EP 26: Life after loss: Using creativity to heal your heart

ep 26 life after loss.png

In this week's solo cast I'm talking my recent loss and how I used creativity to heal my heart. I share the mantra I used to guide the journey and why I think it's such an important outlet to transmute our pain. So that we may make peace with what is and see it as a chance to celebrate the life lived and not the life loss.

EP 25: Finding abundance inside adversity.

In this week's solo cast I'm talking  finding abundance inside adversity. 

I'm sharing a new practice I've been using and how I used it to get through an unexpected family situation. I also talk about the importance of perspective and the difference it makes when facing tough times. 

Perfect for anyone wanting to explore or deepen their practice with abundance especially in the face of adversity. Plus, we also chat about my most recent podcast decision and how you can be part of the fun!

EP 24: More than one way: Now and beyond.

Almost 3 weeks later and just in time for the Full moon, I bring you Quiet Brave Radio's 1st birthday episode.

So different than I first imagined, but no truer expression of what the time spent has revealed and the energy that's moving us into what's ahead.

We talk desire, seasons, celebration and using self compassion to address being uncomfortable. We also dive into dancing, video journaling, alignment, accountability and lots more in between. 

Plus what's happening to our pod and upcoming projects.

EP 23: When you're living your truth...


Kayla has just entered the dawn of a new decade (hello thirty) and the rise of exciting new tides have come with it.

A marriage proposal. The launch of her energetic awakening program ‘ChakraFit’. Plans for a new home that she, her long-haired man and fluffy little pooch can call their own. 

She’s a left-handed, hula-hooping, music-loving wellness mentor who is terrible at remembering numbers, dates and the price of bananas.

She has a strong aversion to anything artificial/over commercialised and feels uneasy about being disconnected from nature; which makes shopping centres her kryptonite!  

At the time of this broadcast, Kayla can be found in a quaint studio flat amongst peaceful surrounds in Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Australia. When she is not taking radio interviews you can find her eyes-closed breathing into a long stretch, concocting a hot cacao/turmeric/medicinal mushroom tonic (yum!), struggling with over-filled bags at the farmers market or dashing in and out of the ocean for the quickest swim you ever did see.

She nerds out over astrology, crystals and flower essences and has a strong reverence for the vast intelligence ‘beyond the mind’
