Join host Sabrina Fritts for a heart-opening conversation with Lyena Strelkoff who found that her paralyzing injury liberated her from the paralysis of life.
Here’s a link for Lyena's free gift and discover why forcing yourself to "be positive" is making things worse.
Lyena Strelkoff is a transformation coach, storyteller, and speaker passionately dedicated to elevating the way humans respond to change, challenge, and adversity. When a hiking accident left her paralyzed at the age of 33, this lifelong dancer was surprised to see her so-called tragedy improving every aspect of her life, from her mental health to her personal relationships to her career. Inspired by this shocking -- and nearly immediate -- metamorphosis, she developed The Shero’s Way™, a systematic, feminized approach to adversity that turns challenges into the catalysts that catapult us upward. She holds a Master’s Degree in Human Development, coaches women nationwide, and leads private retreats and workshops. She is a contributing essayist to the popular book Dancing at the Shame Prom and the subject of an award-winning short documentary. She is also a critically-acclaimed storyteller whose autobiographical one-woman show, “Caterpillar Soup” has enjoyed five national tours and an honor by VSA Arts, an affiliate of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Lyena has appeared with Jane Fonda, Marisa Tomei, and Rosario Dawson among others, and has been featured in newspapers across the country including the Los Angeles Times, heard on National Public Radio and numerous podcasts.

Join host Laurie Seymour of The Baca Journey for a dynamic conversation with Judith Tamarah about the spaces in which we live and work.
Our environment tells us a story of who we are and who we think we are. We can consciously create the immediate environment of where we work to support an abundant and spacious expression of ourselves.

She helps you figure out where your desk should go, what color to paint your walls, and all of the little details so that you feel more at ease, totally at home and completely held by your office.
She holds a Masters Degree in Interior Architecture at the University of Oregon and is certified in Design Psychology.
"I can feel in their vibration what is opening on a soul level, and I follow that path---the soul resonance----in the design."
If your office or workspace feels funky---and not in a good way---you can invite Judith to take a fresh look at your work space and get insights on how to bring your office into greater alignment with who you really are.
A Gift! To sign up for a complimentary Fresh Look session, visit her website, www.judithtamarah.com. Judith works with you virtually so she can help you create your perfect work environment no matter where you live.
