#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.”
