A place where the raw, the unfiltered, the wild hearts gather to celebrate triumphs and hardships, learn from each other, grow together and break down a culture rooted in fear. We will talk, we will laugh and we will lean on each other about every day life experiences that we could all use a little support through and then we’ll bask in the wild magical beings that we are. Let's live life, explore the journey and talk about it. With laughter, humor, humility, ownership and love we can build stronger relationships and community. My philosophy is that by embracing the dark, we may just let in the light!

    From Childhood Abuse to Living Unbroken with Michael Anthony

    Episode Summary

    Michael Anthony is the author of the best-selling book Think Unbroken and is a coach, mentor, and advocate for adult survivors of child abuse.. Michael spends his time helping other survivors get out of “The Vortex” to become the hero of their own story and take their lives back. Michael hosts The Michael Unbroken podcast and blogs weekly at www.ThinkUnbroken.com  We take a deep dive into his life story of surviving childhood abuse and trauma into eventually thriving in adulthood with accountability and intention.  His story and mission are so compelling, I am so honored to share it with all of you.  He is now talking about his experience and mentoring survivors of child abuse to create profound change in this world.  We learn about what ‘Think Unbroken’ means to him and how he began a very deep healing process through accountability, as well as what he was willing to do to create the life that he now has.  We also touch on the profound invitation that COVID and “quarantine” has given us to drop into our personal abilities and on his open letters to America about racism in the midst of the Black Lives Matter movement where he highlights our society in relation to being proactive vs. reactive.  In the end, Michael leaves us with some wonderful words of wisdom about how to empower yourself in trauma work with a declaration of health and so much more!

    Episode Summary

    Dr. Peter Borten has been helping people achieve whole health for 20 years. He has degrees in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Classical Five Element Acupuncture and is a certified Qigong instructor.  Peter has written hundreds of articles on all aspects of wellness and created online courses in nutrition and pain management. He taught Daoist philosophy and Five Element theory at Lewis and Clark College and has worked as a clinic supervisor at National University of Natural Medicine and Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.  I am so thrilled to be sharing our powerful conversation that works to break down fear, provides practical information including how to support your immunity regarding the Coronavirus and empower your longterm health in the process! We start with understanding what viruses are and how they differ from bacteria. We really get into the most important ways to support your body-mind-spirit in immunity health that come from you and cost no money.  We also talk in depth about specific supplementation with vitamins and nutrients.  More specifically, we talk about what can support us in keeping the symptoms of the Coronavirus mild to moderate in the event that we contract it, putting less of a burden on our hospitals, while increasing herd immunity to help weaken the virus.  In all of healthcare, education is the foundation and Peter absolutely delivers on that today. Y’all I believe this information is going to be very important for the next period of time. I know I say this every time, but please share this with your communities.  The positive impact of information like this can go a very long way in keeping our communities strong and empowered.

    Quarantine Real Talk

    Quarantine Real Talk

    Episode Summary

    Today I decided to have candid conversations with several colleagues about their thoughts on the Coronavirus and Quarantine.  This comes in the fourth week of physical distancing.  I wanted to get a feel for how people were moving through their process, personally and professionally.  I just thought it might be good to be a little more informal and vulnerable and raw.  We get into the mental process of the changes, financial fears, explorations of types of grief we may encounter, the environmental impact of a worldwide shut down, acknowledging the need for change in a system that is not supporting it’s citizens, listening to mother nature and so much more.  I want to be clear, though, that these conversations are opinion-based.  Although we are all healthcare professionals, we are not siting studies or data.  We are expressing human experience and thoughts.  I invite you to be curious in your reactions so that you can continue to uncover your own truths in your process and thank you for joining in ours.

    The Language of Grief with Morgan Wade

    The Language of Grief with Morgan Wade

    Episode Summary

    I am talking today with Morgan Wade, a somatic therapist and hypnotherapist specializing in intimacy and embodiment. We are in unprecedented times with a global pandemic shifting life as we have known it.  I believe we are on the precipice of dropping deeper into a society based in community instead of currency and for that I am excited.  We are seeing how humanity is rising up to a global crisis and frankly I am proud, but we are also experiencing very real levels of collective grief pertaining to such dramatic change, as well as personal grief and loss from the virus itself.  I wanted to get to some real talk about grief for support and understanding. We will explore the language of grief that comes after the sudden loss of a person and how it can be an access point to raw vulnerability and spirit, how loss is human and moments of enlightenment can sometimes be found on a kitchen or bathroom floor and we also look at how grief can become our teacher.  We touch briefly on the stages of grief, but more so on the process of finding meaning in grief.  In the end, our conversation becomes a beautifully woven exploration of this earth  school ride that we are all on together, in community  in these human bodies and in our hearts.  As someone who had spent many years of my life in grief, this episode means the world to me.  I want to offer some support to the many people out there experiencing loss on any plane and to normalize the gravity of what they may be feeling.  I also want to offer support to the communities of those very same people so they might be able to hold space a little more without fear.  Morgan offers exquisite insights from all sides.

    Show Notes:



    * Our history – a kindred spirit connection

    * Morgan’s early relationship with grief

    * Grief is human and universal

    * We are all increasing each other’s bandwidth for holding discomfort

    * Grief as a direct access to raw vulnerability and spirit

    * The current layers of collective grief

    * Moments of enlightenment on the kitchen and bathroom floor

    * The gift of grief as a teacher

    * Our innate medical wisdom to boost immunity
