health, I have to lend a new perspective as to one of the reasons why I feel that this is happening and how, if we don't wake up, the consequences of falling into the unconscious spiral of today's medical model to treat mental illness could be catastrophic. 



    If you are seeking more resources that support your own or your child's mental health, please check these ones out:

    #008: Opening the Door to Plant Medicine with Sarah Salter-Kelly

    #008: Opening the Door to Plant Medicine with Sarah Salter-Kelly

    When her mother was murdered, Sarah Salter-Kelly leaned heavily into the foundations of deep spiritual work that she had been steeped in during her whole upbringing. A blend of Shamanism, deep meditation, popular self-help gurus, and psychedelics, all supported Sarah in walking the hardest (and most necessary path) of facing down the dragon that was her mothers perpetrator and finding forgiveness scattered in the shards of her broken heart. Though she was only 20 years old at the time, the trauma of her mothers loss, thrust her onto a spiritual path like no other, and one that she has walked as a humble student, eventually earning the honour of elder. 

    Today, Sarah shares her medicine from a place of power, love, and divine grace as she supports many, many others through their shadows by inviting the light that is held through ceremony and the spirits of plant medicine. 

    This conversation is an eye-opening dialogue into the trending popularity of psychedelics and how important intention, support, and integration is when stepping onto the path of healing.

    #007: Fallen Leaders with Geha Gonthier

    #007: Fallen Leaders with Geha Gonthier

    Some may call it a cult, while others a place of personal freedom and divine cooperation, but who is responsible when things fall apart...particularly at the hands of those in charge?

    During this provocative conversation with Geha Gonthier, we discuss her time spent inside the infamous Rajneeshpuram in Oregon with spiritual Guru, Osho, as well as her decision to move to Edmonton, Canada after meeting another community leader by the name of John de Ruiter. Both leaders have fallen under legal charges pressed against them by fellow community members as well as through (in Osho's case), state accusations for some almost unthinkable crimes.  

    It would seem that these leaders are among a growing number of power-hungry abusers, working in the shadows, who's actions are now being thrust into the light, and blinding them as they stumble and fall from their pedestals.  And for many who walk a spiritual path, it is absolutely devastating, causing a whiplash effect while they turn their backs on the teachings and the communities that supported them through their growth, development, and healing, leaving them saddened, lost, and even angry.

    Where do we go from here? Geha helps us to answer this question for ourselves as we digest our own disappointment in those who we considered our loving leaders, from our parents, to our teachers, and to those who we've admired who's lives took a sharp and shocking turn.
