This week's show is with my good friend Adam Quiney, Adam is an executive leadership coach specializing in working with the Smartest People in the Room. A former software developer and attorney, Adam’s learned the hard way about the costs that come from keeping your heart safe and chasing after external rewards to feel whole and complete.
 
From love, Adam is connection, passion, presence, wit and brilliance. From fear, he is awkward, robotic, apathetic, irrelevant and arrogant. He’s learned to embrace all these parts of himself, and works with others to do the same in their own lives. He is a man on a mission to bring the world to a more inspired and fully-expressed place.
 
So in this episode, Adam and I dived deep into a conversation around standing and BEING coach and leader in
our relationships (friendships, romantic relationships, etc.), what that looks like, how it relates to being vulnerable, how flipping difficult it can be and why it's even a game worth playing. We also share some of our own recent screw-ups and successes (some of which are possibly the same thing)!

In this conversation, we spoke about the power of beauty in creating aliveness, inspiration, pleasure and embodiment, which is something that Michaela is seeing more deeply from the experiences of her house being burned down, her subsequent lack of real home, and then her current rebuilding of it. We touched upon cultural expectations of beauty and how this shows up in how we experience women’s bodies that don't fit those standards, for example in ageing or post-children. Lastly, Michaela gives a beautifully simple way that anyone can choose into cultivating beauty in their lives.

This week's show is with Isis Leeor. Isis is responsible for a movement of whole, ripe, and unapologetic women who are finally coming out of the closet. For 15 years, she has been passionately teaching people (women and men) how to connect both hearts, the one in their chest and the one in their pelvis.

Isis has been featured in a myriad newspapers and radio shows alongside people like Storm Large, Dan Savage, Deborah Anapol and Sark. She is a counselor with an extensive background in Body Psychotherapy, Tantra, Hypnotherapy. Basically she does some kick ass embodied work online and in person, through workshops, intensives and private sessions. She is currently working on her book entitled “Feral Female.”

In addition to a lot of official studies, Isis has also howled at the moon, been saved by Qi-gong, taken drugs with a therapist, smoked a peace pipe, flipped off a Shaman, learned and unlearned emotionally responsible language, danced with her shirt off in public, avoided marrying an Essene guru, and worn cocktail dresses all over the world while going commando.

In this conversation, Isis and I explored 'the idea of other women as home'. How our cultural and personal wounds get in the way of connecting deeply and openly with other women, how we compete instead of connect, and how we can heal and learn to be with other women in a way that allows us to see and enjoy each other's unique beauty and feel safe in that experience.

This week's show is with Nathan Seaward. Nathan's self-discovery took him from pilot to coach and now teaches his clients to do the same.

Nathan enjoyed a successful 16-year career as an airline pilot before becoming a personal coach and host of The Nathan Seaward Show. He believes, through the process of self discovery and self mastery, entrepreneurs can change the world whilst creating extraordinary lives for themselves and their families.

He supports entrepreneurs to create game changing businesses that help people and the planet in new and innovative ways.  From being a successful entrepreneur in the food industry, to leaving at the height of his piloting career to serve others, he’s always lived at the edge of his comfort zone, taking on new and challenging things in service of being his best self and serving the world.

Nathan and I had such a rich deep conversation about choosing into adventure and challenge as a way to fuel growth and specifically to be more authentic. We talked about the inevitable fear that shows up, how to understand it and determine where it's coming from. And lastly, how to discern intuition, head and heart.

This week's show is with Dylan Newcomb. Founder of UZAZU, which began over 17 years ago as the personal quest of a professional dancer & musician who was determined to find ways he could use voice & movement to cultivate more positive thoughts, emotions and relationships in his life.

But this 'personal quest' was to lead him to something larger... Several government research-grants, hundreds of workshops, and thousands of 'participants' later, UZAZU has grown & evolved into one of the most practical and effective personal development & 'state shift' techniques within the rapidly growing field of Embodiment Practices.

