    S1E16 - What is Breathwork? How is Burnout Driven by Fear? Interview with Carolyn Green PhD, Holotropic Facilitator - Overcoming Loss & How can the Power of Breath Heal You? Remembrance Day Tribute

    S1E16 - What is Breathwork? How is Burnout Driven by Fear? Interview with Carolyn Green PhD, Holotropic Facilitator - Overcoming Loss & How can the Power of Breath Heal You? Remembrance Day Tribute

    Carolyn Green, BSc(PT), PhD, has facilitated over a thousand non ordinary sessions using holotropic breathwork in workshops and individual sessions in BC and Alberta and co-founded thesecretofbreath.com. Carolyn’s research includes areas of pharmaceutical safety and policy. She is a non-practicing physical therapist with decades of experience and has worked in volunteer capacities in China, Africa, the Caribbean and Nepal, training the first Nepalese physical rehabilitation workers. For Carolyn the Holotropic paradigm is powerful and valuable because it blends the best of the western scientific scholarly traditions with the practical wisdom of long standing world spiritual traditions to provide rapid access to the power within. This episode also pays tribute to Remembrance Day traditions old and new, as we continue our way through this pandemic, and find ways to overcome what we have lost. Carolyn also shares some profound insights on where burnout comes from, how burnout relates to our own fears, and why Holotropic breathwork can help us through these difficult times. If you've never heard or tried holotropic breathwork and are dealing with loss, daily work anxiety, or extreme stress, this is your must listen to episode from Season 1!

    S1E15 - Interview with JUNO & WCMA Nominated Musician Cassius Khan: How Music is Divinity, Overcoming Post-Pandemic Depression, Racism in Canada, and How Sharing our Lunches Can Help Heal the World!

    S1E15 - Interview with JUNO & WCMA Nominated Musician Cassius Khan: How Music is Divinity, Overcoming Post-Pandemic Depression, Racism in Canada, and How Sharing our Lunches Can Help Heal the World!

    In today’s episode we interview Cassius Khan, an award winning and JUNO and WCMA nominated Canadian Indian classical musician and maestro known for playing the Tabla while singing Ghazal, a gift predestined for only a few souls every millennia. This is by far one of my favourite interviews of Season 1 because Cassius Khan is a man who shares his story, his journey, with a deep, meaningful and poetic view of life. And because we get into so many important topics like overcoming depression during the pandemic, ways to reduce post-pandemic burnout, tactics to become more resilient, where inspiration actually comes from, plus reincarnation, racism in Canada, Maslow's Hierarchy of needs, the problems with the Canadian and international music scene and music classification system, and just how sharing our lunches can help reconnect and heal the world!

    How’s your energy levels these days? How resilient are you feeling knowing the dark rainy days of fall, or cold snowy days of winter are fast approaching? In today’s episode I have the honour of interviewing Canada’s very own Barnet Breathers, this is a group of men with an extraordinary weekly ritual that brings more energy, strength, and resilience to their days. And it’s all related to something called Wim Hof Breathwork, which it turns out, has some ancient eastern origins. We’ll explain what Wim Hof Breathwork is, why you have to add it to your daily routine right away, and we'll cover all of its many mind blowing health benefits. Lastly, we'll cover the time I met Wim Hof himself, Guinness World record holder of many things, and how, I somehow ended up in 300 lbs of ice water.
