    Eighteen: Redefining Vulnerability with Shari Hampton

    Eighteen: Redefining Vulnerability with Shari Hampton

    Full Moon Monday!!! Yowza!!!!!!
    I’m so glad that when I decided to put this here podcast on the internets that I decided early on that Monday was the day to do it. I don’t know about you, but Mondays are generally tough days for me, so I’m really glad that no matter what, I will always have this tiny piece of joy and excitement no matter what happens, because it’s podcast day. 
    And today is extra, extra rad because I got to sit with someone who I’ve admired from afar for quite some time and then the podcast was the vehicle for me to swallow my nerves, reach out, and be blown away by the conversation I got to have.
    Our guest today, the AMAZING Shari Hampton, is a podcaster, on and off again blogger and, founder of Served Up Sober. Shari battled alcohol and drug addiction for over 35 years until one day five years ago, she landed in the arms of a retired psychiatrist and anthropologist turned holistic wellness enthusiast. She worked with this husband and wife team who merged their perspectives into a regime that combined various holistic modalities and focused on introspective examination and healing. It was through that experience she was able to build a life of recovery and gained awareness around how recovery exists at the crossroads of traditional methods and holistic ones. Shari soon felt a deep calling to create her own program that blended the two together.
    She founded Served Up Sober because there is a stigma attached to healing that needs to be broken. Served stands firm in the power that we get to change and heal into our better selves and offers holistic support services in the form of weekly and monthly classes curated specifically for the sober and sober curious. As Shari says “It’s community over everything — always.”
    You can find Shari online below. GO CHECK HER OUT NOW LOL!!!!

    Seventeen: Becoming a Lighthouse with Niki Hale

    Seventeen: Becoming a Lighthouse with Niki Hale

    It’s March! It’s Monday! It’s a grand day that’s inching us closer and closer to that blessed Spring Equinox!
    It’s also a fabulous day because I get to post the amazing conversation that I had with the incredible Niki Hale!
    Born and raised at sea level in the SF Bay Area, she, her husband, and the four-leggeds packed it all up last September to move to Colorado, an hour away from the mile-high city of Denver. This transition has her considering new directions in her work as an artist and trauma-sensitive massage therapist. After closing down her massage studio in Oakland, and leaving her home for the last 33 years, she’s navigating the groundlessness of shifting identities and ’starting over.'
    She is working on unhooking from our toxic Overculture, slowing down and doing less, and connecting with those in her direct reach. She also quit drinking back in 2016, allowing her to get to a much softer and gentler place in her work, her creative life, and her relationship to self and others. 
    While she is no longer on social media, you can find her at www.starsalignbodywork.com.
    Our conversation today weaves together stories about intuition, sobriety, friendships, and learning to hold our own. It’s truly magnificent and as always, I feel so honoured that I get to speak the words and then put them out there into the world for your hearts and ears. Enjoy my friends!

    Sixteen: Intuitive Healing with Amy Alaman (Part 2)

    Hi all!!
    We’re back this week with Amy Alaman in Part 2 of Intuitive Healing. We talk life post-Africa which means we’re talking intuition, intentionality and about figuring out how to take care of ourselves (among other things of course lol!).
    If you missed it from last week…Amy is founder of Sacred Paintbrush Arts and is a Master Facilitator of intuitive painting, creative healer, and whimsy chaser. She has been clean and active in 12-step recovery since 2002, having gone to rehab at the age of 17. Amy has been practicing intuitive painting through Creative Juices Arts since 2013, and in 2019 began offering her own workshops. Amy is bridging the wellness gap by bringing the healing of the intuitive painting process to women of color and other underrepresented populations. She offers intuitive painting workshops designed to help people reconnect with their often traumatized and abandoned creative selves. She also sells hand-painted wearable art jewelry and other hand-crafted goods at her Sacred Adornment pop-up shops.

The interview that I did with Amy Alaman was nothing short of magic so you get Part I this week and then Part II next week. It’s about intuition. It’s about healing. It’s about trust. It’s about so many beautiful things it was just too darn good to rush!

    Thirteen: Radical Fitness with Luca Page

    Thirteen: Radical Fitness with Luca Page

    First week in February and we’re killin’ it (or at least that’s what I’m telling myself lol!).
    This week, we’re continuing the impromptu “series” on all things body care with the incredible Luca Page. Luca has been a personal trainer living and loving in Oakland for over five years. After falling in love with working out, they wanted to share that passion with anyone who wanted to find it. As a queer person of color, they wanted to be able to open and run a gym for the LGTBQ/POC/Body Positive community. With the help and support of their community in Oakland, this dream became a possibility and Radically Fit was born. They are so grateful to be able to serve the community by doing something they truly love to do while reshaping people’s view of what “being fit” looks like. 
    It’s all about empowerment and Luca helps us reconnect with that in this week’s episode.
     Enjoy!
