“New Frontiers of Psychedelics” with Tania de Jong | #Perspectives Podcast
Welcome to this week's episode of #Perspectives LIVE Today!
Today my extraordinary guest is Tania de Jong, the founder and executive director of Mind Medicine Australia. Tania is listed on the 100 most influential people in psychedelics in the world for her remarkable work in a field that is maybe to some of us, a little left of centre and that is working to ensure that some psychedelics, namely psilocybin and MDMA become legalised within Australia for therapeutic purposes.
This is a topic that I find truly fascinating. Mind Medicine Australia is a registered charity acting as a central node for regulatory approved and research, their work is wholly clinical. Tania became interested in the resurgence in psychedelic research field after searching for ways to manage her own mental health and wellbeing. We talk about this in the episode, she explains and walks us through her first psychedelic experience and how it transformed her with the support of her partner, Peter, she set out on a quest to have a therapeutic experience but being able to do this in a safe and legal setting, which around the world, is not that easy to accomplish, have to experiencing this life-changing experience.
Now she is on a mission to help alleviate the suffering caused by mental illness in Australia that she truly believes is not necessary. In this conversation you will hear about the statistics and what has been achieved in clinical trials around the world and how these medicines, combined with therapy have been having a profound impact on people who are suffering from PTSD, depression, anxiety, even eating disorders.
Open your mind to this conversation, its truly mind blowing.

Lisa Forrest - Diving In The Deep | #Perspectives Podcast
I’m so pleased to introduce my latest podcast guest, Australian Olympian, media personality and author, the amazing Lisa Forrest!
Lisa and I dive into her young life as an inspiring captain of the Australian swimming team to the 1980 Moscow Olympics – one of a small band of high profile athletes that led the campaign to defy Malcolm Fraser's Federal Government in its attempt to support the US-led boycott of those Games, maintaining that the Olympics was about peace, not politics and chose to follow their dream.
During this time she was subject to abuse and death threats. It’s an amazing story. Lisa has had so many career highlights - she pioneered a path for sportswomen into broadcasting in Australia and at the age of 22, became the first woman to anchor a national sports program in 1986. She has hosted both radio and television programs on a range of topics well beyond sport and even spent some time as an actor.
After experiencing burn-out more than once, Lisa struggled wth a feeling that she was ‘Miss Never-enough’. In order to assess her life she took some time to sort out ‘the trouble with her thinking’ and assess how that ‘trouble’ was getting in the way of the joy in her life. The result of her reflection is her her wonderful book ‘Glide’. I know you will enjoy this conversation as we talk about not only Lisa’s brilliant career but also the importance of self-compassion and mindfulness.
Dr Schwartz - You're Greater Than The Sum Of Your Parts | #Perspectives Podcast
Another week, another fabulous podcast guest! This week my episode is super exciting as I drill down into Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy or ‘parts therapy’ with the founder, family therapist Dr Richard Schwartz. Dr Schwartz is an important therapist who has helped many through trauma with his work. He has been in demand and recently featured podcasts with Tim Ferris and Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP podcasts discussing his therapy model.
IFS is mind-blowing to say the least - during this podcast, I was lucky to have Dr Schwartz apply his therapy to me – it was an amazing experience, and I am so glad to share it with you!
IFS has become a widely used form of psychotherapy, particularly with trauma. It is a non-pathologizing technique that is evidence based and grounded in compassion, trust, honesty, and encouragement. It invites clients to acknowledge each unique part of themselves and to recognize the strengths and weaknesses within them and how they influence behaviours and emotions. Stay on until then end when we cover the ways IFS can be used in a Daily Practice to bring us closer to our truer self’ and how IFS is a beautiful, gentle, compassionate, loving, meditation.
Don’t miss out on this enlightening and intriguing conversation –knowledge of your ‘parts ‘will ensure you never see anyone the same again.

