Spiritual Wellness: Alignment + Scripture + Wholeness = Healing with Tolvi Patterson | Founder, Authentic Movement

Spiritual Wellness: Alignment + Scripture + Wholeness = Healing with Tolvi Patterson | Founder, Authentic Movement

November 2, 2020

Have I got a word for you on today! It's Episode 9 of The Road Trip to Wellness Podcast!

We getting a little bible study, Sunday school and church in this episode ya'll so get ready! I sit down with my good friend Mr. Tolvi R. Patterson, of Authentic Movement for a deep conversation that has been burning on my heart for so long. I was raised in the church and share the gift of teaching much like my grandfather, a church elder, my father and his brothers (mostly all ministers), but spent the majority of my life bewildered and stifled by the rules of "religion". My spiritual journey has created an overflow of questions that have followed me my entire life and I get greater understanding and many of those questions clarified in this episode! HALLELUJAH!

@mr_authenticity patiently breaks down my questions, thoughts and ideas and affirms them with biblical scripture, gentle wisdom and common sense. He teaches us:

  • Down to earth principles for living a "spiritually well" life 
  • About the "still small voice" of God and how to hear it.
  • How living a spiritual well or "Godly" lifestyle is available to everyone not just "religious" people. 

As a teacher, he genuinely focuses on helping people from all walks of life capture their authenticity, embrace who they are now, and create a vision rooted in movement for their future. Mr. Patterson is the founder of Authentic Movement, an ordained minister, mentor, coach, public speaker, strategic consultant, and leader within his community. I'm so grateful to get to share him with you!

Episode 7: Maternal Child Health & Navigating New Motherhood with Shelby Royster

September 15, 2020

NEW EPISODE 6 |  Road Trip to Wellness Podcast!⁠

Shelby Royster started her wellness journey in culinary school where she quickly grew her passion for healthy lifestyles. She has encountered many twists and turns on her Road Trip to Wellness. She is Vegan, a Certified Holistic Health Coach, and has worked in non-profit spaces where she advocates for health equity. All of this has led her to what she feels is the most important part of her journey, Motherhood. ⁠

As a new mom, Shelby is passionate about giving her baby girl the best, while helping to educate other Black women on how to do the same. She is currently pursuing a degree in Healthcare Management, which she plans to use to help her reach more Women of Color, teaching them to advocate for themselves in spaces that have infamously diminished their voices.⁠

Shelby is a powerful voice in the health space and she is now using that voice as a black woman and mother!

Disclaimer: this is a LONG episode...but definitely worth the listen!
