In case you hadn’t heard the news, at the end of 2019 I announced my decision to end the podcast. It was not an easy decision so I recommend you check out my final episode of the show to give you a bit more perspective on why I chose to end it. But, after three years of That’s So Maven, it is not lost on me how lucky I have been to interview some incredible humans. I have had the opportunity to chat with the “mavens” and shakers of the wellness world and from the experience have learned so much about what it means to be “well”. If anything, 130 interviews have taught me that there is not one-size-fits-all when it comes to wellness and that everyone’s experience of the world looks so different.
Every guest has left an impact on me, though some have stuck with me over the years. So I wanted to round-up the best wellness podcasts that expanded me and changed me for the better. If you’ve never tuned into the show I’d recommend you start with these episodes or if you listened and want to come back to some of my favorites, you’ll find them here. Either way, expect to learn something new! Happy listening 🙂

3 | Reiki and Emotional Freedom Therapy with Kelsey Patel
Truly one of my favorite podcast interviews I’ve done. Kelsey was so in tune to me and led to really interesting conversations and realizations. We covered so much in this episode but the key theme was healing. Healing from mental health struggles, healing your chakras, and healing with our words. It was a powerful conversation and I hope you give it a listen!
