For me, this podcast is a journey of self-discovery and inclusion. My mission is to inspire you to become an agent of change in your own life, so that together we can create a world that includes and celebrates each of us for who we are, for who we were born to be, so we can remember what we learned to forget: what it's like "being all of us".

    13. Trusting Yourself to be Openhearted with Almendra Staffa-Healey

    13. Trusting Yourself to be Openhearted with Almendra Staffa-Healey

    No matter how far you go in life, you’ll never be able to get away from one person: you! Instead, moving through life and through the world is one of the ways we find ourselves, as many of the guests on Being All of Us’s first season have done. And part of the journey is finding how we can belong in the world and leave it better than we found it.

    This week’s guest is Almendra Staffa-Healey, who was born into movement and bravery. The child of an artist, she talks about growing up in Spain and in the United States. That in-between feeling led her to find belonging and understand loneliness and how she (and we) need to open our heart to connect with one another. She also shares the power of anger and the natural presence of sexual energy, and how important it is for us to embrace differences in ourselves and the world. And as different as you may be, I believe you will find a part of yourself to embrace in our conversation.

    The journey to being all of us begins with you. Come join us!

    We Talk About:
    2:00 minute mark – A child of bravery and movement
    6:30 – Third culture kids…
    10:30 – And finding belonging
    15:00 – Growing through loneliness and sharing a collective story
    21:45 – Addressing Privilege
    30:00 – Using guilt for good
    34:30 – Embracing emotions
    41:30 – Where do we want to grow – full recognition and embracing differences
    50:00 – How and when sexual energy manifests
    55:30 – Seeking out the divine in us all

    Challenge of the Week:
    Look for the divine spark in everyone you see and meet, try to see that part of you that connects you to everyone else.

    12. Seeing the Goodness in Yourself with Thibaut Ottomer

    12. Seeing the Goodness in Yourself with Thibaut Ottomer

    Happiness is something that just comes to us when it comes, right? Or maybe we find it and then try to keep it. Or perhaps it is a destination, an end to our journey?

    My guest this week is Thibaut Ottomer, a happiness coach. We talk about happiness, vulnerability and a lot more. He sees happiness as something we can seek out and work towards, and also something that requires working on even when we find it. And a lot of finding happiness is finding the power inside of us and tapping into what makes us who we are. I hope our conversation inspires you to tap into more of what makes you unique and empowers you to increase your own happiness.

    The journey to being all of us begins with you. Come join us!

    We Talk About:
    2:00 minute mark – Thibaut’s inner journey to find himself and happiness
    7:15 – The pandemic pause and opportunity
    9:15 – A “normal life” and being oneself
    15:15 – The power of patience and living in the flow
    19:15 – Techniques to cultivate inner peace and the importance of getting help
    25:45 – Putting vulnerability into practice and the power that comes from that practice
    32:15 – Tapping into our unique potential and shedding ‘normality’
    35:15 – Sources of inspiration and inspiring others
    40:00 – Accepting and overcoming challenges
    46:15 – The list of happiness

    Challenge of the Week:
    Make a list of 25 things that make you happy, and when you need some inspiration, go to your list and do something on it.

    11. Working to Become a Better Human with Shiva Roofeh

    11. Working to Become a Better Human with Shiva Roofeh

    One thing that has become blatantly clear in the 2020s is the way we are all connected to one another. Equally so is the importance of self care and self reflection; we need to understand and take care of ourselves so we can understand and take care of each other.

    Shiva Roofeh joins us this week on Being All Of Us to share her story. She talks about the many moves she made as a child and then an adult, and the challenges she faced in feeling at home and understanding her full identity. We discuss how who we are goes beyond the usual categories, the blessing and curse of greater self awareness, and how to better serve others, or to put it in Shiva's words, "how to be less of an a**hole." She is both spicy and sweet, and brings out the best in others. I think she'll bring out the best in you too!

    The journey to being all of us begins with you. Come join us!

    We Talk About:
    1:30 minute mark – Finding and then losing a welcome in the U.S.
    6:45 – Feeling at home and answering the where are you from question
    11:00 – The challenges and joys and hangovers of a life abroad
    19:30 – Straddling being Muslim and Jewish
    25:30 – Expressing a multifaceted identity
    29:30 – Less heralded forms of identity
    36:00 – Living in and out of whiteness and privilege
    44:00 – How to address inequalities, and calling things out vs. people in
    50:00 – Recognizing how we affect one another, and our part in effecting a better world
    54:30 – Personal and societal change

    Challenge of the Week:
    Ask yourself what’s the biggest thing keeping you from becoming a better person and think of one way, it can be small or big, you can use your power to improve the world’s unjust systems.
