Reclaiming Our Soul’s Desires with “Free to Be” Author Shirin Etessam

Reclaiming Our Soul's Desires with Free to Be Author Shirin Etessam

On today’s show, we’re talking with my friend and author, Shirin Etessam, about how to reclaim our soul’s desires and lean into the transformative power of play. Shirin also shares her journey of darkness and self-discovery after a devastating breakup, which eventually led her to write “Free to Be: A Six-Week Guide to Reclaiming Your Soul.” She teaches us how to detox our minds, hearts, and souls to gain clarity and live closer to our true purpose.

Shirin Etessam believes in the transformative power of play. She is an entrepreneur, media executive, master storyteller, and author. She wrote the book FREE TO BE: A Six-Week Guide To Reclaiming Your Soul, which features easy-to-digest daily exercises that will lead you toward a life of deep fulfillment and lasting contentment. 

We discuss:

  • How to tap into our true essence.
  • Shirin’s six-week process to change our lives and reclaim our souls.
  • How play is essential to well-being and discovering our play personality type.
  • The difference between our heart and our soul’s signals.
  • Embracing grief as an influential teacher.
  • How not to believe everything we think.
  • Practicing mindfulness, awareness, and detachment.

Shirin says: You’re Not Too F***ing Old! to play! Make sure to read “Free to Be: A Six-Week Guide to Reclaiming Your Soul.” (Amazon)
