The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Dr. Helané Wahbeh. Helané Wahbeh, ND, MCR, is the Director of Research at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Wahbeh is clinically trained as a naturopathic physician and research trained with a Master of Clinical Research and two post-doctoral research fellowships.

Recently named President of the Parapsychological Association, she has published on and spoken internationally about her studies on complementary and alternative medicine, mind-body medicine, extended human capacities, stress, posttraumatic stress disorder, and their relationships to physiology, health, and healing.

Dr. Wahbeh is especially known for her research around — and noetic approach to — channeling. She is the author of some 90+ peer-reviewed publications, the new book The Science of Channeling: Why You Should Trust Your Intuition and the Force That Connects Us All and Free To Be Me: A Journey of Transformation through Generational Healing.

In this show, Helané and Lian spoke about Helane's personal experience and deep work on the science of channeling, which is actually an entire spectrum ranging from intuition to trance chanelling.

This was an incredible show - Lian experienced goose bumps aplenty, which turns out to be an one of the signs of an "embodied channeller" and is an indication of truth being spoken!

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:

  • Channeling seems actually not to be a rare experience but is one that is shared by most humans - which suggests we are far more than we believe.
  • Research into forms of channeling shows that there's something going on that can not be explained by materialist views on the world - whether it's a higher self or something else that's being channeled, information and energy is indeed coming through
  • As Helene said - even if we don't yet have the tools to know what exactly is being channeled or how, wouldn't it make sense to make use of the wonderful gifts that come from it?

This week's show is with Jody Day. Jody, known as the ‘voice of the childless generation’ and less often but more memorably as ‘The Beyonce of childlessness’, is a 57-year-old psychotherapist, an author and the founder of Gateway Women (GW).

Gateway Women is a global friendship and support network for childless women established since 2011 which have been featured have been featured regularly in the UK press and internationally such as France, Spain, Italy, Canada, Australia and NZ. She is the author of the famous book ‘Living the Life Unexpected: How to Find Hope, Meaning and a Fulfilling Future Without Children' which just released a fully updated 2nd ed. last year, published by Bluebird/PanMacmillan UK and with 50 prestigious endorsements including The British Medical Journal.

Aside from being a TEDx speaker, a global thought leader on female involuntary childlessness and a social entrepreneur, Jody was chosen by the BBC to be one of 100 Women to celebrate 100 Years of Feminism. She is a founding and former board member at Ageing Well Without Children, a former Fellow in Social Innovation at Cambridge Judge Business School, a World Childless Week Ambassador and also a PLICA (Australia) Ambassador.

This year, Jody she was chosen as one of Digital Women’s 40 Women to Watch and was nominated by the UK organisation Digital Women as a finalist as a ‘Digital Role Models’. A life-long Londoner, she is now a ‘blow-in’ in rural Ireland where she is working on a novel and her new Conscious Childless Elderwomen project for Gateway Women.

In this show, Jody and Lian spoke about the archetype of the childfree and childless woman, why this archetype is so dismissed and demonised, the hidden Feminine power held there that's actually available to all women - and is the medicine the planet needs right now. 

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:

  • Jody's explanation of grief of the childless woman and how unseen it is, really hit me - grief is a potent alchemical force, already so misunderstood in our culture, and even more in this area - and one that affects so many in our world.
  • The archetype of the childless or childfree woman is so often seen only through the lens of the shadow, when we look at the light aspects of her, we see an incredible power that can be reclaimed for her good but also for the good of all of us - this is wisdom, love, energy that is so needed right now.
  • I so agree with Jody that it's our lack of understanding and fear of differences that are at the heart of so many of the issues in our culture - with love and willingness to understand the experiences of others that we can begin to bridge that gap.

This week's show is with Marisa Goudy. Marisa is an author, a word witch, a story healer, an intuitive tarot reader, a writing coach, and an energy healer who helps folks discover, embody, and tell their own Sovereign stories.

In her book, The Sovereignty Knot: A Woman’s Way to Freedom, Power, Love, and Magic, Marisa combines her passion for Celtic goddess and Irish myth with her feminist vision of creating an equitable world that is more beautiful, bearable, and bold.

Marisa is the founder of the online writers’ community, the Sovereign Writers’ Knot, and creator of the 7 Magic Words Project. She works with writers, creative entrepreneurs, and wisdom seekers who are on a quest to reconnect to their magic, their purpose, and their voice.

Everything Marisa does is grounded in the mix of the magical and the practical as she helps people bring more healing, creativity, connection, sovereignty, and love to their lives.

In this show, Marisa and Lian spoke about the alchemy of Sovereignty and creativity, the archetypal lens we share on Sovereignty, how we can be compelled to create lives that are not really for us, and how we can navigate and create from Sovereignty instead.

