In honor of Maria Trinidad Matus, the beautiful woman who's life was cut short last week in a horrific and gruesome rape/murder, I explored the mental health effects and societal causes of femicide for the first episode of the new season of the podcast, Mental Clarity.

“301: Guilty of Being Female: In Memory of Maria Trinidad Matus

Following a tragic rape & murder of a beautiful, young woman, Maria Trinidad Matus, in the small beach town where Rima lives, the epidemic of femicide and violence against women (VAW) is explored. Violence against women comprises a wide range of acts – from verbal harassment, which basically all women endure regularly, to other forms of emotional abuse, to daily physical or sexual abuse. On the other end of the spectrum is femicide: the murder of a woman. What are the mental health effects of violence against women & femicide on an individual & on a community level? What is the impact in general on the community? What are the theories that explore causes of femicide and ways to prevent or decrease femicide? Why does the media misreport rape and crimes against women & what role does patriarchy have to play in all of this? Rima discusses worldwide statistics of femicide, her own theories of the systemic, societal collapse that’s imminent & why we are seeing such horrific displays of violence & hatred, and how we can come together as humans to address & eradicate women as perpetual victims of abuse, rape & murder. In memory of Maria Trinidad Matus #niunamenos

New on the Podcast: WHY YOU SHOULDN’T FEAR THE EBBS & FLOWS OF LIFE

"Rima catches listeners up on her entrepreneurial pursuits, which include low “ebbs” along the way. With all transparency, Rima talks about a lack of motivation, feeling stuck in work & life, & how “ebbs” can be depressing. She shares how she deals with these moments & how it’s actually a good thing to have ups and downs in life. She talks about the importance of creating space for different opportunities to come in & being open for what comes. Sometimes we need a break from our routine or our story to clear all the voices out before we can figure out what we really want for ourselves. As entrepreneurs, it can be challenging to stick to one path, to get focused, & to not do all of the things that come our way, & this episode talks all about dealing with those things & the attachments we collect along the way.”

New on the Podcast.... SURFING, SUSTAINABILITY & UNMUTING THE VOICES OF WOMEN SURFERS - Featuring Tara Ruttenberg

Tara uses the written word & surfing as a metaphor to Identify and discuss a broader experience of women all over felt both in the water and on land… processes that include patriarchy and misogyny, and she uses her experience as a writer and surfer to give voice to women in her own work & in her collaborations with women all over the world (in the book she’s working on, Women's Surf Stories). She’s a well-published author and PhD student who’s specializing in Sustainable Surf Tourism & she travels the world & hosts various events & retreats. In this episode, she talks about putting boundaries in place with her art, the abuse and reactivity she experienced when speaking her voice, being silenced as a woman who’s voice doesn't go along with the mainstream, dating across cultures, coming to Costa Rica in the student abroad program & feeling “home”, being non-attached as an artist & writer, whether to positive or negative feedback, being a program assistant for a study abroad program called Surfing and Sustainability, and more!

New on the podcast with Cristina Kalyani Paes

Cristina Kalyani Paes found her path from a very young age & found herself asking primordial questions that weren’t typical of the time. She had paranormal experiences & was given resources to study about yoga & to work with a paranormal psychologist. From there, she deepened her studies for many years by learning about breathwork, hypnotherapy (from Brian Weiss & Dolores Cannon), yoga philosophy and lifestyle at the Bihar School of Yoga & meditation. A pilgrim, she traveled by horseback for a year and a half around South America, introducing fire dancing and yoga choreography to the unprivileged people in the mountains of Peru with Nomads United, before she settled in Costa Rica 16 years ago. Now, she practices the Yoga of Life, without putting labels or trying to market herself in an inauthentic way. Her work is a culmination of her experiences & knowledge. She wants to see yoga remain what it really is & shares the message that we don’t all need to quit everything, become yoga teachers and monks, and live in the jungle in order to be spiritual. “The world needs all professions, not just yoga teachers. We can always transform the work that we do into something beautiful. Anything we can do to go back to nature is they key - not that we have to release or get rid of our lives.” She talks about the need for community gathering centers in big cities where people can connect and experience a tribe, a place where one can LIVE yoga or spirituality. She’s frustrated with centers and studios that give employment to yoga teachers based on their social media followings and not based on their merit and it causes her to question the integrity of these places. She believes we need to find a balance with yoga as a profession and yoga as a philosophy, and always remain in our authenticity.

New on the Podcast with Maya DeGabrielle - I had so much fun with this sparkly angel!

Sunshine Everyday: Using Positivity to Manifest Your Dream Life

"Maya DeGabrielle lives her life as a true example for all. Never a bad word to say about anybody, she is constantly smiling and brightening the lives of those around her. She left her parents’ house at 16 & went off into the wild, living in numerous paradise-destinations, including Indonesia, Ibiza, South Africa & more, before deciding to settle in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, where she has a Standup Paddleboard company - Sundah Surfers. She gets to be a mermaid all day long as she wows her guests with the simplicity of nature, being present & always having a positive mindset. Even when her beautiful car was stolen, I never heard Maya complain once or say anything negative - hear why she lives her life this way and what it’s done for her. She’s trusting the flow & the calling of her life to fulfill her deepest-rooted desires."
