Welcome to the Rebel Buddhist™ Podcast, where I help you free your mind so you can free your life. This podcast is for the rebellious ones. The wild people. I share my stories and what I’ve learned about being a rebel soul who wants to tame her mind…but not her life. It’s led to plenty of adventures and misadventures. I’ve learned tons of tools that combine Buddhist psychology, real-world mindfulness, cognitive coaching, and modern brain science – sort of like if Buddhism and science had a love child. I want to share them with you as we walk this path together. I’m not sharing this as a dharma teacher, but as a fellow practitioner with some street cred. Welcome to my world.

Ep. 143: Your Wild Mind – The South + Wounded Children

In this episode, we’re continuing our Wild Mind series and diving into the sensuous, embodied, and emotive energy of the South. I explore how the South helps us tap into our authentic, wild, animal knowing of who we are and why we are here, and the deep knowing of our belonging on this planet. I also introduce the subpersonalities of the South – our Wounded Children, which often have us in a place of emotional reactivity, fear of being abandoned, and disconnected from our authentic self. I’ll also give you some practical ways we can integrate the qualities of the South through simple practices and reflections.
