#10: Christina The Crazy Hooper
I recorded this podcast to coincide with the documentary short I did on Christina for MTS TV's series, Stories From Home. Christina and I discuss what she refers to as her "strange talent" and talk about what it was like having a film done about her. We also reflect on vulnerability and how we both put ourselves out there to make this film come together. You can watch Christina's video she submitted to the Ellen Show on her YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElAGAdcmBbk You can also find her on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/ChristinaTheCrazyHooper/ Or, book Christina for an event here: http://www.farcoentertainment.com/performer_christina1.html And, watch the film I did about Christina here:

#08: "Clever Jiu Jitsu Girl"
"I came here to fight", she told him. He looked at her and smiled. "Then I'll teach you how to fight. Weakness is no longer an option." And with fierce determination she discovered her strength. In this podcast my guest shares how Brazilian Jiu Jitsu changed her life. In her words, "Part of the charm of Jiu Jitsu is you get to break a whole bunch of social norms that are shitty to start with." We get into it all, including grappling with 200lb men, and how she almost lost a nipple.

#09: Heather Goertzen, "Write No More"
Pause and think about the last time you opened your heart to create. How did it make you feel? If there were consequences, what were they? During this podcast, my guest Heather Goertzen shares why her younger self stopped writing despite being told by a professor she was like Kafka and why truth telling can be dangerous. We also brush on the subject of why women should gather to create rather than consume and maybe instead of going to that party to buy mascara we could paint with it instead?

2014 was the year Wellness Coach, Kirbie Cooper, dropped her bullshit excuses to focus on her health and well-being. And she has quite the story to tell about it.

#03: Sarah Tamaya "Pure Soul Medicine"
In this episode, Sarah and I talk about her experience with Ayahuasca and how it healed her. For Sarah, this is the first time she's really opened up about herself. And it's beautiful. It's real. At one time in our conversation, tears rolled down my face listening to her sing a lullaby. What's even greater is that this lullaby came to her during a ceremony, a gift brought forth from her baby son, Kuma. And she shares it with you and I. I'm so honored to share this delicate piece of pure soul medicine. In the beginning of the podcast our Skype call dropped, but we were able to pick up where we left off. It just sounds weird at first. But, you know, that's how things work at The Lark.

#04: Sarah Tamaya, part 2 "Bringing Darkness into Light"
"I don't need to go and explore the dark realms of humanity anymore. I feel like I've done that a lot in my spiritual existence. Without any back story... it's just an intuitive thing. But I feel like I've been there a lot and my time now is to take all the learning that I've gotten from that and bring them into this life now". This quote is from my last podcast with returning guest, Sarah Tamaya. I've included it in this podcast summary as sort of a point to myself. A reminder that expectations are a lesson in humility...in a way. You see, I've had ideas and thoughts about the dark side of the feminine divine circulating in my mind for a long time so when Sarah acknowledged (Her) dark side in the last episode of The Lark I was elated! I asked Sarah to return and share the dark and mysterious with me and everyone else who seeks the shadows. Did I do this to confirm my.... fantasies? Maybe. Did I have something to prove by digging deep and delving into the dark side? Absolutely. But that's not how our conversation went down, and for that I am grateful. Because I learned the feminine divine isn't one thing. She's not any thing. She just is. And so we share. Sarah teaches. And Kuma babbles. It's the pure art of conversation. Selected links from the podcast: Sarah has a website featuring her stylish, feverish hoops, hooping workshops and other tidbits. Visit her at: hoopinfinite.com. Proceeds from hula hoop sales are donated to charity. You can also listen to Sarah on Soundcloud. During the podcast I was looking at Emily Balivet's artwork. Her website is emilybalivet.com. Go check out her beautiful and luscious paintings, you won't be disappointed.

#05: Niki Trosky "Bold Hearted Love Goddess"
For this episode, my guest is Niki Trosky--photographer, stylist, writer, filmmaker and healer from Winnipeg, MB, Canada who shares her story about a personal sexual revolution she had in India. She says, "India for me, as much as I found some beautiful lovers along the way on that trip, it was more about landing into understanding of my true self and my love of life." Niki's story grew from a seed planted by her younger self to live life by her own rules. The roots took hold from a passion for living and a love of life. Following her heart across the globe to India watered her spirit and nourished her soul, growing into a book titled, "Love Life", which is available on bookshelves and online at McNally Robinson and Prairie Sky Books in Winnipeg. Like a Fairy Godmother, Niki uses her magical stardust powers to help others. Her glamorous photo shoots, image consulting and healing sessions are just a few of the ways her creative forces are helping others honor their highest selves. Go to her website lovelifeproductions.ca to check out her stunning portfolio. While you're there, schedule yourself a Feather Heart Healing session to bring forth balance and harmony. A necessity in this world of possessiveness.

#06: Beth Martens, "Living a Creative Vision"
At the age of 29, business coach Beth Martens was VP of her family's corporate marketing firm and traveled to India for yoga and meditation at least eight different times. Her life was a perfect balance of work and play. Or so she thought. Her double life of corporate chaos and spiritual solitude came crashing to a halt with the diagnosis of stage IV lymphoma. Surviving was now her newest pursuit. Beth says, "I could keep fighting against the reality of my death but it was pulling my death in closer and closer to me." Have a listen to Beth tell her story of surviving cancer and then thriving in her life's purpose--mentoring women on overcoming fear and expressing themselves authentically through their love based businesses. In this podcast, Beth uses the Release Technique on me, which is something she incorporates in her business coaching to help women confront their fears. At first I was skeptical, then I felt vulnerable. BUT, it helped. My subconscious ejected a fear that was embedded in my psyche from, I believe, the time I was conceived. So crazy. Photo credit: Niki TroskySelected links from the podcast: Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential by Caroline Myss Lester Levenson, discoverer of the Release Technique Connect with Beth here.
