EP37: Jaclyn Michelle

For episode 37 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with Jaclyn Michelle, a Human Design chart analyst, teacher and the founder of Interior Creature

Put simply, Human Design is the intersection of science and spirituality. It gives us the language to describe the signals our body and our intuition has been telling us all along — before all the programming and social conditioning. It’s also been described as a user manual for life. Both a mechanical science and a practical tool that shows us how we are constituted, and therefore how to make healthy decisions and live as the unique beings we are. 

Jaclyn deeply believes it is vital that every woman has the resources, the time and the energy to hold space in her life for her own emotional and spiritual expansion. She’s made it her mission to make tools like Human Design practical, actionable and accessible for everyone.

If you’re interested in getting your own design decoded, Jaclyn is kindly offering Offline listeners 5% off her services. Visit her services page on www.interiorcreature.com, and use the code OFFLINE (all caps) at check out.

EP36: Cartia Mallan

For episode 36 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down one of Australia’s most-watched young women, Cartia Mallan. At just 21 years old, Cartia has a combined following of over one million people across Instagram and YouTube — mostly other young women who turn to her for self-care and mental health advice, mentorship and support. 

Alison and Cartia connected quickly on their devotion to exploring and honouring what spirituality means to them, and how they use their beliefs as both a compass and a comfort. 

Cartia is wise beyond her years and a gift to us all. She didn’t hold back in this honest conversation and for that Alison is thankful. Young women growing up in a world lived almost entirely online need her honesty and the accessible way in which she translates her innate wisdom. 

In this honest conversation, Cartia shares what it means to be telepathic, manifestation as a way of life, why she wouldn’t change getting bullied in high school or suffering crippling anxiety, her thoughts on privacy, privilege, why she had to leave Sydney and what she’s willing to sacrifice in order to live her life in service to others.

Alison hopes you can feel her light and her energy — it was entirely intoxicating.

EP35: Manoj Dias

[The Teachers]

For episode 35 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with Buddhist meditation teacher and chief of Melbourne meditation studio, A—Space, Manoj Dias. Before the here and now, Manoj once identified as a successful corporate businessman who was suffering from anxiety, insomnia and disordered eating. 

What he offers us in this honest conversation is incredible perspective across a diverse range of topics, including the continued lack of diversity and inclusion in the wellness space. Manoj is passionate about facilitating conversations that explore possible answers to the question he asks himself when he sits down to teach: Who is not in the room and why? 

But before that, expect to hear his journey to becoming a Buddhist meditation teacher, why he thinks spirituality should be playful, how to be with the totality of our experiences, his definition of conscious connections, why enlightenment isn’t a destination but rather a state of consciousness available to all of us at any time, and his call to Australian men to explore what it means to be vulnerable.

EP34: Rachelle Rowlings

For episode 34 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with one of the funniest Australian women on Instagram, Rachelle Rowlings. She pioneered a new type of influence — the honest mum — and for many women navigating life with a newborn, her Instagram account is a lifeline. 

What started as an outlet to express not only her love of fashion but also to rise up from the darkness that came after having her first baby, Rachelle’s Instagram account is now the talk of mothers groups’ across the country. Women read the reality of their own daily struggles in Rachelle’s epic and hilarious captions. There’s also the epic fashion — something we all deserve to admire.

In this honest conversation, Rachelle is unguarded, open and intensely honest. She matches her own quick wit and humour with thoughtful observations and opinions on the topics we all hold close to our hearts — love, death, motherhood, societal pressures, nutrition, fashion, personal development and why happiness doesn’t always look the way we thought it would, and why that’s OK.

EP33: Maeva Heim

For episode 33 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with one to watch, Melbourne-based marketing specialist and haircare entrepreneur, Maeva Heim

Maeva grew up in Perth and like many of us from smaller towns, she had fierce ambition. Maeva’s career story is relatable because it’s common in the very best way. She did an expensive law degree and then realised she couldn’t carry the burden of what it meant to practice, so she step-changed to marketing, content creation and now, product development. 

Maeva is set to revolutionise and democratise the haircare space as we know it. 

