I’M KASSATA BOLLMAN. 


TODAY MY GUEST IS JUNE MARISA KAEWSITH…ALSO KNOWN AS "JUMAKAE".


SHE JOINS US FROM LONG BEACH CALIFORNIA.


JUNE IS A “LIFE DOULA” SUPPORTING PEOPLE THROUGH SPEAKING, WORKSHOPS, RITUAL AND CEREMONY….


AND YOU CAN LISTEN TO JUNE’S WISDOM ON HER PODCAST…. WHICH IS CALLED “YOUR STORY MEDICINE”....


I’LL OPEN OUR CONVERSATION….BY ASKING YOU TO REACH INTO YOUR MEMORY….

HERE…. “HAVE YOU EATEN YET ?”....IS FOCUSED MORE ON THE GREETING…IT’S A CHECK-IN OF SORTS….

WE’RE TWO MINDS…. ABOUT TO TAKE A TRIP INTO YOUR LIFE….

SO THIS IS AN OPENING… FOR US TO CONNECT…THROUGH FOOD….


THIS CAN BE A MEAL FROM ANYTIME IN YOUR LIFE….THE HOPE IS WHATEVER MEAL YOU CHOOSE TO TALK ABOUT…. IS MEANINGFUL….THAT IT BRINGS UP A  MEMORY…..OR EMOTION….


ONE OF THE BEAUTIFUL PARTS OF A MEAL…HAPPENS LONG AFTER THE ACTUAL EVENT….THOSE MEMORIES CAN BE POWERFUL….AND WE LIKE TO HONOR AND EMBRACE THAT  CONCEPT HERE….JUNE I’LL LET YOU TAKE IT FROM HERE….



[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]










LIFE DOULA


AFTER SPENDING OVER A DECADE AS AN ARTIST AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZER YOU TRAVELED TO THAILAND…..AND STUDIED WITH A TRADITIONAL MIDWIFE TO LEARN THE BIRTHING WAYS OF YOUR ANCESTRAL LINEAGE….


THAT’S WHEN YOU REALIZED THE IMPORTANCE OF TREATING LIFE AS AN EVERYDAY CEREMONY…. THAT IS WORTH CELEBRATING UNTIL OUR LAST BREATH…..HENCE THE TERM LIFE DOULA….


THIS ALL SPARKED YOUR CALLING TO HELP PEOPLE REMEMBER THEIR PURPOSE ON THIS PLANET…….WHILE ALSO REFLECTING ON THE LEGACY THEY’RE HERE TO LEAVE BEHIND…. WHEN THEY EVENTUALLY BECOME AN ANCESTOR……


I LOVE THE TERM LIFE DOULA…..NO MATTER HOW CONNECTED WE ARE….I THINK THERE ARE DIFFERENT POINTS IN LIFE WHEN EVERY SINGLE PERSON NEEDS THIS REMINDER…..WE ALL GET OFF TRACK….DEAL WITH TOUGH TIMES….NAVIGATE DEATH….AND LIFE TRANSITIONS…...

SO I’D LOVE FOR YOU TO HELP US NOW IN THIS MOMENT…HOW CAN WE AS A COLLECTIVE ….TAP BACK INTO OUR PURPOSE ON THIS PLANET? 


PERHAPS FOR YOU THESE ACTIONS ARE SIMPLY INGRAINED IN YOUR DAILY LIFE NOW….BUT FOR THOSE OF US IN NEED OF THIS KNOWLEDGE….UNLOCKING YOUR WISDOM AND PERSPECTIVE…COULD BE LIFE CHANGING…



[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]



AND WHAT ARE SOME WAYS TO START THE JOURNEY OF REFLECTING ON OUR OWN LEGACY….I THINK SOMETIMES WE’RE LIVING LIFE…TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET….AND THE IDEA OF THINKING ABOUT OUR LEGACY... CAN FEEL INSURMOUNTABLE……



[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]

ADVICE

WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE THAT YOU'VE EVER BEEN GIVEN ?

[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]



TRUE

HOW DO YOU STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF WHILE NAVIGATING THE UPS AND DOWNS OF LIFE ?

[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]



TED TALK


HERE’S ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOMENTS FROM YOUR TED TALK, QUOTE:


“ASK YOURSELF IN MOMENTS OF DOUBT WHAT WOULD I SAY AS A FUTURE ANCESTOR ?…. BECAUSE AFTER ALL…. WE ARE THE ANCESTORS WE HAVE BEEN PRAYING TO RECONNECT WITH…”


CAN YOU PLEASE EXPAND ON THAT BEAUTIFUL THOUGHT ?


[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]



DEATH

DEATH IS A TOPIC THAT WE OFTEN AVOID OPENLY DISCUSSING IN OUR SOCIETY…BUT FOR YOU ….THAT IS NOT THE CASE….SO WE’RE GOING TO DIVE RIGHT IN ….

DO YOU HAVE ANY THOUGHTS, EMOTIONS OR INSIGHTS ABOUT DEATH…. FROM YOUR UPBRINGING….. OR LIVED EXPERIENCE…. THAT YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE?

[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]

SYNCHRONICITIES

HAVE THERE EVER BEEN ANY SIGNS OR SYNCHRONICITIES IN YOUR LIFE…. THAT GUIDED YOU IN SOME WAY  ?…IT COULD BE A CHANCE ENCOUNTER WITH A STRANGER….A CONVERSATION THAT LED TO AN OPPORTUNITY….THAT YOU COULD NOT HAVE ARRANGED….EVEN IF YOU TRIED….THERE’S A WIDE SPECTRUM HERE…..NOTHING IS OFF LIMITS…



[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]


TAKEAWAY


THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR WISDOM WITH US …


I BELIEVE THAT THE JOURNEY…. IS ALWAYS GREATER THAN THE DESTINATION. 


IT’S ON THE PATH THAT WE LEARN….EVOLVE AND….. ENCOUNTER LESSONS…. THAT SHAPE US…. INTO OUR BEST SELVES.


I ALWAYS LIKE ENDING…. BY ASKING…. IF THERE’S ANY TAKEAWAY THAT YOU’D LIKE TO LEAVE WITH LISTENERS…..THAT CAN POSITIVELY INFLUENCE THEIR LIVES.


IT COULD BE SOMETHING WE JUST DISCUSSED…. A LESSON YOU’VE LEARNED ON YOUR JOURNEY…. OR GENERAL LIFE ADVICE THAT YOU LIVE BY...


[[JUNE DISCUSSES]]
