A Soul to Soul Conversation with Rachel Awes

Season 2, Ep. 9

From a human connection standpoint, wouldn't it be better if we all were more childish, just playing and showing up just the way we are? To our guest, the fabulous Rachel Awes, even if it sounds cliche, the world would be a much better place if all of us moved from the softness of our hearts. 


Rachel Awes is a Psychologist, Author, Art Playgroundist, Speaker, and Clothing Ambassador. She has a unique approach to life and a colorful philosophy to see things she gracefully shared in our conversation. Rachel is the author of three beautiful books, "All I did was listen," "The great green okayness," and "Diving in," which we discuss and take some valuable nuggets from them. 


Today, our conversation spins around Rachel's intoxicating view of the world, life, and human interaction. We delve into the powerful message of "Diving in," of how we can decide to live our lives from the edge, or we can dive into the water, blend in, and enjoy the uncertainty of taking our chances. Rachel shared some advice for those who feel they aren't ready yet to dive in, the crucial importance of active hearing, and much more. 


Some Questions I Ask:

  • In your book "Diving in," you take the emotional, spiritual side of swimming. What gave you the idea to do that? (3:11)
  • To somebody who doesn't dare to dive in? How do you provide them with that courage? (7:50)
  • What does it feel like to do active listening? (11:34)


In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • How powerful can it be to feel joy during the task rather than thinking about when it'll be over (4:37)
  • Why do women have this tendency of being too hard on ourselves (14:55)
  • What is "The Rachel Process" and how it helped Rachel create her art (16:43)
  • How can we reach enough freedom to live in the field of ourselves (23:19)
  • An invitation to magnificence. About the Great Green Okayness (27:16)
  • Creating art that creates us (39:56)

Discovering your Emotional intelligence with Dr. Stevie Dawn

Although many people see emotional intelligence as a soft skill, Dr. Stevie Dawn thinks the opposite; it is a hard skill for her. And she goes even further. Before anything, she stops and asks herself why her brain is pushing her in that direction?
