Find out!   In the episode, Heather and Kute discuss: What keeps us from surrendering  What resistance is really about  How to meet resistance with compassion  Getting frustrated with ourselves for not surrendering  What exactly an ego is  Ego is a process. It's conditioning that enables our protective mechanisms.  Why we are our radiant selves as children and how fear and resistance happen as we get older.  How our parents, and their histories, shape us  Disconnecting from our hearts to not feel the pain, which buries our true essence in unprocessed layers of emotion  How positive reinforcement can also create ego issues for us later on  How to get available to the flow again  Levels of surrender    Kute Blackson is a beloved inspirational speaker and transformational teacher. He speaks at countless events he organizes around the world as well as at outside events including A-Fest, YPO (Young Presidents' Organization), and EO (Entrepreneurs' Organization).

Comfort foods being associated with comforting experiences as a child How to relate to desire in a way that's healthy Why people who live alone may get sweet cravings late at night An answer to the question “What is Ayurveda?” Why each food is neither healthy, nor unhealthy, and why determining whether something is actually healthy requires us to look at how it is being used The relationship between environmental sustainability and human health Our unhealthy relationship with waste How what we choose to eat impacts the environment around us and the people around us   Madison Madden is a practitioner of Ayurvedic Medicine, Sustainability Educator, and expert Yoga & Somatic Practitioner.

She also addresses the importance of maintaining optimism as really smart people work to improve the system.  In this episode, Heather and Erika discuss:  Healthcare industry is responsible for 10% of US greenhouse gases.   Healthcare generates 5.9 million tons of waste per year and 25% of that is plastic  Healthcare system uses 2.5 times the energy of a commensurate commercial building because of all the technology.  Why if we can get it right in healthcare, it will pave the way for other industries  The majority of materials used in a hospital setting are single-use plastics.  The environmental challenge we have with buying supplements and herbs from overseas, including a lack of sustainable packaging  Why the goal is to have healthy materials, used in optimal amounts, and processed in ways that benefit the environment at end of life  How to improve sustainability in healthcare without driving up costs  Conservation in healthcare. For example, how to we waste less and how do we take better care of our things.  Implementing circular economy principles in healthcare  How today the healthcare system is contributing to breaks in biological cycles  The rise of green chemistry – and how that could produce healthier materials for healthcare  The big problem of single-use plastics in healthcare  Some of the sustainable policies and practices that are being implemented now in healthcare practices and hospitals  How hospitals and doctors and healthcare workers get involved in climate action  Why the social determinants of health are environmental determinants of health  How do we operate in a way that supports those health goals  Why sustainability in healthcare, like COVID, is an all-hands-on-deck moment  The biggest change that the healthcare system could implement that would make a dramatic effect on the environment    Erika Kimball is a sustainability leader who works to reduce the environmental impact of healthcare. She advises hospitals and healthcare companies on sustainability and climate action, healthy materials, circular economy principles, and sustainable policy and practices. A nurse by training, Erika takes a holistic approach to healthcare change management, building the systems, relationships, and capacity to achieve better environmental outcomes. kimballsustainablehealthcare.com   Heather Grzych is the author of The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility and the host of the Wisdom of the Body podcast.
