    How to Succeed in Life: Ideas and Principles They Don’t Teach in School with Ned Grossman

    How to Succeed in Life: Ideas and Principles They Don’t Teach in School with Ned Grossman

    What does success look like? How can we live life to the fullest, remain true to ourselves and be kind to others?



    These are some of the questions I ask my friend, Ned Grossman, author of How to Succeed in Life: Ideas and Principles They Don’t Teach in School. Ned is wise, witty, and committed to keeping things simple and getting things done. As a prolific doer, Ned believes that actions speak louder than words. And in this heartfelt conversation, we talk about love, grief, and finding the courage to live life on your own terms.

    Becoming Beloved with Sarah Kroger

    Becoming Beloved with Sarah Kroger

    How can we learn to love ourselves and treat ourselves more kindly? How can we stop our negative self-talk and start to value our unique qualities and gifts?



    In today’s episode, I explore these questions with Nashville-based singer, songwriter, and Christian worship leader Sarah Kroger. We talk about faith, self-love, and self-acceptance, and Sarah shares the story behind her beautiful song Belovedness, which reminds us that we are all lovable, precious, and perfect just as we are.

    Coming Home to Yourself with Melissa Moore

    Coming Home to Yourself with Melissa Moore

    What does it feel like to come home to yourself?

    How can you access your soul’s inner strength and live life with more compassion, grace, and joy?

    These are the questions I explore with my guest Dr. Melissa Moore, the co-founder of Karuna Training and author of The Diamonds Within Us: Uncovering Brilliant Sanity Through Contemplative Psychology. Melissa has been following the Buddhist path for over forty years and has extensive experience educating others about the benefits of meditation, mindfulness, and loving-kindness. Today, we discuss how to stop looking for happiness outside ourselves, and Melissa shares the techniques she uses to quiet the ego, connect to the heart, and become aware of the strength and wisdom within us.

    Walking Deep with Abigail Prout

    Walking Deep with Abigail Prout

    What does it mean to walk deep? And why does connecting with Nature, Self, and Spirit make us feel happier, healthier, and more fulfilled?

    These are some of the issues I explore with my guest Abigail Prout, who wrote her first anthology of poetry, Walk Deep, during the Covid pandemic. In that time of enforced isolation, Abigail felt drawn to writing about her relationship with the forest landscape around her home on Lopez Island. Today, Abigail reads two powerful poems from her collection, and she urges us all to slow down, find some stillness, and appreciate the splendour that surrounds us.

    On Mindfulness and Music with Katy Oberle

    On Mindfulness and Music with Katy Oberle

    What does it mean to be mindful? Does mindfulness always need to involve sitting in silence and concentrating on our breath, or can we find more creative ways to practise mindfulness that are better suited to our personalities and lifestyles? Today, I explore the topic of creative mindfulness with coach and singer/songwriter Katy Oberle, and we dive into what mindfulness means to us and how we can use it to relieve stress, enhance mood, and help us navigate through the inevitable ups and downs of life.

    Keith MacPherson on Airplanes and Leadership

    Keith MacPherson on Airplanes and Leadership

    Welcome to the new season of Let’s Connect, where I reflect on the lessons I’ve learned from living through the pandemic and share some of the tools I’ve been using to help navigate these strange and challenging times.

    In this first episode, I dive into mindfulness and creative leadership and suggest practical ways to shift stuck patterns like people-pleasing and perfectionism. I also explain why applying for a private pilot’s license and completing a successful solo flight has helped me face up to my fears and given me an unparalleled sense of freedom.
