Featuring: Shelly Johnson
Shelly was born and raised in the Mormon church, like all good Mormons, she married young and bred fast, having seven wonderful children to ensure she would get into Heaven and please her Mormon family.
Not long after the birth of her seventh child, Shelly had a breakdown. She left the church, coming out of the closet and divorcing her husband. Now she’s doing her best trying to figure out life and heal from the trauma.
This episode is a raw account of Shelly’s journey of liberation and awakening, as she undoes the shackles of conditioning, moves through guilt and experiences a full life for the first time in 40 years.
Shelly shares how she thought her depression and anxiety was a sign that she was a sinner, it wasn’t until her partner Mary assured her that everything was going to be alright that she no longer had to pretend and life responded in the form of a gentle breeze on her shoulder.
Together we explore her family's response to her coming out as a lesbian and the incredible difference she is making in the lives of others as she and Mary host the insightful, funny and downright honest podcast called Latter Day Lesbian.

Despite concern and greater awareness about domestic violence, it’s still happening, and with only 16% of women who experience violence contacting an agency such as a shelter, crisis centre or hotline, counsellor or women’s centre for help, we may never really know the how wide spread the issue is.
In this extraordinary episode I speak with Anita Bentata, an escapee of domestic violence. Anita’s story has been documented in her book “The Wolf in a Suit”.
During this episode Anita shares incredible insights from the children’s fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood” and it’s easy to see the parallels of the fairy tale with her own journey, Anita is Little Red Riding Hood, standing at the edge of the woods, being caught by The Wolf (only he’s wearing a suit), and finally escaping with her two little girls.
This episode is one of hope, courage and full of insights as Anita shares how we can all access far more than we know, and how when faced with mixed messages from a partner we end up confused, leading to inaction, possibly the reason why some women stay much longer than they should. Anita has turned her experiences into a mission to help women, she went on to study Human Behavior and became a psychotherapist and counsellor. Anita now helps women to develop their emotional muscle to speak about the unknown and the uncomfortable, she is well versed in all the unspoken myths about love, stress and relationships.

Featuring: Tenille Gilbert
Tenille is Co-Founder and Chief Operations Officer at Society Melbourne, the umbrella brand for numerous social enterprises working to create sustainable pathways out of homelessness for young people in Australia.
During our chat you will come to see that Tenille is a passionate advocate for young people, believing in the ability to unleash their potential. I was thrilled to speak with Tenille so we could dismiss the idea that millennials are a ‘snowflake’ generation.
This is an inspiring chat on so many levels! Tune in as Tenille shares her insights on the unique world of social enterprise, the sacrifices the younger generations are willing to make and their belief that if there is a problem then “we CAN do something about it”. Tenille is a great example of how the younger generations don’t wait for the system to create change, they make an impact and live on purpose each day, and we can learn so much from them, if only we stopped to take notice of the wave of positive change they are creating each day in small ways.
Thank you Tenille!

Featuring: Liliane Grace.
Tumble down the rabbit hole with Liliane Grace and I as we discuss how her love of creating imaginary worlds as a child, coupled with her interest and application of Natural Laws lead her to becoming an award-winning author, writing coach/editor and speaker. Liliane not only shares her own personal journey, she also provides a few tips for the writer within all of us.
Liliane’s story telling is thought-provoking and provides insight on “conscious living” for young and old, with messages covering universal principles for creating real magic in our lives. What I found most fascinating about Liliane was how the writing of her adult book, ‘Wanted: Greener’ appeared to trigger some fascinating real-life occurrences and synconicities.
