Hosted by psychotherapist and yoga instructor Valerie Martin, this podcast features brief solo episodes as well as in-depth interviews with guests on a wide range of topics including psychology, spirituality, philosophy, social justice, and deep ecology. Valerie invites listeners to explore the intersection of their own personal/spiritual growth with broader societal and ecological issues, blending thoughtfu ...

Though I've only spent a few hours with Sara Schuster so far, I know it's just the beginning of what's sure to be a meaningful friendship. I first came across Sara last fall at the 2019 Folk Magic Fest in Nashville, and when I looked her up on Instagram afterwards and saw that part of her bio read "vegan plant witch," I was like "I need to know thi…
 
Despite how common symptoms of anxiety and depression are these days, there's a general lack of understanding about how to address them in a holistic (whole-person) way. About 1 in 5 American adults has an anxiety disorder (and that number appears to be climbing), and about 7% have experienced a depressive episode within the last year [1]— and that…
 
Whether you observe Thanksgiving or not, we can all use frequent reminders to zoom out and appreciate what we have... after all, it's a heck of a lot more peaceful to love what we have than it is to focus on/want what we don't have. After the intro portion of this episode (about 11 minutes in), I'm sharing with you a modified version of a wonderful…
 
When I first learned about Ashlee Piper and her book through a mutual friend, I was immediately smitten. A style-savvy, cruelty-free, snarky, smart-as-hell woman helping us all figure out how the hell to ACTUALLY live more sustainably? SIGN ME THE F UP. Okay, the interview itself was super fun and informative, so just trust me and listen— and now I…
 
What is your relationship with dance—and why? Sign up to here get my Mid-Week Magic email every Wednesday (yesterday's email inspired this episode!) Links to stuff mentioned in the episode are available over here!By Valerie K. Martin
 
I first fell for Amber Lilyestrom through listening to her podcast, and after attending her Ignite Your Soul Summit this April, I knew I wanted to work with her. I've been a part of Amber's Accelerator Mastermind since then, and while my own trajectory of growth and expansion during this time has been far from linear or what I would have described …
 
When I first came across Erin Stutland's work, it was that awesome feeling of, "Where has this been all my life?!" Like, WHAAAA, someone put together affirmations with aerobics?? SIGN ME THE F UP. I have been an aerobics girl since Margaret Richards and Denise Austin** back in the DAY— and as much shade as I like to throw on affirmations sometimes,…
 
In this solo episode, I'm taking you behind the scenes into my process of birthing Rooted Spirit Circle out into the world — my excitement, my belief in it, and also my fears and insecurities. If you've ever struggled with fear and doubt around stepping into the arena of your life in a bigger way or putting something you've created out into the wor…

Jenny Blake is an author, speaker, and business strategist based in New York City. As I describe in this episode, there was just something about Jenny's energy that captured me years ago when I first discovered her work, and I’ve been considered her a mentor (now friendtor!) ever since. Jenny has created a body of work around her concept, The Pivot…
 
Also, CONTENT WARNING on this one, friends. The subject matter deals with sexual abuse and suicide. Nancy handles these delicate topics like the pro that she is (and like someone who’s done a lot of therapy, which she has.) But please, listen to your intuition to decide whether these topics feel okay for you to listen to — and if not, skip the epis…
 
Anxiety sucks. But like a lot of other things that suck (February, bills, and grief, to name a few), it's unavoidable. When anxiety hits and you need to self-regulate, try one (or all) of the five strategies I share in this episode. This is a great one to save and come back to when you just need someone to walk you through this stuff instead of hav…
 
Hope y'all are having a lovely summer so far! In this short and sweet solo episode, I am getting very real with you about the space I've been in recently — and how I'm trying to hold myself in compassion and grace, while also knowing when I need to take action to shift things both on the day-to-day level, and at the deeper level. I also did a colle…
 
If you asked me to imagine my version of a "perfect" album, it would likely be a fusion of philosophical/psychological pondering, critical sociopolitical commentary, and killer beats with seductive vocal melodies that drip like honey. And not long ago, I realized that WTF, SUCH AN ALBUM WAS RECENTLY RELEASED, by the ridiculously multitalented TRISH…
 
Harris III is kiiind of a big deal — so I was pretty nervous about interviewing him. Then, when I showed up to his office all prepared with my huge bag of fancy new gear and couldn't get it to work like it had the night before, I was mortified. COOL. It really speaks to Harris's character that instead of being irritated or judgmental about my tech …
 
