    S17E9: It's Bigger Than Me: Changing the Conversation About Weight and Obesity with Yvette Nicole Brown

    Hey lady! You’re in for a treat with this week’s episode. Yvette Nicole Brown stops by the Cultivating H.E.R. Space podcast to have some fun girl talk with Dr. Dom and Terri. Yvette brings her warm personality and positive energy to discuss an initiative that is dear to her heart – It’s Bigger Than Me. The movement helps shine a light on obesity and addresses some myths about obesity, primarily that it is a disease and nothing to be ashamed of even though feelings of shame are normal and understandable. Yvette offers her unique perspective on being in the spotlight through her decades-long career in the entertainment industry. If you struggle with your weight or love someone who does then tune in so you can add ways to be kinder to yourself into your toolkit. It’s all about perspective and hopefully, this conversation brightens yours.

    “The truth is, navigating obesity and our health can come with moments of success and setbacks. So, we must be prepared to push through those moments when our internal voice tells us to give up.”

    S17E8: Girl Code: Unofficial Rules that Black Women Should Live By

    S17E8: Girl Code: Unofficial Rules that Black Women Should Live By

    Hey lady, no matter where you are in life or what age you’re currently enjoying, we all know there aren’t any rules to life, but there are social graces that help us journey together. Especially, if you’re a woman or femme. Girl code can seem superficial but is real and actually a useful way to be in relationship with other women. Whether they are your friends or just other women out here living in the world, there are things that we as women do and just don’t do. While some things change, some things stay the same, and being a genuine person is always going to be in style.

    This episode is interactive! Check us out on Instagram and let us know what your girl code absolutes are and what are some of your girl code dealbreakers.

    S17E7: If That Happened to Me I would Have...: How to Respond When Things Catch You Off Guard

    Hey lady, ever have an interaction with someone that just felt…off? Or, have you responded in a way that wasn’t your finest moment? Don’t beat yourself up. Being a human is interesting and complex. There isn’t a rulebook, but there are frameworks that we can work with to help us navigate challenging situations with grace. This week Terri and Dr. Dom have a special surprise (check out Patreon for the deets) and talk about the moments in life when we weren’t operating as our highest selves. Those opportunities are rich with information that can help us make decisions from an empowered place for situations in the future. Dr. Dom and Terri discuss various real-world scenarios to illustrate the point that as we grow we develop new tools to help ourselves along the way. Life is, indeed, the greatest teacher! You’ll want to tune in to the Aftershow for a powerful toolkit that you can access while living in the moment. Tap in!
