    Ruby May on Cyclical Living, Deep Rest And New Archetypes

    Ruby May on Cyclical Living, Deep Rest And New Archetypes

    How can we initiate a culture rooted in the cycles of nature and life?
    In this episode Amisha talks to Ruby May, an educator, activist, coach and community leader cultivating a world in which cyclical awareness is integrated into the way we relate and create. The themes of empowerment and who we are beyond our conditioning are threads that weave between all her offerings.
    In this thoughtful conversation Amisha and Ruby consider lives lived guided by cycles that exist within and outside of our bodies; our hormonal cycles and the seasonal cycles of nature. We learn how solstices and equinoxes can be pivot points of reflection offering the opportunity to deepen our listening, stillness and the visioning of our future attuned with nature’s revelations.
    Sharing their personal experiences, they speak of the wisdom and insights we might garner when listening and entrusting life to these powerful rhythms. Ruby reveals her ways of living guided by her womb cycles and how it brings forth kinship with our bodies and connection with our creativity.
    We learn that this way of life offers fundamental pathways to break away from action-mode systems re-connecting us with our sense of play and different rest practices that activate our creativity and integrate our human experiences, especially our vital descend into our personal ‘underworlds’ of deeper layers of pain, grief and fear.
    Living attuned with cycles of life offers opportunities to shift our dominant culture re-channeling our values and resources into supportive community that understands the signals and rhythms of our bodies as deep intelligence that guides life and aligns us with nature; a culture that invites the power of vulnerability and intuition so that new archetypes may emerge amongst us with intention and presence.

    The Way of Beauty - A Call To Beautiful Leadership

    The Way of Beauty - A Call To Beautiful Leadership

    What power does beauty have in shaping our world? 
    "Beautiful leadership is a way of being in the world that honours why you are truly here, and what is possible. This is the leadership of now - of soul - of feeling into what this future call forth in us and in bringing yourself into alignment with this vision - so that you can embody it in this world in small and perhaps big ways. This is the time to not be a follower, but to dive deep into the gifts of your intuition, and bring what is in your heart alive, with courage and grace. Consider it more as becoming a leader of your own life, living with intentionality and the beauty of your soul. This creates ripples. We need you, this is our time." Amisha Ghadiali
    In this first episode of the year, our host Amisha Ghadiali, takes us on an inspiring exploration on why beauty is important and what happens if we open ourselves to live with this presence and grace, no matter what the circumstances. As we find ourselves starting the year amidst more lockdowns and fear, this episode shows us why beauty is important, and what it means to cultivate a reciprocal relationship with this aspect of our aliveness. 
    We explore the power of the way of beauty and the call to beautiful leadership. In the second part of this episode, some graduates of The Beautiful Leadership Immersion share their experiences of the first programme and what it means to them to be a beautiful leader. 

     
    "Beauty has the power to move us, to stop us in our tracks, to transform us. 
    Beauty is deep and layered.
    Beauty invites us into a space of possibility, creativity and imagination.
    Beauty allows us to notice where we are, where we have been and where we might go.

    Beauty embraces complexity, and the paradox of our humanity.

    Beauty cracks us open, captivates us and brings us to grace.

    Beauty connects us to the transcendent nature of our soul.

    Beauty loves the messiness, the process, the awkwardness, the imperfections.

    Beauty invites a recognition of the sacred and our interconnectedness.

    Beauty opens pathways to divine receptivity with the more than human world.  

    Beauty connects us to the power of our dreams.

    Beauty sustains us through our challenges and regenerates us.

    Beauty does not ask for certainty.

    Beauty leads us to wise decisions.

    Beauty is a path of intention.

    Beauty is an offering.

    Beauty is a whole approach to life."