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 love how Marisa spoke to Sovereignty right at the beginning: sovereignty is tending to ourselves so that we can tend to others, tend to the collective. There's such a helpful knowing there in that by living in a way that can seem selfish, it's actually anything but.
  • Sovereign creativity requires discernment - to be guided by a deeper knowing of what's right for us rather than the shoulds and what's seemingly perfect - but perfect for someone else
  • Lastly, sometimes compromise is what's called for, however being Sovereign is about living and creating in a way that's aligned to our souls rather than a life of compromise.

This week's show is with Mellissa Seaman. Mellissa Seaman was a Stanford-educated business lawyer until her intuitive abilities awakened in the year 2000 with the birth of her daughter. Now she bridges the worlds of business strategy and intuitive intelligence. Creative designers, Fortune 500 executives, and thought leaders hire her to teach them how to Channel their Genius - to create on demand, to stay in their flow state, and to create lucrative businesses that follow their souls’ calling.

In this show, Mellissa and Lian spoke about Mellissa's amazing story of becoming a channel of her soul gifts, how and why it happened, the work she now does with others so that they can channel their genius and finally, we talked about the five different types of soul gifts we can have.

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:

  • Mellissa's incredible story of coming into her soul gifts so powerfully has aspects that are helpful for all of us - what really stood out to me was the portals that open at birth and death, and the way she's trusted what was coming through her and allowed it to bloom in her life
  • I loved what Mellissa said about it's time for us to bring business and spirit together, it's time for us to value spirit
  • The five types of Soul Gifts Mellissa mentioned were: Creator, Messenger, Transmitter, Explorer, Researcher. Initially on the recording she said I was a Messenger first and also a bit of a Transmitter, after we finished recording she then said "...actually, I'm pretty sure you're more a Transmitter." I took the quiz after we spoke and I am indeed a Transmitter!

This week's show is with Lynne Forrest. Lynne is regarded as a non-traditional psychotherapist who has been in private practice for over twenty-five years, is widely known as a Reality Guide and Personal Growth Mentor for her empathy, compassion and her no-nonsense approach in dealing with life issues. She uses ancient spiritual principles to help those who struggle to find their way into right alignment with themselves and their life purpose.

Her original work in recognizing victim consciousness as a widespread epidemic with its own set of definable and recognizable characteristics has revolutionized her approach with clients and transformed the lives of many. She has developed a unique understanding of how the mind works and ways to liberate it from the throes of what she calls the “victim mind.”

Lynne came up through the ranks of experiential learning rather than the more traditional academic route and has sought and found practical ways of applying those principles for immediate positive change. She out in the mental health field in the early seventies, hired and trained by an HMO (health maintenance organization) in social work and mental health. She has been in the field of personal growth ever since - moving to the addictions field in the early eighties after successfully transforming her own addictive lifestyle into a more creative and productive one. Lynne has run her own private practice since 1985.

As a perpetual student of life and consciousness, Lynne has devoted herself to studying with masters of various disciplines. Her first teacher was her mother, Estelle Sanford, a student of metaphysics, who was herself an intuitive that drew upon her inner knowing for wisdom and spiritual truths.

In this show, Lynne and Lian spoke about the Victim Triangle (based on the Drama Triangle created by Dr. Stephen Karpman), how this is about ancient human stories and archetypes, and how we can move into observer consciousness.

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 archetypes on the Victim Triangle are defense strategies that we take on out of a core belief about who we are in world, who we are in our family, who we are as an identity that we take on, based on the feedback we're getting from the world around us
  • As we become aware of and begin to consciously participate in the story we've been living, we can actually use the same archetypes that were using to keep us in it to now begin to liberate ourselves: spotting when we're being the Victim and projecting the Persecutor on someone else
  • As we move more into what Lynne calls Observer Consciousness and we call Sovereignty we are able to watch the Victim Triangle stories play out within us and others, without being compelled to move into the Persecutor to make ourselves or them wrong for living what is a deeply human story

This week's show is with The Infinite Couple: Baba Richard and Sri Namaste. Baba and Sri are spiritual leaders and relationship alchemists, who created a potent pathway to sacred love, business growth, and spiritual alchemy. They have worked privately with some of the most exciting individuals and couples throughout the globe.

The Infinite Couple embraced the Divine Feminine and Masculine and created ultimate Couple Archetyping protocols that has resulted life-changing shifts in radical fulfillment, limitless abundance and self-actualization among individuals and couples. They are currently uplifting couples worldwide through their Couple Unification Prototypes Modality, The Framework of Marriage Mastery, The DYAD: Paradigm, and Power Of Eleven Marriage program, resulting in 11x more powerful relationships with your partner, your business, and consciousness itself.

In today’s show we explored Richard and Namaste's understanding and deep embodiment of union, how the bringing together of polarities such as Men and Women, Black and White, Spirit and Science, Light and Dark Workers, Conscious Wealth is the future - and one that is available to us now if we're willing to release our grip on homogeneity and fairness.

