Today’s conversation highlights how the heartbreaking “no’s” we receive in life can take us in a better and more meaningful direction. Our guest is Sheri Salata, whose humor and wild spirit is infectious. After a twenty year career as the Executive Producer of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Sheri is now the author of The Beautiful No, co-host of The Sheri + Nancy Show, and co-founder of thepillarlife.com.

 

Our conversation begins with an emotional recounting of when Sheri’s brother passed away suddenly from a heart attack nine years ago. For years, she avoided processing her grief by immersing herself in work and caring for family. She shares the ways she was able to move through her grief by deepening her spirituality and making self-care a top priority every single day.

 

Sheri’s humor and honesty as she reflects on every single job she’s had, how each one has made her who she is today as an entrepreneur, and how the No’s ultimately gave her everything she needed to succeed, one lesson at a time. From managing a convenience store and a toy store, to working as a secretary. Sheri has started over and felt lost countless times, but kept searching for something to fill her with meaning. At age 35, she landed an entry level job at The Oprah Winfrey Show, and finally found what she was searching for—purpose.

 

We also talk about:

  • Using gratitude for your growth
  • Importance of dreaming and creating
  • Uplifting others, seeing their potential and verbalizing it
  • Being choosy about who you share your space with
  • Cherishing our bodies in a deliberate way

Peta explains what ancestral healing is and the work she does to help heal the painful experiences of her family’s past, like having open conversations with her husband. 

 

While in her twenties, Peta focused on soul growth, while working hard as an entrepreneur to set herself up financially before moving into motherhood. We discuss how she’s evolved spiritually since then, since writing her book, Earth is Hiring, and how her self-care rituals, such as stepping off of social media and Cacao ceremonies, have changed since becoming a mom.

Our relationship with Mother Earth, and the need for even the smallest of actions to protect her, is our focus in today’s podcast with Ayana Young. She is the founder of the nonprofit For The Wild which now encompasses the 1 Million Redwoods reforestation project, For the Wild podcast, and a new spinoff series birthed from a preservation campaign around the Tongass National Forest. Ayana’s journey as an advocate and protector of our Earth began when she was studying Ecology at Columbia University.  She eventually dropped out to become a full time political organizer. She intertwined the environmental concerns with the “Occupy Wall Street” movement to bring awareness to the decline of our planet’s health.

 

Ayana’s passion comes through as she illustrates how we are connected to everything; our modern lives are directly related to taking resources from the planet and not reciprocating. She explains the detriments of logging and building dams and howgold mining has created genocide in the west by producing high volumes of waste water. She urges us to invest in our local communities, and to educate ourselves and become more aware of climate change even when it’s overwhelming and heartbreaking. Ayana shares how she recommits herself to the Earth every day, and how each of us can reestablish that connection.

 

We also talk about:

  • The politics behind forest fires
  • What organic really means
  • Funding of scientific studies

This episode if for anyone who has ever felt disconnected from their body and intuition, for anyone navigating life after betrayal and for anyone wanting to forgive others and themselves. This is an intimate conversation on relationships, trust, listening to your physical and emotional bodies. Joining us is physical therapist Dr. Jen Esquer, founder of the The Mobility Method, known for relieving pain, preventing injury, and optimizing movement. Jen is all about affecting change in the body through education, movement, and building appreciation for what our unique bodies are capable of doing.

 

But we are honored to have Jen talk about more than mobility today. She opens up about her past relationship ending in infidelity, the way she handled the heartbreak, and how connected she became to her inner knowing. It really struck a chord with us when she discusses the importance of having friends that can hold a safe space, without judgment, to release the spectrum of emotions that may arise. We unpack the benefits of breathwork and the effect it can have on your parasympathetic nervous system.  For example, it allows one to release emotions so they don’t stay trapped. Jen gives a generous tool box if we ever lose ourselves in someone or a situation and want to reconnect with who we really are.

 

We also talk about:

  • Knowing when to leave and when to work on a relationship
  • How our triggers may affect other people
  • Finding forgiveness for yourself
  • Expectations versus reality (when someone shows you who they are, believe them!) 
  • Understanding pain, mobility, and breath

Today we are sitting down with Catt Sadler, the three-time Emmy-winning journalist, previous host on E!, and host of the podcast NAKED with Catt Sadler.  We are incredibly inspired by Catt’s ability to be vulnerable and honest with us about her experience leaving the E! network to stand up for equal pay in December of 2017. Catt is a powerful voice for women, and has inspired so many to stand up for what they deserve. In this episode we delve into the struggles of being a woman in show business—the outer forces at play, how crucial it is to know your worth, and how to feel safe in your own skin when you’re in the spotlight. We also discuss what parenting is like in today’s digital age, especially with teenagers. Catt shares with us her experience with collaborative parenting after divorce, and how being a child of divorce directly affects her parenting style. This truly showcases the importance of consuming meaningful information, empowering one another, and trusting your inner knowing. 

 

We also talk about:

  • What parenting is like in today’s digital age (especially with teens!)
  • Cultivating a positive self-image when you’re in the spotlight
  • Staying true to yourself in the entertainment industry
  • What it means to stand in your truth
  • How Catt uses her platform to make a difference for women, at the risk of being blacklisted
  • The women who stood with Catt during her departure with E!

Today on the podcast we welcome Lindsay Mack, the creator of Soul Tarot, and host of the popular Tarot for the Wild Soul podcast. Soul Tarot is a reinterpretation and intentional utilization of the Tarot as a healing tool, assisting us in differentiating the noise of our brain from the truth of our soul. Soul Tarot is a fusion of Lindsay’s 23 years of experience reading and studying Tarot, her work with her mentor, Michelle Sinnette, her own healing journey through complex PTSD/chronic illness, and channeled wisdom from her Guides.

 

Through her regularly sold out workshops, retreats and online Tarot courses, Lindsay has had the profound honor of teaching Soul Tarot to thousands of people from all around the world. In our conversation with Lindsey, the three of us talk about the origins of Tarot, how Lindsay uses it in her day to day, and using Tarot for yourself as a tool in your own journey. Lindsay also shares her path of healing through PTSD and chronic illness, and how her spiritual side has helped her through these hardships.

 

We also talk about:

  • Feeling like she finally found her calling
  • How she found help in her darkest moments
