During college, Kyla struggled with her food choices. Her decision to restrict her diet led to binge eating. Kyla tells of a “low moment” standing in front of the freezer, eating her roommate’s Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. This was her “rock bottom.” During her journey to heal, she discovered her hurts were rooted in her childhood. This allowed her to sort through her “life truths,” and employ self compassion for healing. Eventually, she became a health coach, seeking to teach “food freedom” to others.

Q & A

Why is self love important?

Self love is the most untapped resource. It is something we are not taught to utilize or understand.

What was the number one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love?

All of my many, many years of conditioning, and patterns, and beliefs that I had held.

Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?

That would be my lovely health coach, Jamie Mendel.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

“The only way out is through.”

Can you share a resource, an app or a tool that we can use to build our selfcare practice.

I love cooking for self care. The recipe blog I look at most often is Minimalist baker, which has interesting and creative food.

Do you have a favorite quote?

“You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees through the desert for a thousand miles repenting. You only have to let your body love what it loves.”

What book are you reading right now?

Women, Food, and Desire, by Alexander Jamison.

What is the one thing that you are most passionate about?

Being a warrior for self love.

Maggie Dennison shares with us both external and internal journeys. In the 70’s, through a series of events, Maggie became a world traveler. For two years, she traveled the globe, meeting others and exploring the land. By happenstance, she reconnected with a person she’d met once before, who invited her to a conference. This led to Maggie meeting a spiritual teacher who has guided her life to this day. She talks about how she “just knew” she needed to connect with this person.

Q & A

Why is self love important in your personal life?

I’m a big believer that your outer world reflects your inner world, and you put out affects the world around you and what comes towards you. So the more I take care of me and value me, the more centered I am.

What was the number one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love?

I think the main thing is conditioning. I grew up in the back woods of Ireland, where girls were taught to be good girls, make things right, other people were more important than you.

Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?

There are two people that changed my life, first, my boss who gave me, when I went traveling, assurances that if I got stranded somewhere in the world, he would fly me home. Another boss led me to realize how strong and confident I really am, just by how he treated me, and talked about me to others.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Listen to myself.

What is a self care habit that you practice regularly?

That’s an easy one. Meditation, above everything else.

Can you share a resource, an app or a tool that we can use to build our selfcare practice.

There’s something I just came across yesterday, I go to Unity Church. They have “silent unity” where you can call in and have people pray with you live on the phone. They have developed an app called UPray. You can submit prayer requests, but they also have mediations on there. I am exploring it now. It’s very non-denominational.

What book are you reading right now?

My favorite books are crime novels. I am really into psychology, I really love digging into what things make people do what they do.

Do you have a favorite quote?

“Trust in God, but tie your camel up first.”

What is the one thing that you are most passionate about?

Helping my clients be better so they can be successful.

I meditate. I meditate every day. Sometimes I meditate for just a few moments and other times I will sit and meditate for half an hour to an hour.

Can you share a resource, an app or a tool that we can use to build our selfcare practice.

For creatives, there is a book called, “Life without Envy.” I also like meditating to chimes and bowls.

I have a stack of books that are sitting on my dresser right now. I very rarely read books, but I do love this poetry magazine “Rattle.”

Spreading unconditional love. It's very important to me for other people to feel to feel and experience.

Lara Ledsham was the very first guest on Just Stay Curious. She returns to discuss how her 2016 has been. Launching her coaching practice while remaining full time employed, Lara overextended herself, and became sicker and sicker. Her doctor encouraged her to take some time off. Lara, predictably, refused, explaining how work “needed” her. Her doctor responded by informing her that continuing down her current path would only lead to her becoming a professional patient. She is now taking some time off to recover. Lara is working to incorporate self love and self care by making changes to her life. Lara is also making this a project a group effort. She is taking suggestions for self love and self care, sharing publicly her process, and acknowledging successes and failures.

Lara is also planning on returning to coaching, on her own terms. She feels in the last year she was given too much advice from others, and forgot to listen to her own voice. She intends to start again, in alignment with her own values and beliefs.

Katie started in her early 20’s, working in digital marketing and pursuing a master’s degree. She became physically sick, she says, because she was ignoring her true calling. She began to heal her relationship with sisterhoods. She developed some online friendships, reaching out to others as a vulnerable being. This led to building trust, which led to more vulnerability. Katie worked to develop fun rituals, such as bathing with white rose petals on “Moon Monday.” Along the way, she was led to her own priestess awakening.

Q & A

Why is self love so important?

Self-love, for me, is absolutely the foundation to my work so it has to be in place. If that foundation - if there's a crack in that foundation, nothing else is functioning on top of it.

What was the number one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love?
Unnecessary programming from childhood and from some aspects of our society that are not built to support empowering women.

Who is one person who has changed your life for the better?

My Partner, Ben.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

Feel your feelings.

What is a self care habit that you practice regularly?

Nourishing morning drinks.

Can you share a resource, an app or a tool that we can use to build our selfcare practice.

The timer on my phone. It helps me create a container of time, so I can give myself X amount of minutes to fully give myself permission to do something. 

Do you have a favorite quote?

“I am the creatrix of my every precious moment.”

What book are you reading right now?

The Sophia Code, by Kaia Ra and Creating Money, by Sanaya Roman.

What is the one thing that you are most passionate about?

That sense of remembering. When I see that activate in others, especially women.
