A podcast made to inspire authentic expression through snippets of life and conversations. Joined weekly by inspiring women who rock at expression, we hope to build a sense of community by discussing the good and bad of what it means to truly BE YOU.

"The Manifestation Session"
Welcome to "THE MANIFESTATION SESSION" with Special Guest Kyra Evans!

"The Anniversary Session"
It's our anniversary!! One full year of expression, guests, hard and inspiring conversations.
We are so grateful for the journey we've been on this past year and for all of you have listened, connected with us and cheered us on.
Needless to say we are not the same people we were a year ago and yet, who we are at the core lives on.
This week we are chatting about where we were when we recorded that first episode and where we are today. We also got back to basics and talked about what expression means and why it is so important to express ourselves authentically and honestly to be the best version of ourselves we can be!
"The Struggle Session"
This week we are opening up about the struggle real life struggle the last few weeks have been.
This pandemic has taken so much from us and we are having a harder time than ever finding the motivation and joy in our everyday. Yet, we still feel the need to put on a happy face and find positivity, be grateful, and "keep pivoting". The truth is we are exhausted and simply cannot this week.
So instead, we are breaking down how we are letting go of the need to find the silver lining and instead sitting in the shit. The struggle and realizing that we can be both. Both exhausted and hopeful. Both Grateful and pissed off. Both devastated and excited for what's next.
Let's get real. Expression is about honesty, and honestly ...we are struggling.
"The RE-Birth Session"
Happy Easter Everyone!
When we get to this time of year the theme of ‘rebirth’ unfolds all around us. The snow melts, green things begin to grow, birds and baby animals abound, and we are once more reminded that the cycles of nature allow us to rethink how we approach our expression. Life is not some linear slog from point A to point B, it is a series of cycles that allow us the grace and permission to “try, try agin”. This time of year, and holiday, is about renewed life, resurrection, and the changes that come with spring. So how do we renew and/or revisit our expression this time of year?
This episode we talk about, and are inspired by, all “RE” words! The prefix re-, which means “back” or “again,” appears in hundreds of English vocabulary words, for example: reject, regenerate, resilience, and revert. This language reminds us to have a beginners mind, to see each day as a new opportunity to reinvent ourselves.
Welcome Spring! Be gentle, be curious, be kind!

"The Renovation Session"
This week we are chatting in detail about the emotional journey one may go through when going through a home renovation. Emma has always had "home decor" as a major form of her self expression. From watching her grandmother and then her mother own a small home decor shop in our community, to now owning her own online home decor shop.
Currently she is renovating her 1973 bungalow into the home of her dreams with her husband but the lessons and journey has been so much greater than what is going on between the walls.
When embarking on a renovation be prepared for the WHOLE journey. The incredible obstacles, the ups and downs ... (as well as the financial and marital stress).
But also be prepared for opportunities that allow you to express yourself through your physical space. Be prepared to make 100 decisions a day that feel small but all add up to the vision you have for your home, or for yourself.
*hint* the renovation has more to do with renovating ourselves than renovating our space.
This week we are releasing our first ever Expression Session DUO - Yes! That means we have two new products for you to purchase to help you express yourself through your home!
We have opened up our "Session Shop" and our home expression duo is the first up for grabs!

"The Written Session"
ALL her life, Amy (co-host of The Expression Sessions) has been "writing" books. Ghost books that no one would ever see. She wrote her life, her pain, her joy, her transformations...but never shared any of it. Secretly, she always wanted to be an "Author" but didn't know where to begin. To compound that, she subconsciously felt and assumed that her words, her stories, weren't "worthy". This is the trap, and the plight, of all of us who hide our light, passion, talent, and expression from the rest of the world. Afraid of being too much, misunderstood, or worse yet...actually SEEN. Our 'self-expression' sits in dusty bins in the corners of our basements. It's time to burn that dust!
In this podcast we talk about 'Written Expression' and a co-authorship opportunity that not allowed Amy the opportunity of a lifetime, but deepened her commitment to this form of self-expression. It is only the beginning.
The book, titled "5 Lessons Learned Through Motherhood", is a collaborative book project authored by 33 individual writers and produced by LeadHer Publishing. This means, there are perspectives from unique and varied women, sharing their personal experiences and stories with raw vulnerability. These are real people, sharing their real experiences, and it has the ability to connect with you on such a deep level because you will see yourself in their voices.
There is something magical about women linking arms and tackling big goals. 5 Lessons is a beautiful compilation and one that includes something for everyone.
