Welcome to the Warrior Goddess Revolution podcast, inspired by my bestselling book Warrior Goddess Training.
Let the inner revolution begin.
Let’s get free. Free of shame. Free of fear. Free of limitations. Free to choose. Free to be the brightest, most audacious, brilliant, creative, present, connected, spacious warrior goddess you can be.
Tune in to be inspired to celebrate your freedom… The freedom to make mistakes without punishing yourself endlessly. The freedom to laugh when you take something personally. The freedom to embody the patience you need to rewire your thinking. The freedom to do your best, without judgment. The freedom to find stillness in the chaos. The freedom to love yourself fully. The freedom to soar.
From my revolutionary heart to yours. Let’s get free and give back.
During this episode of the Warrior Goddess Revolution, HeatherAsh and her best friend Autumn talk about their days being reporters, building community-centered media, and intimate stories about parenting and mental health.
Autumn Labbe-Renault has been described by many as “relentlessly creative.” Whether she’s steering the ship at Davis Media Access as executive director of this nonprofit community media center in Davis, CA; documenting the effects of the pandemic locally through her weekly radio show the “COVID-19 Community Report” on KDRT95.7FM, or running her Etsy business, Autumn Light Designs, creativity is a hallmark of her thinking and her work. She boils this down to “I connect people and make things, and I get stuff done.” davismedia.org; KDRT.org; https://www.etsy.com/shop/AutumnLightDesigns
“Love yourself so much that when someone mistreats you, you recognize it.” This quote on the Warrior Goddess Inspiration page as been shared almost 10,000 times and liked over 27,000 times. It's one of our most popular memes. While this statement is true, it is also incomplete. Because it does not include the person who is probably mistreating you the most.
Here is what we ponder in today's episode: Where are you mistreating yourself through self-judgment, comparison, sabotage, procrastination, pushing, overeating, addictions, overthinking, cycling or repressing your emotions, disliking your body, or any other ways that you abandon yourself? And how do you acknowledge how you mistreat yourself while also making clear, skillful, calm, fierce, firm, loving boundaries with others who are mistreating you?
In this episode, I talk with Qi Dada about her local community in Austin, her passion around spirituality and music, and the sweet spot where these things meet. We have an epic conversation on the evolutionary process that happens when we lean into the Mystery and live life fully in our being as visionaries celebrating, dismantling, and morphing. She also shares about their new album, Flowers for the Living and a sneak peek of her favorite song, Magic, where I got to sing back-up.

In this episode, I share about the coming of Spring, gardening, and new beginnings. It's time for us to expand our pot so we have space to grow.
In this delightful, heart-felt conversation Marie and I talk about bringing your gifts to work, listening to your calling, learning to let go, and holding space for yourself when things get hard.
My journey began with western medicine. After grueling years in medical school, I became an anesthesiologist, hoping to bring the peace and healing I felt called to bring. My drive for work was relentless, and I built a career many would be proud of—but inside I felt dead. I had given up personal relationships and my spiritual health, and my mind and body were paying for it.
My quest for self-discovery saved me. I embraced a new calling as a shaman, energy healer, and mentor to others seeking a similar path to enlightenment. I had a deep scientific understanding of what it meant to be human. I’ve studied and cared for the body for over 20 years. But opening myself to the power of the mind, the beauty of intuition, and the all-encompassing power of love changed me. I stepped into my destiny as a healer and embraced my potential beyond the confines of the mainstream.
Ever have that feeling of slipping and sliding in your life and not able to get going? Today I explored the parallels between my recent seriously stuck in the snow adventure and how to gain traction in our own lives. Hint: slow and steady.
"You know how every once in a while you do something and the little voice inside says, 'There. That’s it. That’s why you’re here.' …and you get a warm glow in your heart because you know it’s true? Do more of that."
I absolutely adore Jacob Nordby. He has a rare combination of skills: he is funny as hell, brave in his vulnerability, and humble of his immense talent. And did I mention funny as hell?
In this episode we talk about Jacob's creative journey, discovering his own trauma, the power of simplicity, how transformation sneaks up on you, and his brand new book, The Creative Cure: How Finding and Freeing Your Inner Artist Can Heal Your Life (with a foreword by his friend, artist Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way.)

This time of year, when we are between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox (in the northern hemisphere), in the earth-based traditions of my ancestors was a time of reckoning and drawing on your reserves. Winter still has a strong hold on the land, even as we turn towards the Spring. At this time we stop to consider: what food do we need to save to get us through until the next planting and harvest cycles? How do we sustain ourselves through the darkness to come? The light may be growing each day, but how do we make it through the cold and barren time?
This show, recorded on Candlemas, explores the three qualities of the Goddess Brigid: smith crafting, poetry, and healing and how they can help us keep our inner fire burning bright.
Being a Warrior Goddess entrepreneur can be challenging, especially when women feel threatened and turn to competing with or criticizing each other. But women support women lifts everyone up. In this episode I talk with my friend and stylist Heather Caswell of The Wardrobe in Davis as she introduces me to my favorite clothing designer, Cara Ucci and jewelry creatress Paloma. For years now Heather has been my angel of clothing and jewelry, and an important advocate for local female clothing and jewelry designers in California. Together the four of us explore beauty, style, shining brightly, and doing what you love.
I got stuck. Here is how I unstuck myself. Let's explode the myths of perfectionism so we can move past procrastination, stuckness, and the fear of doing it wrong.
