    Lifeboat: Navigating Unexpected Career Change and Disruption

    29/10/2020 Duration: 55min

    The coronavirus has created a huge disruption in our workplaces and in our lives. Many people have lost their jobs or their physical place of work. Old ways of coping with change and disruption are starting to wear thin. Just when we thought the virus was getting under control, we discovered surges of new cases and deaths around the world. The hope that things will go back to normal is diminishing. In fact, we may need to think about a new normal. My guest learned how to do that when she chose to leave her successful and financially lucrative career because it left her feeling anxious and depleted at the end of the day. With her values out of sync with her career, she chose to shift her mind-set from self-interest to concern about others and how to survive serious challenges together. Please join us Thursday to learn how to assess and solve problems proactively and cultivate emotional agility to respond authentically and strategically under pressure for the good and well-being of all.

  • Reconnecting with Your Estranged Adult Child: Heal Yourself and Your Relationship

    Reconnecting with Your Estranged Adult Child: Heal Yourself and Your Relationship

    22/10/2020 Duration: 56min

    Ten million Gen X and Baby Boomer parents are estranged from their adult children. Estrangement is different from just not talking to or seeing each other. It means your child treats you like a stranger. The severity ranges from being totally cutoff and never communicating to emotional disconnection even if you see each other to on-and-off estrangement. Parents feel guilt, shame, and sadness, which can turn into frustration and anger. While each situation is unique, there are practical and effective techniques all parents can use to understand and heal these painful breaches. Reconciliation is a slow process that can lead to renewed relations. Because relationships are about two people, we cannot control the outcome. We can, however, choose to heal ourselves by releasing the guilt, shame, and pain and finding self-love and wholeness. Please join us Thursday to learn how to heal yourself and take steps to heal your relationship with your adult child.

  • Big Boys Should Cry: The New Model of Sacred Masculinity

    Big Boys Should Cry: The New Model of Sacred Masculinity

    15/10/2020 Duration: 54min

    Boys are raised to ignore their emotions or risk being viewed as weak or “unmanly.” This is creating a mental health crisis among our young men. Even before COVID-19, suicide and violence among males was increasing and boys are 3 times more likely to abuse drugs. As women are beginning to allow themselves to be more powerful in the world outside the home, including politics, it is time for males to discover their softer side and allow themselves to feel and express the whole range of human emotions. By inhibiting the emotions that aren’t considered to be “manly,” they are preventing themselves from feeling the highest forms of love, intimacy and joy. It is time for men and women to come into the full spectrum of what it means to be human and experience both their masculine and feminine qualities because in fact, we are not one or the other. We all need to come into a new kind of balance that allows us to be fully human. Please join us Thursday to learn more about Sacred Masculinity.

    Healing from Childhood Emotional Pain and/or Family Trauma

    08/10/2020 Duration: 56min

    When I learned a close friend was divorcing several years ago, I said: “But I thought you had it all together.” My wise friend said, “If you think that about anyone, it’s because you don’t know them well enough.” We are all good at suffering silently while we put on a smile for others, pretending everything is great. This pandemic has made it increasingly difficult for us to continue to pretend. We don’t have our usual distractions and our fears, worries, and buried emotions are coming to the surface. My guest is a Black Indian woman born into a family legacy of highly gifted healers from the Native American Iroquois tribe and the Nigerian Nri Kingdom. She went through a transformative healing journey from deep trauma, near-suicide, and serious emotional pain to connecting with God and embracing her spiritual inheritance to heal herself and help others do the same. Please join us Thursday to learn how you too can reconnect with lost parts of yourself and heal your emotional pain.

  • Words that Incite Violence and How to Confront the Perpetrators

    Words that Incite Violence and How to Confront the Perpetrators

    01/10/2020 Duration: 54min

    President Trump, like Hitler before him, uses 12 specific forms of communication that typically precede acts of mass violence up to and including genocide. My guest, Helio Fred Garcia, has documented these forms of speech and the instances where Trump’s dangerous rhetoric has motivated lone wolves to commit violence and murder. Garcia writes: (Ten days before the 2018 midterm elections,) “In a single week ... two separate terror attacks took place. One killed eleven people at worship in a synagogue. One failed but had targeted a dozen Trump critics with mail bombs. In both cases the perpetrators justified their actions by quoting Trump language. One of them, the mail bomber, described his conversion from being apolitical to being “a soldier in the war between right and left” that resulted from his several years in Trump’s orbit.” Please join us Thursday to learn how to recognize the 12 patterns of dangerous speech early, hold the perpetrators accountable, and prevent violence.

