Binge. Diet. Recover.

Grapple Podcast with Joyce Fegan | Dec 2018

Body. Food. Fat. Obsession.

A little girl at age 6, has her tummy poked by a seamstress who said: "That's what you get for being greedy."

Amanda talks about a demented life long pursuit of weight loss, how she thought dieting was her "duty" as a woman and how she’s growing to love the ultimate truth teller that is, her body.


How the pieces fit together.

Amanda talks about her beginnings as a make up artist, why she is a ‘Pilgrim Soul’ and how her background in creativity, hospitality and psychotherapy, form and inform the pillars of her practice as a facilitator of the creative process.

The Unruffled Podcast | April 2018

The Unruffled Podcast is a weekly show hosted by Sondra Primeaux and Tammi Salas that explores all topics relating to creativity in recovery. 

Today, Tammi and Sondra are excited to share a conversation with their friend, Amanda Grace.

Amanda is an Irish artist and teacher, a ‘Pilgrim Soul’ who bares her soul through her unique style of RAW visual art journaling.

They talk about what it’s like to uncover the layers to heal the original wound and how that uncovering led Amanda to question her relationship with alcohol, how she’s attending the other layers and how she translates that through her art.

This conversation is deep and revealing and speaks to the dichotomous humanity in all of us.
