for women who want to feel, express,
and be who they truly are

—Hosted by Cherie Burton—


It is a sacred duty to express your sovereign soul and be yourself! In this podcast, I bring in top experts, and we go deep. These are bold, compassionate, to-the-point, & sometimes challenging conversations integrating the sacred feminine, emotional healing, mothering, authentic spirituality, natural health, self-nourishment, beauty & "fempreneuring." This is YOUR time, sister.

Suffocating sadness, feelings of sinking, drowning in the depths, the ache of deep self-loathing…How and why does depression strike in spiritual people?  Join me as I tackle this sensitive topic with Jane Clayson Johnson, an award-winning, nationally syndicated journalist and author of Silent Souls Weeping – Depression: Sharing Stories, Finding Hope. One of her life purposes as a mother, a woman of faith and a journalist is to shine a light on the desperate, dark, and lonely reality faced by those who struggle with clinical depression. Jane shares her own difficult experiences, along with others – particularly in the sociocultural context of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). Suicide is the leading cause of death for Utahns ages 10 to 17 and ages 18 to 24. It is the second leading cause of death for ages 25 to 44 and the fourth-leading cause of death for ages 45-64.  Utah’s Public Health Indicator Based Information System reports, “Completed suicides are only part of the problem. More people are hospitalized or treated in an emergency room for suicide attempts than are fatally injured. In 2014, the most recent data year available, 13 Utahns were treated for self-inflicted injuries every day.”

When clinical psychology doctoral candidate Danielle Daniel was able to make the connection between brain function and aromatherapy tools, she felt compelled to share what she had learned with others. Today she is combining the powers of medical aromatherapy, essential oils and psychotherapy in calculated scientific approaches to help her patients heal like never before.

Continuing to explore our family trauma, we are diving into our own personal viewpoints of suicide, why we believe Shawna’s decision was spontaneous and using the resources we have available now to prevent this from happening again. We are digging into why the gut may play a bigger role in depression than we realize, why […]

Women Seeking Wholeness 045: My Family's Story: Breaking Patterns of Mental Illness (A Discussion with My Sisters) Pt 1

I saw Kung Fu Panda 2 with my family over the weekend. It was crazy and cute … I loved the emphasis on finding inner peace and its tie-in to self realization. Jeff and I have pretty much decided that if our children (now in their tweens and early teens) left our home with no […]

Following is my favorite poem, “The Invitation” by Oriah. Hadn’t read it in awhile, then picked it back up this afternoon as certain phrases fromkept ruminating in mybusy head… It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting […]

I am in love with the little book, Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. It’s so inspiring the wayit’s crafted, being written as if Jesus is speaking directly to you, in a daily devotional format. Apparentlythe intimate exchange inSarah’s moments of stillness withher journal – after reflecting upon certain biblical passages -was how the book was […]

Ok, so you know how I talked in my “mother earth is shifting” postabout being in the most amazing conference (Ignite Your Spark) a few weeks ago and how I “love-love-LOVED” the way it streamed passion and exuberance into my being? How it lit me up? What I didn’t mention is that I wasat a […]