In this episode, we spoke about the epidemic of stress, resentment, anxiety and loss of energy that we face in this modern world. We explored how the nervous system works (Dylan is a master at this!) and the role of embodiment in supporting it to relax, and the interplay between core beliefs and conditioning of our nervous system.

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.

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.

This might not seem like a particularly relevant topic to you at first glance but personally, I think this is SUCH an important reclamation, it's a portal into so much of our primal power. I've seen that personally and with the women I work with in ceremony and circle... we are all so thirsty for ritual without even realising it. Now's the time for you to quench that thirst.

This is something that Kendra and I see show up so often with our clients but also in ourselves! We then shared some ways to expand past this sense of waiting to be met.
 
I adored this show, Kendra is such a rare gem and is overflowing with wisdom - I think you're going to love it too.

This week's show is with Neilon Pitamber, an all round bodyworker and founder of BodyFirst. He has been teaching and coaching bodywork (working with bodies in a conscious way), for around 15 years.

Born in Zimbabwe and bred in London where he gained a BSc Hons in Zoology at Imperial College. Since then he has been on a continuing journey of self-development and education. His broad experience allows him combine a deep understanding of human nature in a holistic and organic way with the latest revelations in biology, health, fitness and self-development.

Neilon’s passion is to share some of his knowledge and to empower people on their journey to wellness, happiness and all out celebration of this amazing gift of body that we have.

In this show, Neilon and I explored what it means to live a body first life - in a world in which we've largely become disembodied and value our minds more than the rest of us. We talked about human history, different movement and embodiment practices - both in the past and modern day, the benefits of living 'body first' and then dived into some practical steps you can take to become more intentional about living this way.

This week's show is with Darren Deojee, Darren is all about bringing Positive Masculinity your way. He is firmly rooted in the Oral Tradition and the Toltec Mysteries and their irreplaceable power to bring transformation, realisation and connection. With 10 years teaching, and over 20 years practical experience in Toltec Gender and the Art of Spelling and Sound, his approach has transformed the relationships, perspective and personal power of thousands over the years.

He calls his work Mental Healing to tackle a western pandemic he refers to as ‘mental disembodiment’ and return us to our indigenous nature of Integral Mind and embodied language.

This week’s show is exploring how we can navigate this gender-confused world. We talked about what we know of gender and sex when it comes to human history, how we've arrived at our current controversy and confusion, and the challenges that come with it, and lastly: what we can do to navigate this terrain for ourselves, our communities and our families.

Both Darren and I were aware that this is both a very sensitive topic and also one that we feel is so important for us all to be able to discuss openly. We did our best to speak with our hearts wide open, conscious of the actual human beings with lived experiences that our words might affect.

Ultimately, we both share a pure intention to help create and cultivate a world where open conversations on this topic are happening everywhere, and we're willing to risk any heat arising from this episode if it goes some way to achieve that aim.

If we as humans are to live free, connected and meaningful lives that truly honours our differences - there doesn't seem like there's another way than us being able to talk openly and honestly about the things that matter.

I was so excited to have Alexandra and Sjarnie on this show, I'm a huge fan of their book Wild Power and think the work they're doing in the world is incredibly powerful and so so needed.
 
So in this show, we explored how women are coded for power, and the journey to realizing the fullness and beauty of that power – your Wild Power – lies in the rhythm and change of your menstrual cycle.

We explored how women can learn to love their menstrual cycle - from a practical view point and and also in a deeply spiritual way - and the benefits of doing so, not least that it is the key to understanding yourself, what you came here to do and ultimately accessing your full authority and power as woman.

Alexandra and Sjarnie are sterling examples of women in their full power - they were such a delight to interview.  This episode was one of my all time top 3 shows - it really was that good!

