    Brown Enough with Christopher Rivas

    Brown Enough with Christopher Rivas

    Christopher Rivas is a multi-talented, multi-dimensional writer, speaker, and storyteller to name just a few of his skills. He’s the author of the soon-to-be published book Brown Enough and creator of the Rubirosa podcast. His work encourages us to ask deeper questions about our culture, our histories, and our relationships to the people in our lives.
    Today, he’s the first man I’ve had on the Embodied podcast in two years. Christopher and I talk about how we both relate to our Brownness, how whiteness and capitalism have, intentionally or not, separated us from aspects of our cultural heritage, and how storytelling can connect us with pieces of our history we feel removed from.
    Christopher shares story after story with us in this episode, from humorous anecdotes about a ridiculously placed shower to heartfelt recollections of how his work allowed his father to reflect on his own assimilation into white culture. 
    I hope this episode encourages you to keep digging into your own healing and your ancestral history, to keep reaching out with empathy and understanding to those around you, and to learn to build your own stories that can connect you with your own individual culture and your inner self.
    In episode 401 we discuss:
    [01:19] An introduction to Christopher and his work on storytelling

    [08:43] How Christopher’s dating life helped him to reevaluate what he’d been taught about whiteness, beauty, and culture

    [13:02] Defining “body of culture” and how it affects Brown people

    [17:31] How Christopher’s father and his assimilation into white culture influenced Christopher’s work

    [21:22] The healing effect that Christopher’s storytelling work has had on his father and his ability to connect to his original culture

    [27:38] The craziest story about LA and inappropriately installed showers from Christopher’s book 

    [33:32] How learning a new language can be a deeply humbling and empathic experience

    [40:41] How Christopher views climate and infrastructure reform as an opportunity to express empathy and care for our neighbors

    [44:15] How Christopher discovered the real James Bond (he was Dominican) and why he became so determined to share this story with the rest of world

    [51:39] Why stories like Rubirosa offer everyone, regardless of their culture, an opportunity to challenge their heroes and ask better questions about their history

    [59:33] Why accepting your multidimensionality and rejecting the “boxes” society places us in can open you up to new realities

    Celebrating 400 Episodes!

    Celebrating 400 Episodes!

    This week we’re celebrating Episode 400 of the Embodied Podcast! I can’t tell you all how much I appreciate your time, your love and your community over these last 400 episodes. It’s been a labor of love, joy, and what I call holy consistency over the years.
    On my 39th birthday, inside the Wild Soul Sacred body Community, many of our members shared what the community and the podcast have taught them about life, spirituality, self-love, and coming home to themselves. It meant so much to me, not just because of the out-pouring of love, but also because it captures so clearly what I want this space to be: a healing, grounded, no-b******t community where we can find and explore our true selves, cultivate more personal relationships with the divine, and learn to appreciate our bodies for a million reasons aside from how they look.
    While there’s a sea of shallow “spiritual influencers” selling cookie-cutter ideal lifestyles you could be listening to, I’m so grateful you’re here, and that you’re also about collective healing, joy, and liberation. In this upcoming season, I’ll be exploring joy and the way that joy is instrumental in our continued liberation. I want to remind you to keep reaching out for joy, to keep searching for the things that bring you deep and encompassing joy, and to practice the holy consistency that helps to feel joy and create a full, beautiful life for yourself. 
     Looking forward to our next 400 episodes! In episode 400 we discuss: [01:23] Your reminder to be comfortable and liberate yourself from the restraints of “professionalism” placed on you by others [04:47] My birthday experience and what your words and notes meant to me [05:51] How anyone with a relationship to the Divine can be a mystic [07:19] Why I talk about God and invite my community to have their own spiritual, mystical experiences [08:23] Why I want you to take what you need from this space, leave what doesn’t work for you, and be the most YOU that you can be [12:14] How to join our welcoming, no-b******t, spiritual community [13:35] Why we’ll be exploring joy in this new season of the podcast [16:04] How joy can help us create a reality to crowd out the “s****y stuff” trying to force its way into our lives [17:26] How holy consistency creates an energetic foundation for our lives For full show notes and resources, head to https://untameyourself.com/podcasts/400
     
