In this episode, I chat with my friend and founder of Mxe, Heather Corndorf. Here’s just a snippet of what she had to say:
“Heather: Right and that these are all the the core values are, these are internal words at MXE, and it’s our vision. So, on the surface, it looks like we’re, you know, moving around and dancing, laughing which we are, but the whole purpose I see this vision that these people that coming in, they are going to love themselves unconditionally.

And I think that a lot of that has to do with the lack of self love.

Personal growth was not only for childhood. We are all walking around, wounded in some way. For this planet to heal, and for us humans to continue to evolve, we must begin ourselves. If we don’t fully recognize our human stories for what they have to teach us, hoping instead, that by ignoring them they will go away, we will never actually be freeRead More
But now I’ve learned the importance of empowering myself. When it comes from within, it’s a completely different kind of power. It is not a contingent or conditional power. It simply is a part who we are.Read More
“Anyone can become angry, that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and at the right time, and for the right purpose and in the right way that is not within everyone’s power. And it’s not easy.” Aristotle anger Anger is a challenging emotion because it…Read More
We did not come into this body to be quiet or safe. We did not choose to be alive in this time and place to be sidelined, victimized, or used. We did not choose to call this endangered planet home only to be ignorant, dismissive, complicit, or bought and paid for in its demise. No…Read More
