Casey Rose Frank is a proud book-nerd, freelance writer, cat mom, board member for Ophelia's Place, Circles of Change warrior and all around sweetheart of a human being. I met Casey in my time at Cafe at 407 and was instantly drawn to her warm & bubbly persona as well as her ability to live and work as a freelancer and kick ass at it.
I wanted to have Casey on because I know how much writing has changed my own life, my connection to self & spirit, as well as the huge role it played in my body acceptance journey, and wanted to hear her own story.
In this episode Casey and I talk about her life-long connection to all things bookish, writing, self expression and mental health, Intuitive Eating & how both chosen and non-chosen dietary restrictions can play a part IF you're not still caught up in diet culture.
Haley Quinn is finally (wooh!) back for another segment of Relevant & Resonant, which is a once monthly segment where my media guru, Haley, and I have tangential chats about what is going on in the world, in the media and in our culture and how those events & situations relate to our health, body image, and healing.
In this installment, Haley and I dive into coping with all the "new year, new you" messages (especially for those of us who are really trying to heal), the very refreshing energy of this new year (for more on this year's energy go back and listen to episode 32!) and some of the powerful stuff going on in the media, and in the world for women (Hello, Me Too, Times Up and Oprah!!).
Jill Catherine is a speaker, dancer, author and movement warrior. In this down to earth conversation, Jill and I talk about movement as a path to freedom. Jill shares how expression has played a huge role in her recovery, as well as her journey to finding herself.
We talk about shifting from the 'exercise' mindset to the movement mindset; movement should feel good, body and soul.
In the final podcast of 2017, we dig into why your new years resolutions don't work, how shifting towards setting value and spirit-aligned intentions does, and how intuition and intention go hand in hand to keep your self care game strong.
New years holds a lot of power for us to create change with. And holds even more power as it is the year of the high priestess- a year for using our intuitions, honoring intentions, and surrendering to the ease, slow and flow instead of stacking to-do's and shoulds on our already full plates. This episode will help you reframe your mindset around the new year and motivate you to get dreamy & intentional for what you want in 2018.
