Just One of the Guys
Guys-look.jpg

Hey Single Girls, is taking your platonic place among a group of guys and joining in the sarcasm and shrugging becoming a place for you to hide your fear of vulnerability? This week I heard from a listener who left messages about her experience of that on the Something Better Google voicemail. (323-999-1536) I called her "Just One of the Guys" and I love her guts-- to freely let it all out on the voicemail and open up out of a genuine willingness to change. Is she alone? I doubt it. If you relate to what you hear, please let me know at somethingbetterpodcast@gmail.com!

Good Air

I once read that Jerry Seinfeld said he married his wife Jessica because she was “good air”. I loved that- something about her was just breezy, high, good weather. And to me, that was what I was doing when I was sharing my philosophies during yoga classes I taught for many years. I wanted to help everybody get to their good air. My student Michael once came to my Friday 7am telling me that in the middle of the night he had remembered a guy he saw sleeping on Pico Blvd. So in the morning, he made a breakfast sandwich thinking, ‘if he’s there, I’ll give it to him.’ He was. He came to that class so, so happy. That’s good air. We all have stuff and avoiding it is impossible. I am the first to fall down a well of my own self pity and forget others, and forget perspective-but we can still attempt a daily shift. So this week on the podcast, 25 sentiments I’ve carried, learned and discovered that can cultivate "good air" in you- and let’s just say I attend my own lectures.

Breaking Up With Your Parents with Rich Jacques

This week I am joined by Rich Jacques, a Grammy winning singer/songwriter and producer, and one of my favorite people to write songs with, not only because he's a musical genius, but because he is always up for a deep talk. (he produced the song you hear when you tune into the podcast, "Sweetest Surrender")

Rich is one of the wisest people I know, and we delved into the idea of "breaking up" with family members or anyone with whom you may be playing out stagnant patterns that block you from realizing your personal relationship dreams and desires.

I adore Rich and i think you're going to get why!
