Dr. Jonathan Marion: Authentic You for Authentic Connections

Dr. Jonathan Marion: Authentic You for Authentic Connections
Welcome to our guest interview for May’s theme of “How to let more love into your life”! In this episode, I am interviewing Dr. Jonathan Marion, who believes that when we LIVE, CONNECT & COMMUNICATE authentically, we send out ripples…. which send out ripples… which make the world a more caring and connected place, one ripple at a time. Having seen this dynamic over 20+ years as an award-winning cultural anthropology professor and author, Jonathan feels that how we show up is the key to living deeply meaningful and fulfilling lives. As a coach, consultant, and speaker, Jonathan draws on decades of experience teaching diverse audiences and is trained in Emotional Intelligence, Group Coaching, Positive Psychology Coaching, Clear Beliefs Coaching, and Somatic Coaching. Jonathan is passionate about supporting clients and audiences in transcending external accomplishments as measures of success to live truly aligned, rewarding, and meaningful lives. In this episode, Dr. Marion introduces the BEING framework, which stands for Begin where you are, Explore where you want to go, Investigate how you want to get there, Now start, and Get your best life. He explains that by starting with how you want to be and envisioning your ideal future, you can navigate the path towards authentic connections and a fulfilling life. Dr. Jonathan S. Marion discusses the importance of shifting from 'should' to 'could' in our thinking and actions, and how this shift can lead to more authentic connections in relationships. He emphasizes the need to acknowledge and accept what is happening in our lives, rather than fighting against it. Dr. Marion also explores the impact of cultural narratives on our beliefs and expectations in relationships, and the importance of understanding and respecting different cultural perspectives. He provides a framework for building authentic connections, focusing on understanding the role of being authentic with ourselves to be authentic with others.

In this conversation, I sit down with Karenna Soto, a Burnout keynote Speaker and trauma-informed somatic practitioner. We explore the common fears of people-pleasers, such as not being liked, understood, losing people, and not belonging. We explore the concept of inner child healing and how it can help individuals connect with their authentic selves. Karenna emphasizes the significance of learning to give oneself what one needs and wants, rather than relying on others for validation and fulfillment. Our conversation highlights the importance of vulnerability and open communication in relationships, as well as the process of creating a sense of safety within oneself. Ultimately, we guide and encourage listeners to recognize their worthiness and prioritize their own needs and desires to break free from their people-pleasing cycles. Karenna is a dynamic force in communication, relationship-building, and anxiety management, dedicated to empowering female leaders.

Kelsey Moss: Cultivating Mindfulness Through Yoga and Healthy Inner Work
This week's episode is a juicyyyy chat with Kelsey Moss! Kelsey is in the final stages of her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology and is the Owner of KMOSSYOGA. With a background in concussion research, mental health, and neurophysiology, Kelsey bridges the gap between modern neuroscience and yoga by teaching the mechanisms through which mindfulness changes the brain. As a 200-RYT, she is a firm believer in prioritizing mental and physical wellbeing for improving ourselves, communities, and corporations. After suffering from debilitating anxiety for years, Kelsey turned to mindfulness and yoga, and experienced first-hand the benefits studied in the scientific literature. Drawing on her education and experience in psychology and mental health, combined with a relentless drive to connect with and help others, she created Neuro-Informed Yoga and Mindfulness (NIYM).
