Episode 6 – Nico Rijelle

Video Coming Soon


In this episode I sit down with Nico Rijelle, who is a single mother and entrepreneur. Alongside her health coaching business which she has run for over 15 years, she has pursued an all-embracing and adventurous approach to life and business.

She has worked with the non-profit, Love Never Fails World Charity, which is dedicated to saving victims of human trafficking, authored two books, and created an award-winning yoga based board game.

We got into a fantastic conversation about how to turn Envy into Inspiration, what it means to tap into your heart’s innate guidance (and explored a practice to help make that happen!), and the three things you need to enjoy a fulfilling, meaningful, and energized life.  We also explored the challenges as well as the possibilities of enlightened living to be found in relationships, the power of Agape, and the wisdom to be found in the Coyote Medicine of our modern times.

You can learn more about Nico and what she’s all about at: uptheoryla.com and nicolerijelle.com


It was another fantastic conversation with an amazing human being.

We hope you enjoy!

Video Coming Soon!In this episode I speak with Chris Finn who has been a quadriplegic since 1992. Chris is determined to not only walk again, but do so with a healthy, strong, and balanced body; and he’s taking you along for the ride.

**In the episode when I wrongly defined the term bodhisattva as one who puts off their own enlightenment for the sake of helping others.

In actuality, “… a Bodhisattva attempts to achieve enlightenment as quickly as possible in order to be of greater benefit to the (other) living beings.”  Taken from the book, Training the Mind in the Great Way by Gyalwa Gendun Druppa, the first Dalai Lama
