Hello & welcome to the Fearless Self-Love Podcast! Loving ourselves is the most selfless thing we can do. When we prioritize our own needs, we show up more fully for others. We are more receptive and aware. We begin to live with ease. Each episode features conversations with creatives and wellness pros, whose real-life stories will inspire you to take the next step toward living a life you love. Our bottom line is to cultivate communities of fearless self-love and compassionate connection…and you'll feel like you're right here with us, sitting around the table with a pot of tea. We'll walk you through an easeful living practice, and leave you with a courageous self-care tip. I'm your host, Andrea Catherine, Yoga Health Coach, & your advocate to live a flourishing Life You Love. [New episodes released on the 1st and 15th of every month.]

It might surprise you that an artist’s best work does not always turn out the way they planned. Opening yourself up to uncertainty can elicit unexpected and wonderful results. And while we may not all consider ourselves artists in the traditional sense, everyone is a creator in one way or another. Join me in my conversation with multidisciplinary artist Kylin O’Brien as we discuss the how comfort with uncertainty, creation, and clearing your space all leave room for what serves us best at this point in our lives.

  • How we can all approach life as creators
  • Why authenticity and trust are key
  • How clearing space can open up new opportunities
