008 Creating Balance to Flourish with Kinesiologist Claire Tait


The next 50 minutes (or so) is just for you.
This week I’m chatting with Holistic Kinesiologist, Claire Tait who is passionate about helping people live to their full potential. She works from the principle that body, mind and spirit are connected and through the balance of these 3 components, full health can be achieved.
She is a Registered Specialised Kinesiology Practitioner with the AKA (Australian Kinesiology Association), an Accredited member of the ATMS (Australian Traditional Medicine Society), an Australian Bush Flower Essence practitioner, an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) practitioner and a Reiki Master. She is passionate about her family and friends, great food and wine, a good gym session, yoga, animals and nature, acts of kindness and the appreciation of all the simple things in life. She tries to live in gratitude everyday.
This is one of my favourite episodes so far. Claire talks about
* her evolution through life that has led her to practising kinesiology,
* the loss of her parents within a week of each while she was at university
* her journey with depression following this.
* her family’s decision to leave South Africa and make their home in Australia
* how to embrace balance in our daily lives
* how to balance our masculine and feminine in order to flourish and the importance of doing so
We have a beautiful in depth conversation – the common thread that pulls it all together is balance. It’s not about perfect balance but balance is what we’re seeking.
Claire explores with me her take on spirituality and the importance of our connectedness to all things. We touch on soul lessons and that our souls chose to be here at this time.
Claire’s depth of knowledge and passion shine through this conversation and we manage to touch on so many aspects of life as a woman, as a mother, as an entrepreneur and as a human being. She shares some beautiful tips on how to tune in to your intuition and how to start meditating and her recommended books and teachers.

007 Why we don’t need guilt with Mothering Mentor, Marion Rose


Welcome to episode 7 of the Dare to Flourish Podcast.  This week I’m chatting with Mothering Mentor, Marion Rose.

“I long to live in a world where every child’s feelings are heard, no child is left to cry, no baby is left alone to cry, no mother is left alone to cry”. (Marion Rose)

She helps mothers to be compassionate with themselves and offers effective and long term parenting practices to help our children thrive.  In addition to being an inspiration as a mother and providing powerful tools and techniques that we can embrace on our own mothering journey, she is also a savvy business woman and prolific course maker. If you go to her website (and I recommend that you do) you’ll find about 16 free courses available together with the same amount of paid courses.

In this conversation we explore the concept of guilt and talk about replacing our internalised dialogue. Marion explains her Inner Loving Presence Process.  We of course talk about self-love and sisterhood and she shares her gorgeous recommendation for having empathy buddies – friends who can just be with you while you let your feelings flow and why you may need different friends for different feelings.

We chat about Marion’s take on spirituality – love and compassion in action and listening to our intuition and Marion explains why it is never too late to listen to our child’s feelings or our own feelings.
