    91. Healing Stronger From Heartache with Zara Marin Franks

    How can we heal stronger from heartache?

    Today’s guest is Zara Marin Franks, an energy healer, author and coach who helps women rediscover themselves and what they've lost after a breakup.

    In our conversation, we talk about the importance of sitting with our discomfort, finding the courage to be ourselves in relationships and beyond, the role of rituals in our healing journey, how we can incorporate breath work and more. Zara also talks about archetype embodiment — what it is and how we can use it to access those parts of ourselves that we’ve lost — and how to set intention through fire rituals.

    89. Aligning With Your Purpose and Getting Unstuck with Tanya Cole-Lesnick, LCSW

    89. Aligning With Your Purpose and Getting Unstuck with Tanya Cole-Lesnick, LCSW

    How are the patterns in our lives keeping us from achieving our goals?

    Tanya Cole-Lesnick has been a psychotherapist and coach since 1995. She received her master’s degree in social work from New York University after group therapy changed her life.

    In our conversation, we talk about the power of group therapy and how working in group can help us uncover so many hidden lessons about ourselves. We also discuss how we can get unstuck when working toward our goals, breaking through the generational patterns that have been embedded in us, and how we can get in alignment and stop getting in our own way.

    What role does mindset play in our career growth?

    This week, we are chatting with Cici Castelli, business leader, coach, and author of the new book, Mindset Unlocked. From the kitchens of Harvard to the beaches of Miami, Cici shares the powerful story of how she achieved her career dreams after arriving to the United States as a first-generation immigrant. She talks about the role of mindset in discovering your competitive career advantage, and how unlocking our mindset can help us become successful.

    87. How To Design Your Soulcation Life with Mel Miles

    87. How To Design Your Soulcation Life with Mel Miles

    Are we addicted to being "busy," and if so, how can we redesign our lives to feel wild and free again?

    This week, we are chatting with Mel Miles, international health expert and author of the book Soulcation: Design a Life You Don’t Need a Vacation From. After working at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and helping to launch the global effort to eradicate malaria, Mel found herself hospitalized from a panic attack. In her new book, she shares her healing journey and explores ways to take your life back in the midst of burnout and anxiety.

    In this episode, Mel shares how we can redesign our lives around the things we love to do on vacation. We talk about the differences between numbing rest and restorative rest, the power of creating a happy list, rewriting our limiting beliefs, and ways we can incorporate more pleasure and play into our daily rhythms. She shares a lot of practical tips throughout our conversation, so I encourage you to listen back to this episode again and take notes!

    86. Breaking Free From Generational Trauma with Ana Jones

    How can we start to live in emotional freedom?

    This week, we chat with Ana Jones, an emotional awakening coach who helps women break free from generational patterns in their lives. Through her practice, she holds space for women to reconnect with themselves and go into an expansive healing path.

We also talk in depth about generational trauma: what it is, how it affects our lives, and how we can move forward on a path toward healing. In addition, she shares an intro to Akashic Records, how trauma bonding plays into our relationships, and why we are each standing in our own way.

Empowering, kind and thoughtful

I found my podcast soulmate! If you value health, wellness and living life to the fullest, Valerie covers all this and more in her podcast. Valerie is open and authentic, empowering listeners in a thoughtful and nurturing way. I cannot recommend Wellness and Wanderlust highly enough.

Ash736252729403 ,

Such good empowering information!

Wow! This podcast is so amazing! I'm not the healthiest person, nor do I prioritize myself in any meaningful way but this makes me want to jump up and take ownership of my wellness!

hmichsmith ,

So refreshing and encouraging!

Valerie provides such a welcoming space to demystify and explore a wide range of topics about our health and well-being. I highly recommend!
