Today I’m sharing with you a very special episode that features myself as a guest on Highly Optimized, a podcast hosted by none other than Ryan Sprague!
If you want to hear more from Ryan, please tune into the two other amazing shows we did together: Episode 94, Using Plant Medicine And Cannabis For Increased Consciousness, Connection And Lifestyle Balance (Part I) and the more recent Episode 103, Living AS IF: The Power of Choice, Radical Ownership and Being Your Own Biggest Cheerleader With Ryan Sprague (Part II). Ryan is the founder and co-owner of Highly Optimized, which includes a podcast that he hosts in addition to his other show, This One Time On Psychedelics. I highly encourage you to check out Ryan’s programs and podcasts! He is truly a wealth of information.
On this episode, we talk about the personal experiences that led us to the field of holistic health and how the Pain Teacher supported our understandings of the human body, psyche and basic components required to live a balanced and healthy life. Ryan asks me about working together with Paul Chek as his longest-standing female client, and I share some of the most significant lessons I’ve come to realize on our journey together. We also discuss self love, radical ownership, people-pleasing, the undeniable evidence that expectations determine our reality and the role that exercise plays in our lives as a tool to maintain inner balance and protect from burnout.
This episode is packed full of ideas to motivate you forward on your life’s journey. If you enjoyed it, please subscribe, leave a review and share on Instagram (tag me @FitAmyTV and I’ll share too!). Your feedback and support means the world to me. Thank you for joining the Awakening Aphrodite journey!