    About the EMBODIED Podcast with Elizabeth DiAlto 
    Since 2013 I’ve been developing a body of work that helps women embody self love, healing and wholeness. We do this by focusing on the four levels of consciousness - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
    In practical terms this looks like exploring tools and practices to help you  tune into the deep wisdom of the body and the knowing of the heart, which I believe are gateways to our souls. Then we cultivate a new relationship with our minds that allows the mind to serve this wisdom and knowing and soul connection, rather than override it, which is what many of us were taught.
    If you’ve been doing self help or spiritual development work for a while, these are the types of foundational things that often people overlook in pursuit of fancier concepts that often aren’t practical or sustainable. Here, we will focus on building these strong foundations so you can honestly and thoroughly embody self love.

    My Sacred Slut Summer

    My Sacred Slut Summer

    After spending most of my life exploring my sexuality through the lens of monogamy, I discovered a surprising truth about myself: I don’t actually want one romantic partner. This revelation led me to a new way of looking at my relationships and opened the door for me to finally explore non-monogamy.
    I spent the last several months, which I dubbed my Sacred Slut Summer, intentionally exploring non-monogamy and how my intimate, romantic relationships can be sacred and fulfilling without being exclusive. Choosing to explore love and intimacy through open relationships is a culmination of all my previous romantic experiences, and while some of those were better than others, each experience led me on this path to accepting the kind of love I find so much more satisfying - at least for now!
    It’s also offered me a new opportunity to explore the kind of transparency and discernment that non-monogamy requires, and allowed me to lean into my interactions with the Divine and my self-love framework as I accept this new revelation in my romantic life.
    I’m no expert on non-monogamy, but I hope you’ll find insights that you can take from my experiences and filter them into your own life and relationships, whether they are open, exclusive, or something else entirely. In episode 399 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss: [06:05] My first experience with my sexuality [08:25] How I’ve learned to appreciate all the lessons I’ve gained from my past intimate relationships [11:49] The differences between my conscious hoe phase and the more reckless promiscuity of my teens and twenties [13:40] How taking a break from dating taught me about experiencing intimacy and pleasure in a more sacred way [16:55] How I came to the revelation that I really didn’t want a partner [19:37] The sacred prostitute and my inspiration for my Sacred Slut Summer [26:01] Discovering the relational “nutrients” that I could only receive through intimate, romantic relationships [28:53] Redefining my views on non-monogamy [34:01] Why my relationship with my constellation of companions is so fulfilling right now [37:13] How this exploration fits into my self-love framework [40:48] The absolute, wildest story from my Sacred Slut Summer and the opportunity it offered to practice discernment  [43:56] How I offered opportunity to heal and repair the transparency and openness in this relationship [47:29]  Why I’m still not comfortable offering specific advice on this topic For full show notes and resources, head to https://untameyourself.com/podcasts/399

    39 Lessons in 39 Years

    39 Lessons in 39 Years

    It’s a season of beginnings: a new season of the podcast, a new year of living (I’ll be 39 in a few days), a new way of looking at the intimate relationships in my life, and more. 
    As I move into this new season, I want to take a moment to reflect back on my 39 years of life and some of the most important lessons I’ve learned along the way. 
    In this episode, I’m letting myself flow and bringing you insights as I feel them. It’s an exploration of personal evolution and self-discovery.  I’m diving into self-love, emotional intelligence, the sacred, humility, relationships, love, and letting these lessons flow through intuitively.
    All of these little lessons have led me toward liberation and healing. They’ve allowed me to architect and embrace the peaceful, joyful life that I have. 
    And while every lesson might not be immediately relevant to you, I hope you’ll be able to filter each one through your own unique lens and your own intuition to find the bits of truth that resonate with you.  In episode 398 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss: [01:03] Reflections as I enter my 39th year [04:58] How letting go of perfectionism is an act of self-love [09:30] Discovering your relationship with yourself and developing your inner loving voice [15:33] How embracing humility lets us release self-importance [20:01] How I’m rethinking my intimate relationships [25:20] Self-acceptance and not getting stuck on the “healing hamster wheel” [30:03] The difference between judgment and discernment [31:21] How the soul is the bridge to the Divine [34:15] Why I don’t believe in being “single” [37:42] The difference between compassion and tolerance [40:01] How curiosity allows to stay open for growth and learning [44:08] How shifting our context can expand our options  [48:05] Finding liberation in whatever context you need [51:57] Don’t be afraid of shit [54:43] Holding on to your integrity and telling the truth as your grow and change [55:46] Responding in love to yourself and others For full show notes and resources, head to https://untameyourself.com/podcasts/398

