“Keepin’ It Real” with Conner Moore

“Keepin’ It Real” with Conner Moore

October 9, 2019

Things get real with personal development coach & host of "The Realness" podcast Conner Moore! He may have perfect bone structure, but his upbringing and life have been far from perfect. Conner chats with Leah and Rachel about accepting the darkness within instead of shaming it, challenging toxic masculinity, and embracing others exactly where they are without judgement. From magic mushrooms, to the ultra-intelligent Iowaska plant, to being naked and blind-folded beating a pillow until he collapsed in somatic therapy - this man has tried it all. In closing, Leah and Rachel give Conner (@connerwanders) a Goddess Oracle Card reading.

“Level UP!” with Pro Witch Kat Trimarco

September 25, 2019

Spiritual psychology and sex & relationship coach *and* author of "Self-Approved", Kat Trimarco, knows first-hand that once you see the pattern, you're not the pattern. She broke her pattern, got sober, and leveled up by being her f*cking self and she knows everyone is capable of the same. Like her book, this episode is jam-packed with helpful reminders about rock bottoms, the beauty of failure, erotic blueprints, the importance of embodiment, and making loving space for "negative" emotions. Get ready to level up, witches. In closing, Leah and Rach give Kat (@kat_trimarco) a Goddess Oracle Card reading.
