Soul Crush Ep. 27 Shakti + Healing through the Performative Arts with Faith Shakti Heyliger

Join along with Soul Crush this week in sitting down with poetess and artist, Faith Shakti Heyliger.
Faith is a Harlem-born poetess that was able to take her childhood of growing up in an ashram-community and navigate how the world treated her when this lifestyle wasn’t accepted.
In being given the name of the goddess Shakti, Faith has taken her life to explore and live the duality of what it means to be divine and human; and Faith shares this through her performative arts and poems that she curates. 
Adriana and Faith discuss the power of performing, how chanting and meditation plays a role in our ability to express ourselves more freely, and ways to support one another as artists and sensitive souls who FEEL IT ALL.
Things that are brought up in this conversation:
  • Duality of being Human & Divine.
  • Who is Shakti?
  • “Fear is fuel”; learning how to harness fear’s power to discover ourselves fully.
  • How the creative process can be such medicine in today’s world.
  • Ways that performative arts can give space for us to explore the shadow sides of us that we may normally be scared to face.
  • Physical embodiment when it comes to writing, art, and other forms of the creative process.

Soul Crush Ep.26 The Good Fight on the Full Moon with David Harshada Wagner

Join us this week with spiritual teacher, author & artist David Harshada Wagner
In this episode, David and Adriana Rizzolo celebrate and relate this Full Moon in Aries season to today's overwhelmed society, the f**kery of leadership seen today, and how this all can actually relate and be addressed in learning and delving deeper into the Bhagavad Gita.
Things that are brought up in this conversation:
  • Why the Bhagavad Gita is the most "seminal texts" of the Indian-Hindu traditions and how it relates and shines light on today's climate. 


  • Leadership & F**kery.  How these times of watching our leaderships fail is causing an overwhelming feeling of disempowerment as citizens are unsure of what they can do during these times. 


  • "What is our Good Fight to be Fighting Right now?" Taking the idea of "fighting a good fight" internally: of finding your individual purpose and then confronting your inner enemies.
  • Dharma and Swadharma: the importance of knowing your purpose right now.  Knowing that if we don't decide, others out there are more than willing to try and find that for you.


  • Warrior Consciousness.  A willingness to not be guided by fear.  Learning to let go of the hate and anger surrounded in fear and using these instead to guide you to address your inner enemies.
