Vedic astrologer Dalia Gencher on evolving beyond our karma and how to step into 2021 with clarity.

For episode 73 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with Vedic astrologer, Sattva Yoga teacher and holistic kinesiologist, Dalia Gencher

This episode is for anyone who is looking for higher answers to questions like: 

  • What is karma and can we overcome it?
  • What is purpose if it’s not actually linked to our careers?
  • How do we align to what is most evolutionary for us?
  • How can we use our birth chart to find direction and clarity?
  • Cosmically, what happened in 2020 and what can we expect in 2021?

The pair also explore the spiritual practice of Japa — one of the most profound Yogic technologies accessible to us. It has the power to completely rewrite the neural pathways in our brains. 

In celebration of Japa and its power to transform our lives, Alison and Dalia also announce a special 40-day Offline Group Japa Journey commencing on November 24, 2020. You can learn more about it in this episode or enrol at the link below.

Empowerment and performance coach Carson Tueller on re-writing the narratives we’ve created about ourselves.

In episode 72 of Offline, host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with Carson Tueller, a performance and empowerment coach based in New York City. His coaching methodology is rooted in the philosophy that our lives are lived inside of the narratives we’ve created about ourselves, our circumstances, and our experiences. 

Let that sink in for a moment. How much of the way you identify in the world is based on a story? A story about where you’ve come from, what you’ve been through or what your job title requires you to be? 

This episode stands for new perspectives and new beginnings. For reframes and radical acceptance. Carson is an educator, an activist and an advocate. 

In this honest conversation, Carson shares his journey to coming out as a queer man, the major life event that led him to step into his purpose as an empowerment coach, what true disability advocacy looks like, acknowledging unconscious ableism, why we need to re-examine our definition of sex, pleasure as a spectrum of feelings and why it’s OK for empowerment coaches to feel disempowered sometimes.

Zara and Michelle from Shameless on privacy, therapy, navigating criticism and building a modern media company.

For episode 71 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with the hosts of Shameless the podcast, Zara McDonald and Michelle Andrews. 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be catapulted into the public sphere with one of your best friends before the age of 25? Oh, and add to that the whole thing is being recorded and millions of people are not only listening and enjoying what you say, but some are also judging and critiquing what you say.

As a fellow podcaster Alison has, which is why she has so much respect for her two guests. 

The timing couldn’t be more perfect for these three women and podcasters to record together. Zara and Michelle recently released their first book, The Space Between, which is dedicated to the mess and madness of our twenties. It is as fun as it is nuanced and deep. 

In this honest conversation, Zara and Michelle open about navigating privacy, learning which stories are theirs to tell, how being rejected from mainstream networks was the throughway to their success, the importance of therapy to process their experiences, how they’re thinking about building a modern media business in 2020 and beyond, and so much more. 

Alison hopes you love getting to know two of Australia’s most exciting, young media pioneers on a deeper level.

Evolutionary astrologer Daisy Clementine Douglas on how the Natal Chart can reveal why our soul incarnated.

In episode 70 of Offline, host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with evolutionary astrologer Daisy Clementine Douglas. She’s on a mission to help people understand why their soul incarnated. 

In this episode, Daisy explains why our birth chart is a reflection of everything we already are, and also shares what parts of our chart relate to things like our unique gifts, our work and our karmic path. 

This episode was recorded in March 2020 when Australia was in its first lockdown, and Daisy reveals what she believes is at play cosmically for this year. Alison was particularly intrigued to learn that Capricorn is asking us to look more deeply at patriarchal constructs and definitions of success.

Dr. Evan Sgammotta on the transformational power of the Neuro Emotional Technique.

For episode 69 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with chiropractor, certified Neuro Emotional Technique (N.E.T.) practitioner and founder of Selph Health Studios, Dr. Evan Sgammotta.

N.E.T. is an approach to stress reduction that focuses on breaking behavioural patterns and stress points that can show up physically in the body. It also helps symptoms related to trauma and unresolved stressful events, by helping to eliminate conditioned emotional responses and prevent recurring patterns of pain. It compliments chiropractic and borrows from acupuncture and kinesiology. 

Alison’s own interpretation after being treated by Dr. Sgammotta, is that it’s an emotional clearing of sorts. She spent nine months sitting with what came up in her session before having an honest conversation with Dr. Sgammotta. In less than five minutes, he got to the root of why she suffers from anxious attachment — something she hasn’t spoken about on Offline before.

In this episode, Dr. Sgammotta explains what N.E.T. is, how it gets to work on such a deep level, and what to expect in a session. He also shares how he’s thinking about what’s next in the realm of emotional healing, including generational clearing. 

If you’re suffering from a chronic emotion and the stress associated with it, Alison hopes this episode helps you.

Fashion creative Zeenat Wilkinson on getting her start in media, moving abroad to further her career and Buddhism.

In episode 68 of Offline, host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with New Zealand-based freelance fashion creative and founder of Sauce, Zeenat Wilkinson. 

Zeenat grew up in Mumbai and completed a degree in psychology before leaving to study fashion at Central Saint Martins in London. Today, she lives in New Zealand with her husband and their new baby girl. 

This episode honours the journey to successfully making a living as a fashion and lifestyle creative. Zeenat shares how she got her start in media, what it was like working for titles like Vogue India, why she chose to move to London to study at such a prestigious creative college and how being personally impacted by the lack of diversity in media publications led her to create Sauce — a community-led platform that exists to showcase and celebrate diversity of voice, ideas and skin colour. 

