    Good Girls Talk About Sex & Context with Leah Carey & Emily Ann Peterson

    Good Girls Talk About Sex & Context with Leah Carey & Emily Ann Peterson

    Today we get to discuss something we haven't really talked much about on this show! It's kind of shocking really when you think about it. But Leah Carey is the perfect guest to pop this bravery cherry of ours because she is a Sexual Communication Coach!
    In this episode, you'll hear Leah Carey and our founder, Emily Ann Peterson, discuss the importance of context to your sexual life, how Leah's context defined her brave sexual journey and blossoming, and other lovely tidbits that you will really appreciate.
    We have a feeling you'll be hearing more from Leah in the future! There's so much to learn from the bravery of intimacy!
    About Leah Carey Leah Carey is a Sex Educator and Sexual Communication Coach who helps people learn to communicate about sex so they can get what they really want in the bedroom - rather than just tolerating what they’re getting. She is the host of the podcast “Good Girls Talk About Sex.”
    Sexual freedom is a subject that is deeply personal to Leah because she spent most of her life being a VERY good girl. Most of the sex she had was either boring or painful, but she endured it because she didn’t know she was allowed to ask for anything different.
    Having taken her own journey to sexual freedom, she is now passionate about breaking the silence, fear, and shame around women’s sexuality and pleasure, and redefining what it means to be a “good girl.”

    How to Have a Vision of Possibility for 2020 (Plus New Co-host, Danielle Hope Diamond!)

    How to Have a Vision of Possibility for 2020 (Plus New Co-host, Danielle Hope Diamond!)

    We have such an exciting episode for you today! To coincide with last month's bravery ingredient of Vision of Possibility, I wanted to introduce you to someone very special: Danielle Hope Diamond
    Danielle reached out to me to potentially become a guest expert of The School of Bravery and get interviewed on the podcast. However, after getting to know her very briefly, it became clear that she should be much more than just a one-time guest on our little podcast.
    Danielle is our new podcast co-host for The School of Bravery! Hooray!
    At the moment, she and I are hoping to release one joint episode like this one each month and one solo episode each. When we have appropriate guests to interview, we'll also release those as they arise too.
    I'm so excited for you to get to know Danielle more as the year unfolds for us! I think you'll catch her unique Vision of Possibility like I have over the last month that she and I have worked together on all this for you! Enjoy!

    Cyberstalking: Vulnerability & Power of Choice

    Cyberstalking: Vulnerability & Power of Choice

    Note: This episode might contain triggering content for some audience members.
    This month in The School of Bravery we've been focusing on the bravery ingredient of POWER OF CHOICE, while last month we covered VULNERABILITY. Both topics relate to what I want to bring up with you today...
    Cyberstalking.
    This is one of the rawest and un-edited podcast episodes I've ever published. There is crying in this episode, but you'll also hear hope and thankfully, power of choice.
    I've been silent on this podcast and on social media for very good reason recently. But the metaphorical duct tape needed to come off today because 1) I'm going into the studio to record my next album and I wanted you to know and 2) because it was time to let you know what really happened since I returned home from my last round of travels...
    If you or someone you know could use a boost or a new perspective on stalking, stalkers, and cyberstalking -- please send them my way. I don't know everything, but I do know that it is very serious (often deadly) and can rattle even the strongest among us.
    Here's to finding the safety we need and to taking the duct tape of fear off our mouths. Here's to greater visibility, mental health for all, and not letting fear stop us. Here's to bravery feeling easier every single day.

    Fabienne Raphaël on Taking Big Risks

    Fabienne Raphaël on Taking Big Risks

    Because this month we're focusing on the bravery ingredient of Risk, it's the perfect time to talk with my business colleague, Fabienne Raphaël!
    In today's episode, she and I discuss things like why risks are so important to feats of bravery, how your life can change for the better because of risks, and what it can look like to make risky decisions.
    As a guest expert, Fabienne Raphaël and I also spent some time with students of the School of Bravery in a students-only guest expert training. In that training, she dives a little deeper into risky decisions by outlining the very first thing she recommends doing before taking a big risk. I highly recommend listening to that.
