Connecting to Your Higher Purpose with Women in Dharma

We’re coming to you today with one of those topics I would’ve been completely unaware of prior to meeting Sophie! But definitely after spending our fourteenth year together, I now take it for granted the unique, spiritual conversations we have — such as speaking about dharma today. This is a very, very fascinating conversation that also took an interesting direction.

Our guests today, Megan and Krista, the co-founders and directors of Women in Dharma, are two fantastic women who lead guided journeys that will inspire you, awaken your higher self, and transform your being. They want to show women that they can have it all — family, career, and self-fulfillment. They’re also pushing the envelope of how they do business, from equal pay across all their team members and truly working together as a team with equal voices.

In this enlightening episode, we discuss what exactly dharma is; how and why Megan and Krista created their community, Women in Dharma; the other incredible women behind Women in Dharma; how to check in with being in alignment with your dharma; useful, actionable dharma tools such as the enneagram; and some wonderful pieces of advice on how to tap into your dharma and follow your true path.

Relationship Tip of the Week

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone...” in all ways, always — but especially in your relationship. It’s so easy when you’re with the same person for so long to just get complacent because it’s uncomfortable to confront. It’s key to show up and have the ‘uncomfortable conversations’ in order to progress and nurture your relationship.
