Good morning beautiful people,

I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world.

Last week, I said that it doesn’t have to be perfect to get started, so I got started and my podcast, Beyond Norms, is now available on Spotify ( I am waiting for Apple to approve too).

Why such a name? Because I took an anthropology class for my baccalaureate when I was sixteen years old, and realised that there were different ways to live life, that beliefs were always questionable, especially if they didn’t give us joy.

So my first guest, Carmela Fleury, is a master coach, yoga teacher, entrepreneur and the founder of the global mama village, and we are mother wild. She is smart, bold, humble and kind. She also happened to have been in that same anthropology class I was in.

On this note, I will invite you to take a deep breath in, feeling your feet on the ground and the air moving through your nostrils. When you feel ready to breath out, feel your body grounding a little more. How aligned do you feel right now? How do you “u-turn” when your alignment feels off?

Carmela will be talking about all these amazing tools that make life, so much more enjoyable, even if living beyond norms can be a little scary.

Below is the full interview and don’t forget to follow Beyond Norms on Spotify.

May this conversation inspire you as much as it inspired me.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

With love and deep respect

Vanessa

On Activism and Stepping Up

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. This week went by again, faster than the speed of light, and I feel grateful for your comments regarding my first interview. It was good, but thankfully there is a lot of room for improvement. Today, I get to share my conversation with the amazing Mimi Bekhechi, Vice President of PETA ( people for the ethical treatment of animals). This is the organisation that made a lot of noise in the 90’s with top models posing naked saying “we‘d rather be naked than wear fur.”

Good morning beautiful people, I hope that you are all safe and healthy, wherever you are in the world. I dare say “the world”, because this newsletter does go out to people throughout the globe, some who might have bought an evil eye jewellery, others who have joined a guided mediation or purchased my book. You might also happen to be reading this because we crossed paths and started a conversation ( the cheaper version:).