She also opens up about her journey into motherhood and how her decade-long dedication to practicing Buddhism helped her find the courage to leave a relationship. This is a very personal story Alison is grateful Zeenat shared with the intention of normalising our tendency to make decisions that please other people but devalue our own needs.

Goop’s chief content officer Elise Loehnen on why they will never stop fighting against the silencing of all that is unseen, felt and intrinsically known.

For episode 67 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with Goop’s chief content officer, Elise Loehnen

Goop is a wellness brand that offers its audience of progressive and curious thinkers, content, products and experiences that seek to crack open taboos and start new conversations. 

It’s safe to say you’re either Goopy or you’re not and if you hit play on this episode, you’ll likely do so identifying as one or the other. Either way, we welcome you.

If you listen to Goop’s podcast or maybe you’ve seen the brand’s Netflix special, you’ll be all too familiar with Elise’s signature style of communicating. She’s explored, expressed, open, articulate and deeply reflective. A joy to interview. 

In this episode, she shares the journey from working as an assistant returning products at Lucky Magazine, to leading editorial projects at Conde Nast Traveler, co-authoring books for names like Sophia Amoruso and Ellen DeGeneres, before finally settling in with Gwyneth Paltrow in 2008 to help her expand and scale Goop. 

Elise also shares strategic and helpful career advice, what she learnt from her first mentor, why we need to continue challenging patriarchal ideals (even when people try to tear us down) and why Goop will never stop fighting against the silencing of all that is unseen, felt and intrinsically known.

Danielle Prescod on representation, the benefits of therapy, freezing her eggs and giving up Instagram.

For episode 66 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with New York City style director, Danielle Prescod

Danielle is currently the Style Director at Black Entertainment Television, and before that, she held fashion roles at Marie Claire, Elle, Teen Vogue and Interview.

The New Yorker is as authentic as it gets on Instagram. One of the things Alison loves most about her presence on the platform, is it has nothing to do with her job. She’s never pushing her followers to buy things. Instead, she chooses to use her platform to educate. 

If you follow Danielle, you’ll know that she leads social conversations centered on calling out systemic racism daily, and she’s a guiding light when it comes to holding the fashion industry, influencers and media accountable, for our ongoing failure to acknowledge, support and elevate Black people, their voices and their work.

Alison and Danielle recorded this episode in March 2020. Australia was about to go into lockdown and being in the States, Danielle had already been in isolation for some time. Since then, to say a lot has happened is an understatement. 

Danielle has been a key voice within New York City’s fashion community during the Black Lives Matter movement — directing Alison and other white people to the resources she was sharing years before we finally started to listen with the intent to learn. And she’s also developing new resources. For free. For our benefit.

In this episode’s introduction, Alison calls out her failure to ask Danielle any direct questions about racism and allyship. This is an example of her privilege and her ignorance. She shares that her failure to give airtime to an experience that doesn’t impact her or her world as a white woman makes her complicit in the silencing of Black voices and experiences.

Despite Alison’s failure, their pair cover an interesting set of topics in this honest conversation. Danielle shares how she’s producing content for women during an international pandemic, how she thinks about telling stories, giving up Instagram twice, the benefits of therapy, her decision to freeze her eggs at age 30 and her advice to brands and businesses on getting representation and inclusion right.

P.E. Nation co-founder Pip Edwards opens up about confidence, honouring her emotions and making space for love.

In this special Self Care Sundays mini-series produced by Studio Offline and in partnership with Estée Lauder, host Alison Rice sits down with the brand’s Australian ambassadors and experts to have an honest conversation about life on the other side of the filter.

This season, the mini-series explores our collective relationship with the word confidence. What does confidence really mean to women and what does having it help us to achieve?

The topic and series celebrates Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation, a product that allows women to wear confidence and feel empowered to take on the day. 

Alison’s next guest is P.E. Nation co-founder and Estée Lauder Australia ambassador, Pip Edwards. The pair first sat down in 2018 (episode eight) and 19 months later they catch up again, this time to talk through a more personal lens. 

Pip shares openly and honestly about confidence and what it means to her, turning 40 and the confronting realities that can come with that number, her recent reflections about her ambition, choices, and the sacrifices she’s had to make, being a single parent and making space for love, raising a conscious son, using fashion to express the way she’s feeling and why her makeup is no longer a mask.

Scientist and model Zinnia Kumar on colourism, the serious issue of skin colour stigma in South Asia and why science and spirituality can co-exist.

For episode 64 of Offline, host Alison Rice has an honest conversation with scientist, chartered ecologist and model, Zinnia Kumar

Zinnia grew up in Western Sydney in a low socio-economic area, and following some deeply impactful advice from her chemistry teacher, she applied herself within the public education system and became the first in her family to go to university. 

What was the advice? She told Zinnia that if she worked hard, she could be anything she wanted to be. Zinnia hasn’t looked back. 

An introvert who self-diagnosed and treated her own social phobia as a teenager, she now lives in London and is studying for a doctorate in colourism at Oxford University. A published scientist, Zinnia has focused her research on human attraction, examining beauty standards and ideals, and more recently, colourism — specifically the serious issue of skin colour stigma in South Asia.

Recorded in April 2020, this honest conversation is an entry point to learning more about skin colour discrimination and representation. Zinnia also opens up about modelling, the racism she experienced from Australian agencies, the potentially life-saving reading she had with a palmist, why science and spirituality can co-exist and why she chooses to practice equanimity. 

Zinnia is fascinating and she’s a woman we can learn from.
