The Cam Kashani Show is redefining beauty, body and Self. The purpose and vision of this show is to help everyone feel beautiful, powerful, and enough. To heal the definition of beauty, body and Self that you currently have, to allow you to feel more empowered and self-aware, and as result, love yourself at an unwavering, unconditional, and unapologetic level. In this podcast, I break down societal conditioning and programming (i.e. lies) to help you build up the truth about yourSelf. If you want to learn how to love yourself more, while creating an empowered mindset that will help you thrive in all aspects of life, this is the show for you. I speak with vulnerability, authenticity and truth, to help inspire you, so you can elevate and become the best version of yourSelf.
How Healing Trauma can also Heal Physical Pain
In this episode, I speak with another beautiful, grounded soul I met in Peru: Lauren Mazukiewicz --> @queendalini on IG.
Lauren is deeply embedded in the world of plant medicine, trauma healing, and holistic care, and joins me to share a bit of her personal journey and to discuss the Divine Feminine and overcoming what holds you back from reaching your full potential.
We focus on what it’s like to become co-dependent and allow the happiness of others to dictate your own happiness, and what it takes to break out of these cycles. What happens when you start to show up for yourself? What does it take to fine-tune your self-mothering to honor your past and your triggers while gaining the understanding to work through them?
Like myself, Lauren has turned to powerful tools to heal trauma like plant medicine, yoga and meditation, movement, sound, and Feminine health. The link between your trauma and your physical health is undeniable, and when we hold in our trauma and allow our triggers to overwhelm us, it can create serious and sometimes chronic health problems.
Through self-curiosity and self-love, we can all learn to harness our most powerful attributes, embrace our most sensitive selves, and live without the challenge of constantly reacting to or managing our triggers.
Join me and Lauren for an intimate conversation about this and much more, and discover some of the ways we’ve chosen to put energy into our personal wellness journeys.

Why Healing Trauma Is Essential to Becoming Your Best Self
Welcome to Season 3 of the Cam Kashani Show! Season 3 is going to be focused on women and our power and discovering the paths we take and the tools we use to become truly ourSelves.
In this episode, I am thrilled to be joined by the powerhouse team of Rachelle and Saskia from Not Your Average Psychic. They are Psychologists and Psychics -- not your average combo. ;) And having personally worked with them, I can absolutely vouch for them.
So, how did these powerful women come into their gifts and discovered their purpose in life? And how did they move past the judgments of society to really be in their power and own their gifts?
Both psychologists, Rachelle and Saskia met nearly a decade ago when Rachelle sought out Saskia to help her handle the intense fear she regularly experienced. A person with psychic inclination since she was a small child, Rachelle struggled with the messages she received and tried to push her spiritual connection away, resulting in major emotional discomfort.
With the help of Saskia, Rachelle began accepting her psychic gifts and even helped Saskia to begin to explore her own connection with the Universe. Together, they began a journey of self-acceptance and began honing their ability to channel energy. A few short years later, the chance to begin offering their services to other people appeared, and they began working to help others seeking answers to their life questions.
For both Rachelle and Saskia, the key to their success was leaning into and embracing their full selves. You can’t stop being a psychic, no matter how hard or long you try.
We are all born to overcome our hurdles. Trauma, pain, fear, are all catalysts for growth and self-discovery.
In this in-depth interview with Rachelle and Saskia, we delve deep into what it takes to build a connection with your own Soul, and how healing from trauma can help turn us into our most authentic selves, and how to eliminate distractions that keep you apart from your Self.

From Tech & Startups to Healing & the Divine Masculine
Ravi and I met eons ago when we were both immersed in the world of tech and startup companies. Now, both Ravi and I have discovered different (but converging) paths. Ravi’s path has brought him to Thailand, where he has studied his spirituality and the Divine Masculine. My path has also led me to explore my spirituality, with a strong focus on the Divine Feminine and the power of the Self.
So, where did Ravi’s journey begin? It started with rock bottom. Or what felt like rock bottom. In February 2019, Ravi lost a job at a tech startup that had become a key part of his identity. Not only did Ravi lose his job, but he also lost the community he had worked so hard to become part of. Just weeks after losing his job, the COVID-19 pandemic began in earnest, sending the rest of the world into turmoil.
Everything led up to the question: What does Ravi want? What exists at the core of Ravi’s Being?
As Ravi puts it: it was a process of following breadcrumbs that led him to alignment. It has been about constant restructuring and realigning in pursuit of a more authentic version of Self. The breadcrumbs led Ravi to India, to yoga teacher training, and the Osho Ashram where he began to shed his layers of grief, sadness, and anger. After a year in India, the breadcrumbs led Ravi to Thailand, where he resides today.
Through bodywork, breathwork, and connecting with the right spiritual teachers and guides at the right time, Ravi finally pulled back the curtain to reveal his Divine Self, free from the labels he had lived with his whole life. Rather than putting economic, social, or educational success first, Ravi was putting himSelf first, and accessing the thing that had been missing all along.
In his exploration of Divine Energies, Ravi has discovered the need for balance. Balance brings about abundance, and imbalance brings about dissatisfaction. Everyone has both Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine energies within them, but when one is suppressed or ignored, the other becomes overbearing and throws the Self out of balance. When the Self is balanced, then and only then can you achieve your highest vibration.
For Ravi, Divine Masculinity feels like strength, presence, and safety. In the safety of the Divine Masculine, the Divine Feminine - in all its creativity, emotion, and ferocity - can thrive and flourish.
In the final episode of Season 2 of The Cam Kashani Show, Ravi and I discuss delving inside and healing ourselves. Introspection can cause tremendous growth, and in a world where chaos and imbalance are the norm, taking a moment to check in with your Self and your thoughts is more important than ever before.
See you all in a few weeks with Season 3.
All my love,

