Episode 9: Anna Toonk

 

Anna Toonk is the premier connecter of lady witches in NYC. Her ability to reach out and create relationships astounds me – and is, naturally, how we met! Anna is an intuitive healer using tools like tarot, channeling, and crystals to support her one-on-one clients and lead super rad events all over New York. 

In this episode, Anna opens up about finding spirituality as an adult, transitioning from a 6-figure production career to full-time witchin’, and how to have healthy boundaries around being of service. We dive into running a business like a business, what to do when people ask for free readings, moving through the world in a larger body, and learning to be ok with disappointing people.

Anna is a dreamboat full of truthiness medicine. Check out the podcast below or on the platform of your choice!

Episode 8: Amber Magnolia Hill

 

Amber Magnolia Hill of Aquarian Dawn was one of my first herb world girl crushes. Her honesty and transparency about her life and her business have been a model for me in the online marketing space, and I am so grateful that she took time to speak with me for this episode.

Amber is an herbalist, educator, mother, and writer who addresses topics like women’s health and grief head-on. I stand in awe of her healthy boundaries (her email autoresponder is EPIC and makes me hope I can be that confident someday) and her growing product line. In this episode, we jump into running a business while being a mother, story and myth as medicine, and being unemployable.

There is some serious St. John’s Wort fangirling, eloquent words from Amber on our collective yearning for ancestral knowledge, and a potentially polarizing discussion of nutrition and veganism. So fun! Check it out below or on the podcasting platform of your choice.

Note: This was a mountain-to-mountain recording and we definitely had some internet-related tech issues. I’ve edited where possible, but in the interest of keeping Amber’s message intact, there are some kind of wacky sounds. Thank you for your patience, and enjoy the crazy noises of rural internet!
