Join me, Chiara, former corporate lawyer turned entrepreneur as I take a deep dive to discuss all things related to career transition, health + wellness, meditation, mindfulness, mindset, personal development, and spirituality.
Listen to inspiring conversations with thought leaders, experts, and regular-people-being-awesome (including me!) for tools, resources, and nuggets of wisdom .
We'll also explore what it looks like when the path towards greater meaning and purpose requires leaving your job or your chosen profession altogether.
You’ll hear from guests who made the leap including how and perhaps most importantly, WHY they did it.
If it will help you build a career + a life you love then we are digging into it on this show!
Join me as I explore these topics in a practical way to help you thrive no matter where you are in your journey!
Inner Wisdom, Connection + All Things Woo!
In this episode, I'm joined by Megan Smiley and we're chatting about our new workshop launching on May 31st!
The intention of the course is to teach the participants the basic tenets of various disciplines and how they can be used to increase self-awareness, build insight, and navigate personal + professional transitions. This is a primer of sorts for the woo-curious!
There will be five sessions and the topics covered include: meditation/intuition, astrology, human design, mediumship, and hypnotherapy.
Tune in to listen to Megan and I chat about our personal experiences and what led us to create this course!
Specifically we talk about:
Our paths to exploring various spiritual modalities Reconciling our "law brains" (aka left brains) and our spirituality Integrating and aligning the various parts of ourselves Meditation as a gateway drug The science behind meditation The scale of woo How various tools have helped us access our inner wisdom (rather than looking externally) The impact of the subconscious mind Laying down our inner skeptic Surrendering to the unknown
Workshop dates: May 31, June 7, 14, 21, 28 @ 5:30pm PST/ 8:30pm EST.
