The Couragemakers Podcast | Encouragement, Inspiration & Rebel Rousing for Mission Driven Doers, Makers & Shakers |

Couragemakers is the weekly podcast for creative and multi-passionate women. Because building the life you want and putting stuff in the world takes a boatload of courage, but you don’t have to do it alone. Couragemakers is designed to encourage and rebel-rouse mission-driven doers, makers and world-shakers to spark a movement of women who are choosing themselves. Every Monday, Meg chats to unconventional couragemakers all over the world who share their stories, their advice and their dreams as we have honest conversations about everyday courage, living a wholehearted life and dream chasing. We’ve figured out what we don’t want in life, now we’re figuring out what we do want. And we talk about the things that make us feel on fire as well as the monsters that hide under our beds. Couragemakers is brought to you by Meg Kissack of That Hummingbird Life. Because everything changes when you believe you matter. Let’s shake things up together. Warning: This podcast contains courage, vulnerability and a desire to leave the world a brighter place than how we found it.

Hello and welcome to episode 21!

 

This week I had the absolutely privilege of sitting down with Spanish artist Maria Gil Ulldemolins who lives and works in Brussels. Maria's creative practice is a very process-oriented and heavily influenced by her experiences with meditation. Her work explores the themes of embracing mistakes, letting go, flow, compassion, control, variations and time.

 

In this episode we really dive into Maria's journey of studying the visual arts in Swaziland at a young age to owning her own studio, her belief that life is like google maps and it  finds a way of redirecting you to where you should be and how we all need to stop hating ourselves for hating ourselves when we're in a shitty place.

 

This is a great episode is you want to hear a really honest discussion about integrity, honesty and pity parties, if you want to hear a really frank conversation about the pressure to make six figures online and how it affects creatives, and if you want to feel really inspired like you have the world on your side.

 

I absolutely loved talking with Maria, she is such a breath of fresh air and I can't tell you how much of a laugh we had, both on air and off air. I know you're going to love Maria and this episode!

 

Enjoy the show!
