Episode 3: Kim Coleman - Pranayama and Self-Love as Keys to Freedom and Happiness

Kimberly Coleman is an intuitive Mind/Body Healer, holds many titles including Reiki Shihan, Master Massage Therapist, Yoga Teacher, and JourneyDance facilitator. She’s spent her life working hands-on with clients, helping them transform their lives through bodywork, energy healing, yoga, and breath work. 

In her search for joy Kimberly made an important discovery — that she couldn’t give away all her energy. The inner struggle of self-worth held her back and kept her from the life she wanted to lead. Even after she actively created a life she thought would be best, she was still unhappy.  

So she started to really investigate why she was unhappy on the inside, why life was always inadequate, and discovered when she looked deep inside, and decided to start loving herself — seriously filling herself up with the love and kindness that she usually gave away — things began to change. Stress decreased. Habits began to shift. People treated her differently. She could recognize and receive blessings that she’d never seen before.

We cover a lot of ground in this talk, from what is prana, how to recognize your own signals, how beliefs create energy that you can leverage, and what looking back 2 years might tell you about struggles you're having now. Toward the end, Kimberly takes me and Tricia through her LoveBubble process, which leaves us floating. 

Episode 2: Gael Chiarella Alba - An American Yoga and Energywork Pioneer

Gael is an encyclopedia of yoga who was there in NYC when it crossed the Atlantic in the 70s and got its first commercial foothold. She was on the spear’s tip for many American and international fitness and wellness movements. And she is now focused on how we can better take care of ourselves as caregivers as our parents age and die. Gael brings deep reassurance that with attention to energy and presence, all crises and challenges can serve connection and growth; it comes down to how you look at things. It takes work, but it’s the most important work you will do.

Episode 1: Overcoming Addictive Eating - When "Try Your Best" Doesn't Work

Sarah found herself in her 40s, a suburban mom lost in her kids, 60 lbs overweight, on 9 prescriptions, and was told by her doctor that there was nothing else they could do for her chronic pain.  She saw that food addiction was the persistent consistent thread across all her maladies and self-defeating behaviors, and there was no room for "try your best” - -she needed firm uncompromising structure and support. Today, she is thriving.  "What do I want to eat today?" has been replaced with "I commit my food..."  No more question; a plan.  She has built a robust and empowering accountability network that allows her to move with greater freedom through life, and with it has come community, clarity, structure, and freedom from food obsession.
