I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose.

In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life?

Welcome back, Rosie!

Rosie brings a deep experience with and knowledge of meditation practices and yoga to her podcast interviews. Rosie’s recent dialogues with Sharon Salzberg and Jen Sincero reflect her capacity for deep, timely conversations that are relevant to my daily challenges and triumphs. And yes, please, to more real talk about menopause!

Real and relatable

Rosie is incredible. She talks about things that are generally not thought about on a daily basis, or how to understand it. She is open about the steps, needed to grow and heal, and become a better version of myself.
