Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hi I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

How to Practice Detoxification of Your Mind, Body, and Spirit with Queen Afua 

The pandemic brought an uncomfortable truth to the surface: not all of us have the healthiest of lifestyles, even if we think we’re in tip-top shape. For too long, we have been feeding our bodies with junk, staying glued to our phones all day, and raising our children the same way. The time for detoxification and a reset is long overdue.

In this episode, Queen Afua urges women to take greater control of their health. As healers of the home, women spread wellness to their families and communities. Instead of relying heavily on drugs or surgery, she explains how we can use food, nature, and yoga as medicine. When we wean ourselves off unhealthy options and cleanse from within, our medical issues will naturally resolve themselves.

If you want to learn how to practice detoxification of your mind, body, and spirit, tune in to the full episode now.

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:

  1. Find out how to heal yourself and your family using holistic methods.
  2. Learn how to clear out tension, anxiety, and toxicity.
  3. Discover how Queen feels radically loved

Womb Yoga

  • The answers you've been searching for already exist within you. All you have to do is ask, stay still, and listen.
  • Once you start listening, you are bound to find love and guidance in every step of your journey.
  • When you listen to your heart every day, love and peace will grow at every turn. Goodness will spread.
