Sometimes we realize at a very young age that there’s something different about us. The difference doesn’t have to lead to insecurity or self-isolation. It could actually lead to something quite amazing.

Welcome to The Darin Olien Show. On this podcast, you’ll hear me, Darin Olien, “the superfood hunter,” have inspiring and enlightening conversations with extraordinary people from all walks of life. Although our ideas and approaches to life may differ, our ultimate goal is the same- to save the planet one conversation at a time.

If you’re interested in expanding your view of the world by learning new perspectives on health, nutrition and healing the planet, and want to learn more about society’s Fatal Conveniences™- the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to even though they may be doing harm- then this is the podcast for you.

This episode features my friend of 25+ years, Lauren Monroe. You’ve probably heard of Lauren. She’s a singer/songwriter, medium, healer and spiritual teacher, and she happens to be married to the amazing Rick Allen, the drummer for Def Leppard.

I knew there was something special about Lauren when I first met her. You know that strange pull you sometimes feel towards a stranger? Like there’s something spiritual and almost cosmic about your encounter? That’s what I felt when I met Lauren, and she’s proven to be one of the most unique people I’ve ever known.

Lauren has felt a connection to what she calls Divine Energy since she was a little girl growing up in Queens. Her paranormal experiences and unusual gifts set her on a path of discovery, one that she is still following today. She’s traveled the world learning from spiritual teachers and gurus, and channels everything she learns into her work and her music. Lauren co-founded, along with her husband, the Raven Drum Foundation and the Project Resiliency’s Warrior Resiliency Program which serves, educates and empowers veterans and people in crisis.

Lauren and I had a deep conversation about her journey to discover more about her inner gifts and everything that’s come with that. We touch on how she discovered her talent for healing with massage therapy and bodywork and her passion for energy work. She gushes about her passion for music and how excited she is for the release of her new EP and music video on July 10th. You don’t want to miss this conversation with a truly special soul.
