Do you consider yourself to be a spiritual person? As someone raised in an uber-religious school and church, it took me years to tease through those experiences (which, to be totally honest, weren't full of sunshine and unicorns) and after leaving the church learn what a spiritual practice looks and feels like for me outside of religion.

In today's episode, I open up (like, way, way up!) about the journey I've gone on a...

Have you ever read a poem or a quote that stopped you in your tracks? Frequently, the work of Yung Pueblo does that for me. Recently he posted a poem from his book, Clarity and Connection, on Instagram that made me pause. And that poem is the inspiration for today's mini meditation. I hope his words speak to you too, dear friend.

So press play, find a comfortable place to sit, and gift yourself 13 minutes to slow down and get ba...

    Have you ever had an experience that gave you absolute clarity? A "something's gotta change" kind of moment where you knew deep down in your being that you must make a shift?

    I had one.

    At 25 I had a quarter-life crisis and drastically changed my life as a result. I'm here right now writing these show notes in large part because of the decisions I made during that time to follow the calling that was on my heart.

    Hey friend! Did you miss the Mini Meditation Challenge earlier this month?

    No worries!

    Originally I had planned to drop the 5 days of meditations plus the bonus guided sleep meditation as part of my upcoming Patreon, but in hosting the challenge I've learned how beneficial it was for all of us (especially during this pandemic season of life) to have a regular meditation practice, and I want these tools to be available to all of y...

    Are you ready to make yourself a priority?

    We interrupt our Special Podcast Series for this announcement!

    I'm hosting my very first Live By Design Podcast Meditation Challenge

    I don't know about you, but my pandemic-induced anxiety has been creeping into my life more and more, and I don't love it. But I know that when I meditate regularly that my mind is calmer and my stress and anxiety lessens.

    And I figure I can't be the only one feeling this way. Which is t...

    Have you ever had a day where you woke up on the wrong side of the bed? Where you could turn your day around if you actually tried, but maybe you don't know where to start?

    On those days I like to break out my "Joy List" and purposefully make my off-feeling day into a good one, by harnessing the power of intention and joy.

    Have you ever read a book that took something intangible (such as joy) and the author made it feel approachable and, dare I say, attainable?

    That's exactly how I felt while reading Ingrid Fetell Lee's “Joyful.” I've always sought to cultivate joy, but Ingrid gave me the framework and vernacular to take my study to the next level. Throughout the book she explores how joy can be purposefully created through measures both b...

    Join Kate this week as she dives into the next piece of IIN’s Circle of Life Exercise - Physical Activity. Joyful movement is an integral part of Kate’s life, but that’s taken years of embracing sweating as a means of mental health support and establishing habits that support an active lifestyle to make it part of her daily routine. It can be difficult to add movement to your day when you are already juggling family, work, a social...

    If you could reach back through the time-space continuum, knowing what you know now, what is something you wish you could share with yourself, from ten years ago?

    “I would say to that 40-year-old, you are worthy as you are. You are worthy whether or not you get married, whether or not you have kids, whether or not you succeed in the normal standards that society says you succeed.”
