Mykel’s Story of Inspired Evolution


“There was always a lot of depth. There was always a lot of this spiritual element to my life and my work.” - Mykel Dixon


In his early 20s, Mykel was lead by a dream of becoming a rockstar. Late night practice sessions, daily busking just to get by, hoping one day someone would recognize his talent and give him the opportunity he thought he deserved. As his 30s came by, he was faced with a difficult situation of not having any savings and no equity to his name. He sold his vintage keyboard collection and embarked on what turned out to be a spiritual journey which started in India. Later, he explored Nepal and his journey culminated with him accidentally buying a beach bar in Cambodia 10 meters from the water!


He spent his time meditating, practicing yoga and writing a lot of music. But he still felt like he wasn’t done with his old life and that he had a lot to offer to the place he came from.


“I came back with, literally, just a clear intent and no clarity whatsoever of the how.” - Mykel Dixon


Working gigs and cash-in-hand jobs where a way to get by, reminding him closely of the things he had previously purposefully left behind. He quickly got an opportunity in the form of managing the culture of a startup hub coworking space. Being surrounded by ambitious entrepreneurs sparked an idea. In his mind, a vision was forming, and his pure intent slowly gained shape and transformed into something that will make him the person that he is today. His speaking engagements came very organically and by working closely with a mentor he perfected his craft of inspiring business folk to incorporate, utilize and harness the power of creativity.


“Through a lot of risk, a lot of vulnerability, and a lot of humiliation, somehow I arrived to where I am now.” - Mykel Dixon


A Spark of Curiosity


Mykel credits curiosity as fuel for creativity. Whether you’re producing form an artistic or entrepreneurial standpoint, immersing yourself with your work and interests will allow you to create on an entirely different level. It also comes with a great dose of humility, as this partnership you’re making with your interest transcends you and your basic desires and needs, and provides a context for making greatness. Greatness in the form of finding novel ways of adding value. He shares with us his insights on how to achieve and reveal this curiosity within ourselves.


“Just sit... and look at something... and get bored... and then notice that you’re getting bored.” - Mykel Dixon


Becoming aware of the fact that we’re disengaging from our surroundings is the first step to becoming more curious, as it allows us to do something about it. Behind boredom lies great power and potential, because the other side of the coin is finding something that moves the very core of your being.


The Relationship Between Art and Science


“If what is being experienced is expressed through a lens of emotion and intuition we call that art. If that same thing is being experienced and expressed through a lens of logic and reason we call it science.” - Mykel Dixon


Mykel's professional journey is a story of unity between the artistic and the scientific. He postulates that science and art are two sides of the same coin and that we’re always balancing on that unbreakable bond between the two, leaning towards different sides in different times from both personal standpoint and the context of humanity.


“The key piece is that it’s not versus, it’s not or, it’s not but - it’s and. Form and function are both parts of the same, and they couldn’t exist without each other.” - Mykel Dixon


Progress, in the technological sense, has indeed come from science. And in fact, technological progress is probably the perfect example that showcases the indisputable connection between science and art. By adapting ourselves to the digital world which is being dominated by gadgets, machines and AI, our culture will indeed draw from these advances as inspiration for creative content. The obvious benefits of advancement in terms of science often masks the need for something different. There needs to be a balance and the gorgeous thing about it is that both science and art can be consumed and produced together. The general feeling is that we’ve neglected our artistic selves in pursuit of wealth and economic growth. It’s about time we thought about personal growth as well.


“There is no greater imperative for us than to recover creatively.” - Mykel Dixon

Trust What Brings You Joy with Sam Maher Trust What Brings You Joy with Sam Maher Sun, 02 Dec 2018 21:00:00 GMT 35:32 5c0429b6b92519613b9a6583 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/sam-maher full Our guest for this week is Sam Maher, an instrumentalist and drummer better known for his unique playing style on the handpan.


Sam is a very experienced drummer, having worked with bands and artist such as Methyl Ethel, Katy Steele (Little Birdy), Rabbit Island, Grace Woodroofe, Nicholas Allbrook (POND, Tame Impala) and countless other groups based in Perth. But only 6 months after discovering the handpan, Sam decided to travel to the Americas. Over the course of 15 months, he has explored regions from Mexico City all the way south to the Patagonian region of Argentina, surviving mostly from the money he made busking on the streets. Sam has now performed his boundless music in over 22 countries and counting.


In 2015, he unexpectedly reached new levels of fame when he was approached to make a video by the YouTube channel BUSKRS. They recorded and produced a video of Sam improvising a session on his handpan in New York and the video went viral quickly after being uploaded. To this day it has racked up over 2.8 million views with overwhelmingly positive reviews, and you can check it out here!


Sam has also spoken at a TEDMED conference about the transcendent power of music. Along with a touching performance, he discussed his personal experience with the handpan, how much has the music changed and affected him, and he also explored the communicative nature of music.

Sam’s Story of Inspired Evolution


Prior to being propelled by a spontaneous YouTube video going viral, Sam’s journey has been one accompanied by struggles, from both a personal and a professional standpoint.


“I was really burning the candle at both ends because I was playing in about five bands, I was working full time and I was just really burnt out.” - Sam Maher


With a full-time job on one end and an exhausting nightlife of endless gigs on the other, Sam found himself at a position of feeling emotionally drained. Around that same time, he discovered the handpan, and straight away he felt a connection with the instrument. In his own words, playing the handpan has opened up new worlds for him and for his audience as well.


“I sat down on the side of the street and just started playing, and all of a sudden people would sort of gather around, and I had an older Aboriginal woman sitting down next to me weeping. It just opened up so many worlds for me, in that instant.” - Sam Maher


He realized that he was ready and that he needed to experience different cultures, learn through traveling and better understand himself. He sold everything and embarked on a journey over the Americas, with a plan to make a living through busking. Purposefully seeking to get in contact with the locals in order to connect with the way they’re living their everyday lives has led him on a path of personal growth.


“To consider myself successful, I feel like I constantly need to be exposed to new worlds and new cultures.” - Sam Maher


The Benefits of Pushing Yourself Out of Your Comfort Zone


Leaving his home for 15 months was not an easy decision. Sam was aware that he would miss certain important moments in the lives of his friends and family. But he knew that in order to truly achieve relevant progress and development he needed to take a big step outside of his comfort zone.


“It’s good to be uncomfortable. It’s a good trait for a human to be ok being uncomfortable at times.” - Sam Maher


Being able to sustain yourself in the moments of discomfort is a useful skill in life, and Sam wittingly makes note of this. It is good to have a playful relationship with being uncomfortable and there is a very good reason when we should push ourselves beyond the comfort zone even in moments when life seems easy. Because at times we’re going to run into adversities that are beyond our control. It is at those times precisely when our lifelong training of dealing with discomfort comes in handy.


Searching for a New Sound


“I want to be known as a great handpan musician, but would rather be known for a handpan musician that pushed the boundaries, rather than just sat on the street busking.” - Sam Maher


In terms of finding his sound, Sam is seeking to explore different genres and change the way people make music with the handpan. He has experimented with adding electronic music in an attempt to creatively challenge himself. Reestablishing the rules of how an instrument is played may not an easy task, but nevertheless, he is determined to continue on this path as the challenge makes it all the more rewarding.


“I’m always looking for the push or pull, or the question and the answer.” - Sam Maher


Finding a Purpose in Things That Bring Us Joy


“There’s been no more important time to find something for yourself that works.” - Sam Maher


Sam recognizes the importance of living a life true to your purpose and depicts it as one of the foundations to a good mental health. His journey has been difficult at times, but the fact that he knew what he needed from life and the way he unconditionally gave himself to the things that brought him joy is a true inspiration. We need to be in line with our values. Our actions have to be accompanied by a sense of purpose and joy in order to make sense. Otherwise, we’re just playing games with ourselves. That is why Sam invites us to:


“Trust those things that make you feel really, really good when you do them.” - Sam Maher

Touching Souls with Kabeção Touching Souls with Kabeção Sun, 25 Nov 2018 21:00:32 GMT 41:52 5bfaa1385cf44b555c0496d8 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/kabecao full Our guest for this week is Carlos Rodrigues aka Kabeção, a Portuguese multi-instrumentalist, composer, street busker and sound healer who creates his own unique approach to music and sound.



Originally studying to become a surgeon, Carlos discovered another, more fulfilling way of bringing joy and happiness to people. As he got more and more involved with music, he began to discover, explore and experiment with many different musical instruments. From a young age, he was familiar with percussion and rhythm, and then as the years went by he started to add other types of instruments, from strings to woodwinds, and his focus comes from the simple exploration of sound.


Under the pseudonym Kabeção, the origin and the meaning of which he explains in our podcast, he embarked on a journey of a professional musician. He is self-taught and has combined influences from different parts of the world, Africa, India, Brazil, Turkey, Spain, France, Australia. He has developed unique playing techniques on each of his instruments, including drums, darbuka, udu, tabla, djembe, frame drum, cajon, berimbau, bansuri, sansula, Tibetan bowls, gongs, didgeridoo, guitar, and handpan.


In 2015, he was a finalist on Portugal’s “Got Talent” and you can see one of his breathtaking live performances here!


He has produced several albums throughout his career. His latest one titled “Touching Souls” was released in September 2017 after being completely crowd-funded by music lovers and players from all around the world. About the album, Carlos has stated that it exceeded expectations and goals during its conception and the album holds true to its name.


Connect with Kabeção:



Kabeção’s Story of Inspired Evolution


At a very early age, Carlos realized a deep desire to help others. He decided to study medicine, as he found that becoming a surgeon would be a very effective way of satisfying that desire and save lives in the process. While struggling with a few exams which proved to be challenging, he discovered a much more meaningful, engaging and fulfilling relationship with music. He decided to quit school and started teaching himself to play. As years went by and as he started sharing his music with the world, he came to the conclusion that there was an alternative way of bringing people joy.


“I started playing on the streets. Two years, every day, playing on the streets and exploring the sounds, exploring my emotions with the sounds analyzing how this reflects on people, how people receive this... And somehow I started to understand that music is such a powerful tool to heal people. To connect, to open hearts.” - Kabeção


As he further explored this emotional aspect of music and playing music, he focused more and more on this healing aspect of it, all the while trying to hit the right vibrations with his creations which will resonate with the listeners.


Emotional Aspect of Music


One of the main and recurring themes of our conversation is emotions and the different ways that they are included in the process of creating, producing and receiving music. Discovering the handpan was of tremendous significance for Kabeção. Not only did it evoke interest, invite him to experiment and ultimately find his sound, but he saw a great opportunity to reflect, grow and connect with the self.


“I felt really curious and since I’ve started playing I immediately felt connected with my soul… That was the first step for me to understand who I am. Who I am with other people, who I am with myself.” - Kabeção


Connecting with the idea of healing through music, Kabeção explores different ways in which this can be achieved and which key factors play a role. The attitude and the style of the person playing will influence the message and color the sounds being played, shaping the message further and enrich the melodies with emotion. He recalls a moment during one of his classes when he was brought to tears by a playing session from a girl that was still having difficulties with developing certain techniques. Her emotional connectedness to the music was very powerful and it overshadowed the objective lack of experience.


“Sound is vibration and depending on who is making the things vibrate and how you’re vibrating, that reflects on the sound.” - Kabeção


There are many different ways to evoke change and healing in a person with music. The intent behind music can be love, but it can also be an array of different emotions. Kabeção reflects on the ways tense and distorted sounds can cause people to have parts of them deconstruct, but more importantly to invite them to come together properly the second time around.


The listener also plays a key role in terms of effectiveness of music as a transformational and healing tool. There needs to be a certain amount of receptivity present in the mind of the listener. If we are open and in the mood to receive the message being told through the music there is a bigger chance we can gain more from the whole experience.


Breathing and the Creative Process


“Breathing brings us to ourselves… Thinking about breathing cleans the mind and brings us back to us, it brings us back to the soul.” - Kabeção


Creativity is a complex process and our ability to express it depends on a certain mindset. Kabeção points out breathing as a useful tool for getting yourself into a creative state. Different instruments demand different levels of physical activity but mastering any of them requires practice and discipline. By breathing and focusing on the breath, we can become more mindful and connect with ourselves. According to Kabeção, that connection with the self is very useful when it comes to creating and composing music.


“The more you breathe the more you bring yourself to you again, more creative you are… and more rooted you are to just be you… to just have fun.” - Kabeção


The Power of Listening


“I really believe that listening is one of the most powerful tools to heal this planet today.” - Kabeção


Being an experienced musician, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Kabeção emphasizes the importance of listening. Giving the circumstances of today’s fast-paced life, we tend to overlook the basic things. The way we communicate nowadays has become awkward and to some extent automatized, devoid of emotion, empathy and caring for the interlocutor. It seems as though we’re consistently oversaturating ourselves with information, but we are paying the price by not being able to focus, listen for a moment, open up and connect with others. Kabeção sees the great potential of healing through better conversation, and the foundation for those conversations is better listening.


“Challenge yourself to listen, even more… Sometimes you don’t have to say anything. You just need to listen.” - Kabeção

Kabeção reflects on the ways tense and distorted sounds can cause people to have parts of them deconstruct, but more importantly to invite them to come together properly the second time around.


The listener also plays a key role in terms of effectiveness of music as a transformational and healing tool. There needs to be a certain amount of receptivity present in the mind of the listener. If we are open and in the mood to receive the message being told through the music there is a bigger chance we can gain more from the whole experience.


Breathing and the Creative Process


“Breathing brings us to ourselves… Thinking about breathing cleans the mind and brings us back to us, it brings us back to the soul.” - Kabeção


Creativity is a complex process and our ability to express it depends on a certain mindset. Kabeção points out breathing as a useful tool for getting yourself into a creative state. Different instruments demand different levels of physical activity but mastering any of them requires practice and discipline. By breathing and focusing on the breath, we can become more mindful and connect with ourselves. According to Kabeção, that connection with the self is very useful when it comes to creating and composing music.


“The more you breathe the more you bring yourself to you again, more creative you are… and more rooted you are to just be you… to just have fun.” - Kabeção


The Power of Listening


“I really believe that listening is one of the most powerful tools to heal this planet today.” - Kabeção


Being an experienced musician, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Kabeção emphasizes the importance of listening. Giving the circumstances of today’s fast-paced life, we tend to overlook the basic things. The way we communicate nowadays has become awkward and to some extent automatized, devoid of emotion, empathy and caring for the interlocutor. It seems as though we’re consistently oversaturating ourselves with information, but we are paying the price by not being able to focus, listen for a moment, open up and connect with others. Kabeção sees the great potential of healing through better conversation, and the foundation for those conversations is better listening.


“Challenge yourself to listen, even more… Sometimes you don’t have to say anything. You just need to listen.” - Kabeção

Live Your Truth with Colleen Gallagher Live Your Truth with Colleen Gallagher Sun, 18 Nov 2018 21:00:08 GMT 40:27 5bf19c7cf49d7d8473c7fae2 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/colleen-gallagher full This week, we’re joined by Colleen Gallagher, a coach, consultant, author, and an evolutionary transformation specialist.


Colleen is a childhood cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and told that she’d have difficulties bearing children and that she’d have to be on medication for the rest of her life. Aside from the pain and adversity coming from dealing with a horrible disease, Colleen also had to deal with peer rejection and being made fun of by her classmates. After several surgeries, she’s managed to pull through, but these experiences have stayed with her and played an important part in her becoming the person she is today.


Her love for travel has pulled her through life, but even though she had worked for hugely successful companies and making really good money, like many of her coworkers, she still felt unhappy. She founded Colleen Gallagher International so she could empower leaders to become evolutionary leaders to flow with the evolution of humanity through lifestyle careers. All of her travels, studying and leadership retreats have allowed Colleen to gain a greater understanding of human potential, purpose, and how the online world is impacting human development.


Colleen has created many systems and programs that will help you empower yourself and achieve a connection to what lies in your heart. One of them is a 12-week program called Live the Impossible, which takes you out of the information-overloaded world we live in, and provides you with a crystal clear view on what it is you actually want.


Colleen has also condensed her experiences and findings into a book titled Live Your Truth. The book is based around a 5-step proven system that is meant to help you see that any dream can come true if you are living your truth, figure out how to become part of moving the world forward, find the courage to intoxicate the world with your truth and start living a life with no regrets.


In our conversation, we canvas Colleen’s story of Inspired Evolution, the importance of connectivity and making the impossible possible!


Connect with Colleen:


Colleen’s Story of Inspired Evolution


Growing up in Detroit, Michigan, Colleen was having what most people would call a pretty normal childhood. That is until one day, during a basketball session, she collapsed onto the court not being able to catch her breath. She was rushed to the ER and was subsequently diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Surgeries, medication and a difficult situation at school had Colleen switching from a normal childhood, into a world of having to fight a deadly disease and struggling with adversity on a daily basis. Her appearance changed as a result of her treatment and her peers were unable to show compassion at the time, some even acting in a very cruel manner.


“People were calling me ugly… I was dating an African-American at the time and people would say like “Oh, did he choke you out?”, and they would say really mean things about racism.” - Colleen Gallagher


While undergoing treatment for her cancer, she witnessed an argument between two parents of another girl that was with her at the hospital, which affected her world-views immensely.


“Her dad screamed at her mom, saying: “The only reason we’re in this position to not pay for her treatment, is because you are a stay-at-home mom”. And what imprinted in me at that time was two things… One, that you needed money to have love and two, that you needed money to not die.” - Colleen Gallagher


In years to come, Colleen developed a money-hungry, corporate attitude. She got a degree in Marketing at Michigan State University and throughout her studies, she gained valuable experience by taking paid internships. After graduation, she started working as a sales engineer for a 23 billion-dollar company.


Colleen loved traveling her entire life, and not being able to do so made her switch jobs, and she quickly got hired by a $400 million company and moved to New Zealand. She was able to travel and experience new things, got promotions, she was making good money, but she still wasn’t feeling happy. In January 2018, she decided to take a leap of fate, and since then she became an evolutionary transformational coach, she started her own consulting company, developed numerous programs and had her book published.


Making a Commitment to Yourself


“Find that thing where you’re more committed to it than you are committed to the fear, or the illusion of fear that exists.” - Colleen Gallagher


Colleen shares with us her stories of committing to herself, in terms of leaving behind a life of partying and recreational use of drugs and channeling her energy into the activities that really mattered and were meaningful to her. Doing yoga and meditation for 4 hours a day may not be everyone’s idea of fun and fulfillment, and Colleen points out that everyone’s commitment is going to be different. The trick is to find activities that you find most enjoyable and go all in because it is the best way to rekindle your motivation and love for life.


“It could be dancing for you, it could be music… it could be anything! Whatever that commitment is - go to that. Because that’s what will give you back the heart of your life.”  - Colleen Gallagher


Connecting with Your Greatest Truth


“If you create the success and you’ve haven’t evolved that connectivity that comes from within, and your connectivity of what matters to you in the world… you’re going to be addicted to the success pattern.” - Colleen Gallagher


Connecting with your truth means being involved with things that resonate with what truly matters to you in the world. Being successful without getting in line with your highest values will lead you to become addicted to the outright empty definition of success. The emptiness of that definition comes from the fact that it is not your own. It does not come from your heart and it is not correlating with the things most important to you. No one should be allowed to tell you what success looks like and feels for you.


“Everyone gets to have their own path. Everyone gets to have their own idea of success… Whatever success you desire, make it your success, connect to your dream of success.” - Colleen Gallagher


One of the key steps in connecting with your truth is trough redefining your environment. This includes mainly the little things that you do when you’re acting from the heart. Things you’re browsing online, things you enjoy within your own time. Looking for consistencies in your environment, in things that you surround yourself with on a daily basis will provide answers to the question of your truth. In those patterns, you will find those activities you are performing effortlessly and you will be able to make a connection within.


“Where do you give generously always, that it doesn’t feel like work, like, you’re giving just to give?” - Colleen Gallagher


Colleen passionately invites you to live the life you were always meant to live by looking within and connecting with the deepest aspects that were always a part of you, to begin with. She urges us to:


“Just go, be the most epic, conscious, badass human being that you are meant to be on this planet!” - Colleen Gallagher

For the last 7 years, Mason has been teaching about the benefits of medicinal mushrooms and Taoist tonic herbs. He founded his own brand of powdered extracts of tonic herbs and medicinal mushrooms called SuperFeast. Carefully sourced from wild regions of China and Inner Mongolia, SuperFeast products are comprised of purest, highest quality, all-natural ingredients. You can check out their blog to find educational articles about health and nutrition and explore awesome recipes of shakes, brownies, elixirs and so much more!


Mason also hosts two podcasts. The SuperFeast Podcast started back in September 2018, and it dives into and dissects topics such as tonic herbalism, brain optimization, and Jing energy. On his other podcast, The Mason Taylor Show, he interviewed thought leaders, visionaries and change-makers in many areas of life to share with you their latest Insights, distinctions and actionable advice relevant to the journey of health. There are over 40 episodes of inspiring educational content on diverse subjects with interesting guests for you to check out.


Having spent over 15,000 hours studying the field of health and transformation, he employs education, vulnerable conversation, and deep connection to help people discover who they really are and what they are here to do in the world. His clients stop living in an illusion about the environment and the world they live in. They discover not only how to resolve health problems, but they get the clarity and confidence to explore their aspirations.


Connect with Mason:



Mason’s Story of Inspired Evolution


Mason shares with us his journey from getting interested with and studying herbalism in his last year of studies, to having his own brand of medicinal mushrooms and tonic herb products. Back in 2011, he started SuperFeast with the intent of spreading the word about the importance and benefits of adding plants and medicinal mushrooms to your regular diet. Back then, these ideas were much less popular, hitting the highest point only in the last couple of years. The cultivation of these sacred plants coming from eastern cultures ideally follows the philosophy of Di Tao. While it’s difficult to translate, it basically means “sourced from its spiritual homeland”, with practical benefits of Di Tao being related to the effectiveness of the herbs and also improved appearance and taste. It is a subject people are not particularly aware of and it concerns proper ways of sourcing and harvesting plants and mushrooms.


“It’s important to ensure that it doesn't hit fad vibes because overarching is a philosophy of integrating therapeutics, botanicals that have been harvested in particular ways, connected to the elements, connected to nature.” - Mason Taylor


He further explores potential issues with the subject of medicinal mushrooms becoming a fad and the unfortunate side-effects of opportunists getting involved with the business.


“It’s the opportunists that come in late… and they don’t understand this mature perception of what it takes to leave the earth and the environment better than you found it and make sure you’re actually circulating where you’re getting your crop from.” - Mason Taylor


The Benefits of Medicinal Mushrooms and Herbs


Mason goes into details of just how and why are these medicinal mushrooms and tonic herbs a great way to boost your overall health. Using a very holistic approach, he is very down to earth and rational regarding the benefits, fully being aware that health is not about adding one or two things to your diet and experiencing magic-like improvements. Having said that, he is also extremely focused on the empirical evidence coming from western influences, all the while respecting the ancient traditions and anecdotal evidence that has been in the eastern culture for centuries. The knowledge acquired in both anecdotal and experimental form unequivocally points to the effectiveness of medicinal mushrooms.


