This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 16 of “Lean In”:Resilience: Ashlee Donohue: Connecting to Your Inner Power to Overcome the Trauma of the Past.

So many of us have experienced trauma in our past. Even if we’ve sought help for these traumas, there can be triggers or moments where it can swallow us up all over again. There’s no shame in that. In fact, we can learn from these reoccurrences of pain, and use it to fuel our resilience. Everyone is a work in progress.

In this accompaniment to episode 16 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

We’ve all experienced trauma in our lives, and it can lead us to some really dark places. Connecting to our inner selves, and more importantly, listening to our inner voice fueled by the spirit of who we are, can help us learn how to use our physical voice to prevent others from suffering the same fate.

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

I recently had the opportunity to speak to my friend, Ashlee Donohue. Ashlee is an extraordinary woman who has lived an extraordinary life. She’s written about her personal experiences with domestic violence and childhood abuse in her stunningly honest book “Because I Love Him”.

Ashlee has found her voice by telling her story, and she finds that the incredible strength and resilience she possesses comes in part from her rich Aboriginal ancestry. She has spent the better part of the last twenty years helping Aboriginal communities deal with, and heal from the scars of domestic violence.

In this episode of Lean In, Ashlee tells her heartbreaking story with incredible openness and authenticity. I must warn you, if you’ve experienced domestic violence or childhood abuse in your life, there could be triggers in this episode for you. However, I encourage you to listen anyway, and use those feelings to facilitate healing by reaching out for help.

Also in this episode:

  • The incredible story of Ashlee’s mom
  • Ashlee’s experience with prejudice as an Aboriginal child 
  • How Ashlee was swept off her feet at 21
  • The warning signs she missed from her abuser
  • Ashlee’s view on her role in the toxicity of her relationship
  • How loving an abuser can be an addiction
  • Why you should never give up on therapy
  • How to speak up when you know something’s wrong 
  • How to talk to your kids about healthy relationships

Our world is in a state of chaos. For some, the feeling of discord can become so profound that we end up losing a small part of ourselves and our physical or mental well-being suffers. Returning to the nurturing rhythm and embrace of nature can enable us all to re-connect, learn, heal and grow.  

In this accompaniment to episode 15 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

Our increasingly busy and frantic lives can reach a tipping point where we become overwhelmed and lost.  Nature is one of the greatest healers we have, so creating space to retreat and reconnect within its healing hands may be the medicine you need.  

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode of Lean In, I am beaming with joy at having this exciting opportunity to explore how one woman’s inner turmoil led to her slipping on the walking boots and venturing out on an epic journey of healing and self-discovery. 

Terra Roams is the wilderness adventurer, speaker, mentor and storyteller, who walked her way into the record books, becoming the first woman ever to trek the 17,000-kilometre journey around Australia, totally alone and unsupported. 

Terra is a self-proclaimed ‘outdoorsy person,’ and if you look hard enough you can now usually find her on an adventure either bushwalking, sailing, kayaking, diving with great white sharks, snorkelling with turtles and whales or even backcountry skiing. 

She has spent most of her life volunteering in Australia and overseas, dedicating her time to mental health charities, animal rescue, wildlife conservation, social justice issues and even firefighting.

Today, Terra opens up about her four-year escapade, and how it was driven by the desire to experience solitude in nature after a life-long struggle with suicide, PTSD and mental illness. We talk about fully opening your senses to the landscape and using that to practise mindfulness in a world that seems to treasure business.  

Also within this conversation

  • How ants can give you the weather forecast
  • Why teenagers need natures medicine 
  • Terra’s lifelong battles with depression and PTSD
  • How a childhood book inspired  Terra’s 17,000km trek
  • How a well-meaning charity walk turned into death threats and violence
  • The surprising acts of human kindness
  • Walkie-Talkies, truckers and the need for anonymous connections
  • Terra’s new-found relationship with her body
  • How walking and meditation go hand in hand
  • Why the end of her trek was the hardest part

Over time, our motivations can often burn out or fade. Reigniting that flame should come from a place of deep love and consistent dreaming so it can truly become your reality.

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

I recently had the opportunity to speak to Mark Visser. If you’re not familiar with the surfing world, Mark is an Australian professional big wave surfer. He is best known for taking the plunge and becoming the first person to surf Hawaii’s most dangerous wave ‘Jaws,’ at night in 2011. 

