Anti-Capitalist Self-Care with Christy Tending
We’re diving deep into self-care today, fam, and honestly, this conversation couldn’t have come at a better time.
Just to be clear, we’re not talking about the Instagram-picture-perfect-$500-investment kind of self-care.
We’re talking real deal, what-works-best-for-you-not-someone-else self-care.
Our guest this week, Christy Tending, is an activist, educator, writer, and self-care mentor who helps people-pleasers like us create sustainable, anti-capitalist self-care in service of collective liberation. Dayum!
Get ready for a big ol’ permission slip to own your inherent power and get a little inconvenient.
What’s Getting Us Through Right Now
So, we’ve made it to the 10th (or 100th) month of 2020, and the hits just keep coming.
The effects of allthethings — COVID, quarantine, police violence and protests, the election — are compounding, and our standard coping go-to’s just aren’t cutting it anymore.
We need to switch up our practices, so pop in your earbuds and get the scoop on what exactly is getting us through right now.
Burnout, Boundaries, and Healing with the Moon with Cait Byrnes
Us perfectionists, people pleasers, artists, creatives, and empaths, we’re sensitive souls, and we often tend to gravitate toward service-based work as part of our worthiness seeking.
In order to avoid one big B on our path of service, burnout, we need lots of the other big B, boundaries.
Today’s guest, witch and coach Cait Byrnes, is here to teach all of us sensitive souls how to harness the power of the moon and its energy to supercharge our healing and personal growth.
Get ready to learn about all of Cait’s favorite woo practices, which are just another set of tools for self-reflection.
The Uplevel is Real
Always. Be. Upleveling.
Always be striving.
Reaching for more, more, MORE.
That’s the perfectionist way, right?
Can we focus on our own growth without being perfectionistic, radical, or rigid?
Is that even possible?
In this episode, we explore ways to uplevel with more ease, sustainability, and flow.
Getting Our Needs Met in Relationships with Caitlin Cantor
Navigating relationships is never easy, but if you throw some perfectionism in the mix?
Maybe a dash of people pleasing?
Plus a little conflict avoidance on the side?
Well, now you’re talking about a bit of a minefield.
Today’s guest, Certified Sex and Relationship Therapist Caitlin Cantor, is here to help us show up messily, imperfectly, and even badly in relationships, avoid overcontrolling, and have the hard conversations we would so desperately rather sidestep.
Get ready to feel safe and seen, learn how to get your needs met, grow together with your partner, and have a satisfyingly sexy sex life.

What To Do When Nothing’s Working
You know that feeling.
The one where nothing is working, no matter what you try — or how hard.
Nothing makes it any easier, makes you feel any better.
You feel hopeless.
And you don’t know what the hell to do about it.
Before you scream or tear your hair out (Well, scream if you need to.), let’s take half an hour to ride the waves together.

Full of fun, play, wisdom, and compassion
I have been listening to this podcast weekly for over a year. I never miss an episode and look forward to it every Monday! As a recovering perfectionist myself, this podcast truly speaks to me. I love how no matter what the topic, it offers powerful (and empowering!!) guidance on how to get curious about my thoughts and behaviors (even the ones I despise), grow and change in service of my highest aspirations, and cultivate compassion for myself and others. This podcast is my therapy and my joy because Jenna and Ashley are bright, sharp, playful souks. They have THE BEST sense of humor, infusing this podcast with huge amounts of laughter (and laughter is the best medicine). I am eternally grateful for the wisdom these two women share with the world every week.
Realistic Empowerment ✨
These 2 women! I feel like we are sitting around drinking wine - or coffee or lemonade ‘cause we don’t judge - and they are sharing the best sista-friend support to help me live just a little better each day. Screw you perfectionism!!!! Ash & Jenna are here to help us all shine our lights brighter!!! Middle fingers up!! 🖕🌟🌈🌻❤️
Compassionate & competent
The hosts of this podcast are very refreshing to listen to! They don’t claim to know everything and you can tell they walk the walk just as much as they talk! It’s a great forum for anyone who wants to work on growth and self improvement with guests and topics that teach the listener something new OR reframe an old concept into a more relatable construct.
Keep doing what you’re doing Ashley and Jenna! I love working on my perfectionism alongside you two!