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:

  • In our well intended desire for fairness, we often end up creating a need to be the same, a homogeneity which means we don't get to benefit from the power of the ends of the poles or the energy created between the two
  • I loved what Richard said about how the celebration of differences is a world in which we cultivate excellence, genius, beauty and artistry - things that could be said to be some of the best qualities of humans, and certainly ones I value greatly
  • When we bring the best of ourselves, our true power, and we also join together with another powerful person then we become an engine. Something greater than the sum of its parts.
 

Resources and stuff that we spoke about:

  • The article we spoke about “The future is WE"
  • The Infinite Couple
  • The Sanctum of Feminine Transformation: A living Feminine Embodiment Mystery School and Alchemic Wisdom Tradition for women to learn embodiment and emanation of Femininity
  • The Dyad Paradigm: The DYAD is the most fundamental universal and powerful Unit of measure in the Universe. Nothing sentient is born here without the involvement of this Union. The Newest New in Consciousness, the MOVEMENT that is arising as an expression of Infinite Intelligence playing an Infinitely Individuated Coupling Game.

This week's show is with Dr. Paul J. Leslie. Paul is a psychotherapist, author, and educator in Aiken, South Carolina. Paul is a licensed therapist and a National Board Certified Fellow in Hypnotherapy. He has a doctorate in Counseling Psychology and is presently the coordinator of the psychology program at Aiken Technical College. He has authored eight books which focus on the areas of transformative psychotherapy, healing, shamanism, and personal development. Paul is a popular trainer of Solution-Based therapies, Ericksonian Hypnosis, and creative coaching applications.

In this show, Paul and Lian explored the parallels between magic and psychotherapy, the power of our context for creating the life we live, how and why we make distinctions and how they can be limiting, and how we can move from a “problem solving existence” to a magical life in which we listen to our own hearts to guide us.

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:

  • What is your Context? This is the filter through which you will see everything and create within.
  • Paul talked about the way we make distinctions - this is natural and unavoidable, the invitation is to notice when our distinction has become a problem or limitation that is creating a life that isn't the one we desire
  •  I love how Paul talked about experience vs information... this is especially relevant for coaches and therapists but is actually so helpful for all of us who wish to create a life of wonder and meaning.

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:

  • Sophie's experience of being larger and then smaller is a powerful example of how our physical expression is received by others, regardless of our other qualities
  • I love Sophie's insight on WHY she created that experience of herself and life - this is such an illuminating question to ask ourselves
  • Harnessing the conscious creation of our expression in alignment with our Soul's Will means that we may or may not align with cultural expectations in various ways - our work is to express ourselves anyway

This week's show is with Jonathan Bowden. Jonny made the transition to coaching, consulting and training as his main vocation in 2014 after several years of working in the corporate world.  He had a lifelong calling to growth, evolution and full realisation of the human potential and has combined his passion for personal development and changework with broader business development and strategic consulting roles in both the public and private sector.

His real passion - and the thing that sits at the heart of all of his work - is people. More than anything else, he enjoys supporting and guiding individuals and groups to achieve the kind of personal and professional success that they truly desire, and to feel more content, fulfilled and satisfied as they do so. Not by giving them what they do not have, but by helping them to finally see through what has been getting in the way.

His own personal experience has shown him that there is little that a committed human being cannot achieve, create, recover or come back from. No exceptions. His own work embodies both the internal and external experience necessary to achieve this.

In this show, Jonny and Lian explored expressing your truth, even when it could cost you the approval of others, and the challenges and gifts that living this way can bring.

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:

  • Jonny shared that for him, living from Truth, is a way of being that means expressing his truth even when it might not garner approval, is a choiceless choice - this was already present for him pre-Covid, and this period simply presented a new opportunity to continue deep and further on that path
  • The more we're grounded in our own Truth, the less other people's reactions will compel us to take action... every time we're feeling compelled, it shines a light on where there's work to be done
  • The reason to live this way, devoted to Truth, isn't to get external rewards, though they may well be present, I love how Jonny expressed it  "There is a point where the internal experience becomes the reward in itself"

This week's show is with William Whitecloud. William is a best-selling author and a creative development trainer. His famous publications include The Magician's Way: What It Really Takes to Find Your Treasure, The Last Shaman, and Secrets Of Natural Success; Five Steps to Unlocking Your Genius.’  Through the pandemic, he made his foundational 5 day-training, Create Your Destiny, which he made available for free as a 5-week online course.

He is the founder and chairman of Natural Success  which is a training and mentoring provider.

He now resides in Santa Monica, California where he enjoys time with his family, writing and at the same time developing movies.

In this show, William and Lian went deeper into the power of focus, the two different ways fear shows up and pulls your focus away from where you want it, and how to continue to be a powerful creator even when circumstances are creating limitations, such as during the last 18 months. 

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:

  • Our life indicates where our focus is - but if it isn't where we think we've been focused it's because our subconscious focus is really on lack and fear
  • Once we're focusing on a heart-based vision, fear will still chirp up with obstacles - listening to it and reassuring it works far better than using brute force to shut it up
  • As powerful creators we don't need to be victims to circumstances, we can use any and all circumstances to create with

This week's show is with Ryan Simbai Jenkins. Ryan is a hypnotherapist and coach with an unusual upbringing. He was born in Papua New Guinea, and his first experiences with non-traditional ways of healing came early on in life when his mother (a medical anthropologist) discovered a “lost” indigenous tribe called the Hagahai people. Ryan witnessed first hand how the tribal healers and shamans used forms of Trance to heal people from diseases of the body and mind. This profoundly influenced the course of his life.

