The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Alison Armstrong, Alison’s exploration of human behaviour began in 1991, with her decision to study men, “To find out how I was bringing out the worst in them. And hopefully, how to bring out the best.” Her success in understanding men naturally led to studying women’s behaviour and making vital connections between the two.

Armstrong distinguishes human instincts that compel both men and women to behave in ways that contradict and undermine our own purposes, goals, values, needs and relationships. She offers partnership-based alternatives giving millions of people access to more fulfilling lives, loving relationships, stronger families and productive organisations.

Armstrong is a sought-after speaker and thought-leader amongst people with the desire to live empowered lives. Alison’s philosophy and approach is frequently referenced and taught by other authors, speakers, business consultants and therapists.

This is Alison's second time on the show, last time we spoke about how men and women can live in a way that honours our natural strengths and allows us to complement each other instead of being in conflict or competition with each other.  This time we spoke about how we can put those principles into action, even with all of the stresses, triggers and strains that show up in all of our lives. Again, Alison blew me away with her depth and breadth of insight into this topic, and her gorgeous way with words that really helps her message lands. This is truly an incredible episode.

This week's show is with Dagmar Khan. She is a world’s leading Women’s Empowerment and Trauma Alchemist. She helps women to break free from the handcuffs of broken-heartedness, social repression or trauma and reclaim their personal power, sexuality and financial abundance. With her focus on mind-body wellness and women’s sexual empowerment, she invites women to increase their confidence thermostat and capacity to lead with radiant power, trusting in their worth and divine work in the world.

In this episode, we explored the incredibly juicy topic of using an affair as a portal to more love, personal growth, creating a shared vision for the relationship, and healing past trauma. Yes, really!

Also, as well as being an incredibly helpful and healing episode for anyone who has experienced infidelity in their relationship, this is such a rich episode that it has truths for any human navigating intimate relationships. I can honestly recommend this to all of our listeners.

This week's show is with Elsie Escobar, a pioneer in the podcasting space with over ten years of experience as a podcaster. She was recently inducted into the Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame. Elsie has taken her knowledge in the podcasting space and uses her voice to help others gain their own voice in podcasting.

She knows the heart and soul of podcasters and podcasting beyond Apple Podcasts and public media. It is with this primary point of view of the average podcast listener (via thousands of hours of podcast listening) and independent podcast production that she brings a unique perspective to the podcasting industry.

Her passion within the industry is podcasting’s rapidly-changing environment, impact, access, community building, and advocacy.

She welcomes the opportunity to elevate existing conversations around podcast consumption and initiate ways to reach new listeners above focusing on metrics, advertising and monetization into social change and using podcasting as a tool for personal growth and transformation.

She also happens to be our very own podcasting mentor - and I'm so happy to have the opportunity to share her wisdom with you.

In this episode, we explored voice as a tool for personal transformation: the power of our voices, what gets in the way of us using them to their full range of expression, how we can work through those blocks, and the gifts and growth that come from learning to fully use our voices.
It doesn’t matter whether you use your voice professionally, eg as a podcaster, this episode is so relevant to anyone interested in discovering more about themselves.
