Sitting With Freedom
This week on the Sit With Snit podcast, we will be exploring the channels of freedom with a dear friend, spiritual mentor, and licensed clinical social worker, Ariella Azaraf. Ariella and I met through our time working together at Meor Manhattan and building neighbors on the Upper West Side. In addition to her private practice work, Ariella is also the head of mental health and Manhattan Day School on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I truly feel there is no better person more equipped to help students navigate their internal worlds than Ariella, and after hearing our conversation, you will feel the same. With specialties ranging from anxiety to self-esteem and more, Ariella's approach to her practice involves a strengh-based perspective where we all can harness our potential and break free from the confines of what is nonessential to our being. Ariella and I are fluent in the language of fusing spirituality with psychology, and we hope that through our dialogue, you can tap into the essential part of who you are and liberate yourself from that which holds you back. Are you ready to sit with freedom?
Sitting With Your Mind & Body
This week on the Sit With Snit podcast, we will be hearing from a dear friend and mentor of mine, Rebecca Marcus. As an esteemed Licensed Clinal Social Worker, having received her master's degree from New York University Silver School of Social Work focusing on clinical practice and trauma, Rebecca is an expert in her field and a lifelong learner. I always turn to Rebecca whenever I feel frustrated with my own mindfulness practices; I turn to Rebecca to bring in a voice of acceptance, clarity, and compassion. We conveyed the notion that meditation is a practice that involves no judgment and being present. Dan Harris, the author of 10% Happier, writes that “meditation is not about feeling a certain way. It’s about feeling the way you feel.” Rebecca helps us understand this phenomenon while simultaneously sharing tools to ground ourselves in our minds and body, tuning into the present moment. Sit with us and stay tuned as Rebecca leads us in short and worthwhile mindfulness practice.
Sitting With Joy
This week on the SIt WIth Snit podcast, we will be sitting with my dear friend Izzy Sakhaie as we explore what joy means to us and how it plays its role in the Jewish holiday of Purim. Purim is usually my favorite holiday; the depth of revealing the hidden secrets within ourselves and the world always struck a chord with me. However, Purim last year was the benchmark that began this new phase of life called the "Pandemic" and it was when I closed a chapter of my life. Without knowing it, Purim 2020 would be the last time I would see many of my close friends for the foreseeable future and my former Upper West Side lifestyle for sunny Miami. It brings up a lot for me and Izzy and I are excited to make space for us to discuss the meaning of this holiday, what joy is, and how we can distinguish doubt within ourselves. So, are you ready to sit with joy?
Sitting With Courage
On this week's episode of the Sit With Snit podcast, we will be sitting with Alex Abel Segal, Editor-in-Chief and Founder of Chai On Life magazine, an online publication for the passionate Jewish woman. Alex holds editorial experience in publications such as Seventeen Magazine to StyleWatch & People. For the young professional who aims to live the quintessential Manhattan experience, Alex is your ideal mentor. What made me respect Alex, even more was how she embraced her innate desire to connect to her spiritual identity, which is no easy task. Putting the glamorous and independent city lifestyle on hold, Alex would soon find herself in Israel. There, she met her husband and shortly after moved across the world to Moscow, Russia, where she would later live and start her family. Rather than divorcing herself from her past and her G-d given talents, she elevated them. By creating a means where Jewish women can share their experiences, show up as thought leaders, and ultimately inspire others alike, Chai on Life was born. So if you've been sitting on an idea for far too long or feel that maybe it's just a passion project, look no further. So, are you ready to sit with courage?
Sitting With Diet Culture
On this week's episode of the Sit With Snit podcast, we will be sitting with Sami Sage, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Betches Media. Host for The Betches Sup, Morning Announcements, and Diet Starts Tomorrow podcasts. We decided to transition our Instagram DM relationship behind the mic for a meaningful discussion, one surrounding a phenomenon in our society that hits home for both of us. Dieting is very common in American culture. Almost half of all Americans have tried to lose weight in the past 12 months (the rate is higher among women), studies show. Diet culture focuses on body image, claiming one will be happier if they are thinner, often setting impossible or unattainable goals. Hardly anyone speaks about the aftermath of serving "perfection" on an unattainable platter (no pun intended.) Sami's bravery in sharing part of her story with us gives me the strength to start sharing mine. I'm ready to open the door from my past with love and acceptance; are you prepared to sit with snit?
Sitting With Transformation
We, as human beings, are ever-evolving creatures. We also happen to be creatures of habit; we like when things stay the same because, well, they are predictable. But, that sameness is the antithesis of why we are here. We are meant to elevate ourselves, level up always, and take our potential greatness into actuality. With that in mind, I present to you the new and re-branded Sit With Snit Podcast, where we will be elevating the physical, one topic at a time. On this mini-sode, you will hear about the trajectory of my own transformative experiences that have brought me to this exact moment, with you, on the other side of this podcast. So without further a do, are you ready to sit with transformation?