This led to an intense fascination and deep study and practice of meditation, self-hypnosis, NLP, shamanism, ceremonial Magick and the many varied psychological modalities of personal development. His love of this field comes from the profound personal transformations he regularly experiences in his own life and those of his clients.

In this episode, we explored the topic of luck, including 4 lucky ways of being in the world, the Magical vs Victim mindset, aligning with who you've chosen to be at a soul level, and priming the unconscious mind to embody these changes.

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 love how Ryan realised the deeper importance of how people are seeing themselves and the world and how this connects to mental wellbeing
  • The four lucky ways of being that Ryan spoke about are: Maximise your chance opportunities: being open to noticing them, listening to lucky hunches: acting on intuition, expect good fortune: creating self fulfilling prophecies, turning bad luck to good: also known as resilience, e.g. look at seeming bad luck as being a "maybe" like the parable we spoke about
  • Two actions for you to take after this show to support you in creating more luck:
    • Commit to having one conversation with new person every week
    • Create a magical working, set an intention for a period of time and keep an amulet or talisman that represents luck with you 24/7 and see what happens

This week's show is with The Infinite Couple: Baba Richard and Sri Namaste. Baba and Sri are spiritual leaders and relationship alchemists, who created a potent pathway to sacred love, business growth, and spiritual alchemy. They have worked privately with some of the most exciting individuals and couples throughout the globe.

The Infinite Couple embraced the Divine Feminine and Masculine and created ultimate Couple Archetyping protocols that has resulted life-changing shifts in radical fulfillment, limitless abundance and self-actualization among individuals and couples. They are currently uplifting couples worldwide through their Couple Unification Prototypes Modality, The Framework of Marriage Mastery, The DYAD: Paradigm, and Power Of Eleven Marriage program, resulting in 11x more powerful relationships with your partner, your business, and consciousness itself.

In today’s show we explored Richard and Namaste's work which is based on the philosophy of men having no inner Feminine and women having no inner Masculine. We explored how they arrived at this controversial position, how we can express our full range - from the yin to the yang, how they see it's beneficial in all kinds of relationships with the opposite gender, what this means in terms of other sexualities or other genders, and lastly, why they see this is something completely beyond a regressive return to stereotypes and 1950s marriages.

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:

  • We might not like the idea that men have no inner Feminine and women have no inner Masculine but it doesn't say anything about whether it's true. I love how they said utility is a measure of truth
  • Men and women both have the whole range of Yin & Yang, we don't need to co-opt the Masculine or Feminine from the other gender in order to be whole
  • This isn't about regressing to the cliched shadow of 1950s marriages: this is about relating in a whole and authentic way, where all parts of us are welcome and valued

Resources and stuff that we spoke about:

  • The Infinite Couple
  • The Sanctum of Feminine Transformation: A living Feminine Embodiment Mystery School and Alchemic Wisdom Tradition for women to learn embodiment and emanation of Femininity
  • The Dyad Paradigm: The DYAD is the most fundamental universal and powerful Unit of measure in the Universe. Nothing sentient is born here without the involvement of this Union. The Newest New in Consciousness, the MOVEMENT that is arising as an expression of Infinite Intelligence playing an Infinitely Individuated Coupling Game.

This week's show is with William Whitecloud. William is a best-selling author and a creative development trainer. His famous publications include The Magician's Way: What It Really Takes to Find Your Treasure, The Last Shaman, and Secrets Of Natural Success; Five Steps to Unlocking Your Genius. Through the pandemic, he made his foundational 5 day-training, Create Your Destiny, which he made available for free as a 5-week online course.

He is the founder and chairman of Natural Success which is a training and mentoring provider.

He now resides in Santa Monica, California where he enjoys time with his family, writing and at the same time developing movies.

In this show, William and Lian spoke about William's study and creation of a system of magic that allows people to powerfully create their reality in alignment with their heart - aka their highest good, the importance of knowing your heart-based vision, and the difference between perception and intuition.

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:

  • William's amazing story of being incredibly ill and then miraculously recovering is such a wonderful example of the power of our focus. If focus created him being close to death to being in great health, what can you create with it?
  • As William said, so much of our focus is actually happening below our conscious awareness - what's held in our subconscious is the real mastermind and requires real awareness to understand.
  • Understanding how our intuition is constantly speaking to us and being able to be in innocence (in no sense) is the way to be able to hear it and act on it rather than always needing to know and make sense of the world.