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • There's the being and the doing of creating a world that works for everyone.
  • The being is about treating people with dignity, respect and loving kindness - the more we come from that grounding of wellbeing, the more we create from that place and the more that feeling spreads
  • The doing is to stop operating in silos and acting like any one of has the answer - we need to start listening to the solutions that people have created and are creating all over the world.
  • It's then about how we - Bill, Grace, the people they work with and me and you - collaborate and put those answers into action. How we can all be that change.

This week's show is with Justin Patrick Pierce, an Author, Mentor and Spiritual Intimacy Teacher. As the founder of Sacred, a Los Angeles based collective of spiritual teachers, coaches and practitioners of the sacred arts, Justin works with select veteran and up-and-coming professionals to help them master their craft and bring their work to the world. As intimacy teacher, Justin is the co-author of the Amazon best-selling book, The Awakened Women’s Guide to Everlasting Love, and the leader of transformative high-end retreats including the signature training, Yoga of Intimacy, which he leads with his life partner, Londin Angel Winters.

So in this show, we explored the three pillars of spiritual intimacy and swum the deep waters of relating, presence, polarity, spirituality and more... it really was the whole shebang! Justin's presence and depth blew me away, this was an incredible show which I so enjoyed making. If you have an interest in better, richer, deeper relationships with other human beings, you'll love this show too!
 
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:

  • The practices of deepening into sacred intimacy is found across the world and throughout history, it seems like this something that's universal to humans.
  • The three pillars that Justin spoke about are:
    • Presence: the embodiment of consciousness. We would love to be penetrated and held by a consciousness that we trust more than our own. We long to to be seen and loved in our totality. And whilst we want it more than anything in the world, its also the scariest thing in the world because opening that much comes with the risk of being hurt. The feminine heart will continually test that presence to see if it can be trusted.
    • Polarity: this is the creative tension that occurs between the poles of masculine and feminine, light and awareness, or form and formless and that in sexual relationships creates that juicy and exciting spark. This will typically be automatically there at the beginning of a relationship but can also be consciously cultivated in long term relationships. For depth, the first pillar of presence is necessary first.
    • Devotion: this is required to show up in this dynamic of intimacy over and over again. It isn't something that's forced upon us, in this modern world we can be independent and self-reliant, however if we desire something more than independence, we can choose into devotion to another person and to the path of deepening into spiritual intimacy with them.

This week's show is with my good friend Adam Quiney, Adam is an executive leadership coach specializing in working with the Smartest People in the Room. A former software developer and attorney, Adam’s learned the hard way about the costs that come from keeping your heart safe and chasing after external rewards to feel whole and complete.
 
From love, Adam is connection, passion, presence, wit and brilliance. From fear, he is awkward, robotic, apathetic, irrelevant and arrogant. He’s learned to embrace all these parts of himself, and works with others to do the same in their own lives. He is a man on a mission to bring the world to a more inspired and fully-expressed place.
 
So in this show, we will be diving deep into the juicy topic of how to navigate the next edge in your leadership, we’ll talk about stages of leadership, blurting, taking responsibility and more. And if you don't identify as a leader, I really encourage you to listen anyway - you'll discover it's absolutely for you too.
 
We actually recorded this as a special Behind The Scenes live on fb - and if you'd like to watch the recording of that, there'll be the link on the show notes.

This week's show is with JP Morgan, JP guides creators in being more powerful in every area of their life and work. The entrepreneurs and artists he coaches all share an aspiration for excellence and an obsession with mastery. Through regular loving and confronting dialogue, which compliments their daily practice of self-cultivation, JP’s clients discover how their mind creates their world and how through surrender they can gain greater control, more fulfilment and exponential results in their life and work.

