Listeners – great news! The great Dr. Tania Israel is BAAACCCCKKKK and chatting with Karen and Katie for this week’s pod. What’s more: she’s brought along her dear friend Karma Yeshe Chödrön to talk all about their podcast Prajna Sparks. The pair started their podcast around the same time as Karen and Katie did, so in today’s podcast they discuss the creative process, the mental health benefits of being creative, and how wonderful it is to pursue projects with friends. Yet there is SO MUCH MORE to this conversation. Yeshe explains her path from litigator to Buddhist translator and teacher, and how she and Tania are putting something gorgeous into the world in every episode of Prajna Sparks with Dharma talks, original songs (lyrics written by Tania), and guided meditations.
The group also discusses meditation, how to talk about the issue of vaccinations without getting triggered(!!), and more. We really hope you enjoy this one.

Oooh, Listeners, you are in for a TREAT today! In this week’s episode, Karen and Katie chat about how it can be challenging to excavate the WHY behind our feelings in any given moment. And then the pair go into an in-depth discussion on anger (it is JUICY!). The convo is also peppered with fun stories about Karen as a wine competition judge and Katie’s recent success at manifesting a housing swap. You won’t want to miss this one.
Enjoy and thanks for listening – we appreciate all of you!

On today’s show, the pair chat about their feelings about the new COVID variant news and make a strong case for taking vacation right now (even if it is just to take a prolonged lunch break and look out at some nature). The mental health benefits cannot be underestimated and both Karen and Katie discuss how recently taking time off has helped them in a myriad of ways.
