Self Actualization Thru Kink with Master Joshua
“I do not have the answers, but I have the right questions to help people find the answers for themselves.” That is one of the most empowering statements I have ever heard and it’s part of tonight’s show. It was made by Master Joshua during our interview. He works with people to help them rid themselves of shame and to discover themselves. “The experiences we’ll share, you and I, form a process of self-actualization. This process isn’t about achieving goals or overcoming obstacles, though that’s often a part of it. The actualization I speak of entails embracing who you are on one hand, and becoming who you need to be on the other.” I hope you will join us for this fascinating conversation.

Divine Messy Human with Amanda Kate
Do any of these things sound familiar? “The first sign things were not completely right was highlighted shortly after having children when physical symptoms appeared including a lack of restful, good-quality sleep and general lack of ability to function “normally”. As with a great number of new moms, I put it down to having 2 young children and a husband who worked away from Monday to Friday and spent much of the weekend pursuing his own interests. In around 2013 things intensified and I found myself needing 3-hour naps in the afternoon to get through the day – a very unlikely behavior for someone who was usually a motivated, self-starter with loads of energy. As with many people in our modern life, I ignored the signs and pushed on through putting it down to the “changing weather” or a “phase” I was going through.” My guest, Amanda Kate, found the answers and much more. We’ll share them with you on this show – premiering Thursday, March 2nd, 2023 at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT (US). The recording will be posted below at 10 pm ET, right after the show ends.

What YOU NEED to Know About Human Trafficking
On this podcast we discuss a serious topic that many people know few facts about. That topic is human trafficking – sexual trafficking and labor trafficking. The stats will shock you and disgust. It is a much more prevalent concern than most people realize. I saw a notice that Nancy Hartwell was available to be interviewed about human trafficking and it seemed like a unique topic, but I had no idea about the scope of the problem until I started doing some research for the show. Do you remember the story of the man in Cleveland Ohio that kept 3 young women hostage for years? That is just one of many stories throughout the country. I highly recommend people tune in to learn more and to be more aware of what’s happening around us. I would bet the people on that street in Cleveland wish they had had any idea what was happening next door to them…

Connection in a Time of Disconnection with Edie Weinstein
Over the last several years, we’ve become more aware of the need or the lack of touch in our lives with the presence of Covid in the world. Since the government told us not to reach out and touch others, it is amazing how aware we become of touching, connecting and speaking to other people. After a year or more of being told to avoid or limit our exposure to others, how do we reconnect with friends, family, co-workers and strangers that we have to be around? How do we compensate for limitations of touch and connection that we may have in our lives? How do we increase the connections and touch in our lives?

I asked LeslieBeth and Kristy if they wanted to join me. Then I asked a few other former guests if they wanted to join us. When we were done we have 6 coaches and therapists, over 120 pages of tips and suggestions and a LOT of information to help you prepare for the holidays with your family and friends.