This amazing feat made surfing history as he rode 30 to 40-foot waves under the illumination of just starlight and an attached LED light attached to his vest. The event was documented in a film called, ‘Night Rider’ and received multiple awards. 

Since his claim to fame, he’s been dubbed “one of the fittest watermen in the world,” and spends his time coaching many world athletes, professional sporting teams and elite military groups across the globe.

Mark is also an author, keynote speaker and ocean adventurer, and in 2017 released his book ‘The Big Wave Method’ 

In this episode of Lean In, we go deep into Mark’s colossal physical achievements and bring to the surface what his motivations were to take on the world’s biggest waves. Together we uncover Mark’s persistent inner ego, and the newfound intuition that guides his decision making.

Also in this episode:

  • How a peach and a sheep’s trough kindled a deeply rooted fear 
  • Remembering Mark’s first wave
  • Why a knee injury changed Mark’s athletic trajectory
  • The freedom of the waves
  • How Mark became a globetrotting surfer
  • What catching the biggest waves truly feels like
  • Why opportunity knocks when you least expect it
  • Why Mark felt like he had something to prove
  • How Mark ended up on a spiritual journey
  • Sharing his wisdom and leaving a legacy

Taking an idea and making it happen isn’t always an easy path to follow. The roadblocks constructed by fear often dictate how we execute our creative processes. When we choose to tune into our internal intuition and ground ourselves by committing to our chosen path, while wholeheartedly trusting in our own power, truly magical things can happen.

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 13 of “Lean In”: Wisdom: Paula Shaw: The Quest To Self-Acceptance

Our whole lives are spent in the pursuit of wisdom. And it comes in many different forms, and some is obtained by studying and becoming an expert in a particular field. Others wisdom arrives through living and experiencing. No matter which way we obtain the wisdom that we do, there is no greater gift than being able to pass that wisdom on to another human being, so that they can learn more about the world they live in and experience it through a different set of eyes.

In this accompaniment to episode 13 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

We all just want to be seen for who we are, so when we don’t quite fit into the ‘normal’ mould, we can end up feeling isolated and like we don’t quite belong, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Maybe you need to accept yourself for who you are.  

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this emotional and spiritual deep dive of an episode, I speak with my personal mentor and extraordinary friend Paula Shaw. Paula is an intuitive healer and psychic, working with all the unseen realms of this world for most of her life. She incorporates her own psychic vision with some of the world’s most ancient healing modalities, through tarot readings and astrology. 

From a very young age, Paula has been receiving psychic energies and information. Over time, she has learned to channel these energies and has dedicated her life to conducting soul guidance readings for others.

As the proud creator of The Luna Project, Paula has guided thousands of people towards a life of proactive ritual through her continuous monthly program which navigates the monthly moon cycles to bring you into a deeper connection to our inner soul wisdom.

Paula doesn’t often tell her story, that’s why this episode is so special. Today she reflects on seeing ghosts as an eight-year-old and struggling to explain her reality. 

We look at her long stint living the gypsy life with the psychic circus while exploring why she was ejected from Sunday school, and how she went from chronic insomnia to just letting go.   

Also in this episode:

  • How Paula discovered her spiritual abilities
  • How a ghostly figure led to acceptance
  • Why reading a Dolly magazine created Paula’s new astrological path 
  • Paula’s Psychic Circus adventure and a surprise life changing gift from her mother
  • Why fear and misunderstanding created acceptance in Paula’s life
  • Why Australian’s out in the bush just want to be seen
  • How asking reality to ‘bring it on’ created monumental regret
  • Don’t try and be a mummy, be a mother
  • The Luna Abundance Program
  • How Paula contends with the client’s deep issues
  • Breaking down the episode – Pat explores acceptance and ritual

Welcome to ‘Your Space,’ an embodied and direct experience that allows you to engage in a restorative moment of calm, to unwind, reflect and be nurtured. 

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 12 of “Lean In”: Worthiness: Kate Reardon on the Road to Knowing Who You Are.

There are always big challenges in life, sometimes when they show up we can enter into a space of excitement, curiosity or even fear. Should the path become difficult, our mind may start to create a narrative that prevents us from embracing the moment and reaching your fullest power and potential. 

Feelings of unworthiness or undeserving of your successes can become an unwanted fixture. We should always greet unworthiness like an old friend and speak to him, then we can begin to change the story.

