Description

Conversation is the thread that helps tether and inspire relationships. It doesn’t have to be fancy or grand; but, it does need to be real. Inspiring conversation often comes from the ordinary moments in life when stories are shared and hearts are laid bare. Join Amy Vallejo, founder & co-collaborator of Social Creative Workshops, as she chats to extraordinary women sharing, teaching, and learning through the conversations we have. ​This podcast is for all the makers; artisan makers, business makers, movement makers, homemakers, mess makers, idea makers. What we do is a contributing portion of who we are, but there is so much to all of us, isn't there? If you are like me, the stories are gold and connect us so much deeper. WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO TEACH, WE ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO LEARN. Welcome to our conversation, we’re glad you’re here!

We are speaking with Coach Mindy Lee Irvine about fueling our Mind, Body & Spirit. Each of us has our own journey with body positivity and esteem.

This is a 2 part series, starting with lessons...
This is the story of 3 women, with different bodies, and different life experiences, coming together to get real...and naked. Real naked.Have you ever been to a Korean Spa (or some European Spa) that *surprise* encourages (or requires) dropping your robe? It is the most terrifying, exhilerating and liberating feeling. I, personally, cannot recommend it enough. While the trepidation has decreased over the years, it still exists-and maybe is part of the brave th...
Is that right?Yep. This is another wave of my personal reflection story, as I figured out the "mind, body, spirit" relationship layers of pain and beauty. And, yes, Naked Spa-which was a part of my brave therapy to feeling confident in my own skin during a time of extreme self consciousness-especially around the people who knew me the most.In this episode I speak about the investigative work I did surrounding mindset, body image, self esteem, and emotional behav...
Sometimes the hardest struggles in life unveil the most beauty and rich truth. This is the case in my life, and especially most recently in the last year. Like you, I have had my body change over the years. I've seen it change and re-arrange due to hormones, progression of age, medical symptoms or side-effects, exercise exertion, pregnancies, you name it! I've lost hair, gained scars, added weight, blurred vision, limped from aches, swoll...

I first heard Jessica Gallo playing alongside another harpist on a dark, rainy winter night in December. It was my first sound bath experience, and it did not disappoint. It was at the height of a very low time for me, and I was feeling a deep need in my body for calm and stillness-almost hibernation?Jessica is a professional musician, and a Certified Music Practitioner. She creates beautiful environments for people to relax their body, unlace tension and stress, and ...
This isn't the first time I've had to come back to self. It's not the first time I lost me, fell deep in a hole or felt like a shell of myself. Not the first time I've had to fight my way back, reorganize priorities to heal, or depend on others to function. Whether postpartum, or craniotomy, or chronic health diagnosis, or ...the latest blip in my story that ran for 6 months (and counting) starting summer of 2022.What do you do when you've been faced with crisis or chronic ...
Listen in on this powerful conversation, but also bring your eyes. Sit down, go for a walk, or get your hands in the dirt while you give yourself the spaciousness to slow down and see beauty, and the colors of beauty. I had the opportunity to speak with Lorene Edwards Forkner, of A Handmade Garden, about her life as a horticulturist and horticolorist , her love of art, gardening, and the tenderness she learned for herself and others during the writing of her 5th book, Color...
There's a magical farm on Bainbridge Island that lives by the slogan "Your food has a story". I love this adage because I think there is always more than meets the eye. Any great experience will tell you that. This charming, historic farmhouse delivers the story from the gardens, the farmers, the farm to table community dinners, their CSA boxes, and the onsite bakery. Many hands and hearts caring about guest and ground. Let's meet the husband and wife du...
I never knew I had so many questions about cherries. Not just any cherries. Plump local cherries, hand-plucked from a local orchard and bathed in a proper, traditional Italian recipe of maraschino (maraskeeno) liqueur. Sought after cherries for any craft cocktail enthusiast. I am, of course, speaking of Orasella Maraschino Cherries -a beloved favorite for most bartenders, bars and food & wine shops. Anne SanGiovanni, the co-founder and owner, speaks to...

Then, add Jen Doak, the owner and queen of hospitality, for the cherry on top. I'm speaking of Seattle's charming neighborhood gastro-pub, Brimmer & Heeltap, which has expanded it's corner spot to include Red Arrow Coffee and Half Seas Wine club &...
Seattle's El Gaucho Steakhouse is a long time upscale dining staple, or as they call it " fine dining of a bygone era". The tuxedoed staff, the table side flambé'd desserts, the dimly lit intimate seating, and the soft trickle of the piano keys set the stage for a luxurious dining experience that feels like you were transported right back into the nostalgically swanky rat pack era. Theirs is a place for fancy celebration or to make an moment worthy of an occasi...
I guess we ended Season 1? Ha. Consider our last 3 months a long intermission before Season 2.For the last few months, we took an abrupt pause to get through the roller coaster that comes with sudden medical news. This rolled right into an epic metaphorical and literal sacred journey on the Camino de Santiago in Spain, then ended with a radiation treatment to kill off the tumor that came back after 10 years. (thankful for best case scenario modern medicine and much smalle...

Yes, I said exposing. That's how I feel right now. This could be one of my most vulnerable episodes, and I dragged another Enneagram 8 into the mix. Solidarity. Thanks to London Tierney from Particle Goods, you get a real look into some of the healthy and unhealthy behavior tendencies on an Enneagram 8. We talk about everything from the struggle to carve out white space, our trust issues, and how we'd much prefer the "rip the bandaid off" met...