“These things aren’t cures, they’re not silver bullets but they are herbs that definitely help the immune system, especially medicinal mushrooms, to unite itself and get more sophisticated and that’s been proven empirically.” - Mason Taylor


Looking at the whole picture, medicinal mushrooms can help you develop sovereign immunity and Mason sees one of the reasons in the connectedness we have with them in terms of evolution, to the point where we’re in some sort of symbiotic relationship with them.


“We’ve co-evolved with mushrooms, 100%, and so they are a part of us” - Mason Taylor


Attaining Sovereignty and the Slipperiness of Wisdom


Diving into the dynamics and the multidimensional nature of intention, we discuss Mason's views on attaining sovereignty and the essence of wisdom. He emphasizes “slipperiness”, a characteristic that highlights the ability of a system to adapt, integrate and incorporate different bits of knowledge into something that will become relevant and effective.


“Wisdom is gooey, wisdom is non-judgemental, wisdom is minding your own bloody business and then having enough perception of the environment around you when it’s appropriate to share with potency and, ideally, a smile on your face.” - Mason Taylor


Mason also invites us to be non-judgemental which he perceives an integral part of wisdom. A common mistake people make is that an over-development in one area of knowledge is somehow an excuse for exerting judgment towards other fields, one they’re not trying to understand. Less judgment would definitely benefit us all as a society and Mason inspires us to act be more open and cooperative with the words:


“Don’t be a disruption when it’s not a useful thing that the society can use to evolve itself.” - Mason Taylor

Embodied Enlightenment with Cari Merriam Embodied Enlightenment with Cari Merriam Sun, 04 Nov 2018 21:00:44 GMT 36:32 5bdca7f6df8bc6fd1e0d47ad no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/cari-merriam full Embodied Enlightenment with Cari Merriam


Our guest for this week is Cari Merriam, an expert health and lifestyle fitness guide with a mission to increase global happiness.


Cari has been fighting adversity her entire life. Throughout her childhood, she was heavily medicated due to depression and anxiety issues. Her struggles with mental illness led her to a life of drug addiction and self-abuse.


She found a way out in Core Power Yoga. After an emotional breakthrough experience, Cari resumed to challenge herself physically and spiritually and joined the 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training. Since then, Cari has gone on to teach over 2000 classes, lead BootCamps, Cleanses, and support Teacher Training nationally for Core Power Yoga. She has certifications in vinyasa, yin, sculpt, meditation, and breathwork (pranayama yoga).


Cari founded a lifestyle brand called Strength and Surrender meant to empower, motivate and teach you how to rebuild the love you have for yourself and strengthen your mind, body, and soul. In 2016, she moved to Bali and ever since, she’s been working on awakening others into their highest self-potential. You can check out her channel on YouTube and see what her intelligent workouts based on yogic philosophy and practice are all about.


She has her own podcast called Embodied Enlightenment where each week she discusses a wide array of diverse and interesting topics with her guests. Her intention is to shift your energetic experience of your everyday life, push you to think differently about your internal and external world, and to activate the greatness within you through conscious obtainable action.   


Cari is on a mission to awaken self-love in others and she is focusing on teaching others how to live a life of freedom, passion, and purpose.

Cari’s Story of Inspired Evolution


Having been riddled with anxiety and depression in her youth and with no alternative to heavy medication, Cari’s origin story is one of struggle and adversity. In later years she suffered from drug addiction to the point in which her life was seriously endangered.


“I was almost on my deathbed, and in New York City because I was doing so much cocaine.” - Cari Merriam


One night, she decided to leave the bubble that drove her to the same paths of self-destruction and the universe responded with an unexpected encounter. She met a friend, her soul-sister, which opened her eyes to a new way. She planted an idea in Cari’s brain about Core Power Yoga, believing it could be an answer to the question she had been looking for.


“I remember I went into Core Power and just balled my eyes out the first class. I completely lost it. It was the first time I felt like someone held space and saw me.” - Cari Merriam


The transformation she felt every time she practiced Yoga kept her coming back to the point where she decided to sign up for a program and become a teacher herself. In a peculiar situation where she was working as a bartender at a strip club by day, and going to teacher training at night, Cari looked for and found the strength within.


“Every time things happen, I had a choice to be a victim or to be a victor for myself. And I always chose self.” - Cari Merriam


Her next encounter with her soul-sister led her to explore the power of breathwork, opening a whole new dimension of experience, proving the remarkableness of the universal alignment behind their connection. Using techniques she has learned in the last decade, Cari founded her own lifestyle brand and is looking to inspire and teach self-love in others and bring marriage and wholeness within themselves.


Marriage of the Self, Marriage of the Soul


“We are all walking around with fragmentations of ourself and how we are brought up is in societies is to not look at those aspects… and we carry them around like a wounded bag behind us.” - Cari Merriam


We need to overcome the distortions within ourselves which are brought on by society. These fragmentations are seeking unity and we need to attain energetic wholeness in order to truly realize our purpose in life. Cari points out the difference between the physical and the energetic self. We charge our energetic bodies through the process of breathing, and through breathwork, we can achieve marriage of the self.


“When you’re truly whole you can be in pure alignment with the river of life.” - Cari Merriam


Limiting Nature of a Conditional Society


“We all have trauma. All of us. Because we live in a conditional society.” - Cari Merriam


It’s easier for us as children to be aligned with the world around us as we’re not yet influenced by language. Trauma occurs when our natural development gets affected by the rules of society. From a young age, we’re being conditioned by society through our parents and the school system with the goal of controlling behavior. This is not in and of itself a bad thing but is what essentially leads to the conditioning of existence.


What’s to Come


“From the world’s standpoint, it’s time for co-creation. It’s time to uplift each other’s vibration, by not only uplifting our own but bridging relationships and merging cellularly so we can expand together.” - Cari Merriam


Cari is looking to share her stories, teach and get involved with co-creation, all the while exploring and witnessing the power of breathwork. Her message of the importance of achieving wholeness and marriage with the self is resonating deeply and the foundation of the whole story is beautifully summed up with the words:


“You are pure love.” - Cari Merriam

“I remember I went into Core Power and just balled my eyes out the first class. I completely lost it. It was the first time I felt like someone held space and saw me.” - Cari Merriam


The transformation she felt every time she practiced Yoga kept her coming back to the point where she decided to sign up for a program and become a teacher herself. In a peculiar situation where she was working as a bartender at a strip club by day, and going to teacher training at night, Cari looked for and found the strength within.


“Every time things happen, I had a choice to be a victim or to be a victor for myself. And I always chose self.” - Cari Merriam


Her next encounter with her soul-sister led her to explore the power of breathwork, opening a whole new dimension of experience, proving the remarkableness of the universal alignment behind their connection. Using techniques she has learned in the last decade, Cari founded her own lifestyle brand and is looking to inspire and teach self-love in others and bring marriage and wholeness within themselves.


Marriage of the Self, Marriage of the Soul


“We are all walking around with fragmentations of ourself and how we are brought up is in societies is to not look at those aspects… and we carry them around like a wounded bag behind us.” - Cari Merriam


We need to overcome the distortions within ourselves which are brought on by society. These fragmentations are seeking unity and we need to attain energetic wholeness in order to truly realize our purpose in life. Cari points out the difference between the physical and the energetic self. We charge our energetic bodies through the process of breathing, and through breathwork, we can achieve marriage of the self.


“When you’re truly whole you can be in pure alignment with the river of life.” - Cari Merriam


Limiting Nature of a Conditional Society


“We all have trauma. All of us. Because we live in a conditional society.” - Cari Merriam


It’s easier for us as children to be aligned with the world around us as we’re not yet influenced by language. Trauma occurs when our natural development gets affected by the rules of society. From a young age, we’re being conditioned by society through our parents and the school system with the goal of controlling behavior. This is not in and of itself a bad thing but is what essentially leads to the conditioning of existence.


What’s to Come


“From the world’s standpoint, it’s time for co-creation. It’s time to uplift each other’s vibration, by not only uplifting our own but bridging relationships and merging cellularly so we can expand together.” - Cari Merriam


Cari is looking to share her stories, teach and get involved with co-creation, all the while exploring and witnessing the power of breathwork. Her message of the importance of achieving wholeness and marriage with the self is resonating deeply and the foundation of the whole story is beautifully summed up with the words:


“You are pure love.” - Cari Merriam

Alex’s Story of Inspired Evolution


When he was only three years old, Alex suffered from an illness, which he luckily managed to successfully overcome. However, he reckons that this experience maybe affected him to become the joyful, energetic person he is today. His parents assured him that his perseverance played an important role in making a full recovery.


“My mom always said I fought the illness myself, rather than the medicine.” - Alex T. Steffen


His adolescence and young adulthood were enriched with a curiosity that led him to explore and travel to different parts of the world. These travels were not short excursions to new places, but more like journeys outside of his comfort zone, and Alex looked to spend time in new environments so that he could transform and advance.


“I made it a point to go to places that are so different that people often don’t dare to go.” - Alex T. Steffen


Alex explored places and sought to get in touch with people who had a completely different view of the world, either from being shut off or as a result of war and similar traumatic experiences. Places like Bosnia, Ruanda, Colombia… He points out the narrow viewpoints of the western world and that through these deep and meaningful interactions with people whose experiences are vastly different from our own, we can get a fuller, more accurate picture of the world that we see around us.


Joyfulness, Diligence, Optimism


Throughout our conversation, Alex remembers and honors his grandfather with having a great impact on his joyful attitude towards life. A war veteran, living major portions of his life in extreme adversity and challenging times, he always had a comforting message for Alex and his brothers, one that stuck with them and guided them through their difficult moments in life.


“He thought us that wealth and abundance come from diligence, but also that a well-lived life is built on joy and you can’t live without it.” - Alex T. Steffen


Alex discusses quite openly about the reasons behind his optimism and shows it is based on common sense. His stance on the whole question of the glass being half-full has a firm foundation in practicality. If all else fails, the optimistic mindset will act as a fertile setting, which will, in the end, give us an opportunity to build greater things in the future.


“Some people criticize optimists for being optimistic and they say “You have to be realistic.” which is supposedly the opposite of it. I say no. I’m creating my own reality. Even if its just the fundamental part of “If I expect something, my body will react differently, it will calm me down.” and just by that, I have more capacity to be creative, to be more productive, to be calm and connecting.” - Alex T. Steffen


Growth Masters - How to Make an Amazing Mastermind


Creating masterminds came naturally for Alex. He felt comfortable in social situations where he got the chance to exchange opinions and discuss values with people who had a different viewpoint. He realized that exactly these types of exchanges were not only a great opportunity for connecting with others, but for personal growth as well.


Alex noticed that three things were necessary in order to create a great mastermind. First and foremost, the environment in which the mastermind will be held. Our environment plays a very important role in learning because it inevitably affects our mindset by making us more comfortable, inspiring us or making us more open to new information and views different from our own. Alex uses a broad definition of the word environment and takes into account the states and the moods of the people included in the mastermind.


“We had beautiful spaces that we cooked in together. So we created an environment through action and also through setting, and we were already ready for what came because we created the space.” - Alex T. Steffen


The second essential ingredient for making a great mastermind is a state of vulnerability. Our educational systems are usually not taking this aspect of learning into account and are usually focusing on promoting competition. In a safe space, where everyone can share their thoughts, feelings and be at their most vulnerable, we see people being more open to receiving valuable input from others and take in constructive feedback.


“The state of vulnerability is something that in learning, is for me, one of the key points. And we don’t do this often.” - Alex T. Steffen


Once you’ve established a nurturing and comfortable environment, in which people can feel safe at their most vulnerable, it’s time to engage them in activities that will get them out of their comfort zone. By pushing themselves to complete adventurous feats, all the while getting inspiration and support needed from their peers, people can tap into a newfound energy which can later be used as fuel for achieving great things in their professional fields as well.


“It’s not really for the kick. We want to channel a certain energy and excitement, a realization, and channel it into the work that we do afterward… To use this energy and to channel it is the actual benefit.” - Alex T. Steffen


Alex has made an amazing career in pursuit of helping people reach new heights both personally and professionally. He inspires us with the words his grandfather, meant to motivate and empower with the energy that comes from an optimistic approach to life.


“Be joyfully diligent.” - Alex T. Steffen

SOMA Awakening: Wake up to Your Truth with Niraj Naik SOMA Awakening: Wake up to Your Truth with Niraj Naik Sun, 21 Oct 2018 21:00:11 GMT 47:25 5bcef63f773b2e117a7e88c2 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/niraj-naik full Our guest for this week is Niraj Naik (aka the Renegade Pharmacist), a qualified pharmacist, professional musician, holistic health expert, and entrepreneur.


Years of working as a community pharmacist have given Niraj an opportunity to witness first hand the many difficulties people endure when dealing with illness. One of the key observations he made was that many of his customers kept coming back week in and week out, getting their medication as prescribed, with little to no improvements and being overwhelmed with side-effects. This led him to explore alternative ways for reaching optimal health and resulted in him developing his own method and a lifestyle plan, designed to help his patients.


In 2010, Niraj was diagnosed with stress-related ulcerative colitis, which kept him housebound for 10 months. He was told by doctors that there was no cure for his illness and that he would need to take medication for the rest of his life to control it. The side-effects of his prescription drugs were becoming too much, leaving him often hopeless and even suicidal at times.


He decided to step away from conventional medicine and study people who have managed to heal themselves in alternative ways. Combining techniques and knowledge from different disciplines like yoga, NLP, self-hypnosis, all the while incorporating dietary recommendations from Paleo and SCD to his daily routine, Niraj finally managed to overcome his illness, without medication.


Niraj has also been exploring sound and music therapy in terms of reducing stress and promoting self-healing. Niraj has composed music for healing centers, spas, and therapists worldwide, and his work was included in the programs and videos of renowned experts such as Marisa Peer and Wim Hof.


His latest project called SOMA Awakening is a group breathwork multisensory meditation experience that can awaken dormant parts of your brain, improve circulation, promote healing, transmute sexual life force energy and help to manifest your intentions taking your meditation practice to the next level. Soma Breath is being taught at wellness centers in Niraj’s second home of the island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. He has launched a successful teacher training that is proving to be very popular, with his first students already creating and facilitating their own paid workshops, and even showcasing their new skills at festivals.


After overcoming a debilitating and house-confining illness cultivating the power of the mind, Niraj is aiming to teach and spread the knowledge he has acquired over the years and help people improve, transform and optimize their physical and mental health.

Niraj’s Story of Inspired Evolution


“I was just dead. I lost my soul.” - Niraj Naik


Dealing with a debilitating condition, along with suffering from side-effects of the prescribed medication has left Niraj in a state of emotional numbness and despair. The ulcerative colitis just pilled on to an already depressing situation of struggling to get his own ideas of how to improve people’s health across. At his lowest, in what can only be described as a moment of fate, Niraj met with a spiritual yoga teacher. Their encounter shifted his downward spiraling life story and gave him the much-needed energy and inspiration to find a way to help himself when no one else could.


Using essential techniques of pranayama, yoga, and Ayurveda, Niraj managed to regain his spiritual balance and ultimately heal himself, leaving medication and conventional medicine behind. He has managed to improve his health, but the whole experience left him more curious than ever. He decided to explore and try to answer the question of just how did he manage to help himself when all hope seemed lost.


“I was like, “I need to find out why does this work? What is it about it?” I wanted to go deep.” - Niraj Naik


Exploring the Mechanism and Refining His Art


Avoiding the dogmatic, Niraj dived deep into discovering the mechanics behind his healing process, and once he found answers he was looking for, he continued to explore and develop his own technique to help others achieve optimal health in a more efficient manner. The first step was involving himself with exploring and creating meditational music because he believed it plays a key role in restoring balance and harmony. His works are now validated by the likes of Marisa Peer, which uses his trypnaural melodies in her training videos.


Evoking the Brain Change Without Stress


“Every artist, I believe, must suffer a little bit in order to really make valuable art.” - Niraj Naik


Niraj has observed suffering to be the common thread as the thing that connects artists from different fields. He believes that the stress and adversity they’ve experienced in their life is the factor which allowed them to think outside of the box, expand their minds and evolve.



“Everything I do now is all about helping people to invoke that brain change without going through the stress, and the way you do that is by reaching these ecstatic states. Without substances, without narcotics, just using what we already have inside.” - Niraj Naik


Niraj wanted to see if he could develop a setting in which people could change the way they think and behave in a safe, controlled environment, without having to experience large amounts of stress and not having to use psychedelic drugs. He researched ancient wisdom of reaching ecstatic states by cultivating the power of our own bodies, which he incorporated into his own method. Using breathwork techniques, Niraj is now teaching others how to cultivate the sexual energy from their bodies and move it up to the brain, in order to create cognitive changes in the brain.


“There’s a reason why monks don’t have sex and they’re celibate. It’s because they’re harnessing the sexual energy and transmuting it for a higher purpose.” - Niraj Naik


FOFO - The Fear of Feeling Out


Niraj talks about getting a handle of our reptilian brain as “charming the snake”. He believes that the number one thing which gets us rattled up and influences the snake the most is FOFO or “the fear of feeling out”. Succumbing to the pressure of fitting in and conforming to the standards of today’s society makes us constantly do things we don’t want, just so we could please the expectations of others, hurting ourselves mentally and physically in the process.


“Have a think about how many things are you doing right now that serves your best interests, and how many things that you’re doing are based on what other people expect you to do.” - Niraj Naik


Using what he now calls SOMA (which also stands for ‘the Science of Magnetic Attraction) breathing techniques, accompanied by positive self-talk and optimistic messages, Niraj provides others with the tool to “charm the snake”, master the laws of attraction and to not be a victim of your own stress, but to control it. Niraj has made it his mission to help others realize that by serving the expectations of others, and hurting ourselves in the process, we are actually helping no one in the end. In order to take control of the reptilian fundamentals of our brains, we must cut through all the lies and the rationalizations we tell ourselves.


“Be honest with yourself. Always.” - Niraj Naik

Love Out Loud with Nicole Gibson Love Out Loud with Nicole Gibson Sun, 14 Oct 2018 21:00:17 GMT 55:47 5bc32a6552d1ac881059c252 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/nicole-gibson full In this week’s episode, we‘re joined by Nicole Gibson, a multi-award winning social entrepreneur, published author, but most of all, an unstoppable messenger of love and human potential.


When she was 18 years old, she started a not-for-profit company called The Rogue & Rouge Foundation dedicated to battling the mental health stigma through a community-based approach, reaching out to children and parents through schools and community groups. The inspiration for starting her own charitable organization came from her own struggles of dealing with anorexia nervosa throughout her teenage years. She was afraid to return to a society which was not able to understand her struggles, so she made a commitment to passionately rebel against Australia’s negative stereotypes.


Over the years, Nicole has received many different awards and honors for her contributions to society, the most prominent one being the Pride of Australia Inspiration Medal in 2014. She was also listed as one of Australia’s top 100 most influential women when she was only 21 years old!


Nicole has published her first book titled “Love Out Loud”. It is a personal account of her own journey finding her way back to love, and a guide for others that should help them do the same. Aside from that, Nicole also created a unique Love Out Loud online program which is designed to help you shift your mindset and learn to Love Louder with just 15 minutes a day.


Throughout her career, Nicole has spoken to and facilitated workshops and presentations for over 250 000 Australians. Using her own background of 10 years in theatre training, she developed a facilitation method in order to spiritually educate and raise awareness about mental illness.


Nicole invites us to transform ourselves, realize our potential and understand our responsibility to give back to the world.

Nicole’s Story of Inspired Evolution


“At a young age I had to ask myself quite heavy questions, “Am I prepared to devote the rest of my life”, or even more intense, “Am I prepared to die for, essentially, my Ego.”, which is what was driving my eating disorder.” - Nicole Gibson


In her teenage years, Nicole has struggled with an eating disorder known as anorexia nervosa. She openly describes intricate details and thought processes of dealing with mental illness and points out the “feeling of having to be a particular way to meet other people’s expectations” as the main culprit and driving force behind the disorder. Aside from experiencing great emotional pain, Nicole was suffering from immense physical pain as well.


“When you’re dealing with mental illness - it’s very self-oriented.” - Nicole Gibson


One of the key turning points for Nicole came from releasing herself from being the focal point of her overwhelming thoughts and self-analysis. Turning her attention outwards to the world, she “started listening”, and what she received from that listening is a realization that “life is about giving and service.” She understood that there is a greater side to her story, and set upon her path of transformation, even though the path itself was not yet well-defined.


“I think we always know how to make it happen, but we’re not always prepared to listen.” - Nicole Gibson



Honesty as an Essential Agency for Change


“It’s one thing to think positive and know that you can live the life of your dreams, it’s another thing to really face your shit and look at where you’re not being honest.” - Nicole Gibson


Nicole highlights honesty as one of the key conditions needed for transformation. Being able to be alone with yourself, taking in what comes up and learning how to deal with it is the fundamental step in the process of self-improvement. Once you are able to “sit with your s***”, you will establish spiritual tranquility, meaning you will no longer be a slave to your deep insecurities or negativity but will have more energy to think of practical ways how to and actually overcome them.


“Until you’re really honest about where you’re at, you can’t change, you can’t transform.” - Nicole Gibson


Or to put it in another way, as a line directly pulled from her book, “We can’t heal what we don’t reveal.” It is necessary to know what the problem is if you’re trying to eradicate or transcend it. She acknowledges meditation as one of the most useful settings for being honest with yourself and expresses piercing insight into why most people find meditation an unpleasant activity at first.


“The reason you hate meditation is because every time you try to meditate, the first thing that comes up is your guilt, your shame, and your insecurities, but that’s coming up so that you can be aware of that. And via that awareness, you can actually work through it.” - Nicole Gibson


Validation vs. Acknowledgement - Barrier vs. Blessing?


“I knew that if I was seeking validation I was never going to feel validated.” - Nicole Gibson


Nicole makes a very important distinction between two relevant driving forces in our lives. One being validation being a more superficial, potentially damaging and irrelevant for spiritual growth, and the other being acknowledgement, a deeper feeling of appreciation and acceptance which starts with one’s self.


“Acknowledgement begins with you. Unless I can look at the person in the mirror, and actually acknowledge myself and my journey, how could I ever feel that or experience that from another person?” - Nicole Gibson


Acknowledgement is about giving. It’s about being humble, serving and giving back. Aside from acknowledging yourself, you can also use it to bring out the change in others and also give them strength to their viewpoint.

The Difference Between Being Lonely and Being Alone


In her book “Love Out Loud”, Nicole has condensed her last 7 years of being an unstoppable messenger of love and human potential. She talks all about honesty, acknowledgement, love and the human connection.


