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!

    Awakening Your Life Force, A Look at my Pelvic Floor Workshop, Surf Lessons and the Power of Retreat.

    Awakening Your Life Force, A Look at my Pelvic Floor Workshop, Surf Lessons and the Power of Retreat.

    Episode Summary

    My guests today are four beautiful goddesses I had the pleasure of sharing retreat space with in Oahu, Hawaii in February 2020. We will begin with the retreat inspiration and organizer, Nancy Bell.  After we chat with her, we will talk with the other workshop leader, Deb Gleason, where she shares her workshop inspirations.  And then, Liv Ensign, a surprise last minute guest and my long time friend.  As you can imagine we get pretty lively in our convo as travel buddies and lovers of laughter.  Lastly we will hear from Ange Arbuckle, the host of the retreat in her beautiful space in Hawaii.  Every guest shares their transformations through this sacred time together, what retreat means to them and also how they experienced my retreat offerings of pelvic floor awakening, along with learning to surf for the first time ever!

    Show Notes:

    I am fresh off of participating in the expansive Exposure Retreat 2020 on the beautiful island of Oahu.  I brought my Awakening Your Life Force pelvic floor workshop that I couple with surf lessons, which support re-igniting to your supreme essence and divinity.  The workshop piece was a full day of meditations, visualizations, recalling your power, emotional cellular memory education and techniques and pelvic floor education and self-care techniques.  At the end of the day we all participated in a fun dynamic motion exercise class and then eventually got our surf lessons on.  We will be hearing from four of the seven women about their transformations through my workshop and surf lessons, but also about the sacred shifts they received throughout our time together.  We will find out how profound these shifts can be when women come together in full transparency, vulnerability and support of each other.  Let me tell you, it was one of the most profound experiences I’ve had in a retreat space.

    Thoughtful Conversations About Whiteness with Good Friends and Cats

    Thoughtful Conversations About Whiteness with Good Friends and Cats

    Episode Summary

    My guest today is the divine Devi Ward.  She is the Founder of the Institute of Authentic Tantra Education, is the host of the podcast Sex is Medicine, is an author and has been featured as a Tantra and Female Sexuality Expert in countless articles and over 30 different radio and television networks world-wide.  We will be exploring what it means to look at the white race in relation to racism, why it is uncomfortable for white people to talk about race and how we are mostly uninformed and uneducated when it comes to discussions about race, even with the best of intentions.  It is my hope to open up a conversation about this to normalize it so more conversations start happening, which will affect bigger change.  I want to bridge the taboo gap by sharing experiences and truths to help us all discover where we may have been misled or misplaced in our own upbringing or experience.  The cats are there because as Devi has said previously when engaging in these conversations, cats make everything better.

    Show Notes:

    This episode was the most vulnerable I’ve been and that is exactly what drives me to share it with the world.  We as white people need to push past those feelings of vulnerability in regard to race and seek out the very best ways that we can implement change in a system entrenched in extreme bias and privilege.  My guest shares very deep wounds as a result of racial trauma and I’m so grateful to her for opening up in such a public platform to share her experience with us about the very real impact it has had on her life.  Thank you for holding the space for her to put a voice to these wounds.  Please do check out the very valuable resources listed below.  I will tell you right not that since doing my own research for this interview I have had several conversations that have led to others discovering the importance of becoming educated and taking with their children early on.  I just returned from a powerful retreat experience where I offered my Awakening Your Life Force workshop and surfing lessons as a piece to the whole movement.  What we talked about most is how the reaction we may feel listening to another’s experience can be a very helpful tool as a mirror or reflection of ourselves to explore.  I encourage you to listen with an open mind and heart that is really willing to look past your personal experience and into the much deeper wound racism has inflicted on our entire culture.  



    * Our history, how we met

    * The system is broken

    * Receiving the message that I was defective, “If I would have been born 5 years earlier I would have been illegal”

    * Childhood education, deep-seeded beliefs

    * Exploring the belief that if you talk about race, you are racist

    * Color blindness and the destructive outcome in that school of thought

    * Dominant culture sets the values of that culture

    * Generational trauma of racism

    * Racial trauma, family trauma, growing up bi-racial in an affluent white neighborhood

    * The almost fatal result of the accumulative trauma of being a person of color in America

    * The danger of the binary assumption the a bad person is racist and a good person is not.

    * Racism if the air we breathe, it’s not personal

    * Test your implicit bias

    * Systemic barriers demonstrated in a bird cage analogy

    * The structure is a reflection of the mind, change starts within

    * Who is your dream guest and why?

    Premature, How Parental Intuition and HypnoBirthing Maintained a Sacred Birth Experience in the Fear-Based Birthing System of America

    Premature, How Parental Intuition and HypnoBirthing Maintained a Sacred Birth Experience in the Fear-Based Birthing System of America

    Episode Summary

    My guests today are the inspirational Heidi Schmidgall and Kristin Carver. They will be talking about how they successfully protected their birth and maintained it as a celebratory, sacred and spiritual occasion despite being surprised with an early term labor and birth, an experience where our conventional birthing system leans toward medical intervention. This important conversation is not just for parents, it’s for everyone.  We will begin to shed light on how we create our world through the way we support our birthing mothers and families. There’s definitely heart and humor in this beautifully woven story that unfolds.

    Show Notes:

    We will hear from a mother and father that were thrust into a fear and intervention based system when their waters broke at 34 weeks pregnant.  They will be talking about how they successfully protected their birth and maintained it as a celebratory, sacred and spiritual occasion.  I will be touching on the gravity of how we treat birth in this culture and how it creates, changes and shapes who we are as humans.  We’ll get a glimpse of their intimate birth journey where they remained the principal decision-makers in their birth.  We will also chat about the role their independent hypnobirthing class and preparation played and how they worked together in becoming a strong and unified family when being faced with surprising turns in their birth journey.

Love❤️ Love ❤️your podcasts! So very informative! Will continue to listen! You are such a multi talented woman!!

Lazulynne ,

Outstanding healer and host

Lori is raising the standard of care, quality, and integrity in birth, wellness, and empowering others. No matter the topic she breaches, this podcast will be profound...
Read on for more depth of my experience with Lori. While pregnant, I was encouraged to go see her for a Hypnobirthing course. I was initially skeptical of the term, but I was brought to tears of relief in the first five minutes of Lori explaining her why to the work she does. After being robbed of an empowering experience in the hospital through birth prep, I was relieved to have found Lori and the education she provides. Thanks to her, I was ready and excited to give birth, and when my daughter came five weeks early, I was able to utilize techniques she taught to remain calm while surrounded by fear-based language in the hospital. Lori came to the hospital to visit me, due to our unique experience, and guided me through practices that were used the very next day as I gave birth naturally to our kiddo (we were in the hospital for 6 days prior). After birth, Lori supported my whole body healing process, with various forms of body work. She validated and worked with me while the hospital said I was fine. She’s a real modern-day healer, the kind that our current state of the world needs.
We are so stoked that Lori Reising is hosting this podcast. Not only because she continues to empower and educate us, but because she is doing outstanding work in the world to make positive change for others. I know that anything she covers in this podcast will be well informed, challenge the status quo, and come with high intention and integrity. We support the wild heart revolution! ❤️
