Today I welcome a good friend and returning guest, Leah Brathwaite! Leah is an author, Soul Advisor, Kundalini instructor and Human Design guide. She’s the founder of Live Free Lifestyle Inc, a personal and spiritual development and lifestyle brand that helps high achievers connect with and live in their full potential and purpose. After emancipating from nearly three decades of repressive religious indoctrination, navigating disability, depression and divorce and starting her life over from scratch at 30, Leah has learned valuable tools, lessons and practices to heal, get unstuck and create a life of freedom, fulfillment and joy. She teaches her transformative methods and perspectives through her writing, courses and consulting. Combining spirituality, practical psychology and metaphysics in her work, she creates unique opportunities for others to tap into the deepest truth of their souls and find their own answers to life’s big questions.

In this episode, Leah shares her story of profound spiritual awakening, including the transformative impact of Kundalini yoga on her life. Leah also speaks to the interconnectedness of our experiences as a whole—good and bad—and how we all go through cycles of forgetting who we are so that we can remember again and start on the next level of expansion. If you’re feeling stuck and not sure where to start, this episode is for you!
