    Ep 017: Design Thinking / Owning Your Parts

    Ep 017: Design Thinking / Owning Your Parts

    In this unconventional episode, Hollis shares her journey of embracing her identity as a graphic designer, a title she was initially reluctant to accept despite her deep roots in the design world. She explains how design thinking influences her coaching approach, blending creative visualization and strategic planning to help clients achieve their goals.

    Hollis delves into the concept of parts work and offers valuable steps to acknowledge and embrace all facets of our identities, including those we've previously hidden or disowned. By tapping into our innate creativity and leveraging our inner designer, we can expand our possibilities and navigate life more authentically.

    Lunar Series No. 6 - June 2024

    June is a month of growth, exploration, and realigning our intentions. As we step into this month, the astrological forecast is looking quite promising.

    With the first lunation on June 6th being a New Moon in Gemini, we're diving into a realm of exploration, curiosity, and intellectual stimulation. With a lineup of planets in Gemini, including Venus and Jupiter, it's like a cosmic party inviting us to embrace our adventurous side and indulge in the beauty of our surroundings.

    We transition to the Full Moon in Capricorn on June 21st, right after the Summer Solstice. This Full Moon illuminates the balance between ambition and nurturing, urging us to reflect on our achievements and set strategic plans for the future. With Saturn in Pisces adding a realistic touch, we're encouraged to approach our goals with honesty and fluidity.

    Ep 016: Relationship Series - pt. 3 Communication

    Ep 016: Relationship Series - pt. 3 Communication

    In the third and final part of the Relationship Series, we’re diving into the cornerstone of relationships: communication.

    Whether it's navigating emotions of love and gratitude or challenges like frustration or grief, we all encounter moments where communication is key. But what do we do when we can’t find the words to express what we mean? What do we do when we are limited by our language? And how can we ultimately find and create spaces for genuine understanding and connection?

    In this episode, Hollis and Kimmy challenge the conventional notions of communication. What if we relieved ourselves of the pressure to always get it 'right'? What if we viewed communication as a shared act of creation, a collaborative process within relationships?

    The goal of this specific episode empower individuals to think of communication as a process and as a means to creatively and authentically express themselves with the intention of fostering stronger connections in your relationships.

    Lunar Series No. 5 - May 2024

    Lunar Series No. 5 - May 2024

    Whew! We are finally out of Eclipse season and everything is just looking pretty bright this May, not just with the lunations, but with the astrology in general. Our first lunation of this month is a New Moon in Taurus. Being the first post-Eclipse New Moon paired with a very fertile Taurus, we can think of this lunation as a true cleanse. And alchemical invitation to start anew.  

    This is followed by a Full Moon in Sagittarius. This is an especially golden time of the year that encourages an embrace of all things pleasurable and abundant. So much so that we are at risk of going a bit overboard. We’ll get into how we can embrace this expansion with intentionality and awareness to make the most of this beautiful moon.

    Ep 015: Relationship Series - pt. 2 Compromise

    Ep 015: Relationship Series - pt. 2 Compromise

    Compromise is more than just giving in; it's a form of adaptability and a demonstration of love. It's about sharing resources, not just material but emotional and mental as well, within a partnership. We can think about our compromises as a form of exploring non-attachment, letting go of some desires for the greater good of the relationship.  

    But how do you know when it's your ego getting in the way, or when it's a boundary you really need to hold onto? And what about the issue of the one-sided over-compromising and taking on too much? 

    In this episode, Hollis and Kimmy continue the Relationship Series by discussing the art of compromise. They’ll get into the ways in which we can navigate compromise without harboring resentment, and the importance of upholding integrity, values, and self confidence in the face of compromise. They offer insights and practical tips for finding a balance that works for both you and your relationships.

    Ep 014: Relationship Series - pt. 1 Commitment

    Ep 014: Relationship Series - pt. 1 Commitment

    We begin our Relationship Series with a conversation about commitment. Over the past few decades, commitment has earned a growing reputation for deprivation or the limiting of possibilities.

    Hollis and Kimmy challenge our narratives around commitment by reframing our commitments as a practice in courage, empowering individuals to navigate their relationships and placements in the world with clarity and authenticity. From mutual growth to realistic expectations, they unpack the nature of staying committed to another while, most importantly, remaining committed to oneself.

    Throughout the conversation, they explore the celebration of shared experiences, the importance of stability and security, and how we can stay aware of our tendencies to overcommit.
