    Discovering Your Life’s Purpose — Sahara Rose

    Discovering Your Life’s Purpose — Sahara Rose

    If you have ever disappointed a loved one by following your truth, you will know just how painful it is. And although it hurts, not living in alignment with your life’s purpose will ultimately cause you much more pain. Sahara Rose has been there, let down her parents, and now wants to help you overcome the fear of judgment and criticism in her new book, Discover Your Dharma. In this episode, Sahara opens up about her background and the expectations placed on her as the child of Iranian immigrants. We hear about the fight she had with them and why this resulted in her finally feeling free. Then, we get into what the meaning of dharma is and how we can think of it as the mission statement of our lives. It might seem like getting closer to your dharma is a journey of seeking, but, in fact, it is about remembering who you were always born to be. Sahara also walks us through the three ways we can discover our dharma along with the nine dharma archetypes. Although we will have three to five dominant dharmas, we need them all, which is why it is necessary to see how they can work together and enhance one another. The conversation wraps up with talking about embodiment, and the work Sahara is doing to get a place of less exertion for greater reward. If you feel stuck in any way or disconnected from a purpose you know is within you, this conversation is sure to spark some questions to get you on a journey of discovery and remembrance.

    Why Unlearning is the Key to Becoming - Martha Beck

    Why Unlearning is the Key to Becoming - Martha Beck

    This week I’m thrilled to speak with a woman whose work I’ve followed for years.

    Martha Beck, PhD, is a New York Times bestselling author, life coach, speaker, and holds three degrees from Harvard University. Oprah calls her “one of the smartest women I know.” Martha walked away from the religious Mormon community she was raised in, exposed her father, and wrote about the dark secrets and hypocrisy of the Mormon church in her book Leaving the Saints. She received backlash from the church, but in the process, found her true, whole self.

    In this episode, Martha and I discuss why the intellect is important, but a deeper connection to nature and with our own souls is what the world truly needs. You’ll learn how breaking away from cultural rules brings us into alignment with our true selves, and we become whole, healthy, connected individuals full of integrity.

    This is a beautiful conversation heroine, one of the top interviews in all my years of doing the show.

    Show Notes

    - Martha on being raised as Mormon royalty due to his father’s “scholarly” work.
    - Discovering the hypocrisy surrounding certain religious people, including her father.
    - The intense experience of leaving the church and, with that, her family, friends, and culture.
    - How she got the courage to confront the deep religious conditioning she grew up in.
    - The crossroads experience of her pregnancy with her Down’s syndrome boy, Adam.
    - Hear why Martha felt like she needed to unlearn everything that she was taught at Harvard.
    - Why caring for a fragile life is the most-needed skill in the world right now.
    - The restrictive good girl archetype as a socially constructed self for many women.
    - Distinguishing between the essential self that is natural and the social self that is cultural.
    - The split that happens when people believe things that are contrary to their essential self.
    - Understanding that finding and claiming your true nature does not come without opposition.
    - Withstanding backlash, the role of shame, and grieving the loss of cultural connection.
    - Why, for Martha, life coaching is such a powerful, necessary tool for society.
    - What the flip side of the Drama Triangle means for persecutors, victims, and rescuers.
    - How wayfinding can help us discover our deeper purpose and navigate through the chaos.
    - Find out how existing in alignment with your true nature brings you closer to the supernatural.
    - The magic of the written word when we write from a powerful connection to truth.

She explains the principles of The Work, and the four key questions we need to ask in order to change our beliefs. This episode is filled with practical, simple steps to help you become more conscious of your thoughts and free yourself from suffering.

Black Lives Matter

Your podcast today on Black Lives Matter felt so soothing and sane. Your declaration of wanting to repair any wrongs you may have unintentionally made came across to me as authentic and healing and with such a positive vibe. I will be curious to hear of any dialogues that result.
Thanks.
