SEASON FINALE: Communicating With Our Creative Visions
Sign up for my newsletter by going to: www.leahsalinas.comSign up for a free Connection Call here: bit.ly/connectwithleah —Lately I’ve been exploring how I can make different areas of my life (my business, my creative projects, this podcast etc.) feel more sustainable. Not sustainable from an environmental perspective (that’s awesome as well, but a different conversation =)), but sustainable in a way that allows me to show up for all of these things consistently and with a sense of joy. I’ve found that communicating with our creative endeavors is a beautiful way to gain insights into what our creative projects really need from us. Which in turn allows us to create from a place of greater harmony, ease and flow. In today’s episode I’ll be sharing what this “communication” process looks like for me so you can apply it to your own creative projects as well! Today’s episode is also the Season 2 Finale! I’ll be sharing my future plans for the podcast (don’t worry, it’ll be coming back =)) and also how we can stay in touch until Season 3. A big thank you from my heart to yours for being on this journey with me. I’m grateful to each and every one of you!

Committed to a Creative Craft with Joseph Santos, Actor
Today I’m sharing a conversation with Joseph Santos who is an actor in LA. Joe and I originally met at an acting class and we were also in a play together a few years ago.

Some of the things we talk about in our inspiring conversation are:Imposter syndromeThe importance of being in class and “opening up the shop” What it’s like to work with Ethan Hawke Joseph’s work with writing his first pilotAnd, how candles can help with creativity =)Joe is such a wise, smart and passionate human being with a great sense of humor.

That’s what it did for me. Fabia is a Cyclical Living and Menstruality Expert, Yoga Teacher, Economist and is currently also studying Psychology and Religious Studies at the University of Zürich. A big piece of Fabia’s work is about seeing the menstrual cycle as the gift that it truly is. In today’s conversation we dive deep into what that means and so much more.Some of the things that we talk about are: How we can integrate cycle awareness into what can feel like a very masculine world Practicing menstrual awareness at the workplaceWhat the “four seasons” of the menstrual cycle are and how you can apply this awareness to your daily life How we can apply this wisdom to our creative process & projects What a “feminine” yoga practice looks like Fabia is an absolute joy to listen to and shares about this topic with so much wisdom and humor. One of the things that I love about Fabia’s work is that she makes cycle awareness feel so accessible. I walked away from this conversation feeling like I could easily start applying some of the concepts into my daily life.

Creating Every Moment with Savanna Jones-Martin, Vocalist, Producer & Embodiment Coach
Today’s episode is with another really special human being and creator, Savanna Jones-Martin. Savanna and I met two years ago in New York at an immersive experience that we both participated in. When I first met Savanna, I felt an immediate resonance with her. She’s a beautiful human being who is deeply embodied in her truth and her creativity. She’s a vocalist and in the last year she’s been very active with producing her own beautiful music and sharing it with the world. In 2020 she released an album called “Breath of Earth” and this year, in 2021, she released a gorgeous single called “Simplicity.” Currently, she’s in the process of producing and recording a new collection of songs that she’s written. Savanna is also an Embodiment Coach who uses Somatic Experiencing processes informed by the work of Peter Levine and she also teaches voice through a somatically-oriented therapeutic lens. She also facilitates dance and movement events and works as a ceremonial artist where she offers songs, prayers and space holding in meditative, healing and ceremonial settings. I see Savanna as someone who very much lives in her creative truth, which is one of the reasons I felt called to having her on the show. In today’s conversation she shares so many wisdoms and insights into the creative process. She is a true joy and inspiration to listen to!

Train Your Brain for Creativity with Elena Arici, Psychologist and Neurofeedback Specialist
As I’ve mentioned before, one of my main goals with this podcast is to share as many tools as possible to support you with tapping into your peak creative potential. Today’s conversation will be all about one of the most potent tools that I’ve discovered on my own journey of tapping deeper and deeper into my creativity. That tool is Neurofeedback. Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback which allows you to train different brainwaves and optimize the self-regulation of your brain. In today’s episode I share a fascinating conversation with Elena Arici who is a Psychologist and Neurofeedback Specialist. She runs her own Neurofeedback practice, called Lernwerk, with two locations in the Zürich area. I’ve been training with Elena and her team for the past 8 months and have experienced amazing results: I’m able to focus for much longer periods of time (which has allowed me to tap into deeper & longer creative flow states!), I sleep better, experience less anxiety and the training has also supported me on my journey of healing a chronic pain experience. Neurofeedback is an amazing tool that I feel should be much more widely known. So I’m delighted to share this conversation with Elena today, who is a true expert in the field. Some of the things we talk about are:What Neurofeedback is and how it worksWho can benefit from Neurofeedback Neuromeditation (an exciting new area of Neurofeedback!) How Neurofeedback can support the creative processPossible side effects you might experience during training Tips for finding a Neurofeedback practitioner if you don’t live in ZürichAdditional practices that can optimize your brain functionElena has such a wealth of information and insight to share.

