Meditation for Emotional Regulation with Linda Coblin
In this new episode, I interview Linda Coblin, a mindfulness-based wellness coach who specializes in helping highly sensitive, professional women struggling with fear and self-doubt, to trust their inner wisdom, so they have the freedom to live with more joy, balance, and ease. She uses mindfulness, and meditation strategies to help clients break free from limiting beliefs and create lasting habits that build self confidence, self worth, and the skills to live from their authentic selves. Even though she was a talented, active, outgoing, and happy individual growing up, her inner world was plagued by self-doubt, fear of failure, and a deep need to please others in order to feel worthy. After years of searching for a way to heal herself,  she discovered meditation and mindfulness as a path to liberation, and they have been an integral part of her life ever since.

Awakening from Alcohol with Mary Wagstaff, Holistic Alcohol Coach
About Mary Wagstaff, Holistic Alcohol Coach: As a former party girl and fitness instructor I found myself one morning on the floor of a hot yoga studio unable to finish my practice because of the fleeting night before. While I was living a life by my own design, I couldn’t beat the daily overwhelm of a mind consumed by alcohol. The consequences were taking away the pleasure of all I had worked so hard for. Staring out of a foggy window, sweat from head to toe, I couldn’t escape the heartache that plagued me. Enough was enough.  Over the next 4 years, I turned my heart ache into a mission. I got honest, curious and with compassion, fixed each problem I thought alcohol was solving. I then helped turned the minds and hearts of other women struggling in alcohol exhaustion into Women of Self Authority, by eliminating their desire for alcohol all together as a Holistic Alcohol Coach. That’s when I created the Stop Drinking and Start Living program. A holistic approach to getting alcohol out of the way so you can live your life’s purpose without objection. By combining feminine wisdom, emotional processing and mental hygiene, the results are mind blowing. This model has transformed women with varying relationships to alcohol, from around the world. Turn your desire for alcohol into reawakening your desire for life.  Learn more: https://marywagstaffcoach.com

Express Your Sacred Anger
In this solo episode I channel intuitive guidance on the emotion of anger. Being angry is a healthy response, yet there are many reasons why we don't express anger and keep it locked in a box, especially as women. We can never be fully present and embodied if we don't make contact with our anger and listen to what it has to say to us. In this episode I share how to recognize when anger is showing up, especially if you've been conditioned to be the nice girl, people pleaser, and you overly identify with being at peace. I dive into spiritual bypassing of anger and why that is so common too. The Career Lab: A hybrid coaching experience to align your purpose with your career.

Reach Your Highest Potential Through Psychedelic Retreats with Jonathan de Potter of Behold Retreats
In this episode I interview Jonathan de Potter, the founder & CEO of Behold Retreats, a bespoke wellness service that facilitates journeys of self-discovery and transformation, supported by the scientifically proven benefits of plant medicine therapy. He is passionate about raising awareness on the benefits of plant medicine therapy, and its potential to improve wellbeing and mental health outcomes. This led him to launch Behold Retreats in 2020, providing curated programs incorporating a memorable plant medicine retreat in a safe, legal and highly supported setting. He has spent his career working in strategy consulting with clients across Asia-Pacific, defining and delivering digital transformation programs.  After a number of years in New Zealand, he moved to Hong Kong to work with Accenture, and most recently lived in Bangkok as country manager for the boutique consulting firm Capco. He felt that – despite an objectively great life, good friends and career success, something intangible was missing. As a result, Jonathan took a sabbatical year to travel through South America, where he attended his first Ayahuasca plant medicine retreat in Peru. The retreat experience was transformational, and in his expanded state of consciousness, he was shown directly the mindsets and behaviors that were keeping him from reaching his potential.  Returning to the corporate world, he was surprised to find he was more patient, empathetic and productive than ever before, and began researching the world of plant medicine, and facilitating retreats. Originally from Hawaii, USA, he is currently based in Bangkok, Thailand, travelling often to continue his research into the best plant medicine retreat centres around the world. He enjoys yoga, meditation, surfing, and is energized by big, bold ideas. Follow Behold Retreats on Instagram and learn more here. Book a free Career Embodiment session with Emily Smith here.

Healing the Relationship with Alcohol featuring Chef Lauren D'Agostino
In this episode, I'm back with Lauren D'Agostino, who you will remember from the first podcast episode, Cooking with Essential Oils. This time we talk about how she healed her relationship with alcohol by stopping drinking for 5 years. As I don't drink myself I'm curious about others that have stopped too and seem to be connecting with more and more people that have decided that drinking is not for them. In Lauren's case, she realized that there were reasons why she drank too much, and when she addressed those she could drink consciously. Disclaimer: This episode is about someone that is not experiencing addiction so a typical addiction treatment was not necessary. I would advise on getting clear on that for yourself first before taking up drinking again, and we talk about this in the episode.

How to Live Intuitively Using Human Design with Kezia Kraus
In today's episode, I interview Kezia Kraus, a Transformation Teacher, Human Design Guide and Reflector 5/1. Kezia owns The Keys to Yourself with her partner Pontus, who was a developer for Jovian and worked on creating mybodygraph, the tool to find your Human Design. Kezia was born in 1984 in Germany and when she was three months old, her family moved to the USA, working for and living in a spiritual community dedicated to the New Consciousness. She spent the first six years of her life traveling throughout the USA and Europe before moving back to Germany.  Her life has always had the perspective of seeking the new and looking for answers about the meaning of life. Kezia's search led her to study Art History and Philosophy of Religions, which she completed with a Master's degree in 2010.  In the same year, her quest for the meaning of life was guiding her to the Human Design System, which opened new doors for her. An inner knowledge, which was always a part of her, was thereby confirmed.  Most answers to questions that had accompanied her for many years and had sometimes unsettled her were all of a sudden cleared and answered. She could let go of so many behaviors and things that did not serve her, and she started to trust herself and her body's intelligence fully (again). In the following years, she dove deep into the experiment with the HDS until she got her official certificate as a Living Your Design Guide. Currently, Kezia is living in Sweden with her partner. They are both 5/1 Reflectors, born on the same day, the same year.  They are raising their son according to his design, which is such a delightful gift they can give to him. Kezia supports people very passionately in their journey of life - using various transformation tools - Human Design is an important part, but also essential oils, holistic health, and much more.
