46: Enlighten Me on Faith and Feminism - Part 1

When you hear the word feminism, what pictures come up in your mind? Women burning their bras? Fighting for their pro-choice rights? Well, those images don’t truly encapsulate what feminism is. It’s actually quite a bit simpler than all that - feminism means equality between men and women. That’s what Meghan Tschanz is here to spread the message on. Through her speaking and writing, she is dispelling the lies and myths that society has been feeding us all this time, and I just love how she is spicing things up! To view the full show notes, continue reading here or visit my website: www.heartfelthippie.comWhen I first came across Meghan’s podcast - Faith and Feminism - I just knew I had to meet her. These are two topics that I have a passion for and I wanted to see just how they go hand-in-hand. Because of her experiences as a former missionary working with sexually exploited women, Meghan has learned that so many of the oppression issues that females face are because of power dynamics and inequality between men and women. In a culture (and sometimes a church) that wants to tell her to sit down and shut up, Meghan believes that God has told her differently. She believes that Jesus himself was a feminist who empowered women, so she’s on a mission to spread that message.No matter where your faith lies, I know you’ll learn a lot from Meghan today and enjoy what she has to share. Even if you don’t agree with everything we discuss, I ask that you approach the conversation with an open mind and be willing to learn from someone who has a different perspective than you. In Part 1, Meghan and I are discussing her background a little further, and she also educates me on what feminism truly is and why it should matter to all of us. Yep, all of us - no matter your gender, locale, or religion! That means that this episode isn’t just for women - she’ll explain how men can be a part of feminism, too, and we even start diving into hot topics like sexual assault. Next week on Part 2, we discuss some of these topics further and we also chat about what it’s been like for Meghan to receive pushback on this mission that a lot of people have a problem with. After hearing what she has to say today, I don’t think that will be any of you! So listen in and get ready to be pumped up from this girl on fire.Links from the show:Instructions on leaving a review:https://theheartfelthippie.wordpress.com/how-to-write-a-podcast-review/Faith and Feminism Podcast:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/faith-and-feminism/id1438368947“Know My Name” by Chanel Miller:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50196744-know-my-name1619 Podcast:https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/23/podcasts/1619-podcast.htmlConnect with Mackenzie:Instagram: @theheartfelthippieFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/theheartfelthippie/Email: mackenzie.heartfelthippie@gmail.comWebsite: www.heartfelthippie.comConnect with Meghan:Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/faith-and-feminism/id1438368947Instagram: @meghantschanz // @faithandfeminismFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2014437822155051/Website: https://www.meghantschanz.com/

45: Enlighten Me on Ocean Conservation

You know her as a wise yogi, but let me reintroduce you to Ahlia, the former professional surfer and experienced scuba diver! Outside of yoga, Ahlia is extremely passionate about our oceans. All the time she has spent in the water has lead her to become quite knowledgable about many problems our waters are facing, like pollution and dying coral reefs. In Part 2 of this conversation, Ahlia is teaching us about ocean conservation and how we can help! To view the full show notes, continue reading here or visit my website: www.heartfelthippie.comDid you know that 4 billion pounds of trash enter our oceans every year? Statistics like these are what Ahlia is sharing with us today, and while they are sad to hear, they are also things that can’t be ignored. Ahlia is going to tell us some ways that we can be more mindful to prevent all this garbage from outnumbering our sea life! She also shares what is has been like overcoming her fear of sharks and what she has learned that can help avoid tragic things like shark attacks. Lastly, Ahlia educated me on the topic of coral reef conservation. I truly didn’t know just how important coral reefs are to our ecosystem (not to mention the safety of mankind!) and the fact that they are endangered. I learned so much during this conversation and I know you will too!Even though some of these facts about what’s happening in our seas are hard to hear, the message that Ahlia shares is equally as empowering. It is never too late to start making a difference, and Ahlia is going to tell us how we can do just that! You’ve heard me say it before - little changes add up to big change. Let’s learn and practice mindfulness together!Links from the show:“The Power of One” by Bryce Courtenay:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004ISLTT6/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1“The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2122.The_Fountainhead“Shantaram” by Gregory David Roberts:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/33600.Shantaram“Chasing Coral” documentary: https://www.netflix.com/title/80168188Lifefactory Water Bottles:https://www.lifefactory.com/hydrationPrimal Herb Optimal Immune Antioxidant:https://primalherb.com/product/optimal-immune/Connect with Mackenzie:Instagram: @theheartfelthippieFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/theheartfelthippie/Website: www.heartfelthippie.comEmail: mackenzie.heartfelthippie@gmail.comConnect with Ahlia:Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/whats-wellness-with-ahlia-yoga/id1494254559Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5kvbH9OUtAndfsSW-qJfFAInstagram: @ahliayogaWebsite: https://ahliayoga.com/Email: ahlia@ahliayoga.com