Sustainable Creativity with Melissa Bloom, Founder of a Sustainable Stop-Motion Animation Studio
It brings me so much joy to start the year off with this beautiful conversation with Melissa Bloom. Melissa is the founder of The Sisters Bloom, a sustainable stop-motion animation studio. She is also the co-founder of Lane & Lanae (a fine jewelry and home goods company). As well as a writing coach and yoga teacher at The Mindful Writer.Stop-motion animation is the practical art form of moving elements in front of a camera frame-by-frame and stringing those together to get a moving image. Unless people are being animated, the stop-motion process requires creating puppets, sets, props and other elements to create the animated world, which often results in a process that can be quite wasteful and harmful to the environment. Which is why Melissa was inspired to start her company, The Sisters Bloom, which is all about slowing down and finding new ways to create animations that produce minimal waste and are not harmful to humans or the environment. In addition to speaking about her work with the studio, Melissa goes really deep into her creative journey during today’s interview. Some of the things we talk about are:What it’s like to suddenly question the path you’ve chosenHow it’s OK to take a step back sometimesThe importance of taking baby steps if you have a big visionWhat it’s like to carve out your creative path on your own terms.

How I Raise My Frequency
I felt called to create a solocast that is all about how I raise my frequency. I’ve come to find that my energetic state, my frequency, is directly connected to my ability to tap in my peak creative potential. When I’m vibrating at a lower frequency, it’s much more challenging for me to receive inspiration, enter flow states and to create. And the same is true for when I’m vibrating at a higher frequency. I’ve been aware aware of this for quite some time, but over the course of this year, my awareness of this has heightened. It’s become easier for me to notice when I’m in a lower frequency state and I’ve become very clear on the exact steps I need to take to shift my state to a higher frequency. As we are all aware, this year, 2020, has been a challenging one. And in my eyes, I feel like it’s been, and continues to be, an amazing opportunity for us all to take ownership over our own energetic state. We don’t have to get sucked into whatever whirlwind is happening outside of us. My goal for today’s episode is to show you how simple it is to raise your frequency. We all deserve to feel empowered and in charge of our own inner wellbeing. So join me for this sweet 20 minute candlelight chat (yes, I recorded this by candlelight!) and let’s all step into our power as sovereign beings.

Coffee for Creativity with Christina Avaness, Founder of Papua Coffee
I’m absolutely delighted to have Christina Avaness on the show today, who is the Founder of Papua Coffee as well as the author of the healthy lifestyle book “Living Beyond Organic: Nutritional Knowledge Redefined!”. Christina is also a Food Alchemist and a Shakti Reiki Master. I know that coffee can have a bit of a negative reputation. Which is justified in some cases, but I’ve found that the coffee that is the centerpiece of today’s conversation is an exception. It’s called “Papua Coffee” and I’ve found that when I drink it, it fills me with a deep sense of wellbeing, both physically and mentally. I started drinking this coffee about 13 years ago, and what I started to observe, is that it actually supports me with tapping into a creative flow state. Nowadays, I consider it a key component in my toolbox of tools that I use to support me in my creative process. Christina and her family went through their own healing journey using food and herbs, which is also how the creation of Papua Coffee came about, and you’ll hear all about that in today’s episode. You’ll also learn about Christina’s spiritual journey and how her work with energy influences the roasting of the coffee. Other than that, Christina offers up some really wise and beautiful words on creativity and listening to those is a real treat as well.

Creating a Difference: Social Entrepreneurship with Gianmarco Marinello
Gianmarco’s seminar on Social Entrepreneurship in Zürich, Switzerland on Thursday, November 19th, 2020: Social Entrepreneurship SeminarDear Friends,Welcome to Season 2 of the podcast! I decided to give it a name change, which I share more about in the introduction to this episode. I also share an amazing conversation with Gianmarco Marinello, who is a Social Entrepreneur, an Innovator and the Founder of the social start-up Nai Nami. Nai Nami is based in Nairobi, Kenya and gives disadvantaged youths of the Mathare Slum an opportunity to use their street skills and life stories to become Storyteller Guides who give tourists an opportunity to experience Nairobi through the eyes of a street child on an intimate walking tour through the city center. All of the youth involved with Nai Nami now have a job, earn a regular income and live a life free of crime. Nai Nami won the Traveller’s Choice Award 2020 by Viator and is rated as the #1 Tour in Nairobi on TripAdvisor. In March 2019, Nai Nami was handed over to the youths who now own and successfully run this profitable business themselves. Over all, this is an amazing conversation for anyone who feels like they’re struggling to find their place in the world, regardless of whether you’re interested in becoming a social entrepreneur or something else. Some of the things we’ll be talking about are: transforming weaknesses into strengths, how you can make a positive difference in the world and the difference between purpose and passion. Gianmarco is an inspiring and generous individual who is all about empowering others and I so look forward to sharing his insights with you. Enjoy the show!

And I’m not giving up until I find this spot.” - Gianmarco Marinello“Purpose is something you feel obliged to do. There is actually pressure coming from the inside… the fun part is passion: which tasks, which people, which environment is the right one…it’s easy to find out your passion, and often the purpose is hidden somewhere there. And you have to find both and then you can connect it.” - Gianmarco Marinello —May this episode bring you joy & inspiration!xo Leah—This podcast has been edited and produced by René G. Salinas.
