** Content Warning -- this episode may be triggering for some individuals, as the episode discusses abuse and manipulation by authority figures ** Jessica talks with clinical therapist and yoga teacher Elisabeth Lilja about power dynamics in positions of authority, trust, leadership, ethics, and how to keep our personal power. Elisabeth compares the rigid regulations and testing in the therapy world to the lack of regulations and standardization in the yoga world. What is yoga therapy? What do we do when a teacher or authority manipulates us, or their students? How do we hold ourselves, and others, accountable? This episode gets deep, and ends with a conversation about what type of therapy Elisabeth offers her clients, and why therapy is helpful for anyone — not just those struggling with mental health.

Kate is now launching a brand-new online business course called The Feminine Code. Jessica and Kate discuss their ideas around what it means to be an entrepreneur operating from a place of feminine energy, what their experiences were like in the corporate world, and what it means to hold boundaries in our personal and professional lives.

Your legacy has nothing to do with money or fame, it has to do with how you feel, and how the people around you feel. What values define your existence?
