Lourdes Billingsley is an intuitive healer and guide who works with the somatic nervous system to get out of the racing mind and really feel through the body. Her practice and work can release trauma, fears, emotions we're holding onto, and more.
This week we host a beautiful conversation with the lovely Lourdes - and we happen to share a lot about ourselves too :) We're talking about emotions, fears, what it means to be an empath, how to navigate it, and also how to use this body work + much more.

Ep 43: The Social Dilemma, Comparison, Tech Mindset & Mental Health with Teodora Pavkovic
This week’s guest is psychotherapist Teodora Pavkovic. She specializes in mental health as it relates to our use of technology and explores the paradigms associated with comparison, mindset, and dopamine reward response - to name a few.
We invited her on for a discussion centered on these super timely themes - and to discuss each of our takes on the popular “Social Dilemma” documentary on Netflix right now - have you seen it?
Check out the episode for some of the fascinating research findings behind how tech impacts our health, relationships and more - for us as adults and the impact on children, babies and our younger generations. Plus, what we can do to have a healthy, productive relationship with tech and social media.
Ep 42: Overcoming Fear & The Tools For Making Your Best Decisions
Have you ever found yourself "bracing for impact" when the impact isn't even there? Bracing for the discomfort/pain/unknown in a way that prevents you from being in the moment?
We are sharing our personal stories and what we've learned - how we've caught ourselves "pacing ourselves" unnecessarily - and the tools and practices that have helped us to move out of fear and into a place that feels much lighter and aligned.
We love doing these solo episodes and sharing with you, this is one of our favorites we've done in a while!

Ep 40: Periods & Fertility: What's normal, what's not, and what to do with Dr Lara Briden
We are thrilled to share our conversation with renowned doctor and author of The Period Repair Manual, Dr. Lara Briden. A true thought leader and expert on women’s health, we are talking to Dr. Lara about it ALL. Perhaps the conversation can be best summed up in these words as we cover: when it comes to your cycle, your hormones, and your fertility - what’s normal and what’s not? So then, what can we do?
She opened our eyes to help us understand how and why some of what we might consider “normal” pain, mood fluctuation, birth control practices - are not normal at all and could be causing longer term harm. Not to worry - she shares how to understand what might be going on and how to bring our bodies into balance and ease.
