Author, speaker, photographer and blogger Karen Walrond is the kind of person you just want to know. You just want to soak in some of her light and magic, because maybe, JUST MAYBE, you can use it to help make your own. As someone who has worked extensively with Dove Real Beauty and as a leader in Brené Brown's Daring Way training, Karen is in the business of helping you shine your unique light, no matter WHAT the world throws at you or tells you you need to be.
In this episode we talk...
-Losing everything (yep, her entire house and all her belongings) in Hurricane Harvey and how she got through
-Having multiple career titles (she was an attorney!) and weaving them all together
-Fighting against beauty standards and a beauty industry that is highly unrealistic (and predominantly white, thin, and privileged)
-Adoption as a first choice, not a "backup plan," and creating a family based on your OWN values
...and so much more!

As a fitness star at the top of her field, Patricia Moreno appeared to have it all, but knew she was both living and selling a lie: preaching that diet and exercise were the keys to true happiness, while inside she was suffering under a heavy spell of shame and unworthiness. She knew there was more to life, and made it her mission to find the answer and break that spell for everyone suffering the same as her.
After adventures that took her around the world studying, meditating and practicing with gurus and scholars, Patricia created the intenSati Method and began to reshape the fitness industry, and the lives of tens of thousands from the inside-out. Today she's speaking up and calling out the very methods and mindset that she used to be a part of. She is on a mission tear down the body-shaming self-objectifying thin-ideal norms, and show what self love in action truly looks and feels like.
In this episode, we talk about Patricia's journey from a girl whose parents put her on a diet at eight years old, to the thought leader, powerhouse, and "Spiritual Fitness" pioneer she is today. You're not going to want to miss a beat.