“The first premise is that we’re all immensely connected. But we’re not always conscious of the fact that we’re connected.” - Nicole Gibson


Not being consciously aware and acting upon this idea of being connected with others will most definitely have you ending up in a place of feeling lonely. But being alone is not synonymous with being lonely. No one should choose to loneliness, but we should, from time to time, seek and savor aloneness because it is a prerequisite for personal growth. We need to be able to find the time and give ourselves space to search for wisdom within and explore things that are true to us.

In this week’s episode, we‘re joined by Nicole Gibson, a multi-award winning social entrepreneur, published author, but most of all, an unstoppable messenger of love and human potential.


When she was 18 years old, she started a not-for-profit company called The Rogue & Rouge Foundation dedicated to battling the mental health stigma through a community-based approach, reaching out to children and parents through schools and community groups. The inspiration for starting her own charitable organization came from her own struggles of dealing with anorexia nervosa throughout her teenage years. She was afraid to return to a society which was not able to understand her struggles, so she made a commitment to passionately rebel against Australia’s negative stereotypes.


Over the years, Nicole has received many different awards and honors for her contributions to society, the most prominent one being the Pride of Australia Inspiration Medal in 2014. She was also listed as one of Australia’s top 100 most influential women when she was only 21 years old!


Nicole has published her first book titled “Love Out Loud”. It is a personal account of her own journey finding her way back to love, and a guide for others that should help them do the same. Aside from that, Nicole also created a unique Love Out Loud online program which is designed to help you shift your mindset and learn to Love Louder with just 15 minutes a day.


Throughout her career, Nicole has spoken to and facilitated workshops and presentations for over 250 000 Australians. Using her own background of 10 years in theatre training, she developed a facilitation method in order to spiritually educate and raise awareness about mental illness.


Nicole invites us to transform ourselves, realize our potential and understand our responsibility to give back to the world.

Nicole’s Story of Inspired Evolution


“At a young age I had to ask myself quite heavy questions, “Am I prepared to devote the rest of my life”, or even more intense, “Am I prepared to die for, essentially, my Ego.”, which is what was driving my eating disorder.” - Nicole Gibson


In her teenage years, Nicole has struggled with an eating disorder known as anorexia nervosa. She openly describes intricate details and thought processes of dealing with mental illness and points out the “feeling of having to be a particular way to meet other people’s expectations” as the main culprit and driving force behind the disorder. Aside from experiencing great emotional pain, Nicole was suffering from immense physical pain as well.


“When you’re dealing with mental illness - it’s very self-oriented.” - Nicole Gibson


One of the key turning points for Nicole came from releasing herself from being the focal point of her overwhelming thoughts and self-analysis. Turning her attention outwards to the world, she “started listening”, and what she received from that listening is a realization that “life is about giving and service.” She understood that there is a greater side to her story, and set upon her path of transformation, even though the path itself was not yet well-defined.


“I think we always know how to make it happen, but we’re not always prepared to listen.” - Nicole Gibson



Honesty as an Essential Agency for Change


“It’s one thing to think positive and know that you can live the life of your dreams, it’s another thing to really face your shit and look at where you’re not being honest.” - Nicole Gibson


Nicole highlights honesty as one of the key conditions needed for transformation. Being able to be alone with yourself, taking in what comes up and learning how to deal with it is the fundamental step in the process of self-improvement. Once you are able to “sit with your s***”, you will establish spiritual tranquility, meaning you will no longer be a slave to your deep insecurities or negativity but will have more energy to think of practical ways how to and actually overcome them.


“Until you’re really honest about where you’re at, you can’t change, you can’t transform.” - Nicole Gibson


Or to put it in another way, as a line directly pulled from her book, “We can’t heal what we don’t reveal.” It is necessary to know what the problem is if you’re trying to eradicate or transcend it. She acknowledges meditation as one of the most useful settings for being honest with yourself and expresses piercing insight into why most people find meditation an unpleasant activity at first.


“The reason you hate meditation is because every time you try to meditate, the first thing that comes up is your guilt, your shame, and your insecurities, but that’s coming up so that you can be aware of that. And via that awareness, you can actually work through it.” - Nicole Gibson


Validation vs. Acknowledgement - Barrier vs. Blessing?


“I knew that if I was seeking validation I was never going to feel validated.” - Nicole Gibson


Nicole makes a very important distinction between two relevant driving forces in our lives. One being validation being a more superficial, potentially damaging and irrelevant for spiritual growth, and the other being acknowledgement, a deeper feeling of appreciation and acceptance which starts with one’s self.


“Acknowledgement begins with you. Unless I can look at the person in the mirror, and actually acknowledge myself and my journey, how could I ever feel that or experience that from another person?” - Nicole Gibson


Acknowledgement is about giving. It’s about being humble, serving and giving back. Aside from acknowledging yourself, you can also use it to bring out the change in others and also give them strength to their viewpoint.


“To receive someone’s gift is to actually to allow their perception of the world to be strengthened by you.” - Nicole Gibson

Emotional GRIT with Dr. Neeta Bhushan Emotional GRIT with Dr. Neeta Bhushan Sun, 07 Oct 2018 21:00:46 GMT 54:32 5bba1b9595b9ff002af5efc0 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/dr-neeta-bhushan full This week, we’re joined by Dr. Neeta Bhushan, a social entrepreneur, best-selling author, international speaker, leadership coach and the advocate of emotional health.


Neeta is a former cosmetic dentist. Facing adversity and tragedy throughout her teenage years pushed her into a position of having to fight for herself and her family. After major successes in her education and early career, Neeta quickly found herself in the position of owning a million-dollar practice. However, after years of giving everything she had to create the perfect life, she became emotionally drained and burnt out, stuck in a job she didn’t find fulfilling and in an abusive, poisonous relationship.


Neeta sold her practice and went on a journey to find herself. She has traveled the world, visiting 45 countries across 15 years, all the while getting immersed in the field of behavioral psychology. Her intent was to better understand her own personal journey of fighting off adversity and gain insight into the mechanisms which helped her establish herself as a strong, resilient human being. On her journey, she met her partner and soulmate Ajit Nawalkha, who has also appeared as a guest on our show.


She had consolidated her collective life experiences and knowledge into a book titled “Emotional GRIT”. In this book, Neeta explores different causes of frustration and burnout, potential solutions for these problems, as well as the notion of emotional resilience and instructions on how to obtain and strengthen it.


From burnout to inner peace, from emotional numbness to mindfulness, Neeta’s story of serving love is an inspiration to us all.


Connect with Neeta:


Neeta’s Story of Rising Through Tragedy and Adversity


Neeta was raised in a loving and nurturing family, but sadly, she had grown up in dealing with losing them. When she was 16 she lost her mother. At 17 she lost her brother, and at 19 her father passed away, leaving her with immense tragedy and the responsibility of raising and providing for a younger brother. She quickly transitioned from the role of a child to the role of a parent, investing all her energy into her education and career development.


Getting a doctorate and building a million-dollar practice was easy, in her own words, but there was more to the life that from the outside looked picture perfect. On the inside, Neeta was struggling. Putting up a strong face for her brother and the rest of her family was a mere mask for hiding the emotional numbness she felt, as a result of being in a toxic relationship and working at a job she didn’t find fulfilling.


“From the outside, everything looked picture-perfect, but from the inside, I was spiritually dead, emotionally dead, and just burnt out.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


She ended up selling her practice, leaving her abusive husband and embarked on a self-searching journey. Traveling all over the world she had discovered a new purpose. Neeta started exploring the world of human behavior and used her very own experiences with adversity to develop a system for transformation and strengthening your resilience. After taking care of herself, she found new fulfillment in helping others and serving love.


“In order to serve others, you need to serve yourself first.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


What is GRIT?


“Grit is really the tenacity to stick with something, even when it is challenging, even when it is tough.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


Neeta’s teachings are based on the concepts of awareness, compassion, empathy, and happiness. She is aiming to help others build their emotional intelligence and strengthen their own resilience muscle for dealing with adversity, tragedy, and loss.


She uses GRIT as an acronym which represents the transformation process and contains 4 major stages:


  1. Growth - understanding the importance of your own awareness and your ability to self-reflect
  2. Revelation - making peace with your past mistakes, and accept the fears & past stories that have held you back to cultivate self-belief
  3. Innovation - making the commitment to embrace change and challenge your thinking from a different perspective and be open to opportunities
  4. Transformation -  taking the right steps and full action to design the new leadership of your life.


It is through these 4 stages that we achieve self-improvement. They do not happen overnight, and they are not a one-time occurrence. It is a pattern of self-acceptance and empowerment which continuously repeats itself on our way to self-actualization and becoming more fulfilled.


“It’s cyclical. You never stop growing, you never stop within the cycle, you never stop within the seasons of life.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


But before you’re able to get involved with the process of transformation, there is a single condition you need to satisfy and that is to be open to change. In order to truly make meaningful modifications in our behavior, we need to be willing, ready and inviting in terms of changing.


“If you are building your EQ or your self-awareness, the first part is to be open for growth.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


Keep It Lighthearted


“When things get tough in life when stressors come up, when challenges come up, when adversity rises if we take ourselves way too seriously, we’re just going to burst.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


Having experienced great amounts of stress caused by either tragedy, adversity or overworking herself, Neeta emphasizes the necessity of having a cheerful, lighthearted approach to life. When things get tough, especially in the corporate sense, we need to be able to know when to take a step back, get out of our heads and realize that not everything is as serious as it seems. Or at least it doesn’t have to be. Whether you’re stressing out about a meeting or giving an important lecture in front of a large crowd, it’s important to take things as they go and not to give in to our fears and let them take over us.


The problem is that money has been a huge part of our culture in terms of values. But aside from its practical use, money can’t be a substitute for the things we truly need and yearn for in life. Love, happiness, fulfillment, finding your true purpose… You simply can’t put a price tag on some things in life.


“The success parameter has always been around how much do you make, and nobody really talks about the success being - happiness.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


Fear as a Key Obstacle


“You are your biggest block. So if you are your biggest block always, in starting new things, and doing new things, in getting things done, then you will have to surrender to whatever that fear is in order to be open to growing.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


Fear is an essential emotional aspect of life. During our formative years, it has a very useful function in teaching us to avoid certain obvious threats we may face. The problem is as we grow older and become more socialized, the list of things we define as threats becomes longer and longer. Some fears are caused by specific social situations, but more often than not, fear comes from imagining what might go wrong. Not completing a certain task, not achieving your goal, not being accepted by others… Those anxious thoughts are created within ourselves by ourselves, and we need to recognize and face them. In her book, Neeta also points out ways to detect these fear patterns and calls us to act in spite of them in search for acceptance.


“When you’re actually open to those fears, and you take action anyway, then you’re able to accept your current reality.” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan


Transformation and Serving Love


Themes of transformation and serving love keep reappearing throughout the conversation. Through her own personal experience, Neeta has come to a realization that the true way of achieving happiness is through love and caring for others. She continues to help others by guiding them through the process of recognizing their own true values, accepting their true selves, strengthening their resilience and opening themselves to change.


“There are aspects of yourself that are willing to be birthed right now. And what does that transformation look like for you?” - Dr. Neeta Bhushan

Building Great Minds with Rhea Lalla Building Great Minds with Rhea Lalla Sun, 30 Sep 2018 21:00:21 GMT 55:53 5bb0b4c7f6335db2349275a6 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/rhea-lalla full This week we’re joined by Rhea Lalla, an entrepreneur, certified trainer, parenting coach, speaker, author, and an emotional intelligence specialist. She is the founder of Build Great Minds, she offers private coaching, online courses and leads live seminars on building highly developed emotional, intellectual and creative skills sets in kids, so they achieve success in all areas of life


Prior to starting her own business, Rhea has been a part of the corporate world gaining valuable experience in coaching and training, all the while working with executives and senior management. She has worked all over the world in places like North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and the Caribbean.


Back in 2012, she started Build Great Minds which offers parents private coaching, online courses and leads live seminars on building highly developed emotional, intellectual and creative skills sets in kids, so they achieve success in all areas of life. Rhea is helping parents conceptualize unwelcome patterns in their behavior and teaches new ones, useful to both the parent and the child.


Whether she’s building apartments out of shipping containers in the Caribbean or helping parents develop a healthier, more nurturing and more fulfilling relationships with their children, Rhea is constantly searching for a way to improve herself, determined to see the world in the most beautiful, positive way possible.


Connect with Rhea:


Rhea’s Origin Story: What Experiences Have Led Her to Become an EQ Specialist


“I’ve always been in the world of emotional intelligence.” - Rhea Lalla


Rhea’s upbringing was unconventional. From a very young age, she was guided to express her creativity freely, in terms of perspective taking and self-awareness. There is a strong connection between Rhea’s ability to sense, feel and respond to people’s emotions and need, and the simple game of trying to guess what are other people in the park thinking. Learning and growing through these games, in a safe, loving and nurturing environment, allowed her to pick up emotional cues and patterns in behavior, essential aspects of emotional intelligence.


But these guessing games also allowed her to understand and develop a crucial technique she will later come to use and apply in everyday life situations. The ability to produce different explanations for why a certain scenario played out, informs you about the complexities of life. There could be many reasons why a person did what they did or said what they said, and it is important not to get attached to the idea there is a one, single way of interpreting the situation. Allow yourself to witness a whole spectrum of possibilities, and choose to accept the one which will give you the most optimistic and positive version of life.


“You start accumulating a variety of reasons as to why somebody is behaving, or responding or communicating in a particular way. And what you learn is not to get attached to any “one” way of thinking.” - Rhea Lalla


The Importance of Naming Emotions in Early Childhood Experiences


“So much of how we see the world, how we respond to the world, how we feel about ourselves, is intrinsically determined in those first 5 to 10 years.”


We discuss how much the formative years of our development affect what type of person we’re going to become. All of what we’re experiencing as children is seeping into our subconscious, conditioning the way we see, feel and interact with the world around us.


Not being able to name a specific emotion is a real problem for children. The frustration it brings forces them to shun and disassociate from certain emotions, which can eventually be wiped out from their emotional landscape. It is the parent’s role to recognize specific emotions that the child is experiencing, and to propose a name for what they’re feeling.


“It’s so important, at a very young age, to help children understand their emotional space and give them language.” - Rhea Lalla


Are Emotions Being Neglected in Today’s Society?


“I think that emotions have been ignored far too long, and this is our opportunity to do a deep dive into the places we may have been afraid to.” - Rhea Lalla


It looks like doing anything to get away from feelings has become a standard in dealing with them. Distracting ourselves and not allowing to feel our own emotions is a huge part of the problem people are experiencing in their everyday lives. Rhea invites us to feel our feelings. Emotions are in our physiology, and we need to allow ourselves to experience them with the entirety of our being. They have been designed to help you on your life’s journey, and if we’re so focused on dismissing them, we will be losing a valuable source of information about the world, and distort the way in which we interpret life.


“A human being is a human feeling.” - Rhea Lalla


The Parenting Journey and How to Re-parent Yourself


“Parents will always do better than what their parents did, and that’s the natural state of things.” - Rhea Lalla


Rhea believes that working with parents has been the most challenging aspect of her entire career. Helping people help their children is a noble, but also a very difficult task. But the secret to being a better parent is not some knowledge and wisdom you can just acquire and have all the answers. It is not an achievement you unlock. The answer lies in the approach. It’s about asking the right questions, and being open and creative in answering them. No two situations will be completely identical, and neither will there be a “one-size-fits-all“ solution. The real gift in Rhea’s teachings is understanding that in order to really achieve transformation, you need to ask yourself the question: “What is it about me, that created that?”


“There is no arrival point… It is every day, you say, “I’m going to climb a mountain”, and you make 3 steps up and 2 steps down. But the difference is, every day you say, “I want to be on the mountain!” - Rhea Lalla


Nonverbal Communication and Why is Feedback Important?


“It’s in the slightest eyebrow tweak, it’s in the slightest lip curl that the entire message gets changed.” - Rhea Lalla


There is a completely latent aspect of communication we’re often overlooking. Beneath all the verbal, there is a sea of nonverbal. A world of gestures, movements, postures, facial expressions which not only convey valuable information, but are often coinciding with the spoken language, and looking for congruity between the two is one of the arts of understanding emotional intelligence. That is why we need to be authentic in our nonverbal communication if we want to get our message across and in a clear manner.


“If much of what we’re doing is in our blind spots, you have to fetishize feedback.” - Rhea Lalla


Yet, so much is still unavailable to us, especially about our own behavior. Some things are just a matter of perspective, and that is why feedback is such a useful tool in transformation and self-improvement. Rhea shares her own experiences about asking for and receiving feedback from her friends, partner, and even her own children. It’s important to explain the end goal of the process of asking for their opinions because these are the people who love you the most, and their first instinct might be to protect you or to rationalize away from useful criticism. 


“Do the work, know that there’s no perfection, and just watch how beautiful all that unfolding can be.” - Rhea Lalla

But the secret to being a better parent is not some knowledge and wisdom you can just acquire and have all the answers. It is not an achievement you unlock. The answer lies in the approach. It’s about asking the right questions, and being open and creative in answering them. No two situations will be completely identical, and neither will there be a “one-size-fits-all“ solution. The real gift in Rhea’s teachings is understanding that in order to really achieve transformation, you need to ask yourself the question: “What is it about me, that created that?”


“There is no arrival point… It is every day, you say, “I’m going to climb a mountain”, and you make 3 steps up and 2 steps down. But the difference is, every day you say, “I want to be on the mountain!” - Rhea Lalla


Nonverbal Communication and Why is Feedback Important?


“It’s in the slightest eyebrow tweak, it’s in the slightest lip curl that the entire message gets changed.” - Rhea Lalla


There is a completely latent aspect of communication we’re often overlooking. Beneath all the verbal, there is a sea of nonverbal. A world of gestures, movements, postures, facial expressions which not only convey valuable information, but are often coinciding with the spoken language, and looking for congruity between the two is one of the arts of understanding emotional intelligence. That is why we need to be authentic in our nonverbal communication if we want to get our message across and in a clear manner.


“If much of what we’re doing is in our blind spots, you have to fetishize feedback.” - Rhea Lalla


Yet, so much is still unavailable to us, especially about our own behavior. Some things are just a matter of perspective, and that is why feedback is such a useful tool in transformation and self-improvement. Rhea shares her own experiences about asking for and receiving feedback from her friends, partner, and even her own children. It’s important to explain the end goal of the process of asking for their opinions because these are the people who love you the most, and their first instinct might be to protect you or to rationalize away from useful criticism. 


“Do the work, know that there’s no perfection, and just watch how beautiful all that unfolding can be.” - Rhea Lalla

Overcoming Adversity to Make a Real Impact with Martyn Sibley Overcoming Adversity to Make a Real Impact with Martyn Sibley Sun, 23 Sep 2018 21:00:40 GMT 40:35 5ba7a38b06375c281eaf3141 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/martyn-sibley full This week we’re joined by Martyn Sibley, a serial entrepreneur, author and the co-founder and CEO of Disability Horizons, an online disability lifestyle magazine that aims to give people with disabilities a voice.


Martyn is suffering from a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a genetic condition that makes the muscles weaker and causes problems with movement. Experiencing both societal exclusion and a feeling of inferiority because of it hasn’t stopped him in any shape or form from achieving his life goals and dreams. From gaining a Masters degree in Economics and Marketing to working for a huge NGO, to becoming a successful entrepreneur, he has shown that with a right attitude and approach we can all become captains of our own destiny.


Martyn started his career working for Scope, a disability equality charity. After several years, he felt that he is not reaching his full potential, so he decided to pursue and explore the entrepreneurial lifestyle. From his passion for helping others by sharing his experiences, an idea for an online magazine was born. He co-founded Disability Horizons back in 2011 and has been providing people with disabilities with valuable insights on the topics of technology, relationships, sports, employment, and travel ever since. In 2015 Martyn had co-founded Accomable, an online portal for accessible tourism which was subsequently acquired by Airbnb.


He is also a published author, having released a book titled “Everything is Possible”, in 2016. After successfully funding the project through Kickstarter, Martyn shared his experiences from his travels around the world, hoping to provide others with energy and motivation on their path to self-actualization.


Martyn also hosts his own podcast called “The Martyn Sibley Show” where he interviews influential and successful people, covering all aspects of life from politics to sport, from business to arts.


It doesn’t really matter if he’s traveling across the far ends of the globe, blogging about his ideas and experiences, or even flying a plane, Martyn is on a path of inspiring others, regardless of whether they’re struggling with disability or not.

Becoming an Entrepreneur in the Face of Adversity


“I’ve always been a dreamer and wanted the world to be a better place.” - Martyn Sibley


Drawing inspiration from the great entrepreneurial minds of our days, naming Richard Branson as an example, Martyn has always felt deep inside him the desire to run his own business one day. With Disability Horizons, he has made his dreams into reality, providing people with disabilities with an abundance of interesting stories and articles, but more importantly, building a sense of community around his brand.


While working at Scope, he gained relevant experience which would help him become a successful business owner he is today. But to be truly happy and achieve his full potential, he had to leave the sense of security coming from a steady 9 to 5 job, and dive deep into the oceans of entrepreneurial lifestyle where uncertainty and new challenges are an everyday theme.


“I had this dread about getting up every morning and going to the same office. Sitting in the traffic in London, and stuck at my desk and being in all these meetings that didn’t feel kind of purposeful.“ - Martyn Sibley


Getting into Blogging and Starting His Own Business


“When I was a teenager, if someone was like 10, 20 years older, and was doing a load of cool stuff, it wouldn’t have mattered if I did exactly the same things, just to know it was possible would have been really, really powerful.” - Martyn Sibley


After leaving Scope, Martyn started blogging about his experiences in order to give other people with disabilities an insight into what can be achieved in spite of adversity. The idea of being a living proof of what can be achieved with a right attitude was what kept him going. Over time he got more and more exposure in the media, all the while reaching a bigger audience with his message and building a solid foundation for his very own startup. At the moment, Disability Horizons has an amazing 50 000 readers per month, an audience predominantly consisting of people with disabilities and their families.


“I’ve got this... like a calling, it felt... to share my personal story, and make them feel that the world is actually open and accessible. And even if it’s not open and accessible in a physical way all the time, there are still so many opportunities to go and grab.” - Martyn Sibley


Working on his magazine and interacting with his audience, Martyn acquired useful insight which led him to co-found Accomable, an accessible travel startup that helped people with disabilities find and book adapted holiday accommodation worldwide online. With their initial elevator pitch being “Airbnb for disabled people”, it is incredible to see things coming full circle with Airbnb actually acquiring Accommable two years later.


A Message for Everyone


Considering everything that’s happened in the past couple of years, Martyn has come to a realization that his true mission is to help everyone, and not just those with disabilities.


