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.

And why an intimate relationship with someone else is not required to tap into this sexual, creative energy!

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.

Maria Sirois 1Ever wonder how someone can be given everything in life yet still be miserable? What about those who are given nothing, yet live as though they have everything? Dr. Maria Sirois explains how resilience and how perceptions of a given situation plays a critical role in our over fulfillment of life. She shows us how we can develop resilience so we too can see the world through the lens of having everything even if we don’t.

We also talk about what Positive Psychology is and how it isn’t about seeing just unicorns and rainbows. But rather, how to cultivate resilience in the face of the storms of life. Living authentically and leading with our strengths is all conversation pieces in this week’s episode!

Meet Dr. Maria Sirois

Dr. Kelly BroganDr. Kelly Brogan says that a silent tragedy in the history of modern health care is happening right now in North America, but no one is talking about it. We have been told a story of depression: that it is caused by a chemical imbalance and cured by a chemical fix—a prescription.

More than 30 million of us take antidepressants, including one in seven women. Millions more—maybe you—are tempted to try them to end chronic, unyielding distress, irritability, and feeling emotionally flat—trapped by an exhausting, unshakable inner agitation.

It’s time to let go of this false narrative and take a fresh look at where science is leading us. It’s time to start understanding and listening to what depression is trying to tell is. What if we started seeing depression as an opportunity—as a sign for us to stop and figure out what’s causing our imbalance.

Dr. Brogan is here to help us understand what is really going on and has the science to back it up.

Enjoy with an open heart and mind and get ready to feel empowered!
