a media, wellness & artistry hub
that is; in celebration of the Earth,
inspired to live in a mindful, health-filled way,
humbled by the depths of inner exploration
and the power of practicing daily rituals,
in love with the beauty of cultures worldwide
and the adventurous nature of travel,
dedicated to a life of heart-centredness, purposeful pursuits,
and a whole lotta mojo.
A ramble about my life - anorexia, drugs, raw veganism, break-ups & my innate spirit through it all
Feels quite vulnerable and also super self-indulgent and strange to share this, but for a while i've felt called to give a little more insight into more of my story and aspects to my being/personality/interests that perhaps don't come across through The Mojo Mecca. Thank you for holding me in this space.
Whole-Being Skincare, Sacred Passageways, Midwifery & Compassion with Meagan of Moon & Rock
I am speaking in this episode to Meagan Rock - a gorgeous being, a mother, a midwife in training, and one-part of 'Moon & Rock' with her husband Evan. 'Moon & Rock' is a non-toxic, cruelty free and highly effective skincare range that serves to remind you of your True Beauty beyond what is reflected in the mirror.
We speak on:
- Becoming a mother and now studying to be a midwife
- The importance of initiation and ceremonial rituals and how to honour the sacred transitions of birth, motherhood, death, marriage, business ownership and the changes we go through as individuals
- Digital discernment and rewriting addictive tendencies to self-gratification and absorption
- Her skin journey and formulating the powerful concoctions shared through Moon & Rock
- The multi-faceted way we take in energy and nourishment: and how perhaps the media we consume affects us more than we think
- How to deepen in compassion, kindness and acceptance both for ourselves and for the world, in the midst of these wild times

Golden Grief & Purposeful Plant-led Business with Zoë LvH of 'Wunder Workshop' & 'Essentials'
I am here chatting to Zoë Lind Van't Hof, a radiant golden being and entrepreneurial spirit doing incredible work in the world.
She is a plant-lover through and through. She grew up plant-based, developed her own intuitive herbalism, foraged, grew organic food and was surrounded by botanicals through her massage therapist/naturopath mother. This passion led her to organically share her wisdom through purposeful products and offerings.
She is the founder of 'Wunder Workshop' - a brand which celebrates plants, soil health, grower to consumer transparency and products with purpose. It's origin came in discovering a small-scale, family owned turmeric farm in Sri Lanka and feeling called to share the medicinal properties of this powerful root, especially when grown in a sustainable way by people who care.
She carries this same essence and intention of care into her second initiative, 'Essentials by Zoë LVH'; which, born from her late mother's journey with breast cancer, offers a botanical-infused breast care oil that reminds us to lovingly massage and get to know our breasts more intimately. In Essentials, she also offers a Grief Balm; for softening the pain, open your heart and calming your anxiety.
We speak a lot about grief, the ongoing depths of her journey with loss, and how it has also allowed her to experience more joy and appreciation for her life.
We also touch on new ways of business, growth not being linear, the importance of deep passion and intention behind all that you do, how to create daily balance and nourishment of the many areas of one's life, and surrendering to receiving help.

Feeling Gratitude - a Meditation ft. birds, wind, trees, sky & sun.
A candid moment outside feeling inspired to guide you into a space of gratitude for your life and all that it encompasses. Gratitude is a simple fine-tuning of one's perception to bear witness to the multitude of blessings present in seemingly 'typical' daily occurrences, people or environments around you. It is a way to bring magic to the mundane. To lift up your spirit.

Reclaiming Tortured Souls to the Light & Radiating Hope with Chrissie of MANA Movement/Project Angel
TRIGGER WARNING: This episode discusses human torture trafficking. If you feel this is not something you're in the space to hear, please honor that, and refrain from listening.
Today I conversed with Chrissie Fire Mane; a mother, shamanic psychotherapist, freedom pioneer, musician, poet and visionary. She is the founder of The MANA Movement, an initiative essentially centred around helping people return to their essence to become present, peaceful, revolutionary beings in the world. She holds this vision and stewards this project in 4 main areas - through an online intensive course called The Manifestrix, Mana Retreats in the Andes of Peru, a high-vibe Superfood blend, and through giving back - or what she calls 'Ayni' - which is a beautifully profound Quechua word and way of life that loosely translates to 'sacred reciprocity' - and how we need to remain in this harmonious exchange of giving as greatly as we receive.
As an extension of this Ayni - a new branch and initiative of Chrissie's work emerged. This being, Project Angel, which serves to rehabilitate victims of human torture trafficking, and to reclaim their souls into the light. As she says, 'we are only as fast as our slowest member' - meaning we must bring the deepest, darkest, most twisted alleyways of humankind back to the light.
She radiates hope and holds this frequency so strongly yet gently. She is such a mama energy. We also speak on understanding our unique role in this time of crisis, maintaining momentum and hope, and the metaphysical power of connecting with supportive groups in this time of isolation.
Listen, and receive.
