Ep. 08 - Tarot & Manifestation with Meghan Rose
On this episode we have Meghan Rose dropping her gems of wisdom on everything Tarot & Manifestation. That's right - we're digging into the cards and also dipping into her trajectory of escaping the 9-5 and blazing her own trail in Spirituality and Wellness. Meghan's story is fascinating. She grew up catholic on the east coast and now she has a full time career in Tarot - a profession she never saw coming. She now does the monthly tarotscopes for Glamour Magazine, provides personal and group tarot sessions, and hosts her virtual Tarot Manifestation Meditation class weekly. What I love about Meghan is that she has this awesome mix of being grounded, unafraid to explore the nitty gritty, yet has a lightness about her. When she reads your cards, you feel like you're at a slumber party with a reallyyy wise friend. That's her vibe, and I know you're going to love her. And Idk about you, but I find Tarot to be fascinating, fun, and insightful. We get into how you can use tarot to help you predict future outcomes, bring clarity to the present moment, and ultimately how you can use it to shed light on and break toxic patterns and cycles you may be experiencing in your life.

Ep. 5 - Respecting Indigenous Peoples And Healing Through Art With Ras K'dee
Ras K'Dee (who is Native to California's Bay Area) digs deep into common misconceptions of Indigenous Peoples and demystifies historical events that seem to be skipped over or swept under the rug by our government. We also chat about how his sobriety led him to his deepest internal growth and how he channeled that energy into the Arts and how the path of creativity led him to where he is now.  Today he teaches Visual Arts to Native Youth, just celebrated the 10th anniversary of his magazine SNAG, and talks about how he built his sustainable community arts center The Nest, literally from the ground up. He's one of the coolest cats you'll meet and a true artist at heart. You'll find that he's really about three things: respect, connection, and creation.  Enjoy! Connect & learn more about Ras here:
