#25 Cal Patch (Crochet, Entrepeneur) / Hawley Hussie (HHArtLab) “Happiness and Freedom…that’s SUCCESS”

Girl Talking about new pods we like on body positivity and mindfulness. Shana’s having a HOT FLASH about some criticisms of 12 step programs. Guest Cal Patch, sewer, maker, and teacher talks about finding her happy place. Guest Hawley Hussey, artist, writer, occasional performer, a living room lounge singer, cold water swimmer, Coney Island Mermaid, educator and activist joins us in the studio to talk about how she’s created her current life affirming gig with kids and art.

#25 Cal Patch (Crochet, Entrepeneur) / Hawley Hussie (HHArtLab) “Happiness and Freedom…that’s SUCCESS”

In this week’s Girl Talk, Shana shares a tip on a new podcast from Dana Falsetti, a self defined "fat" yoga teacher who’s podcast dives into confidence, authenticity, critical thinking, body justice, inclusivity and awareness. Theresa offers up another Morning Matcha podcast on emotional metabolism with Dr. Habib Sadeghi which she found helpful in better understanding the benefits of mindfulness and not collecting residual emotional build up from moment to moment.

HOT FLASH! Shana’s having a hot flash. She’s pissed. A woman who will remain unnamed is critical of 12 step programs, and Shana believes, it’s all hands on deck. We are in a crisis and these programs are helping people. Haters should just "shut up!"

Our first guest Cal Patch joins us in the studio to talk about moving through her dreams of becoming a designer and a shopkeeper to finding her happy place on a mini-farm in the Hudson Valley where she can crochet, sew, weave, make art, and teach her craft to those who want to learn. She’s written a book on pattern making which you can buy from your local bookstore, just ask them to order it for you. Find her in the Valley and beyond teaching and bring your maker self alive.

Hawley Hussey, artist, writer, occasional performer, a living room lounge singer, cold water swimmer, Coney Island Mermaid, educator and activist joins us in the studio to talk about how she’s created her current life affirming gig at the HHArtLab which is a contemporary art makers space where newly arrived immigrants and special needs children can deepen their personal art practice and build community. Hawley shares her values in life and how they help her make decisions about what to do and how to do it. She finishes up by serenading Shana and Theresa with her rendition of "God’s Plan" by Drake.

Tomorrow’s the New Moon, and Theresa shared Mystic Mamma’s beautiful words about loving our whole selves, that’s ALL the parts!

Stay tuned for next week’s show where we invite Tiziana Agnello, owner of Love Thy Beast, and Jill Bressler, Designer turned User Experience expert. Until next week, love yourself and uplift one another.

#23 Shana’s Private Journal Entry / Mercedes Samuels (Singer Songwriter) “Intuitive Eating, Loving Yourself and Making Discipline Fun”

Today we switch things up and extend Girl Talk to go deep into Geneen Roth’s book, Women Food and God. Shana shares her personal story about her own relationship to food and dieting. After recently dipping back in to dieting after having believed she’d healed her relationship to food and herself, she opened herself up to learning more about the healing that she needs. We talked about the importance of being open to learning about ourselves and to compassionately witnessing ourselves, to listening to our bodies and to ignoring "The Voice" that tells us we’re not good enough, can’t have what we want or be who we want to be. To be continued next week when we dig into the emotional freedom of working through obsessive/compulsive behavior.

Next we hear Shana’s interview with Mercedes Samuels, a musician, who shares her beautiful wisdom, this woman is wise…right now she’s reading The Art of Loving and learning about making discipline fun and how to have better concentration.

Next week we hear Shana’s interview with Jen Shagawat from Shellshag and dip into FREEDOM! Until next week, love yourself and uplift one another.

#22 Maiko Hata (Jazz Singer) / Rachel Brennecke (Photographer Bon Jane) “Saying No to Say YES! and letting go of PERFECTION”

In this week’s Girl Talk, Shana and Theresa talk about feeling insecure and how social media fuels this. Maiko Hata, jazz singer, joins us in the studio to talk about being a music therapist and the power of music to heal, how she finally chose to follow her heart and her desire to become a jazz singer, how she struggles with saying no in order to say yes to herself and how she maintains such a mindful and peaceful approach to life. Rachel Brennecke, aka Bon Jane, artist and photographer, talks about being a former model, how it validated her need to feel good about herself and then how she had to deal with the repercussions of the need to look perfect all the time, on leaving modeling and finding a mentor to get through art school, and finding value in herself and her art in a ever-changing world. Self care? Try out a cold shower! And act “as if.”