This week's show is with my fourth-time guest, the amazing James Tripp, an internationally recognised and respected educator, consultant and coach in the fields of personal transformation, hypnosis, influential communication and personal efficacy. Working from an eclectic background including philosophy, music, mentalism, martial arts, movement culture and NLP, James is also the developer of the critically acclaimed Hypnosis Without Trance approach to hypnosis.

Beyond his work with private clients, James runs open workshops internationally, with his London and UK based workshops typically drawing students from around the world.

In today’s show we spoke about the kind of Will that is called True Will in magical practice vs being in the flow of non-doing, unconscious consumption and beating ourselves into compliance with will power.

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:

  • Aleister Crowley said "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law"  but he didn't mean just do whatever you fancy, he meant live according to your True Will, which could also be seen as your soul's will or Divine Will.
  • We can either be the small c or capital C creator of our reality... many forms of spirituality gives us the understanding that we are the creator of our reality, we truly become the Creator, with a big C, when we learn how to choose what we create
  • Mastering the interplay of our Will and flow is the place that aligned creation happens. I loved James' use of the Chariot card to illustrate how we can dance with this energetic tension.

From July 2021 the making of this show airs live in our Facebook group on the first Thursday at 5pm (UK time) every month. 

In this episode, I...

🌟 Shared what I’ve been up to in the past month (what I’ve been consuming and creating)

🌟 Dived deep into the topic: Sovereignty as a way to stop playing small: You’re not helpless, you’re powerful!

This week's show is with Lucy H. Pearce. Lucy is the author of nine life-changing non-fiction books, including Nautilus Award winners Medicine Woman and Burning Woman, and Creatrix: she who makes. Her writing focuses on women’s healing through archetypal psychology, embodiment and creativity. She is currently working on her next book, She of the Sea.

Her words have been featured internationally in online and print media and featured in Earth Pathways Diary, WeMoon, Divergent Mind and If Women Rose Rooted.

Lucy is the founder of Womancraft Publishing, which publishes paradigm-shifting books by women for women.

The mother of three children, she lives by the Celtic Sea in East Cork, Ireland.

In this show, Lucy and Lian (both autistic women) spoke about neurodivergent women, the unique struggles we face in, how we're like the canary down the mine of a distorted culture that's actually not beneficial for anyone, and how people with neurodivergences have specific, necessary but currently little understood gifts for the world. 

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:

  • Neurodivergent women in particular struggle with a real lack of understanding and diagnosis and therefore we often also have trauma from years of struggling and being bullied that further complicates us discovering our neurodivergence
  • It becomes possible to recognise that all of us are precious, necessary parts of the whole when we take the emphasis off  valuing people purely on their "doing", and particularly the specific kinds of doing deemed worthwhile by our culture, and instead recognise the value of our being
  • If what we spoke about resonated with you then two next steps that could be aligned for you are:
    • Looking at resources, descriptions and tests that are specific to neurodivergent women
    • Finding ways of honouring your needs to allow your nervous system to be relaxed and in flow

This week's show is third with Aidan Wachter. Aidan Wachter has been involved in practical magic since the 1980s. He is an animist and is deeply concerned with the effects of modern Western life-ways on the human animal, on both physical and spiritual levels. Aidan views a living magical practice as a path to heal many of the problems we face today and a way of being that is intrinsic to the creatures we are. He is the author of Six Ways: Approaches & Entries to Practical Magic and Weaving Fate: Hypersigils, Changing the Past & Telling True Lies.

​In this show we explored creating your life with magic and specifically through the lens of shadow work and personal mythology.

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:

  • We're all creating our lives through story, whether we're aware of it or not - for most of us, without doing work, that story will be an old, fear-based one
  • Shadow work is about making conscious those parts of us that have been held outside of our awareness but have been running our lives
  • A massive clue to where we have shadow is to notice when we are triggered - that is when an old story is alive and telling us that benign things are threatening
  • Shadow work comes in many forms such as Jungian and shamanism - ultimately they're all about integrating the hidden parts of us back into the system
  • Then comes the really fun part - creating our new myth... who is that, how do they live, how do they feel, what do they wear? And instilling that into our reality via archetypes, decrees/charms, hypersigils and more
  • Finally I loved what Aidan said: "Magic is pulling real rabbits out of metaphorical hats"

This week's show is with Marcela Widrig, founder of Fierce Embodiment. Marcela teaches women to un-do old beliefs, hurts and fears, and the way they limit you in your life today. She trained extensively with the Grinberg Method® for over 18 years, and continued her development with Embodied Movement training, Body-mind Centering®, Embodied Flow™ yoga and Motion Theatre®. This combination of somatic bodywork, movement training, breath and expressive arts has given her a rich variety of body-centered tools to guide clients through trauma and emotional challenges, to reach those un-met places we all have inside of us.  She offers a 4-month signature course, called Shifting Shame: An Embodied Journey to Freedom and monthly movement series and workshops.

In this show we spoke about Marcela's work around understanding how shame is held in body, and how by working through this, we can reclaim power, joy, freedom, expression, choices.

