Show Notes

Ep. 23: I wanted to share a bit of a personal update, as my past few months have been chock full of challenges, lessons, magic, darkness... and everything in between.  

On this solo episode, I dive into my own personal "dark night" (or as I like to say, total emotional unraveling  over this past month in Mexico 😆), sitting with massive discomfort and surrendering to growth, my real experience of Tulum (hint: it's not what you see on Instagram) and basically getting my ass humbled AF in the final stretch of 2020 ;)  

Some topics I cover include: 

  • The process of grounding after a nomadic lifestyle 
  • Why self-centeredness is not a bad thing 
  • What we *think* we need is often not what we *really* need 
  • What is a "dark night" of the soul, and how to work with and through it 
  • My authentic challenges and experiences moving to Mexico 
  • The polarity of massive challenge and big magic 
  • Why we need to be triggered to shake us out of our comfort zone and grow 
  • Surrendering into darkness to find the light 
  • The energy of vortex places on the planet and how they impact us 
  • Learning to make courageous and graceful pivots towards our true path 
  • Listening to the call of your heart and purpose 
  • Embodying our true purpose: to FEEL the full spectrum of emotions 
  • ....and more :)