“I’ve come to realize that I shouldn’t limit myself just to supporting disabled people… We’re still doing all that stuff for disabled people… But really building on it and using my experiences to help all people.” - Martyn Sibley


His new message, going beyond disability, is cemented in getting to know ourselves, building a community and striving for freedom. Martyn believes that in order to take charge of our lives we need to know and be aware of things that are most important to us.


“If we understand what our beliefs are and check if they’re serving our true self, then we really can be the captain of our own destiny.” - Martyn Sibley


Through videos, podcasts, blogging, and social media, Martyn has created a community and essentially provided people with a place to witness and exchange experiences which lead to self-improvement.


Finally, he also reflects on how freedom to do things we really want coming from being a business owner, is an important factor in his journey to change the world. Even though Martyn is fully aware that there are people who do not necessarily share this aspiration and find the employee life more suitable for their needs, his first-hand experience has made him cherish the freedom entrepreneurship brought to his life.


“There’s definitely a lot around disability that instills entrepreneurial skills and knowledge in you. They’re the push factors.” - Martyn Sibley


Martyn goes on to describe how living with a disability has affected him and pushed him to develop different skills which allowed him to become so successful in today’s business world. Having to fight against the stigma of disability which is widely spread through media, has made him more resilient and even more determined to help others.


“We’re disabled by the barriers of society. We’re not disabled by the medical condition that we have. And so, instead of curing or fixing ourselves with the medical condition, it’s about society being more open and inclusive to difference.” - Martyn Sibley


He also credits his experiences with Mindvalley with playing an important part on his road to personal growth and self-improvement.


What Does the Future Hold?


Martyn is currently looking into producing an online course in which plans to unpack his ideas and teachings. He has spent a lot of time doing research and he is hoping that through developing his course, he will be able to convey his message in a slightly more structured way, which will allow him to educate people all over the world.


“What matters is… what experiences you’ve had, what growth have you had and what impact you’ve made.” - Martyn Sibley

6 Long-Term Strategies for a Happier Life with Kristina Mand-Lakhiani 6 Long-Term Strategies for a Happier Life with Kristina Mand-Lakhiani Sun, 16 Sep 2018 21:00:57 GMT 33:16 5b9e1de644b6013d42b3e2db no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/kristina-mand-lakhiani full This week on Inspired Evolution, we’re joined by Kristina Mand-Lakhiani, a serial entrepreneur, international speaker, and artist. She is also the co-founder and head of the Russian Language sector at Mindvalley, a global educational organization offering top training for peak human performance.


Kristina has been a part of the personal growth and transformation industry for the past 15 years. She has held numerous lectures on many different themes including self-improvement and relationship crafting, some even available on YouTube. In one particularly popular video, Kristina educates on how to build a customer relationship in 100 days.


Her personal life is as rich and plentiful, if not more, as her professional life. Whether it’s singing her two children to sleep, playing the harp or immersing herself into classical literature, Kristina is set on taking in every moment and invites us to do the same. Her honesty and authenticity are breathtaking, in a truly educational conversation on dealing with emotions and the search for the true meaning of happiness.


Connect with Kristina:



The Many Upsets of Perfectionism


“Perfectionism is a curse. Because we hold such a high bar for ourselves and we do things for perfectionism sake.” - Kristina Mand-Lakhiani


Kristina goes over her days of attending school and draws from personal experience in order to prove that perfectionism will, in fact, do you more harm than good. The idea of achieving perfection is a cumbersome notion to bear when considering your goals and values. It pushes us into the realm of unrealistic expectations, all the while having to endure the unnatural levels of stress it is inevitably causing. For Kristina, perfectionism is the thing which prevents us from being truly happy.


What Does It Mean to Be Happy?


“First of all, I think we don’t know what happiness is… It’s a very subjective thing.” - Kristina Mand-Lakhiani


Happiness can mean one thing for us, but it can also mean something completely different to someone else. It is a subjective concept, as Kristina puts it, one even scientists seek to avoid in their research. There is still plenty we can do in terms of utilizing the idea of happiness and trying to understand it better so that we could make it an essential part of our lives. For starters, we could make a clear distinction between happiness and other similar, but significantly different terms.


“We should not confuse happiness, joy and fun, which seem like very similar things.” - Kristina Mand-Lakhiani


In the context of life, fun and joy are usually restricted to short burst and periods of time, while happiness is more of a long-term thing. Happiness is a marathon, and the ways in which we try to attain it, need to correspond well with its long-lasting nature.


Long-term Strategies Which Will Help Us Find Happiness


Kristina offers 6 long-term strategies that will help you on your path to finding happiness in your everyday life. These techniques include:


  1. Gratitude
  2. Consciousness (the ability to be present)
  3. The quality of our relationships
  4. Forgiveness
  5. Self-love
  6. The ability to deal with negative emotions


“You express gratitude and for a while, you remind yourself: “Yeah, there are things that are good in my life, not everything is bad.” But you don’t feel the ecstasy from it.” - Kristina Mand-Lakhiani


Gratitude is a great example of why these techniques have an effect when considered long-term. Having and expressing gratitude is not a quick fix. It will not give you an immediate sense of calm, joy or any other brief emotional state you’re striving for. But when applied continuously, throughout our lives, gratitude will give us a more holistic perspective, it will make us see the bigger picture and ultimately will lead to us feeling happy.


“Time is an illusion! And a lot of negative emotions live either in the future or the past… Happiness is the thing that is in the now!” - Kristina Mand-Lakhiani


Kristina compares consciousness to a pulse-check. She emphasizes the take-a-step-back effect it has on us when we are dealing with difficult and negative emotional states. Another benefit of knowing how to be in the present is that it will allow us to avoid all of the negativity that appears from either our past (like regret or not being able to let go) or from our future (like anxiety that arises from uncertainty).


Many studies have shown in the past that happiness correlates with the quality of our relationships with others. Family, friends, coworkers… Having a solid and strong connection with people that enrich our lives is a very important aspect of happiness, which is quite rational when you consider the other side of the coin. If we do not have good relationships with people we interact with on a daily basis, and especially with the people we are closest to emotionally, our days would be filled with stress, angst, and sadness. Having quality relationships protects us from those emotional states.


Other important techniques are forgiveness, self-love and the ability to deal with negative emotions. Forgiveness will allow us to let go and not dwell on the things we can’t change. Self-love is all about having a positive relationship with yourself. To know how to give yourself credit, and to not beat yourself up.


How to Deal With Negative Emotions


“We can all be happy in the happy, but if we can be ok in the unhappy and get back to happy after that - that’s the art of being happy!” - Kristina Mand-Lakhiani


And finally, dealing with negativity. Life will inevitably have its lows, difficult moments that test us. But the important thing is not to ignore or avoid them, but to learn how to find strength from within and use these unfortunate situations as an opportunity for personal growth. Kristina also shares two basic steps to follow when dealing with negative emotions.


  1. Take action only when your emotional reaction has subsided
  2. Accept and name your emotions


The first step is about giving ourselves time to feel what we’re feeling, and allowing our body to return to a more balanced state before we begin the process of accepting and letting go. The second is all about being true to ourselves and being honest about what is happening to us.


When we do not follow through with the second step we make one of three common mistakes. We try to downgrade our emotions by not naming them properly, deny their existence entirely, or we try to move on too quickly from them, without giving ourselves time to heal. These three mistakes are also known as spiritual bypassing, which only leads to unresolved issues. These issues will not leave us, no matter how much we tell ourselves we are happy or joyful. Accepting what is happening to us and giving ourselves time to heal is key in dealing with negative emotions. We need to be prepared to experience life to its fullest, and sometimes that means taking the good along with the bad.


“We are here to let life through us, and not past us.” - Kristina Mand-Lakhiani

This week on Inspired Evolution, we’re joined by Dr. John Demartini, a world-renowned human behavioral specialist, educator, public speaker, internationally published author, and business consultant. He is also the founder of the Demartini Institute, which is a private research and education organization with a curriculum of over 72 courses covering multiple aspects of human development.


Dr. Demartini’s seminars are a culmination of his contributions to the field of self-improvement. “The Breakthrough Experience” is a 2-day seminar which has already been presented in over 60 countries, revolving around two major focal points. The first one is the doctor’s revolutionary ‘Demartini Method’, meant to help you deal with all kinds of emotional challenges in your everyday life. The other is the ‘Demartini Value Determination Process’ which helps you determine your drives and inspirations. His other noteworthy seminars are ‘The Prophecy I Experience’, ‘Empyriance 1’.


He is celebrated in the business world, working both individually and collectively with entrepreneurs, board members, CEOs, managers, teams, and employees for over 46 years. Through presentations and consultations, Dr. Demartini aims to solve real problems and educate business professionals on the topics of human values and excellence in the workplace, defining the corporate vision and mission statement, leadership development, team building and so much more.

Connect with Dr. John Demartini:


Dr. Demartini’s origin story


“I had a dream when I was 18 years old to wake up my mental capacities and create original ideas that served humanity.” - Dr. John Demartini


Dr. Demartini wished he could share the company of world’s most influential people and share his ideas with them. He related to the idea of a global family. He yearned to be inspired.


Throughout his life he has worked hard on all aspects of human life he later defined and called The 7 Powers of Human Life, which are:

  1. Inspired or spiritual mission
  2. Mental genius/creativity
  3. Vocational success, achievement, and service
  4. Financial freedom and independence
  5. Family love and intimacy and continuance of procreation
  6. Social contribution, influence, and leadership
  7. Physical health, stamina, strength, and well-being


He believes empowering yourself in all of these areas is the key to a meaningful and successful life, and his mission is to help others achieve just that through education and sharing his experience.


The Importance of Empowerment


“I don’t mean empowered by overpowering others. It’s just the power to live congruently and fulfill what’s truly meaningful and inspiring in priority to you.” - Dr. John Demartini


Empowerment is an essential step toward achieving self-actualization and unequivocally leads to self-improvement. It should be an important goal on our life’s journey because if we do not achieve empowerment, we will inevitably get overpowered. We need to pursue congruity with our highest values and reap the rewards from knowing that we’re fulfilling our true purpose in life. Dr. Demartini further concludes that if we do not implement this approach we will continue to live in the amygdala, interpreting the world in solely in terms of avoiding pain and seeking pleasure, which only leads to futility.


“If you don’t empower yourself intellectually you’ll be told what to think. If you don’t empower yourself vocationally you’ll be told what to do. If you don’t empower yourself financially you’ll be told what you’re worth.” - Dr. John Demartini


Empowerment is a question of inspiration, rather than motivation. Dr. Demartini purposefully makes a distinction between these two often interchangeable concepts, in order to accentuate the intrinsic nature of the energy that comes from being in line with your highest values and life goals.


“Whatever is highest on our value we are spontaneously inspired from within to fulfill.

And whatever is low on our values we require intrinsic motivation to get us to do it.” - Dr. John Demartini


Once we identify what we want from life and what are the things most important to us, our brain becomes maximally effective which further leads to maximizing achievement and self-worth. This feeling will allow us to pursue new challenges, and at this point in our lives, Dr. Demartini believes, is that we find integrity and leadership.


Life is Giving us Feedback, and We Need To Acknowledge It


“We’ve lost contact with the feedback mechanisms of our physiology and epigenetic feedback it is bringing.” - Dr. John Demartini


Our body is constantly sending us information about the current state we are in. If we are somewhat endangered or polluted in any way, we will instantly receive a message, a feedback that we need to know how to decipher and understand so that we can re-establish order to our lives and improve our well-being. This feedback is based on a very basic mechanism which we use to interpret reality.


“Whenever you resent something it represents a predator. Whenever you’re infatuated with something it represents the pray.”- Dr. John Demartini


Most personal problems we run into in life are connected to dealing with authority, injecting all of these self-inflicting boundaries that lie in the super-ego. We need to transcend these voices that tell us what we must do, rid ourselves of internal conflicts and allow ourselves to be unique and do something great in the world.


How to Uncover and Understand Your Values


“Every decision you make is based on what you believe will give you the greatest advantage or disadvantage to what you value most.” - Dr. John Demartini


In order to help people to understand what their highest values in life are, Dr. Demartini created an instrument which helps identify 13 value determinants. Further assessment will then isolate everything down to 3 main things that you value in life. Once you get a clear idea what is most important to you, you need to spend your time with activities that will help you fulfill your life goals, and delegate everything else.


Bear in mind that your values, however solid they might be, are prone to change. They are gradually modifying through life. The change in your values may also be a consequence of fulfilling your old ones and moving on to new challenges.


The Newfound Energy From Achieving Congruity with Your Values


“If you don’t fill your day with high priority actions that inspire you it fills up with low priority actions that don’t.” - Dr. John Demartini


When you are fulfilling your life’s purpose, you will find new sources of energy coming from within. It’s important to utilize and direct it towards achieving your goals. This is where planning and time management comes in. If you fill your day with activities that are meant to help you achieve self-actualization, and if you remember to stay persistent, over time you will build momentum which will guide you to a place you’ve always wanted to be.


“You have to be able to say no to things that aren’t a priority if you’re going to say yes to things that are a priority” - Dr. John Demartini


Ask yourself are the things you’re doing bringing you closer to achieving your goals. If not, look to delegate them so that you can spend time doing things that will bring you the most joy and fulfillment. You also need to learn how to say “no”. We all try to act selflessly and even though spending time doing things that don’t offer us purpose may help others in short-term, looking at the grand scheme of things, it can also do more harm than good.


“Give yourself permission to do something extraordinary on planet Earth.

The true you is extra ordinary.” - Dr. John Demartini

He is also the founder of the Demartini Institute, which is a private research and education organization with a curriculum of over 72 courses covering multiple aspects of human development.


Dr. Demartini’s seminars are a culmination of his contributions to the field of self-improvement. “The Breakthrough Experience” is a 2-day seminar which has already been presented in over 60 countries, revolving around two major focal points. The first one is the doctor’s revolutionary ‘Demartini Method’, meant to help you deal with all kinds of emotional challenges in your everyday life. The other is the ‘Demartini Value Determination Process’ which helps you determine your drives and inspirations. His other noteworthy seminars are ‘The Prophecy I Experience’, ‘Empyriance 1’.


He is celebrated in the business world, working both individually and collectively with entrepreneurs, board members, CEOs, managers, teams, and employees for over 46 years. Through presentations and consultations, Dr. Demartini aims to solve real problems and educate business professionals on the topics of human values and excellence in the workplace, defining the corporate vision and mission statement, leadership development, team building and so much more.


Dr. John Demartini is also very well known for his social initiatives, in which he has cooperated with prisons and police services across the world, making an impact in the USA, SA, Mexico, Ireland, and Canada. He has presented a program titled ‘Hero Within’ to over 10,000 police men and women around the world. His work with wardens has provided much-needed support in the fight for lowering repeat offense statistics.


He is the author of 9 internationally best-selling books translated into 28 different languages. His latest book titled The Values Factor explores the benefits that being aware of your highest values can help you reinvent yourself, and gain newfound energy. These themes will appear regularly throughout the podcast.


Dr. Demartini selflessly shares with us his tremendous knowledge and wisdom he has gained over the years, which comes from an astonishing number of different fields and disciplines. This conversation truly is an insightful and thought-provoking experience.


Connect with Dr. John Demartini:


Dr. Demartini’s origin story


“I had a dream when I was 18 years old to wake up my mental capacities and create original ideas that served humanity.” - Dr. John Demartini


Dr. Demartini wished he could share the company of world’s most influential people and share his ideas with them. He related to the idea of a global family. He yearned to be inspired.


Throughout his life he has worked hard on all aspects of human life he later defined and called The 7 Powers of Human Life, which are:

  1. Inspired or spiritual mission
  2. Mental genius/creativity
  3. Vocational success, achievement, and service
  4. Financial freedom and independence
  5. Family love and intimacy and continuance of procreation
  6. Social contribution, influence, and leadership
  7. Physical health, stamina, strength, and well-being


He believes empowering yourself in all of these areas is the key to a meaningful and successful life, and his mission is to help others achieve just that through education and sharing his experience.


The Importance of Empowerment


“I don’t mean empowered by overpowering others. It’s just the power to live congruently and fulfill what’s truly meaningful and inspiring in priority to you.” - Dr. John Demartini

I Am Enough with Marisa Peer I Am Enough with Marisa Peer Sun, 02 Sep 2018 22:13:12 GMT 53:31 5b8bf8eb1a4c86ef4cad6cae no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/marisa-peer full Know and accept that you’re enough.


Our guest for this week is Marisa Peer, a best-selling author, motivational speaker, a leading celebrity therapist and a pioneering hypnotherapist trainer.


Marisa began her journey studying to become a child psychologist but has later built on her career by earning further qualifications at the institute from the Hypnosis Training Institute of Los Angeles and the Pritikin Longevity Centre. She possesses a deep insight into the world of nutrition as well and was introduced to it through her own personal struggles. Marisa herself had been battling with an eating disorder throughout the first 20 years of her life.


Her title of a best-selling author came to be as a result of 4 remarkably successful books, on various subjects. From teaching you improve your life by reprogramming your brain, Marisa will help you establish healthier relationships with the food you eat, build and fortify your self-esteem and self-confidence, and even increase your fertility! The subject of her last book titled You Can Be Younger was a revolutionary approach to the age-old question of how to stay young. She elaborates on how positive thinking can lead to the arrest of the aging process, all made possible by the power of your subconscious mind.


Marisa is also the UK’s leading motivational speaker, and over the years, her lectures and talks have become available all over the internet. She has held two Ted Talks, one on the topic of the gaining connection and avoiding rejection, and the other focusing on how training your mind can help you go beyond your perceived and constructed limits. Her YouTube channel also has a ton of free useful mini-courses you can explore and try out.


Marisa’s renowned for her therapy work, with an astonishing list of clients that include many of the world’s finest international superstars, CEOs, Olympic athletes and even royalty! Aside from sharing her wonderful anecdotes, spot on analogies and profound wisdom, she will be giving us precious insight into her innovative process called Rapid Transformational Therapy, or RTT.


A Case of a Modern Day Celebrity in Distress


“I don’t do what other therapists do.” - Marisa Peer


Many of Marisa’s clients are very popular celebrities and she was very kind to share details of a specific case involving an actor in time of mental crisis. He has refused to go to work, expressing symptoms and behavior Marisa immediately recognizes and shines a new light on the problems presented.


“If I was a doctor giving you a diagnosis, here’s my diagnosis - you just don’t think you’re good enough do you?” - Marisa Peer


The first part of her process involves detective-like work, where she intends to quickly determine the root of the problem, usually dating to the period of early childhood. The second part is metaphorically compared to dentistry, as she is determined to pull out and remove all of the negativity clouding over her client.


Her fast-paced approach to therapy has given her client the much needed mental clarity, a fresh definition of his problems and most importantly, a direct way of dealing with them. The self-conditioning and positive self-talk seek to imprint the mind with a simple, precise and a positive message - “I am enough”.


At the end of the segment, she also reflects on a particular case in which her patient had a severe problem with alcohol. The main distinction Marisa made right off the bat was between the presenting and the underlying problem. While conventional therapy may suggest dealing with alcoholism as the key strategy, Marisa shifts focus to the underlying problem - the fact that her client has been perceiving himself as “unlovable”.


“You can put someone like that in AA, you can detox them, but you’re detoxing the problem, and not what lies beneath.” - Marisa Peer


The Main Causes of Mental Health Problems


We are constantly hearing about many different mental health issues and disorders that we should be guarding ourselves against, but Marisa breaks them down into three basic concepts:

  1. I’m not enough
  2. I’m different
  3. What I want is not available


We’ve gone through the first problem to some detail in the first part of our conversation, and some of his variations (eg. “I’m not lovable enough” or “I’m not wealthy enough”).


The second issue is a matter of failing to fit in. Not being able to connect and avoid rejection, which are the fundamental needs we all need to fulfill in our everyday lives. The fear of being rejected often plays out as a self-fulfilling prophecy, leaving the person with a rationalization that they can not connect because they are different. The feeling that people troubled with this type of problem are left with is what is commonly referred to as depression.


The last issue is the problem of not being able to have or acquire something that is desired. But in its core, wanting something that is not available, is a problem of having negative, destructive, unconscious beliefs that ultimately determine your life and prove to be self-fulfilling.


“You make your beliefs, and then your beliefs make you.” - Marisa Peer


The Effects That Positive and Negative Self-talk Have on Your Mental Health


“There’s nothing that will grow your self-esteem like praise, and nothing will diminish it like your own criticism.” - Marisa Peer


The self-dialogue is an essential tool that ultimately leads to change. Whether you decide to speak to yourself in a positive, optimistic way, or in a negative, pessimistic and at times fatalistic manner, your mind will react and adapt accordingly. Everyday conversations with ourselves leave a pattern in our subconscious, that inevitably affect the way we think and feel. These patterns are primarily imprinted in early childhood, and they determine our future character, personality and, ultimately, our behavior. The fear of rejection plays an enormous part in this process.


“We don’t die from rejection but it still feels like we will.” - Marisa Peer


Marisa demonstrates the power of self-dialogue and its effect on our mind through two very clever thought experiments. The Lemon Test, in which the listener is guided to visualize eating a lemon, which is inevitably followed by an increase in salivation.


“Your mind doesn’t care if what you tell it is right or wrong, good or bad, healthy or unhealthy. It just lets it in.” - Marisa Peer


The other experiment explores the direct link between negative self-talk and our physical strength. When we say bad things to ourselves and think destructive thoughts we become weak. But it also works in the opposite direction. The better our thoughts are, the stronger we will feel.


“Negative thoughts physically weaken your body.” - Marisa Peer


What is RRT and How Does It Work?


The main inspiration that has lead Marisa to develop Rapid Transformational Therapy came from a discrepancy between the fact that we live in a fast-track world, and that conventional therapy takes too long. RTT aims to determine the fundamental, underlying problem quickly, and resolve it within one or two therapy sessions. Using practical techniques based on hypnotherapy and self-dialogue, Marisa empowers her clients and gives them a practical way of rewiring their software and dealing with their issues.


Finally, Marisa emphasizes the importance of recognizing when you’re in trouble, polluted by fears that can cause all sorts of rationalizations. It is crucial to find strength at that moment, be mindful and talk yourself out of it.


“You’re allowed to make a mistake, you’re not allowed to beat yourself up and make yourself sick. Because you’re a human!” - Marisa Peer

Living Consciously with JuanPa (Juan Pablo Barahona) Living Consciously with JuanPa (Juan Pablo Barahona) Sun, 26 Aug 2018 22:10:32 GMT 1:00:49 5b8325583ae99ec977ba134b no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/juanpa full Juan Pablo has been submerged in spirituality and healing since the age of 9, due to the health of his brother suddenly deteriorating at the time.

His passion for self-realization and the joy to help others led him to become certified by many different schools in Yoga, Holistic Nutrition, Tantric Philosophy, Master Reiki, Sound Healing, Shamanism, Chinese Medicine, Holistic Therapies and Healing Arts.

