These bite-sized episodes are designed to fit perfectly into your busy schedule, offering quick yet powerful insights to brighten your week.

 Here are the takeaways...


  1. The Trap of Our Own Stories We've all been there, haven't we? Caught in the loop of our own narratives, feeling like we're treading water. In our latest episode, we dive deep into the common pitfall of getting stuck in our own stories. It's a topic that touches us all, and I'm here to help you navigate through it.
  2. Ever feel overwhelmed by your emotions? I've been there too. That's why I'm thrilled to share a transformative tool called the "feeler." This technique is a game-changer for processing emotions without getting tangled up in the drama of the story. It's about feeling it, acknowledging it, and moving forward.
  3. There is so much power of simply holding space In a heart-to-heart moment. There is partner A and partner B. 
    1. Partner A - shares the context (the story) for 30 seconds and then moves into feeling
    2. Partner B - holds space and can support Partner A in three ways:
      1. Affirming sounds like "mmmm"
      2. Say "There's so much love for that"
      3. Affirm with things like "I hear you"
