When I started this show years ago — we’ve just passed episode 300, which is kind of mindblowing — I was talking with Ayurvedic specialists and other people in my field. People asked me to put those shows on the internet, so I turned them into podcasts. Hundreds of episodes later, I’m now able to talk to more people I really respect outside of the field of Ayurveda. One of these people is Danielle LaPorte. She’s on the show today.
Some of you may have heard of Danielle before. She created The Fire Starter Sessions and The Desire Map. She’s educated tons and tons of amazing coaches out there. She’s one of Oprah’s SuperSoul 100 — a group who’s “uniquely connecting the world together with a spiritual energy that matters,” in Oprah’s words. Danielle also has one of the top 100 websites for women, as judged by Forbes. Millions of people visit her website every month for her Truthbombs.
What I love about Danielle is that she’s able to cut through the cultural clutter and find the deep truths from deep wisdom traditions. She’s able to interpret them in a poetic way that really reaches people at all stages and life situations. See why chatting with her is my dream come true in this episode!
I rap with Danielle LaPorte about keeping it real on your spiritual path:
What you’ll get out of tuning in:
Named one of the "Top 100 Websites for Women" by Forbes, millions of visitors go to DanielleLaPorte every month for her daily #Truthbombs and what's been called "the best place online for kickass spirituality." A speaker, a poet, a painter, and a former business strategist and Washington, D.C., think tank exec, Entrepreneur Magazine calls Danielle “equal parts poet and entrepreneurial badass…edgy, contrarian…loving and inspired.”
She’s the author of
