We’re Only Human

Hello hello! Today’s podcast is a big one. My trip to Tokyo plus an apartment move created a HUGE disruption in my routines the last few weeks. I was feeling pretty angry at myself for not sticking with my meditation and movement routines, and it made me think of a favorite quote from a book by by Chogyam Tronpa Rinpoche called “Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior.”  

 

He says – “there’s no embarrassment in being human.” This got me thinking….am I embarrassed to be human?

 

Today’s podcast is an investigation into embarrassment at being human, basic goodness, and overcoming deep fears.

Green Beauty and Authenticity with Professional Makeup Artist Ky Washington

ky washington green beauty
I am SO excited to introduce you all to Ky Washington, founder of Modern Green Goddess. Ky is an amazing professional makeup artist who uses exclusively green/non-toxic makeup products.

In today’s episode, we talk about her transition from regular to green make-up products, including how she decided to stand up for her beliefs regarding the importance of green beauty. Plus, we talked about the power of intention, why makeup is about more than just looking pretty, and how you can make the switch to green beauty products.

Moon Chat: Reframing Mercury Retrograde

Today on the podcast we have Kathleen Barry back to talk about Mercury Retrograde!

I know – it’s everyone’s favorite astrological phenomenon (or at least the one we hear about the most), but in this podcast, we’re going to do a deep dive in Mercury Retrograde to understand how it can be a catalyst for self-discovery, boundaries, and rebalancing in our crazy, tech-obsessed world.

This conversation, while wonderful, is imperfect – our tech, unsurprisingly, wasn’t working wonderfully, so you might miss a few words throughout the podcast. No fear – you’ll still get some amazing ideas and practices from the podcast.

Intermittent Fasting based on your Ayurvedic Dosha

Intermittent fasting has been all the rage in health and wellness in the last few years, but did you know that forms of intermittent fasting have been part of ancient medical traditions for thousands of years?

In Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine and sister science to yoga, the digestive system is the most important organ system for wellness and vitality. For the past 5,000 plus years, Ayurveda has recommended a 12-hour window of fasting every day to promote the steady release of toxins from the body and the proper regeneration of the body’s energy and digestive power every day.

Nicole Lanteri: Work/Life Balance (or lack thereof) and using your gifts

nicole lanteri interior decorator

I am SO grateful for this conversation with Interior Decorator Nicole Lanteri.

Nicole is an amazing creative and business woman. She started her interior design business 10 years ago when she realized that being a lawyer wasn’t using her gifts and energy to the best of her ability. I’m so glad that she made that change, because she now brings a wealth of kindness, empathy, and a brilliant design eye to her client’s homes. I often think that Nicole has so many clients because you just want to hang out with her, and after this conversation, I know that many of you will want to hang out with her too.

Overcoming fear to begin with the end in mind and stay present in the middle

When exploring Stephen Covey’s first habit of Highly Effect People, I realized just how hard it can be to set real, meaningful goals and commit to acting on them.

Covey’s first habit is worded “begin with the end in mind.” He’s saying when we look at our end goal and name where we want to be, we can use that ending to direct our actions and decisions in the present.

Stephen Covey wasn’t the first to think that this was an important habit to live by. In Stoic philosophy, momento mori (“remember death”), is a keystone habit espoused by Socrates, Marcus Aurelius, and Seneca.