In its essence, JP Morgan has been supporting entrepreneurs and artists around the world since the late 90’s, though this work became his profession in 2010. Since then, he has supported numerous individuals in growing their peace, joy and success in the world through growing themselves. 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. Previous to his current work with leaders, and post formal studies in Physics and Mathematics, JP founded a real estate business and then (from a backpack) founded a web media company serving local and global non-profits. He has lived nomadically while travelling the world for three years, coached human rights leaders, toured as a musician in bands, developed a children’s library in Cambodia, published travel writing and photography, competed as a black belt and triathlete, performed as a professional magician, studied with Buddhist monks and spiritual teachers, paraglided the Swiss Alps, cycled solo for thousands of miles and has gone on many other adventures.

In 2013, in the Riveria Maya, JP married a wise, loving and beautiful British-Indian woman. In March of 2016 they gave birth to their first child, a boy. Today his family calls Santa Monica, California home although they spend many months abroad each year, including extended visits for work, friends and family in London. In this conversation, JP and I explored consciously wielding deception as an act of love to create forms that express the truth of who we are and can be. Or put more simply lying with love, creating from soul.

This week's show is with Shanti Zimmerman. Shanti is a coach who facilitates the crafting of boundaries, emotional resiliency and ownership of a life worth living. What I personally adore about Shanti is how she's so fully expressed and how OK she is with who she is. In this show we explored giving yourself permission to be who you are. We went into how we choose that (because it's very much a choice), creating boundaries, being able to continue being ourselves in the face of other people's disapproval of how we're showing up.

What you'll learn from this episode:

Choosing to give yourself permission to be yourself - it really is a choice, there isn't a magical moment where it happens to us, it's a choice we can make in any moment to take responsibility for ourselves and what we're putting out into the world.

Start speaking to learn what your voice is. We don't need to wait until we have this crystallised sense of who we are and what our voice is before we start speaking ourself into the world. We can be responsible for our impact without shaming or making ourselves wrong for how our actions have landed on others. We have the choice to take full responsibility to be open to receive what the other person feels and to take an action to move things into different place.

Shanti sees boundaries as a vital aspect to being fully you, it's about having an internal sense of feeling right with yourself in alignment with your values. It's doesn't need to be something that pleases anyone else in the world, if you feel right with yourself then then that's the boundary right there.

This week's show is with Jørgen Rasmussen, who has seen clients professionally as an agent of change for twenty years, the first eight spent running an "Impossibles practice" with a 'no change, no pay' policy.

Having deeply explored NLP, hypnosis, non-duality teachings, developmental psychology and meditation, he is the Author of the books Provocative Hypnosis (2008) and Provocative Suggestions (2015).

In this show, Jørgen and I explored the fascinating topic of what he calls waking up and growing up. Or you could call it enlightenment and personal development. And after we dived into those two pretty humungous and contradictory fields we then bravely jumped into the deep end of how to live from the paradox of both waking up and growing up!

This week's show is with Kenny Mammarella-D'Cruz. Kenny was called "The Man Whisperer" by Newsweek because, not only does he help men achieve their life, relationship and career goals, he also helps men to be more authentically and powerfully who they truly are.

As one of the UK’s leading men’s personal development consultants, Kenny runs workshops and sees individuals and couples for private consultations and has been running men’s groups in London for 14 years. Kenny was traumatised at the age of seven when his family had to flee certain death at the hands of the brutal dictator Idi Amin and were resettled as refugees in rural Wales via refugee camps. As a result of post-traumatic stress syndrome, Kenny developed several mental health issues, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette's syndrome, body dysmorphia and depression with intrusive and suicidal thoughts. Thankfully that’s all behind him now. When asked how he turned it all around, he’s fond of saying that he sat with the shadows that owned him, unlearned the untruths and turned that energy into the fuel to walk his path and live his purpose.

In this show we explored what men fear. We spoke about communication amongst our own sex and between the sexes, toxic masculinity, toxic femininity, relationships and how to make them work. As ever, Kenny dropped some real gold - I loved this episode.

This week's show is with Phoenix Na Gig. Phoenix lives in the wild beauty of Cornwall, England. and works with women around the world. Remembering the nature of our womb consciousness, she is part of the ushering in of a new paradigm of awakening feminine nature on the planet.