  • The Mindful Place of Calm

    The Mindful Place of Calm

    24/09/2020 Duration: 48min

    In 2004, Paul took some time off between engineering jobs in Silicon Valley to decompress from a stressful year. His usual technique of working out in the gym until he was exhausted didn’t keep him calm throughout the day. Instead of feeling defeated, he began a search for what would work. He started to meditate again, which helped, but it wasn’t sufficient. So Paul developed his own techniques creating a system that allowed him to make practical and trackable changes in his anxiety and perceptions of himself and the work around him. As he writes: “Who we are today does not have to be who we want to be tomorrow. We can change. … Remember that the words willingness, tenacity, and fortitude were not chosen idly.” Paul changed by learning how to create an inner space of calm in the gap between negative thoughts and actions. Please join us Thursday to discover how you can achieve a feeling of tranquil centeredness and turn tension into lasting joy and peace.

    17/09/2020 Duration: 54min

    Overwhelm, confusion and stress are the new norm, but they do not have to be. There is a lot we cannot control. We can, however, choose to use this time to take a deep look inward to reconnect with our inner knowing, realign with our true nature, and achieve freedom from the inside out. My guest used her own struggle with self-worth, fear of rejection, shame and blame to create a revolutionary process to help others assess their current emotional and mental state and reframe it. With her process, you learn to accept your emotions without fighting or judging them, realize the story you’re telling yourself, objectively evaluate the situation, define and focus your intent, and finally refocus your intent based upon your new perspective. Like a kaleidoscope, you can take the same pieces and make different designs. Please join us Thursday to discover how you can take life’s inevitable obstacles and rearrange the pieces to bring you peace and clarity.

    10/09/2020 Duration: 55min

    In these troubling times, everyone needs uplifting. That’s why Smile Project Louisville is now National, and I believe it will become International soon. Michael Ray writes: “Through the inspiration of my non-verbal daughter, Smile Project Louisville is a movement to promote small acts that influence attitude & behavior….through smiling and acts of kindness. Be so happy that when others see you, they become happy too.” Smiling is a Universal way to communicate love, joy, and happiness. We don’t have to speak the same language or even be physically close. A smile uplifts those who smile and those who see the smile. It’s free, and it changes you on the inside, bringing more ease when you need it the most. Michael has experienced enough trauma in his life to cause most people to become depressed or bitter. Instead he has chosen to uplift himself and spread the joy to others. Please join us Thursday to learn how you, too, can start smiling more and spread happiness to others.

  • Life Design for Women: Conscious Living as a Force for Positive Change

    Life Design for Women: Conscious Living as a Force for Positive Change

    03/09/2020 Duration: 54min

    We are in the process of great change. Our world has been dominated by the male way of doing and being, and women have had to fit into that model. If we wanted a career, we had to ignore our natural ways of being in the world. In fact, most of us don’t know ourselves very well because we have been busy meeting other people’s expectations and allowing them to define us. Women are inherently more cooperative, compassionate, empathetic, nurturing, creative and peace oriented. Those qualities are not valued in the workplace or outside of the home, but they are what is needed now if we are to solve our current global problems and create the world we want to live in. My guest has a process for weeding out the thoughts and actions that block your true purpose while helping you nurture your authentic self, rather than living your life through the dreams and fears of others. Please join us Thursday to learn about this hands-on guide to reclaim your power and become a force for positive change.

  • The Mindset of Maybe

    The Mindset of Maybe

    27/08/2020 Duration: 55min

    We fear change, yet the only certainty is change. No wonder, even before the pandemic, we were a world consumed by anxiety, fear, worry, stress and depression. We have been living in fear of the very thing that is unavoidable. I’m not sure where in the history of civilization we took a wrong turn and decided that we should fear the unknown. What I do know is that we have the power to change our attitude and embrace uncertainty with hope, optimism and the excitement of possibilities which could lead to more joy than we have ever experienced. Fear of the unknown drains our energy and keeps us stuck in patterns that feel comfortable and safe but in truth, keep us stuck and limit our potential. If we don’t believe in a better future, we won’t develop the strength, courage, grit and resilience to create it. Please join us Thursday to learn how the mind-set of “maybe” can reduce stress and worry and help us achieve all that is possible in our lives.

