In this conversation, Alexandra Pope and Sjanje Hugo Wurlitzer of Red School talk about a different perspective of menopause as not a physical betrayal but rather an awakening to new and different dimensions of you.

Our bodies hold so much wisdom and through our menstrual cycle and menopause, we can tap into our innate wisdom to create sustainably vibrant health, unlock our true potential, and reclaim our natural powers as a woman.

This is an enlightening episode that is sure to leave you thinking very differently about the natural cycles of your body.

Dare to Follow Your Passion In Mid-Life

Dare to Follow Your Passion In Mid-Life

October 14, 2021

Is midlife too late to find success in following your passion? Can you be a compelling singer/ songwriter and a gynecologist at the same time? Today's guest shows us that you absolutely can and it's never too late.

In this episode, I speak with Dr. Kristina Dervaitis about daring to follow your passion in mid-life.  Kristina is a board-certified OB/GYN turned singer-songwriter in a transition that she describes as both terrifying and exhilarating. With a very busy and successful medical career, Kristina scaled back to follow her inner nudges to return to her childhood musical roots.  When she made the shift to part-time practice in order to spend more time with her husband, neither of them had any idea that their shared passion for music would result in the birth brand new album of songs that Kristina describes as midlife anthems. Check out her website to hear her new single.

If there’s is a passion or purpose that is calling you you’re going to want to listen in to this inspiring episode.

Finding Your Passion and Purpose at Camp with Tammi Leader

Finding Your Passion and Purpose at Camp with Tammi Leader

September 29, 2021
Who wants to infuse friendships, life’s grounding lessons, and gather around a campfire in the spirit of fun to (re)discover who you want to be as you "grow up"?  Does such a space even exist?  The answer is yes. 
Tammi Leader, after a 30-year career as an award-winning television producer, found herself a divorced single mom, burned out and no longer feeling fulfilled by her career and she knew it was time to reimagine her life. 
Remembering back to the fun and community of her childhood camp days Tammi founded Campowerment, a transformational playground for women to learn, connect and grow together on purpose through a camp experience. 
Campowerment provides the opportunity for women to find their passion and purpose, and step into a power that they may not even realize they have.  
Tammi believes that the world is waiting for all of us.  Every one of us has a superpower that we can get back if we get unstuck.
In this episode, we discuss how women from all walks of life come together to find themselves and get the support they need to live their best lives
Tune in to hear about Tammi Leader's expert-led community, Campowerment, and connect on purpose.
Tammi Leader
Founder of Campowerment
“I left my TV career with two Emmys and a dream: to build communities of happy, empowered people ready to propel themselves forward.”
In 2013, after three decades as an award-winning Television Producer, Tammi Leader took a huge leap of faith, stepping out of the TV Studio and back into nature to create Campowerment, the purveyor of live and transformative, expert-led experiences, powered by play!
After moving from her hometown of Miami to Los Angeles to develop a health & wellness show for Telepictures (Warner Brothers) designed to help people live life bigger and better, with help from game-changing experts in every area of growth, Tammi was at the top of her career, and yet deeply unhappy. At 53, she set out to find that “happy place” within herself, so she went back to her roots…to the place of her happiest childhood memories: summer camp.
In partnership with her College Professor mother (Grandy) and Brand Strategist oldest daughter (Chelsea), and the support of her entire family, Tammi created a new concept, live and off-air: a sleepaway-camp-inspired experience where grown-up women (like her) could re-ignite their lives.
Enter: Campowerment, where Tammi invited in the power players who had impressed and inspired her during her many years at The TODAY Show, NBC News, CBS News, America’s Most Wanted, and EXTRA TV. 
This new passion project, which became a business in 2013 when O Magazine named it one of the 50 things that made Oprah say, “Wow,” was the culmination of Tammi’s highest skills and most beloved concepts.
From the beginning, Campowerment has been featured in Forbes, Fortune, and Parade Magazines, the TODAY Show, CNN, The Hollywood Reporter, The LA Times, Miami Herald, Reader’s Digest, and lots s’more.
Tammi is currently working on a book about resilience and the power of kindred connection. We think her story has only just begun.

Boundaries Will Set You Free

Boundaries Will Set You Free

May 6, 2021

I don't know about you but up until a few years ago, no one was talking about boundaries, let alone how to set and hold them. It just wasn’t a thing.  And because of that, I like many of us fell into the trap of trying to do everything for everyone. For many of us saying yes is a knee-jerk reaction that comes so naturally but often leads us to overwhelm and sometimes resentment.  Been there!  In today's episode, I chat with Master Coach and bestselling author, Nancy Levin about the importance of boundaries and putting ourselves first on our list.  

Nancy provides powerful insight and new ways to look at setting boundaries that can dramatically change your life. If you are exhausted from your yes', you'll definitely want to give this podcast a listen and I'd encourage you to pick up a copy of her book "Setting Boundaries Will Set You Free”.  It's full of practical advice and tips for setting effective boundaries. A great read!

Aligning With Your Worth

April 29, 2021

In this episode, we get a little bit woo-woo in this beautiful discussion with Tara Kinden, Coach, Founder and CEO of Worth Camp™ and host of The Worthy Woman Collective podcast.

The heart of this podcast is about guiding women back into their worth. We dive into the importance of learning how to rest more and to trust our own intuition. Did you know that all women are creative but how we each express it is different? Discovering our version of creativity is important because creativity and self-worth are tied together. By allowing our creativity to flourish, it allows our worthiness to expand exponentially!

Tara is an expert in Human Design readings. Human Design allows us to get to know our true selves, who we are and what we’re here to do. I've had my chart done with Tara and we discuss my experience and how it helped me take back my power and connect with my deepest desires.

Prepare to have your mind awaken in this powerful podcast.