At the time of recording, Maeva is developing Australia’s first texture-inclusive haircare brand, Bread Beauty Supply. Sick and tired of feeling under-represented in marketing meetings where discussing shade ranges or using black models was frowned upon, Maeva decided to develop a haircare brand that speaks directly to women of colour who have been taught to chemically relax their hair in order to fit in with society. Bread encourages women to explore and embrace their natural texture. 

Maeva shares important insight into what it feels like to have to physically change yourself in order to be accepted and seen as “professional” in the workplace, and the world at large. She’s a shining example for young women everywhere that when we don’t see ourselves represented in products, in the media or on platforms like Instagram, it’s in our power to change that.

EP32: Nadine Jane Astrology

[The Teachers]

For episode 32 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with New York-based astrologer Nadine Jane.

Nadine curates one of Instagram’s most popular accounts for astrology, offering lovers of celestial study an elevated, intelligent and gentle guide to knowing ourselves better. Her personal readings are empowering and practical. They’re also scarily accurate. 

Nadine gifts her followers with a wealth of free content each week. From full moon reports to the lowdown on lunar eclipses, personalised chart tiles and being the calm voice of reason when a planet turns retrograde, Nadine’s soft and deeply feminine approach to astrology is cherished by so many. 

Alison and Nadine cover quite a bit of ground. Expect to learn about our Sun, Moon and Rising Signs and how they show up in our personalities, what the 12 houses mean, the elements attached to our star signs, why we shouldn’t be fearful when a planet turns retrograde, the truth about star sign compatibility and so much more.

EP31: Holly Ryan

For episode 31 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with talented maker, jeweller and artist, Holly Ryan. Holly’s namesake jewellery line and in-demand sculptures define what it means to create consciously. Handmade in Australia using sustainable materials, Holly creates heirlooms. Her company’s stance on circularity and low waste practices are the example.

Holly generously shares her creative processes, how she maintains her authenticity while working in fashion, dealing with copycats, the disappointing need for us to put on a brave face even in times of grief, how she channelled her pain into her work, our collective tendency to lean on alcohol during hard times, and so much more.

EP30: Zanita Whittington

For episode 30 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with creative director, photographer and Australia’s OG fashion blogger, Zanita Whittington. Currently based in New York, Zanita is a force and continues to pioneer how we think about the intersection of creativity and social influence.

Alison and Zanita discuss pushing creative boundaries, her long-held disinterest in being “accepted” as a blogger, why she sees her ADHD diagnosis as a strength, how to explain our needs to the people in our lives, why it is time to de-stigmatise therapy, life in New York City and the importance of not only having mentors, but also sharing our knowledge with mentees.

EP29: Ask Alison

Host Alison Rice closes season two with an episode dedicated to Offline’s beautiful and nourishing community. She put a call out for questions on Instagram, and answered 14 across topics including true self, spirituality and personal development.

From how to trust we’re on the right path, to dealing with self doubt, her advice to women changing careers after 30, the biggest lesson she learned after leaving her corporate publishing role and what her husband Tony thinks about her journey to better knowing herself, Alison recorded this in one take and without a script. It is imperfect but as always, it is honest.

Season three of Offline commences June 16, 2019.

EP28: Rae Johnston

TV host, women in STEM mentor, tech and gaming journalist, St. Vincent’s De Paul ambassador, mum and proud Wiradjuri woman, Rae Johnston.

While she’s well-known and respected in the cosplay industry for playing Wonder Woman, Rae embodies the character in real life. Compassionate, strong and with an incredible sense of justice, she is a modern role model for women everywhere.

In this episode, Rae shares unique and inspiring lessons taken from her humble beginnings — including what it was like to have $5 left each week after paying her bills and feeding her child as a 19 year-old mum; the disappointing and often-complex realities of being a woman working in gaming, tech and science; her reflections on the trauma she experienced as a young model trying to get her start; her advice to employers on how to attract and support Indigenous talent; and how proposing to her husband was less about challenging gender norms and more about deep love and respect.

This conversation is longer than others, but every minute of it is compelling, educational and inspiring.
