Recipe for Reinvention with Sadie Nardini + DJ Taz
At the Yoga Journal conference last week, my path crossed Sadie Nardini and DJ Taz. We recorded in a hot car at Estes Park, with the windows closed for better audio quality. We hope you appreciate that extra pit-stinking effort we made for you, listeners. We enjoyed conversing together, so if you like this, share it, and we’re more likely to do it again. The conversation goes past the surface level of reinvention as a simple career change to the deeper level of changing your habits, creating a better relationship with yourself, and fostering evolutionary change. These ingredients are key parts of the recipe for reinvention.
It’s all a question of how you want your life to be now. Of whether or not your habits orient towards your growth or maintaining the status quo. Of giving yourself the permission to create the time and space to reset.
Listen in on the conversation, check out the recipe for reinvention, and shift how you show up in your life.
