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.
Listen to the teaser:
What is Goddess Body Wisdom and what does it have to do with the Earth- and with healing? What is the #1 Daily Practice to STAY well? Maya Shetreat, MD is a neurologist, herbalist, urban farmer, and author. She and I have a fascinating discussion on the sacred nature of plants, feminine nourishment paradigms, integrative healthcare models and restorative whole-body healing.
Technically, we are all adopted (if you ascribe to the idea of God and heavenly parentage). This episode is an incredible discussion on WAITING. Have you ever had a dream that just doesn’t seem to be happening but you can’t let it go—it just “lives” in you? Even though you may not be personally touched by adoption, you will find this discussion meaningful – it’s about never giving up.
Do you feel like you’re stuck in a cycle of “not enough money”? How is abundance maintained? Do you have to sacrifice motherhood for your purpose? You CAN have it all…just not right now, and “temporary seasons of imbalance” are the key to creation! So, how do you stay motivated and aligned during all the chaos? Leslie Householder is an award-winning, international best-selling author of The Jackrabbit Factor, Hidden Treasures: Heaven’s Astonishing Help With Your Money Matters, and Portal to Genius. Since 2002, she’s been helping people all over the world discover and apply the Rare Kind of Faith that causes things to happen for powerful life changes.
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.”
What is a shared-death experience? You will find out on this fascinating episode, The Veil Pt 2, where I interview Dr. Jeff O’Driscoll, an attending emergency room physician while Jeff Olsen (in the previous podcast episode, The Veil Pt 1) was fighting for his life. While in the hospital room, Dr. Jeff shared a profound “lifting of the veil” experience with a nurse wherein they beheld Jeff Olsen’s wife who had passed on that day. Through this and other veil-rending experiences throughout his life, Dr. Jeff – like Jeff Olsen in the previous episode – has developed a larger vision for humanity and a respect for the unique paths of each human soul. After decades as a trauma one emergency room physician, he is now doing healing work and speaking full time. His book, Not Yet: Near Life Experiences and Lessons Learned is a 2018 Best of State Award Winner.
These next 2 episodes – The Veil Pt 1 & 2 – turned out to be very special. Jeffery C. Olsen was the driver of the car involved in a horrific accident that claimed the lives of his wife and toddler son. He had a profound near-death experience where he met his wife on the other side – she knew it wasn’t his time, although it was hers – and he returned to a battered and pain-wracked physical body. After years of suffering and healing and trying to make sense of it all, Jeff developed “a new spiritual mind and heart” and thus, a totally new way of looking at life. Together, Jeff and I explore the deeper meaning of spirituality, religion and truth. He’s the creative director of BYU-tv, an international speaker, a spiritual healer, and bestselling author of the book “Knowing: Memoirs of a Journey Beyond the Veil and Choosing Joy After Tragic Loss.” Jeff says his greatest joy comes from being a husband and father.
When I talk with my friend Jen, little earthquakes happen — and that DEFINITELY happened this time. Our conversation went a direction we hadn’t anticipated! Jennifer Marco is an extremely gifted professional singer and mother and healer and vocal instructor and follower of Jesus. I like her soul-based approach to life. She’s super real, especially as it relates to getting unstuck, calling out distortion and coming back to the heart of things. She believes that when we are ourselves, the world changes and heals. Who else is there to be…but YOU? This particular episode does not skirt around things; we get really REAL and have the audacity to ask some tough spiritual questions. We decided to name it: Jesus, Table Flipping & Traditions.
Are you in love with your life? My friend Tiffany Peterson is a powerhouse in the arena of empowering women. She’s a speaker, a coach and self-prescribed LIFE LOVER. She believes that we’re all destined for greatness and joy. She is dedicated to giving people real skills and tools to guide them in creating their most thriving, rich and beautiful life. So, the question, “Are you in love with your life?” is always a “YES” if you are in love with YOURSELF. Is this selfish? Self-aggrandizing? Weird? NO! Listen in on our wonderful discussion, What Will It Take to Actually Love Yourself.
Nithya Shanti – internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher from India – has personally mentored me through some of my most intense life experiences! He’s a former Buddhist Monk and Ambassador of Conscious Living, who also holds an MBA. When I first met him about 6 years ago, I was struck with his very joyful countenance and peaceful way of being. You will love his depth of wisdom and his amazing insight! One of his favorite things to say – in pretty much ANY circumstance- is, “How Wonderful.”
Listen in for a fascinating, thought-provoking look at the science of “Multiple-Braining” or mBraining–integrating all of the “brains” in our body for profound and on-going healing. My guest is Dr. Suzanne Henwood, one of only two master trainer/master coaches of “mBraining” in the entire world. In addition to this passion of hers, Dr. Henwood is an Associate Professor of Health and Social Sciences in Auckland, New Zealand, and also holds a doctorate of philosophy. She is just brimming with brilliance–knowledge, wisdom, and experience in this “profoundly simple/simply profound” field.
Today on Women Seeking Wholeness, I’m talking with Kelly King Anderson, a close friend of mine who is an absolutely brilliant creator, both at home and in business. She shares with us her forte, which is helping others to co-create with the Divine. In this age we live in, with so much information and opportunity available to us, it is crucial that we flesh out what is most important for our unique and individual path. With fresh and empowering insight, Kelly describes her own key practices for connecting daily with Deity to create something truly extraordinary.
This is my first podcast episode with just me talking. I have felt lately to be more open about my faith journey, in hopes that there could be others out there (and I know there are) who ask, question, struggle, wrestle, and have a craving for more.

Zach instructs lifechanging breathwork seminars and retreats and teaches his students, including yours truly, what it truly means to be fully awake and aware. While it is difficult to put Zach’s healing power into words, today he is here to explain the process of awakening, how to know if you are being truly mindful and present, and why you should be changing your breathing patterns to open yourself up to the divine Universe.
