In this week's show, the girls take a long, in-depth and candid walk through the evolution of Laura's relationship with AA: her beliefs when she started, how it's evolved, and where she stands now at nearly three years sober.
In this episode, the girls go back to the roots of the show and answer two letters from readers. The first is from a woman who's wondering how to begin the work of getting sober (and if it's as much work as she imagines), and the second is from someone asking if she has to lose everything to drinking before she learns.
This week, the girls talk to Veronica Valli, author, therapist and recovery coach. The interview was sparked by a comment Veronica left on Holly’s Facebook page in response to her article Why We Need to do Away with Ego-Deflation and Humility in Women’s Recovery and the girls talk about that comment and everything behind it, including Veronica’s history with AA, how she views feminism, humility and her recovery from co-dependence.
This week, the girls decided to talk about something a little lighter than usual, so naturally, they chose money. This is the first of a two-part series and in this first episode, they talk through what their beliefs were about money growing up and what their money situations looked like pre-sobriety. In Part 2, they'll talk about how their money story has changed since getting sober.
Scott Stabile is back -- and this time we're talking about his upcoming book, BIG LOVE, which comes out September 7 (pre-order link below!). Scott is a favorite of HOME because he's funny, oh-so lovable, charming, kind, all around wonderful, and--as the girls' learned from reading his book--fascinatingly weird.
This week, the girls talk to Dr. Ruth Potee a board certified Family Physician and Addiction Medicine Physician in Massachusetts. She speaks of the shame and stigma that surrounds addiction in the American medical system, substance abuse and the brain, the normalization and rise of alcohol use in women in the past twenty years, and how far this conversation has come in just the last three years.
This week, the girls talk to Nikki Myers a yoga therapist, teacher and somatic experiencing practitioner who founded CITYOGA School of Yoga and Health in Indianapolis, IN. She launched Yoga of 12-Step Recovery in 2004 based on her own personal struggles with addiction. She talks about how she came to pair the 12-steps and yogic philosophy, what her long-term recovery looks like, and co-dependency.
You know the Louis C.K. line, "Everything is amazing and nobody's happy?" This episode is something like that, except more like, "Everything is amazing and nobody's had enough sleep and it's all difficult." In this episode, Holly and Laura do a catch up on work, love, sobriety and home life after a bunch of travel, way too much junk food, and no sleep.
This week, Rebecca Campbell, best-selling author or Light is The New Black and Rise Sister Rise joins HOME. Rebecca is a spiritual teacher, mentor, and soulful guide who has led thousands of women to listen to the callings of their soul and create a life that is completely aligned to them. She talks to the girls about her the path that led her to quit her job as an award-winning creative director to follow her call to spiritual service, how she relates to the divine feminine, and what she thinks is possible for women.
