    Eating Disorders & Connecting with Your Body with Diana Bermudez

    Eating Disorders & Connecting with Your Body with Diana Bermudez

    In this episode, we're speaking to actress Diana Bermudez about body image and eating disorders.

    Around 1.25 million people in the UK suffer with an eating disorder; it's not an issue that seems to be going anywhere.

    This is obviously a very sensitive subject matter, and not one Diana or I took lightly as both of us are eating disorder survivors.

    Here, we discuss what it's like to suffer with an eating disorder and how to re-connect with your body after. For Diana, she has the added pressure of working as an actress in an industry where looks are everything. Her most recent appearance was as the spectacular Yatzil in the Marvel series 'Moonlight'.

    Diana is Colombian, and we delve into how body shape (specifically for women) is a prominent factor in self worth in Colombian and Latino culture. 

    This is the first time Diana has spoken about her body image and eating disorder experience, so I'm truly honoured to have been able to facilitate it.

    Friendship, The News & Connection

    Friendship, The News & Connection

    In this episode of The Dandelion Podcast, we speak to the wonderful Selina Swift.

    Selina and I have been friends for 10 years (!) so we spend some time reflecting on friendship and connection (and how we stayed friends for so many years??!)

    As Selina works for Sky News as a Producer, we also discuss whether the news and journalism help society to connect or are polarising us more.

    Selina's working on a really fascinating project, which brings together her love for journalism, communication and connection. It hasn't yet launched, but it's called News Act and it's a way of allowing people to take action around topical issues.

    This was the first ever episode that I recorded for The Dandelion Podcast, which has made me all nostalgic for the journey!

    Connecting with your authentic self with John Siddique

    In this podcast episode, Sally interviews the author and spiritual teacher John Siddique.

    We discuss John's book 'Signposts of the Spiritual Journey' and how to connect with your authentic self and spirituality.

    We cover:

    What does connecting with your authentic self mean to you?

    What does it mean to ‘live authentically’?

    An insight into the thought process behind the book and who the book's for.

    How do you know if you’re going through a spiritual awakening?

    An explanation of what false consciousness is.

    What does it mean to ‘be teachable’ in terms of spirituality?

    Dealing with other people and living authentically has its challenges - particularly when you're energy sensitive. What advice would you give someone else who feels this way?

    Do you think we’re going through a collective awakening?

    What advice would you give to someone who’s currently going through a spiritual awakening or transformation? 

    And also... What is the meaning of life?

    (Yes he did actually answer this!)

    If you're living in a city, chances are you live with housemates or at least have done at some point in your life.
    Let's be honest, the experience can range from amazing to absolutely terrible. If you're currently experiencing the latter, we feel you. And hopefully listening to this will give you a glimmer of hope of a better future living situation.

    This interview covers:
    - Who we lived with before, what it was like and what we learnt
    - What our experience was and why it felt so different
    - Going through tough times as housemates
    - Favourite memories of living together
    - Challenges of living together
    - Advice on finding good housemates

    And... some weird 'characters' we created to keep ourselves amused.