The Man Behind The Myth | #PERSPECTIVES with Michael Gerber
Welcome to this episode of Perspectives. Am so thrilled to introduce today's guest to you. You may have heard a little bit of his voice before you may have recognized his voice, and I'm not going to reveal his name because I truly believe nearly all of our viewers will know this man have read his book and hopefully be applying some of the messages that are in it.
He is an extraordinary, innovative, extraordinary human being. He's so warm and generous. He's an entrepreneur. He's definitely a thought leader. He's the author of so far and counting 21 books, including a mega selling business book that really is considered probably, the most important, if not one of the most important business books in the world ever written, he published it in back in 1986, he did a review of it in 1995, and it has been selling as a bestseller since [then, which is incredible. The Wall Street Journal named this book, the number one business book of all time.
It sold millions of copies. Its expertise has been applied throughout businesses throughout the world in 29 languages, the world's number one, small business guru because of his series of books. And since founding his organization and a number of different companies, he has served in excess of a hundred thousand small business clients, helping them successfully transform their business, including my businesses.
His dream is to transform the state of small business worldwide. This is of course, Michael Gerber. He's a fabulous human being. We met way back in 2006. We were at a convention together. I had a very baby stage. He had a much, a biggest stage and I managed to catch him just as he was going on stage. And I shared with him a challenge I was having.
Straight out having just met me. He said, you need to get over your narcissistic urge to be on stage, being the only one who can deliver that thing that needs to stop right now. Then he swept off onto stage and I thought all hell, Michael Gerber, there he goes. Then later I got into a smaller room. I paid the upsell.
I got into a smaller ring. That was just 20 of us. And I was the only one who asked questions. I apologized at one point for taking up the whole time, but I had Michael Gerber for an hour. So his book, the E-Myth, is obviously the book I was speaking about . The E-Myth and the message he gave me has been the backbone, the vision, the guiding posts for how I've built my coaching businesses.
In this fabulous conversation we will talk about:
[00:03:44] How I've replaced myself in my businesses with Michael Gerber and his message in the E-Myth.
[00:08:13] How most people in businesspeople start not even knowing ‘the game’ they signed up for
[00:11:00] We unpack the E-Myth and talk about the principles of the book
[00:18:14] The McDonald’s epiphany and how Michael came to create The E-Myth – and his mission to transform the state of small business worldwide
[00:28:08] The fatal assumption, the assumption that if we understand the technical work, that somehow, we'll have a business model,
[00:30:29] How transformation is the key to business success
[00:32:55] How The Coaching Institute was built on the E-Myth model – I unpack exactly how I followed The EMyth Model to create a multimillion dollar business
[00:46:04] Radical U, Gerber’s new school, for awakening the entrepreneur within ordinary people.
: [00:53:27] The importance of systems and trust.
[00:56:11] That the entrepreneur is actually four distinct people & the Dreaming Room
[01:06:17] Why it is important to apply what works instead of letting your ego take over and thinking you're going to know best.
[01:10:26] Michael’s legacy
I actually took notes on things said in this podcast Incase I forget any of it. I want to remember all of it! It makes an insane amount of sense. I can’t wait to get on with being the compassionate person that I naturally am, but this time I will think more about where I finish and others begin so that I am not fatigued and will be able to be even more present for them. X
There aren’t many people you find that can get this type of strength in truth to the core of what really matters. I love the conversational style of this podcast, it’s classy, it’s inspiring and it’s real. I’m really enjoying what I find my mind thinks about after I’ve listened, and I’m finding myself being more present in moments of my day. Thankyou for creating this and bring on more adventures in perspectives!
What the world needs now
I’m so excited about this podcast. There are many groundbreaking ideas explored throughout, so many real examples of how to apply models and frameworks. Whilst society is going deeper into “them vs us”, it’s refreshing to know that there are people who really want to bring it back to community. We all need more training on compassion, empathy, good faith, self awareness and conflict resolution so we can foster real connection. I believe podcast like this have the power to really heal the world.
