16. Challenges of a Woman of Color in the Professional Speaking Industry
This tea starts with lessons from Manasi's dog, Argo, Rising signs, and then settles into Manasi sharing her challenges as an immigrant woman from India to the USA, teaching spirituality as a Professional Speaker in the industry that is dominated by rich, white men motivational speakers or young, white women healers. Tune into this behind-the-scenes look to learn: How Motivational Speaking / Personal Development industry can induce wounds of self-worth on their audience  How systemic issues of sexism, racism, and cultural appropriation are showing up in Professional Speaking industry What difficult decisions Manasi had to make to not only stand up for her values but also pave the path for other WOC Speakers This is also a call for you, our loyal audience, to help Manasi get hired as a Speaker, and not shoved off to the side under the label "She is difficult to work with" simply because she refuses to present her teaching in a culturally appropriated way that many event organizers in spiritual event spaces are used to.  Manasi also conducts her own events so that she doesn't have to rely on event organizers to hire her. Her Patreon community is coming soon. Support her through that.

12. Grief & Why We Took The Unplanned Break
Grieving is a process unique to each individual. Yet there's something healing about sharing your grief (if and when you want to do that), and hearing others' experiences of it. This episode is a vulnerable share - especially for Rose. But our commitment to normalizing struggles in business and life, ups and downs in the emotions, and the energy of raw, unfiltered conversations that heal and connect us, couldn't be better tested than in an episode of this kind.  We hope that you find this share healing, connecting and inspiring.  You will know why we took this long, unexpected, and unplanned break. We are happy to be back though. Looking forward to our weekly connection on Fridays. As always, if you are looking to work with Manasi, visit her website: https://www.manasikakade.com/

She has had several other careers in her past which have given her fascinating experiences and quite a few stories.

6. Playfulness and joy of the vision
What are most of us conditioned to do when we first get an idea, a vision or set a new goal? We ask the "How" - "How do I do this?" Jumping from vision to action, is a surefire way of cutting the flow of the energy. While the how is important, it has to evolve in its due course. Forcing it out will only make the process of manifestation miserable.  There's a better, fun, and efficient next step that we must take to make it easy on us to manifest our vision into physical reality.  In this discussion, you will learn in depth about what exactly the wisdom of 7 Chakra teaches us about what that next step is.   Happy New Year 2022, Bridgewalkers! May your vision and intentions for this year come to fruition with ease, and may they serve your soul and our world. Enjoy!  Links mentioned in the episode: 1. Purchase the replay of Manasi's Vision 2022 workshop filled with music, movement and honest shares from live participants which will heal and inspire you.  You will get clear on what your soul really wants to create. 1 word / phrase will emerge to remind you of your energetic theme of the year. You will experience what it feels like to embody your vision's energy, so you can access that vibration on demand throughout the year. NOTE: You can buy this workshop anytime you want more clarity on your vision, not just for the new year. People also buy this on birthdays.  2. Want to be a part of The Bridgewalkers' Playground?

4. Marketing Practices - Trauma It Creates, What To Do Instead
Note: There's some cussing, swearing in this episode so be careful of whom you are listening with.  The world of solo-preneurship is filled with traumatic marketing and sales practices. For empaths, intuitives and in general, loving people, something just doesn't feel right. As a result, you keep yourself from promoting your own services because you don't want to be "that marketer" or on the other side you think that in order to create success, you have to follow those commonly prescribed promotional methods even when you hate them. But marketing is NOT that. So join in to hear: What marketing really is (Manasi learned this definition from Dr. Paula Saunders, her first marketing teacher in MBA and it has been her guiding light ever since to create loving marketing practices.) How to recognize when a certain marketing practice is inducing trauma in you 5 clues to be the detective that will help you keep an eye out and avoid such trauma The end goal is that you create a business container that is loving and healing not just for your clients and audience, but also for you.  Enjoy! ____________ The TEDx speech of Karen Curry-Parker that gives a broader definition of trauma as it relates to self-worth: https://www.ted.com/talks/karen_curry_parker_a_better_job_won_t_help_the_truth_about_burnout  Check out Rose's other podcast "The Psychic Salon" anywhere you listen to podcasts.

3. Stories of wounds of cultural appropriation, racism, beauty standards, and comparison to others
Oh my! This episode came through as inspiration wrapped in entertainment. It's filled with stories that discuss wounds of colonization, cultural appropriation, racism, beauty standards, and comparison to others. These stories will help you understand how we humans get impacted by systemic issues even when we aren't a direct target of hatred.   But I have to be honest, out of it all, I am in love with the ending that it culminated into. It wraps it all up in a beautiful bow that every Bridgewalker needs to hear. Enjoy folks! You will hear: Is comparing yourself with others always bad? Does it have a role in how we grow? (Human Design included) What type of comparing is imbalance, and creates wounds on our self-worth? How mindfulness impacts business success, focus and alignment  Story of how Manasi's Yoga teacher from the US unknowingly kick-started her own reflection of internalized colonization Manasi's experience in India that reflected to her commonplace internalized colonization of Indian people  So sit back, relax, and soak in the conversation.  The podcast episode mentioned where Manasi was a guest on Money Magic Podcast by Vangile Makwakwa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpf5JrHC7Hw Want to work with Manasi 1:1?

1. Origin Story of Bridgewalkers' Tea Podcast - Divine timing + Aligned Action = Flow
Join us as Manasi shares the story of how quickly this podcast came together - the idea of co-hosting, getting Rose on board, and recording their first episode was all done within a week WHILE Manasi was on vacation! Even the purpose of the podcast, tagline, trailer and podcast cover art was just channeled. But... this fast, easy, fun creative process ONLY happened because the timing was right, and Manasi and Rose were both ready to act on the inspiration. That wasn't always the case. ;) Listen in for real life, practical examples and teaching about:  - Divine timing & what it looks like, - When to take action and when to wait so you don't drain your energy (Bonus tips for Generators / Alchemists in Human Design) - What Human Design teaches us about the connection between inspiration and details of actions Of course, laughter, stories, and healing power of conversation are always included!
