    Episode 125 : Holy Disruption

    Episode 125 : Holy Disruption

    I hope you are ready, because this Trailercast conversation is fire! We jump right in, and I’m so glad you get to listen in on this important work. I’m still reeling from how incredible it was to watch this amazing woman step into her power and strength.  In this conversation, we talk about our stories of origin and the way that we often choose the familiar story, though it often no longer serves us. We talk about how to restore those core beliefs. How to choose the counter narrative. How to learn where we need to step out of the old story, or someone else’s story, and into our own. How to recognize what is not ours to carry in the first place.
    In this episode you get to listen in as my friend embarks on the heroine’s journey. A shared journey. As you listen in, my hope is that you can find yourself somewhere in her story, and know that healing can be yours. You too, are on a hero or heroine’s journey. The time is now.

    Episode 124: A Conversation with Jessie

    Episode 124: A Conversation with Jessie

    One of my very favorite things about these Trailercast conversations is the opportunity to really get to know listeners. The opportunity to hear from you; to hand you the mic and see where the conversation leads. It is always a thrill to unpack your stories, and always leaves me with an immense feeling of gratitude and awe.
    In this episode you get to meet Jessie, and I just loved talking to her. We dive right into her story, beginning with a cancer diagnosis in high school. We talk about survival and healing and love. We talk about being a part of something bigger than ourselves and experiences where our stories cross and intersect with the divine. We touch on what is happening in her life now: on teaching and learning and living through this pandemic. We talk about her journey with trying to have a baby, and the truth that we are not alone on whatever path we find ourselves on.
    Enjoy.

    Episode 123: If You Want a Garden...

    Episode 123: If You Want a Garden...

    If you follow me on Instagram, you may have see that my family and I have moved. We have moved out of the house that my husband has literally lived his whole life in, and that I have lived in longer than any other space. In this process of moving, we’ve found ourselves in the process of demo and reconstruction. And because as you know, I love a metaphor, it’s given me a lot to think about and process through. And because I’ve been banned from the inside of the house as the real contractors do their thing and don’t need me in the way, I’ve been working in yard pretending to be a master gardener. So much beauty and metaphor have come out of this garden work, and I am honored to share it with you.

    Episode 122 - Interview with Brit Barron aka my friend "Beans".

    Episode 122 - Interview with Brit Barron aka my friend "Beans".

    In this episode of Trailercast I get to sit down and talk to my good friend Brit Barron. Brit is an author, speaker, pastor, anti-racist educator and her first book Worth It is out now! Brit grew up in an Evangelical megachurch in the '90s, trying to fit neatly inside the boundaries her church and its narrow view of God had placed around her. She was boxed in by her fears, unable to realize her full potential. All that changed when she met a girl named Sami, fell in love, and chose to leave behind those narrow boundaries in favor of a fuller and more vibrant life.

    In Worth It, Brit tells her story to inspire all of us to overcome our own fears--the kinds of fears that keep us from evolving beyond the narratives that have been handed to us by others. We can't avoid or outrun these fears, but if we face them, we'll find out that it was so worth it.

    In this episode of Trailercast, you get to hear a sneak peak into Chapter 7, and listen in to us discuss the way that our lives intersected in such a way that brought us all more fullness and deeper freedom.

    121 - Interview with Kayla Huszar

    121 - Interview with Kayla Huszar

    In this episode of Trailercast, I sit down with Kayla Huszar, and we talk all things motherhood. Raw, unscripted motherhood. Or, as Kayla so perfectly calls it, the motherload. The load is heavy. And Beautiful. And hard. And fun. And all the things in-between. Kayla, a mom of two young kiddos herself,  offers postpartum support and expressive art therapy for moms. We talk about her work, the about the stories we tell ourselves surrounding motherhood, and how we can reframe being a mom in the light of being a human.

    Even if you are not a mom yourself, I think you’ll benefit from this conversation when you consider your relationship with your own mom. We all have work to do around motherhood. My hope is that you leave this episode and conversation with Kayla feeling like I did… lighter and more at peace.

    You can find Kayla at her website, https://www.kaylahuszar.com/ or on Instagram at kayla.huszar

    120 - A Conversation with Stu

    120 - A Conversation with Stu

    This episode of Trailercast is a special one, because not only do I sit down and talk with the first male guest we’ve had in this new series of conversations, but also a dear friend of mine. In this episode you get to meet my friend, Stu. Stu and I have built a foundation of trust and honesty over the years, and that helps organically lead this conversation into more raw and vulnerable spaces as we talk about what this season of COVID has been like for him.

    Listen in as we talk about how quarantine has affected his drive, his ideas around success, and what it looks like to give yourself grace, possibly for the first time in your life. Listen to a human being, being himself and in doing so, granting us permission to be ourselves too. Discover through this conversation that we can sit in discomfort, and still be okay. Witness honest, heart-to-heart work happening in real time.

    Rainer Maria Rilke said “Love the questions in themselves,” and we dig into that idea in this conversation. The truth is, we as humans live in a space that is not always buttoned up or put together. But that is where the good stuff is. Those times where we resist or want to shut the door, but we stay and allow ourselves to be witnessed a little longer, those are the moments where love is let in. Enjoy this conversation between me and my friend, and reflect on where you find yourself in his story.

Beauty, Hope and Inspiration

I love this podcast for a number of reasons. 1. Elyse speaks, interacts with others and communicates with such deep beauty. There have been so many time when I am listening that I have to pause the podcast to jot something down because I want to have it for later. I want to go back to it and think about just that one point or thought even more.
2. Hope, The Trailercast brings me hope in humanity, in our connection to others, in our ability to heal, in our own power and in the power of authenticity, love and radical freedom.
3. Inspiration- Which almost feels cheesy to say, but it is inspiring to witness the holding of space, the reckoning with difficulty and then the new understandings that take place.

My go-to podcast!!!

This is the most authentic and beautiful podcast and Elyse brings hope and joy and challenge to every episode. I feel like she is my therapist in my pocket and I consistently share this pod with anyone who asks me what I’m listening to and loving. Listen and you will feel like you’ve met a new best friend who is also the most wise and caring person you know!
