    What Legacy Do You Want To Leave? - Solo Episode

    What Legacy Do You Want To Leave? - Solo Episode

    Navigating heartbreak can often feel insurmountable. But what if we used it as fuel to become our highest self? What if in each heartbreak we asked ourselves "how do I learn from the lesson that broke my heart?" Learning how to open our hearts in a space that feels safe after heartbreak is one of the biggest lessons we can learn. If we continue to ask ourselves "how can I be better?" Then when we begin to implement those changes, we begin to curate a life aligned in integrity and our highest values.

    Sheleana Aiyana - Relationships Are Meant To Be Hard

    Sheleana Aiyana - Relationships Are Meant To Be Hard

    This week, one of my favourite people and dear friends Sheleana Aiyana joins us for a super juicy conversation on all things relationships. Shay is the founder and visionary of Rising Woman. Through a traumatic childhood, addiction and abuse, Shay found her way to the inner-work and Rising Woman was born. Rising Woman is a reflection of her mission to support others in embracing their shadows and finding their light within.

    This week we chat about how relationships are never really the fairytale that Hollywood has portrayed them to be... Shay explains that healthy conscious relationships require work, healing of our inner child and that we must enter into them knowing that we are complete on our own. We talk about what a healthy relationship truly looks like, and how we can rise up from the rock bottom of heartbreak and ask, "how did I get here and what has it taught me?"

    Find Shay and her community on Instagram @risingwoman or online at www.risingwoman.com.

    Jules Webber - How To Stop Over-Functioning

    My dear friend Jules Webber is back this week for a deep dive into the concepts of codependence, over-functioning and under-functioning. Jules walks us through what it means to be an over-functioner, and gives concrete examples from her own journey through life to help us understand this complex topic. Jules arms us with the tools to heal and move forward more balanced. Jules teaches us to embrace rather than ignore our triggers, and learn how we can better parent those reactions and condition ourselves to respond in a healthier way.

    Jules Webber is an Intimacy and Life Coach who helps women go within, nurture an intimate and loving relationship with themselves, and experience true Wholeness and belonging. Find her on instagram @jules.webber or on her website at www.juleswebber.com.

Life changing

Absolutely love all of Marks podcasts. His learnings, his guests - so many gems of wonder, insights and wow moments. He is my go to relationship guru and his realness, straight talking manner and humour soothes the soul and makes life lighter. Just the intro music makes me smile and relax ready to take in new information and perspectives in order for me to better myself, give more to others and live a fuller life. His voice, his enthusiasm and his clarity penetrates your self doubt and cloudyness. He encourages you to live from the heart and love fiercely whilst staying true to you. Mark is a gift, thank you for sharing your work!