Drew Hicks is a triple threat: he's a talented writer and artist, a kick-ass speaker and storyteller, and a true Renaissance dude who could keep himself alive in the wilderness probably longer than anyone else I know. When I decided on the theme of storytelling for this month, I knew I had to interview Drew. I hope you love listening to this conver…
 
The theme for May is "story," and I'm excited to share the wonderful interviews I have for you this month with a few super talented storytellers, and to talk about the impact of stories on our lives. In the intro episode for this month, I'm riffing on: the stories we tell ourselves (our self-talk) how we construct our life narratives, and how that …

Jonathan Berry is the archetypal "work hard, play hard" dude. As I’ve gotten to know him over the past 5+ years, I’ve admired his balance of a joyful, lighthearted approach to life, and serious commitment to his family, friends, and work. When Jonathan started his real estate business and I saw the entrepreneurial side of him, I realized we had mor…
 
Everyone has that one friend who went away to study abroad in college and never really came back. Nicole Boriski is that friend for me. And while the selfish part of me would have liked to see more of her over the past decade, she’s been up to some pretty cool shit, and I’m glad her journeys have landed her where they have as a literal ambassador o…
 
I spent today in the initial phase of getting the next 3 months of episodes lined up (WOOO!!), and then dealing with a lot of tech headaches from transitioning my old blog to the new site. Since that is still very much under construction, you won't find detailed show notes for this episode until maybe next week. Damn. But if there's anything you're…
 
**Travis Cooper is one of those people you can tell is a dancer just be seeing him walk down the street. ** He carries himself with such presence, grace, and fierceness — and as I mention on the intro, has a truly magnetic (except LOL I said infectious because I couldn't think of the right word, but ehhh #getvaccinated 😜) personality to match. I wa…
 
In this solo podcast episode, I'm sharing with you one of my favorite blog posts I've written, in audio format for those of y'all like me who aren't doing too much reading online these days. If you're fascinated by topics like synchronicity, coincidences, manifesting, and the Law of Attraction, this episode is for you. Head over here for full show …
 
Lisa Olivera is not the therapist that's going to "help" you or fix your problems... and that's exactly why she's your dream therapist. When I started following Lisa on Instagram (@lisaoliveratherapy), I was immediately drawn to her energy and her content. We are definitely on the same wavelength in a lot of ways, which made for a really fun conver…

Hot damn, y'all. Words do not suffice to describe my interview with The Zen Social Worker, Timothy Gordon. This was probably my favorite conversation yet. Grab your notebook (or come back to the show notes after if you're driving), your tissues, and get ready for your brain to explode onto the ceiling as mine did during our call. (I am happy to rep…
 
There's just one woman in Nashville with a membership to the downtown Primings Cigar Lounge, and her name is Hayley Shelton. Founder of her own HR consulting group, Hayley isn't intimidated by the good ole' boys club — hell, while she's at it, she'll just create her own girls club. She came here to win — and she wants you to win, too. Basically, Ha…
 
Time for our monthly-ish solo pod, where I'm riffing on those big ideas, the hell-yes-quotes, the clichés that we're totally on board with in theory — and challenging all of us to grab those balloons, bring them down to real life, and assess whether we're actually living in alignment with our deepest-held truths. I would love to heart what resonate…
 
We hear about "going plant-based" for health all the time — it's probably up there with the Keto Diet as the biggest dietary trend right now, and The Economist called 2019 the year of the vegan. The environmental impact of eating meat and dairy has started to gain more traction in the media as well, with numerous recent studies agreeing that ditchi…
 
I have love for folks of alllll Enneagram types for different reasons, but put 2 sevens together and WEEEEEE, you get one hell of an energetic conversation. I first met PaQuita Pullen when we briefly overlapped working in residential mental health treatment, and she's now well on her way to getting her doctorate in Counselor Supervision and Educati…
 
SEASON 2 IS HEEEERE, and my Enneagram 7 ass is jumping up and down with excitement!! It is really taking a lot of effort not to completely abuse exclamation points right now. I have big plans for this year with the podcast, and I'm so grateful that you're joining me on this journey of exploring some of the most fascinating topics and ideas about be…
 
First of all, THANK YOU. Thank you for using some of your precious minutes to listen to this podcast when you have eighteen billion other phenomenal options. This little dream of mine feels like it's still in, um, its toddlerhood, but already it has been such a [insert self-mocking tone] labor of love. Really though. I'm honored that you are along …
 
Liz Talago is a SPITFIRE, y'all. When she's not riding her Harley through the streets of Nashville or the mountains of Montana, she's pushing the "acceptable" boundaries of sexual expression as a model of boutique lingerie; she's advocating for women in the workplace; she's changing the way women think about money and their earning potential. And I…
 