In this accompaniment to episode 12 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

Our path in life is never linear, the twists and turns we face can take us on a journey that not only brings us wisdom, but also allows us to confront our fears and explore what we truly are capable of achieving in this world.

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode, the tables have turned and our usual host Kate is firmly nestled in the hot seat, with her husband Pat sitting in as host. 

For those just joining the Lean In clan, Kate is a qualified practitioner of Naturopathy and Nutritional Medicine. She’s an intuitive metaphysical healer, yoga teacher, a published author, keynote speaker and one hell of a wife and extraordinary mother.

Kate initially began her career as a holistic health practitioner, setting up her clinic in Australia, before officially taking the leap to become the co-founder and managing director of the award-winning, world-renowned fasting detox retreat centre, Natural Instinct Healing in Bali. 

Kate’s nomadic nature and relentless curiosity means she’s an explorer at heart, not only in travelling the world but also in finding out how she can help people achieve radical healing and transformation – mind body and soul. 

In true Kate fashion, this conversation is a raw, open, and honest. She takes us through the starting points of her own healing journey and the harrowing experiences that drove her there.  

We meet her long-term friend ‘unworthiness’ and how fasting is the perfect medicine when you’re making BIG decisions. 

Also featured in this episode

  • How an outgoing 15 year became a shell of a teenager
  • Why taking a trip to a homeopath changed Kate’s life forever
  • The power within and a new trajectory
  • From university drop out to globetrotting gypsy 
  • How a trip to Mexico put her back on the path to education
  • Finding your support network
  • Diving into the concept of ‘life purpose’
  • The indicators that you’re not living your life’s purpose
  • How fasting creates a new clean slate
  • Kate’s battles with burnout and not feeling worthy

Welcome to ‘Your Space,’ an embodied and direct experience that allows you to engage in a restorative moment of calm, to unwind, reflect and be nurtured. 

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 11 of “Lean In”: Determination: Katherine Maslen on the Never-Ending Healing Journey. 

We all carry our own baggage with us through our lives, a culmination of joy, pain, fear, loss and love. For some, the more negative experiences hold them back, while others use their positive life moments as the fuel that drives them forward. The difference usually between these two groups of people is the determination to reach through obstacles and make a difference to their life, and those they bring with them.

In this accompaniment to episode 11 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

When we’re deep within an emotional or healing journey, following your intuition and having the right support around you may be the key to tapping into your full potential. 

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. 

My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing. If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode of Lean In, I’m reconnecting with my bestie Katherine Maslen at my parents’ home back in Australia. 

Now, I know I may seem biased but Katherine is an absolute powerhouse of a woman. She’s a mother, clinical naturopath, nutritionist, author, and podcast host of the first of its kind audio documentary series on gut health, The Shift. 

Coming from a past of extreme grief and trauma, Katherine has gone on to complete two bachelor degrees in health science and naturopathy, founded Brisbane Natural Health, Australia’s first membership-based holistic health clinic and the international wellness company Shift. 

If that’s not enough, she speaks internationally on health and wellness, and has written a bestselling book ‘Get Well, Stay Well.’

In this highly candid conversation, Katherine dissects her turbulent past life.  She hones in on her abusive childhood, drug addiction and the people that saved her life.  We talk about why the healing journey never ends, and why being the victim just doesn’t serve you. 

Also featured:

  • How a little angel tapping on her shoulder saved her life
  • Why a book on herbal rituals changed everything
  • The victim crisis and why we need to confront it
  • Are you supported? Finding the answers to your internal problems
  • Why we must give ourselves permission to rest
  • The intensive process of creating an audio docu-series
  • Why accessing your self-awareness is like a ball of yarn
  • Why you must  trust your intuition
  • How being nurtured and completely surrendering can change your life

Welcome to ‘Your Space,’ an embodied and direct experience that allows you to engage in a restorative moment of calm, to unwind, reflect and be nurtured. 

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 10 of “Lean In”: Dream Big: Joyce Azzam on Finding Your Inner Power. 

Our lives can sometimes get lost to the day to day steps, the small things we need to do. There are some among us though, that look beyond this narrow focus of daily life and see a much bigger goal. A bigger dream to achieve. And while there is a similarity in achieving big dreams and living daily life, the smaller steps needed to complete massive goals. It is when you accomplish those big dreams you realise you’re on top of the world and can almost, almost, touch the sky.

