Welcome to episode 16 of the Infuse Joy Podcast, I’m your host, Sarajane Case. Writer, speaker, coach and brand new podcaster. Today’s episode is a tad different. We are entering into the first episode 2 of the women of color series.

Today I am talking with Alrinthea Carter. I met Alrinthea at the Queen Photographers Conference. I was there speaking about workflows and Alrinthea was attending and just blew me away with her bright shining personality. 

Alrinthea is a rural photographer based in Greenville, SC. Her artistic focus is on the abandoned buildings of the southeastern United States. Her work aims to tell the stories of the souths factories and homes left behind. Silently consumed and reclaimed by the elements to brush aside the kudzu curtain to reveal the treasure troves of machinery, classic architecture and gorgeous color. Her work has been published in the south carolina review, emory's journal, pembroke magazine, and select galleries. When not shooting old buildings she is co-executive producer and founding member of alchemy comedy theater in Greenville, SC. 

In today's episode we discuss navigating depression, living the life of your dreams regardless of what stage of life you are in and whether or not it's ok to say you have a black card. 

I find Alrinthea to be so easy talk to, down to earth and absolutely vibrant and I'm sure you will too!

Episode Nine: The Truth Beneath the Truth with Kitty Cavalier

In this episode of The Infuse Joy Podcast I speak with Kitty Cavalier of Sacred Seduction. Kitty Cavalier is an author, speaker and coach who teaches sensuality as a path to mindfulness.  Her classes and retreats teach others how to use their senses as a way to deeply connect with Spirit, and bring more pleasure, power and purpose to their lives.  She is the author of Sacred Seduction, and believes that seduction is actually spiritual practice, a way of letting yourself be led by something greater, and making life itself the ultimate seduction.

Her passions include leading sensuality retreats around the world, putting on red lipstick to do the laundry, mountain hikes that end with a skinny dip, honest conversation, and a relentless pursuit for the perfect velvet fainting couch.

We talk about the truth beneath the truth, how she went from wanting to be a Catholic priest to teaching sensuality as a path to the divine, we talk about what true sensuality is and how you can bring a little more truth into your everyday life. 

Kitty has also generously offered a special anointing ritual just for the listeners of this episode! Download yours through the link below!
