Let's be real. Being an adult isn't always as easy as we thought it would be! Often, we experience things that are challenging, complicated and even though we're not equipped for it we sometimes pretend or think we should have ALL the answers. However, many experiences are shared by others and don't have to be trial by fire!

It is intended to support joyous, well-rounded, and informed adults "To Be The Change They Want To See" in a fun, inspiring, and accessible way.

How to Have Healthy Intimate Relationships (& Why Its Important) w/ Angela Amias
Guest Angela Amias, LCSW, is a trauma informed relationship therapist. We discuss the loneliness epidemic and her lessons learned in healing her own relationship trauma as well as those of the many clients she's worked with.
Along with her partner, Daniel Boscaljon, PhD, they have distilled learnings of trauma responses in relationships to 5 relationship archetypes. These archetypes provide insight into the patterns we default to in navigating the relationships that matter most and how to transcend them to be authentic and still feel connected. Lastly, we talk about the essential ingredients of a nurturing connection.

Nov: Upcoming Introductory Workshop to A Course In Miracles
A Course In Miracles has been a great presence in my life that I often don't talk about. Over the years I've read many books, taken courses, gone to therapy, and much more. Of all those things, I attribute The Course to answering many unanswered questions I've had for a long time and it has given me a greater Spiritual context to live each day in; one that is empowering and helped me feel more loving and peaceful as I practice it over time. It has been such a private journey for a long time and recently I've felt inspired to share its teachings combined with my teaching style and personal experiences in a way I've never seen. Intrigued?

Women + Anger + Power ep 29
When the dominant group expresses anger it is usually respected as an expression of power. But that same anger is usually discouraged, undermined, and/or disregarded when it is expressed by an oppressed group. In patriarchal societies, for many centuries women have been socialized to ignore, suppress, or discount their feelings/anger/needs to keep the peace.
My three female guests all managed to go against the grain and keep a relationship with their anger. We discuss their challenges, learnings, and the gifts of sometimes being an angry woman!
