    EP-80 How to Practice Spirituality 💜🌙🧘🏽‍♀️✨ & Relaxation in a Twisted World 😌🔮🍀💜🌙🧘🏽‍♀️✨

    EP-80 How to Practice Spirituality 💜🌙🧘🏽‍♀️✨ & Relaxation in a Twisted World 😌🔮🍀💜🌙🧘🏽‍♀️✨

    Consider this a very non-bias and non-religious way to open your heart and mind to practicing a new art. Spirituality is a personal and open-minded non judgement based, no rules practice. It's believing in kindness, the light, the human spirit, nature, relaxation time in the morning, breath work, being a good person, even when others are not kind to you. Especially when others are not kind to you. How can we also promote more minority women and women in our fields and keep being more realistic about wellness? Create your own Maui Ranch. Free practices, not selling products or scamming others, not being a s****y person, not praying on vulnerable people. Spirituality is celebrating all race, religion, creed, being open to other's beliefs. non judgement - and open heartedness, and loving on those who practice good deeds. Esp when poor and scammy behavior is so praised in this twisted world, we can do our part to praise the light, the good and the kind. Those who look for nothing in return. Lest we forget - reward more minority women - pay them what they are worth -- hire more minorities, give more good people great opportunities! We must practice rewarding good behavior too & continue to do things that Grandma would be proud of, while using your brain. xx ck

In awe of this podcast and Candice’s wisdom and poise

I am in complete awe of the wisdom that is shared in these podcast episodes and so it has been difficult trying to put so much praise and admiration into one small review. Kind of a backstory but I bought Kintsugi Wellness last summer after having lost two maternal grandmothers within a few months of each other and also after the love of my life abandoned the relationship suddenly and with almost no explanation at all. To say I was devastated and in anguish was an understatement. When I recommend Kintsugi to my friends and family I say it was life changing. I mean literally I think it saved me from a very dark and broken place. The book is what brought me to this podcast show. So from the bottom of my heart I’d like to thank Candice for sharing her gifts with the world, I appreciate all that she has to say more than I will ever be able to express. I now also share these episodes with so many people! Cannot recommend her work enough. If I could give this pod higher than a 5 star rating I would.
