#24 - AWAKENING with Preston Smiles

January 21, 2018

For most of our lives, we’re taught that we need something outside of ourselves in order to feel whole and complete. But, the thing is, in this moment, all of our needs are met.

Preston Smiles joins Nathalie to talk about this, and more advice for living happily. Learn how to break down the walls to being yourself. Nobody should be holding you back. Discover the truth of your being.

Preston also challenges the idea that we all have to find just one “thing” to do for our entire lives, discusses the reasons why he thinks men should show emotion rather than repressing, and we learn about the primal benefits of doing activities like dancing, yoga, or even just screaming. They all help to dissipate negative energy, something that many of us don’t even realize needs to be done!

In a culture where we are taught and many times programed that men don't cry or are allowed to express deep feelings and emotions - Preston challenges us to a new belief system and new paradimes - not from a place of him telling us who or what to be, but from encouraging us to be exactly who we are today. 

How do we do that? Tune in to this episode for many inspirational tools and live your most authentic life.

#22 - Life and Death. Energy and Peace. Letting Go Of Someone You Love with Brooke Baudot

December 24, 2017

While Christmas is a joyous time for many, it can also be a sad time, particularly for those who have experienced loss. We’ve all experienced loss, some more recently than others, and Christmas can bring on memories and feelings of sadness.

This episode, Nathalie speaks with Brooke Baudot about life and death, advice for grieving, and dealing with loss. In the western world, we seem to have a much harder time dealing with the transition than in other cultures. We never know how much time we have left ourselves, or how much time we have with others. Although it may be difficult to understand why bad things happen, we all have a purpose on this planet, and you may understand one day.

Also in this show, you’ll hear a bit about Brooke’s journey opening her own yoga studio and air plant business, near-death experiences, dreams, and a question about animals being drawn to meditation.

#16 Himsa - Light On Violence with Christopher Galliano

October 8, 2017

Following the heartbreaking violence in Las Vegas, Nathalie and Chris Galliano contribute to the ongoing conversation about dealing with these types of incidents. In our hyper-sensitized society, it can be too easy to mourn for a few days until the next distraction comes along. However, this means that the underlying issues are never really addressed.

Chris, who has spent time in the military, offers his perspective on gun violence and the 2nd amendment, and Nathalie speaks to the spiritual perspective. While Himsa means violence, Ahimsa is non-violence, and is the first and foremost of the five Yamas practiced in yoga.

The goal of this conversation is to bring attention to violence, as a step towards making the world a more loving place. How are you contributing to the situation on our planet?
