    What shamanic wisdom has to teach us about healing mental illness - Jez Hughes

    What shamanic wisdom has to teach us about healing mental illness - Jez Hughes

    This week's show is with Jez Hughes. Jez Hughes is a British shaman, having studied intensively the path of shamanism for 30 years. His healing journey began when, as a teenager, he experienced a fit that propelled him into an altered state of consciousness. It took a long time to integrate that experience and find healing for the physical and mental disturbances it initiated. This journey that he now understands as a shamanic one lasted for around 17 years and took him through healing and spiritual traditions across the earth until he finally came home to shamanism and found practical methods to cure himself. He has studied with various teachers and indigenous elders across the world.
    Jez's work has featured in the national press, as well as TV and radio and magazines including Sacred Hoop, Natural Health, Kindred Spirit and Soul & Spirit. His first book, The Heart of Life – Shamanic Initiation and Healing in the Modern World, was published in 2015 and his new book The Wisdom of Mental Illness – Shamanism, Mental Health and the Renewal of the World was published by Watkins. Jez’s passion is empowering people to reawaken their ancestors, the land where they reside and their spiritual heritages to heal the relationship between the human and natural world.
    In this conversation, Jez and I explored shamanic wisdom when it comes to mental illness. We spoke about how out of balance with the natural world we are as a culture and how that manifests as mental illness, amongst other things, that although we tend to see mental illness as a personal issue, its really a cultural issue being expressed though individuals, and lastly, how some form of more extreme mental illness may actually be shamanic sickness - seen as an important and necessary part of the initiation of indigenous shamans.
    And we ended the show with Jez giving some practical suggestions for moving towards balance and healing.
    I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
    What you'll learn from this episode: Our modern culture doesn't really understand that there's a balance that's out of balance, so its no wonder we are where we are when it comes to so many things, and especially mental health. For us to understand there's a natural balance between humans and the unseen powers behind nature, allows us to begin the work of returning to balance. As you heard, Jez was not saying that all forms of mental health issues are shamanic sickness - and yet, it's important to understand that some may well be, that gives context and meaning that can be healing in and of itself, both for the person and ultimately the community they'll serve to bring back into balance. Jez suggested going into nature and making offerings and also building and sitting with a fire... these are ways to bring us back to our bodies and begin to create balance, however small, with the natural world.

    How you can find the buried treasure of your soul - Chris Lüttichau

    How you can find the buried treasure of your soul - Chris Lüttichau

    This week's show is with Chris Lüttichau. Chris is the founder of Northern Drum Shamanic Centre, a UK-based educational organisation offering a renewed perspective on traditional shamanic and medicine teachings, and a safe grounding from which to learn them established in 1998.
    He is the keeper of an integral body of teachings that he shares in workshops and ongoing training groups. The teachings cover a broad range of topics from healing and the art of dreaming to spirit contact and the way of the council. Chris is the author of the critically acclaimed book on shamanism 'Calling Us Home – Find Your Path, Your Balance and Your Inner Strength' published in 2017 and 'Animal Spirit Guides: Discover your Power Animal and the Shamanic Path' published 2009. He is an international teacher, and has appeared on TV on BBC 1, and in Denmark on TV2, and has given radio interviews in the USA, Canada, and the UK.
    In this show, Chris and Lian spoke about soul from a shamanic perspective, what it is, what our cultural lack of awareness of soul is creating, the possibility of a more beautiful life from soul and how we can bridge that gap.
    I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.
    What you'll learn from this episode: In shamanic traditions, the soul is of vital importance in living well, the danger otherwise is we'll live from our minds, disconnected from everything else - which is of course, where we've found ourselves culturally As you could probably hear, it really hit me when Chris said that we're all seeking something, not realising what we're seeking is our soul I read a quote by Stuart Douglas: “In the closing remarks of my first book, white Bird, Black serpent, Red Book, I noted that Jung had admitted that he felt that he had failed in what he considered to be his principal task: to awaken people to the fact that they have a soul, which he likened to a treasure buried in a field. I suggested that there was no failure on Jung’s part, rather, the failure was on the part of others for not having fully realised what his life’s work was really all about.“ To find that treasure and bridge the gap of a soulless life to one lived from soul, it can be as simple as allowing the resonance you can feel in your heart to guide you on the path to retrieve it... whether that's through nature-based paths, shamanism, shadow work or joining us in a WTW crucible Resources and stuff that we spoke about: Northern Drum Shamanic Centre Chris Lüttichau Books: Calling Us Home – Find Your Path, Your Balance and Your Inner Strength Animal Spirit Guides: Discover your Power Animal and the Shamanic Path  Chris Lüttichau Facebook accounts: Chris Lüttichau Northern Drum Thank you for listening!

