It’s been a little quiet on WELL / AWARE lately — and for good reason. The podcast has finally launched! I’m very excited to introduce (and try) a new format, as it’s an excellent way to get a more intimate feel for the topics and individuals featured on the blog. At first, the podcast will run bi-weekly. Some months may have more episodes, depending on the theme for that month. If you love it, I’ll make more. Simple as that. If you want to skip right to the podcast – please scroll to the bottom of this post!
THE PODCAST CONTENT
The episodes will feature conversations with individuals who embody the WELL / AWARE ethos: living well, mindfully. They’ll harness one or both of our two pillars: creating energy within ourselves, our WELLNESS, or fostering the energy with which we approach the world, our AWARENESS. So far, episodes dive candidly into body image, entrepreneurialism, meditation, sustainability, conscious consumption, coffee culture, yoga, minimalism and more. Podcasts on WELL / AWARE will also have a visual component, because I personally have always craved more than a thumbnail image when I listen to an episode I love. hope these stories inspire you and provide a venue through which you can explore the dialogue with yourself, both mind and body, and the world around you.
I do ask that you bear with me while I experiment with audio. I’m still new to the editing process, and nailing down a regular recording practice. For that reason, some of the first few episodes may differ in sound slightly, and for that I apologize in advance. I’m learning as I go, so it may take a few shots before I really start to get it right. I plan to keep the format open and dynamic anyway, so you never hear the same episode twice. I’m totally open to your feedback, by the way. Please email me with any thoughts at wellawareco (at) gmail (dot) com.
THIS WEEK’S EPISODE
The first episode is a very special one. I sat down with yogi Alex Sharry of Y7 to talk about her journey to yoga, what it was like once she got there. I was drawn to her initially as a student at Y7… hearing her guidance for yoga both on the mat and off deeply resonated, so it made sense that her approach to yoga and to life is a fantastic example of living WELL / AWARE. We get real about body image, perfectionism, the emotional body, self doubt and how to embrace change. This is a great episode for anyone who’s interested or practicing yoga or meditation, who has thought of quitting her job for greener pastures or who is looking to make a major life change.
