Episode 73: About connection, with Elissa

podcast May 06, 2021

As we’re emerging from lockdown, we’ll be experiencing a newfound sense of connection to each other after a prolonged period of disconnection. How do we navigate this? How do we find ways to more authentically connect to each other in our workplaces and beyond?

In this episode, I share a Body-Mind Centering framework that helps us understand the importance of establishing safety and comfort before we can genuinely connect to and bond with each other. We have the opportunity...

Episode 72: About cultivating self-love, with Ko Im

podcast Apr 29, 2021

Ko Im knows self-love. She knows it because she practices it. She knows it because she writes about it. And she knows it because she’s worked hard to cultivate it.

In this episode, Ko shares how recent events affecting the AAPI community have led her to speak up and out - namely in an OpEd for Newsweek - and at the same time have required her to dig deeper than ever to access her own worthiness.

Self-love is a product of our own personal work, but it’s also a reflection of the...

Episode 71: About returning home to ourselves, with Danellia Arechiga

podcast Apr 22, 2021

Danellia Arechiga is a birth and post-partum doula, and a vocal liberation guide. This gives her a deep understanding of the canals at both ends of the body.

It also means she’s intimately familiar with how important it is to find freedom, whether you’re birthing a child or your voice. In this episode, Danellia shares how connecting to our own innate worthiness is the key to finding that freedom, and how communing with our ancestors can help us return home to ourselves...

Episode 70: About being a true influencer, with Bret Shuford

podcast Apr 15, 2021

Bret Shuford grew up as a gay kid in southeast Texas who knew he wanted to be on Broadway. Suffice it to say, he didn’t have a lot of local examples of adults living the lifestyle he imagined for himself.

But now today as a successful Broadway actor and one half of the popular Instagram account Broadway Husbands, Bret is the example he always wished he’d had. And a huge part of his work is also as the Broadway Life Coach, teaching fellow creatives how to market themselves...

Episode 69: About worthiness (and being a plaintiff in the USC case), with Elissa

podcast Apr 08, 2021

When I was 18 years old I was a freshman at the University of Southern California and I went to get my very first STD test. The doctor I saw was George Tyndall, and I had an interaction with him that I never forgot.

In 2018, news broke that Dr. Tyndall was accused of a decades-long string of misconduct. I tentatively entered the legal case against him, unsure if my story was worthy of being included. The lawyers assured me they wanted every story and every voice.

The case has now reached a...

podcast Mar 19, 2021

The spring equinox has arrived once again, and our resident astrologer Virginia Rosenberg is back to help us interpret this moment in time. If you feel like you’ve been underwater or like you’re coming out of a long hibernation, these feelings make sense according to the cosmos. But now energy is picking up.

Episode 67: About rebirth, with Elissa

podcast Mar 11, 2021

Spring is springing, and a feeling of rebirth is in the air. And yet at the same time, we’re at the one-year mark of the COVID-19 pandemic. So as we pick back up with the Find Your Voice, Speak Your Truth podcast, I want to discuss the portal we’ve been moving through for the past year and consider what it’s going to feel like to emerge into a new world.

It’s uncomfortable to be in the waiting process before we know what that new world is really going to look like....

Episode 66: About winter solstice 2020, with Virginia Rosenberg

podcast Dec 17, 2020

There’s a change of age happening, y’all. The current movements of celestial bodies in the sky are of epic proportions. As in, never-before-seen-and-will-never-be-seen-again-in-our-lifetimes proportions. And after the 2020 we’ve had, I think you get that this is all a very big deal.

So, in this last episode of the season, our resident astrologer Virginia Rosenberg is back to help us make sense of it all. Join us to put a cap on this wild year and vision how we’ll...

In this last solo episode of 2020, grab a piece of paper and a pen because it’s time to reflect...

In what ways have you expanded in 2020? What did you think your life was going to look like at the end of this year? What does it look like in reality?

Expansion means growing beyond the limits of what we can currently imagine. And in 2020 we’ve learned more than ever what it means to expand.

Episode 64: About effective communication, with Keven Brahim Kaddi

podcast Dec 04, 2020

There are tons of effective communication models out there. Keven Brahim Kaddi has studied and facilitates many of them.

As a longtime friend and collaborator of mine (we produced a new musical together in Los Angeles in 2010), I was thrilled when Keven reached out after reading my Conversation Culture article. He affirmed how much the model I created converges with other models.

In this episode, Keven will talk us through some of the shared wisdom of effective communication, and how we can...
