    Life in the Time Of Coronavirus

    Life in the Time Of Coronavirus

    Our podcast this week is all about life in the time of Coronavirus. How we're staying sane, how we're sitting with uncertainties and fear, how humor is so important to mental health. In these unprecedented times, we are trying to find hope and lightness so that we can get through-- stronger, more connected, grateful and wiser-- on the other side.

    The Complicated Reality of Being a Social Creature

    The Complicated Reality of Being a Social Creature

    In this week's episode, Kali and Bernice talk about all things social, from COVID-19, awkward interactions at parties, the safety of an OULA circle and (inspired by Glennon Doyle's new book) becoming Untamed. They talk about their collaborative relationship and how their ego may tell them they're not enough on their own but really their magic is when they come together to create. As humans, social creatures, it can be so hard to navigate the connection that we equally crave and fear, but how important it is for the expansiveness of humanity.

    What the Super Bowl Told Us About Women's Empowerment

    What the Super Bowl Told Us About Women's Empowerment

    Kali and Bernice are back at the mic after taking a bit of a hiatus! The Super Bowl sprung them out of Podcast Retirement because they were all fired up about peoples' responses to the halftime show. On this podcast they try to understand the strong push back that men and women alike gave to Shakira and JLo's performance! As you can imagine, Bernice was pole dancing while watching it and Kali and her girls were talking about whose costumes were their favorite without even a clue that this was going to be controversial. Is it fear based? Is it learned? Is it from the Puritans? Is it from our witchy background being burned at the stake? WHAT IS IT? Take a listen to our perspective!

    You Can't Rush Your Healing

    You Can't Rush Your Healing

    This week, Bernice and Kali discuss our human tendency to rationalize grief. The truth is, grief doesn't follow the rules. It can not be compared or put on a timeline or diminished and whatever you are feeling right now, and especially during the holiday season, deserves your attention. They talk about their own experiences with loss and grief and even their own shame about their grief. Have you ever felt like you shouldn't be so sad about something because someone has it worse? Yes this thought process can sometimes be of assistance with cultivating gratitude, but it can also stop you from fully feeling what is coming up. We hope this podcast gives you permission to be sad or disappointed or longing during the holidays.

    Ancestral Wisdom and our Search for Belonging

    Ancestral Wisdom and our Search for Belonging

    In this episode, Bernice and Kali refer to their new song of the week, "She'd Say" by Andy Grammer, about what his mother who has passed would say to his daughter. This song prompted them to reflect on their own knowledge of their lineage and how to tap into ancestral wisdom. They wrestle with cultural appropriation and their longing for connection to the wisdom that elders hold. Their ancestors migrated to the United States, and like so many others, lost their ancestral wisdom. Did they give it up, was it taken from them, where is it and how do we find it?

    Why We Self-Sabotage

    Why We Self-Sabotage

    Today, Bernice and Kali talk about self-sabotage, after being prompted by the new song of the week, Flames by R3HAB & ZAYN. They share different times in their lives when they have either self-sabotaged or almost self-sabotaged. They explore why we self-sabotage and what the fear is that lies under this need to destruct. It oftentimes comes down to a desire to control outcome or triggers feelings of shame or unworthiness. We have to identify where the desire for this behavior is coming from and what are the outcomes if we choose to self-sabotage.

Always a treat

I think I've listened to all (or nearly all) the podcasts and they are always a treat. Often I get a belly laugh, often I am surprised by how their topics hit home, often I am led to deeper thoughts and realizations. I hope you keep up these podcasts, Kali and Bernice. You are fun to listen to and more importantly, your messages are spot on!

Love this podcast!

I heard you say in this week's episode that you were dismayed at the fact that no one was listening- I wanted to tell you that I am! I loved your show and have been listening for at least a year. You two are like big sisters to me, and your show is always a calming, comforting hug that I love to enjoy while driving. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this show- I would be sad without it, and always love listening!
