The Crumbling & The Calling

In this episode


Together we explore whether reaching rock bottom can truly activate our purpose.

While many know Maude as an actress in the popular historical drama series Vikings, her story stretches way beyond our TV screens. Like so many of us, Maude’s life was transformed by hitting rock bottom. When many key parts of her life came crumbling down all at once, Maude found solace and purpose in mindfulness, meditation, and yoga, her learnings of which she now shares through her online membership community EnergyRise. My conversation with Maude explores so many themes around the power of surrendering, the importance of creating space to listen deeply and be seen, and how nature can help us to attune to the multiple rhythms that life holds us in. This episode is truly a journey of rediscovery, resilience, and resonance.

“Don’t be afraid of the black hole. The kindest thing you can do for yourself is to just let it fall away. The quicker you do that, the quicker you start to rebuild.”

— Maude Hirst
