#12 – How To Alchemize Grief with Marina Pirkle, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Grief Recovery Specialist, Healer and CoachApril 1, 2021
Amy talks about how to keep our hearts open and love more fully in the face of resistance that comes up, the benefits of Breathwork and her recent session with John Barry, and a simple self-love practice that can keep our hearts more open to love and relax our minds while falling asleep.
Marina Pirkle joins today to talk about grief and how we can find the tools we need to deal with it when it arises in all its overwhelmingness. This episode is for everyone, as we all process grief at one time or another. Marina shares about her very dark time of learning about grief and almost taking her own life in the shock that was the aftermath of the death of her sister, who was also a daughter to her. Amy shares her own grief from her father’s passing and a friend who passed recently. How can we get more out of our heads and into our hearts, and what will that bring us? She answers this and more and addresses the new mosaic of self that can be created after we are broken. Marina also generously offers free resources to all of us that you can access HERE.
#11 – How To Shift Your Perspective and Live to Learn with Rafael Lovato Jr., Former MMA World Champion and BJJ Competitor and InstructorMarch 18, 2021
Full perspective shifts are on this week. Amy takes the topic of habits further yet, asking questions about how we can move from the feeling of “have-to” to “get-to.” What in our life feels like a chore? Where are the things required of us, and how can we shift into feeling those are fun rather than taxing? Is it possible in all things?
This week’s guest is brilliant, eloquent, and a focused master of Brazilian Jui-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts – Rafael Lovato Jr. Oh, and, a focused master of life in general. Rafael shares what he has learned from his dedicated study of martial arts that we can all apply to life; how he found gratitude after a diagnosis of a brain condition called cavernoma; and how we are all artists creating the masterpiece of us in every moment. There’s so much great takeaway packed into this conversation, and it was Rafael’s favorite podcast he has ever done. Not to be missed!

This is one of our most powerful episodes to date! Join Amy to talk about finding the habits that don’t serve us and how we can pay attention to those spaces and start to change them with simple, pragmatic tactics. Can we slow down, get quiet, do what truly serves us?
This episode’s conversation with Ella Kociuba is especially incredible. Ella has overcome living with intense pain due to spinal issues, bulimia, and has helped herself lean into what serves her most and appreciate all that she has done in her life – even the parts that she used to feel shame and pain over. She shares deeply personal stories of her trauma and eating disorder and proves that vulnerability is true strength. She is a model of self-love and embracing all that we are. Truly beautiful!

It’s episode number one, but it’s not Amy’s first podcast. Explore with her what it means to get intentional, be in the moment, and let go of doing IT— whatever IT is— “right.” Amy tells the story of her first shows, how to learn from hindsight, shares a deep breakdown as she searched for how to get things “right” with this new podcast, and how to find understanding and peace in the knowing that there is no “right” or “wrong” way.
Your voice is unique and matters in the way that you, and only YOU, do it. Join host Amy Edwards as she gets real and sets the tone for what’s to come in future episodes, on this first installment of her new podcast, The Amy Edwards Show. She dives into what it means to go into the new year— and any new venture or undertaking—naked, and allowing yourself to be exposed and seen as just who YOU are.
