The Amber Hawken Podcast

As the founder of Amber Hawken and Calm Mind Project, Amber questions, unpacks and simplifies the paradox of being a spiritual being in this human experience. In her solo sessions and expert guest interviews, Amber asks the important questions, like, how can we be human with less suffering, and more joy, love, growth, impact and purpose? Through clarity comes understanding and from understanding comes aligned action and wisdom. This podcast interviews experts on life science, spirituality, psychology, relationships, mental, nutritional, physical and emotional wellbeing, and entrepreneurship to alchemise confusion and fear into clarity and aligned action. Each episode has real time transformational exercises and/or techniques that can be integrated into everyday life to ensure maximum impact for the time you invest listening. Each episode will enable you to get back to what’s true and vital; your true nature and how to get there in each moment, over and over again.

Emily Anne Peterson is the kind of woman that people make movies about. 

Emily is a bravery expert. 

Her life is jaw dropping. Well, more correctly, the way she chooses to live it is. The way she has dealt with one of the most confronting experiences that one could face; having (what seemed like her entire purpose) stripped from her. The woman also did a TEDx talk. Another reason why she is my hero.

She was once a full-time cellist and cello teacher. But in December of 2013, she was diagnosed with a degenerative, hereditary, neurological tremor in her right hand, her bow hand.

She called it her other biological clock.

As you can imagine, it was shattering news for her. Of course, she handled it like a boss. 

And this is exactly why you need to listen to this episode. There comes a time in all our lives where we are faced with a make or break moment.

We learn so much from how Emily managed not only an eating disorder, but a tremor that brought her dreams (at the time) to a halt. 


My fav take aways in this episode:

- What to do when life falls apart

- Where to go from rock bottom and the slow but simple journey out of darkness

- It's okay to not be okay, for more than a few days, even months

- How bravery and courage aren't how to sound

- How to recovery and still work through the impulses and battle of an eating dis-order

- How to be brave and courageous, no matter what

- How to turn your devastations into life transformation

- How our life purpose is fluid

- That break downs are breakthroughs, and how to do the work (yes we must work) to get through

- What vulnerability, bravery and courage have to do with being an artist (of your life) and that there is no other way


So yeah, it was amazing. Enjoy and please, connect with Em and let us know what you thought my rating this episode and leaving us a comment about how it helped you!