He has been teaching in different countries and festivals for more than 15 years and is the co-director of The Yoga and Healing School Lamat, where he shares classes, workshops, immersions and training for 12 years. Juan Pablo is the director and main teacher of the Conscious Living School, an internationally connected institution without walls, whose main purpose is to awaken humanity.

Every healing session, talk, and class he channels are unique and spontaneous, inspired by the moment and by the energy of the group. He perfectly combines science and healing arts to lead his students or audience into an introspective and blissful journey.


In this conversation Juanpa


-Embodied Eligntenment -


We discuss healing beyond conventional medicine. Juanpa's inspirations for founding KAWOQ- Conscious Living School. Emerging from his life's work of embodying spirituality through various ancient spiritual practices.


We deeply discuss spirituality beyond religion and the sbliminal invitation presents itself to pioneering your own spirituality and healing.


JuanPa vulnerably shares the darkest hours from his journey to the point where he comes face-to-face-with suicide.


His saving grace was living in a conscious spiritual community for 4 years that promoted embodiment.

You're here to be authentic, and completely you.


Mission is to wake people us and make money around it.


Through your story.


Understand why you lived what you lived.


Who you are and why you go through what you go through.


Your greatest challenges become your greatest opportunities.


You mind locks into things.


THe universe may have bigger plans for you.


But if your not available - open to the universe with every breathe...


The negative aspect f your ego creates disconnection fromflow,nature and everythign around us.


Thats when our plans get in the way of our purpose.


You need to listen.


Everything is a lesson if you just listen to see it.


The strength of surrendering to flow and universe.


Surrender manifestation. vs. manufactured manifestatation.


The good and non-so-good aspect of ego.


Its never about you.


Youre just a messenger or a channel for energy


-connection- )-awakening- -spiritual growth- -flow- 9purpose- -energy-


howto identify between the two aspects of ego.

when tehres doubt or fear or anger or reaction, defending - that's neagtive ego - your triggered and that the ego of separation

let that uncomforatability go - its like an acid that you can melt


psitive eg is the universe flowing through you


be humble and present to observe what thought patterns are triggering you.


the other negative aspect of ego is when you beleive in your own grandioseness,


we're being upgraded all the time.


When you think you know EVERYTHING, drop into openness and know that you know NOTHING.


Always learning about thought patterns.


For example, Juanpa used to believe that spiritual healing takes a lot of work and is an arduous process.


He identifies that this in itself is just a beleif systemandtaht spiritual healing can occur in a moment.


He introduces: Mega Healing in Micro Timing


It's all in the heart. The energy field of the heart is 5000 times stronger than the mind.


Its getting simpler to connect with your soul and your purpose and who we are and it doesn't have to take so long.


-connection-


there is really nothing to heal. the soul is healed. you are integrated. you are whloe already.

all the qualities of your soul are perfect and successful already. we're just getting in the way. and forcing disconnection.


You're always connected at the soul level but the mind is where disconnection is decided from.


Just "remembering" your connection rather than "learning".



-domestication -


bombarded with external stimuli, buy this, do that, you're not enough, society and its development relies on you looking outwards and feeling like there is not enough.

you were never taught to looking within and living from within.


living from the inner knowing and interconnectedness


breathe


you are always in a meditative state if you choose to.


meditation: observing the mind.


the imbalance of the day:we're too identified with the mind



spirituality can be


emodying your souls purpose


your limiting beliefs holding you back


dream big and manifest


stay open to possibilities


the power of prayer


science is hardbacking many ancient spiritual practices to help bridge the logical mind into being more open


the importance of staying flexible and judgement free


unveiling our hidden blidspots


openness is about humanness


fear holds us back and protects us


share your humanness


being humble is about human


being open in every aspect is about being authentic, being real and being wild !


know yourself, accept yourself


give other people permission to do the same



-creativity-


Juanpa shares the parabel of If youre an avocado tree, make the best avocados possible

If youre a pear tree, make the best pears possible

Many of us look outwards and as avocado trees desire to produce pears.

Many of us look outwards to find ourselves.

But looking inwards, find you authentic expression.


Create from here. You're going to have to Risk it !


Actively feed the parts of you that aredifferent to others and your unqiueness rather than feeding the similarity posts.


-individualised psirituality-


uniqueness of path


your own practice


alchemy of turning lead into gold


LISTENING TO YOURSELF and what you need in the moment


crafting your own relationship with-self.


meditationg, journealing,


surrending to your own inner guidance systems



take your time to listen and be accessible by source

to this creativity energy fromsouce


be accessible to spirit


inspire is inspirit infinite


exhale let go of anything that is holding you back



listen, open


trust in you dreams, message and vision


act - embody it, be

Juan Pablo is the director and main teacher of the Conscious Living School, an internationally connected institution without walls, whose main purpose is to awaken humanity.

Every healing session, talk, and class he channels are unique and spontaneous, inspired by the moment and by the energy of the group. He perfectly combines science and healing arts to lead his students or audience into an introspective and blissful journey.


In this conversation Juanpa


-Embodied Eligntenment -


We discuss healing beyond conventional medicine. Juanpa's inspirations for founding KAWOQ- Conscious Living School. Emerging from his life's work of embodying spirituality through various ancient spiritual practices.


We deeply discuss spirituality beyond religion and the sbliminal invitation presents itself to pioneering your own spirituality and healing.


JuanPa vulnerably shares the darkest hours from his journey to the point where he comes face-to-face-with suicide.


His saving grace was living in a conscious spiritual community for 4 years that promoted embodiment.

You're here to be authentic, and completely you.


Mission is to wake people us and make money around it.


Through your story.


Understand why you lived what you lived.


Who you are and why you go through what you go through.


Your greatest challenges become your greatest opportunities.


You mind locks into things.


THe universe may have bigger plans for you.


But if your not available - open to the universe with every breathe...


The negative aspect f your ego creates disconnection fromflow,nature and everythign around us.


Thats when our plans get in the way of our purpose.


You need to listen.


Everything is a lesson if you just listen to see it.


The strength of surrendering to flow and universe.


Surrender manifestation. vs. manufactured manifestatation.


The good and non-so-good aspect of ego.


Its never about you.


Youre just a messenger or a channel for energy


-connection- )-awakening- -spiritual growth- -flow- 9purpose- -energy-


howto identify between the two aspects of ego.

when tehres doubt or fear or anger or reaction, defending - that's neagtive ego - your triggered and that the ego of separation

let that uncomforatability go - its like an acid that you can melt


psitive eg is the universe flowing through you


be humble and present to observe what thought patterns are triggering you.


the other negative aspect of ego is when you beleive in your own grandioseness,


we're being upgraded all the time.


When you think you know EVERYTHING, drop into openness and know that you know NOTHING.


Always learning about thought patterns.


For example, Juanpa used to believe that spiritual healing takes a lot of work and is an arduous process.


He identifies that this in itself is just a beleif systemandtaht spiritual healing can occur in a moment.


He introduces: Mega Healing in Micro Timing


It's all in the heart. The energy field of the heart is 5000 times stronger than the mind.


Its getting simpler to connect with your soul and your purpose and who we are and it doesn't have to take so long.


-connection-


there is really nothing to heal. the soul is healed. you are integrated. you are whloe already.

all the qualities of your soul are perfect and successful already. we're just getting in the way. and forcing disconnection.


You're always connected at the soul level but the mind is where disconnection is decided from.


Just "remembering" your connection rather than "learning".



-domestication -


bombarded with external stimuli, buy this, do that, you're not enough, society and its development relies on you looking outwards and feeling like there is not enough.

you were never taught to looking within and living from within.


living from the inner knowing and interconnectedness


breathe


you are always in a meditative state if you choose to.


meditation: observing the mind.


the imbalance of the day:we're too identified with the mind



spirituality can be


emodying your souls purpose


your limiting beliefs holding you back


dream big and manifest


stay open to possibilities


the power of prayer


science is hardbacking many ancient spiritual practices to help bridge the logical mind into being more open


the importance of staying flexible and judgement free


unveiling our hidden blidspots


openness is about humanness


fear holds us back and protects us


share your humanness


being humble is about human


being open in every aspect is about being authentic, being real and being wild !


know yourself, accept yourself


give other people permission to do the same



-creativity-


Juanpa shares the parabel of If youre an avocado tree, make the best avocados possible

If youre a pear tree, make the best pears possible

Many of us look outwards and as avocado trees desire to produce pears.

Many of us look outwards to find ourselves.

But looking inwards, find you authentic expression.


Create from here. You're going to have to Risk it !


Actively feed the parts of you that aredifferent to others and your unqiueness rather than feeding the similarity posts.


-individualised psirituality-


uniqueness of path


your own practice


alchemy of turning lead into gold


LISTENING TO YOURSELF and what you need in the moment


crafting your own relationship with-self.


meditationg, journealing,


surrending to your own inner guidance systems



take your time to listen and be accessible by source

to this creativity energy fromsouce


be accessible to spirit


inspire is inspirit infinite


exhale let go of anything that is holding you back



listen, open


trust in you dreams, message and vision


act - embody it, be

Living a Deeply Meaningful Life with Beata Alfoldi Living a Deeply Meaningful Life with Beata Alfoldi Mon, 06 Aug 2018 03:14:07 GMT 51:32 5b6a54a899ad42844b43b6be no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/living-a-deeply-meaningful-life-with-beata-alfoldi full There is a Deep Meaning to Life. In this episode of Inspired Evolution, our reason for being is Inspired by Beata Alfoldi. Beata facilitates 1-on-1 healings, 9-month mentorships for women, global retreats, sacred birthday ceremonies, wedding ceremonies, she presents at festivals, all these incredible offerings have her traveling around the world (nationally, here in Australia, Bali, Mexico, Thailand, Peru and Europe).


Beata features as one of 5 Australia women in a documentary series called Women of Heart, which is based on the work of Maureen Murdoch (a story of the Heroine’s journey vs. David Campell’s famous Hero’s Journey).

She also has her own book coming out later this year.


She generally works with people that have hit “rock-bottom”. These people may have spent many years with scholars, practitioners, therapists, psychologists, etc. She helps people uncover their innate potential and true self can before school, before parents, before religion, before governments, before anyone or society told them who to be.


In this conversation, Beata boldly shares her own personal vulnerable tragedy of losing her just born child. It was at the same time in her life that she lost her mother to cancer and her also a separation from her husband due to the pressure of this phase of her life. She potently describes how that brought her to a deeper connection with death and therefore, ultimately life and herself.


“Once I was stripped of everything I identified with, it became clear who I wasn’t.” – Beata Alfoldi.


Beata shares her own transformative journey from being a world-class dancer to a choreographer, to a yoga teacher, to running a yoga business through to where she is today, facilitating healing for people all over the planet.


She shares her piece on the amazing optimal potential of humans and the collective awakening that we’re always going through. She highlights the life-affirming changes that individuals are taking for themselves and for the planet at the present moment in time. She’s fascinated with the new leadership that is now making decisions beyond profits.


Beata goes on to describe her philosophies on “Walking the Path of the Pathless”. Carving your own unique life, evolving to your own unique inspirations. We have a great conversation about embodying a moment-to-moment relationship with your life through meditation and meditative practices so that you stay connected to your inspirations and your personal evolution.


“Nobody really knows what’s next” – Beata Alfoldi.

So can you still trust the unfolding of life and take action from that place?


Beata shares that Nature is a reflection of Truth. Nature is Dynamic and therefore the Truth is Dynamic. She uses this to explain why so many of her corporate clients are so burned out. They are disconnected from their true self.


Connection to Self and Nature is at the heart of this podcast. She invites us to connect with ourselves on a deeper level which supports our connection to others and the planet. Beata highlights that the internet facilitates greater connection and therefore a greater global awareness that helps create monumental shifts for humanity.


We lightly discuss the nature of how inner changes are reflected in the wider politics or current society, as individuals are growing more and more open-minded, so does society with women’s right, same-sex marriage, etc.


An incredible conversation about Sadhana opens up about halfway through the podcast, where we discuss that although we’re not blind to the atrocities of the world we continually cultivate a positive outlook to ensure that is the change we reinforce and bring into the world.


“We’re interested in Solutions, not Problems.” – Beata Alfoldi.


It’s important to remain open to new things that inspire and encourage evolution but also maintain 100% discernment. Beata explains the vital difference between discernment and judgment. Discernment is about knowing who we are and trusting our intuition towards what we naturally gravitate towards or don’t; rather than labeling things and judging them as needing improvement or good.


Beata explains how she became a potent catalyst for change. She realized that people were naturally accessing her for deep transformation and support it became her service to offer that more and more widely. We discuss the role of passion and purpose. Beata explains that our passions come into full focus once we know who we are. But finding out who we take time. Often we don’t give ourselves the time due to our own commitments or social expectations.


To find out who we are and connect withourselves more deeply, in conjunction with giving ourselves time, Beata once again suggests reflecting on our relationship with time.


“The more we come to the realization that one day we’re going to die, the greater and fiercer our drive to live” – Beata Alfoldi.


The alternative is that we will, unfortunately, day-dream our lives away. Beata regrets that so many people live a life of quiet desperation.


What if you were on your death bed and the person who you are now meet the person you would’ve been with no regrets and no fear. How would you feel in that moment?


We discuss the fear of death and how that actually reflects our fear of life.


She encourages us to take our fears and roleplay them in our mind with “what-if” to the n’th degree. Eg. If you lose your job, the worst case scenario may be that you end up house-sharing or on a friends couch for some time – the point is that it is never as bad as the fear actually makes you feel that it may be.


So Beata calls on us to live a more spiritual and more connected life. She calls on us to live a life that inspires us and others. And it does not have to be grand – it could be making a different choice at breakfast, smiling while you walk, reaching out to you neighbor – cultivating little acts of kindness to navigate past the rigidity and insidious ingraining of routine.


We are always guided and supported through the process of life. Beata reminds us that if we look back on our lives, every step of the way, every meeting, every opportunity, every loss, every win lead us to exactly where we were meant to go. Inviting us to trust, Beata calls on us to learn from our mistakes and grow and grow and grow. It’s a call to be Inspired… to Evolve !


Finally, This is a conversation for the soul. Beata affirms non-denominational spirituality, honors each individual’s unique connection to themselves, to nature and their spirituality. SHe also illuminates the interconnectedness of our mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Beata’s story invites us to trust, believe and have faith in the great mystery and blessing that is life whilst really forgiving (not forgetting) what does not serve you. In this conversation, we explore Beata Alfoldi’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of her success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story that reminds us that we are all here to live our dreams. Beata inspires a life of healing, transformation, and growth. Life is sacred and its upto us to honour it as best we can; and in doing so we may just be surprised by how much life really has to offer.

Cultivating Heart Wisdom with Gelong Thubten (Samten Meditation App) Cultivating Heart Wisdom with Gelong Thubten (Samten Meditation App) Sun, 29 Jul 2018 20:00:08 GMT 46:55 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=941 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226cb Live mindfully from the heart. In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we are inspired by Gelong Thubten. Thubten became a Buddhist monk 25 years ago at Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland, Europe’s oldest and largest Buddhist monastery. full Live mindfully from the heart. In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we are inspired by Gelong Thubten. Thubten became a Buddhist monk 25 years ago at Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland, Europe’s oldest and largest Buddhist monastery. He has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years in seclusion on a Scottish island. Thubten specializes in teaching mindfulness meditation internationally, in businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons, and addiction counseling centers. He works with major clients such as Google, LinkedIn, Lloyds Bank, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Siemens, Accenture, the NHS, Clifford Chance and Linklaters, and lectures at Facebook.

He does not get paid, all funds go to charity, for building meditation training centers to benefit many people. Thubten was the meditation consultant on the set of Marvel’s latest movie, Dr. Strange, where he trained Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in meditation techniques while they were filming. He has lectured on Buddhism and meditation at the universities of Oxford, Helsinki, and Cardiff, as well as for Mindvalley. He teaches in several schools and is often interviewed by the world’s media. He designs and delivers mindfulness programmes for 4th-year medical students at the National University of Ireland, and he has lectured at Parliament on the Channel Islands. He has co-authored a book on mindfulness with Ruby Wax and a neuroscientist: How To Be Human. He runs meditation centers throughout the U.K.

Gelong Thubten is a celebrated global expert on Mindfulness & Tibetan Meditation. In the episode of the Inspired Evolution, we explore Thubten’s journey to meditation. This is an especially surprising story as growing up he wasn’t really interested in meditation. In fact, he recounts that in his late teens he was actually quite wild, living the party lifestyle as an actor living in New-York. Burning the candle at both ends as he put it.

Unfortunately, his stressful lifestyle eventuated to a situation where he ended up quite ill for 6 months. It was during this time of illness that he started reading about meditation and the power of the mind. A friend of his recommended the Kagyu Samye Ling monastery in Scotland to deepen his meditation exploration for a short 12-month experience.

He was at Kagyu Samye Ling only 3 days before he become ordained as a monk. The commitment was initially for a full 12-months. However, as it would turn out, once he was there for 9 months he decided to commit to staying for longer. In his second year, he did his first 9-month isolated retreat. It was here that he decided to commit to monk-hood. A powerful decision yet an obvious one: to best serve himself and humanity. His decision being powered by the desire to live outside of his ego, which he identified as being unhealthy. Driven by compassion, he ended up taking life-vows committing to monk-hood and this way of life, for life. He joyfully remarks that his friends at this point though he’d lost the plot and that he was lucky that his family supported his decision. He’s now been a monk for over 25 years since he was 21 years old, on a life-long journey now towards perpetual growth and learning.

In this conversation, we talk about keeping mindfulness “now”, updated and modern. Specifically, how Thubten keeps mindfulness relevant for the 21st century and today’s society. How his unique approach blends ancient wisdom with modern challenges. Both Thubten and I are thrilled that neuroscience now complements ancient wisdom.

Thubten describes his passions to help people, not from a place of wanting to spread Buddhist philosophy, but to simply help people meditate and transform their minds. He started by supporting local prisons 25 years ago with mindfulness and meditation programs. Introducing mindfulness in a very pragmatic and needed situation.

He reflects on his own experience, traveling the world delivering talks, being on his phone and computer like the rest of society and how he’s living the fast-paced life with the rest of society so that his message remains relevant but also demonstrates how mindfulness can keep you calm, focused, stress-free and happy.

For Thubten, the exploration of human consciousness should remain relatable. We discuss the Mindy-Body connection and the intention and power behind isolation retreats: clearing outdated physical and mental patterns. No stranger to isolation, his longest isolation retreat experience lasted 4-years. Thubten describes how retreats are often misunderstood as leisurely. However, intensive work on the mind is actually undertaken to evolve your thoughts and emotions – the mission being to ultimately being less controlled by your thoughts and emotions. He reflects that this mission is a deep detox, one where he finds himself digesting his history and memories. An experience that he recounts is like brain surgery and ultimately both healing and transformative.

This conversation then deeply explores the theme and challenges of forgiveness and letting go. Thubten remarks that with the stresses of current society forgive is a hot topic and he shares his consultative approaches to forgiveness. Wisely, in this conversation, he eloquently describes how the process of forgiving others is the same as forgiving ourselves. He also remarks that on an international level as we’re increasingly more connected and there’s always dreadful news shared via mainstream media, it can be challenging to let go of transgressions and embrace forgiveness. He reminds us that it is consistently in our best interests to forgive in order to let go of the burden of toxic-rage and anger.

His first most important tip for Forgiveness is to stay Present. Not to deny your past or ignore it, your more present and connected to the present than the past. He poetically describes that all the cells in your body have transformed since 20 years ago, but somehow our memories continue to thrive and are connected to our consciousness which then calls us into the remembering the past – this mental phenomenon of attachment to a continuum that we are lead to believe is our Self. All our stories of Self are reinforced by our memories of the past. However, he asks us to imagine what its like to arrive fresh in every moment without the stories and the baggage of the past. Hence Gelong’s invitation to stay present as a powerful tool towards letting go and enabling forgiveness.

His second important tip for Forgiveness is to approach situations with greater Mindfulness (a more holistic/all-encompassing perspective). In this way, we can work on ‘forgiveness’ by actually thinking of the people or instances with more information and better understand, logically, the situation at hand (allowing us to subsequently free ourselves from being the victim of the situation).

A mindful perspective arriving when we surrender our ego and realize such global thoughts patterns such as “hurt people hurt people”. Implying that we are only inflicted upon by people because of their own sadness, anger, and ego. People act out of their own inner impulses and negativities, rarely, if-ever is they out to get another person, people merely end up in each other's way perhaps more due to circumstance than anything else.

Gelong invites us to reflect on when we’ve hurt people in our life and how we’ve never intended to actually hurt anyone. But only really end up hurting people as a reaction to our own own stresses, lack of mindfulness, anger, jealousy, etc. In fact, after we’ve acted out in this way, we ourselves feel that we wish we would have behaved better and that’s often the same case for our perpetrators… Extending our perspective and inviting greater mindfulness can, therefore, support us with forgiveness and letting go.

Whilst he’s definitely not advocating becoming a human door-mat, Thubten’s invitation is to accept the human condition. Softening the edges of the blame.

This conversation is then directed towards Compassion. Compassion is the center of mindfulness training. Mindfulness is not just about stress reduction and increasing focus and performance, although these are very desirable and natural side-effects. Compassion is about becoming more kind and loving to one’s Self and others.

Thubten invites us to reflect on “what is the definition of compassion?”

Especially because often compassion is confused with empathy. We may feel what other people are feeling and end up drowning in that same feeling too. However, this empathetic approach, Thubten illuminates is not the path of compassion.

Compassion is the meditation and work of freeing others from their suffering. Building that network in your brain and taking intentional action. Empathy, on the other hand, is feeling bad when someone feeling bad.

Compassion is like learning to swim, he remarks, so when someone is drowning – you may be able to support them – like a lifeguard. Empathy is synonymous with drowning with the other person – Thubten questions the good in this.

Fascinating research into the neuroscience of empathy vs. compassion has been conducted by Tanya Singer. Who explores the human brain when experiencing empathy and compassion.

Being empathetic can be very draining. Empathetic fatigue and burnout are common to those in the health sciences and healing professions. Empathy can motivate to a limited extent, however, the stress over the time of continually having to empathize fatigues and leaves people drained.

Hence, Thubten advocates compassion-based meditation practice. He calls it Unconditional Compassion with No Limits. He inspires us to reduce self-interest and open up the heart and developing the sense of Expanded Compassion that becomes more about ‘Who We Are’ rather than simply a process of feeling what comes and goes.

This process admittedly involves quite a deep process of dissolving one’s identity of and attachment to self. In fact, it is a radical process, rooted in ancient wisdom, which Thubten shares in this conversation.

Thubten admits that compassion challenges the ego and neurologically challenges our sense of self-preservation. He remarks that our minds falsely believe that if we're too kind to others and don’t uphold our boundaries – we fear that may lose some part of our self.