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:

  • In order to integrate what's been held in shame we have to include the body - given that's where shame is held, how could it be another way?
  • Because being in connection with our shame is too hard, we will have mechanisms to protect from feeling it - so the shame of our shame can be the first place to start instead
  • To take a step on this journey, notice your chronic reactions: what do you constantly find yourself doing?  That is a door. Then notice how it shows up in your body, and see if you plant your feet on the ground, breathe and move into the experience.

​In this show we explored what magic is and how to begin your own magical practice.

It’s such a brilliant introduction to listeners who are new to real magic but also those who already have a practice will likely hear something fresh in this conversation because Aidan brings such a fresh approach.

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 love Aidan's view that magic is the relationship we have with the field (manifest and unmanifest reality)
  • Don't feel you have to adopt a whole magical tradition lock, stock and barrel... see what magic means to you and what you're drawn to
  • Start with a few simple practices and then adjust and play with different intentions
  • Start with a simple offering ritual: offer food, water, incense to your allies, speak out your intention, after you've created a relationship - ask for their help and see what happens.

This week's show is with Tim Corcoran, who is the founder of Purpose Mountain. Tim offers Nature Based Purpose Guidance to support people with a love for wild nature who feel a deep yearning and a burning desire to discover their purpose.
 
Tim is a leader of men’s groups, holistic rites of passage for boys & men, and wilderness vision quests.
 
Healing the cultural rift between the mainstream and indigenous cultures, transformational consciousness work, the spiritual journey, ancestral work, deep nature connection, family and health are all deep commitments in his life.
 
Tim is a heart centered father of two brilliant boys and husband to a magnificent wife, and lives in pristine Sandpoint, Idaho, USA.
 
In this show we spoke about how boys in this modern culture lack the guidance and initiation required to become healthy men, how this is in contrast to how humans have evolved and what parents can do to create rites of passage for their boys.
 
We were joined by a special guest star... my son, Felix, who was the instigator of this conversation and had questions of his own that he wanted to ask Tim.
 
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:

  • Between the ages of 12-14, so much is changing for a male human being in terms of the brain and hormones, there's a yearning to know and test themselves and be met by someone who can guide them in that testing. Without having the right initiation guidance, boys will push edges in ways that are potentially destructive to themselves, their families and communities.
  • Boys taking part in guided initiation - by another party, not the parents - gives them the opportunity to discover themselves and their unique expression and bring those gifts back to their communities in a way that can be received and valued.
  • The difference it makes to boys who have journeyed through initiation can and does change the path they would have walked - and an initiation is only ever as good as the cultural container it's held in. We all need true community.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Do what you love - not just in terms of enjoying the creation but also creating what you would enjoy consuming.
  • Our relationship to our creativity is something we can choose to transform and expand, just like anything else. And just like with other transformation, accountability and feedback can be incredibly helpful.
  • Create in a place such as a social media platform that you actually want to spend time in - just like you'd choose to live in a country you actually like!

This week's show is with Dr David Luke. David is Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Greenwich, UK, where he has been teaching an undergraduate course on the Psychology of Exceptional Human Experience since 2009, and he is also Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Psychedelic Research, Imperial College London, and Lecturer on the MSc Consciousness, Spirituality and Transpersonal Psychology for Alef Trust and Liverpool John Moores University.

His research focuses on transpersonal experiences, anomalous phenomena and altered states of consciousness, especially via psychedelics, having published more than 100 academic papers in this area, including ten books, most recently Otherworlds: Psychedelics and Exceptional Human Experience (2nd ed., 2019).

When he is not running clinical drug trials with LSD, conducting DMT field experiments or observing apparent weather control with Mexican shamans he directs the Ecology, Cosmos and Consciousness salon at the Institute of Ecotechnics, London, and is a cofounder and director of Breaking Convention: International Conference on Psychedelic Consciousness.

He has given over 300 invited public lectures and conference presentations; won teaching, research and writing awards; organised numerous festivals, conferences, symposia, seminars, retreats, expeditions, pagan cabarets and pilgrimages; and has studied techniques of consciousness alteration from South America to India, from the perspective of scientists, shamans and Shivaites. He lives life on the edge, of Sussex, UK.

In this show we spoke about how we can use altered states of consciousness to receive ideas, solutions to problems and rich guidance for life, how those states are known and valued across the world and throughout time and it's only in modern culture that we've lost that knowledge, and finally how they're much more accessible than you might think. There's no need to fly across the world to take plant medicine unless that's what you really want to do.

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:

  • Your birthright is to be polyphasic and you can reach altered states of consciousness in many ways including hypnotic trance, psychedelics plant medicines, drumming, dreams and dance.
  • These states provide an extremely valuable, and yet much misunderstood in modern culture, as a portal to receiving new ideas, solutions and healing. They have been understood as valuable throughout history and across the world until fairly recently, and also by some of the greatest thinkers and creators in the last century. It really is the secret sauce behind some of the most incredible things humans have done.
  • You can use your dreams as a powerful state of consciousness by setting the intention for revelatory dreams, writing them down every morning, and noticing symbols and patterns that are showing up for you. The longer you do this, the more you'll notice what they're providing for you.

