The Refined Collective Podcast

Apr 3, 2018

The Refined Collective is back this week with the lovely Joanne Encarnacion. She is a wife, mother of two, and editor and founder of, a blog dedicated to redefining health and wellness, and it a newly integrative health and life coach. You guys, Arianna Huffington named her one of San Francisco’s top 20 wellness role models. How amazing is that? In this episode we get real about moving through struggles both within and with others, and body diversity.

Joanne talks about how she felt the need to prove herself as an adult in this world because she was a mother at 21. “I was trying to find my self-worth in this space called the universe.”

I’m going to leave you with something Jo said that is just so powerful:

“The moment that we are able to give space for others to really just be- and I don’t want to say ‘be themselves’ because people are still trying to figure out what that is- but just to be, just to feel as if they can take up space in the world, we would all be able to live relentlessly.”

I mean, how great is that? You’re here and you’re worthy.

Joanne has so much more goodness to share.  Check out the episode and let us know what you think!  And thank you to White Rabbit NY for sponsoring this episode of The Refined Collective Podcast.  And to our Patreon Supporters thank you for being on the journey with us!
