Every week Sarah Starrs interviews an inspiring women about the nitty gritty of how she lives with passion and purpose. We dive deep into our journeys, the obstacles we’ve overcome, what’s working for us, and what isn’t. We’re totally honest about what we’re learning, what our daily rituals look like, and what we’re struggling with. We don’t shy away from the hard stuff and we really go into it all: spirituality, personal development, magic, routines, career, friendship, relationships, sexuality, and so much more. This isn’t about preachy self-help or self-improvement. It’s about self-acceptance and talking about the things that matter to us. Formerly called Punk Rock Personal Development.

    TGGC #93: Accepting that change is hard and hiking the Pacific Crest Trail with Nicole Antoinette

    TGGC #93: Accepting that change is hard and hiking the Pacific Crest Trail with Nicole Antoinette

    Nicole Antoinette is the host of the Real Talk Radio podcast, where people come together to talk about the wonderful mess of being human. A recovering self-help addict and former goal-setting coach, Nicole’s mission is to help people get to the heart of what’s true without judgement, and to explore how we can use grit and grace to close the gap between what we say we want and what we actually do. I loved talking with her about her decision to hike more than 400 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail last year, how she successfully started a meditation practice after years of wanting to, the value of doing hard things, and what it really takes to create lasting change.

    TGGC #92: Going on an emotional tour with Bernadette Pleasant

    TGGC #92: Going on an emotional tour with Bernadette Pleasant

    Bernadette Pleasant is the creator of Femme, a fusion of sensual movement, dance, meditation, creative visualization and celebration of the feminine form.

    Femme! as designed, creates sacred, safe spaces for women to explore their femininity; to move in sensual ways, to explore and release emotions, to alter or release beliefs about themselves and to unapologetically love their bodies!

    Bernadette was such a fun person to talk with. We dove into why people live “half-assed emotional lives” (and how to stop), the power of drumming and how it helps us to reach other levels of our psyche, and the wisdom we can access through our bodies.

    TGGC #91: Separating your sense of self-worth from your work with Lulu Brud

    TGGC #91: Separating your sense of self-worth from your work with Lulu Brud

    Lady Lu of the Wolves, aka Lulu Brud Zsebe, is an actress on Pretty Little Liars and the wild woman behind the brand OF THE WOLVES. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and pup. In her free time she's probably playing with plants, re-designing homes or running around in the desert. I loved talking to Lulu about her connection to wolves, how she balances the competing demands of Hollywood acting and her more spiritual work, separating your sense of self-worth from your work, and making conscious decisions as a consumer.

    TGGC #90: Cultivating digital mindfulness and finding peace in the city with Clare Barry

    TGGC #90: Cultivating digital mindfulness and finding peace in the city with Clare Barry

    Clare Barry is a Londoner, writer and founder of Urban Curiosity - a creativity and wellness company that helps busy people slow down and see things differently. Clare writes about creativity and human connection in a digital world and London in the real one. She leads international retreats and Urban Curiosity Walkshops in her hometown; these two-hour sessions are are part digital detox, part creativity class - on foot.

    By changing her lifestyle after experiencing burn out, Clare fell back in love with London and found solace within the hustle and bustle of the big city. I loved talking to her about ideas for navigating a busy, overwhelming city in a slower, more mindful way, being mindful of when and how we use our smartphones, and periods of consuming information vs. periods of creation.

    TGGC #88: Why healing is valuable work with Shivani Seth

    TGGC #88: Why healing is valuable work with Shivani Seth

    Shivani Seth is a South Asian American queer woman and the child of 1st generation immigrants from India. She’s a long-time writer, but a new publisher. I loved her article, Healing is Valuable Work and that’s the very topic we dive into in this episode. We chat about how she restructured her life after burn out, how we can come to be more generous with our definition of “work,” and the cultural beliefs we have to undo in order to see the true value of taking care of ourselves.

Thought-provoking

Some of the people Sarah interviews are kind of wacky, but I nevertheless really enjoy listening and i have discovered a lot of interesting people and ideas through the podcast. Unfortunately the sound quality is not very good (have a kickstarter to buy some better equipment!!) I would love if you would interview some female musicians!
