    Ep. 117 Meet My Girlfriend Kris

    53:43

    In this week's episode I am joined by my girlfriend, Kris! Y'all have been asking for this podcast to happen and I finally begged enough to make it happen. I will preface this episode by saying that Kris is a very introverted and private person with an avoidant attachment style, so to say that doing this was a challenge for her would be an understatement. While she is completely fine being pictured on social media, Kris coming on the podcast felt super daunting to her. I asked her multiple times if she wanted to skip it all together, but she decided to do it! I am proud of her for overcoming her fears and diving into the experience. In this episode we cover how we met, the status of our relationship, the truth behind her previous relationship with Braunwhyn Windham-Burke from the RHOC, and where we see our relationship heading. We also answered a bunch of your Q&A from Instagram.     If you or someone you know needs addiction treatment please visit www.ororecovery.com   Follow Alexis (@itsalexishaines), join our Facebook group, and follow @recoveringfromreality on Instagram to stay up to date on all things RFR!

    Ep. 108 Politics and Spirituality Are Not Mutually Exclusive with Marianne Williamson

Marianne is a bestselling author, political activist and spiritual thought leader.   For over three decades Marianne has been a leader in spiritual and religiously progressive circles. She is the author of 14 books, four of which have been #1 New York Times best sellers. A quote from the mega best seller A Return to Love, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers.   Williamson founded Project Angel Food  a non-profit that has delivered more than 13 million meals to ill and dying homebound patients since 1989. The group was created to help people suffering from the ravages of HIV/AIDS. They have since expanded their service to any person battling critical illness. She has also worked throughout her career on poverty, anti-hunger and racial reconciliation issues. She has advocated for reparations for slavery since the 1990’s and was the first candidate in the 2020 presidential primary season to make it a pillar of her campaign. In 2004, she co-founded The Peace Alliance and supports the creation of a U.S. Department of Peace. In addition, she advocates for a cabinet level Department of Children and Youth to adequately address the chronic trauma of millions of American children. (Bio via Marianne.com)   We dive into the following topics… - The connection between spirituality and politics - Our purpose as humans to love others above all else - The widespread prevalence of childhood traumas in America - How ineffective and classist the American economy is and how we can shift this - So much more!   Read Lost Connections by Johann Hari   Follow Alexis (@itsalexishaines), join our Facebook group, and follow @recoveringfromreality on Instagram to stay up to date on all things RFR!
