How our sexual energy can be used as an inspirational, creative life-force and how that energy can improve our health, wealth and over all well-being.
How we can harness this powerful sexual energy that we all have within us.
How to become aware of the sexual taboos that we have all been exposed to at some point in our life that deem us to be wrong, dirty or otherwise bad.
Why and how its important to cultivate an intimate, even sexual relationship with ourselves.
And why an intimate relationship with someone else is not required to tap into this sexual, creative energy!

If you could relive your camp days when you were a kid, would you? Would you do anything differently? Well… Here’s your chance! In this episode you’ll meet the founders of Soul Camp – a sleepaway camp for adults interested in expanding their soul and getting back to being a kid!
Before they were successful entrepreneurs Alison Leipzig and Michelle Goldblum went to the same sleepaway camp as kids. Now they’re joining forces with the leaders of the personal development and wellness world to create a unique, fun filled camp for adults to get back to colour wars, crafts and new lifelong friends. But this isn’t your typical yoga retreat or a self help seminar.
Meet Michelle Goldblum & Alison Leipzig
Soul Camp co-founders Michelle Goldblum and Alison Leipzig united to bring all of the things they loved together to create a completely transformative experience for both themselves and their communities. Going to sleepaway camp together as children, and now, both entrepreneurs in the health & wellness space, they saw that there lacked large-scale community experiences that were not only deep and healing, but fun and playful as well. They believe in the power of joy to change the world. And it happens, one camper at a time.

What do you do when you realize that you may have a hereditary cancer risk and your intent is to find out the keys to perfect wellness?

Kevin Gianni is joining us this week to talk about his adventures, learnings and rock bottoms that he had to hit before recognizing what works for him and his body despite what all the professionals say.
Meet Kevin Gianni
Kevin Gianni seriously started researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living, he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and self-published six books on natural health, diet, and fitness, produced over 900 YouTube videos with over 10 million views and has published hundreds of articles.
He’s experimented with many diets and medical protocols to differentiate myth from reality. Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best foods, medicines and clinics to introduce them to the readers of the blog he co-founded — RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world. (He’s now a contributor there.)
During that time, he and Annmarie co-founded Annmarie Skin Care, a natural, organic skin care and beauty company. He spends his time now keeping the wheels on this award-winning line as acting CEO.
Sometimes the media is interested in what he’s done. Either he or the Annmarie Skin Care products have been featured or interviewed by many media outlets including The New York Times, Huffington Post, the Style Channel, FOX News, Treehugger and Organic Spa Magazine.
He lives in Berkeley, California with his wife, Annmarie, two kids, two cats and a chicken.

What is the line between Religion and Spiritually? What does it mean to be Spiritual but not Religious? Deepak Chopra says that “all Religion was based on a Spiritual experience,” and if that is part of our evolution, it would explain the work of this week’s guest, Benjamin Shalva.
Ben is Jewish; he’s also a Rabbi; a Yogi; and a singer/songwriter. It’s what he calls “Spiritual Cross-Training.” This is available to each one of us, but only when we pause long enough to look for it. On a quest for enlightenment, Benjamin Shalva journeyed through the wilds of Tibet. Now, using the lessons and techniques gained through years of religious exploration and inward reflection, he offers simple and powerful ways to connect with your spiritual self, whether it be in a place of worship or the yoga studio.
Meet Benjamin Shalva
As a rabbi, writer, meditation teacher, and yoga instructor, Benjamin Shalva leads spiritual cross-training seminars and workshops around the world. He received his rabbinical ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City and his yoga teacher certification from the Yogic Physical Culture Academy in Los Cabos, Mexico. Shalva serves on the faculty of the Jewish Mindfulness Center of Washington and the 6th & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, DC, leads musical prayer services for Bet Mishpachah in Washington, DC, and spends his summers as the camp rabbi of Tamarack Camps in Michigan. His writings have been published in the Washington Post, Elephant Journal, and Spirituality & Health magazine. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he lives in Reston, Virginia, with his wife and their children.
