Creating the LOVE with Mark Groves

Alright alright, I know I say it all the time, but THIS episode rocked my socks.  Ahem, not to mention, it was rather vulnerable for me, because Mark cracked me right open, and called me out on some of MY patterns.  Whoa.  Mark, is magnificent, and if you're looking to cultivate meaningful relationships in your life (which um... who isn't) this episode is 100% for you. 

What we discuss:

* How presence is imperative to creating love

* Flow states, and how to get there

* The truth about our evolutionary drives, vs.  what we want (aka reactivity)

* Why we are so disconnected, and how to reconnect

* When the time is right for creating the love

* Mr. /Miss "Right" Vs. Mr./Miss "Right Now"

* What are the blocks to LOVE and how we can get through it

SO SO SO MUCH MORE!

Paleo, Passion, and Purpose - Healing with Naomi Seifter

Naomi Seifter, has battled chronic, food-allergy-related illness since she was a child. Her search for a solution to improve her health led her to discover the beneficial effects of an allergen-free diet. Although she finally understood how to improve her eating habits, it was nearly impossible for her to eat anything that wasn’t prepared in her own kitchen.

To offer a solution, Naomi opened Picnik in 2013, an Austin-based food trailer in a repurposed shipping container. The concept was simple: wholesome food that’s convenient and nutritious. Picnik began serving gluten-free grab-and-go breakfast and lunch items, butter coffee, and bone broth, all with a focus on sourcing locally and using premium ingredients.

As one of the first paleo-friendly concepts in Austin, Picnik quickly gained a devoted following (especially for our grass-fed butter coffee), and in 2016, we opened our first brick-and-mortar restaurant. The following year, we hit grocery stores nationwide to share the goodness of our butter coffee recipes, and opened a second food trailer. Picnik continues to grow and impact the well-being of thousands of people.

What you're gonna hear:

*Understanding how food impacts your body and mind.

*Get to know vegetarian- vegan- paleo diets, and how to find what works for you!

*How getting off track, is indeed perfect whole and complete. It all unfolds as it should. 

*Why yoga is more than just a physical practice.

*Food allergies, and how to find if you suffer from them. 

*Books and tips to get you feeling fly, pronto. 

*Opening a on purpose business.

*Turning passion into reality.

This little lady was a joy to chat to, and I know you're gonna dig it.  So it's time to sit back, relax and get INformation.

Radical Self Love with the Magical Kelsey Grant

Wow wow wow WOW, Kelsey knows how to drop all sorts of truth bombs in a meaningful, beautiful, and digestible way!  We touch on all the goods, love: romantic, self, familial.  Breakups, woof, but we've all done it.  Self care. Self development.  Self expression, and so much more. 

Basically if you want to feel good, if you want to giggle and grow in the process, this episode is for you!

If we are unable to love ourselves, how can we possibly love anyone or anything else to the fullest potential of the human experience? Radical Self Love, developed by this powerful creature, is the journey of discovering and understanding the root and true essence of love. It is the process of learning to love yourself in the most on purpose way.

A trip to Kelsey Grant land is a most expressive adventure full of sparkles, rainbows, unicorns and some serious heart blasting, paradigm shifting, information and experiences. She doesn’t take life too seriously and encourages all  peeps to lighten up a little and enjoy this ride called life. There is a time to be serious and a time to play. Most of us are really good at being serious and need a little inspiration and reminder of what it means to play in these adult bodies, rock out a life on purpose and vibe in bliss as often as we possibly can.

Kelsey has a BA in Sociology, Gender and Sexuality. Has rocked extensive personal development and coaching training through Landmark Education, a current student of A Course in Miracles, an intuitive healer, has trained and completed courses with leaders such as Bob Proctor, Mary Morrissey, Abraham Hicks, Gabby Bernstein, Kyle Cease, Doreen Virtue, Brad Morris, Caroline Myss, Byron Katie, Wayne Dyer and countless others.

If you have a body, this is for you. With me, Alexa Silvaggio

So you have a body right?  We all have that privilege, and yet, most of us subscribe to the though that it's okay to berate our body, treat it kind of awfully, and well, beat it up.  This is no bueno, and has to stop ASAP. 

Why? Because our body is the only place we have to live permanently.  We came on to this planet with this body, and it will stay with us until we depart.  So let's cultivate a more loving relationship to it right now, shall we?  I've got you, I have tools for you, it starts now, so let's get INformation!
