Today I Interviewed the lovely Samantha!

Written by the lovely Samantha:

My name is Samantha Hawley and I am 27 years old (will be 28 by the time we do this show!). I grew up near Buffalo, NY but am currently living in Boston, MA with my boyfriend of 6 years and have 2 pets!
I began my professional career right after obtaining my MBA as a Project Analyst for General Electric. I spent 5 years there working my way up in the organization, gaining responsibilities and traveling abroad. During that time, I was seeking an extra way to make an income and also get physically fit.
I decided to become a Beachbody coach and over the course of 2 years I became financially stable enough to leave my full time job at GE - which became redundant monotonous work. This past September I focused all of my energy on my fitness coaching business and now have a thriving team of coaches & hundreds of clients all over the US & Canada.


Some topics Samantha and I discuss are questions right from her listeners and I want to share with you too!

1. Which is better for weight loss: cardio or weight lifting?
2. What should I eat after a workout? 
3. How important is the nutrition when you're focusing on weight loss or building muscle.
4. Is it okay to have a cheat day? 
5. What is the best ab exercise?

Meet Seryna, the ORIGINAL Pampered Goddess

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and that was definitely true in my case. After spending months of neglecting my own self-care with long hours at the office, doing energetically challenging work (and not much in the way of fun), I suffered extreme burn out. I spent months in bed in the fetal position, crippled by anxiety and depression. It was baffling to me… how could I get here when I’d made a career out of helping others work through these very symptoms… and how could I not see the signs before it was too late?

I know all about the glorification of a busy life. I also learned the consequences of not slowing down, and ignoring your own intuition. I believe we are entitled to a happy life, free of overwhelm, and I believe a regular, self-care practice is how we get there. That’s what helped me on my journey to recovery.

Pampered Goddess is a project of love, created with the sole purpose of inspiring other women to use self-love and self-care rituals as preventative measures to avoid burn out and reconnect with their own divinity. It allows me to continue to be of service, to create events and workshops that enrich and empower women, and to maintain my own energetic balance while doing so.

I’ve completed a year of formal aromatherapy studies with the West Coast Institute of Aromatherapy, and countless hours researching essential oils, crystals and other natural living supports. When not mixing up delectable essential oil blends, I’m sipping decadent teas (so much so that I sell them here), reading inspirational quotes or books, and finding new, vegan, gluten-free recipes to indulge in.

My (s)heroes include: Malala YousafzaiTaryn Brumfitt and Danielle LaPorte.

OMG I apologize!  I released the wrong show!!
here is the corrected version!
Sophia and I had such a fun talk!  This was actually our second time on the call as the first got all screwy and I could not hear her!!! AHHHH BUT I got a second chance to speak with the WISE- ONE and BOY did we have a great time!
Sophia Wise One is a fun and radical lady. She has been a facilitator and healer since she was a teenager. Practitioner of what she calls Shamanic Pelvic Floor Work, which is bodywork inside the vagina, and teaching people the skills to optimize thier healing, joy, and life.
We spoke a lot about MOONLODGING, do you know what that is?  I certainly did not, listen to show to get more info.
There has been a resurgence of Red Tents, Moon lodges, sacred bleeding ceremonies. There are intentional spaces to honor and discover the power of the menstrual time. They vary is format and belief structures.
The heart of what I do and what I offer and teach is ways to get connected to your body, and find your own way of listening to your body. As we do this there are themes that many women share. I will share a few tips on how to start your own sacred space for bleeding.
5 starter tips for you own "Moonlodge" 
#1) Lite a red candle or a candle inside a red tinted candle holder. Set an intention, such as: "I honor my body and this powerful time that mirrors all life giving cycles. I quiet with my breath to discover the wisdom that lies within."
Or more spiritually: "I honor the power of my body as a bridge between the world of spirit and the world of form. I am aware of the mysteries and wisdom of the spirit world, I open to all it has to teach me and the ways it can heal me."
#2) Set a timer and meditate for 20 minutes, 1 hr, or whatever you can or want
#3) Either you an old towel or purchase a beautiful thick red towel and sit on it allowing your body to "free bleed" flow without concern of mess, relax and give yourself permission to let go
#4) Tell your kids, DO NOT DISTURB unless urgent, put on a movie and go take a bath with candle light
#5) Put on a relaxing album and read or write starting with the prompt: "My sacred blood wants me to know..."
