Finding the Joy in Uncertainty with Vrin Rao

Finding the Joy in Uncertainty with Vrin Rao

April 27, 2021

Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday!

On the podcast today is Vrin Rao, an Enneagram Coach and Meditation Teacher.

Vrin works with women and those who identify with the female energy to build strong and healthy relationships with themselves and others. She does this by using the personality framework of the Enneagram which helps us to understand the lens our ego sees the world through.

In today’s episode we chat about:

  • Why we haven't been taught how to manage and sit in uncertainty, and the power of holding opposites

  • The connection between uncertainty, control, and compassion

  • Becoming more wholistic beings, the three centes of intelligence in the Enneagram, and how the Enneagram can help us navigate uncertainty

  • Reframing uncertainty as mystery

  • Why joy can come from uncertainty, Vrin's biggest dream, and so much more!

To connect with Vrin visit her website www.illuminate.nyc and on Instagram @illuminate.nyc you can find her Free Intention Setting Template here and coming soon! Enneagram Meditations: Get on the waitlist for this four week online course where we will be exploring the Enneagram energies through meditation, journaling, intention setting and prompts here

Lessons In Relationships and Our Inner Child with Veronica Grant

Lessons In Relationships and Our Inner Child with Veronica Grant

April 20, 2021

Today we're sharing our next episode in our series "Lessons In" with Veronica Grant. 

Veronica Grant is a Love + Life Coach, host of the popular Love Life Connection podcast, and believed deep work is the only way to deep love. She helps successful women who feel like they have it all except love, find it. 

Veronica Grant joins us to share a lesson she’s learned about working with our inner child to transform our relationship patterns. Through healing her relationship with her body and discovering her own innate worthiness, Veronica embarked on a journey back to herself through uncovering and healing her limiting beliefs, and ultimately connecting with her inner child. As Veronica shares, when we work with our inner child we’re able to connect the dots between a core childhood wound we experienced with our dating and relationship patterns, and when we heal that wound we no longer attract partners from that place. Veronica’s reflections, honesty, and vulnerability will leave you feeling inspired, and remind you that to find the deep love that we’re craving, we have to be willing to do the deep inner work.

To learn more about Veronica visit her website https://veronicagrant.com and on Instagram @Veronicaegrant Twitter @Veronicaegrant Facebook @Veronicaegrant1 and you can find 5 Steps To Ending Overwhelm and Anxiety In Love veronicagrant.com/workshop and The Love Life Connection Podcast: veronicagrant.com/podcast and discover what’s blocking you in love by taking her free quiz: veronicagrant.com/quiz

Celebrating Where Food Meets Feminism with Lindsay Gardner, Author of Why We Cook: Women on Food, Identity and Connection

Celebrating Where Food Meets Feminism with Lindsay Gardner, Author of Why We Cook: Women on Food, Identity and Connection

April 13, 2021

Happy #SeekTheJoy Tuesday!

On the podcast today is Lindsay Gardner, illustrator, artist and author of the new book, WHY WE COOK: Women On Food, Identity, and Connection.

Why We Cook highlights the voices of women in the culinary world, their varied perspectives and experiences, and is a beautiful celebration of where food meets feminism. Food has the power to connect us, and bring about greater empathy, compassion, and understanding. In many ways, Lindsay’s beautiful illustrations and writing serves to empower all women to reclaim their place in the kitchen.

In today’s episode Lindsay and I chat about:

  • The inspiration behind Why We Cook, Lindsay’s desire to share the perspectives and achievements of women in the culinary world that are often overlooked, and the questions that drove Lindsay’s research for the book.

  • The impact of COVID-19 on the food and restaurant industry, what we can learn from being in the kitchen, the power of food to connect us, and cooking as a form of storytelling.

  • Lindsay gives us a behind the scenes look at the first interview she did for the book, the conversation that surprised her the most, and we dive into just some of the profiles in the book, from Carla Hall, Gray Chapman, Celia Sack to Gail Simmons.

  • Plus, Lindsay shares the greatest lesson she learned from writing the book, how her relationship to cooking has changed, her biggest dream, and so much more!

We'd love for you to check out this week's new episode and join the conversation ✨
