A few weeks ago, Lindsey + Krista had the pleasure of hosting a live conversation and Q+A with John Wineland, a transformational relationship expert, a spiritual intimacy teacher, and the guest on episode 96 + episode 97 of this show. John led the audience through a conversation about practicing the art of embodiment, intimate communication, and feeling for better relationships and a deeper connection in your love life.

 

And as always, #ALMOST30NATION was so open and vulnerable with their questions.  Questions answered touched on topics like intimacy and dating, the energetic dynamics of a relationship, sex, and so much more. (Of course, we’ll also be chatting all about it in the Secret Facebook Group!)

 

We discuss…

 

  • The 3 layers of sex: physical, emotional, & energetic
  • Masculine essence + sex
  • Yogic practices for strengthening your consciousness + turning your body into an invitation for love
  • Do you have a masculine or feminine energy? Maybe both?
  • Cultivating both your feminine + your masculine
  • You can have a conscious one night stand
  • How to live thriving, energized lives aligned with a deep purpose
  • Invaluable tools that evoke the best from your partners for years to come
  • How to reinvigorate relationships full of love, connection – and sex!
  • Training your nervous system to express what’s true at a deeper level

Alli Webb has managed to capture that lightning in a bottle with Drybar.  Alli has never let the fear of failure stop her from building a business. She has experienced exponential growth over the last 8 years because she filled a gap in the market at the perfect time.  105+ Drybar locations (doing 1.2 million blowouts every year), developing a hair care product line, writing a New York Times bestseller, and raising two incredible children.

We chat about…

 

  • Alli’s always-changing routine
  • The journey to creating Drybar (by way of house calls)
  • The ups + downs of running a business with your family
  • Accessible self-care

Carly Stein lives and breathes bees. She is a beekeeper herself, an advocate for saving the bees (and our food supply) through sustainable beekeeping, and the Founder + CEO of Beekeeper’s Naturals.

 

If you haven’t heard of it yet, Beekeeper’s Naturals is an incredible company with a simple purpose: to bring us the highest quality products from the hive and nurture a greater awareness for saving our bees.

  • Falling in love with beekeeping
  • The female-driven bee society
  • Why “organic” honey is actually extremely difficult to produce (even if it’s made on an organic farm)
  • Why we’re losing a disproportionate number of bees – and why that’s a HUGE problem!
  • All the bee products: propolis, pollen, honey, and royal jelly
  • Why Carly washes her face with honey

  • Building up the Beekeeper’s Naturals business