The fear is that if we’re totally in service we will dissolve. Cease to exist. “What about me?” asks the ego. This is a very understandable thing. But a powerful question that Thubten likes to ask is “When I come from a place of ego, does anyone really benefit?”

He remarks that the selfish side of a human is rather insatiable and that the ego is very rarely happy. Neither is the Self often happy and others are also not happy because of this insatiably demanding entity.

Thubten gives us the metaphor that being enslaved to your ego is like being enslaved to a boss that’s never happy with your work. It’s never good enough. Your ego want’s more. And it is commonplace that it is this entity that we describe as the Self.

In Buddhist philosophy the Self doesn’t even exist, its simply an illusion, Thubten joyfully remarks that Buddhist believe that we’re all interlinked and we’re all dependant on each other for existence. So let’s all help each other. Training in compassion benefits one’s self and others. It’s a win-win. And it feels the same as when we give someone a gift – so good.

This conversation then discusses the power of “Service”. Service, Thubten remarks is about living from a place of Love. He understands the fear that people have of living from a place of sacrifice, however, he remarks that you end up living a life that feels really good as your life benefits others and yourself. It’s a win-win situation.

Thubten invites us to continually live from the heart, with Love and Compassion. Modern approaches to mindfulness (and focussing on the breath) run the risk of not going deep enough (beyond scratching the surface with stress-management and achieving clarity/performance benefits). Mindfulness can really lead to greater happiness and an increased sense of purpose if you embrace it.

A simple way to implement greater compassion and love into your existing practice is simply by setting the intention to dedicate your practice (whether its meditation, music, yoga or anything similar) “to benefit yourself and others”. You can start and end your activities with this intention. So that you are directing the practice towards compassion training and cultivating greater selflessness.

Lastly, we explore what continues to inspire Thubten in carrying the potent wisdom of meditation and mindfulness across the globe. Thubten shares that he’s fuelled by the sense of a journey – of spiritual growth. Long-term spiritual development. He also has a deep sense of commitment to his vows. And is committed to others. A monk in his opinion is someone who as let go of self-interest in the service of others. He finds this way of life, serving others incredibly enriching.

He is inspired to introduce mindfulness to situations where you wouldn’t normally experience it, such as the work of the Inspired Evolution delivering Mindfulness to the Construction Industry. Thubten enjoys spreading mindfulness to places that spiritual practice is less expected such as prisons, movie sets, corporate environments, etc. Ultimately aiming, like the Inspired Evolution, to bring mindfulness to every situation. The feedback from those that have their lives enriched by mindfulness is incredibly rewarding.

The collective is awakening. Mindfulness practice is now mainstream, accepted in governments, education institutions and beyond. Thubten has been wearing his monk’s robes for over 25 years. He reflects on how many years ago he was seen somewhat as a freak, while now-a-days the attitude has completely changed. People now walk right up to him asking for help with meditation.

He believes that as the stress around the world is becoming increasingly more pronounced and diverse, the solution – meditation and mindfulness is also becoming ever more apparent, accessible and widespread.

This conversation is about peace and contentment. Gelong Thubten reminds us that everything is a choice. Especially how to feel. We can choose how we want to feel. We can choose differently about how to feel about our reality. Mindfulness activates the possibility to respond differently to our situations and circumstances. To have the ability to choose a response over a reaction is an incredibly profound aspect of meditation in my humble opinion.

We discuss the importance of mindfulness and meditation and all the ways that Gelong Thubten is actively promoting this work. Introducing his new Samten App (Meditation and Mindfulness Journey in an app). Resulting in the widespread promotion of meditation and mindfulness across the planet.

This conversation is one for the heart. It calls on us to live our most purposeful life, by being compassionate and living beyond our ideas of Self. Thubten’s story invites us to transform and cultivate a positive relationship with ourselves. In this conversation, we explore Gelong Thubten’s wisdom, habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story that reminds us that we are all here to live peacefully and content. Thubten inspires a life of healing, transformation, and growth. Life is a gift and it is up to us to honour it as best we can with our positive virtues greater than our self.

]]>
Live mindfully from the heart. In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we are inspired by Gelong Thubten. Thubten became a Buddhist monk 25 years ago at Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland, Europe’s oldest and largest Buddhist monastery. He has spent over six years in intensive meditation retreats, the longest of which was 4 years in seclusion on a Scottish island. Thubten specializes in teaching mindfulness meditation internationally, in businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, prisons, and addiction counseling centers. He works with major clients such as Google, LinkedIn, Lloyds Bank, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Siemens, Accenture, the NHS, Clifford Chance and Linklaters, and lectures at Facebook.

He does not get paid, all funds go to charity, for building meditation training centers to benefit many people. Thubten was the meditation consultant on the set of Marvel’s latest movie, Dr. Strange, where he trained Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton in meditation techniques while they were filming. He has lectured on Buddhism and meditation at the universities of Oxford, Helsinki, and Cardiff, as well as for Mindvalley. He teaches in several schools and is often interviewed by the world’s media. He designs and delivers mindfulness programmes for 4th-year medical students at the National University of Ireland, and he has lectured at Parliament on the Channel Islands. He has co-authored a book on mindfulness with Ruby Wax and a neuroscientist: How To Be Human. He runs meditation centers throughout the U.K.

Gelong Thubten is a celebrated global expert on Mindfulness & Tibetan Meditation. In the episode of the Inspired Evolution, we explore Thubten’s journey to meditation. This is an especially surprising story as growing up he wasn’t really interested in meditation. In fact, he recounts that in his late teens he was actually quite wild, living the party lifestyle as an actor living in New-York. Burning the candle at both ends as he put it.

Unfortunately, his stressful lifestyle eventuated to a situation where he ended up quite ill for 6 months. It was during this time of illness that he started reading about meditation and the power of the mind. A friend of his recommended the Kagyu Samye Ling monastery in Scotland to deepen his meditation exploration for a short 12-month experience.

He was at Kagyu Samye Ling only 3 days before he become ordained as a monk. The commitment was initially for a full 12-months. However, as it would turn out, once he was there for 9 months he decided to commit to staying for longer. In his second year, he did his first 9-month isolated retreat. It was here that he decided to commit to monk-hood. A powerful decision yet an obvious one: to best serve himself and humanity. His decision being powered by the desire to live outside of his ego, which he identified as being unhealthy. Driven by compassion, he ended up taking life-vows committing to monk-hood and this way of life, for life. He joyfully remarks that his friends at this point though he’d lost the plot and that he was lucky that his family supported his decision. He’s now been a monk for over 25 years since he was 21 years old, on a life-long journey now towards perpetual growth and learning.

In this conversation, we talk about keeping mindfulness “now”, updated and modern. Specifically, how Thubten keeps mindfulness relevant for the 21st century and today’s society. How his unique approach blends ancient wisdom with modern challenges. Both Thubten and I are thrilled that neuroscience now complements ancient wisdom.

Thubten describes his passions to help people, not from a place of wanting to spread Buddhist philosophy, but to simply help people meditate and transform their minds. He started by supporting local prisons 25 years ago with mindfulness and meditation programs. Introducing mindfulness in a very pragmatic and needed situation.

He reflects on his own experience, traveling the world delivering talks, being on his phone and computer like the rest of society and how he’s living the fast-paced life with the rest of society so that his message remains relevant but also demonstrates how mindfulness can keep you calm, focused, stress-free and happy.

For Thubten, the exploration of human consciousness should remain relatable. We discuss the Mindy-Body connection and the intention and power behind isolation retreats: clearing outdated physical and mental patterns. No stranger to isolation, his longest isolation retreat experience lasted 4-years. Thubten describes how retreats are often misunderstood as leisurely. However, intensive work on the mind is actually undertaken to evolve your thoughts and emotions – the mission being to ultimately being less controlled by your thoughts and emotions. He reflects that this mission is a deep detox, one where he finds himself digesting his history and memories. An experience that he recounts is like brain surgery and ultimately both healing and transformative.

This conversation then deeply explores the theme and challenges of forgiveness and letting go. Thubten remarks that with the stresses of current society forgive is a hot topic and he shares his consultative approaches to forgiveness. Wisely, in this conversation, he eloquently describes how the process of forgiving others is the same as forgiving ourselves. He also remarks that on an international level as we’re increasingly more connected and there’s always dreadful news shared via mainstream media, it can be challenging to let go of transgressions and embrace forgiveness. He reminds us that it is consistently in our best interests to forgive in order to let go of the burden of toxic-rage and anger.

His first most important tip for Forgiveness is to stay Present. Not to deny your past or ignore it, your more present and connected to the present than the past. He poetically describes that all the cells in your body have transformed since 20 years ago, but somehow our memories continue to thrive and are connected to our consciousness which then calls us into the remembering the past – this mental phenomenon of attachment to a continuum that we are lead to believe is our Self. All our stories of Self are reinforced by our memories of the past. However, he asks us to imagine what its like to arrive fresh in every moment without the stories and the baggage of the past. Hence Gelong’s invitation to stay present as a powerful tool towards letting go and enabling forgiveness.

His second important tip for Forgiveness is to approach situations with greater Mindfulness (a more holistic/all-encompassing perspective). In this way, we can work on ‘forgiveness’ by actually thinking of the people or instances with more information and better understand, logically, the situation at hand (allowing us to subsequently free ourselves from being the victim of the situation).

A mindful perspective arriving when we surrender our ego and realize such global thoughts patterns such as “hurt people hurt people”. Implying that we are only inflicted upon by people because of their own sadness, anger, and ego. People act out of their own inner impulses and negativities, rarely, if-ever is they out to get another person, people merely end up in each other's way perhaps more due to circumstance than anything else.

Gelong invites us to reflect on when we’ve hurt people in our life and how we’ve never intended to actually hurt anyone. But only really end up hurting people as a reaction to our own own stresses, lack of mindfulness, anger, jealousy, etc. In fact, after we’ve acted out in this way, we ourselves feel that we wish we would have behaved better and that’s often the same case for our perpetrators… Extending our perspective and inviting greater mindfulness can, therefore, support us with forgiveness and letting go.

Whilst he’s definitely not advocating becoming a human door-mat, Thubten’s invitation is to accept the human condition. Softening the edges of the blame.

This conversation is then directed towards Compassion. Compassion is the center of mindfulness training. Mindfulness is not just about stress reduction and increasing focus and performance, although these are very desirable and natural side-effects. Compassion is about becoming more kind and loving to one’s Self and others.

Thubten invites us to reflect on “what is the definition of compassion?”

Especially because often compassion is confused with empathy. We may feel what other people are feeling and end up drowning in that same feeling too. However, this empathetic approach, Thubten illuminates is not the path of compassion.

Compassion is the meditation and work of freeing others from their suffering. Building that network in your brain and taking intentional action. Empathy, on the other hand, is feeling bad when someone feeling bad.

Compassion is like learning to swim, he remarks, so when someone is drowning – you may be able to support them – like a lifeguard. Empathy is synonymous with drowning with the other person – Thubten questions the good in this.

Fascinating research into the neuroscience of empathy vs. compassion has been conducted by Tanya Singer. Who explores the human brain when experiencing empathy and compassion.

Being empathetic can be very draining. Empathetic fatigue and burnout are common to those in the health sciences and healing professions. Empathy can motivate to a limited extent, however, the stress over the time of continually having to empathize fatigues and leaves people drained.

Hence, Thubten advocates compassion-based meditation practice. He calls it Unconditional Compassion with No Limits. He inspires us to reduce self-interest and open up the heart and developing the sense of Expanded Compassion that becomes more about ‘Who We Are’ rather than simply a process of feeling what comes and goes.

This process admittedly involves quite a deep process of dissolving one’s identity of and attachment to self. In fact, it is a radical process, rooted in ancient wisdom, which Thubten shares in this conversation.

Thubten admits that compassion challenges the ego and neurologically challenges our sense of self-preservation. He remarks that our minds falsely believe that if we're too kind to others and don’t uphold our boundaries – we fear that may lose some part of our self.

The fear is that if we’re totally in service we will dissolve. Cease to exist. “What about me?” asks the ego. This is a very understandable thing. But a powerful question that Thubten likes to ask is “When I come from a place of ego, does anyone really benefit?”

He remarks that the selfish side of a human is rather insatiable and that the ego is very rarely happy. Neither is the Self often happy and others are also not happy because of this insatiably demanding entity.

Thubten gives us the metaphor that being enslaved to your ego is like being enslaved to a boss that’s never happy with your work. It’s never good enough. Your ego want’s more. And it is commonplace that it is this entity that we describe as the Self.

In Buddhist philosophy the Self doesn’t even exist, its simply an illusion, Thubten joyfully remarks that Buddhist believe that we’re all interlinked and we’re all dependant on each other for existence. So let’s all help each other. Training in compassion benefits one’s self and others. It’s a win-win. And it feels the same as when we give someone a gift – so good.

This conversation then discusses the power of “Service”. Service, Thubten remarks is about living from a place of Love. He understands the fear that people have of living from a place of sacrifice, however, he remarks that you end up living a life that feels really good as your life benefits others and yourself. It’s a win-win situation.

Thubten invites us to continually live from the heart, with Love and Compassion. Modern approaches to mindfulness (and focussing on the breath) run the risk of not going deep enough (beyond scratching the surface with stress-management and achieving clarity/performance benefits). Mindfulness can really lead to greater happiness and an increased sense of purpose if you embrace it.

A simple way to implement greater compassion and love into your existing practice is simply by setting the intention to dedicate your practice (whether its meditation, music, yoga or anything similar) “to benefit yourself and others”. You can start and end your activities with this intention. So that you are directing the practice towards compassion training and cultivating greater selflessness.

Lastly, we explore what continues to inspire Thubten in carrying the potent wisdom of meditation and mindfulness across the globe. Thubten shares that he’s fuelled by the sense of a journey – of spiritual growth. Long-term spiritual development. He also has a deep sense of commitment to his vows. And is committed to others. A monk in his opinion is someone who as let go of self-interest in the service of others. He finds this way of life, serving others incredibly enriching.

He is inspired to introduce mindfulness to situations where you wouldn’t normally experience it, such as the work of the Inspired Evolution delivering Mindfulness to the Construction Industry. Thubten enjoys spreading mindfulness to places that spiritual practice is less expected such as prisons, movie sets, corporate environments, etc. Ultimately aiming, like the Inspired Evolution, to bring mindfulness to every situation. The feedback from those that have their lives enriched by mindfulness is incredibly rewarding.

The collective is awakening. Mindfulness practice is now mainstream, accepted in governments, education institutions and beyond. Thubten has been wearing his monk’s robes for over 25 years. He reflects on how many years ago he was seen somewhat as a freak, while now-a-days the attitude has completely changed. People now walk right up to him asking for help with meditation.

He believes that as the stress around the world is becoming increasingly more pronounced and diverse, the solution – meditation and mindfulness is also becoming ever more apparent, accessible and widespread.

This conversation is about peace and contentment. Gelong Thubten reminds us that everything is a choice. Especially how to feel. We can choose how we want to feel. We can choose differently about how to feel about our reality. Mindfulness activates the possibility to respond differently to our situations and circumstances. To have the ability to choose a response over a reaction is an incredibly profound aspect of meditation in my humble opinion.

We discuss the importance of mindfulness and meditation and all the ways that Gelong Thubten is actively promoting this work. Introducing his new Samten App (Meditation and Mindfulness Journey in an app). Resulting in the widespread promotion of meditation and mindfulness across the planet.

This conversation is one for the heart. It calls on us to live our most purposeful life, by being compassionate and living beyond our ideas of Self.

Playful Prosperity with Jason Goldberg Playful Prosperity with Jason Goldberg Sun, 01 Jul 2018 14:43:55 GMT 41:08 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=924 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226ce All our dreams are on the other side of our fear.

In this episode of Inspired Evolution, international best-selling author, master coach and transformational speaker Jason Goldberg takes us on an entertaining journey and shares how we can achieve self-leadership, escape fear and achieve greater success and happiness in our lives and businesses.

As an International Award-Winning Speaker, Trainer, Facilitator, Author, Host & Coach, Jason's pillars of self-leadership are Consistency, Service, Mastery, and Playfulness. We dive deep into his approach: helping people all over the world live a life of Playful Mastery.

Help people open their minds to transform their lives and business. He maintains though that his main purpose in life is to help people pee their pants from laughter.

Discussing Jason's impressive past having been the CEO of a variety of companies, consulting for NASA, a past grounded in IT and Engineering. We explore where Jason's altered trajectory of “playfulness” came from. He starts by explaining Playfulness and what he shares as the “Spirit of Play”

He elaborates that Spirit of Play is greater than having obnoxious fun is about tapping into the spirit of Creativity. About Creativity, Jason shares:

“Creativity is Greater than Circumstance”

– Jason Goldberg

Creativity forms the foundation of a life of Playful Prosperity: Our innate ability to focus on resourcefulness of resources is the hack towards life mastery shares Jason.

He emphasizes that it's not about neglecting your current situation and burying your head in the sand, rather its about faces the challenges of life head-on and allowing your creativity to rise above the challenges, to play with the interpretations, to play with the expectations, to play with the resources we have at our disposal.

Jason vulnerably shares that he was always a joyful jokey type of person on the outside but a long time ago it used to be cultivated from a place of self-hatred. Growing up he was 135kg and he was really heavy his entire life and from a young age, he was ridiculed for being overweight so he had this overwhelming feeling of not-enoughness and not-fitting-in. However, he found it very natural to make people laugh. It became his mechanism to getting love and approval so that he could form an “enoughness” of self through approval of others. It can as a security blanket/defense mechanism.

He shares that although this would appear on the surface as being a hindrance, he sees this now as the foundations of some of his super-powers. Humour and the ability to relate with people joyfully and empathetically. Comedic prowess, joy, humor, coupled with empathy and these things are now at the center of his own Business.

If you feel like you do not have a genius-zone or super-power, Jason says you're just not remembering far enough back into your life (as a child or a teenager). Jason has found that looking back into your childhood past for: what you were praised for, got acknowledged for or got as a kid or whatever you got into trouble for in many cases. These are the things that are going to point you to your True Genius Zone.

Life is meant to be lived creatively and in Flow. Jason reminds us not to take life too seriously. If we look back on our lives, every step of the way, every meeting, every opportunity, every loss, every win lead us to exactly where we were meant to go. Inviting us to flow, Jason calls on us to live from our joy and grow and grow and grow. It's a call to be Inspired… to Evolve !

Finally, this is a conversation for our creative and joyous selves. Jason shows us that it is possible to live a life that is inspiringly joyous and prosperous. That wealth and success does not come in leiu of happiness but is actually a result of happiness. He also shares deeply on the interconnectedness on one's own self-transformation and the prowess of their business which is intrinsically coupled. Jason's story invites us to dig deep and find our own unique message and truth and to always be aligned to this in a harmonious and fun way. In this conversation, we explore Jason Goldberg’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story that reminds us that we all deserve to be happy and thriving. Jason inspires a life of healing, transformation, and growth.

Design Your Life with Chris Ventura Design Your Life with Chris Ventura Sun, 17 Jun 2018 21:00:26 GMT 1:03:50 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=908 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226cf Design your very own Life.

In this episode of Inspired Evolution, it feels almost as though we're in the movie inception. We're inspired by User Experience (UX) Designer and Co-Founder of Harness Projects: Chris Ventura to harness the power of design to not just learn better but to actually design a life of our highest potential.

Chris is an entrepreneur who is passionate about education and the role it has in forming the society around us. In 2017, he co-founded a project-based learning company called Harness Projects, to address the gaps he saw in traditional education. As well as a mechanism to leverage the power of the learning market to make social change. During the early part of his career, Chris describes himself as “your typical corporate wage slave”. Working long hours and expending enormous amounts of energy on projects with little meaningful impact. Around 2010, Chris' natural curiosity moved into the self-development field. Trying to integrate an emerging perspective of spirituality and mindfulness in an office environment devoid of much feeling. By 2015, he left that world and begin to integrate his corporate skills in product management, digital & user experience design with his well-being practices. Chris is a world-bridger, constantly moving between a world of commercialization, finances and corporate governance to a world of mindfulness, empathy, and impact. He believes there are 2 types of social activists. Those that work outside the system to raise awareness of the problems in the world and those that work within it to invent creative solutions and businesses so they evolve and take us forward in a positive way.

Setting up this innovative design company with his partner, Chris has also, on a meta-level, effectively designed his life as an entrepreneur. But Chris keeps it very real with us in this podcast, he reminds us that living life on your own terms isn't always glitz and glam, there's a lot that comes with that package that is not for the faint-hearted.

Chris considers Education as a fundamental pillar of society. It plays a vital role in shaping human behavior on an individual scale and ultimately on a macro, society-wide scale. It's important that people find the courage to invest in themselves to develop a foundation of strength & ability, so they can become of service to the society around them. Without this cycle of growth and sharing, our society is at risk of becoming increasingly isolationist and polarised. And so, we explore what UX design is all about and why Chris is so passionate about functional design and the mission/philosophy of Harness Projects.

Harness Projects partners with companies looking to make a positive social impact. Harness projects the recruits students passionate to learn through hands-on experience, through the art of doing, whilst being guided and mentored by some of Australia's best designers on real-world projects with real-world outcomes and successes!

Chris lets us in on his personal life sharing the moments when his life really started changing for the better: when he consciously started socializing with people that brought out the best in him, encouraged him to be more creative and live with greater authenticity. He also reflects on the fact that when he started this journey, he did not have “a single entrepreneurial bone in his body”. Which is inspiring considering his success with Harness Projects today! We explore Chris' personal value of compassion and how that's infused in the way of working as a designer that is creating outcomes for real-world people.

Chris reflects on the development of his “inner-world” through practices such as mindfulness and meditation and how that transformed his relationship with the “outer-world” which, when he was working for corporations was spent engaging his energy on stuff that excited or mattered to him directly.

The was a gap that Chris identified with his partner between education and the workplace. Chris also took into account his own learning experience from university and realized that there was a real need for him to develop Harness Projects. The leap of faith that Chris took to leave his corporate roles and invest in his own start-up not knowing the outcomes and often not even knowing what's next, he shares, is a muscle. The more he consciously exercises this “Trust” the easier it gets. Chris knew he wanted to leave his amazing corporate role and team because it was challenging or exciting him any more, even then it took him 8 months to “pull-the-plug”. And he did this without the security blanket of having anything a job to transition to. True courage to face the unknown.

He shares that when he leaped into the unknown the “universe caught him”. And even though he continually has to make similarly challenging decisions – he reflects that he can continue to cultivate that faith in being “caught” and supported. Chris believes there's a time to plan and then there's time to surrender your plans and trust what will come.

“The Universe Rewards Courage”

We passionately discuss purpose as a fundamental variable of health. Chris is super passionate about health and we explore how this triggered his journey into self-transformation which ultimately resulted in him living life on his own terms. As a by-product of which: Social circles changed, Living situations changed, Creative outlets changed, and more.

