Life is full of ups and downs. Highs and lows. Triumphs and failures. And while it seems like everyone only likes to share their successes, today’s guest, Jason Zook from Wandering Aimfully, is an exception to that.

For the last half of October, I had the opportunity to study in and explore the magical land of Peru. And while there is so much to rave about - the ruins, the landscape, the history - I found that there is something else going on there. Something I could try and learn and take home with me.
In this episode, I not only explore fun audio clips from my adventures, but I also share the secret to Peruvian happiness - the power of giving.Read More
Travel is commonly viewed as an escape, a luxury, and sometimes even a burden. But to me, traveling is a vital part of being a part of the human race. Motivated by my recent travels to Peru, the topic of travel is fresh in my mind. And it's a topic I'm very passionate about if you can't already tell.
Maybe you feel the same way, but to help you think about travel a little bit differently or perhaps give you some permission to listen to your own wanderlust whisperings, I’ve come up with a little list I call 'The 3 Gets and 3 Gives of Travel' list - three things you’ll get out of it and three things you get to give, or in other words, three reasons why the world needs you to travel. I think you'll dig it.Read More
Known for her capsule wardrobe challenge Project 333 and all things minimalism, Courtney Carver from bemorewithless.com talks with us not just about our closets and simplifying, but we also get into some juicier topics of how to be your own health advocate, cultivating inner trust, what do right after devastating news, debt-free living, and more.

Today’s podcast is a special one indeed. A conversation about probably the most important thing on the planet, maybe even the universe. And that thing is love.
Dr. Jaqueline A. Bussie is an award winning author, theologian, public speaker, and professor at Concordia College up here in my neck of the woods, Moorhead, MN. In her most recent book, Love Without Limits, she writes about what it means to truly love and be loved, and how to learn to love across differences.
Take a listen as we hear about Jaqueline’s personal journey of cultivating this love within, how to deal with religious and political differences with those that you love, how to create your own loving and supportive community, and how to move forward when you feel like your purpose and mission is destroyed.
And one my favorite parts of our conversation is when she shares her experience with getting fired from her publisher while writing Love Without Limits because of the stories of her Muslim and LGBTQ loved ones in her community. How her book ended up coming to be is an incredible tale full of really powerful lessons for all of us.Read More
The end of summer and the coming on of darker days (literally, not figuratively hopefully) in this hemisphere is a perfect time to reset and reground.
Perhaps you’ve been craving that grounding feeling lately. You’ve been running around all summer, traveling, even quite literally flying in the air, and you are needing more stability and ritual and routine. That is where ‘grounding’ comes in.
Grounding is a popular term in the yoga and healing world. Grounding into a pose, grounding your energy, grounding practices, etc. But on this week’s episode, I dig a little deeper into this whole grounding thing to help you ease into the Fall Season.Read More
The delightful Jessica Williams is back on the podcast to not only give us an update on her healing journey with an autoimmune disorder, but we explore the yin and yang of self-care, discipline of taking care of yourself, financial self-care, finding purpose in social media, acknowledging your growth, and more.Read More
"Self-care is your gateway to deep healing. These practices are your true lifesavers."
Welcome to the first episode of Season 2! To begin this new season and new "seasonal vibe" of the podcast, I figured it would make sense to revisit this whole self-care thing and get on the same page.
Take a listen to hear why I'm kind of annoyed with the term self-care these days and how we reclaim its true meaning, the importance of prioritizing and personalizing your practices, and all you can expect from this season.Read More
