    Ep. 62 - The Power to Heal Through Breath Work (w/ Ana Lilia)

    When was the last time you took a deep breath from the pit of your belly and let all the air out? Chances are, it's been a while. Breathing is the thing we do all the time and think about the least. But there's power in our breath - especially if we know how to harness it. In this episode, Ana Lilia introduces us to breath work, it's healing potential, and even shows us how we can get started from the comfort of our home. At a time like this, when all of us are collectively holding our breath waiting for some good news - nows the time to unite with our breath and give thanks for this gift.

    Ep. 59 - Processing Grief (w/ Dr. Lydiana Garcia)

    No one is ever prepared for death, and when it's a tragedy that seems to come out of nowhere it's even harder to process. Following the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and 7 others, we felt the need to talk about death, grief, and loss with Dr. Lydiana Garcia. She talks us through what these moments trigger in us and how we can process that pain and fear that emerges after these types of tragedies.

    Ep. 58 - You've Got to Show Yourself Grace (w/ Zoila Darton)

    Ep. 58 - You've Got to Show Yourself Grace (w/ Zoila Darton)

    There's no denying it – Zoila Darton is a force of nature. She is the founder of WORD, a creative agency based in L.A., which creates iconic events while fostering community. But while many may know Zoila the entrepreneur, this episode dives into the multi-faceted woman she truly is. In this conversation, Zoila gets candid about the reality of creative and professional burnout, the blessings and frustrations of motherhood, and how she's building a practice of "joyful discipline." (And honestly, so much more!) It's a convo that is inspiring, heartfelt and so damn honest. Life is amazing, but it's also messy and complicated, but you know what y'all - we're all in it together.

Finally! Real conversations!

I absolutely love this podcast! Jessica and Yarel create a space where the Latinx community feels comfortable to open up and talk about real life situations we can all relate to. They discuss issues many of us go through regularly and normalizing those feelings that we might feel are unacceptable to have and are hard on ourselves for them. We’re human, and they bring that humane approach to every topic they put on the table.

Awesome

This is an absolute thrill to listen to! Yarel and Jessica have found a nitch that allows them to talk about all topics. It’s really refreshing to hear two latinas talk about current issues.