In this accompaniment to episode 10 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

Dream big, explore, and dare to take the risk. The beauty you will find in accomplishing your dreams will help guide you towards a place of wholeness.  

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this deeply inspiring episode, I speak with Joyce Azzam. Born during the Lebanese Civil War in Beirut, Lebanon, Joyce and her family had to flee their home multiple times in order to survive, often taking refuge underground. 

Originally taught to fear nature and all its potential dangers, a headstrong, teenage Joyce decided to accompany a friend on a hiking trip, which ultimately opened her eyes to a new world and fuelled the fire for exploration and mountain climbing. 

Armed with the catchy slogan, “mountains are my mentors,” she took travelling to a new level, striving to become the first Lebanese woman to have climbed 26 mountains around the world. 

Recently, Joyce successfully completed the 7 Summits Challenge, climbing seven of the world’s highest mountain peaks. On top of all this, she has studied hard for her three master’s degrees, in Interior Architecture, Governance Models & Management of Local Public System and Conservation of Historic Cities and Buildings. 

She has smashed her inherited cultural female stereotype, and laid out a clear message, that anyone can live out their dream coining #YESYOUCAN as an initiative to motivate others, particularly young women, in achieving their goals. 

Also featured within this episode:

  • Joyce’s journey through a devastating Civil War
  • How Joyce found a love for nature
  • Contending with Hypermobility Syndrome as a hiker
  • Facing your fears and why you must set goals
  • Smashing stereotypes, how Joyce is inspiring women
  • How the mind is more powerful than the deed at hand
  • Just try it – Life is fleeting
  • How to find the right ingredients for success
  • Why the mountains are Joyce’s mentors

Welcome to ‘Your Space,’ an embodied and direct experience that allows you to engage in a restorative moment of calm, to unwind, reflect and be nurtured. 

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 9 of “Lean In”: Vulnerability: Emily McDowell on Opening Yourself Up To New Beginnings. 

In today’s modern world there is something to be said for the common links between us as humans. While it feels like these links are becoming rarer and rarer each passing year, the truth of how vulnerable we all feel is a constant in our lives. In fact, the very thing that pushes us away, our fear of our vulnerability being exposed, ironically is what binds us in truth. When we embrace and share our vulnerability, the possibility of connection is endless.

In this accompaniment to episode 9 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

New beginnings can be unpredictable and scary, but if you just take that chance to unchain yourself and take the leap, they can also be incredible.

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode, I speak with Emily McDowell the inspirational writer, illustrator and multifaceted entrepreneur. In 2012, Emily moved away from her hard-earned career in advertising to begin an illustration business, designing and making not-so-average greeting cards. 

By January 2013, Emily McDowell Studios became a global talking point after she released her true to life empathy cards that encapsulate life’s emotionally awkward moments, with honesty, humour, and heart.  

The non-traditional empathy cards came from her own experiences with grief and this much-beloved collection started taking the world by storm. Emily has since been featured across hundreds of media outlets, including BBC News, NBC, Good Morning America and The New York Times. 

Emily takes me through her influentially artistic childhood and how she climbed the ladder towards success, only to find it had been propped up on the wrong wall. She speaks about the greetings card that went viral and explains why we need to prevent internalisation by genuinely feeling our feelings.

We also discuss:

  • A true artist from day one
  • Entering into her cancer phase of life
  • Emily’s advertising career path and where it led too
  • Wake the F**k up! – Why a friend’s death changed everything
  • How Pinterest kick-started the artistic ball rolling
  • Our messy and chaotic journeys, with the vulnerability hangover
  • Starting a business in the lounge – The Empathy Cards
  • Why you don’t need to be the next Oprah
  • The real meaning of bravery

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 8 of “Lean In”: Redreaming: Mel Loh on Refuelling Your Life’s Motivation. 

The lived experiences we have can sometimes be hard for us to see through and gain a different perspective and view in another light. This can also be said for the experiences we have while we sleep. To be able to revisit a dream and see it from a new and exhilarating viewpoint, to redream, is a phenomenon few have the pleasure of experiencing. 

In this accompaniment to episode 8 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

Are you feeling uninspired or unmotivated? Sometimes your internal fire, the one that drives you, can fizzle out into just smouldering embers. During these times, we can shift our direction and take a new path that reignites the soul. 

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together. 

In this episode of Lean In, I get down to business with one of the most mind and heart centred entrepreneurs I know, Mel Loh. Mel is an inspirational, self-described east-west mix, third culture kid that doesn’t quite fit the mould when it comes to her professional and personal life.  

