Loving ourselves is the most selfless thing we can do. When we prioritize our own needs, we show up more fully for others. We are more receptive and aware. We begin to live with ease. Each episode features conversations with creatives & wellness pros whose real-life stories will inspire you to take the next step toward living a life you love. Our bottom line is to cultivate communities of fearless self-love and compassionate connection…and you’ll feel like you’re right here with us, sitting around the table with a pot of tea. We’ll walk you through an easeful living practice, and leave you with a courageous self-care tip.

Hello & Welcome to the Grounded Here Yogi Podcast, where you’ll gain access to you, your dream life, the strategies to live it, and ultimately, be at home in your health.
Re-Create Your Own Story ~ Have you wondered about this whole coaching career thing people are doing? Maybe you’re interested in being a coach, or wonder if you need one? Listen and reflect on your own goals, habits, and also, “who else is holding you accountable to these things that you want?,” and “Who else are you trying to impress at the expense of your own well-being?” I rap with friend and life coach, Shelly Smith about changing thought habits, naming and claiming our new realities rather than the same old story we tell ourselves that keeps us feeling stuck, and the absolute value of self-care.
We’re Doing This for Love ~ Activist, social justice advocate, moving about the world with an anti-oppression lens, Anna Lemler tells it like it is. After her return from Standing Rock, Anna shares the reality of the struggle to create a balance between engaging in community activism for social justice and being mindful of one’s own needs for rest, wellness, connection. She is not shy to challenge each of us to act out of radical love to have a radical impact for the betterment of our world. There is still work to be done. Might we just have the most impact in our small sphere of influence? Watch an interview with Anna and another University of Michigan Social Work Student. Anna also offers reverence to the late Grace Lee Boggs, who has also inspired me.
More Than Just Empathy ~ In this Interview with Non-Violent Communication aficionado, Lisa Gottlieb, gain insight to how your relationship with yourself can enhance your experiences with others and life itself. Practicing empathy with ourselves enables us to take care of ourselves in a way we cannot rely on others to take care of us. AND this compassionate self-communication isn’t everything. Learning to find and express our own needs, desires, and emotions is essential for acceptance, growth and cultivating real and meaningful connections with all beings.

Fearless Self-love, Not Just For Women ~ A chat with my contemporary of another gender, Dave Cavnar, recorded 11/2/16. He encourages, “Young man, stand and look yourself in the eye and ask what type of story you want to tell? Take time to get to know who you are. Being our best self ultimately benefits those around us. [In fact,] giving all [one’s] energy to another removes their own space for self-improvement.Get to know yourself first; you are complete.”Follow him on Instagram & SoundCloud
