    Ep. 126 What’s Botox Got To Do With It?

    Ep. 126 What’s Botox Got To Do With It?

    It's natural and healthy to want to be as juicy and nature-plumped for as long as possible. But something may be lurking in the shadows of the beauty industry - Botox and its effects on your emotional and social regulation system. Just how far are we willing to go to keep that eternal plump of youth? What are we willing to sacrifice? Here Katie speaks openly about natural living fundamentalism, embodied cognition, our social nervous system and what all of this has to do with Botox injections.   
    P.S. This is a NO-JUDGMENT zone over here at Shakti School. We 100% support a woman’s right to make her own beauty decisions and support our Botoxed Beauties as much as anyone. In fact, thousands of years of history show us that women will go to great lengths to beautify themselves. And while beautification methodology is very much a personal choice, women deserve to be educated on the effects of Botox on their social nervous system. So whether you are a Botox-queen or a natural-only mama, let’s release judgment and dive in deep in this not-to-be-missed pod.

    In this episode you’ll hear: 
     
    ~ The idea of embodied cognition 
    ~ The importance of our social nervous system and the ventral vagal complex
    ~ What natural living fundamentalism is and how it relates to wellness culture (p.s. We love a Vitamix ;))
    ~ The importance of our micro musculatures for regulating mood states
    ~ How botox can not only affect the way other people perceive your emotions, but also impact the emotional experience of the person who had the injection

Nibodhi ,

Para Shakti

Namate. Sri Katie and her podcasts The Ghee Spot and Spirit Sessions are absolutely my favorite podcast on air. She brings authentic heart based living wisdom to the listener. It is not just for Shakti's (Females). The living wisdom Katie offers is applicable to everyone, of every gender, orientation, religion or region. Truth is Truth.
Om Parashaktyai Namah Om Sri Devyai Namah Om IcchaShakti JnanaShakti KriyaShakti Svarupinyai Namah. Koti Pranmas

Abuse

She’s a fake. Multiple students, former employees and teachers who have taught in her program have come forward with stories of abuse and unethical behavior. Look elsewhere.

All the Love 💕

One of my absolute favorite podcasts. Katie is a delight and deep well of wisdom. I can’t believe how much I learn every single episode- I always feel more connected to myself, others, and source after listening. It’s healing balm for my soul, and always gets me more excited about life again.
