Rising Whole is about listening to our bodies and all their innate wisdom, getting back into our bodies and letting them guide us as we make powerful choices moment to moment for our lives, rather than fighting them over how they should be. Join me as we discuss tools such as intuitive eating, and intuitive movement all through the lense of Health at Every size, as a way to listen to and honor our bodies. When we believe we are already whole, complete and perfect; the possibilities for freedom are endless.
A Look Into My Book of Poetry "knotted"

Intuitive Parenting with Karsyn DuPree
Today I talked with Karsyn Dupree! I have known her for quite some time and yet this is the first time we have come together to connect about a wide range of topics we feel similarly about. We talk about eating disorder recovery (in the spotlight and otherwise) all different facets of parenting and motherhood, our intuition, and even enneagram types. We cover SO MUCH here and it is a BIG episode. Give the whole thing a listen!!
Karsyn DuPree is a 26-year-old mama of two boys, Phoenix (2 years) & Sage (10 months) living in Nashville, TN. Karsyn leads a multi-hyphenated life, including running a small handmade shop, training to be a birth doula, occasionally making music with her husband, and now embarking on the podcast venture, Conscious As A Mother.
Stepping into the blogging scene in 2012, Karsyn began her blog initially as a way to share her experience with recovery from an eating disorder. She has since gone on to speak on body positivity, and chooses to reclaim her relationship with her body on a daily basis from a conscious lens of nurturing and respect. In the eight years since its conception, her blog has naturally shifted to a more lifestyle focus, marrying her love for recipes, family, motherhood, design, and personal experiences. For fun, Karsyn is currently in the process of remodeling her family’s 1970s home with her husband, Collin, sharing the journey on her blog and Instagram account.

What Do You Have a Taste For? With Morgan Sinclair
TODAY I talk with Morgan Sinclair of Morgan Sinclair Designs, we talk about her history getting into this work as an eating disorder dietitian, and her studies abroad. We talk a lot about living a life led by your body, following our gut; not only when it comes to food and craving and satisfaction but also big and little life decisions.
Morgan Sinclair is a non-diet dietitian and the founder of Morgan Sinclair Designs, a branding and web design studio for weight inclusive businesses. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences as well as her Master’s of Science in Business from Texas A&M University which has allowed her to transition her career as a dietitian into one where she can work alongside eating disorder clinicians to turn their business dreams into reality! Morgan wears many hats in her work as a Health at Every Size ® clinician, including the clinical outreach representative for an eating disorder treatment center, the conference co-chair for Houston Eating Disorder Specialists, and co-founder of the Soft + Strong Market. Morgan is an Enneagram Type 7, feel-your-feelings, dessert-before-dinner kinda gal from Texas and when she’s not working, she can most likely be found at a coffee shop in Houston or on her way to the airport for a weekend getaway.

Welcome to Rising Whole!
Welcome to my first official episode of the Rising Whole Podcast!
I am so excited to relaunch my work (previously known as The Way You are Project) in this way!
This is a quick episode to very briefly introduce the goal of Rising Whole and ways in which we can connect. Most importantly I briefly talk about the intersection of Race and (everything) Body positivity/Body liberation/fat acceptance etc etc
Any realm of liberation conversations must include race
This is a quickie, so give it a listen and you will hear from me again when the time is right!
Love you big!