Being from a well-travelled, multicultural background has given Mel an open perspective of life, allowing her to unintentionally make unconventional choices, and this is why I love her. 

She’s a People-Planet-Profit driven business & leadership coach that transforms ideas into success, helping her clients solve real-world problems, all under the belief that modern entrepreneurs and businesses can be one of the fastest vehicles for positive change in the world.

Mel and I discuss the highs and lows we’ve both experienced on our entrepreneurial journeys. She reveals how we can all confront our deepest fears and cultivate our own bravery, while also discussing the concept of ‘Redreaming’ and the importance of living a life of freedom.

Also featured in this episode: 

  • How a multicultural Mel found her tribe
  • The benefits of growing up as a travelling child
  • A 17-year-old Mel’s first published article
  • The changing landscape for entrepreneurs
  • Seeing the cobwebs of your psyche – Starting a business
  • The body’s indicators of ‘no’
  • Living your authentic self 
  • The redreaming concept and aligning with what’s going on
  • The illusion of being busy
  • Our love affair with technology
  • How the virtual world is exploding, and ways we can stay connected
  • Mel’s views on giving back and how to form cross-cultural relationships
  • The reality of  having freedom
  • Cultivating bravery and confronting our fears
  • Learning and earning – working within your passion

Welcome to ‘Your Space,’ an embodied and direct experience that allows you to engage in a restorative moment of calm, to unwind, reflect and be nurtured. 

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 7 of “Lean In”: Surviving: Ibu Sari on Turning Pain Into Positivity. 

Surviving is something that gets thrown around a lot these days. ‘I survived work for the week’, ‘I survived Christmas with the in-laws’, ‘I survived school drop off’. And yes, while we are all living our own existences and each step forward, no matter the challenge, can feel like battling all the powers in the world. It is only when you come through a time of immense pain or tragedy that you really know what surviving truly means. 

In this accompaniment to episode 7 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

When we’re confronted by an impossible situation, one that pulls us out of ourselves, we can enter into a place of anger, fear and pain. Turning the negative towards more positive energy could be the best path to follow. 

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode of Lean In, you can find me sitting in the middle of the jungle, singing to the monkeys with Ibu Sari, one of the most inspirational women I’ve ever met. 

Ibu is the founder of the PKP Women’s Center in Sari Pollen, Bali. It’s a safe haven for the many divorced women in Bali to come, share their stories within this loving community while developing their business skills, and engage in further education. 

Ibu has also gone on to become the director of Sari Hati School, which is a school for mentally and physically disabled children. 

Ibu’s story is not an easy one to hear, and like me, you may need a few tissues to get you through. Today she opens herself up fully; allowing me to share in her deeply emotional journey. 

She recounts her struggle with divorce, isolation, rejection and suicide while lifting the veil on the realities for many Balinese women growing up within a patriarchal society.  It’s a beautiful, powerful and transformative story, and we can learn so much from her quest for survival as she emerges from pain to positivity.

Also featured in this episode:

  • Ibu’s story – The beginnings of something big
  • The shadow of suicide and how Ibu found the light
  • Using dreams as a sign of what was to come
  • Praying for a miracle – The power of prayer
  • Reading and using the signs
  • Killing yourself softly – contending with grief
  • Giving up the things that are most precious
  • Changing direction – How Ibu focused on those who needed help the most
  • How children brought Ibu pure happiness
  • Nothing is coincidence in this life – the reunion of mother and daughter
  • Sitting in your beautification

Welcome to ‘Your Space,’ an embodied and direct experience that allows you to engage in a restorative moment of calm, to unwind, reflect and be nurtured. 

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 6 of “Lean In”: Acceptance. Cat Kabira on Navigating Self-Acceptance and Reconnecting With Your Core Truth. 

Acceptance is an easy thing to do when what you are faced with requires little change or perspective change. It is only in situations when you are faced with grief beyond what you think you can handle, or a perspective so alien to your own that you instantly reject it.

However, it is in these tougher to handle areas of acceptance that we truly know what we are capable of achieving and handling. 

In this accompaniment to episode 6 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

Looking out into the world and constantly feeling that we belong elsewhere can take us away from the present. The magic is in the here-ness, in the moments of presence and accepting yourself in all your messiness.

