“I know that there's a place for us, for we are glorious.”

Season 7, Ep. 101
Dearest you.Enrolments to join us inside Off— are now open here. Mentorship, career and business coaching, wisdom and community, Off— my response to what you’ve told me you need:Professional guidance. Strategic but conscious career and business advice. Leadership. A network of conscious colleagues that will become your expanders and your cheerleaders.The title of this episode is a small part of the moving testimonial Melissa sent me after her first three months inside our space.More from Melissa:“If you feel that the structures and systems we've learned to subscribe to don't support the truest version of yourself and you're looking to consciously expand your career then I encourage you to become a co-creator inside Off— with us."It's part learning, part mentorship, part brainstorming, sharing and exploring but at its essence Off— is a community. The energy inside this space is beautiful and you will feel held. When you're having one of those days and a voice memo from Alison drops in, it is the perfect reminder to take a breath and recognise that you know how to align your profession with your essence.“When I first logged into the space and started to explore, The Greatest Showman was on TV. The song 'This Is Me' has special meaning. Jeannie Bourke sent it to me after a treatment at a time when I was really struggling at work. It almost felt like a little sign that Off— was exactly where I was meant to be, knowing that without her as your first guest on the podcast I might not have found Offline and all the things since.“I listened to it again today and the words made me think a lot about what I wanted to say as part of my testimonial but especially this:‘I know that there's a place for us, for we are glorious.’”— MelissaI hope you say yes to us and yes to this space.

Part 2 ~ Matt Ringrose on why possessions, houses, crypto — all of it — will never bring us lasting fulfillment.

Season 7, Ep. 99
Dearest you.Welcome back to part two of my honest conversation with a teacher of mine, Matt Ringrose. Matt initiated me as a Vedic Meditator in late 2018, and he’s been a steady counsel in my life ever since.If you’d like to start with part one, here it is.Having a conversation with Matt is never linear, and that’s what I’ve loved most about our chats over the years. In this most recent sit down, we discuss the powerful technique of letting go — something we are inviting you to learn how to do — and more specifically, what becomes possible when we let go of our professional attachments and the definitions of success that don’t serve our highest possible growth and evolution.This episode begins when we were discussing how our expectations of life, work, business and self evolve as our state of consciousness evolves and increases. Which is perfect and relevant, but for me personally has sometimes had a bit of a melancholy flavour to it.He also explains why acquiring things like cars, houses or even a private island aren’t the throughway to lasting fulfillment.Hope this one helps you on your way.Alison xoP.S. Matt spent close to a year developing a guided online course called Learn to Let Go and just like Vedic Meditation, it was a transformative learning experience for me so we decided how wonderful to share it with all of you. Our invitation to study with Matt is sprinkled throughout both episodes, but if you miss anything, all of the information you need is detailed here:Enrol in Matt’s upcoming Learn to Let Go course here: https://bondimeditation.com.au/learn-to-let-goPlease enjoy the code OFFLINE10 for 10 percent offFollow Bondi Meditation Centre on Instagram—Offline is a resource for anyone evolving beyond the traditional ideals of success, to explore professional pathways that are more aligned to their true nature, unique gifts and passions.Visit www.getoffline.co to learn more about Alison’s career coaching, professional development opportunities and community experiences, or follow @getoffline.co and @alisonlarsenrice.Alison Rice acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the country on which she creates today, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.

Part 1 ~ Matt Ringrose on how to let go of all that’s holding you back.

Season 7, Ep. 98
Dearest you.If you’ve been listening to Offline since the beginning or at least since season two, you’ll know about Bondi Meditation Centre founder and Vedic Meditation teacher, Matt Ringrose. He taught me this effortless meditation technique a few months after I launched the podcast in 2018, and it quite simply changed the direction and intention of my life, my work and how I define success.Matt was just the type of teacher I needed at a time in my life when things felt really hard, sad, anxious and serious. Fast forward three and a half years and Matt remains a steady counsel in my life and also a friend.We both received such a warm reception for our first episode, so it’s really an honour to bring you another honest conversation with Matt.We spoke for two hours (!) so I’m publishing it over two episodes. This is part one. We covered a lot of really valuable ground but the thread that weaves its way throughout is letting go. How to let go of all that is holding us back and what becomes possible when we do.Ok, here’s to letting go of our professional attachments and the definitions of success that don’t serve our evolution. I’m calling it professional peace.Alison xoP.S.

