Her love of presence and passion for community continues to inspire and motivate her life’s work with individuals, groups and with-in the beautiful, loving and expanding Celebration of Being community in the UK.

In this conversation, we spoke about the power of women holding space for and supporting men to heal, which was inspired by a line on their website: "A loving compassionate woman can reconnect a man to his greatness faster than any other force in the world.", we spoke about the power of circle, rites of passage and creating spaces of love and acceptance within which men can heal.

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Debbi and Gina provide the womb-like space of acceptance, warmth and compassion that provides the safety that allows men to drop their coping mechanisms and do the healing work they need
  • So much of trauma is pre-verbal and in order to get access to the place it's held often requires the help of The Mystery, of Spirit, to work through us, even if we can't fully understand how it works
  • There's a lot in the media now about how women have been wounded by men, and yet Debbi and Gina have seen so many examples of where men have been wounded by women and the impact that's had on them. Because of the cultural narrative, it can be challenging for men to find spaces to share their experiences but it's so healing when they can
  • I loved what Debbie said about how when men experience women being devotional, honouring and respectful, it activates something in them that allows them to have a different experience of the Masculine and themselves as men

This week's show is with Damien Bohler. Damien is the founder and current director of Evolutionary Relating - an educational platform dedicated to transforming culture through evolving the way we relate to ourselves, to each other, to vocation and purpose and the natural world.

In his core he is an investigator. He is deeply fascinated by the way things work in this human realm. His interests span the exploration of intimacy, love, sexuality, attachment, polarity, human design, integral theory, permaculture, community living and more. His gift is in the ability to synthesise, articulate and transmit dense and disparate information and delights in doing so through the mediums of writing, facilitating, teaching and coaching.

In this conversation, Damien and I explored the possibility of using Human design as a lens on understanding ourselves and others so that we might individuate and work better with others to create more loving relationships, which ultimately serve the world.

To make the most use of this episode, it would be worthwhile to have your chart alongside (you can get a free one online) that you can reference as we go as Damien goes into some really helpful details about the most important elements of HD.

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • HD is helpful to create more intimacy because understanding ours and other people's uniqueness allows us to individuate and then discover how we can bring our gifts to each other
  • I loved Damien's explanation of the rationale of HD being determined by our time and place of birth: netrinos are moving through space all the time, they are so fast and small that they can pass through solid objects including planets, they carry specific information determined by the planets they pass through and thefore the position of planets at the time and place of our birth, when we're no longer buffered by our mother's body, is what determines what information will be downloaded into our brand new clean system
  • For many of us, knowing our aura type Manifestor, Manifesting Generator, Generator, Projector or Reflector, and that of the people we're close to can create a beautiful foundation for more understanding and intimacy

This week's show is with John Patrick Morgan. John Patrick is a Philosopher and Champion for Being whose life purpose is to serve the one person in front of him, right here and right now. To see them fully, to create who they are and to make a meaningful difference for them honestly and completely.

He leads a team of Creating Champions who teach, coach, and guide thousands of entrepreneurs and artists in being more free, loving, and powerful. By learning and embodying the Creating perspective, their clients achieve a union of outcomes in spiritual growth, material success, and social impact. The foundation of John Patrick Morgan’s role as a philosopher, teacher, and guide, is his being a real-world practitioner. He walks his talk, lives what he teaches, and has a genuine and powerful commitment to creating everybody.

Post his formal studies in Physics and Mathematics, John Patrick built multiple small businesses (including one from a laptop and a backpack before the term ‘digital nomad’ existed), developed real estate, traveled the world for years on end, coached human rights leaders, recorded albums & toured with his band, created a kids library in Cambodia, learned to scuba dive & pilot gliders, published writing and photography, competed as a black belt & triathlete, trained with Buddhist monks in India, cycled toured for months and many other adventures. In recent years, his adventures have turned inward as his family came to be. He and his wife now reside with their two young boys in the countryside at 4000′ on a mountain in Maui.

Beyond his the daily work with clients, he has been invited to share his ideas and spirit on numerous stages. (TEDx, Global Citizens Forum, BBC & SkyTV, YES Group, Interesting Talks London, InsideOut Movement, METal International, educational institutions, etc.) At a private event, attended by many of the world’s billionaires, JP was invited to speak on creating a world world without borders. At the University of Cambridge, he was the subject of a covert study between the psychology and business departments where researchers sought to understand the impact of his state of being.

In this conversation, a part two to our last episode about magic, John Patrick and I explored the topic of magic when it comes to children - how we can parent in a way that both allows children to retain their natural sense of magic and possibility, and at the same time, gives them an understanding of what we might call our cultural "agreed upon reality", holding both lightly as we do. We spoke about all kinds of examples, including personal stories from our own families.

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • I loved the example of dragons and dinosaurs that JP gave - this is such a great metaphor for how we can hold and teach so many things to our children.
  • Whether we're talking about a rational reality or a magical one - there's benefit in holding both lightly with the openness to possibility, knowing that we don't know what we don't know.
  • Children are naturally very open to magic and archetypes, in the form of role-playing super heroes, our role is to help them to continue to stay open to magic so that one day they can create with it as adults
