EP27: Jerico Mandybur ~ Part 1

[The Teachers] In episode 27 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with intuitive guide, spiritual self-care coach, tarot reader, reiki practitioner, journalist and podcaster, Jerico Mandybur. An Australian living in LA, the Self Service host led editorial at Girl Boss Media but recently made the decision to expand.

In part one of their honest conversation, Jerico and Alison discuss how difficult it is to leave a job you love to prioritise your mental and physical wellbeing, why it’s important not to give all of yourself to a job or an employer, what the term self-care actually means in practice, and also dive deep on Jerico’s enchanting and inclusive new tarot book and cards, Neo Tarot.

A note from the host: The Internet connection wasn’t great so apologies for the random glitches!

EP26 Live at Sundays Offline: Jasmine Dowling

A very honest conversation recorded in front of over 70 listeners, Jasmine opens up about fighting big corporates for her creative copyright, what it feels like to be critiqued on Instagram, the emotional labour of DMs and how she began her career as a hand-letterer, designer and leading digital creative.

Bonus: Revisiting Jeannie Bourke

As she records Sundays Offline live in Brisbane, host Alison Rice throws it back to episode one. Maybe you’ve heard it, maybe you haven’t, either way healer Jeannie Bourke is one of the foundational reasons Offline exists. Profound. Special. Ethical. Majestic. Wise. The founder of Venustus Beauty Lab defines true self.

This episode was recorded in mid 2018.

EP25: Tom Derickx

Musician, model and ex-AFL player, Tom Derickx. Offline exists as an exploration of self and as we journey deeper, it’s important to show both the light and the shade. For some, our sense of self is veiled by anxiety and for others, it’s the dark night of depression. In this episode and for the first time, Tom bravely shares the thing he’s held closest to him — his battle with both.

Alison and Tom hope that for the people listening who are also caring for their mental health, or who are a support person or want to find out how to be one, that this honest conversation helps.

EP24: Juliet Allen

[The Teachers] Offline exists as an exploration of self, and we can’t do that without exploring our sexual essence. In this episode, leading Australian sexologist and coach, Juliet Allen, takes us there.

In this very honest conversation, Juliet and Alison discuss everything from sex as a pathway to healing, the importance of polarity of sexual energies in the bedroom, how to use our sexual energy to attract what we want in life, why our cycle is sacred, how to ask for what we truly desire, porn vs. connected sex, and why it is time to redefine the word slut.

Trigger warning: Some parts of this honest conversation are difficult and confronting — both the language we use and the topics we explore. This includes miscarriage and loss. Alison advises not to have kids around for this one.
