Josh Trent - Who Am I Really?

EMy good friend Josh Trent, CEO of @wellnessforce has joined me this week to discuss his journey home to truth. Josh started out much like myself in jobs, roles and spaces that did not align with his true inner being. His awakening started with health and wellness, but then became so much more. Josh explains a series of reckonings to be real that pulled him toward alignment, as well as the continuous process of expanding, letting go and coming closer to your true self. As Josh explains, the truth is hidden in plain sight and we can all find it by looking within. Learn more about Josh and Wellness Force here! Josh Trent is the Founder of Wellness Force Media and host of the Wellness Force Radio Podcast. Josh has spent the past 16 years as a trainer, researcher, and facilitator discovering the physical and emotional intelligence for humans to thrive in our modern world.

Josh Trent - Who Am I Really?

Adulting is Hard

EThis week I share more about Ky and I’s breakup and a closing ceremony we did for our relationship. I share about my process. Wow. I’m not gonna lie… this week was a tough one to do. I get emotional, I stay open. I discuss what it means to “adult”. How to navigate life’s pains and how to build trust again in oneself rather than making other people the authority on your life. No one knows you better than you. Enjoy this episode and grab a few Kleenex… not for you, but for me. :)

Relationship Endings Aren't Failures - Special Episode

EMaya Angelou famously said that ‘love liberates, it doesn’t bind’. My relationship coming to a close is not a failing, a giving up, or a problem to be solved. In this episode I want to refocus on what is important - the victory isn’t the relationship lasting - the victory is in the process of who you become along the way. And through this process I have been fully liberated, to being all of myself, to loving, and to living all out with no holds barred. This is exactly the delicious, messy, complex journey that I love, that is life. After spending some time connecting to the universe and self, I am surrendering to letting life move through me, I am turning towards it all. I hope that this episode will invite you to do the same.

Hilary Jacobs Hendel - Why You Can’t Just “Get Over It”

EEvery single human has surely suffered with feeling invalidated for their emotions. Author of ’It’s Not Always Depression’ and psychotherapist, Hilary Jacobs Hendel joined us to explore her ground-breaking work on emotions. Many of us have never really learned the true anatomy of our emotions. As Hilary explains, we can build our lives around avoiding the true feeling of our emotions. For many of us our early experiences with emotions involved us being told to ‘get over it’ in one way or another. Fully embracing emotions like anger and hurt means going against our conditioning, and some of these emotions seem downright scary. Could we end up lashing out in rage? Or could embracing our pain actually open the pathway toward calm, composure and compassion? Hilary walks us through the model she uses that allows people to experience - often for the first time in their lives - how to fully feel a feeling, and the freedom that this experiences offers us. 1.30 mins - Introduction to th...

Dr. Kelly Brogan - End The War Against Yourself

EThis game-changing episode will entirely change the way you look at mental health. Dr Kelly Brogan is a psychiatrist and a New York Times bestselling author who has walked the path of integrative and holistic health. While being trained as a psychiatrist, Dr Brogan was a staunch supporter of the pharmaceutical model for symptom suppression. After her own illness and resultant awakening, Dr Brogan entirely changed her clinical practice. Dr Brogan describes the “bait and switch” trap of the medical system, capturing highly sensitive people with medications that often turn situational pain into chronic illness. She argues that rather than suppressing our symptoms we can learn what they are here to teach us, we can see our vulnerability as a gift rather than a curse. Far from being trapped, we are emerging into a zeitgeist of reparenting and unconditional love for self. Dr Brogan describes the joy of liberation from darkness and the power in self care. We can all liberate ourselves to...
