Being Your Own Health Advocate + Healthy Tips for the Holidays w/ Dr. Lisa Koers
We have the great privilege of chatting with long time member, Dr. Lisa Koers about her practice as a Direct Primary Care Physician and grab some quick tips on how to stay healthy through the holidays.
TLDR: Direct Primary Care is a way to be a more active participant in your own health, and the management of it. Dr. Koers focuses on integrative health techniques that suit each individual patient and family.
Some tips shared in this episode:
1. Honor the celebratory rhythm of this season and don't guilt yourself about celebrating. Enjoy this time!
2. Goal set for your health.
3. Prioritize sleep!
4. Manage relationships (positive and negative) through this time. Notice which ones bring you joy and which ones you avoid. Now is a great time to work with both ends of the spectrum.

We loved this conversation and hope you enjoy it too! Stay safe, mask up, wash your hands and keep on keepin' on!

Seeking & Holding Firm to the Truth w/ Purvi Lippincott
Wowowowow. This week is so dreamy as this episode features the one and only Purvi Lippincott. We chat about her love for Gandhi, social justice, her history in the criminal justice/legal field + working for the Indiana State Senate, upholding truth and so much more.
Fun fact: Purvi has a tattoo of Gandhi's signature on the back of her neck! Did you know she has a major in criminal justice AND psychology? Learn more about her lived experience as an Asian American, as someone who admires and has studied Gandhi and how we might implement the concept of satyagraha into our daily lives.
If you love Purvi, this is worth a listen just to peer into what makes this powerful teacher the dynamic goddess that she is. If you're curious about how we go on from the news of Biden and Harris moving into the whitehouse, and how we might carry the torch of truth with them- listen in!
Making Your Vote Your Daily Vow w/ Amanda Friesen, PhD
We had the pleasure of speaking with professor, political scientist and all around class act, Amanda Friesen. We discuss why voting matters, why it is the bare minimum requirement as a citizen, and how you can engage beyond voting to live your values and your vow as a citizen day in and day out. Make your vote your vow to stay engaged in the process of democracy!

Sex in a Pandemic w/ Mary-Margaret Sweeney
It's unfair to open every podcast with- GAH this one's sooooo good... because they all are. BUT SERIOUSLY STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE IT IS SO DAMN GOOD (run-on sentence intentional, you need to hear this!). Has your sex life been struggling (or, non-existent) in 2020?
We host the brilliant Mary-Margaret Sweeney this week who is a sex therapist, social worker, yoga teacher and all around good-time-gal to discuss SEX. We define sex, we talk about how we can all re-define sex, how we can make pleasure a more positive outlet in our lives, and more more more. It's so good and so necessary- get into it.
Like this? Join us in November for this important Yoga Nerd Out session (11/16-11/19). This is a member's only event, but don't worry- you can join for as low as $68 which is more than a steal to join this program alone!
You learn more about and contact Mary-Margaret via her website, email (email@example.com) or follow her on instagram @seekandsummon