On the point of Health, Chris is an advocate of Balance.

“You're a product of your environment”

So get conscious of who you're spending your time with, where you're spending that time and what you're doing in your downtime…

“UX Your Life”

Enter the depth of the conversation that is uniquely available when sitting down to chat with Chris Ventura, a personal development buff who is passionate about lifestyle design and our user experience of life and poetically has co-founded Harness Projects a company which focuses on positive social change through upskilling people into UX skills.

Chris highlights the importance of Mentors. Mentors not just in his career, but also in the well-being space. We also discuss the importance of relationships and how vital connections are to supporting his journey.

“Education is and will be the most powerful tool for individual and social change, and we must do all that it takes to facilitate it.” – Shiv Nadar.

UX Design and Project Based Learning inspires Chris because not only does it open up: Great technical skills but even more importantly incredible human behavior skills which makes us great human beings to work with through things such as collaboration, communication, compassion, resilience, empathy, mindfulness, etc. These skills make work a truly enjoyable experience for all.

Chris reminds us that no experience or opportunity is wasted.

We have a deep conversation about Chris' relationship with his Business Partner, a relationship that he reflects is entirely complimentary as they both bring a unique set of attributes to the synergy. We discover how they found each other (they were working together in separate capacities) in the corporate workplace.

Chris generously shares the insights he learned from setting up his initial businesses that weren't as relatively successful as Harness Projects and how they were formative and supportive to his current success.

Surfing and the Ocean (Being in Nature) is a massive passion of Chris's and he loves the resilience, motivation, inspiration that it helps to keep him connected to. He does reflect that being his own boss and an entrepreneur does have its perks, as he can work from where he loves to surf. But also reminds us that it's not as romantic as you would like to think: you don't really get to switch off as your project is always firing for you. Hence the importance of investing yourself entirely into your passion.

Chris loves watching people grow and Harness Projects really fulfills him.

Chris' story is a reminder to all of us that there is more than the mundane. Chris that with Information Technologies where they're at today, living your very own lifestyle is now available to everyone and the only person standing in the way of that is “yourself”. Inviting us to trust, Chris calls on us to get empowered, take leaps of faith and grow and grow and grow. It's a call to be Inspired… to Evolve !

Finally, This is a conversation for the entrepreneurial fire within you. Chris affirms the rewarding and challenging nature of the beast that is taming your life. On this journey he calls on us to work both inwardly and outwardly to design the lifestyle we're more excited by, where we're challenged and excited. Chris champions balance between your inner and out developments and trust in the process of life. He also illuminates the values that make human interaction such a pleasurable experience – experiences which can be most conducive to learn in. Chris's story invites us to believe in our potentials and what is possible. In this conversation, we explore Chris Ventura’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story that reminds us that we are all here to live our potential. Chris inspires a life of alignment, passion, learning and growth. Life is a unique opportunity, a gift, for us to make the most of. So let's get creative and design the very life we would love to live.

Design your very own Life. In this episode of Inspired Evolution, it feels almost as though we're in the movie inception. We're inspired by User Experience (UX) Designer and Co-Founder of Harness Projects: Chris Ventura to harness the power of design to not just learn better but to actually design a life of our highest potential.

Chris is an entrepreneur who is passionate about education and the role it has in forming the society around us. In 2017, he co-founded a project-based learning company called Harness Projects, to address the gaps he saw in traditional education. As well as a mechanism to leverage the power of the learning market to make social change. During the early part of his career, Chris describes himself as “your typical corporate wage slave”. Working long hours and expending enormous amounts of energy on projects with little meaningful impact. Around 2010, Chris' natural curiosity moved into the self-development field. Trying to integrate an emerging perspective of spirituality and mindfulness in an office environment devoid of much feeling. By 2015, he left that world and begin to integrate his corporate skills in product management, digital & user experience design with his well-being practices. Chris is a world-bridger, constantly moving between a world of commercialization, finances and corporate governance to a world of mindfulness, empathy, and impact. He believes there are 2 types of social activists. Those that work outside the system to raise awareness of the problems in the world and those that work within it to invent creative solutions and businesses so they evolve and take us forward in a positive way.

Setting up this innovative design company with his partner, Chris has also, on a meta-level, effectively designed his life as an entrepreneur. But Chris keeps it very real with us in this podcast, he reminds us that living life on your own terms isn't always glitz and glam, there's a lot that comes with that package that is not for the faint-hearted.

Niall is not-so-affectionately known as the “Fear Coach”. Niall is a coach specializing in removing emotional constrictions to allow the authentic self to shine through. He has a deep passion for the freedom created after stepping into uncomfortable situations. He isn't just a preacher of this wisdom, he embodies it: From Professional Extreme Sports, Professional Kick-Boxing Fights, Standup Comedy to Sleeping on the Streets, Fasting, Silent Retreats and Pickup.

We start this discussion exploring Rites of Passages, Coming of Age Ceremonies and Initiations such as going Walkabout as exemplified by the Australia Indigenous. Reflecting on the lack of such cultural milestones in the modern western culture.

A deep conversation around depression emerges from men inhibited from approaching their emotions fear for men. We discuss the pride and ego strength of masculinity at face value compared to the true depth of strength that comes from getting vulnerable and emotional. There's a balance to be struck. Beginning with having the courage to be authentic and say “I'm scared” either way.

Niall describes his fascination with the physical fear he experiences from such extreme activities as bull-riding or professional fighting… In comparison to the fears and symptoms, he experienced when starting his businesses or public speaking or meditating for the first time. They feel exactly the same. One is genuinely life-threatening, the other is perceived as life-challenging yet is not really so.

We launch into a conversation on Mind-Body connection and embodying lasting wisdom. Niall Describes his technique of clearing fear and restrictions by:

1. Taking Responsibility for the ‘problem' and then,

2. Finding gratitude for the problem

Niall describes the importance and techniques of mental-visualization to cultivate a positive and success-oriented Mind-Body connection; plus the emotional or belief impedance we may have in the way. He highlights the wisdom that Transforming your life begins by Loving the parts of You, You Love the Least.

This conversation with the Fear Coach would be incomplete without discussing the Fear of Death. We discuss deeply Regret… Wow, a conversation I'm grateful to have had.

This conversation is raw and real: it encourages us to play the game of life “all out” beyond the limitations of fear. Niall’s story conveys that everyone is here to achieve something great and prompts us to question your relationship with yourself through your beliefs and emotions. In this conversation, we discuss Niall McInnes' habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story that reminds us that we are all capable of living our dreams.

Land Diving: Traditional origins of Bungie Jumping

Land diving (known in the local Sa Language as Gol and in Bislama Nanggol) is a ritual performed by the men of the southern part of Pentecost Island, Vanuata. The precursor to bungee jumping, men jump off wooden towers around 20 to 30 meters (66 to 98 ft) high, with two tree vines wrapped around the ankles. Land diving is done without any safety equipment, except for the vines. The tradition has developed into a tourist attraction. According to the Guinness World Records, the g-force experienced by those at their lowest point in the dive is the greatest experienced in the non-industrialized world by humans.

Masaai Warriors (Kenya) Right of Passage:

The Maasai of Kenya and Tanzania have a series of rites of passage that carry boys into manhood. Every 10 or 15 years a new warrior class will be initiated into the tribe. Boys between the ages of 10 and 20 are brought together from all across the country. Dozens of houses are built that will serve as the place of initiation. The night before the ceremony, the boys sleep outside in the forest. At dawn, they return to the little makeshift homestead for a day of singing and dancing. They drink a mixture of milk, cow’s blood, and alcohol and eat piles and piles of meat. After the festivities, boys who are of age (12-16) are ready to be circumcised.

The Emuratare is the most important ceremony in the life of a Maasai boy. Once circumcised, the tribe will consider him a man, warrior, and protector of his village. As the young man makes his way to where the elders will circumcise him, friends and family members will taunt the boy by saying things like “If you flinch, we will disown you.” The Maasai value bravery in their warriors and the circumcision is a boy’s first way to prove his courage even in the face of severe pain. It takes about 3 months for the circumcision to heal and during that time the young men wear black clothing and live in huts built by the women of the villiage. The Maasai boy is now warrior.

For the next 10 years the young men live together in an Emanyatta, or warriors camp. There they learn fighting, oratory, and animal husbandry. After 10 years, the young men take part in the Eunoto ceremony that marks the transition from warrior to senior warrior. After a Maasai has passed through the Eunoto, he can marry. The ceremony is basically several days of festivals, which ends with the initiate’s mother shaving his hair.

The Tao of Philosophy is a literary adaptation of talks selected to introduce the new “Love of Wisdom” series by Alan Watts to today's audiences.

The chapters provide rich examples of the way in which the philosophy of the Tao is as contemporary today as it was when it flourished in China thousands of years ago.

Jon Jones (UFC Champion): “All my butterflies are aligned'

“When you have butterflies and you’re feeling anxious and you have anxiety or are nervous, that’s when you’re most powerful… A lot of people, instead of honing this power and using it, they allow it to just consume them. There’s another quote that says, ‘A big challenge, a big pressure is like a fire, it’s like a raging fire. Either you can allow this fire to consume you and just take you over completely, or you can gain control of this fire and harness it and you blow it right at your opponent, Dragonball Z style.’ That’s what I’m trying to do, trying to get my emotions under control and use this adrenaline to my advantage.”

Land Diving: Traditional origins of Bungie Jumping

Land diving (known in the local Sa Language as Gol and in Bislama Nanggol) is a ritual performed by the men of the southern part of Pentecost Island, Vanuata. The precursor to bungee jumping, men jump off wooden towers around 20 to 30 meters (66 to 98 ft) high, with two tree vines wrapped around the ankles. Land diving is done without any safety equipment, except for the vines. The tradition has developed into a tourist attraction. According to the Guinness World Records, the g-force experienced by those at their lowest point in the dive is the greatest experienced in the non-industrialized world by humans.

Masaai Warriors (Kenya) Right of Passage:

The Maasai of Kenya and Tanzania have a series of rites of passage that carry boys into manhood. Every 10 or 15 years a new warrior class will be initiated into the tribe. Boys between the ages of 10 and 20 are brought together from all across the country. Dozens of houses are built that will serve as the place of initiation. The night before the ceremony, the boys sleep outside in the forest. At dawn, they return to the little makeshift homestead for a day of singing and dancing. They drink a mixture of milk, cow’s blood, and alcohol and eat piles and piles of meat. After the festivities, boys who are of age (12-16) are ready to be circumcised.

The Emuratare is the most important ceremony in the life of a Maasai boy. Once circumcised, the tribe will consider him a man, warrior, and protector of his village. As the young man makes his way to where the elders will circumcise him, friends and family members will taunt the boy by saying things like “If you flinch, we will disown you.” The Maasai value bravery in their warriors and the circumcision is a boy’s first way to prove his courage even in the face of severe pain. It takes about 3 months for the circumcision to heal and during that time the young men wear black clothing and live in huts built by the women of the villiage. The Maasai boy is now warrior.

For the next 10 years the young men live together in an Emanyatta, or warriors camp. There they learn fighting, oratory, and animal husbandry. After 10 years, the young men take part in the Eunoto ceremony that marks the transition from warrior to senior warrior. After a Maasai has passed through the Eunoto, he can marry. The ceremony is basically several days of festivals, which ends with the initiate’s mother shaving his hair.

Alan Watts (Philosopher): Tao of Philosophy (Alan Watts Love Of Wisdom)

The Tao of Philosophy is a literary adaptation of talks selected to introduce the new “Love of Wisdom” series by Alan Watts to today's audiences.

The chapters provide rich examples of the way in which the philosophy of the Tao is as contemporary today as it was when it flourished in China thousands of years ago.

Perhaps most significantly, these selections offer modern society a clearer understanding of what it will take for a successful reintegration of humans in nature.

Jon Jones (UFC Champion): “All my butterflies are aligned'

“When you have butterflies and you’re feeling anxious and you have anxiety or are nervous, that’s when you’re most powerful… A lot of people, instead of honing this power and using it, they allow it to just consume them. There’s another quote that says, ‘A big challenge, a big pressure is like a fire, it’s like a raging fire. Either you can allow this fire to consume you and just take you over completely, or you can gain control of this fire and harness it and you blow it right at your opponent, Dragonball Z style.’ That’s what I’m trying to do, trying to get my emotions under control and use this adrenaline to my advantage.”

Steph is a yoga practitioner and educator who has a deep passion for holistic wellness, yoga, meditation, mindfulness and the healing arts. Steph is unapologetically herself and inspires others to be the same; to find the strength and courage to be free, to be you.

Steph is committed to helping people explore the ways in which they can reconnect with their innate joy and freedom. Steph’s yoga work is not just about connecting people to their bodies, but connecting people back to their truly wacky, unique and vibrant self.

We discuss modern lifestyles, and reasons to become distracted and disconnected from self and others in this currently rather complicated state of the world.

Steph reminds us to be ourselves above all else, to keep growing in those areas which feel a little bit scary and a little bit confronting, and to move into spaces of new growth as they become clearer. This in-turn pulls us to stay Creative and to think outside the box, following threads of creativity as they arise. In Steph’s example this includes exploring new cities, creating new content and saying yes to professional endeavours which serve to expand her.

And to ensure that we don’t get into a rut with it all, Steph’s vibe is a great reminder to keep it fun! Calling for us to get out into nature and have a play, life doesn’t have to be so serious! And most importantly, to keep doing the things you love.

Steph’ story highlights how to live in a joyful way: For Steph, following her bliss comes as a practice, it’s a feeling of being connected to spirit and knowing when spirit talks.

This conversation about Health and Purpose is extremely valuable, highlighting the importance of health and the inherent wisdom latent within, our destiny to live life to the fullest. In this conversation, we discuss Steph Baron’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of her success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about getting totally conscious and connected to source wisdom and honouring our intuition which is experienced through our emotions. All so that you can go out there and embrace life, allowing for life to embrace you – the amazing be-ing that you really are!

This is one amazing conversation and hence why it's longer than every other Inspired Evolution episode.

We dance through the deepest philosophies of self, society, the universe, the body, the mind, the spirit, the emotions, the health, the wellbeing, connections and disconnections, the trauma…

We unravel Stress and Anxiety through exploring:

Societal Values.

Culture.

War & Peace.

Connection.

Nature.

Masculinity.

Vulnerability.

Courage.

Newtonian vs Quantum Physics.

Metabolising Trauma.

Quantum Experiments.

Bells Theorum.

Mysticism.

Piezio-Electric Effect.

Beyond Time.

Beyond Space.

Passionated Space.

Love and ESP.

Reality and it's Precursors.

Energetic Probabilities.

Existence.

Biocentricism.

Dopamine.

Happiness.

Pleasure.

Material Reality.

Healing.

And so so much more.

Ultimately… Guiding ourselves back to reconnecting with Nature.

Tristan reminds us that Human connection is a biological imperative. Connecting with Tristan in this episode poetically reflects this: as we discuss the deepest crevices, and simultaneously the cutting-edge innovative insights, of all things Life and Death and how these are all woven together.

We are infinite and in certain ways we've bound ourselves.

Tristan presents an opportunity to heal.

He is passionate about reminding people, that the human capacity for healing is limitless. Tristan helps to open minds to how many natural super abilities; we all possess to enhance our life that has been squashed out of the mainstream belief system by reductionist dogma and disempowerment. Tune in as we explore the wisdom Tristan shares through his unique story and vast experience. We get an insight into his exclusive treatments, seminars, and workshops which are primarily focused on clearing trauma and he shares why this is so important to all of us. Trauma is the biggest cause of ill health in our world because it often will permanently change the body’s physiology, emotions, and spiritual outlook if not released. Much of modern medicine looks at putting a ‘band-aid effect’ over the current effect of trauma as opposed to clearing it, back at the creation point.

Show notes invariably will never do this episode justice, tune in and Get Inspired !

We discuss how death defines life. We explore what a gift crisis can be in one’s life. And how nature plays a vital role as you yourself are nature – you are the universe witnessing itself. We talk at length about health and the inner workings of one's self and how that reflects one's relationship with the humanity and the planet.

This conversation is extremely valuable it forces us to go deep and reminds us of our true potential as verified through both science and mysticism. Tristan’s story conveys that life is truly remarkable and encourages us to make the most of this wonder. In this conversation, we discuss Tristan’s philosophies and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about embracing one's self !

Paul, is a serial entrepreneur. It’s in his wiring, and he’s passionate about doing business consciously. He loves systems! full In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the conscious business creative, Paul Benson. Paul, is a serial entrepreneur. It’s in his wiring, and he’s passionate about doing business consciously. He loves systems! He’s had several multi-million dollars a year businesses. With a background in somatic psychology, he decided that business was much more interesting and has had a successful contracting business for 30 years. He’s also committed to conscious dancing, hiking, and living life agelessly along with his partner Carol. Carol and Paul wrote together the highly-acclaimed book, “5 Steps to Thrive: Reveal Any Crisis as Opportunity,”

Paul Benson has a higher purpose in mind. And between himself and his partner, Carol: the two of them have done pretty much every single personal growth training and studied with many teachers and guru types. A real journey of the unknown for sure! Along the way, Paul has lost multi-million dollar businesses, a home, faced bankruptcy, wrote a book and basically rose from the ashes when the rug was pulled out from under him in 2009.

Their mission is to curate across generations, genders and cultural diversity the best of the personal growth systems to cut through all the stuck mindsets and grow from the inside out to have a fantastic work-life balance. Paul and his partner Carol in their journey together have not only had a blast and want to “pinch themselves” daily about how much fun they have, but have become masterful at mindset shifting, resiliency crafting and opportunity creation.

Their business, “It Doesn’t Feel Like Work,” is focused on bringing in evolutionary conscious leadership to shift the way the business is done. Doing business “the old way” isn’t working as well any longer.

In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the conscious business creative, Paul Benson. Paul, is a serial entrepreneur. It’s in his wiring, and he’s passionate about doing business consciously. He loves systems! He’s had several multi-million dollars a year businesses. With a background in somatic psychology, he decided that business was much more interesting and has had a successful contracting business for 30 years. He’s also committed to conscious dancing, hiking, and living life agelessly along with his partner Carol. Carol and Paul wrote together the highly-acclaimed book, “5 Steps to Thrive: Reveal Any Crisis as Opportunity,”

Paul Benson has a higher purpose in mind. And between himself and his partner, Carol: the two of them have done pretty much every single personal growth training and studied with many teachers and guru types. A real journey of the unknown for sure! Along the way, Paul has lost multi-million dollar businesses, a home, faced bankruptcy, wrote a book and basically rose from the ashes when the rug was pulled out from under him in 2009.

Their mission is to curate across generations, genders and cultural diversity the best of the personal growth systems to cut through all the stuck mindsets and grow from the inside out to have a fantastic work-life balance. Paul and his partner Carol in their journey together have not only had a blast and want to “pinch themselves” daily about how much fun they have, but have become masterful at mindset shifting, resiliency crafting and opportunity creation.

Their business, “It Doesn’t Feel Like Work,” is focused on bringing in evolutionary conscious leadership to shift the way the business is done. Doing business “the old way” isn’t working as well any longer. Via consulting and training, Paul shows people in business how to build new perspectives in work-life balance with their proven 9-point system. Think of it as Personal Growth meets Business with tangible systems!

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you the possibilities of upgrading stale paradigms when it comes to what we believe about money, business, and finance.

Connect Fully with Your Life: Clarity and Harmony through Yoga with Chris Dixon Connect Fully with Your Life: Clarity and Harmony through Yoga with Chris Dixon Sun, 14 Jan 2018 05:02:30 GMT 1:09:50 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=392 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226d9 In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the inspiring Chris Dixon. Chris Dixon is a yoga practitioner and educator from Southern California. He has a deep passion for yoga, meditation, mindfulness and the healing arts. As a teacher, full In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the inspiring Chris Dixon. Chris Dixon is a yoga practitioner and educator from Southern California. He has a deep passion for yoga, meditation, mindfulness and the healing arts. As a teacher, Chris aims to inspire students to discover their own practice; to find strength and space in the body, as well as clarity of heart and mind. Chris believes in a well-rounded, balanced yoga lifestyle and through his teaching wants techniques to connect with life more fully. Chris has studied and taught extensively in the United States, Australia, India, and Thailand, and is now based in here in Melbourne.

Chris is committed to helping people explore the ways we can remember how to connect to more harmony and clarity in our lives. Specifically, the method He's working with is the yoga practice, commonly misunderstood nowadays as a strength/flexibility experience, but more contextually is an ancient science of the mind/psychology. The heart of the practice is harmonizing the energies of the body to create clarity of mind and ultimately is a spiritual practice.

Chris reflects that the: Modern lifestyle is full of constant noise, reasons to become distracted / disconnected from ourselves and others, and the world is complicated. For this reason, no one goes unaffected, and personal tools to balance, center, and hone our clarity becomes more and more important. Similarly, in fast-paced societies, its also important to develop methods to slow down and rest as well, with practices like meditation or yin yoga.

A beautifully simple topic of conversation that emerged in this podcast is the idea of: Low-Tech High-Tech.

For example, breathing is a simple low tech exercise that has deep profound high-tech benefits.

We also explore: Yoga as Clarity and returning to the essence of what the thing of action or contemplation really is.

We also discuss the grassroots functional starting point: Mind-Body Connection.

Chris shares his philosophy and insight on the Breath as a Leader and Creating a SHIFT: ‘Prana-ayama'.

We talk deeply about life through: Patterns, Behaviors, Transformation and ultimately Letting Go

A message that Chris continues to promote is: Daily Consistency with the Yoga Lifestyle

Chris reminds us to keep with the edge. Keep growing in to those areas that feel a little bit scary and a little bit confronting and move into spaces of new growth as they become clear

This in-turn pulls us to stay Creative. Thinking outside the box and following threads of creativity. In Chris' example: This includes writing a book, making an album for yoga classes (Chris' music is amazing), and painting /creating for fun.

And to ensure that we dont get into a rut with it all, Chris calls us to: Get out into nature and play! And keep doing the things you love.

Chris' story highlights the spiritual path: For Chris, this comes as a practice or feeling of being connected to spirit, ways of accessing connection to spirit and experiencing spirit within. This can be as simple as breathing, or being in nature and feeling awe at its beauty. Chris says that Spirit can be defined as energy, life force, subtle forces, nature, life, or the universal intelligence that moves through all of us.

This conversation is about Health and Purpose is extremely valuable it shows you the importance of health and the inherent wisdom latent within one's self, yearning to live to the fullest.

