I’m super excited about today’s post; it’s an extra-special one.
Why? Because today, Rachel Sizemore, a good friend of mine, is putting something AMAZING into the world.
It’s called Ripen, and it’s the juiciest new podcast out there. I LOVE Rachel’s ‘why’ in creating it. In her words:
I am on a journey to shift the foundation of my life from one of obligation to one of desire. I hope to connect to myself, to discover my desire, and to move from trust rather than fear.
I hope to ripen into my true power as a woman, a healer and a leader.
I hope to inspire you to discover what ripening is for you.
Since Rachel and I talk weekly, I’ve had an insider’s view into her process of birthing this podcast. And let me tell you: this girl is COMMITTED to showing up for her listeners as her true self. This isn’t one of those “I’m an expert telling you what you do” podcasts. It’s more like, “I’m an explorer, trying to find my way in the world. Want to join me on the journey?”
Rachel was kind enough to let me listen to her first few episodes in advance, so I’m confident in telling you that they rock.
Here’s a taste:
Episode 1: A vulnerable (and very relatable) introduction of Rachel’s intention with Ripen.
Episode 2: An interview with yours truly. I’ve been on a few podcasts, but this is my favorite to date. I think it has to do with the fact that Rachel knows me well, so the conversation just….flowed. Full disclosure: when I listened to it later, I found myself amazed by some of the things I said. “Really, that wisdom came out of my mouth?” Love it when that happens 🙂
Episode 3: Rachel dives into desire. A topic that seems simple, but is often anything but!
Episode 4: Ooh-la-la – this one is super sexy. Rachel interviews Kit Murray Maloney, founder of O’Actually, about why pleasure matters, why we shouldn’t feel guilty about it, and how to start adding more pleasure into your life right now.
Intrigued? How could you not be, right? Give it a listen, using the links above or by searching ‘Rachel Sizemore’ or ‘Ripen’ on iTunes or Stitcher…and let me know what you think.
To ripening into our power!
