In this episode...
Hannah’s work in facilitation and immersions, Suffering and the shadow, the way of Hoʻoponopono, #metoo, losing most of her belongings in the fires in California, minimalism, the Hopi prophecy, elevating our communities by showing up with what we most long for, consciousness hack: breathe!
Deep inquiry and meaningful connections have guided Hannah down a marvelous and ever unfolding road of enchantment, healing, wonder, and purpose. A blend of contemporary studies and non-traditional experiences have created a dynamic combination :: a bachelors degree in human development and ongoing graduate studies in eco-psychology combine with a number of rich explorations in folk herbalism, nature based soul connection, shamanic astrology, activism, grief work, rites of passage, ritual and ceremony, and storytelling to create a multi-faceted woman whose life is both her practice and her playground.
She is utterly fascinated by what it means to be human, and knows without a doubt that each and every being is born imbued with a particular genius and soul purpose. Her work is aimed at the awakening of that in each individual, and she draws inspiration from the multi-hued tapestry of her life's studies in service to the golden thread running through the center of it all.
~25:00 On Shadow and Darkness
As adults it’s important to go into what we would deem darkness, these voices of the inner critic, these voices of self judgment, and harshness, and comparison.. All these parts of ourselves that we often times want to run from, they are valid and beautiful parts of us but we have to build relationship with them. So often they are just unconsciously running the show... because what's in our shadow is what runs life.
So the more that we're able to take time to build relationship with our story, to begin to rework our stories of trauma and suffering, to build relationship with all the voices that were created in resistanse to that, the more fully embodied we become. Suffering and trauma is exactly what unlocks the medicine that we’re here to give to the world at this time. How can we reweave our stories to step deeper into the fullness of what it is we have to offer?
~ 42:00 On Minimalism
The lighter that I’m able to travel, the quicker I’m able to move when the time calls for it. … How much energy do we want to be tied up in the stuff we have? Because in my experience now, this lightness is really freeing me up to invest that energy into my purpose.

~51:00 - on elevating our communities
To be the most effective in true transformation is to show up and give that which we most long for. All of us have a longing for love, for community, relationship, trust. How do I show up and give that fully, in every moment? And not demanding that which I long for from the world around me, but showing up with purpose. How do I show up with love?