    20/08/2020 Duration: 54min

    We are in a critical period of change. Crises in our health, economy and ecology are all part of this transformation. Ervin Laszlo believes the solution requires our learning to think and act differently and to honor the kind of experience that reconnects us to the source. He writes: “We are empathetic and collaborative beings; not uncaring and destructive competitors. We are one; our separateness is an illusion. We are intrinsically oriented toward wholeness and love and are linked to one another and to the universe…The time has come to allow the experience of our own fundamental nature to rise to our consciousness and change our thinking and our life. The time has come for you and for me, and for a critical mass of sensitive and responsible people, to reconnect to the source. Then we will change our thinking and our life—and change the course of history.” Please join us Thursday to learn how to reconnect with the universe even if you don’t consider yourself spiritual or religious.

    Kickass Recovery: From Your First Year Clean to the Life of Your Dreams

    13/08/2020 Duration: 53min

    Millions of people are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Getting sober is easier than staying sober. Billy Manas says: “Myself, and many people I knew, relapsed shortly after celebrating a year of sobriety. I always felt like this was because in 12-step programs, all of the support and fanfare tends to go away after the first year celebration. The only way I was able to stay with it for so long this time around was because I created my own fanfare after my celebration. I set up goals and pursued dreams in a very meaningful way.” Billy believes when we’re obsessive about what we want and why we want it, the “how” emerges on its own. “Getting in touch with our dreams that have been deferred for most of our adult lives, and seeing them come true through our own effort, goes beyond fun. It is the purest joy one can experience,” Please join us Thursday to learn how to stay sober and live a life of joy by tracking goals, inspiration, asking for help, gratitude, service, humility and meditation.

    06/08/2020 Duration: 55min

    COVID-19 has been especially hard on people who want to find a partner. We can meet people safely with proper precautions. Loneliness and desperation, however, could lead to settling for someone who is not right for you. Because this 21-Day process generated such wonderful results, it was passed around quietly from friend to friend until Kac made it into a book. As the love of her life wrote: “Everyone in and out of a relationship should do this process. 21 days is a small investment for a lifetime of happiness. Look what I got!” Kac describes this as “a spiritual and psychological process of self-evaluation, emotional and mental clarity, internal examination, faith in yourself and trust in the power of the Universe to deliver exactly what you claim.” Everyone who commits to the full 21-day process is successful in finding the love of their life. That’s a powerful claim backed up by experience. Please join us to learn more about the process and how it works, even during COVID-19.

    The Shaman's Mind: Huna Wisdom to Change Your Life

    02/07/2020 Duration: 56min

    Indigenous peoples foretold the upheaval and chaos we are experiencing now as part of a worldwide shift into higher consciousness. Leaders, teachers, healers and lightworkers are being prepared to usher in, as Jonathan says, “new ways of being—ways that include cooperation, generosity, sustainability, compassion, and love.” To do so, we must first attend to our own healing. Jonathan explains “…Shamanism is not ‘spooky’ or ‘other-worldly.’ It is a practical, down-to-earth, spiritual path that was designed to help us learn to live and love well.” It helps us transform our thoughts, intentions and beliefs into ways to heal ourselves. We can use these tools to heal trauma, pain and dysfunctional patterns, achieving wholeness, harmony and an openness to love. As co-creators of the world, we then energetically spread the love to others and the world. Please join us Thursday to hear why the current upheaval is important and how we can heal ourselves and the world with powerful Shamanic tools.

  • Thinking for Ourselves: Liberating the Mind

    Thinking for Ourselves: Liberating the Mind

    25/06/2020 Duration: 55min

    “Throughout history, thinkers…have been crippled by an ingrained bias toward their own views and the views of their preferred social groups” writes Dr. Elder. A current example is a popular video on LinkedIn, which supposedly reveals the secret to making a lot of money as a coach during Covid-19. His advice is that since people want certainty, coaches should sell expensive packages guaranteeing people certainty. It makes sense if you don’t think critically about life, business or coaching and if you value making money over integrity and truly helping others. Since the only certainty is that change is inevitable, coaches need to help people develop strategies to let go of what isn’t working for them, be flexible, accept change, go with the flow, and flourish in the midst of the chaos of change by embracing it and discovering the silver linings. Please join us Thursday to learn how, like Socrates, we can live the examined life, even in times of upheaval and doubt.