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode of Lean In, I sat face to face with Cat Kabira. Cat is almost superhuman in how she contends with life, a beautiful trait that has given her the ability to teach others to connect and tune into their personal power and reconnect with their core truth.

Her teachings stem from a lifetime of searching for her own self-acceptance, as she has had to navigate through eating disorders, depression, physical and emotional abuse, sexual violence, as well as addiction to drugs and alcohol. 

Born in New York, Cat grew up on the east coast and Midwest. Her practices have taken her right around the world from Bali, the United States and Australia to Europe, Asia, and South and Central America. Her warm and tender nature has gracefully positioned her as a world-renowned yoga teacher, trainer and master of the subtle energetic arts.

Cat exudes openness and tells me her story with transparency, vulnerability, and realness. We talk about the first time I met Cat, and the influence she had on the way move within this world. The inner battle she faced with her own femininity and finding safety as a woman. She also brings forward the truth that resides in us all, we are imperfect, and that’s okay. 

Also within this episode:

  • Cat’s story of incredible trauma, abuse, sickness and violence
  • Why Cat created her male persona, Christopher
  • How Cat came into her feminine side, and what that brought into her life
  • Walking through her family dynamic and how it led to the unseen realms
  • The stronghold of eating disorders
  • How a meditation session changed her life
  • Cat’s secret trip to Africa
  • Our pain is our portal to god
  • Genuinely being within our body, and what that truly means

Life is full of adventure, whether that be a moment that you share with someone you have a deep connection. Or the grand sweeping adventures vacationing in exotic and foreign lands.

Life is one big adventure. There are risks and surprises throughout that can either push us off the path or give us the needed strength to endure. 

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode of Lean In, I had the privilege of speaking with Lucy Barnard, the extraordinarily resilient woman who has set her sights on becoming the first woman ever to walk the length of the world. She started her journey in the southernmost point of South America and seeks to conclude it at the highest point of Alaska, covering over 30,000km across 15 countries.

From battling freezing storms to overcoming water poisoning, the road so far has provided many challenges. It will be nearly three years before Lucy is set to return to her homeland of Australia, and with the journey’s constant physical toll along with crushing isolation, fatigue and regularly depleting funds, she has often considered halting it all and heading home. However, she always finds hope. 

Lucy takes me through her journey so far and why she chose this adventure. How the kindness of strangers has saved her life more than once and why one became two when she picked up a welcome, furry companion. 

Lucy also shares:

  • Being raw in her journey – how Facebook ads spurred her to show the reality of solo travelling
  • The monumental promise Lucy made to Chile
  • How the support of others keeps Lucy on her path
  • How Lucy brought her family into the whole spirit of her adventure
  • Surviving a freezing 250km kayaking journey 
  • How she had overcome her self-doubt and shifted her mental perspective
  • Finding her balance and grounding inner voice
  • How Lucy contends with the outsider negativity
  • Why Lucy’s experiences inspire the next generation
  • Wombat – Lucy’s cheeky adventurer 
  • Lucy’s intense and loving relationship with mother nature
  • How human kindness led to Lucy standing naked in a stranger’s kitchen

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 4 of “Lean In”: Dreaming. Jeremiah Abrams on Unravelling The Psyche and Decoding Our Dreams. 

Throughout human history, dreaming has always been something that has guided and controlled the fate of our past, present and future. 

Lost among our recall of events and our own imagination of what could be, humans have taken solace in what comes to us while we sleep. The more we find out about our own minds the more we find a place for our dreams, even in the modern world.

In this accompaniment to episode 4 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

Our dreams are the breadcrumbs that help guide us towards a better understanding of our own psyche. They can provide that intuitive inner guidance, pointing us to the things in life that we may need to pay attention to the most. 

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode of Lean In, I invited Jeremiah Abrams to share his wisdom and take us through the realm of dream psychology. 

Jerimiah started out in the ‘helping profession,’ during the anger infused times of the Vietnam War. Now, he is a Jungian therapist, author and dream psychologist, working in both San Francisco Bay area and Ubud, Bali.

Jerimiah is considered a world leader in working with the Human Shadow and wrote his critically acclaimed, bestselling book ‘Meeting The Shadow,’ along with other works including, The Shadow in America, and Reclaiming the Inner Child

His audio program, The Dreamtime Journey: The Path of Direct Experience is a pure testament to his abilities in helping people deconstruct and analyse the symbolism presented within their dreams. 

