Friends recommendation

I would just like to say - thank you
A friend recommended me to listen to your podcast as I have not been feeling myself lately. I find your podcasts calming, thought provoking and I like the fact they are short

Daverave69 ,

Excellent

I have followed Steven and listened to many of his podcasts and I find them incredibly helpful and valuable. If you want to learn more about why you do what you do and how to deal with this world in a harmonious and empowering way I suggest you listen to anything that he broadcasts.

Rod Pascoe ,

Very powerful and inspirational

I’ve listened to many audiobooks and podcasts over the years, many of varying quality and substance.

As a listener you often wonder about the provenance of the author and sometimes this detracts from the substance of the message.

Stephen speaks from the heart, from a place of deep and personal openness and delivers his message humbly and with meaning in a manner that does not come across as teacher to pupil but rather as a friend giving comfort to another.

The topics are broad yet each is linked and brings you to understand more about your place in the world and how you both fit in to the puzzle yet stand out as an individual.

Stephen’s own story is inspiration yet heartbreaking, from accident to happiness with tragedy along the way including losing a best friend at a very young age.

Despite all this Stephen has achieved focus and understanding and passes this on in this series of podcasts in a way that is easy to listen to and leaves you wanting to hear more.

Thoroughly and wholeheartedly recommended to listen to.
