Recorded September 25, 2021 @ 8pm

Our first LIVEstream and I'm so excited about it! This event was everything I could have wanted for my first time LIVE! and BABYYYYY! It was litty LOL... During this LIVE you'll hear healthy conversation, chatter and discussion as we paint, and get sexually #UZIPPED and educated.  Please keep a healthy and open mind for us. 

Bringing you the first of a four (4) part series, UnZipped | Art, Empowerment, Erotica Paint Party, was powered by Cocoa_erotica and dedicated to #blklove #blkintimacy. The love child of Art & Sexual Therapy.  Sherrita Niles, creator of the cocoa_erotica movement designed UNZIPPED to eliminate the stigma of black sexuality. At UNZIPPED, you are being handed the keys to your sexual freedom. Allowing you to unlock your ability to explore from a place of dignity and empowerment. UNZIPPED is going deeper than being naked or nasty. This is all about intimately connecting and authentic love. We're taking it all off! NOT YA CLOTHES but the fear shame and judgement that's attached to women expressing their sexuality. 

Listen in on conversation with vendors and guests to educate yourself on local sexy and empowering products and services. You'll hear us discuss our paintings (guess what we painted!!), and hear healthy and intimate discussions related to sexual freedom, self-pleasure, sensory deprivation sex, how to communicate your sexual needs and SO MUCH MORE!

Enjoy this sexy 2 hour LIVESTREAM with Rona and @roadtrip2wellness! UNZIPPED wants you to see how far your imagination can go!

Creating Consistency in Your Spiritual Practice Using the Psalms

Creating Consistency in Your Spiritual Practice Using the Psalms

September 15, 2021

Having a consistent, daily, spiritual practice has been so rewarding for me, although it hasn't been easy and I don't always hit it just right. Life happens! 


In this episode, Road Trip to Wellness, Creator, Rona Dixon, discusses the reasons and benefits of having a consistent spiritual ritual, practice or devotion time, ways you can begin and other tools to amplify the energy and vibrations when you practice. There is no right or wrong way! This is personal to each and every one person. 


I decided to start making the Psalms a aprt of my daily practice when I received the book Powers of the Psalms by Anna Riva as a gift from a dear friend. This books shows 375 to use the Psalms to for love, power, revenge, success, blessings, protection and much more! I love this book so much, and I explain why so listen, subscribe and share!

The author of eight books, she was a regular Healthy Living contributor to The Huffington Post and has frequently starred as a Healthy Living Expert on and Tampa NBC affiliate Daytime TV. As a former Director of International Development for the American Board of Hypnotherapy, she is a pioneer in subconscious dynamics and clinical hypnotherapy worldwide.. She also spearheaded a healthy lifestyle retraining program with an Astra-Zeneca Foundation grant at one of the nation’s largest clinics.

Dr. Rose developed her practical and delicious eating philosophy to overcome a debilitating auto-immune disorder, which she combined with her background in psychology to launch the Academy's coaching program. "From training therapists internationally in the fields of psychology and hypnotherapy to being an online mentor for two West Coast Universities, to founding the Natural Wellness Academy, teaching has always been my passion. I enjoy nothing more than informing and inspiring prospective coaches and therapists."  She resides in Tampa, Florida and currently working on her 9th book – this time a metaphysical, historical novel.


In this episode of the RTTW Podcast, we explore to understand Subconcious Dynamics, Hynosis & Hypnotherapy and it's role in Past Life Regression work. 

Subconscious dynamics are simple procedures designed to communicate in ways that enhance your chances for getting more positive and permanent results, directly to the deeper recesses of your mind.

Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy: essentially tells your consciousness to take a backseat and lets you turn your attention inward to that deeper sense of the unconscious self, temporarily suspending the mind's critical faculties. Just like how you can zone out and daydream without actually seeing what’s going on, hypnosis allows you to direct your thoughts without actually engaging your mind. 

Past life regression is a technique that attempts to use hypnosis in order to recover memories from previous lives.

Natural Beauty: Plant-Based Skin & Body Care with Tiffany Bailey | Master Herbalist & Licensed Aesthetician

Natural Beauty: Plant-Based Skin & Body Care with Tiffany Bailey | Master Herbalist & Licensed Aesthetician

June 5, 2021

2019 was the starting point of me paying greater attention to my skin and body care routine. I made the vow to begin using ONLY (or as much as absolutely possible) natural body and skin care products. The previous summer, I attended the One Music Festival in Atlanta and found an amazing vendor that made and sold natural products. I purchased a black tea facial scrub that changed my skin so drastically, I knew I had to continue this routine. My face and skin was noticebly brighter, clearer and my skin tone more even. I mean, it LOOKED super healthy. As I continued deeper into my new routine during 2019, I didn't opt for just "all-natural", I went mostly for PLANT-BASED products- or products that are "clean", easily accessible and sometimes "edible". Here we are in 2021, and my skin is looking better than ever and my body and haircare are also all nearly plant-based and all natural.  

My guest today: Tiffany Bailey is a Master Herbalist and Licensed Aesthetician and creator of Ain't That Sumthin Skincare in Indianapolis, Indiana. Her mobile skincare and beauty services held steady even during COVID-19, providing self-care to many just needing to ground, relax and reconnect with themselves. Tiffany's work as a Master Herbalist shows up in her products, as she relies on native plants, herbs and roots found in your own backyard. She healed her own sensitive skin through the use of plant-based products and created her own line Ain't That Sumthin' Skincare. 

In this epidose we discuss:

Missy Ammerman, LCSW

Happy spring folks! It was a long, cold winter and it's time to enjoy the outdoors and sunshine. Winter is typically a time for many to go inward, re-evaluate and reflect. To our surprise, 2020 also had us adapting to many unexpected and new normals. I felt all this too, and the time I took was reflective and introspective. RELATIONSHIPS- current and past -seemed to keep coming up and I had to evaluate my part in them all. The good, the bad and yes...the ugly. And for some of my relationships- there was a need to apologize, whethere I felt I was wrong or not...I just felt the need. 

As we process these thoughts and emotions, it can be overwhelming, leaving us feeling anxious and unsure. So to help us understand things a little better, I called on Missy Ammerman-LCSW, to help me sort through some emotions related to my current and past relationships and how I was approaching and/or showing up for them. Missy's services at her practice in Lexington, Kentucky, include a hybrid of therapy and coaching to help men and women struggling with anxiety, depression and relationship issues identify roadblocks and address issues that are keeping them feeling stuck. Hallelujah! Bingo! YES! This is what we need ya'll (see how I love you??)!

Grab a note pad and pen and hear Missy's advice on: 

- Your MINDSET and how to move through roadblocks, anxiety and other uncertainties.

- Overcoming isolation anxieties and "analysis paralysis" . 

- How to use healthy and effective communication approaches in your relationships

- and Mastering the ART of the APOLOGY

I needed ALL of this and although you can't see me during this episode, you'll probably hear the tears and emotion in my voice. This self-work is hard! But I see and feel every one of you doing your best to be better to yourselves so you can pour into and be better to others. 

Take a deep breath and listen to this episode. And's ok.  

You are ok. We are OK. 

I love you.


P.S. Enjoy the bit of healthy humor at the beginning of the episode:) My editing skills/tools are NOT working together today!   ..... (Update FIXED IT!- I'ma one woman show folks lol:))

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!
