    EP 243: How to Manage Your Annoying Cousin (aka "That" person)

    EP 243: How to Manage Your Annoying Cousin (aka "That" person)

    We've all got one of these... Maybe it's a cousin, or family member. Maybe it's a co-worker. Maybe a friend that gets on your nerves. Some people might tell you to just cut them out of your life. We're not those people (extreme cases aside, of course). Because these people a walking opportunities for your own personal development and insight. They can help us see parts of ourselves that we'd rather ignore. They give us a chance to develop new communication skills. Recognize our own triggers and vulnerabilities. But only if you have the right attitude toward them, and toward yourself. If you're like me, and you have trouble peopling from time to time. We'll show you what to do, and what NOT to do in these challenging situations. And who knows. That annoying cousin may just have a part of themselves they've never revealed that's more wonderful than you would have imagined. Let us know what you discover. Nick

    EP 242: How to Keep Your Cool When You're Stretched to the Limit

    EP 242: How to Keep Your Cool When You're Stretched to the Limit

    It's been a minute! And we're so happy to be back in the podcast studio. This episode is based on a question that we get all the time, because it's not always easy to keep up with the pace of our modern world. Even if your life is full of awesome people and things, the sheer volume is sometimes overwhelming. Beyond that, when you start to stretch beyond your comfort zone- mentally, emotionally, spiritually- things can start to spin out. Sometimes this happens without even realizing! Nick shares an incredibly useful shift in perspective that will help you get your feet on the ground, and something simple you can do right now to set things right side up. Kisma goes to her roots in philosophy to cut through all the noise of the mind chatter so you can take your next step and follow through on your dreams. We can't wait to catch you up on all the fun things we've been up to. Listen in because we've got more episodes on the way, so stay tuned for weekly releases.

    EP 240: How to Exist Around Other Humans. Part 3

    EP 240: How to Exist Around Other Humans. Part 3

    I always love it when Kisma goes Cosmic. Today was one of those days. And you might be wondering how this is going to help you exist around other humans (part 3 of our latest series). But being about to see others from the Cosmic level changes everything. It puts everything in its right place and takes off a huge amount of pressure to be anything other than exactly who you are. Existing with other humans is part of the human experience. If you follow the simple instructions at the end of this episode, not only will you have more ease and confidence, you'll also open the door for profound healing and compassion. Atma Namaste!

    EP 239: How to Exist Around Other Humans. Part 2

    EP 239: How to Exist Around Other Humans. Part 2

    Being around other people isn't always easy.   We might be feeling insecure, or comparing ourselves to others. Or maybe feeling misunderstood, like no one will "get" you. Some of us are just very uncomfortable in unfamiliar situations.   We feel you. And I know that the episode we have to share today will hit home.    You'll learn three simple words that will give you everything you need to step in as your Authentic Self with more confidence and make wonderful connections.   P.S. Thanks to Brené Brown for putting these three words together in such an amazing way, and inspiring this conversation.

Practical Woo

I love this podcast. Kisma and Nick dish out knowledge nuggets every time — and I swear, the topic is almost always what I’m dealing with at the moment. Then again, we’re all dealing with craziness these days, right?

Anyway… in a world filled with what I like to call “spiritual and wellness hucksters,” these two are the real deal. I’ve been through my share of horrible experiences in the wellness/spirituality arena, so I’m super wary when it comes to anything that smacks of “woo.” But this is practical — honest. And you won’t have to give away your worldly goods or dance in the moonlight to get these powerful bits of goodness.

Give this one a try. You won’t be disappointed.

THE “Click”

This podcast is so to my taste!

Kisma and Nick bring together a unique blend of elated spiritual wisdom, profound grounding, practical magic and soothing voices. They are the first people that got me listening, really listening, to these teachings. Opening my door and implementing has been the missing piece, the “click.” Beyond grateful to have such access.
