As we slowly resurface from an intense year of emotion, grief, and isolation, many of us are not only carrying our own heightened feelings but also the energy and emotions of those around us. For people who are highly sensitive or empathic, those external feelings create an even bigger impact, and life can be difficult to manage, especially right now.

Renowned intuitive and energy healer Dana Childs joins us for a powerful conversation on navigating life with ease and purpose as an empath. We’ll discuss how to identify if you’re an empath, tools for managing your empathic abilities, and even how to parent an empath. We will also deconstruct how being an empath can impact your romantic relationships.

Whether you’re looking to better understand yourself, learn to manage your empathic gifts, or better support your energy field, this webinar will be full of information that can be used in all aspects of your life. When you know more about who you are, you can share your authentic heart to all those you love.

 At NUSHU, we spend a lot of time understanding the self-limiting beliefs, social conditioning and internal obstacles that stifle a woman’s ability to step fully into her power. Being a woman is challenging, but so is being a man.

We’re excited to welcome Connor Beaton, a leading men’s work facilitator and philosopher, to the NUSHU Thought Leader Series for an honest conversation on the expectations, pressures and limiting beliefs involved with being a man.

Connor is a NY-based coach, teacher, and speaker who helps men (and women) from all over the world walk though their darkness and grow in the realms of mental clarity and relational communication, actualizing their potential and sexual intimacy. He is the founder of Mantalks, a men's personal growth brand that is dedicated to creating better men. Using the Mantalks Podcast and his online men's community, Connor influences thousands of men to do their inner work to be better fathers, husbands, and brothers to each other.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss taboos of the masculine and what Connor calls the most dangerous rule of being a man: If you’re struggling, don’t talk about it. What does toxic masculinity look like, and conversely, how does the divine masculine show up?

We all hold feminine and masculine energy, no matter how we identify along the lines of gender and sexuality. How can understanding the masculine help us to partner better, understand our partner better, and show up in the world embracing who we are fully without needing to deny any part of ourselves?

Registered Dietitian Lisa Hayim joins us for a conversation on the "anti-diet" and taking a modern approach to mindful eating.

We make 200+ food choices per day – that’s a logistical nightmare when you’re obsessed with controlling what you can eat, when you can eat, and how much you can eat…

If “listening to your body” was easy, we'd all be doing it and that is why we’re excited to welcome registered dietitian Lisa Hayim to the NUSHU Thought Leader Series. A self-proclaimed anti-diet practitioner, Lisa does her work from a deep place of love, maintaining your self-worth is not tied nor related to your body image, food choices, or how much you exercise.

More and more people are embracing the idea that being healthy should make you feel good—satisfied, satiated, and filled with energy—rather than deprived, hungry, and weak, which sounds great, but where do we start? Moreover, how do we unlearn years of conditioning as it relates to our diet and nutrition?

In this webinar, we’ll discuss what a healthy relationship to food looks like and the steps you can take to foster one. Lisa will explain how traditional dieting can harm your health why an anti-diet approach doesn't mean anti-nutrition. Together, we’ll take away tools to notice the "noise” and practices for tapping into the body’s inner wisdom to create a state of connection from within.
