  1. I’ve never heard of her before, but thank you so much for sharing! You might already follow her, but I loveee Gala Darling on Instagram + Periscope + bet you would too. She’s very uplifting and spiritual and colorful and promotes “radical self love”

  2. Thanks for sharing this Ted Talk Alex, this was the first time I’d heard of Rachel but I’ll definitely be checking out her Yoga now. I loved Rachel’s message about telling the truth. It’s so true how sharing the real you can really connect with people and yet for various reasons we might be afraid of it. We shouldn’t only share the “perfect” side of things but all parts of life, the good and the bad.

    There are so many people who I think are doing social media right. For one, I love your Instagram posts lately Alex! A perfect mix of personal, inspirational, and educational. I also love Paige’s use of Instagram too, she does an amazing job of showing her creative process with watercolor painting.

  3. I could watch TED Talks all day–and some days I do. 😉
    I was drawn in by the timing of her side pain with her friend’s accident–hearing stories like this you have to consider a larger magic in everything.
    And I thought, too, how brave it is for her to say that. For some reason society has accepted certain forms of inquiry as “scientific” and others as “naïve,” as if our mind and body were totally separate.
    These Tedx ones are so neat: they always have a different slant than the traditional ones!

  4. I was introduced to Rachel Brethen around the time she was sharing about the death of her friend, she was recommended in one of my social media groups as a person to follow who had a connection with her followers. Since then I’ve seen her book in the local bookshop but only followed from a far. This is an inspirational talk!

  5. I hadn’t heard of Rachel, but I am really into the message she’s sharing. (I have been listening to a lot of Brene Brown’s speeches lately, they are also about vulnerability and wholehearted living.)
