Seek The Joy Summer: The Role of Community this Summer with Phoebe Leona Plus a Summer Solstice Yoga Flow with Lea Isidora Onayan

Seek The Joy Summer: The Role of Community this Summer with Phoebe Leona Plus a Summer Solstice Yoga Flow with Lea Isidora Onayan

August 31, 2021

On the podcast today we’re sharing our final session from Seek The Joy Summer with Phoebe Leona, Founder of nOMad always at OM and Lea Isidora Onayan, 200-hr nOMad Teacher & Mvt109™ Facilitator.

In this session Phoebe shares her tips for bringing greater community into our lives this summer and how we can begin to translate our newfound digital communities into in-person communities.

We chat about the role community has played in Phoebe’s life, what she’s looking forward to the most this summer with her community, and how nOMad has created community and its impact.

Our session with Phoebe is an opportunity to reflect and remember that within life’s transitions is a beautiful opportunity for community. If you’re in a state of transition, especially as the world begins to open up again, trust and know that community will come from it, community will shift as a result of it, and when you step into community and connection it opens you up to greater possibilities.

After you tune in to our session with Phoebe head on over to our YouTube channel here to join us for a special Summer Solstice Yoga Flow with Lea.

To connect with Phoebe and nOMad here and on Facebook @nomadatom and their group the nOMad Collective here and Instagram @phoebeleona.love @nomadalwaysatom and check out her Joy Corner feature here and episode on Stories of Inspiring Joy here.

Reflections on Grief and Loss + Life Update (It’s a Solo Episode!)

Reflections on Grief and Loss + Life Update (It’s a Solo Episode!)

August 19, 2021

Sydney hops on the mic solo today to reflect on grief and loss and to share a life update. 

On August 1st Sydney's Grandma Pearl suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. She was this podcast's biggest fan and she never missed an episode.

When Sydney sat down with Christa Couture and Cat Peters back in June (two recent episodes on grief and loss) she had no idea that she would be embarking on another grief journey so soon after losing her Grandpa Milton in October 2020. 

In this episode Sydney shares her thoughts and reflections on grief, why remaining present has not only been challenging but also incredibly transformative and crucial, and what she's learned from her experience with grief and loss so far. Plus, Sydney shares more about her incredibly talented Grandma Pearl Kaufman. 

Our biggest takeaway from this episode? Remaining present with grief is challenging, but it allows us to learn so much about ourselves and just how capable we are of loving others and ourselves. 

We would love it if you checked out Pearl’s incredible talent and music on Spotify here and Apple Podcasts here. You can also check out a highlight reel of her show here and make sure to listen to Bumble Boogie and Rhapsody in Blue, those are Sydney's two favorite tracks (with Malaguena and Lara’s Theme in a close second!)