    How to Celebrate Mary Magdalene Feast Day

    How to Celebrate Mary Magdalene Feast Day

    Mary Magdalene has given me so much  and in celebration of Mary Magdalene Feast Day this July 22nd I want to give something to you. 
    In Episode 397 of The Embodied Podcast I show you how I engage with Mary Magdalene, who to me represents immense compassion and unconditional love. 
    This world is filled with people who are suffering and sometimes I feel like there is a misconception around unconditional love. 
    Unconditional love does NOT look like being a punching bag; you do NOT have to sacrifice yourself to manage the feelings of others who are in a worse place than you. 
    From Mary Magdalene I’ve learned what true unconditional love and compassion actually look like, what it means to have heaven on earth, how to be in my body, how to get out of my head and let my soul take up more space. From today’s episode I hope you learn that you too can have the courage to choose yourself; unconditional love takes strength and your strength can help bring healing to the collective. 
    P.s. This is the last episode of The Embodied Podcast before my summer break. I hope you have a wonderful summer and I’ll be back on September 12th with new episodes. 
    In episode 397 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss: [1:10] How Summer break started at The Embodied Podcast [2:25] How Summer break is helping Elizabeth unhook from capitalism and continue her decolonization work and liberation [3:11] What is Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day  [5:20] How Elizabeth engages with Mary Magdalene [6:53] How Elizabeth Celebrates Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day in the business every year [6:53] Special workshop on July 27th with Terri Cole.

    Embodiment, Dream Work and Psychedelic Experiences with Dr Katherine Lawson

    Embodiment, Dream Work and Psychedelic Experiences with Dr Katherine Lawson

    Dr. Katherine Lawson is  a Mind Body Medicine practitioner who is deeply interested in therapies that stimulate one's capacity for self-knowledge and self-healing through self-care. She focuses on the interactions between the brain, mind, body, and personality, and the powerful ways in which mental, social, spiritual, and behavioral factors affect health and happiness.
    Dr. Katherine has been looking at dreamwork, mysticism and psychedelic experiences for almost two decades as a way to help people experience whatever healing and growth is available to them. 
    Now her biggest work revolves around helping people prepare for psychedelic experiences and in training them how to integrate those experiences into their lives (post the properly guided psychedelic event) for true healing from trauma and complex trauma.
    In our conversation, Dr. Katherine explains the overlap of dreamwork, psychedelic work and the practice of embodiment. We also got into aging in an empowered way.
    The science is that when your body understands something it sends a message to your brain that changes the way that your brain is wired to respond to certain events. With certain psychedelics, administered at the correct dosage, your brain can no longer hold the space for shame and judgment which frees you to more fully embody and understand yourself. 
    If you’re ready to learn more about psychedelics as well as what it looks like to age empowered and to let go of hard things, listen to episode 396 now! 
    In episode 396 of the Embodied Podcast we discuss: [1:12] How Dr. Katherine communes with God [4:10] Overcoming the fear of death [5:30] Transitioning out of religion and into a broader view of God [9:22] The power of fear in our lives and learning to surrender [12:41] The tension of opposites and the affect the COVID-19 pandemic had on society [14:02] An introduction into Dr. Katherine’s work in dreamwork, mysticism and psychedelics [14:16] Empowered aging - what does it look like and how can it be done [20:12] Properly preparing for psychedelic experiences [21:04] The reasons people are turning to psychedelics for healing [33:50] The different intelligences/natures of psychedelic medicines [37:05] The dual state of consciousness that comes from taking psychedelic medicines [42:34] The benefit of psychedelic therapy over more traditional talk therapy [43:36] Scientific reasons for why psychedelic therapy works when under the proper care [48:32] Three major life events that caused Dr. Katherine to make a major shift in her life [52:16] Putting a dent in grind culture For full show notes and resources, head to https://untameyourself.com/podcasts/396
