Episode 53

Talk is cheap

Published on: 16th March, 2022

We want to start this episode off with an invitation to join us in this conversation with curiosity and self compassion. Our topic today can evoke a lot of shame and self criticism. We feel like talking through this together can help make the biggest impact for our personal experiences and as a collective. This episode is a lot about Gossip.

This topic impacts women, specifically, and is a tool that separates us from each other as advocates for one another. Carissa shares a personal, and difficult experience. Looking at this situation can help us fully understand the detriment and pain that occurs from this behavior, as well as the long lasting consequences.

The Anatomy of Peace is a great book that was very helpful to help both of us make a sustainable behavioral change.

We discuss the importance of discernment, the chance we have to make these connecting moments rather than isolating ones, the contrast between our feminine conversations now, and the most helpful tool that made a big difference for us.

This podcast is a collection of conversations. Some of them are interviews, some are guided meditations and breath work, and a lot of them are just the two of us sitting down at the table to talk through our experiences and all the things we’ve learned. We discuss big and heavy topics like trauma, insecurities, body image. And although we might be discussing a weighty issue one moment, we will be laughing the next. We are not experts, we are not perfectionists. We are just two women on our own journey oh yeah, and we’re totally related! We hope to start the conversation with you and share resources, and we hope that you can totally relate too.
