    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.

    Keith Macpherson on Building Confidence

    Keith Macpherson on Building Confidence

    A solo episode of Let’s Connect is a real test of my confidence. Will I be good enough to carry the show? Will people like it? Is everyone laughing at me right now?



    How many times a day do you wonder if you measure up, or worse, convince yourself that you’re a total failure?



    The invitation in today’s episode is to start telling yourself a new story.



    This is the first show of 2021, so I thought it would be perfect to start the year by starting over.



    Confidence. I’ve spent a lifetime chasing how to live with it, authentically. Now, I want to help you find a way to stop second-guessing your every move.



    When I was in grade seven, I wanted so badly to be an actor. But something painful happened that made me start hiding and telling myself I wasn’t good enough. I will share that story in this episode.



    When did you start hiding and feeling like you weren’t good enough?



    I have a formula for self-assuredness to offer you today. It fights off the inner saboteur that wants to keep you feeling small, and it brings you back to the present, where your power is waiting.



    So let’s not wait another minute to get to them now, and leave what was then behind us.

    Why People Heal with Bonnie Schroeder

    Why People Heal with Bonnie Schroeder

    Why do some people heal, while others don’t? Why are some of us content with just a little, while others can never be satisfied, no matter how much they get out of life?



    My guest today on Let’s Connect is someone I fondly call my ginger sister, Bonnie Schroeder, a healing practitioner who has traveled five continents over three decades working as a clinical researcher, in medical management, and doing energy work that merges science and spirit.



    Through this drawn-out pandemic, are you longing for a better moment than this one?



    Bonnie invites us to start small, taking baby steps towards ourselves with curiosity and heartfulness. Her deep call is to provide healing energy medicine, and how she works her magic is a little hard to pin down in words, but I have been through the energy work she offers and it is transformative.



    Resolve to be kind to yourself, starting today. Enjoy some music in this episode.



    And some more good news - the Making Sense of Mindfulness course has just been re-launched, and my personal gift to you is a free video workshop on stress and anxiety. Information on these offerings - and much more - can be found on my website, keithmacpherson.ca



    Bonnie is going to remind us now that our first relationship is with ourselves. Isn’t that a good way to look forward to 2021?