I walk alongside Jeremiah as he takes us on his journey of slumber and visions. He introduces the idea of ‘unpacking the symbology,’ while focusing on exactly where dreams come from and the importance of setting intentions before you sleep.

Jeremiah also shares:

  • Jeremiah’s background – In the shadow of Vietnam 
  • How we can use our dreams to unravel our own psyche
  • Why we all need to pay attention to our dreams more
  • The Dream Thieves – methods of recounting our dreams and making connections
  • Why am I having this dream now? – Exploring symbolism
  • Dreaming and its ability to see around corners 
  • The importance of setting intentions before you sleep 
  • Inner guidance – the positives and negatives
  • The Shadow and what we don’t want to admit about ourselves
  • The baby steps we can all take in our journey from head to heart

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 3 of “Lean In”: Expression. Kamau Abayomi on Unleashing Your Uniqueness and Inspiring The Inner Artist. 

How do we express who we are to the world outside of ourselves? As humans we have found many different ways: art, movement, discussion, love, writing, building, creating – to name only a handful. 

It is part of our make up that we are able to connect to each other by expressing our needs, wants and desires that transcend just what we can say, feel and do. Carving the very earth in the expression of what it means to be human.

In this accompaniment to episode 1 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

In this episode of Lean In, I dive into the fascinating life of Kamau Abayomi and the inner workings of his highly artistic mind. Kamau is the embodiment of the term “Artist”. From being surrounded by creatives in his celebrity-filled kitchen to a clairvoyant’s vision, kick-starting his successful career.

During his journey, Kamau Abayomi has been named ‘Best Poet’ in the Oakland, California poetry slam finals. He is the 2-time winner of the International Ubud Writers & Readers Festival Poetry Slam in Bali, Indonesia. 

He has been a guest artist and workshop facilitator at the World Social Forum in Mumbai, India and has conducted poetry, art and activism workshops in Japan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, West Papua. 

Kamau has been the featured poet on three chart-topping afro-house singles released by 2017’s #1 afro-house label, MoBlack Records:

  • VNICVM ft. Kamau Abayomi ‘Know Thyself’
  • MoBlack, M. Caporale & Kamau Abayomi, ‘Kiss We Pt. 1’
  • MoBlack, Moon Rocket & Kamau Abayomi, ‘You & I Are God’

Present in all of Kamau’s work is a deep love, respect and honouring of the unique individual & the collective identity. Without separation, harmonizing the mind/body/spirit dynamics of allowing one to navigate the complexities of life from a centred and balanced perspective. 

The art that flows through Kamau delves deep into dialogue on spiritual awareness, energy dynamics, nature, connection and soul purpose, in a manner that is grounded and relatable.

As with all good stories, Kamau starts at the very beginning of his creative journey. From his first stage performance at the age of five, to mentoring the Bali hip-hop dancer outfit, Aerial Crew. He explains that we should all open up into our own uniqueness and why persistence is crucial for learning new skills.

I could have talked to him for hours, and got so much from our conversation, and I know that you’ll love him as much as I do.

Other insights we talk about are:

  • Kamau’s mother and why she was his original influence
  • The Bboys – Kamau’s award-winning mentorships
  • How Kamau gets into his multiple creative processes 
  • The importance of expressing through art and using space
  • How you can begin ‘taking back your brush’ and open up to your uniqueness
  • The necessity of persistence
  • #Methree – Kamau’s revealing and intimate book
  • How you can find your voice to share your story and heal
  • Qigong – Moving your stagnant energy and encouraging flow
  • Kamau’s daily mind practices – midnight meditations

In life, we often forget how essential it is to express our true uniqueness. When it comes to our creative pursuits one of the biggest roadblocks that get in the way of that is fear – it’s time to let that go.   Welcome to Lean In.

Welcome to ‘Your Space,’ an embodied and direct experience that allows you to engage in a restorative moment of calm, to unwind, reflect and be nurtured. 

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 2 of “Lean In”: Hope. Rick Pursell on a Journey Through Through War, Overcoming Grief and Life’s Purpose.

Drive and determination are often applauded in our societies as desirable characteristics to possess. However it is hope, and the ability to rely on it’s warm and nurturing embrace that has pushed humanity further than any other trait. 

Hope that things will get better. Hope that we will achieve our dreams. Hope that the world we create will be better for the generations that will follow.

