Sing Stories with Jeff Leinaweaver, Storyteller

07-12-17   Sing Stories with Jeff Leinaweaver, Storyteller

Once, there was a way to sing the stories of our ancestors and honor the living inner worlds of our imaginations; a way of bringing wisdom, connectedness and engagement to the greater human tribe. These ways of telling story, particularly of the oral tradition, have offered breadcrumbs of paradox and a way to remember that storytelling is not just a form of communication – it’s auniquely human practice. ~Jeff Leinaweaver, Storyteller

Feminism in All of Its Forms

07-04-17   Feminism in All of Its Forms

Join Chloe Bailey, sophomore pre-med student at Washington College and Lora Cheadle, as they discuss feminism in all of its forms. Feminism today looks radically different than the feminist movement of the 60’s or 70’s, which looked vastly different than the suffragette movement. Not only does “being a feminist” mean different things depending on the era, it means different things depending on the part of the world one is talking about. Today’s feminists are more concerned with the underrepresented voices of all humans, regardless of gender, and are expanding the movement to encompass equality for all. As simple and as uncontroversial as this may appear to be on its face, in practice, its quite confusing! Why? Because different people desire different things and because there is no one-right-way of doing things. As Chloe explains, when confronted by a classmate who thinks feminism is a dirty word, how can she honor his belief to dislike feminists, but at the same time spread light, love an information about the plight of women, who truly don’t have the same opportunities as men?

Chloe Bailey is a French and PreMedical student at Washington College in Chestertown, MD. An aspiring OB/GYN, she is very active in feminist think tanks and activist groups both on and off campus.

Re-Ignite Your Radiance, a Self Care Immersion for the Soul

06-28-17   Re-Ignite Your Radiance, a Self Care Immersion for the Soul

Have you ever felt overwhelmed, tired, under appreciated or irritated? Have you struggled with feelings of anger or frustration or cried at the drop of a hat? These are all signs of burnout. It is very common for women to struggle with burnout, because as nurturers, we say yes to taking care of our families, friends and our careers. In today’s over-scheduled world, this leaves little time to take care of ourselves. But unless burnout is addressed, the symptoms slowly become worse and can eventually manifest in other ways, such as physical ailments. Join Lora, as she discusses burnout with Jess Bonasso and DesiRae Kraft, two self-care experts who lead retreats specifically designed to re-fuel women suffering burnout. These ladies share tips and techniques for addressing burnout, such as setting better boundaries, and give tips on practicing realistic self-care. Better yet, listeners receive a FREE self-care starter kit as well as a FREE self-care tool kit when they sign up for DesiRae’s and Jess’s newsletters!

Jess Bonasso, also known as The Self Care Goddess, is a burnout recovery expert, coach, author, & professional speaker who helps modern-day, high-reaching super heroes “struggling to juggle” it all break free from sabotage that leads to burnout, re-ignite their greatness, & elevate their life without sacrificing their soul, sanity, or health! Much of the work that Jess does with clients has the power to release & heal saboteurs like the ones listed above at a cellular level using a very powerful form of cellular release therapy called The Journey Method®. She was trained as an accredited Journey Practitioner in 2007 & has been using this powerful work with clients ever since. To learn more about the powerful & healing benefits of The Journey Method AND Jess’s personal healing & spiritual journey with this work, visit her website at