    Sally Kempton on Embodied Intelligence, Intuition and De-conditioning

    Sally Kempton on Embodied Intelligence, Intuition and De-conditioning

    How can we cultivate our intelligence of intuition?
    In this special episode (our last of 2020), spiritual teacher Sally Kempton turns the mic and interviews our visionary host Amisha Ghadiali. 
    Sally Kempton was our guest on Episode 8 and episode 92. She is one of today’s most authentic spiritual teachers. She teaches devotional contemplative tantra—an approach to practice that creates a fusion of knowing and loving. Sally is the author of Meditation for the Love of It, a groundbreaking book on meditation, and Awakening Shakti.   
    During this past year Amisha brought alive a book ‘Intuition: Access your inner wisdom, Trust your instincts, Find your path’. The book shares nine principles, and over 50 practices for cultivating our intuition.
    In this conversation Amisha reveals her personal journey of forming a relationship with her intuition; the influence of her upbringing, the de-conditioning from her intellectual patterns, her wilder explorations and near death experiences, all of which guided her to deepen her understanding of the unseen worlds. She shares her learning experiences with teachers and mystics and eventually her coming of age moment in the presence of a tree arriving in a place of trust with herself, her healing modalities and her intuition.
    We learn that we all have intuition; an embodied intelligence of individual truths and trusts not guided by systems outside of ourselves. However the dominant cultures that forge our systems have somehow tricked us into thinking that we do not have this innate quality or wisdom within. The practices described in Amisha’s book gently guide us into ways of recognising, refining and cultivating this intelligence as part of our evolution;  ways of unleashing this intelligence as a compass leading us into a beautiful future.

    Hop Hopkins on Humility, Climate Justice And Liberatory Imagination

    Hop Hopkins on Humility, Climate Justice And Liberatory Imagination

    How do we create pathways into living our full humanity?
    In this episode Amisha speaks with Hop Hopkins, the Director of Strategic Partnerships for the Sierra Club working to promote economic justice and protection to those most affected by climate change and environmental degradation. He has worked in the labor, the climate justice and the housing justice movement. Hop is an Arborist and a Master Gardener living in community and creating a network of residential food forests supporting the development of stable, human-scale solar self-reliant neighbourhood communities.
    Amisha and Hop explore listening to Earth as a practice of acknowledging our surroundings and our inner voices; an expansive opportunity for becoming conscious, compassionate and empathetic.
    They reveal how the pandemic, climate change and economy are interrelated and how the overarching system we live in impacts us all in its interconnectedness. They share how the global changes activated during the past year are an invitation to use our liberatory imagination in order to craft new governance and economic models, and new models of community support.
    Hop shares his personal experiences of living in a self-reliant community and the advantages of such a support system and sharing economy, especially in times of crisis and times of unlearning. He believes that fostering a culture of failing, learning and humility will help us form pathways into collective leadership rooted in sharing and self-governing communities where we may flourish into living our full humanity.
    This podcast is part of a collaboration with St.Ethelburga’s called ‘Listening to each other, Listening to Earth’.

    Richard Rudd on Intuition, Mystery School And Collective Wisdom

    Richard Rudd on Intuition, Mystery School And Collective Wisdom

    How do we become spiritual anchors amidst the sea of change?
    In this episode Amisha talks with Richard Rudd, an spiritual teacher, writer and award-winning poet. All of Richard’s travels and studies coalesced into a synthesis ‘Gene Keys’ exploring the miraculous possibilities inherent in human DNA. Today Richard continues to teach and travel all over the world applying the ‘Gene Keys’ across many fields, from the practical to the mystical. 
    Amisha and Richard explore intuition as our higher wisdom intelligence that supersedes the fears we are sold and sidesteps the instabilities our systems impose on us. Its signals and languages connect us into the deeper intelligence held within our bodies; a vital skill for grounding and guiding us in our life choices during uncertain times. 
    Richard reveals that intuition led him to great adventures in his younger years travelling the world off the beaten track gathering a feast of experiences that opened up his lifelong spiritual exploration and realisation that life is magical, and that stretching ourselves into unknown places opens many unexpected doors.
    They speak about how his adventures of meeting people allover the world and the deeper studies of various spiritual teachings led him to creating ‘Gene Keys’; a wisdom school that offers a transformational journey designed like a labyrinth where we can move through different levels expanding our consciousness blossoming our gifts into purpose, love, peace and prosperity.
    We learn that we are living in a time of preparation for a new epoch, The Age Of Synthesis, where ancient spiritual teachings and lineages will interact with our playfulness and joy, so we may challenge and stretch them respectfully to gain fresh perspectives and embody them as earthly experiences and practices to uphold us and our future generations amidst a sea of change.
