We are Trésa and Ashlee, a mother-daughter duo we believe that every life experience presents itself to take us on a journey of expansion. A journey to wholeness. A journey to joy. We also believe that joy can overcome anything in this world if it is chosen.
Our goal is to help you navigate the light and the shadow by amplifying others' voices and sharing raw truths to encourage a shift in perspective. Our greatest teachers are those who have navigated the dark and are brave enough to share. This is the community of the Art of Joy. This is the journey to wholeness.
2021 Perspective on the New Year
Today we look at the new year through a different lens. What if instead. of setting a bunch of resolutions, we allow ourselves to be in sync with the seasons.
Expectations, seem to dwell under the foundation of everything we do in life. We are held to their impossible standards and unconsciously hold those we love to ours. Expectations we place on ourselves can become great benchmarks to achieve goals and find success, but when we project them onto others we become disappointed or dissatisfied in relationships.
Root and Ritual
Our conversation with Becca Piastrelli brought us the grounding and connection we didn't even know we needed. Her new book Root and Ritual drops November 16th. She breaks it into four chapters that focus on the following:
Reconnect with the land
Reclaim the gifts of your ancestors
Connecting to community
Returning to yourself
Break The Good Girl Myth
"By journeying through the Good Girl Myths and becoming more you, you will naturally case a ripple, a riot, a revolution within. You will come alive. You will create the radically new. You will bring about what the world needs instead of the good girl the world thinks it wants. And if that feels overwhelming, remember that you're not alone. You're weaving one vital thread in a larger tapestry of millions. We need all hands on deck."
Holy Sh!t We're Alive.
We are so excited to bring back Doug Cartwright to talk about his new bestselling book "Holy Sh!t We're Alive." Sometimes Life asks us to traverse the shadow side of the mountain. It can feel treacherous and scary. But when you summit and find the sun shining on your face after a journey like that, you evolve and find your true power.
Rising from The Good Girl Mentality
In this episode, we tackle the foreboding cultural identity of being a "Good Girl" and how that label can hold back our ability to tune in. We, as women, are intuitive beings and creative forces
the truth and light we all need
Trésa + Ashlee have such light and calming souls that seriously soothes me. Their vulnerability and openness to share personal grief, trials, and other struggles throughout life is so beautiful and raw. I love the perspectives of both of them, and the honesty they both discuss on various hard topics. It’s not easy putting yourself out there in front of thousands of listeners, but I am grateful they both have for the countless times they’ve helped me on processing emotions, and daily struggles. You two are incredible, and inspiring. Thank you Ashlee + Trésa.
This podcast is so soothing and uplifting! The messages always seem to come at the right time for me. Love these ladies!
Okay, is crying normal 😩? Asking for a friend😉
Wow. Wow. Wow.
I don’t even know where to begin. Each episode that I have listened to has helped me dig deeper into my journey of healing. Today I was brought to tears when I realized, that my 10-year-old (reflector) daughter has helped me become a chain breaker. Learning my daughters human design helped me understand her so much more. She literally magnifies and reflects the energy around her which has in turn made me look at myself as her parent and see the areas where I want to be a chain breaker. Thank you both for being such a light in this world ✨
