Episode 30: Seeing Deeply: A Conversation with Robyn Ivy

So much of the work we do on the show is about embracing the hard work of transformation. One of the hardest things we do is ask you to sit in an uncomfortable place. We run and hide from discomfort, but that is the best place to be for some true self-discovery. What makes us uncomfortable faster than anything else? Getting in front of a camera. How can a photograph change your life? It might surprise you.

This week, we sat down with Robyn Ivy, Life Coach, Photographer, and Advocate. Robyn has taken her dual passions for photography and people to create an approach to self-exploration. She wants to teach us to use photography as a means of meditation and intentionality. Just like a good portrait captures the essence of who you are, the pictures you capture can also say a lot about you. Not only that, but a photo could possibly change the world. 

    Robyn is doing all that and more, and we are excited to share it with you!
