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.
