    Gabrielle Nancarrow on the courage to be vulnerable

    Gabrielle Nancarrow on the courage to be vulnerable

    There is power in people and places that hold us when we are at our most vulnerable.

    Gabrielle Nancarrow is a birth and pregnancy loss doula, circle holder and the founder of Gather, an inclusive space for women and non-binary people to come together and witness one another's journeys. It's a special place.

    As you'll hear in this conversation, Gabrielle came to this work from a sense of deep inner knowing that the culture and expectations that she was encountering while pregnant were not serving her, and it inspired a shift in her life and career to retrain as a doula to help women and to hold safe spaces.

    This episode centres around about the power of growing quiet to listen to the deep well of wisdom within, of community care and of allowing ourselves to be held by others - particularly when we're at our most vulnerable.

    It's a heartfelt, warm and tender conversation.

    If you'd like to explore Gather's offerings, head to the website at: https://www.gatherwomenspace.com/ or at Instagram at @gatherwomenspace

    And another note here that this episode deals with themes of pregnancy loss and miscarriage, and that this may be challenging for some people to listen to. If you do find this, and want somebody to talk to, you can call Sands at any time. They offer confidential, non-judgemental, compassionate phone support to anybody experiencing grief from the loss of a pregnancy or baby. Their Australian number is 1300 072 637.

    Tom Cronin sees opportunity in crisis

    Tom Cronin sees opportunity in crisis

    Tom Cronin is a meditation teacher, speaker and the founder of The Stillness Project, a global movement to inspire one billion people to sit in stillness, daily.

    Tom is passionate about reducing stress and chaos in people's lives, propelled by his own experiences of crisis after working for 26 years as a bond and swap broker in Sydney - something he likens to a Wolf of Wall Street existence. Tom discovered meditation in the early stages of this career, when the anxiety and chaos he was experiencing hit a crisis point, and it completely transformed his world - both personally and professionally.

    Today Tom is a leading meditation teacher, coach and speaker, and has an unwavering commitment to cultivating calm and promoting a sense of abundance. Tom's dedication to this life-giving work has seen him spend the past seven years working on a documentary and book - called The Portal - an experiential and genre-defining approach to personal change. The Portal asks the question - what would happen if 7 billion people all meditated? How can we really change the world? Could it shift the trajectory of our planet from the current crisis we're in?

    We discuss the science, benefits and potential of meditation, the opportunity within crisis and moving from breakdown to breakthrough.

    Tom is generous in sharing advice and resources - you can download resources through The Portal and read his tips on breaking phone addiction here.

    Enjoy!

    Clare Bowditch silences the inner critic

    Clare Bowditch silences the inner critic

    Clare Bowditch is an ARIA-award winning singer, actress and storyteller, who has touched hundreds of thousands of lives with her heart-stirring work.

    Clare is as beloved as she is successful because she embodies a way of being in the world that is both bold and brave, and beautifully vulnerable.

    And it's this vulnerability that is one of her most treasured gifts. It's evident within her songs, and now it's laid bare in her new book, Your Own Kind of Girl, which details her struggles with her very loud, very destructive inner critic, who has threatened to keep her life very, very small.

    This conversation is for anybody who has an inner critic of their own, who has times where they struggle to believe in themselves, who sometimes has dark days, and yet despite all this knows deep deep down that they are worthy and capable of having an amazing life.

    Our conversation covers:
    - Clare's playful way of working with her inner critic, called Frank
    - What happens with complex grief and the creative life
    - Her breakdown (dubbed a "break through" by her psychologist) and recovery
    - The practical, brilliant and surprising resources that have supported her to live her own amazing life today

    Enjoy!

Listening to you Kayla is like having a cup of coffee with a good friend, nurturing for the mind & soul, whilst inspiring me towards creating a beautiful mindful life. In the past year I have made some huge life changes being inspired by your podcast & I couldn’t be more grateful to you, so thank you!

Happy birthday & look forward to many more birthdays listening. From one of the 1000 x

Just what I needed

I discovered this podcast in the early morning hours, during a very low point. It was just what I needed; providing solace and reminding me of what I forget all too often - my experience in mental health is not a unique experience, but a shared one of human kind. And with that, a weight is lifted. Thank you!
