My guest on this weeks HER Conversations is Ellen Atkins, Founder of The Suburban Monk

After thirty fulfilling years as a CPA in the corporate world, Ellen knew it was time for a change. She was a happy suburban mom of three kids, a great husband and adorable dog. On the outside, what more could she want? Yet in 2007, Ellen turned her life upside down, quit her great job in search of what made her happy.

She became hyper-focused on whatever brought her joy: words, quotes, a picture, or even a colour. During her transition, Ellen ordered a few Monk statues, the jolly kind with the big bellies. Surprised with the joy they gave her, she began to dress them up, duck tape quotes to them, take pictures and send them to her friends. From there, Syd was born.

Since that life-changing decision, Syd has swept the world. Syd has spread his love to six of our seven continents (Antarctica coming soon) and hangs out with Carlos Santana, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Mackenzie Phillips, The Dali Lama and even the Pope!

By listening to Ellen’s story you will witness an example of the magic that can happen when you choose to follow that persistent silent whisper, start before you feel you are ready and leap into the unknown void of possibility.

My guest this week is the artist, Pashet.
Even though society is recognising and appreciating the value of authentic expression. and phrases such as ‘do you’ or ‘be yourself’ become commonplace in our language most people will have no idea what that means in their own lives. This is why I as a creator love to speak to other creators because they truly understand what it is to live in their personal truth and have discovered a way of presenting their perspective to the world. It is imperative that these unique perspectives are explored. Not only to see another’s work but to prompt us to do the same.

During our conversation, Pashet shares how her art is a connection with spirit, the way that her work is mentoring her and the way that world events are bringing forward a new form of expression.

My guest on this weeks HER Conversations is Sasha Korellis, founder of Satcha Malas. Malas are sacred adornments and traditionally used in spiritual practice to keep count of the mantras or breath, much better than the jarring alarms on our phones. 

While it is possible to buy off the shelf Malas, Sacha provides a sacred service, and each piece is created with her individual client in mind and imbued with her passion and their intention. This means each piece is like no other and a powerful piece of technology that literally changes their life experience. 

I love to hear about the way other creatives work because the beauty of the final piece is always in the details. 

In this episode, you will find out the most auspicious times to create Malas, why a Rudraksha seed can cost as much as a diamond and what happens when your Malas stops working.

Artist Aquara Soma joins me for this weeks HER Conversations
This is a fascinating insight into the real life of an artist.

Aquara experienced international success in the art world in her early twenties. Then after marrying and becoming a mother there followed many years when she barely created but eventually the desire to paint returned. 
Now she is back to gifting the world with exquisite work, has recently opened a gallery and also guides others to discover and express their creativity. 

During our conversation, Aquara talks about:
How developing confidence in your work will make you impervious to the opinions of others, 
The connection artistry has with being seen and making a mark in the world
and
The simple and inexpensive ways anyone with artistic aspirations can get started. 

We also touch on art and activism.
