Kim AnamiIn this week’s episode, Kim Anami shares with us:

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.

Bea Johnson

In this episode Bea Johnson and I discuss how to go from wanting to be a zero waste home to actually making it a reality. We chat about how we can turn one black dress into twenty-two different looks. Though we all may not decide to go “full” zero waste, Bea shares many big and small steps we can begin to take to reduce the amount of waste we generate everyday.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to hear an inspiring story of a modern, urban family who switched from “having all the things” to “having all the experiences.” It’s also great for anyone looking to learn about the big and small steps they can take to reduce their waste – in all its forms! In Zero Waste Home, Bea Johnson shares the story of how she simplified her life by reducing her waste.


Meet Bea Johnson

Since 2008, Bea Johnson and her family are dedicated to living a zero waste lifestyle; they produce a mere litre of waste per year. With her blog and bestseller Zero Waste Home (translated in 12 languages), Bea launched a global movement and continues to inspire a growing community to live simply and take a stance against needless waste with the application of her 5R’s: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot. She shatters misconceptions, proving that zero waste can not only be “stylish”, but also lead to significant health benefits, and time and money savings.

She speaks at universities, corporate events and conferences all over the globe (100+ speeches in 16 countries, 5 continents), and has completed three international tours. She has appeared on TV shows and in publications everywhere, from The Today Show to BBC Breakfast. Passionate and optimist, she has become a guru for many and is a spokesperson for the zero waste lifestyle or, as the New York Times stated, “The Priestess of Waste-Free Living”. She is a Grand Prize winner of The Green Awards, and a French native who currently lives in Mill Valley, California.

Kristin NeffThe pioneering researcher and author of Self-Compassion, Dr. Kristin Neff, is joining us this week and explains why its OK (and very important) to accept our faults and to be kind to ourselves.

While doing her post-doctoral work, Dr. Kristin Neff decided to conduct research on self-compassion, a central construct in Buddhist psychology and one that had not yet been examined empirically. She shows how self-compassion is important because research is showing over and over that it’s very strongly associated with less depression, less anxiety, more happiness, more optimism, more motivation to learn and try out new things, and it’s a very powerful way of relating to ourselves and the world around us.


Meet Dr. Kristin Neff

Kristin Neff is currently an Associate Professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Texas at Austin. She is a pioneer in the field of self-compassion research, conducting the first empirical studies on self-compassion over a decade ago. In addition to writing numerous academic articles and book chapters on the topic, she is author of the book “Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself,” released by William Morrow, and the 6 CD audio set called “Self-Compassion Step by Step,” released by Sounds True.  In conjunction with her colleague Dr. Chris Germer, she has developed an empirically supported eight-week training program called Mindful Self-Compassion, and offers workshops on self-compassion worldwide.  Kristin is also featured in the bestselling book and award-winning documentary The Horse Boy, which chronicles her family’s journey to Mongolia where they trekked on horseback to find healing for her autistic son.

Soul CampIf 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.

Benjamin ShalvaWhat 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.
