Ever felt overwhelmed by the amount of conflicting information when it comes to health and growth? Host Lauren Vaknine created the Reconditioned Podcast as a way to ensure that EVERYONE has easy and free access to information that will help them live healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives.

After being diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis aged 2, Lauren was wheelchair-bound by 18. After more than a decade immersed in intensive self-study, learning everything there was to learn about the human body and mind, Lauren finally reconditioned herself back to wellness and is now a fully able-bodied business woman, podcast host and mum of 2.

She's now a health writer and leading coach in the fields of wellness, mindset and transformation, in a quest to help others achieve the same, supposedly impossible goals.

Lauren’s work looks at wellness not as a linear, new-age concept, but as the 4 modes of self – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – integrated into one, enabling us to reach our full health and happiness potential.

Whether you are suffering from chronic illness, raising children in a world of conflicting information, you're an entrepreneur wanting to step into your purpose or you simply want to feel empowered and motivated to become the best version of yourself, tune in as Lauren and a host of expert guests uncover the most actionable ways to recondition ourselves back to wellness.

    Ep. 85 - RISE - Understanding Judgement; Why We Judge & Why We Are Affected by Judgement

    Ep. 85 - RISE - Understanding Judgement; Why We Judge & Why We Are Affected by Judgement

    Judgement. We all feel it, towards others, from others, towards ourselves. And yet most of us understand that it doesn’t make us feel good. 

     

    Soooo….

     

    Why do we judge?

    What does judgement mean?

    How does it affect us spiritually? 

    How does it relate to shadow and ego?

    How can we move away from it and indeed, what can happen for us when we do?

     

    In this episode I go deep into the subject of judgement to help us understand the answers to all these questions, and more, to help us move away from judgement and into a place of compassion, self-awareness, self-mastery and interbeing, as opposed to the separation caused by judgement.

    Ep. 84 - CHARLES EISENSTEIN - The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible

    Ep. 84 - CHARLES EISENSTEIN - The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible

    I don’t often get nervous to interview guests, but having Charles Eisenstein on Reconditioned was a huge moment for me.

     

    He is, in my opinion, one of the greatest minds of our time, and his work has not only influenced my work and inspired me to be better, it has also stirred the deep inner knowing inside me that we - humanity - are doing it wrong, but that there are solutions to do life better.  

     

    If you haven’t yet heard of Charles Eisenstein, I urge you to go to his Substack page and read as many of his essays as you can, including his thought-provoking 2020 essay, Coronation, in reference to the then new coronavirus and all associated measures - measures he prophesised in his earlier book, The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible, which needs to be read by every human.

     

    In the episode we discuss:

    The myth of separation and the Story of Interbeing
    Parenting with a mindset of Interbeing
    The purpose of challenging times and how to navigate them
    Sacred economics
    The story of health technology
    The meaning of life
    and other totally intangible stuff that cannot be conveyed here on this page, so just sit back and listen :) 

     

    I mention in the episode Charles’s short film, A Gathering of the Tribe, created by Aubrey Marcus to offer us all access to the life-defining story Charles tells in the final chapter of The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible. Nothing has touched my soul and brought me back into a place of trust and Interbeing as much as this film has, so I would highly recommend watching it.

    Ep. 83 - RISE - Why We’re Chronically Infertile (& my own fertility journey)

    Ep. 83 - RISE - Why We’re Chronically Infertile (& my own fertility journey)

    Fertility is a topic I’ve been wanting to speak about for a while. 

     

    I’m hugely passionate about getting to the bottom of health concerns and finding the missing pieces. I believe every health challenge has a cause, whether that be physical, emotional or spiritual - perhaps sometimes a culmination of all 3.

     

    In this episode I talk you through my own turbulent fertility journey, before going into the nitty gritty behind why such a staggering amount of us are struggling with fertility in the modern world, the truth about why it’s happening, and what we can do - and need to do - in order to change it, not just for ourselves individually, but for the human race.

     

    It’s deep, it’s intense, it hits on some hard truths, but it’s hugely expensive.

     

    In the episode I mentioned a couple of articles I’ve written:

    8 Tips to Holistically Aid Your Fertility Treatment
    When the Detox Button is Switched Off (our genes are not our destiny)
    MTHFR - The Gene Mutation that Could be Harming Your Unborn Baby

    Ep.81 – JO FAIRLEY - When Entrepreneurship Meets Intentionality, w/ Green & Blacks Founder

    Ep.81 – JO FAIRLEY - When Entrepreneurship Meets Intentionality, w/ Green & Blacks Founder

    Jo Fairley is the mind and intuitive force behind the pioneering and industry-defining organic chocolate, Green & Blacks.

     

    Due to a failed crop of peanuts that her husband, Craig Sams, was unable to use for his world-famous Whole Earth peanut butter, they were introduced to a crop of cocoa beans that Jo had the initiative to recognise as something extremely special.

     

    From that, she decided to put every penny from her flat sale into the founding of Green & Blacks, and in this episode, we speak about that journey that changed the planet, her life in the world of business, and how that tied so beautifully into wellness and sustainability (and we talk a lot about chocolate!)

     

    Discussed:

    Fashion Declares by The People Tree’s Safia Minnie

    Dr Vandana Shiva

    L’occitane Divine Harmony Cream

    Ep. 80 – RISE – Mastering Triggers Like a Pro

    Ep. 80 – RISE – Mastering Triggers Like a Pro

    I LOVE giving you guys tangible tools to help you move into a place of serious inner growth and self-mastery. And nothing screams self-mastery like the kind of emotional mastery that gets you to the level of being able to manage triggers like an emotional intelligence pro!

     

    In this episode I explain:

     

    What a trigger actually is
    Why we get triggered
    How our triggers relates to shadow and the darker parts of ourselves
    How to recognise the darker parts of ourselves
    How to overcome being triggered
    Emotional intelligence

     

    In the Recondition Your Life Academy I teach my students how to do this in a personally guided process, so if you’re interested in reaching this level of self-mastery, make sure you get your name on the waiting list for the next semester over at www.laurenvakninecoaching.com/recondition
