Every week I bring you The Free Her Spirit Podcast. It’s where I get to talk about one of my favorite subjects: Feminine Spirituality.
Join me every Tuesday for interviews and personal narratives from women in all walks of life, including my own. Feminism meets the Divine. We are here to celebrate, we are here to share, we are here to bring more understanding and love into the world. Welcome!
Shila wants to live in a world where afternoon tea breaks are mandatory, mailboxes overflow with handwritten letters, and people wave hello to their neighbors. As a certified life coach and yoga teacher, she helps her clients find greater ease, joy, and connection by finally putting themselves first. You can connect with her on her website and follow her on Instagram.
This was a very different kind of interview for me because Shila and I are friends who connect pretty regularly. We wanted to have a conversation about our experiences with spirituality, connecting with people as adults, and intimidation/comparison during growth. This interview is much more of a give and take, and I feel like this is one of the most vulnerable and honest conversations I’ve had.
Vulnerability is hard for me, except with trusted friends. But in this conversation Shila and I dig deep into our insecurities and areas of life where we still don’t feel like the “cool kids”. Yes, high school analogies still apply. We’re both introverts and entrepreneurs so there’s a lot of material to work with. But I loved this conversation with her and the analogies (there are a lot!) and conclusions we come to. I feel like it applies to everyone, no matter what they want to do, whether it’s writing a book, changing careers, or everyone’s favorite, adulting. Ultimately it’s about the confidence to be yourself.

Thank you again to Shila for being on the show. So now we have to figure out what will happen for next week’s episode. Will it be a no episode week? Will there be a solocast? I haven’t decided yet. I do have more amazing interviews lined up for later, but next week anything could happen. Stay tuned and have a great week!