Live your Dream: Find Salvation through Imagination with Koky Saly Live your Dream: Find Salvation through Imagination with Koky Saly Sun, 31 Dec 2017 05:19:45 GMT 59:44 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=367 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226db In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome inspirationally imaginative-creative Koky Saly. A Brother, A Promise-Keeper and Founder of The Beekeeper Parade (a business founded to inspire change) and soon to be Author, In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome inspirationally imaginative-creative Koky Saly. A Brother, A Promise-Keeper and Founder of The Beekeeper Parade (a business founded to inspire change) and soon to be Author, he also founded a charity in Cambodia called BabyTree Projects which is responsible for establishing multiple schools in Cambodia which are now supported by Koky's Beekeeper Parade business endeavor. Koky is a fellow Student of Life. The Beekeeper Parade is a social enterprise that upcycles textile waste by re-creating it into beautiful backpacks and bags. Through the sale of every backpack, a child in Cambodia is given access to quality education in one of the 5 schools he has set up.

He shares deeply his four fundamental observations that define him and have enabled him to find happiness (transcending his tribulations).
1.  Imagination.
2. Superpowers: (Believing you can change the world through kindness and the courage of taking massive action driven by that belief).
3. Fearlessness (and true courage).
4. Promises.

Woven throughout this conversation we also explore Kindness, Courage, Integrity, and Perseverance without complaint.

BeeKeeper Parade was created to help Koky fund the education of children attending the five schools he had already built in Cambodia through a charity organization he set-up in 2007 called BabyTree Projects. Initially, it was called Boy & Bee. It was about a 10 year old boy who thought he could change the world. But learned that he couldn't until he worked with his best friend the Bee (which was his sister's role). It was about friendship, teamwork and an unwavering belief in yourself.

The name was changed to BeeKeeper after his sister passed away from cancer. She left him her car in her will, with instructions to sell it and use the proceeds to make sure that the business Boy & Bee would be created, and inspire change in the world. Coping with the loss of his sister and the grief and depression that came with it has been his greatest challenge.

That boy in the original project didn't exist anymore. He had changed. In the last months of his sister's life, he spent every day at the hospital helping take care of her. He felt like he was her carer and her keeper. Since she was the Bee in the original title and he now was her keeper, he changed the title to BeeKeeper.

Even though they are currently focused on products, BeeKeeper is not limited to anything but Imagination which Koky shares deeply upon in this episode of the Inspired Evolution. They have created backpacks, but also an event called The Great Tuk Tuk Rally. He's also in the middle of finalizing his novel. The common thread through all of these projects is that they are meant to inspire change in the world.

Koky started his business with his heart and soul. He made a promise to himself that I would make this project happen. And he continues to honor that promise. Being an intent Promise Keeper – Promises are another very deep conversation that we explore in this episode of the Inspired Evolution.

Koky reminds us to listen to our inner wisdom and the innate calling of your own self “That the one voice you should listen to above anyone else is your own.”

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you the importance of imagination and integrity. Koky’s story is one that reflects that everyone has deep innate wisdom waiting inside themselves to be explored and accessed to improve their relationship with themselves and those around them. In this conversation, we discuss Koky Saly’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about fully embracing your imagination and your true self! All this so that you can go out there and be the change you wish to see in the world!

Until the moment where she came to a point in her life and thought: “Is this all right? Mabel was a career woman: She worked long hours, had great responsibility
and was one of the high potentials of the fast, listed company where she worked.

Until the moment where she came to a point in her life and thought:
“Is this all right? Is this the life I always dreamed of?
Is this my maximum contribution to a better and better world?
What now?
Even more of everything? Make even more money?
Is this really the most beautiful life I can live and do I use all of my talents? ”

Then followed a journey in personal growth.
Questions like “what do I want in my work” made way for “what do I want in my life”.

She discovered that for years she had lived on our male energy:
narrow focused, result-oriented action, outward and performance oriented.
This had brought her a lot and delivered a nice career, but on the other side,
her feminine side, had received little attention.
This she explains is her creativity, intuition, thinking for the common interest.

In this side where she get's the fuel for her fire now !

She started with her female strength. By meditating, doing yoga, looking for silence,
setting herself up to be vulnerable. She allowed spirituality in her life.

She and her business partner then started with their story, their Big Why and their female strength.
And they saw that we are not the only women with struggles, uncertainties and doubts.
They found out that people everywhere constantly make themselves smaller for fear
of the unprecedented possibilities that life offers and the power that exists within us.

And when she discovered that, a new energy was released. A new ambition !
The ambition to go for what remains which is what she and her business partner really believe in !
To make the world more beautiful ! And they found this loft ambition to be within their reach.

Step by step they ave succeeded in taking profound leadership and surrendering to their natural ambition.
To create a life in which they are truly happy. Their male and female energies in balance. Work / Life aligned.

A life in which they can help as many other women as possible !

All their years of personal and spiritual growth, networking, insights, fun, pitfalls, knowledge and experience come together
in their company : The New Business Women.

They have set up a warm and welcoming company, where they share real stories and where women can share their stories.

They have built a a community where women feel recognition and connection and in which they can fully develop their greatness.
All this so that empowered women will then use their passions and talents to create the life they have always dreamed of !

Together they say: Together this is the way we make the world better !

In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the humble yet fierce Marko Petrovic… Marko is a Holistic Coach, Entrepreneur, Author and International Speaker. He supports high-performing women and men to supercharge their lives using his very simple approach the: Calibrate Method. A combination of the latest breakthrough research with age-old wisdom from ancient civilizations that challenge mainstream thinking to get fast sustainable momentum. In the background, Marko also builds and supports businesses, events and community gatherings that help bring humanity together in the industries of health education, human development, and organic agriculture.

He shares his insight that health is individual for everyone. No two people are the same. We explore the distinct difference between Health and Fitness. Fitness is superficial. Health is innate. Health is from within. Your Health is your Own.

We discuss Dis-Ease. Literally just how being healthy is about being at Ease. Anything putting you out of ease – physical, emotional, mental or spiritual gives way to Dis-Ease. Which, god forbid, gives way to Disease. Again, on the Inspired Evolution which appears as a continual theme – we unpack he crisis/dis-ease presents itself as a warning/catalyst for change towards the better.

We discuss the health wisdom from Ancient Cultures (Ayurveda, Chinese Herbalism, Taoist, etc.) that inspire and inform Marko's potent international offerings. He explains why and how he refers to this wisdom as the domain of health has been mapped out to such simple understandings based on time-immemorial understandings of Nature. He marvels at how this understanding is more profound than the current day modern mainstream fitness paradigms; although the instruments to measure and assess health and science today appear to far superior than in ancient times.

Naturally, we then discuss living in alignment with Nature, why and how. Marko is a trans-generational Bee-keeper and owns, manages, upkeeps, runs an organic farm that also welcomes regular health retreats. So we also deeply discuss permaculture and agriculture.

Marko also embellishes that health is a never-ending journey and continually evolves as we evolve. Marko reflects on the mirrors of going deep on his journey of health and how that reflects, catalyzes and accompanies one's deep spiritual journey. Spirituality and Wellness are Woven. Both being individual and unique to each person.

This conversation is extremely valuable it emphasizes the key role health plays in supporting you to “live your gifts”. Marko’s story is one that reflects that everyone's health and spiritual journey are unique. We also go deep into understanding living in alignment with nature, from the elements, to our plate, from the farm and beyond… In this conversation, we discuss Marko Petrovic’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about defining, embracing and finding your own conscious paradigm of health so that you can go out there and live the gifts that life has innately bestowed upon you… The gifts the world needs!

In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the Inspiring Edwin Konjin… founder of Living with Sense, AHA Structured Water, Celebrated Health Coach, Flow State (Life) Coach, NLP practitioner and most inspiringly one of the deepest self-driven researchers of health and life. Edwin share's his philosophies on “thinking healthy” and how that results in Living with Sense (living through our senses and innate (wisdom) feedback). On the topic of healthy thoughts, we discuss living congruently with our thoughts and the resultant, subsequent, consequent “Flow States” that enrich life.

So how is this related to diet? Tune in and find out as we discuss Plant Based Wholefoods and Structured Water in the pursuit of understanding health and diet.

We pick apart how our thoughts and our diet are predominantly a result of our upbringing, our belief systems, our values. All of which we don't often question and perhaps even if we do, we end up delusional. Simply put, our interaction with food and hydration is the most accessible window of opportunity to access our understanding towards our personal relationship with life. We can reflect on our diet to reflect of life and better learn to understand where our attention goes.

Gratefully, Edwin has had some very very real and deep conversations with himself about both health and life and in this Inspired Evolution conversation, we get to reap the benefits as Edwin share his nuggets of wisdom and insight with us.

We discuss the importance of health; not just for our perception of our-self but more importantly our relationship with our-self and our relationship with our-life. Far from conventional: We explore how incredible health is formed in alignment with natural ways of eating and fasting and coming into alignment with nature.

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you the importance of health and how simple it can really be to upgrade your wellbeing. Edwin's story is one that reflects that everyone has deep innate wisdom waiting inside themselves to be explored and accessed to improve their relationship with themselves and their life. In this conversation, we discuss Edwin Konjin’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about getting totally conscious about your thinking and your diet and therefore of life. All this so that you can go out there and embrace life and allow life to embrace you –  the amazing be-ing you really are!

Unlock your Infinite Potential: Here’s an Opportunity to Heal with Tristan Bray Unlock your Infinite Potential: Here’s an Opportunity to Heal with Tristan Bray Sat, 28 Oct 2017 13:52:01 GMT 2:05:10 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=269 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226e4 In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we go real deep with Tristan Bray… It’s hard not to dive all the way in when you’re talking to someone who is a Regression Therapist most passionate about  Psychotherapy, Meditation, Quantum Healing, In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we go real deep with Tristan Bray… It's hard not to dive all the way in when you're talking to someone who is a Regression Therapist most passionate about  Psychotherapy, Meditation, Quantum Healing, Cell Biology, Epigenetics, Kinesiology, Psychopharmacology, Sexual Health, Diet, Detox, Philosophy, Metaphysics, Taoism, Chi Gung, Kung Fu and Modern Medical Science. This is one amazing conversation and hence why it's longer than every other Inspired Evolution episode.

We dance through the deepest philosophies of self, the universe, the body, the mind, the spirit, the emotions, the health, the wellbeing, connections and disconnections, the trauma…
We unravel Stress and Anxiety through exploring:

Competition.
Neurolinguistics.
Epigenetics.
Quantum Physics.
Mysticism.
Neuroscience and Mirror Neurons.
Science.
Social Media.
Brain Chemistry.
Social Dynamics.
Psychology of Choice.
Sexuality.
Addiction.
And so so much more.

Ultimately… Guiding ourselves back to reconnecting with Nature.

Tristan reminds us that Human connection is a biological imperative. Connecting with Tristan in this episode poetically reflects this: as we discuss the deepest crevices, and simultaneously the cutting-edge innovative insights, of all things Life and Death and how these are all woven together.
We are infinite and in certain ways we've bound ourselves.
Tristan presents an opportunity to heal.

He is passionate about reminding people, that the human capacity for healing is limitless. Tristan helps to open minds to how many natural super abilities; we all possess to enhance our life that has been squashed out of the mainstream belief system by reductionist dogma and disempowerment. Tune in as we explore the wisdom Tristan shares through his unique story and vast experience. We get an insight into his exclusive treatments, seminars, and workshops which are primarily focused on clearing trauma and he shares why this is so important to all of us. Trauma is the biggest cause of ill health in our world because it often will permanently change the body’s physiology, emotions, and spiritual outlook if not released. Much of modern medicine looks at putting a ‘band-aid effect’ over the current effect of trauma as opposed to clearing it, back at the creation point.

Show notes invariably will never do this episode justice, tune in and Get Inspired !

We discuss how death defines life. We explore what a gift crisis can be in one’s life. And how nature plays a vital role as you yourself are nature – you are the universe witnessing itself. We talk at length about health and the inner workings of one's self and how that reflects one's relationship with the humanity and the planet.

This conversation is extremely valuable it forces us to go deep and reminds us of our true potential as verified through both science and mysticism. Tristan’s story conveys that life is truly remarkable and encourages us to make the most of this wonder. In this conversation, we discuss Tristan’s philosophies and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about embracing one's self !

The Conscious Business Movement: The “Life Cykel” Blue Economy with Ryan Creed The Conscious Business Movement: The “Life Cykel” Blue Economy with Ryan Creed Sat, 21 Oct 2017 13:15:45 GMT 50:31 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=259 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226e5 In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the Ingenious Ryan Creed… co-founder of Life Cykel.

In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we welcome the Ingenious Ryan Creed… co-founder of Life Cykel. Connecting people to their food by encouraging growing local and upcycling their waste to grow amazing super products and setting up a business around all of this with the clear intention to spread the power of this conscious initiative globally. Life Cykel now has coffee waste mushroom farms in Fremantle, Noosa, Byron Bay and is driving innovation and revolutionizing mainstream thinking.

Life Cykel sells microgreens, vegan protein, oyster mushrooms, and my favorite: medicinal (Traditional Chinese Herbalism) mushrooms. These tonics herbs are at the forefront of profound ancient paradigms of health. Assisting in the supplementation protocols of Taoist philosophy in supporting their three most values facests of health Jing, Qi and Shen.

Ryan and Julian at Life Cykle grow these superfoods and supplements from coffee grind wastes which would otherwise end up in a landfill and decomposing and creating toxic gases.

Now they're up-cykled to grow superfoods and if that wasn't impressive enough, we discuss at length the importance of setting up a business around all of this to extend this positivity towards its rightful global reach. This is The Blue Economy at it's finest ! Supporting Local Jobs, Support Local Environments and Individual and Planet health, supported by the advancement and innovation of conscious business models.

The message that if: Your idea is powerful and worth spreading, it doesn't just deserve to become a business – it needs to become a business to get the traction it needs for the betterment of individuals and the planet.

The Life Cykel team is Solid in their Intention. And in doing so is promoting growing local and in doing so is connecting city dwellers, rural and remote individuals and school children to their food. These are diverse communities and through the power of multiple successful and impressive crowd-funding campaigns, Life Cykel has again and again demonstrated: the power of community which naturally avails itself to back a powerful idea that can help move a society forward.

We discuss the importance of contribution to humanity and the planet and why it is important to contribute to something bigger than one's own self. We explore what an amazing time it is now where we have the advancements in technology and understanding to be able to implement such incredible initiatives such as the blue economy whereby continual upcycling is fast becoming reality. And we explore Ryan's non-conventional entrepreneurial journey, crowd-funding campaigns, his epic business partnership with Julian Mitchell and his mission.

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you what you can accomplish if you get determined and take massive action. The power of community that stands behind positive intentions and visions. Ryan’s story conveys that everyone is here to achieve/deliver something different and makes us question everything we’ve thought about mainstream models of success and that success' direct relationship to the planet. In this conversation, we discuss Ryan Creed’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about getting totally conscious about the entire Life Cykel of the process of life and one's role in it and taking inspired action to better humanity and the planet… All in one fell swoop !

The Good People Effect with Michael Barticel The Good People Effect with Michael Barticel Sat, 14 Oct 2017 00:30:50 GMT 1:08:32 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=220 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226e6
The GOOD PEOPLE EFFECT !!! CREATIVITY ! ADVENTURE ! PURPOSE !!!

Michael is the host of the podcast THE GOOD PEOPLE EFFECT !
He won the coveted Cannes Lion for Creativity in 2016 for his work on You're Accepted !
He is a Creativity Enthusiast, Adventure Seeker and Well-Being Advocate !!!

You know that old proverb “You only grow by surrounding yourself with the right people”? Well, Identical to the Inspired Evolution – The Good People Effect  http://goodpeopleeffect.com/ focuses on surrounding you with those good people, to motivate and inspire your sense of adventure, creativity, health, well-being and purpose in life!

Michael realised that not everyone has access to the right people right now, so Michael decided to find them, and bring them to listeners in a creative way, so people can explore their interesting inner workings together.

Michael shares great vibes and incredible insights from his which features in-depth conversations with inspirational real people about personal development. Podcasting we touch on useful tips on improving your health, nutrition, well-being, happiness, mindfulness, adventure, travel, creativity, communication, confidence, learning, self-improvement, openness, growth mindset, sense of fulfillment and much more good stuff that's aimed at moving you in the direction of your best self!

We reflect on the journey of life and the adventure within ourselves, in our work and traveling the world. Infact, we explore travel quite a bit – the Japanese culture and some wisdom within and Africa and the beauty of learning of different cultures. We explore consistent themes that emerge from both of our podcasting shows through episodes such as what a gift crisis can be in one’s life. We discuss things such as Music (Michael and I met through our love of the handpan), Travel (Michael is passionate about travel, has made a vow to himself to spend every birthday overseas and is about to embark on a solo-world-tour), Values (and interestingly – re-value-ting periodically), Just Do It (take action as a life motto), Living in Congruence with Yourself (the importance of Honesty with yourself.

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you the importance of prioritizing your passions and having fun in this life. Michael’s story highlights the brilliance of being truthful with yourself. Everyone has a different truth pouring out of them and thus this episode makes us question everything we’ve thought about enjoyment and why we may be avoiding living life inlined without passions. In this conversation, we discuss Michael’s habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about living in congruence with yourself and thus having fun and embracing the adventure of life!

<![CDATA[1 Man, 10 Years, 100 Goals: How Fully Lived Dreams Result in Financial, Location & Time Freedom! with Tal Gur]]> Sun, 08 Oct 2017 23:33:25 GMT 1:05:53 https://www.amrit-sandhu.com/?p=148 no https://shows.pippa.io/5b608ed9bc2100ab332176d0/5b608f04266bdee1515226e7 In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we are Inspired by Tal Gur… 1 man, 10 Years, 100 Goals ! Not just your everyday goals, but Bucket List Goals involving all aspects of life. Tal categorized these goals: Health, Wealth, Knowledge, In this episode of Inspired Evolution, we are Inspired by Tal Gur… 1 man, 10 Years, 100 Goals ! Not just your everyday goals, but Bucket List Goals involving all aspects of life. Tal categorized these goals: Health, Wealth, Knowledge, Contribution/Spiritual, Business, Social/Family, Travel, Adventure and More.

Tal wrote down a list of 100 life goals and accomplished them !!! He finished triathlons, started up businesses, traveled to incredible places… He has had epic experiences and now continues living the dreams.

Tune in as we explore the wisdom he has to share from within his unique story. We get an insight into his upcoming book: The Art of Fully Living and explore his offerings as he not only inspired but coaches people into financial, location and time freedom through his work www.fullylived.com.

Tal is a Digital Nomad, Adventurist, Author, Coach, and Futurist. Tal sees himself as a Growth Agent and a Collector of Experiences! I deeply enjoyed this conversation where Tal shares the fundamental importance of BEING your-total-awesome-self and his abundant wisdom on time freedom, location freedom, and location freedom.

 

We discuss how death defines life and why you shouldn’t delay your dreams. We explore what a gift crisis can be in one’s life. And how Your fears are pointing you to your direction/mission. We talk at length about one’s mission and how you don’t need to know the entire landscape of where you’re headed before you start; your mission is constantly unfolding and you don’t really need to know your vision to be devoted to it ! As such the importance of being both Firm and Flexible emerged.

To fully live, there are many areas of life to master. Especially as everything is connected, your health to your sociability to your wealth, etc. Intriguingly we explore how different skills acquired on Tal journey to accomplish his 100 goals all impacted other aspects of his life unexpectedly. So, what is Tal doing now having fully lived? He is here in Service, here to Contribute.

Tal shares the framework of his contribution and coaching: where Modern slavery is described by having a 9 – 5 Job with an excessive lifestyle. He then coaches people towards developing an Active Online Income and shifting to a Moderate Lifestyle. Ultimately helping people achieve Time, Location and Financial Freedom through the development of a Passive Online Income with a Minimalist Lifestyle.

Tal affirms that You can have amazing experiences without having a lot of money. The idea that you need a lot of money to travel abundantly is a limiting belief. Often living overseas can be cheaper than living at home. Fundamentally, happiness is associated with being experience rich; not financially rich.

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you what you can accomplish if you get determined and take massive action. Tal’s story conveys that everyone is here to achieve/deliver something different and make us question everything we’ve thought about how to do this. In this conversation, we discuss Tal Gur's habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about measuring death and therefore fully embracing life and never delaying your dreams… the time to take action… is Now!

We welcome Skip Kelly who only 18 months ago had never left the United States and now in the last 5 months since May this year has visited over 18 countries and lives the life of his dreams in doing so ! Tune in as we explore the wisdom he has to share from within his story. We get a first peak insight into his upcoming book with the working title: The Most Beautiful Question and his upcoming Mindvalley Quest on Priming (for health and happiness). Skip is a Digital Nomad, Adventurist, Futurist and Extreme/Incredible FilmMaker, International Health Professional, haha, the list goes on… Safe to say Skip now lives outside the Box ! I deeply enjoyed this conversation where Skip shares the fundamental importance of BEING your-total-awesome-self and his wisdom on “2 SECONDS OF COURAGE” and “UNSTOPPABILITY”. We further explored his deep seeded passion of exploring Personal Development being backed with Hard Science. Along the way, we also discuss some of the greatest challenges facing the planet and humanity, taking action, how advice doesn't really serve you, truthfully… a caption will never be able to do this episode justice.

He went from earning a more-than-respectable living helping Olympians and professional athletes, CEO's and high-high-performers with their health when no one else could, Skip now travels the world following his dream doing all kinds of inspirational work – where he drops in and out of companies as their CMO (Cheif Media Officer) contributing to him living a life that Inspires himself. Vitally we hear from Skip that your greatest contribution to humanity and the planet is to live your most inspired version of yourself ! We explore this journey with him, how he inspires himself and what inspires him and how he got to where he is today – living the life of his dreams. In this episode, we discuss the importance of Taking Immediate Action and Resilience and how that can aid you in finding what it is that you're here to contribute to the world. We also explore the future of humanity and the planet and how our personal purpose is woven into the greater purpose of all things.

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you that everyone is here to achieve/deliver something different and therefore there are many ways to achieve your goals. In this conversation, we discuss Skip Kelly's habits, hacks, philosophies, and tools that have formed the threads of his success, happiness, health, and wealth. This is a story about embracing life and embracing fear beyond failure and finding freedom on the other side. Enjoy!

He went from living the Corporate American-dream Life, being the chief executive managing over $250 billion dollars in assets for companies such as AT&T and Shell to now embracing early retirement and traveling around Australia living the Camper Van Life – All in the pursuit of living a life of deeper Meaning and Contentment. We explore this journey with him and how he got to where he is today – a nomad who at the inspiringly ripe young age of 62 feels more doors opening for him than ever before.

This conversation is extremely valuable it shows you that everyone is here to achieve/deliver something different and that it is never too late to find a direction with greater meaning or purpose in your life. It also sets an example that perhaps the corporate lifestyle leaves a lot to be desired even after you've reached the very top.

This is a story about embracing life with enthusiasm and finding/forging your own unique path. Always. Enjoy.
