{Podcast 014} Tabitha Jayne: using nature to heal emotional blocks and build your trust muscle

Tabitha Jayne

Tabitha Jayne is an eco-psychologist, author, speaker and the founder of The Nature Process – an online program that teaches you how to tap into the power of nature so that you can discover the power and potential of your natural self.

As you’ll hear in this interview, Tabi has endured some extremely dark experiences throughout her life — severe ill health, bullying, childhood abuse, rape, and the death of her younger brother in a car accident — more darkness than any woman should have to experience in a lifetime.

Through it all, Tabi has relied on the healing power of nature to release her trauma. In fact, it was a profound awakening experience with an old oak tree that propelled Tabi into a period of deep healing and spiritual growth, eventually leading her to uncover and develop The Nature Process.

This interview catches Tabi in the midst of another profound awakening.  Struggling with a desire for validation and approval in her own business, Tabi has deep dived into the discomfort, uncovering a well of trauma she thought had been healed long ago. Tabi openly shares how she has used her own nature process to heal this trauma and come out the other side with a new and more aligned business vision —  to have the earth viewed as a living, sentient being.

What I love about Tabi is that she’s not afraid to explore the darkness. So often these days we feel the pressure to be happy all the time, while darkness or shadow work is considered shameful. Tabi is not afraid to go deep to the root of an emotional trauma and still, despite all the pain she’s experienced, she has an unwavering ability to trust in the process and timing of life.

Why is it so hard to love myself?

Why is it so hard to love myself 2

I remember the first time someone called me fat. I wasn’t more than six or seven years old. At the time I don’t think I really even knew what it meant but I knew it was bad. That I was bad. That I wasn’t good enough.

I remember the first time I went on a diet. I was 15. As the weight dropped off, my apparent love for myself grew exponentially. Then I gained the weight back and I hated myself again. Hated myself into a dark depression

“You’re fat” became the insult of choice. Family members, girls at school, even strangers would use those words to hurt me. And it did. An arrow direct to the bulls-eye of my heart.

I don’t remember a time since when I haven’t been on a diet.

It’s not just the weight though. Over the years I’ve suffered from severe cystic acne followed closely by  adult acne (and the scarring that comes with it), high-school bullying, depression, low self-worth, hormonal hair, weird skin rashes, hyper-emotional sensitivity, confusion about my sexuality, binge eating, ongoing back pain, drug and alcohol abuse,  and a myriad of other stuff I’m not comfortable sharing.

Learning to love myself feels like a bloody big job. Continue Reading →


{Podcast 013} Sarah Durham Wilson, divine feminine artist and writer

Sarah Durham Wilson

Sarah Durham Wilson used to be a rock journalist interviewing stars for top magazines like Rolling Stone and GQ. Then her non-stop party girl lifestyle took its toll.

Burnt out and broken-hearted, Sarah fell to her knees beside her bed and begged for change – or death.

Hitting rock bottom sparked a monumental transformation that has seen Sarah emerge as a deeply wise divine feminine writer and artist. She now writes under her pen name Doitgirl, and also runs powerful courses and retreats dedicated to healing the self to heal the world.

Sarah’s journey has been bloody hard and she’s not pretending she has it all figured out yet. She speaks with raw honesty in this podcast about the messiness of transformation, in a way that is deeply comforting.

If you’ve ever felt like you’re too messy, too out of control, or too close to rock bottom, this frank and forthright podcast is for you. Continue Reading →


What the heck is oil pulling + why it’s awesome

What is oil pulling and why it's awesome

Here’s a thing that sounds completely disgusting … and pretty much is the first time you try it. (But stick with me, kid, it’s worth it.)

Oil pulling. Have you heard of it?

It’s the morning practice of popping a tablespoon of oil in your mouth and then swilling it around for 20 entire minutes. Gross, right? Yep. Pretty much. The first time I tried this, I literally gagged on the oil.

So why bother? Continue Reading →


{Podcast 012} Marisa Lynch: fashion blogger, author and New Dress A Day founder

New Dress A Day founder Marisa Lynch

A few years back, Marisa Lynch lost her magazine job to the global financial crisis and fell into depression.

Then, inspired by the film Julie and Julia, she turned to a passion she’d long neglected – sewing. Marisa challenged herself to make 365 upcycled dresses in 365 days, spending only a dollar a day.

Her New Dress A Day blog quickly went viral, and Marisa was asked to appear on television, was interviewed by the likes of The New York Times, and made dresses for celebrities. She even secured a book deal.

But what strikes me most about Marisa’s story is how she remained completely unattached to these outcomes, even amid all the success.

She says she wasn’t fussed about how popular her blog was, or if people liked the dresses she made. She simply did it because it made her feel good. That was the anchor she kept coming back to. That was her measure of success. Continue Reading →