    How to use intimacy to create a more beautiful world - Damien Bohler

    How to use intimacy to create a more beautiful world - Damien Bohler

    This week's show is with Damien Bohler. Damien is the founder and current director of Evolutionary Relating - an educational platform dedicated to transforming culture through evolving the way we relate to ourselves, to each other, to vocation and purpose and the natural world.
    In his core he is an investigator. He is deeply fascinated by the way things work in this human realm. His interests span the exploration of intimacy, love, sexuality, attachment, polarity, human design, integral theory, permaculture, community living and more. His gift is in the ability to synthesise, articulate and transmit dense and disparate information and delights in doing so through the mediums of writing, facilitating, teaching and coaching.
    In this conversation, Damien and I explored the possibility of using portal of intimacy to create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible, as Charles Eisenstein says. We spoke about why we're so obsessed with relationships, the wounds that keep us from experiencing what we most desire, how healing those wounds opens us to create a more connected, loving world.
    I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
    What you'll learn from this episode: I love that Damien's work with intimacy, stemmed from his deepest passion of ecology The notion of Telos is one that I believe we begin to experience for ourselves once we devote to living from soul - it becomes the north star than guides us from acorn to oak When we heal our childhood attachment wounds, we become available to create partnerships as the column that true community forms around and then that opens us up to connection with everything Resources and stuff that we spoke about Sign up for ‘love letters from Damien’ emails, and check out courses on offer here: Evolutionary Relating Follow Damien in Social Media: Instagram: @evorelating Facebook: Damien Bohler Thank you for listening!

    How to experience Spirit via the body... in and down rather up and out - Steve James

    How to experience Spirit via the body... in and down rather up and out - Steve James

    This week's show is with Steve James. Steve travels internationally teaching somatic practices, meditation, as well as leading explorations in contemplative & relational realms. Known for his direct, grounded approach and his dedication to first-hand research, he has extensive experience in elite athletic performance, contemplative and spiritual disciplines, the arts, extreme outdoor survival, and human behaviour.
    Steve’s unique range of experiences and understanding of human behaviour, high performance, spirituality, and interpersonal relationships is highly sought after by leading figures at the highest levels of the arts, entertainment, and business. In his private client practice he specialises in the unique interpersonal and strategic challenges faced by very successful and highly visible individuals. Ongoing clients include Oscar-winning actors, multi Grammy winning musicians, CEO’s, and fund managers.
    Steve is the creator of the Movement Koan Method® and the host of the Guru Viking Podcast.
    In this show, Steve and Lian spoke about what we might call descension and ascension, given Steve's work with meditation and embodiment gives him an unusual level of experience of both.
    We got into mysticism, immanence, paying attention to the mundane, Hedonic valence, using the body as a place to enquiry and more.
    I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.
    What you'll learn from this episode: Rather than rushing up and out to transcendence, Steve's found his own tendency in immanence, which is the idea that God is everywhere and in everything. Finding beauty in mundane. The practice of spirituality as a dedication or as a benefit for everyone can be helpful, as the focus on how it benefits oneself can only motivate us so far We can use the body as the venue of exploration... I loved Steve's example of a Movement Koan practice of balancing on one leg and then noticing different experiences that arise. "Intimacy is feeling what's there to be felt" I love that.

    How to use magic to create the life your heart desires - JP Morgan

    How to use magic to create the life your heart desires - JP Morgan

    This week's show is with JP Morgan, JP guides creators in being more powerful in every area of their life and work. The entrepreneurs and artists he coaches all share an aspiration for excellence and an obsession with mastery. Through regular loving and confronting dialogue, which compliments their daily practice of self-cultivation, JP’s clients discover how their mind creates their world and how through surrender they can gain greater control, more fulfilment and exponential results in their life and work.
    In its essence, JP Morgan has been supporting entrepreneurs and artists around the world since the late 90’s, though this work became his profession in 2010. Since then, he has supported numerous individuals in growing their peace, joy and success in the world through growing themselves.
    Beyond his the daily work with clients, he has been invited to share his ideas and spirit on numerous stages. (TEDx, Global Citizens Forum, BBC & SkyTV, YES Group, Interesting Talks London, InsideOut Movement, METal International, educational institutions, etc.) At a private event, attended by many of the world’s billionaires, JP was invited to speak on creating a world world without borders. At the University of Cambridge, he was the subject of a covert study between the psychology and business departments where researchers sought to understand the impact of his state of being. He leads a team of Creating Champions who teach, coach, and guide thousands of entrepreneurs and artists in being more free, loving, and powerful. By learning and embodying the Creating perspective, their clients achieve a union of outcomes in spiritual growth, material success, and social impact.
    Previous to his current work with leaders, and post formal studies in Physics and Mathematics, JP founded a real estate business and then (from a backpack) founded a web media company serving local and global non-profits. He has lived nomadically while travelling the world for three years, developed real estate, traveled the world for years on end, coached human rights leaders, recorded albums & toured with his band, created a kids library in Cambodia, learned to scuba dive & pilot gliders, published writing and photography, competed as a black belt & triathlete, trained with Buddhist monks in India, cycled toured for months and many other adventures. In recent years, his adventures have turned inward as his family came to be. 
    In 2013, in the Riveria Maya, JP married a wise, loving and beautiful British-Indian woman. In March of 2016 they gave birth to their first child, a boy. Today, he and his wife now reside with their two young boys in the countryside at 4000′ on a mountain in Maui. 
    In this conversation, JP and I explored magic, the way our paths have unfolded over the past two years, the magical principles we've seen and tangible examples of how we both create our life with magic.
    I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
    What you'll learn from this episode: JP's description of magic is the surrender to a world of correlation as causation... everything is entangled. Magic is about allowing yourself to have a myth and to have it do its work on you and your life. He also described magic as conversations with people, conversations with the self, and that those conversations creates our world, not just experience, but our actual world. Something important we touched on is that living magically doesn't mean we are fixed rigidly at all times on our vision, a magical life is a welcoming of the swing back and forth from fear to our vision.



    I absolutely loved how JP described how he prioritises the means over the end,  the "means" meaning the way he creates his life magically. For me too it's become the only way I want to live.