The making of this show also airs live on YouTube on the first Friday of every month, usually at 11am (UK time). You can check out the replay of the Live making of this episode on Youtube here.

In this episode, Lian dived deep into The power of the Feminine in leadership. She covered what she means by the Feminine and how that can be expressed in a leadership role. Lian also highlighted what’s lacking in the majority of leadership today, which is role models expressing sovereignty. The lack of true adults in leadership (regardless of gender) is stifling so much of how we live in modern society, from intimate relationships, parenting, community cohesion, politics, and in the boardroom.

Lian ended with some suggestions for next steps you can take if you're called to this path of embodying the Feminine in leadership.

This week's show is with Dr Stephania Sciamano. Stephania is an Energy Surgeon devoted to Truth and Embodiment of Your Rich Genius.

She spent 9 years in private natural medicine practice before working exclusively with ambitious men and woman to increase Wealth, Vitality, and Energy in all its forms.

The successful clients who come into her practice are powerful experienced Healers, Creatives, and Magicians – yet the illusive cap on their success is frustrating the hell out of them.

She believes that powerful people experience a specific set of mental and physical symptoms at higher levels of success...which creates an energetic cap on their “Havingness”.

…and conventional solutions don’t work because they don’t address Wealth Consciousness, Masculine/Feminine Dynamics, the Dark Side of your Power, or how this relates to Genius. Her protocol assesses, arrests, and then reverses the slide!

Her clients calm their nerves, lose their mental slumps, become attractive again to themselves and their partners, and create reliable windfalls of cash –in their specific genius – without the crash.

In this show we spoke about Stephania's rather naughty-sounding philosophy on the power of relating to God as both father and lover and the deep gifts that provides. I love this show - such a rich and juicy one!

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:

  • If we see there's pure love Consciousness, within that there is Masculine Love Consciousness (ie God) and Feminine Love Consciousness (ie Goddess)
  • Most women in our culture have an excess of Yang and a depletion of Yin, which means they're unavailable to be fully provided and penetrated by the Masculine in all its forms, including men, money and God.
  • I love Stephania's suggestion of finding ways to enter into relationship with the embodied archetypes of father and lover and the various ways these can be manifested as both Gods (e.g. Zeus) or men (e.g. Jason Momoa!)
  • Allow yourself to have the deep Feminine desire to be provided to and penetrated, it's only from there that it can happen.

This week's show is with Phil Goddard... when he interviewed me for a change! Phil had an intuitive nudge to reach out to me and ask if I'd like him to interview me about my father, my childhood, my relationship and the gifts and lessons I received from his life and his death. I said a big, fat YES and the rest is history!

A bit about Phil, who has been on the show at least a couple of times before... Phil helps business owners and leaders enjoy their personal relationships as much as they enjoy their work, creating easy, prosperous and loving personal & professional relationships. He is an internationally renowned life & relationship coach, speaker, leadership consultant, and lover of life and humanity.  A published author, he is also the host of both The Coaching Life and Naked Hearts Podcasts.  His work centres around transforming relationships and leadership through developing a deeply grounded understanding of the principles behind our human experience and the nature of how our experience of life is created.

In this show, as well as speaking about my father, I asked the members of the Primal Happiness fb group if they had any questions about death that they'd like us to explore in this conversation. Their questions were incredibly varied, including:

  • “What are your insights on our capacity to create space, trust, and connection around death (especially when the individual that’s died was divisive in life)?”
  • “Why if time is not linear do we mainly hear about past lives and not future lives?”
  • “When we feel closer to a loved one that’s passed what is it being felt?”
  • “If messages are received from people that have passed who/what is the message actually from?”
  • “Why might we fear ghosts and is this fear hiding something from us or holding us back in some way?”
  • “What is the egos role in death, if any at all?”
  • “Psychedelics hint to the shedding of ego prior to death. If so, is there a more limited role for the ego while alive? What does that practice look like?”
And I think we answered them all!
 
This was an incredibly rich conversation and I will be forever grateful to Phil for suggesting it and then providing me with such a beautiful, loving space to explore this topic which clearly means a lot to me. What a man he is - truly a gift to the world!

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

This week's show is with Dave Burns who is a coach, angel investor, and essayist. With a background in relational work, partnered meditation, mindful business training and classical philosophy, his work today centres around the interplay between ancient wisdom and modern practicality. A very happy husband, he lives in Costa Rica with his wife, in a small town where the jungle meets the sea.

In this show we spoke about the hidden energies of financial exchange, Dave dived deep into sooo many money questions such as: why is it so challenging to charge money for a service-based business? Why does it seem so easy to make money after a certain point? Why is it that I have so much trouble saving? Why does it vanish? How do I cultivate consistent habits without being controlling, restrictive, self-abusive?

Ultimately, this episode did an incredible job of illuminating the money landscape so we can choose to cultivate a conscious relationship with it.

dogs barking x 2: 11.44mins , 13.09 , possibly another!