She is fascinated by both the history and the contemporary embodiment and re-emergence of women's wisdom as a journey to healing, balance, wellness and power. She is also an academic research student writing towards a thesis recording the awakening womb experiences of contemporary women in the eco-feminist movement and anthropologically she draws parallels with the suggestion of similar devotion and ancient sacred/religious experience in the womb caves of the Palaeolithic.

Her own journey began with a sense of magic and wonder and reverence for the natural world. As a young woman she was called to heal after ovarian surgery and look deeper into the uncovering and healing of childhood trauma and assault as an adult, that led her way back to the wisdom of her body and the body of the earth.

Phoenix was then diagnosed with Essential Tremor a degenerative condition with (medically) no known cure. She now calls this her Sacred Tremor, without her continuing journey to find balance with the condition she turned it into an advantage and found her way to her womb and the earth.

In this show, we explored what Phoenix describes as feminine-inspired leadership, which comes out of the spiritual connection between body and Gaia. This was a delicious episode, overflowing with wisdom and love. I hope you found it as inspiring as I did.

This week's show is with Dr. Tumi Johnson, M.D. Dr Tumi believes that to truly thrive means embracing our wholeness; and she embodies that through all of her work as a physician, poet and dancer.

Dr Tumi started out as a mainstream doctor who had a passion for dance that she originally kept very separate. Over the years in a series of twist and turns, dark nights of the soul and unexpected opportunities, she's blended her traditional training, her extensive nutrition expertise, her skill as a yoga teacher and her passion for dance into a unique, holistic and highly effective way of working with her patients, to achieve and sustain their most vibrant well-being.

Through her work, she has had many patients heal a myriad of issues ranging from diabetes to hormonal imbalances to persistent weight challenges.

In this show, we explored how Dr Tumi works with her patients in a way that isn't limited to the kinds of treatment we might typically consider as medicine, she also includes personalised recommendations for movement that will support them to health.
 
Dr Tumi gives some brilliantly practical ways to make movement work for you in this deeply medicinal way. I found this such an incredible and illuminating conversation.

This week's show is with Rion Kati. Rion is a Reiki Master,  an Advanced Tantra Educator and he is the voice of the Powerliminals meditations and founder of the Natural Grounding method of sex transmutation which has 1000s of male practitioners.

He has been serving men for 16 years as a natural dating and soul purpose alignment coach and he is now focusing on his work with women. Rion has a unique background in that he has meditated for 14,000 hours with meta feminine archetypes giving him special abilities and practical insight into allure, sexuality, archetypes, reading energy and professional image.

In this show we explored allure - what it is and isn't. Why so many women today lack it and how we can embody and express more of it.

This is a fascinating topic - I felt that Rion and this show provided a uniquely deep journey into a topic we as a culture typically obsess over but only at a shallow level. I loved it!

This week's show is with teacher, consultant and change management expert Patrick O’Neill, author of "The Only Certain Freedom: The Transformative Journey of the Entrepreneur," an unconventional and highly-acclaimed business book that draws its teachings from the wisdom of the Hero’s Journey, and what modern entrepreneurs can learn from the ancient myths of heroes like Hercules and Odysseus.

Patrick certainly has the expertise to back this up: he is a nationally renowned consultant and teacher, specializing in organizational dynamics and conflict resolution. His company, Extraordinary Conversations Inc, has clients across the world, advising corporations in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific; townships of South Africa; and even the peace process in the Middle East. His insights on leadership are regularly featured in national newspapers such as the Globe and Mail.

In this conversation, we spoke about the four archetypes: the Leader, Healer, Visionary and Teacher. Each archetype corresponds to a cardinal direction: North, South, East and West - and each direction contains a set of practices synthesized from worldwide shamanic traditions.

I loved this show - it has so much depth and also practical, applicable wisdom.
