    Eps. 172: Wild Hope; Guest, Gayle Boss

    My guest is author Galye Boss. Her stunning Advent book about how various North American animals wait out and survive the dark, cold winter was an instant classic. Now, she releases a fitting second book, this time for Lent. This too, is another gorgeously-illustrated book that features 24 amazing animals of the world that are vanishing from existence. (David G. Klein, Illustrator)



    Our conversation covers topics in both her books and a lovely reading from Wild Hope by Gayle.

    Madeleine L'Engle: Faith, Art, Freedom, Choice [SSL149]

    Madeleine L'Engle: Faith, Art, Freedom, Choice [SSL149]

    What happens when we want comfort? Someone may want to give it to us in exchange for our power of choice. We lose our inherent humanizing freedoms when we give over our decision-making ability to people and companies to make our lives “better”.



    A Soul School Lesson with a reading and reflection from "Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art" by Madeleine L'Engle. Important ideas on choice, freedom, art, faith and being human.

    HOW-TO: De-Trigger [SSL148]

    HOW-TO: De-Trigger [SSL148]

    Do people seem more angry and triggered? Are you? I have been.



    There are more opportunities for us to be reminded of past pain. When that happens, the regions for rational thought and empathy shut off in our brain. Today on on Soul School I will use Dr Liz Mullinar’s invaluable resource “Heal for Life” to teach us how to truly DE-TRIGGER ourselves.



    I’ve employed this valuable wisdom many times already. Pass this episode along. Everyone needs to be aware of how past trauma resurfaces!

Refreshing, innovative, inspiring

Spark My Muse is, quite simply, a podcast I wish I’d discovered earlier. Lisa’s relaxed style combined with great insight & excellent interviewing skills make this a podcast not to miss. With some incredible guests from all sorts of fields, this podcast is a great resource for anyone looking to grow creatively, spiritually, and holistically. Love it!