Shaman Durek on being your own damn guru.

Season 7, Ep. 97
Dearest you. Now, while I can’t control how you’ll experience this episode, my hope is that it speaks directly to your innate deservingness for a life that is joyful and happy. That it encourages you to see what you do for a living as less about what you’ll get, and more about unlocking what you have to give. I hope this episode gives you the courage to create a life that feels like your own, not one that someone else suggested you live.Shaman Durek is a sixth-generation Shaman, the founder of The Shaman School, and best-selling author of the book Spirit Hacking: ​​Shamanic Keys to Reclaim Your Personal Power, Transform Yourself, and Light Up the World.If I had to sum up this episode in a sentence, it’s about reclaiming our independence. And perhaps even more specific than that, our spiritual independence.Shaman Durek is dedicated to giving people their power back. His wisdom and his work asks us to be our own damn gurus. He reminds us that we are the expert on us, and that if we choose to exist as the multidimensional beings that we actually are, then we’ll bump into happiness. We’ll feel the sense of fulfilment we’ve been seeking through otherwise unsustainable and oftentimes self serving and stagnant pathways.He believes that success is no more than us being able to live in a place of joy, happiness, freedom and play within what we do. I’m in.I hope this episode helps you on your way.

The business values & boundaries behind this founder’s 12-month waitlist.

Season 7, Ep. 95
Dearest you. This episode is produced in partnership with Estée Lauder and is a continuation of our Self Care Sundays mini-series. Over four seasons now, it’s been an honour to sit down with some of the brand’s inspiring ambassadors and friends to have an honest conversation about self care, skincare, confidence and success.My next guest is someone very dear to me. She was my moment of self care every eight weeks for two years when I was working as a digital publisher. I used to book her last appointment at 7pm and fall in a heap on her treatment bed. Her name is Diandra Politano.A regular facial with Diandra was a luxury I could afford at the time, but for me, it was about much more than skin health. It was the way she cared for me. The way she rubbed my sore shoulders and massaged my hands. She led me into rest during a chapter of my life when I had an unhealthy addiction to my work.Fast forward six years and Diandra is one of Sydney’s most in-demand facialists.When I had this honest conversation with Diandra before Christmas in 2021, she’d already closed her personal book to new clients in 2022. I just thought that was so truly incredible. To be providing the kind of self care that people prioritise up to a year out.There’s so many of us starting our own service-based businesses and all we could ever dream of is being booked out. Having that sense of financial security but also the feeling of confidence that comes when we can clearly see that people need what we have to give.I hope you adore this honest conversation. We talk about the big resignation moment before starting your own thing. About business values and boundaries. About preserving our gifts. About setting the plan and getting comfortable with the unknown.I hope this episode helps you on your way.

Juliet Allen on how she uses visualisation & sex magic to grow her business.

Season 7, Ep. 93
#Jalison is back. If you’ve listened to my first and second honest conversation with Juliet Allen, you’ll know about our cute nickname. We became fast friends after our first recording session and now I probably talk to Juliet more than I do Tony during the day. We’re both deep in our motherhood season and we also have really similar businesses, so we exchange voice texts all day about everything from what bibs we’re using, to what we’re currently creating and what we’re having for dinner. It’s nice. I think we keep each other sane.If you don’t know about Juliet, she’s Australia’s leading sexologist and the founder of Pleasure School, The Juliet Pleasure Wand and Yinn. Body.The last two times she’s been my guest, we’ve spoken about sex. This time, I invited her back on to talk about how she’s built and grown such a pioneering and progressive business, but also, to share what life and work looked like before the Juliet Allen we know today. She’s worked so hard to get where she is so I want you to keep that in mind.Slow, meaningful, deliberate.In this episode, we talk about authentic expression over having a social media strategy, how leaving a financially secure situation was the moment her business began to thrive, productising her brand and generating new income streams, how she uses sex magic, visualisation and manifestation to reach her goals, and why success has nothing to do with the amount of money in her bank account.Juliet has been a huge expander for so many of us who want to use our unique gifts to serve, and to make a living while we do it. A big thank you to Juliet for opening up so we can all learn.I hope this episode helps you on your way.