In this accompaniment to episode 2 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

The perfect addition to help you to lean in.

An unexpected experience in our lives shapes the way we experience this world. But any experience can be a positive in our lives. 

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In this episode of Lean In, I invited Rick Pursell to tell his fascinating story. It’s a tale fraught with fear, inner turmoil, purpose, wisdom and above all, hope. 

Rick opens up about his past and what it means to live with purpose. From his idyllic childhood exploring the lush English countryside. To planning his own suicide in the Vietnam War. 

Rick’s most recent ventures are a far cry from the chaos of war. He is the co-founder of Heaven in Bali the five-star boutique homestay in Bali. Stemming from a deep desire to help others unlock their potential. A peaceful mountainside retreat in Ubud Bali that lives up to its name, the Koi Pond Strategy. 

Rick is, to most people, the “Trusted Advisor”. He speaks about personal transformation and professional leadership development. He has presented an enlightening TEDx talk at the Ubud, Gaya Fusion. Rick is the author of books:

  • “Cause No Harm – A Handbook for Humanity”
  • “Living From The Heart,”
  • “5 Easy Steps To Mindfulness.”

His journey from being a “broken man” to rising up and embarking on a deep spiritual journey is inspiring. He has moved from the darkness and into a lighter space. 

Rick shares with me some truly incredible experiences and lessons:

  • A pacifist, a man at war, suicidal thoughts, a decision, a hope
  • The erupting inner volcano – how Rick overcame his grief
  • The impact of entering into a new stage of clarity and stillness had for Rick
  • Why we all have a life’s purpose
  • Rick’s enlightening experience in India with a Swami teacher and a mangy dog
  • What ‘downloading’ really means
  • How we can all prioritise our own personal values
  • Why elder wisdom still holds value for the modern youth

This session of “Your Space’ is the partner for episode 1 of “Lean In”: Uncertainty. Pat Reardon on Surrendering to Fate, The Tapestry of Life and Living the Moment. 

The experience that we all share living our lives is one grounded in uncertainty. We can easily convince ourselves that we have total control over every facet of our journey, but it only takes one moment to remind us just how uncertain life truly is.

In this accompaniment to episode 1 of ‘Lean In’, I will be your guide through intuitive and easy meditations, emotional processes, guided visualisations and the occasional blunt truth to get your body realigned, your mind relaxed and your soul stirred.

Getting through the tough challenges in life usually leaves us feeling like we’re out of control. Instead of fighting the challenge, maybe it’s time to get a bit more flexible. 

Welcome to Lean In. A podcast that explores ordinary people’s extraordinary lives through honest storytelling. My guests share with me their journey of discovery, laughter, personal experiences and healing.

If you are going through a change or challenging period in life, Lean In is the space where we can surrender to the cycle together.

In the debut episode of Lean In, I could think of no better guest to share with than my partner, Pat Reardon. 

So, a little about Pat. He is an avid traveller and loves nothing more than stepping out into the wide world, arm in arm with me and the kids. We love to explore the incredible cultures, languages and teachings our planet has to offer. Professionally speaking, he’s the entrepreneur in our partnership. 

Pat is the co-founder of Natural Instinct Healing, our award-winning detox, fasting and retreat. Located in the heart of the beautiful Ubud in Bali. His degree in international business and career in sales and marketing are essential elements of the success we enjoy.   

You won’t find him sitting behind a computer desk, but immersed and hands-on with clients – or catching a few waves down on the beach.

Our beautiful life together hasn’t been without its obstacles. We will be the first to admit, it’s been a pretty wild ride. 

In this episode, I dive into Pat’s turbulent life story. From leaving Australia at age 18 in search of adventure to a devastating cancer diagnosis that shook us to the core. 

Pat talks about dealing with the fear of the unknown and his conscious decision to be more present in the face of change. 

Other insights we talk about are:

  • Pat’s journey from herding goats to running a Bali retreat
  • Why passion is the fuel for your inner fire
  • The power flexibility and freedom in life
  • How a trek in the Amazon shook up Pat’s path
  • Why New Moon ceremonies are a monthly staple for the Reardon’s
  • Pat’s cancer journey – a moment of complete surrender
  • Life and death cycles and how they’re woven into our life’s tapestries
  • How mindfulness and parenting go hand in hand
  • Pat, the traveller and nature lover – indulging in the rawness of nature
  • Why it’s important to look at what is happening in our own consciousness