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Money is a store of human life because life is scarce - taking life force is usually described as consuming or eating therefore taking someone's money is like cannibalism
  • Of course we will have resistance to eating and being eaten by other humans so it's no wonder we can have so much resistance around money!
  • Indigenous cultures have a conscious and sacred relationship of the thing they're consuming -  we can begin to create a similar relationship by giving thanks and praise to the things you're eating and the lives that brought it to you
  • Receiving a lot of money can feel uncomfortable and greedy when we aren't bringing the reverence and consciousness to it
  • I love Dave's suggestion of creating an alternative to the loving kindness meditation: (may I be peaceful, may you be peaceful, may you be well)...  May I be consumed, may you be devoured, may you be received

This week's show is with Aidan Wachter. Aidan has been involved in practical magic since the 1980s.  He is an animist and is deeply concerned with the effects of modern Western life-ways on the human animal, on both physical and spiritual levels. Aidan views a living magical practice as a path to heal many of the problems we face today and a way of being that is intrinsic to the creatures we are. He is the author of Six Ways: Approaches & Entries to Practical Magic and Weaving Fate: Hypersigils, Changing the Past & Telling True Lies.

​In this show we explored the intersection of rewilding and magic - or how they're actually two sides of the same coin, or "one stone" as Aidan says. Given the power of both rewilding and magic, bringing the understanding of them together in this way is such an important and helpful conversation for anyone who wants to reclaim their power. I absolutely loved it - I hope you do to.

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:

  • Indigenous - ie wild - cultures across the world and throughout history evolved with magic being part of the worldview and way of relating to themselves and everything around them. Aidan actually says that he sees magic as the defining root of human culture.
  • Typically modern magic hasn't included an understanding of the importance of rewilding - therefore unless someone has already been on the rewilding path, any magical practice will be  happening over the top of domesticated ways of thinking and being.
  • If we were raised in wild ways we would have been guided to live in a way that was in alignment with our deepest self (which we could describe as the soul or True Will) but those of us who were raised in this modern culture will need to rewild to release the dreams, visions, ideas and fears that aren't native to us
  • For those of us who are already on the rewilding path, the understanding and practice of magic provides us with the power to create positive change in the world that is in alignment with our deepest self

This week's show is with Dean Radin PhD, who is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Science (IONS), Distinguished Professor of Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), and a science adviser for several startup companies. His original career track as a concert violinist shifted into science after earning a BSEE degree in electrical engineering (magna cum laude, with honours in physics) from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and then a Masters in electrical engineering and PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. For a decade he worked on advanced R&D at AT&T Bell Laboratories and GTE Laboratories. For over three decades he has been engaged in research on the nature and capacities of consciousness. Before joining the research staff at IONS in 2001, he held appointments at Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, and SRI International, where he worked on a classified program of psychic espionage, now commonly known as StarGate.

​He is author or co-author of over 300 scientific, technical, and popular articles, four dozen book chapters, two technical books, and four popular books including the Scientific and Medical Network's 1997 book award, The Conscious Universe (HarperOne, 1997), Entangled Minds (Simon & Schuster, 2006), the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award, Supernormal (Random House, 2013), and Real Magic (Penguin Random House, 2018). Entangled Minds, Supernormal and Real Magic are available as paperback, e-books, and audio books. These books have been translated into Spanish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Romanian, Latvian, Turkish, Czech, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Arabic.

​His 100+ academic articles appear in peer-reviewed scientific journals ranging from Foundations of Physics and Physics Essays to Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, Psychological Bulletin, and Psychology of Consciousness. He was featured in a New York Times Magazine feature article; and he has appeared on dozens of television programs around the world. His 500+ interviews and talks have included presentations at Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Columbia, Cambridge (England), Edinburgh (Scotland), The Sorbonne (Paris), University of Padova (Italy), and University of Allahabad (India) . His invited talks for industries have included MerckGoogle, Johnson & Johnson, and Rabobank, and his government talks have included the US Navy and US Army, the Naval Postgraduate School, DARPA, the Indian Council of Philosophical Research (India), the International Center for Leadership and Governance (Malaysia), and the Australian Davos Connection  (Australia).  In 2017 he was named one of the 100 most inspiring people in the world by the German magazine, OOOM, and as of 2018 his filmography on IMDB lists 18 documentaries he's appeared in.

Note: Dean is not a therapist, nor a psychic or a paranormal investigator. He is a scientist who studies psychic phenomena. If you are disturbed by psychic experiences, he recommends that you contact a psychologist or psychiatrist knowledgeable about these experiences. Another resource is the Spiritual Emergence Network.

​In this show we explored Dean's incredible life's work on the topic of real magic! We explored the reasons magic has been so put into shadow in our culture, his scientific studies on this topic and lastly why magic is anything but a fantastical, dreamy, made-up topic - it's actually the most important conversation we could be having as a species right now. This is such a treasure trove of a show - I'm delighted to be able to share it with you.
