    EP017 The Soul of Improv, Power of Saying Yes & Compassionate Presence w/Michael Davis & Ed Trout

    EP017 The Soul of Improv, Power of Saying Yes & Compassionate Presence w/Michael Davis & Ed Trout

    I love the opportunity and the possibility of today’s interview. I also wholeheartedly love the humans with whom I am sharing space in this episode. It is a privilege and a joy to introduce you to two of my dearest friends and members of my spiritual family: Rev. Michael Everett Davis and Ed Trout. They are both incredibly multifaceted and brilliantly artistic individuals who partner with each other both in life and in creative endeavors. In our conversation, we get to the heart of surrender and trust; the spiritual toolkit of improv; the power of saying ‘yes, and..’; accepting what is; receiving and acknowledging the gift and the love that is here for us right now; compassionate presence and communication; transforming creative insecurity, and the necessity of failure.

    Michael is a singer, actor, Interfaith Minister, improvisor and mystic. Ed is a founding member, co-owner, and Artistic Director of CSz Indianapolis, the home of ComedySportz. Ed is an experienced improvisational theatre actor, director and teacher. Beyond their formal professional roles, they also live their lives as a heartfelt spiritual practice and endeavor to be a presence of Love in the world, no matter what.

    EP016 Wild Soul Wisdom for our Body and Being with Alyssa Pfennig

    Today I have something really special to share with you… My guest, Alyssa Pfennig, is a yoga therapist, wild wisdom encourager, and soulful retreat facilitator. We dive into the depths of the body, mind and wild soul as we discuss her journey, the healing power of horses, becoming heart-centered, the brilliance and languages of the body, understanding dysregulation and imbalance, taking time to listen, the necessity of release, and the potency of (re)connecting to our root wisdom.

    Alyssa is the founder and owner of Embarque Yoga Studio and Wellness Spa in Indianapolis. She is passionate about sharing the therapeutic wisdom of yoga and is an advocate for self-care -- sharing yoga, meditation and self-care rituals as therapies to empower women to be healthy, stay sane and feel good again. When she is not speaking, teaching or leading retreats, you can find her with her feet in the grass, hiking with her beloved dog, Ellie, or spending time with horses at a ranch.

    EP015 Honoring Our Seasons, Trusting Love & Creating Space Through Forgiveness w/ Karma Aja Daigle

    I am so happy to share today’s interview! I invited back my dear friend, Karma Aja Daigle, who you may remember from a previous episode of the podcast. Karma is an oracle, energy healer and spiritual teacher living suburban bliss in Fairfield County Connecticut with her favorite spiritual guides - three charismatic kids, two charming chihuahuas and a kindhearted husband.

    Karma is an incredibly gifted healer and teacher who can expand the awareness and expression - really, the consciousness - of just about any topic from physical health to leadership. In today’s interview, we discuss honoring our seasons, learning from the wisdom and heart of the earth, creating space through forgiveness and letting go, the embodiment of healing, trusting the loving presence of life, and how healing ourselves heals everyone else too.

    If you want to learn more about Karma and perhaps even learn what an oracle is exactly, definitely check out Episode 007: How to Be in Loving Relationship with Your Business (or Anyone/thing) and Embodying the Love Your Body Deserves…

    EP014 Cultivating Loving Partnership with Our Bodies with Karen Kirchman

    EP014 Cultivating Loving Partnership with Our Bodies with Karen Kirchman

    I am flying solo in today’s episode… I wanted to hold some space and offer some guidance for connecting with and deepening our relationship with the body as well as understanding the languages of the body. It is actually a powerful guidance system and wisdom-holder. It is meant to be a partner and resource and threshold for experience in our lives, but very rarely is that the common reality. So take a deep breath and tune in…

    EP013 Being of the Earth, Healing Disconnection, & Honoring our Shadows & Cycles with Alyson Morgan

    I am lit up from the inside-out with deepest joy and heartfelt appreciation to share today’s interview. My guest today is one of my favorite mutual admiration society members: Alyson Morgan. Her expression in the world is nothing short of soulful magic, and I get to invite you into that space as we discuss all things sustainability; coming to understand our depth of relationship with the earth and our food; how small decisions lead to greater awareness; the ways that our conscious choices reconnect us to our roots; healing the hole of disconnection; the potency of the moon to invite us back into ourselves; the capacity of herbs and plant allies; and the necessity of honoring our shadows and cycles.

    Yeah… it’s all the things.

    Alyson is a (self-proclaimed) work in progress. An ecofeminist, mother, wild woman, herbalist in training, yogi, moon lover, homesteader, finding healing through connecting to the earth, it’s cycles + creating sacred spaces. She’s interested in spiritual alchemy, transforming deep pain into healing, for the self and the collective. She created the ecocollective + blog Maia Terra as a safe space for connection + honest dialogue around climate change. She believes as stewards of the earth, we can build resilience + adapt to climate change through intentional living. When we connect to our inner knowing, to the plants and our ancestors we can access ways to live more sustainably.
