4 episodes

Each episode, a new guest joins me at the campfire and shares 2 impactful stories- the first story connecting to a theme from the previous guest's story, and the second story illuminating a new theme that will be passed on to the next guest. In our ritual of tell, tell, pass, we forge connections through stories, reminding ourselves that what makes us human is all at once remarkably familiar and wonderfully unique. Weaving our stories around a proverbial fire, we invite you to journey with us to make meaning around why we are here, where we came from, and where we are going. We hope we inspire you to consider what story you will bring the next time you pull up a seat at a campfire.

    #104 ALICEANNE LOFTUS Taking Responsibility For Your Own Happiness & Learning Love Languages

    This week I sit down with best-selling author, business owner, educator, and leadership coach AliceAnne Loftus. AliceAnne generously shares her story of resilience, teaching us a powerful lesson on taking responsibility for one’s own life through the good and the bad. In her second story, AliceAnne shifts her exploration to love, particularly how understanding love languages empowers how we give and receive love to those we are in relationship with.

    #103 Dr. CHARLOTTE ACHIENG-EVENSEN The experience of grief in immigration & the journey towards peace after loss

    This week, I sit down with masterful storyteller, educator, and researcher, Charlotte Achieng-Evensen. Charlotte transports us her very personal “Coming to America” story, where she explores the theme of loss– loss of the familiar, aspects of identity, and even a sense of freedom. Her second story explores her journey through grieving and the ways that she moved through that grief to peace and joy–a story of resilience.

    Here are the links to Dr. Charlotte Achieng-Evensen's published works:

    #102: ANABEL MUÑOZ: Giving Herself Permission to Change & Greiving Past Versions of Herself

    #102: ANABEL MUÑOZ: Giving Herself Permission to Change & Greiving Past Versions of Herself

    This week I sat down with Anabel Munoz, the wonderfully talented TV news journalist at ABC 7 Los Angeles. In her stories, Anabel explores the ideas of giving herself permission to change and to not have everything figured out. A story that begins with hair uncovers the symbolic shift to explore the tensions of who we are expected to be, versus who we allow ourselves to be as we experiment and grow. In another story, Anabel explores the topic of grieving past versions of herself as she has matured into who she is today, embracing who she will be tomorrow in this process of loss and becoming.

    #101 SABIAN ZEIN ON RESPONSIBILITY & PERMISSION: Becoming Who I Want to Be & Being Unapologetically Palestinian

    This week I sat down with Sabian Zein, an amazingly successful entrepreneur with a heart of gold, who happens to be my former student and now a close family friend. Sabian explores themes of taking action and responsibility for creating his fullest life and becoming the person he wants to be. He gives valuable insight into how he elevated 3 areas of his life: mindset, body, and finances. In another story, Sabian surfaces the theme of giving himself radical permission, to not only claim his Palestinian identity but, in his words, to shout it from the rooftops in celebration.
