29 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Conversation on the War on Drugs and Public Health (Molly Welch-Marahar)

March 30, 2017

I met Molly Welch-Marahar working on another project and I was fascinated and we had such a great conversation and determined that we had a lot in common. 

Molly s a person in long-term recovery from intravenous heroin and cocaine addiction. She has been homeless, in jail and hospitalized because of her disease, and these experiences have instilled in her a passion to advocate with and for others like her, most of whom don’t have access to adequate long-term, abstinence based treatment. She is now a mother, a partner, a daughter, a friend and a mentor. Molly is also a graduate student at the University of Michigan’s Ford School of Public Policy where she is pursuing a career in advocacy and scholarship. Molly is currently employed as a Recovery Support Specialist for Dawn Farm, a treatment center for those suffering from alcoholism and addiction, where she can stay close to people like her. Molly’s life mission is to work to liberate addicted people from a cycle of marginalization perpetuated by the political economy of pharmaceuticals.

27 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Conversation with the Pastor of the Resistance (John Pavlovitz)

March 16, 2017

From the first time I read one of John Pavlovitz's pieces about the pro-life debate, I knew I needed to know him because he's an incredible human being that gets it. He says the hard things in a poignant fashion and is a weaver of words. I decided he would be my mentor, whether he knew it or not! It is great to walk and work shoulder to shoulder with someone like him who is affirming and inclusive all while he's able to speak up and out about the very things that pull darkness over us.

John Pavlovitz is a pastor and blogger from Wake Forest, NC. In the past three years his blog Stuff That Needs To Be Said has reached a diverse audience of millions of people. A 20-year veteran in the trenches of local church ministry, John's mission is to help the Church become a more compassionate, loving environment for all people. He serves at North Raleigh Community Church and his first book called A Bigger Table, is due in September 2017.

Kerry Connelly is a soul sister from another mister. We have yet to meet, but I have a feeling we will...soon. The Divine allowed our paths to cross several weeks ago as we were on a call learning about an organization called Brand New Congress. I asked a question and voiced a concern or two and then several speakers later she spoke up and I interrupted the call to say, "BNC, please connect us!" And they did and here we are.

Kerry Connelly is a Certified Christian Life Coach and Human Behavior Specialist with over 25 years experience in corporate, non-profit and entrepreneurship. She writes a popular blog called Jerseygirl, Jesus and in January of 2016, she founded DoveWriters, the Christian Writer's Incubator.

24 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Conversation on Romance & Adventure (Morgan Day Cecil)

February 23, 2017

I connected with Morgan Day Cecil in person about three or four years ago at the annual, global dōTERRA essential oil convention in Salt Lake City, UT. It was love at first sight! She's amazingly strong and free.

Morgan is a mother, wife, yogi, Italy lover and advocate for feminine wholeness. She is an Embodiment Coach, but what she really enjoys doing and is passionate about is help spiritually passionate women create lives of true romance and meaningful adventure. Morgan teaches them how to Breathe with Love and find their way back to their own hidden wholeness. Through coaching and workshops and online courses she gives women the tools to access their essential feminine wisdom and presence, so that they can heal the wounds that have kept them unfulfilled. She leads retreats around the world (returning to Italy again and again because --- Italy!) and she holds space in the Sophia Sessions for other women to learn, grow and be encouraged on this path of feminine wholeness.
