“My Story – Know you are enough” – this episode will give you a run through of my life from being a child that tried to be perfect, to an accident that left me with a traumatic brain injury, to drugs for relief, to modeling to yoga to the realization that I am enough and perfection doesn’t exist. I will give you tools to realize that you too are enough.

Thisepisode will take you on a ride of how we beat ourselves up and how to notice and shift. Judge Toler talks about her unrelenting anxiety and how she has found a way to find balance and not let it run her life.

“The honoring and releasing of fear and anxiety.” Not all fear is created equal. Thank God we have fear as a primal response when in danger. But, how do we turn it off because 99% of our fear is exhausting and not necessary.

A conversation like none that you have ever heard from 2 Buddhist Monks about addiction. Sensei’s Chodo and Koshin bring humor and depth and experience to the subject that effects us all – addiction in an attempt to find comfort.

A conversation with Kate Northrup. Kate will talk to us about how being intimate with the body and it’s cycles can make us more productive in the world.

Joan has a unique and powerful way of conversing about a heavy subject in a lighthearted and profound way.
