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.]

Dr. Scott Blossom reminds us of why brain health is important. He challenges us to ask a question of our heart every morning, “What is it that I want? What is going to serve me and connect me with my hearts desire?”

Join me in a conversation with Dr. Blossom and learn how  knowing our hearts desire leads us to change, redesigning our thinking and compassion. Attention: this conversation may challenge your perspective of self and motivate you to pay attention to your language judgments and paths for cultivating a more inclusive society.



  • Why a head and neck massage in the morning can change your mood
  • How to use redesigning thinking as a way to change behavior
  • How self-care and self-love broaden compassion