From Emptiness and Wall Street to Fulfillment and Plant Medicine
You all have heard about my epic Sacred Voyage to Peru back in October, when I went on a plant medicine retreat that quite literally changed my life. I came back feeling calm, clear, and fully connected to my heart. (listen to the full episode a few posts back)
This retreat was organized by a few people, but namely Anthony Hidalgo, whom I had the pleasure of interviewing for my podcast.
He shares his story fully and openly, about how he went from being run by his ego, living in the world of Wall Street and outsourcing his happiness to the amount of money in his bank account, to his first encounter with plant medicine and how that broke him wide open, reconnect to his heart, and completely changed his life.
The shift in his life not only impacted him, but so many others. He now leads these powerful retreats in South America and helps others tap into their hearts and follow their sacred calling as well.
Thank you, Anthony, for the work you do. I am forever grateful.
Listen to this powerful episode.
All my love,

Healing is a Lifelong Journey
Healing is a lifelong journey.
I’ve been doing “the work”, as in “the inner work”, for more than 8 years, and it has been a rollercoaster. It’s been difficult, painful, terrifying, and exhausting, and I’ve wanted to pull my hair out and give up entirely more than once. The journey has also been incredibly gratifying, and given me immense gratitude, and increased my self-love. My healing journey has brought out every emotion you can imagine, but I continue on because I know that it is a commitment, and moreover, I know that it’s worth it.
When you start a healing journey, you think to yourself that in the end you will feel better and be all done. Well, you’ll certainly start to feel better, but there is no being “done.” Healing is a lifelong commitment, a lifelong journey, a layered and non-linear process. Sure, you may be able to move beyond some things, you may even be able to feel completely healed from them, but other things require lifelong work and attention.
Healing is not a destination, it is a journey. It’s not “WHEN I heal I WILL BE empowered,” it’s “AS I heal I BECOME empowered.”
There is nothing else I would rather be doing than healing, and with every layer that is removed, I am closer to my true self and the journey becomes a little easier. Those layers reveal new things about yourself, and new truths that may require more work, but with the work comes a deeper and more trusting bond between you and the Self.
Now, I’ve turned my passion into coaching, helping others (and particularly women) connect with their divine feminine and truest Self. Even when the healing journey looks like an insurmountable mountain, it is so worth doing. Just take one step at a time. Along the way, you’ll gain so much more than healing and peace. You’ll have moments of immense joy, moments of clarity, moments of surprise when you reveal something about yourself you’ve never known before.
In this episode, I talk a little bit about some of the clarity, painful memories, and surprises I have been faced with upon my own healing journey and share the wisdom I’ve gathered along the way.
Don’t you deserve to live a free, embodied, empowered, happy life? What can you do for yourself today to begin to heal? Let’s get started together…
Sending you all love,

From Harvard To Spirituality & Plant Medicine (Interview)
*TW: Mention of suicide
I have been so honored to share details of my journey through life on this podcast. Now, I feel inspired to begin sharing other peoples’ transformative journeys to hopefully inspire you upon your path.
The first story I want to share is Kaizen’s.
I met Kaizen on my recent plant medicine retreat in Peru, which you can hear all about on my last podcast episode.
Kaizen is a Mindset Coach from New York, where he was born to Ghanaian immigrants. His parents were extremely invested in his success and as their oldest son, Kaizen himself began to feel the pressure to strive for perfection. Though raised around religion, spirituality, mental wellness, and holistic wellbeing weren’t a focus - life was about taking logical steps to success.
After years of excellent grades and setting high standards, Kaizen was accepted into Harvard, where he attended college. Despite being a high achiever with all the qualifications to study amongst his peers, Kaizen began to feel like he was floundering. In his mind, he had achieved his goal and reached Harvard, so he should be happy. In his heart, he felt anxiety, depression, and discomfort surrounded by so many over-stress, type-A, high-expectation people.
Eventually, the stress became more unbearable and turned into darker thoughts of self-harm and suicide. Kaizen knew he needed to take time off.
After Harvard, exercise and fitness became Kaizen’s outlet for keeping his anxiety and depression under control. He took on an exciting job planning e-sporting events, and for all intents and purposes, was successful. However, Kaizen spent most of his 20s simply getting by, that stress and anxiety kept at bay but never truly going away.
In 2020, at age 30 and faced with a looming global pandemic, Kaizen quit his job to become a pro gamer. Instead, Kaizen found himself on a journey of Self-discovery, fueled by spirituality and plant medicine.
In this interview with Kaizen Asiedu - who you can follow on Instagram @ThatsKaizen - we go in-depth on how transformational work, plant medicine and psychedelics have changed Kaizen’s life, and what truly knowing your Self can do for your life’s purpose.
She knows what’s she’s talking about!
From experience, training, being mentored, Cam has gained meaningful insights and knowledge in trauma, wellness, self-love, communication, relationships and more. Whether you’re curious about or fully called to listen, you will get gold nuggets out of her podcast.
Real and powerful. She breaks down higher spiritual concepts into practical, down to earth terms. Speaks from the heart and experience.
This podcast is very timely, as I believe almost everyone has some negative beliefs about their body. Can gets real, and helps everyone (women AND men) to question and ultimately reject those beliefs, because they are doing no good at all. Thank you, Cam!