Megan Bruneau is one of those women with a résumé that should make you instantly dislike her because she’s so g*ddamn successful (and gorgeous). And you want to be like JUST. STOP IT. But then you can’t, because she’s actually really fucking great. Yes, she writes for Forbes and is BFF with Deepak Chopra (or, ok, at least she interviewed him on her…
 
Short and sweet solo podcast time! In this episode, I share a few of my most favorite recent things, and then 5 lessons I've learned about the challenges of friendship in adulthood. For full show notes including links to stuff I mention in the episode, head here!By Valerie Martin, LCSW, RYT
 
Most of the people I know who love what they do didn't get there in a linear way. And of course, many of us are still figuring it out and iterating, reformulating our professional lives as our skills and interests evolve. Liz Ward is a shining example of this, and she now dedicates her work to helping others do the same, with her coaching business,…
 
Lauren Martin is a force of nature, y'all. In this episode, we talk about everything from emo music to her transition to Orthodox Christianity to what it means to embrace and validate the idea that "if it matters to YOU, then it matters." You're not gonna want to miss this one! About Lauren Martin, LPC-MHSP Lauren Ruth Martin is a psychotherapist a…
 
Tina Pocha is one of those women you lose track of time talking to. The wisdom she shared about the process of self reinvention, but learning about her life story and perspective was just as interesting. I know you’ll dig this interview, and since I’m a little brain-dead at the moment, there’s not much I want to say about it other than GO LISTEN! L…

How often do you meet a smart-as-hell MD who's into chakra healing, tarot, and intuitive brainstorming sessions, and is not Deepak Chopra? Over the past six days, I have come to know one of these unicorns, and her name is Dr. Allison Devers. I'm gonna keep these show notes pretty short and sweet, because I'm still at the training where I met Alliso…
 
Whether you already love the tarot, know nothing about it, or are "tarot curious" like I've been in recent years, you're gonna dig this interview with Krystal of Power Femme Tarot. If you've been listening to the show, you know that I'm getting increasingly interested in the tarot as a tool for self reflection and accessing intuitive guidance. I've…
 
You guys are in for a treat with episode 11... ...and not just because the first 90 seconds of the intro is live footage of me freaking the fuck out about just discovering a giant spider near me. I kept it in for your entertainment, and because being in the wild outdoors is a very appropriate introduction for today's guest, Rebecca Trinidad. Rebecc…
 
Tierra B is one of those people that magnetizes any room she walks into. I met Tierra at the Prison Yoga Project training in Nashville a couple months ago, and have loved following her online since then. With a bachelors in Crime, Law, and Justice, and a masters in Forensics, Tierra started her career in federal law enforcement. Eventually, patriar…

Y’all are about to be shook when you hear that my guest for this episode is, wait for it… a YOGA TEACHER. Why yes, I am hilarious since 4 of my first 6 guests have been yoga teachers — but, hallooo, so much more than only that, and each one a gem in her own right. This week’s guest is Emmy Singer, founder of Inner Light Yoga studio and one of my bi…
 
I recently had the privilege of interviewing Sarah Jane Chapman, a massage therapist, yoga teacher, and heart-of-gold human who I am lucky to call a friend. In the conversation, Sarah Jane and I delved into: * why she believes “yoga always wins” and how her personal practice and teaching have evolved * how getting diagnosed with diabetes further co…
 
Y'ALL. Get ready to hold onto your f-ing hats, because my guest on the pod this week is the fiercely loving and vibrant Karen Kenney. I have so many things I want to say about Karen and what she shared on this episode, but rather than you sit here and read this, just listen and hear it for yourself! The time during our conversation FLEW by, and eve…
 
It's time for the roughly-monthly solo episode! I'm going nature again on this one, but I promise not all the solo episodes will focus on nature stuff. In this episode, I talk about forest bathing — what it really is, the benefits, and my personal experience with it. For full show notes including articles and quotes mentioned in the episode, head o…
 
You guys. Last weekend, I watched a movie that left my jaw on. the. FLOOR. Afterwards I said that watching it felt like someone had reached into my chest, ripped out my heart, and gave it a giant hug. So many tears, but not necessarily sad ones. My friend Annie watched the same film over the weekend, and we both felt so passionate about it that we …
 
If you enjoy that feeling of vacillating between laughing out loud and sinking into profound thoughts like 20 times within a single hour, episode 3 with Laura Long is for you. Laura is a therapist for women and couples in the Greenville, SC area, and chief badass (my words, not hers) at Your Badass Therapy Practice, where she helps other therapists…
